1. It's leap day today - enjoy the bonus time


Who wouldn't like an extra 24 hours once in four years? That's what the 29th of Feb is, a bonus day.

February may be ending, but it is still in the limelight. Valentineís Day is behind us, but today is Leap yearís day or Leap day!

My sonís crŤche is celebrating the day with a funny hat competition; and most women will heed customary practices by taking the bull by its horns and proposing marriage to their mates - since today is the day that women "can" do so without being frowned upon.

3. Leap year/Time quotes and Trivia


"Live each season as it passes; breathe the air, drink the drink, taste the fruit, and resign yourself to the influences of each."

~ Henry David Thoreau


What happened in the middle of the twentieth century that will not happen again for 4,000 years?

The year 1961 can be read upside down and that won't happen again until 6009!

Have a wonderful extra 24 hours, don't waste it!


3. Our Vision and purpose


Here in, we believe in the power of words. We believe in the absolute necessity and importance of enhanced & effective delivery of speeches to create better understanding, empowerment and information. Talk should teach, guide, heal, empower and inspire. It should not destroy, demean, lie, gossip, cheat, swear, or destroy - that kind is cheap and useless. That is our vision and that is what we stand for.
