9-26 Today is the official love note day! TRULY! Did you know that the oldest surviving love letter in the English language was dated for this day in 1477? The note was written by Margery Brews to her fiance John Pasto. Why not send an ecard to someone you love, just because. My favorite ecard services are Blue Mountain and 123 Greetings. Today is also Shamu the Whale Day. Maybe you can send Shamu a love note! I wish I could swim. I would really love to swim with Shamu!
9-27 Google's Official Birthday! Well, not actually. Google celebrated September 7 (the day when the company was incorporated) as its birthday till 2005. In 2005 Google changed the date to September 27 to make it coincide with the announcement of the record number of pages that the search engine was indexing. I really don't care what day we celebrate. I all for eating cake any day of the week and if there is one digital service worth celebrating, it Google!!
9-28 National Good Neighbor Day! This day was created to acknowledge and celebrate the importance of a good neighbor. It is a blessing to have a good neighbor but it is even a greater thing to BE a good neighbor.
9-29 World Heart Day is today! World Heart Day on 29 September is the World Heart Federation's biggest platform for raising awareness about cardiovascular disease (CVD).
9-30 Today is Ask a Stupid Question Day. This was a new one on me. You know, everyone always says there is no such thing as a dumb question but I totally disagree! So the first dumb question would be why are we celebrating dumb questions?
No one seems to really know the actual date of this day, although most folks believe it is the last school day of September. I guess by then teachers have heard (and reheard) every dumb question in the book. Instead of letting it bother you, it seems appropriate to try and celebrate it.
_Hi, my name is Melanie Lewis. I am an Instructional Technology Resource Teacher for Amherst County Public Schools,

I DO NOT have to give grades. Wonderful, huh? Let me know how I can help you better integrate technology into your classroom.
