Please please if you get an email that has been forwarded and forwarded and has questionable information (which most do) check with or for what is true and what isn't. AND if you are going to forward emails, PLEASE DELETE THE EMAIL ADDRESSES that are on the header!


The National Vietnam Veterans Art Museum, Chicago Ill.
When visitors first enter the museum, they will hear a sound like wind chimes coming from above them and their attention will be drawn upward 24 feet to the ceiling of the two-story high atrium.

Dog tags of the more than 58,000 service men and women who died in the Vietnam War hang from the ceiling of the National Vietnam Veterans Art Museum in Chicago on Veterans Day, November 11, 2010. The 10-by-40-foot sculpture, entitled Above & Beyond, was designed by Ned Broderick and Richard Steinbock. The tens of thousands of metal dog tags are suspended 24 feet in the air, 1 inch apart, from fine lines that allow them to move and chime with shifting air currents. Museum employees using a kiosk and laser pointer help visitors locate the exact dog tag with the imprinted name of their lost

January 16th
National Nothing Day
When: Always January 16th. This is simply a day for nothing.

This date is an "un-event". The expectation is that we do not create or otherwise promote this day. In other words, we do nothing. And to say anything more would contradict the purpose of this day.

Celebrate this day by doing ... nothing. Of course, that assumes that doing nothing is ok with your boss.
Origin of this day.... it was created in 1973 by newspaperman Harold Pullman Coffin. Other than that, we found nothing about this day.
