National Fun At Work Day! @ National Fun At Work Day!
Jan 28 all-day

Fight the workday doldrums on January 28. It’s National Fun At Work Day!
Many people spend a good portion of their lives at work, so why should they not try to enjoy it? While looking to find fun things to do at work, let your imagination be the leader. Make sure to obtain your boss’s approval for whatever fun and exciting things you choose to do. Better yet, get your boss involved in the fun!
Dave Hemseth and Leslie Yerkes, co-authors of 301 Ways to Have Fun at Work say, “Organizations that integrate fun into work have lower levels of absenteeism, greater job satisfaction, increased productivity, and less downtime.”

National Puzzle Day @ National Puzzle Day
Jan 29 all-day

Exercise your problem brain with a puzzle. January 29th is National Puzzle Day.
Whether it’s a crossword, jigsaw, trivia, word searches, brain teasers or Soduku, puzzles put our minds to work.
Studies have found that when we work on a jigsaw puzzle, we use both sides of the brain, and spending time daily working on puzzles improves memory, cognitive function and problem-solving skills.
Word searches and crossword puzzles have the obvious benefit of increasing vocabulary and language skills.
Sudoku, a puzzle sequencing a set of numbers on a grid, exercises the brain as well. By testing memory and logical thinking, this puzzle stimulates the brain and can improve number skills.
The bottom line is, puzzles stimulate the brain, keeping it active and practicing its skills

“The last day to register to vote in this primary election is Jan. 31st, and that is coming up soon,” Jami Cowart, Voter Services Director said.  “Early voting begins on Feb. 14th and ends on the 25th,” she added.

The last day to apply for a ballot by mail is February 18th.  “A voter must fill out a new application to vote by mail every year.  Because the application form now requires the voter to include an identifying number such as a driver’s license or partial social security number, the League is encouraging vote by mail applicants to call the Elections Administrator’s office right away to get a copy of the new application,” Cowart said.  “Applicants should include all their identifying numbers, and should provide a phone number and email address to allow the Elections Administrator to get in contact in order to fix any problems with the application,” Cowart said.

The phone numbers for the Elections Administrators are:

Potter County – 806-379-2299

Randall County – 806-468-5510                                                                        #

National Croissant Day @ National Croissant Day
Jan 30 all-day

In the United States, National Croissant Day is observed each year on January 30th. Croissants are a buttery, crescent-shaped rolls that are crispy on the outside and soft on the inside.
The key to a perfect croissant is laminating the dough. Laminating the dough is a process by which butter is folded into the mixture creating multiple thin layers of butter and dough. The result is a mouth-watering flaky crust and airy body.
Legend surrounds this pastry, as is often the case with a popular, worldly treat. What is known, is that crescent-shaped breads have been found around the world for ages. One of these was the Kipferl which originated in Austria as far back as the 13th century. This nonlaminated bread is more like a roll.
Credit for the croissant we know today is given to an Austrian military officer, August Zang. In 1939 he opened a Viennese bakery in Paris introducing France to Viennese baking techniques.
