We celebrate all of them today!
SHRIMP is so popular that, on average, each person living in the US eats more than 4 pounds of shrimp each year. This means that the country consumes around 1.4 billion pounds of shrimp annually. Throughout the world, at least 9 billion pounds of shrimp are consumed each year.
Today, the highest consumer of shrimp per capita is Japan, with the United States coming in second. With more than 2000 different species that exist throughout the globe, shrimp can range from small to large and also range in color. The most common species of shrimp, however, are Rock Shrimp, Pink Shrimp, Tiger Shrimp and White Shrimp.
GOLF is celebrated today. This special day actively encourages more people to take up the sport. Over the years, industry leaders in the U.S. have worked to make golf more accessible and affordable since most people consider the sport elitist and very expensive.
The good news? Golf participation has increased dramatically, particularly during the 2020 pandemic wherein the need for outdoor recreation spiked up. National Golf Day reinforces the sport’s emotional, social, physical, and environmental benefits. It is a day to remember that this excellent sport could be for everyone.
RECEPTIONISTS! They’re there when you call to make an appointment, they call you to make sure you remember to make it. When you need a referral, they’re the ones who take the call and make sure it happens, and when there’s a cancellation they call to let you know of the change.
They do the paperwork that keeps everything in order, and sometimes, they get their supervisor’s lunch while dealing with the concerns of customers all day long.
Without a receptionist, there’s no way an office could go about the day to day business smoothly, so WE THANK YOU!
Today is also the first day to vote on your top two of the final five new dog logos for the Cleveland Browns. Here’s the link.
