October 7, 2013: You’ll find a battle of dates for Techies Day — some believe it’s October 3, and others believe it’s the first Monday in October. I’m rolling with the Monday theory, so it’s always on a work day. It just makes more sense to me. My tech is also celebrating Blue Shirt Day, which is a worldwide effort to stop bullying. Which I’m sure all of us techie types appreciate. Finally, Ripe Pumpkin Day is when the pumpkins are supposedly ready for harvesting. Just in time to get them to the parking lot pumpkin patch for Halloween!
