If this is your birthday, congratulations! Two names in country music are sharing this date with you. Lari White, born in Dunedin, Florida, in 1965. The soulful vocalist nets three hits in the 1990s and acts in the Tom Hanks movie "Cast Away." She also becomes the first woman to produce an album by a major male country star: Toby Keith's "White Trash With Money". Happy 50th, Lari! Also turning a year older today, Darius Rucker, born in Charleston, South Carolina in 1966. The lead singer of Hootie + The Blowfish, he becomes a solo country artist in 2008, winning the Country Music Association's New Artist of the Year in 2009. Happy 49th, Darius!

This Is Receptionist Day!!

George Marks

The purpose of this day is two-fold. First, to give recognition to receptionists. After all, they are the first person your customers see when they walk through the door of your company. The great first impression is molded in large part thanks to your smiling, cheerful receptionist. Second, is to promote pride and professionalism in the position.

Today, how about treating your receptionist with flowers, candy, or a lunch!

Now Let's P-A-R-T-Y!!
