    Did you know...

    (received in my email March 23 2017)

    ... that today is OK Day? The first recorded printed use of "OK" occurred in Boston's Morning Post on this day in 1839. It was first used as a joke, a shortening of the phrase "oll korrect," itself an incorrect spelling of "all correct," but it held on and is still alive and kicking today! Happy birthday, OK! ;-)

    OK, seems like there is a day for everything but they never seem to overlap...?? Weird.

    Apparently, OK day is overlapping with National Puppy Day.
