National Fun At Work Day
Not sure what most of you do at your regular job, but whatever it is, it's National Fun At Work Day. Try to do something to make work a little more fun than it might ordinarily be. For those of us who have retired from the work force, I guess we can try to make it National Fun At Retirement Day. Anyone care to share what your main job is?
And for those inquiring minds who really want to know, today is also National Bubble Wrap Appreciation Day. Here's a little historical background on this amazing product.
The primary purpose of bubble wrap is to protect fragile items either in shipping or storage. People also get enjoyment from popping the bubbles in bubble wrap. Engineers Marc Chavannes and Alfred Fielding sealed two shower curtains together in 1956 in the town of Hawthorne, New Jersey. This technique created a smattering of air bubbles which the engineers initially thought would make a great wallpaper! Sales for the wallpaper never materialized, so they moved to selling the product as greenhouse insulation.
The Sealed Air Corporation was founded in 1960, but Air Cap (name before it became Bubble Wrap) wasn’t used for shipping until IBM starting shipping the 1401 computer in 1961. Bubble Wrap is a trademarked brand of Sealed Air Corporation.
