This is our twelfth year of making a calendar for ourselves, and we have been filling them with silly dates and events. Do you remember when Google launched GoogleCountry and took over much of South America, or when the Niña and the Pinta called shirts in 1492 and the Santa Maria was not happy about being “skins” for 2 months? Ah, those were the days…
This year we chose a different tack. The last few years have not been easy on many of our clients both local and around the world. We’ve all had to cut back and be a bit more purposeful and wise. That is why we have centered this year’s calendar on mankind’s 50 years of man in space, beginning with Yuri Gagarin being the first in space on April 12th, 1961. It isn’t a big jump to put these hard years together with getting humans into space. It would be an understatement to say there was a lot of hard work and effort put in by hundreds of thousands to get people into space. And that is exactly it — we’ve done it before, and we can do it again. Sure, there is no easy answer to all of this, but at least we can all put our noses to the grindstone and crank out the best we can do. With that spirit in mind, this calendar is for all of us that will be giving it our best shot, with long hours, dedication, ingenuity and hopefully some wisdom.
If you would like a calendar [and you are in Tucson] drop us a line and we’ll work on getting a calendar out to your workplace. We’ll bring extras, just in case anyone you work with wants one [or you can just take one and become the envy of your coworkers – that would be our choice].
If you don’t want to wait, here is a pdf of the calendar that you can print out, though it isn’t very legible on an 8.5×11 sheet.
