Follow Me On Instagram at sharpharmade! . Saturday September 17, 2016 is Coastal Cleanup Day. "Every year thousands of tons of garbage winds up in the oceans, with 60% of that being composed of plastic material. Plastics especially last a very long time in the ocean, and are in such abundance that there are 46,000 individual pieces of plastic litter for every square mile of ocean. Plastics are very hazardous to marine life. This day encourages us to get out to our beaches and help to limit this problem by cleaning up the garbage that has washed up on shore, and left by visitors. Trash in the water impacts the world on many levels, including harming wildlife, humans, and impacting the livelihood of those who work on the ocean. It causes economic damage by affecting tourism and recreation and the money they bring into those communities that are the ocean shore. The Ocean Conservatory knows that solving these issues requires bold initiatives and eliminating the sources of the trash that damages the ocean. Empowering people to take an active role in the preservation and cleaning up of the ocean are important parts of helping conservation of the ocean. By spreading tips and techniques to help reduce trash they help people everywhere aid the cleanup of our oceans. There’s a lot of options out there, starting with something as simple as taking a day at the beach and carrying a roll of garbage bags. Clean up the mess on the beach and help to reduce the amount of garbage that gets into the ocean by hauling it away. You can also check in with the Ocean Conservatory to get tips and tricks to help you be more conscientious about your lifestyle and the effect it has on the ocean. Coastal Cleanup Day is your chance to really make a difference, and help others to do the same!" ^sPm - #sharpharmade From 'Days of the Year'. #fit #coast #coastal #cleanup #coastalcleanupday #wp #fb #ig #insta #blog #linkinbio #lpt #tweet #twitter #buffer #share #pop #protect #care #follow #like . @Instagram @sharpharmade

Follow Me On Instagram at sharpharmade! . Saturday September 17, 2016 is Apple Dumpling Day. "With their origins as a humble peasant dish from the colder European climates of England, Bavaria and Austria, apple dumplings have crossed the Atlantic and spread their sweet smell to the New World. Over the centuries, they have become an internationally loved treat found in many grandmothers’ cookbooks and certainly worth of their own day of celebration. Originally, apple dumplings used to be boiled and steamed, and the word itself comes from German dampf, meaning steam. Nowadays, this aromatic dish is typically baked and stuffed with spiced and sweetened Granny Smith apples, previously cored and peeled. The crucial spice is cinnamon, though nutmeg and lemon zest are popular as well. People across Europe and Northern America bake the dumplings for dessert all the time during the apple harvest season, but they also enjoy them year round using dried apples if necessary. Revisit the smells of your childhood and celebrate the Apple Dumpling Day by serving this rustic treat with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or drenched in decadent caramel sauce." ^sPm - #sharpharmade From 'Days of the Year'. #fit #wp #fb #blog #follow #like #share #appledumpling #appledumplingday #apple #dumpling #peasant #dish #tweet #twitter #buffer #tagsforlike #dessert #linkinbio #lpt #tasty #awesome #delicious #dessert #icecream . @Instagram @sharpharmade

Follow Me On Instagram at sharpharmade! . Saturday September 17, 2016 is International Eat An Apple Day. “A seed hidden in the heart of an apple is an orchard invisible” – Welsh Proverb . "Apples are absolutely delicious, and they’re a healthy addition to anyone’s diet (unless you’re allergic). The history of the apple goes back a long way, and can be traced all the way back to present-day Turkey, and from there they’ve spread out across the entire world to become one of the most ubiquitous fruits ever. This day has its roots in thousands of cultural celebrations around the globe where the apple is honored. Apples are delicious, and are part of the identity of many countries food cultures. Consider the American Apple Pie, so much a part of their identity that it to state something is truly, fundamentally American, people have been known to state “As American As Apple Pie.” Apple dumplings, Apple Custards, Caramel Apples at Halloween, these delicious fruits appear all over the map as part of peoples favorite treats. Ireland was even known to make a Beef Apple Stew that decidedly had its own flavor pallet, sweet instead of savory. This day encourages you to share in these experiences, and perhaps create some of your own. The best way to celebrate is right there in the name. Eat an apple! And there are so many ways to enjoy them, including straight off the tree, sliced and dipped in peanut butter, caramel, or dusted with cinnamon. Of course the best way in our opinion is to consume them as part of that delicious treat, the apple pie. You want to top it off with the ultimate topping? A hot slice with a scoop of vanilla ice cream can’t be beat." ^sPm - #sharpharmade From 'Days of the Year'. #fit #blog #internationaleatanappleday #eatanappleday #eat #apple #follow #like #wp #fb #lpt #linkinbio #international #tweet #twitter #share #tagsforlike #buffer #ig #insta #tasty #awesome #fruit #snack #americanpie . @Instagram @sharpharmade

Follow Me On Instagram at sharpharmade! . Saturday September 17, 2016 is Constitution Day. “Constitution Day falls on 17th September, the anniversary of the official signing of the US constitution in 1787. The document stood as the result of tireless work and compromise between the delegates of the Constitutional Convention – basically to bring about an agreement between the states which would allow a central government the power to enforce its decisions and allow the USA to stand as an international force, while maintaining a reasonable level of independence within the separate states. Of course, to this day the constitution of 1787 has formed the basis for the development and running of the USA as we know it, priding itself on its roots in democracy, rights and the social contract. Certainly some aspects of the constitution have been contested over the years as attitudes change over time – key issues including slavery and women in employment, while the core elements have remained. Education about the constitution is hugely encouraged, particularly on Constitution Day. Schools and educational establishments receiving any form of federal funding are required to teach the history of the American constitution on this day, but more than this many establishments such as universities and colleges look to celebrate the constitution by holding celebratory leisure events including ‘Constitution Trivia Quizzes’ and community fairs. Constitution based merchandise is also made available in different forms from free paperback copies to t-shirts with constitution quotes. So get involved with the learning this Constitution Day and find out about the history and background of the constitution that defines the USA – and once you’ve done that, you can buy the t-shirt!" ^sPm - #sharpharmade From 'Days of the Year'. #fit #constitution #american #blog #wp #fb #ig #insta #share #buffer #linkinbio #lpt #follow #like #tweet #twitter #pop #awesome #blessed #tagsforlike #usa #landofthefree #america . @Instagram @sharpharmade

Follow Me On Instagram at sharpharmade! . Friday September 16, 2016 is Concussion Awareness Day. “It’s just a bump on the head right? It’s all part of the game and it’s not like its bleeding! You feel fine! And weren’t you wearing a helmet? Or it was just grass right? How hard could the ground really be? How much damage can a soccer ball really do? It’s round and full of air! The truth of the matter is that a concussion can be a serious issue, and they tend to happen during sports more than any other time, Concussion Awareness Day reminds you to learn the signs, and take them seriously. Concussions are serious business! Concussions stand out as the single most common type of traumatic brain injury, and is known by many names in the medical industry. None of them sound good, mild brain injury, mild traumatic brain injury, minor head trauma, not a thing any of us want to see listed on our medical report. Our brains, after all, are us. Treatment is simple enough, you just have to chill out and rest both your body and your mind, which means no video games, no texting, and no school work. No, this isn’t a good way to get out of taking that final, Concussions can have some serious repercussions. So this day is a chance to help yourself and others by learning how to identify the signs of a concussion and what to do in the event that someone you know sustains one, or you suspect they may have. Concussion Awareness Day is your alert to take care of your brain, and to teach others how to watch out for each other." ^sPm - #sharpharmade From 'Days of the Year'. #fit #concussionawarenessday #concussion #awareness #wp #fb #blog #ig #insta #concern #health #tweet #twitter #buffer #follow #like #life #pop #tagsforlike #wellbeing #wellness #treatment #aid #firstaid #education #educate . @Instagram @sharpharmade

Follow Me On Instagram at sharpharmade! . Friday September 16, 2016 is Play Doh Day. “Play-Doh Day is an opportunity for everyone, whether a child or simply young at heart, to celebrate this iconic modelling clay. Play-Doh was originally developed in the 1930’s, not as a toy but as a product for cleaning wallpaper! It was not until the 1950’s that it was marketed as a toy, in the trademark vibrant colors of red, blue, yellow and white. Two billion tubs of the enchanting putty have now been sold. If all that Play-Doh were rolled into a giant ball, it would weigh as much as 2000 Statues of Liberty! The range of colors now includes Paradise Purple, silver and gold. Some people like to keep the colors separate, but if you are being creative, your Play Doh may well end up the color of mud! . Celebrate Play-Doh Day: release your inner child, choose your favorite colors and get creative!" ^sPm - #sharpharmade From 'Days of the Year'. #fit #blog #wp #fb #tagsforlike #linkinbio #lpt #tweet #twitter #buffer #pop #ig #insta #follow #like #playdoh #dough #playdough #fun #funtime #awesome #toy #play #celebrate #favorite #create #imagination #model #innerchild . @Instagram @sharpharmade

Follow Me On Instagram at sharpharmade! . Friday September 16, 2016 is Working Parents Day. “Working Parents Day is a day to celebrate those amazing parents who work hard all year to provide for their families. Being a parent is tough and often involves balancing a full-time job, child care and a marriage or relationship. Many parents work incredibly hard in order to ensure their kids have food, clothing, shelter and a whole host of luxury items in order to make their childhood great. Although the origins of Working Parents Day are unknown, it seems logical to suggest it was created by an overworked, under-appreciated mother or father, seeking some basic recognition for their efforts. Regardless of who created it and why, this is a day for parents to put their feet up, relax and take a much-needed break from all the hard graft. It is also a day for children to show their appreciation and potentially take on some of the day-to-day household chores." ^sPm - #sharpharmade From 'Days of the Year'. #fit #blog #tweet #twitter #wp #fb #ig #insta #pop #follow #like #buffer #linkinbio #lpt #tagsforlike #workingparents #workingparentsday #working #parent #celebrate #caretakers #awesome #share #takecareofyourkids #takecareof . @Instagram @sharpharmade

Follow Me On Instagram at sharpharmade! . Friday September 16, 2016 is Step Family Day. “Things have changed a lot in the past decades, where once marriage was a life-long institution & divorce practically unheard of, now more than half of all marriages end in divorce. This isn’t as bad a thing as it sounds, as many of those ‘lifelong marriages’ were held together in spite of internal abuse, general unhappiness, & worse due to societal pressures. Regardless of your opinion on divorce & marriage, something good has come from this new paradigm, & that’s the step family. This day recognizes all those who live in blended families. Being part of a step family can be really challenging, you’re coming into a place with people that weren’t part of your family before, & suddenly they’re uncles, sisters, brothers, even parents to you. How confusing must it be for people who yesterday weren’t related at all to suddenly be considered your siblings? That being said, growing up with a step family can be really rewarding, especially when everybody works together to overcome the challenges & create an amazing blended family. To make things even more difficult, if you’re part of a step family, it almost certainly means that you’ve recently had to deal with going through a divorce. This brings up all sorts of challenges, jealousy amongst siblings & birth parents, & the hostilities that doubtless led to the end of the previous marriage. These certainly aren’t part of everyone’s experience, & in fact they don’t have to be the experience that you have. Step families come together every day that are strong & act like an extended family rather than a divided one. This day is dedicated to appreciating those who have joined your family, & educating yourself on the challenges you face so you can overcome them together. Start the day off by telling your step family that you love them. Then spend the day with them working to build your relationship further." ^sPm - #sharpharmade From 'Days of the Year' . #fit #stepparent #step #parent #wp #fb #blog #ig #insta #tweet #twitter #buffer #tagsforlike #pop #follow #like #family #blended #lpt #linkinbio . @Instagram @sharpharma
