Tuesday, February 20th is National Love Your Pet Day.  National Love Your Pet Day is a day set aside to give extra attention to and pamper your pets. Before you begin your work day, give your pet one some extra love. With two cats and two dogs, this is a big holiday in our household.  


Did You Know

On February 18, 1946, the first cable television test was successfully completed. Television signals were transmitted from Washington D.C. to New York City over an AT&T coaxial cable. During the telecast, General Dwight Eisenhower placed a wreath at the base of the statue in Lincoln Memorial and others made speeches. Considered a successful webcast by engineers, the Time magazine called it "as blurred as an early Chaplin movie."  


Have a great week and keep networking!
