The Pro Bowl used to be played the week after the Super Bowl, but in 2010 the NFL began holding the Pro Bowl the week before the Super Bowl in order to improve viewership.

When is Easter?

In 2024, Easter will be held on March 31 for most Christians because they follow the Gregorian calendar, and on May 5 for the Eastern Orthodox Church, which follows the Julian calendar.

Easter happens on a different Sunday every year and follows the lunar calendar and always occurs on the first Sunday after the Paschal Full Moon, which is the first Sunday following the full Moon that occurs on or after the March or spring equinox.

In this way, Easter is what is called a moveable feast (since its exact date is not the same every year).

Later, on June 19, 1865, U.S. Maj. Gen. Gordon Granger delivered an order to the people of Galveston, Texas, declaring that all slaves in the State of Texas to be free.

Later that year, on December 6, 1865, the 13th amendment to the Constitution was ratified, which effectively freed all slaves throughout the United States.

How do I register to vote?

The US federal government has a website that helps you to register to vote in both state and national elections:

You can also register to vote in the state where you reside. In most US states, you need to fill out a voter registration card, sometimes doable online, usually provided by your county’s board of electors in order to vote in an upcoming election.

You must be over 18 years of age and typically be able to provide proof of positive identification. In some states, if you have been convicted of a felony, you may not be able to vote or may need to have had your right to vote restored.

In the state of Virginia, for example, you can register to vote at any of the following:

  • Online
  • Local voter registration office
  • State or local government offices when applying or re-certifying for Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF), SNAP, WIC, Medicaid, or Rehabilitation Services.
  • Government offices in the State that provide State-funded programs primarily engaged in providing services to person with disabilities
  • Armed forces recruitment offices
  • Public libraries
  • Virginia Department of Elections office
  • Department of Motor Vehicles offices
  • Voter Registration Drives

How to write a cover letter?

Cover letters have four main parts:

  1. Address
  2. Salutation
  3. Body
  4. Signature

If you are writing a cover letter for a job, address the hiring manager (or recruiter), identify what position you are applying for, identify why you are the right candidate, and close by thanking them for their consideration and identifying the best way to get ahold of you for an interview.

Keep your cover letter fairly short. Remember, the person reading them—if they even read them—has many, many letters to read and review. So, hit the highlights, and give them a way to contact you. I have pasted an example cover letter below, which I formatted in what is called block style, with all paragraphs flush left (you don’t have to use this style, but it is common):

Dear Ms. Smith:

I am applying for your open ad copywriter position at your Los Angeles location.

Let me get right to the point; I’m the right candidate for the following reasons. During my business writing career, I’ve authored marketing collateral, print ads, white papers, and website copy. And then in 2010, I started my own consulting business and wrote all my own marketing collateral and ad and web copy. Since 2013, I’ve been ghostwriting nonfiction books for select clients, and again, I wrote all my own ad copy for this effort.

I am team player and am easy to work with. I take direction well and always try to do what is best for the team.

I am free most days to talk during regular business hours. My contact information is below.

Thank you for your consideration. I look forward to talking with you soon!

And last, but not least, if you are sending an actual printed letter, don’t forget to sign your letter, and also have someone else proofread your letter to make sure you don’t have any typos.

How to make French toast?

Making French toast is easy. Here is one suggested recipe:

  1. Crack two to three eggs in a bowl and mix well.
  2. Add a ½ teaspoon of cinnamon. (You can add more cinnamon later as you make the French toast as the cinnamon will adhere to the first few pieces the most.)
  3. Add 2 tablespoons of milk (any kind of milk or milk substitute, like almond milk, is fine).
  4. Add a pinch or two of salt.
  5. Add ½ teaspoon of real vanilla.
  6. Pour the mixture into a flat-ish bowl or flat dish with edges.
  7. Coat a nonstick pan or griddle with a small amount of vegetable oil or cooking spray and heat it to medium high.
  8. Once hot, turn the heat down to medium low.
  9. Dip each slice of bread quickly into the mixture, making sure to get both sides wet.
    Important: Do not leave the bread to soak in the egg mixture for any length of time as doing so will make it too wet and thus harder to cook. Just get both sides wet.
  10. Place the pieces of French toast evenly on the pan or griddle, leaving enough room to allow you to turn them over.
  11. Cook slowly, making sure that the French toast is brown on both sides before removing.
  12. Eat with butter, powdered sugar, and/or real maple syrup for best results.
  13. Enjoy!
