National Umbrella Day | National Clean Out Your Computer Day

Transcript for February 10th

Welcome to February 10th on the National Day Calendar.  Today we celebrate an ancient wonder that keeps us on the go come rain or shine and a pep-talk for your lagging puter.  More after the break from our founder, Marlo Anderson.  

Did you know that your bumbershoot is older than dirt?  That’s right, even the Egyptians sported “brollies” or umbrellas as we call them today.  In ancient China the paper parasols were waterproofed with lacquer and wax for their first use in the rain.  From the Latin word “umber” meaning shadow or shade, umbrellas now come in all colors and sizes, so you can celebrate National Umbrella Day in style, whether you’re singing in the rain or Poppin’ in from the clouds. 

 And if your computer is running just a bit too slow, you may need to give it a “digital spoon full of sugar.”  National Clean Out Your Computer Day reminds you that even your PC needs some TLC from time to time. So defrag away those cluttered old files, and if you’re not sure how, order up some advice from your favorite Geek.  They commonly work for cheetos and coke and other things that make the medicine go down.
