Herrick here urges people to take advantage of youth and energy while they may! The poem is in the genre of carpe diem, to seize the day.

No more "quiet" Saturdays
No more "do my own things" on Saturdays
No more smooth drive to work on Thursdays
No more "sleep 10 more minutes" on Thursdays
No more running errands on Saturdays
Any "No Mores" you can think of?

OK, so how many times you needed to have your nails done but did not really feel like changing, driving, looking for a parking spot, and most importantly (at least to me) finding the the right slippers to wear that wont ruin your pedicure!
I am guessing the answer is "SO MANY TIMES"
So how about being a queen for an hour or two at the comfort of your house? Sounds good? You bet!!
I have received a gift voucher from the owner of Queenails to try out their luxurious home service.
Two ladies came in to my house with a black suitcase and some fuchsia pink ribbons tied on every zipper... I guided them to my room. They asked me where I would be sitting and I pointed at the sofa in my room before I left to get them something to drink, and when I returned my room was turned into a spa in less than two minutes!!
I sat down admiring the new atmosphere I was in...
Large bowl with fuchsia rose petals and hot stones
I sat down thinking... wow! that was fast and impressive! She offered me tea (I actually had to pick the flavor I wanted).. all this happened when I left the room for two short minutes.. and its all self-sufficient! They have brought everything they needed with them, including the water to fill the bowls and for the tea..
So I sat down on my sofa, admiring their work, and enjoying the wonderful atmosphere..
They started with cutting and filing.. then lavender scrub, followed by a lavender mask... and, this is the best part, a shoulder massage before I chose the colors for the nail polishes!
The ladies were quiet most of the time, just asking me to relax and/or if I was comfortable at most. The music was soothing, and so was the lavender smell.. This was one helluva treat I got! Just what I needed! A quiet afternoon treatment at the comfort of my home!
Would I try it again!? Definitely! I dont mind being "her Majesty, the Queen" for another couple of hours now would I!?!!
I recommend it girls!! Pick up your phone and call them on 508-0746

The interesting part is that the Calendar of 1990 is exactly the same as the 2007 one.
You can reuse your calendar as follows:
Assume X to be the year of your old calendar. Now if X was....
1. A leap year, you can reuse it in X+28
2. A year after a leap year, you can reuse it in X+6, X+17, and X+28
3. Two years after a leap year, you can reuse it in X+11, X+17, and X+28
4. Three years after a leap year, you can reuse it in X+11, X+22, and X+28
1988 was a leap year, making 1990 falls into the third category and the rule to apply here is X+11, X+17, and X+28
So now X = 1990
1990 + 11 = 2001 and 1990 + 17 = 2007
And all, August 2, of 1990, 2001, and 2007, fall on a Thursday!
I know I know its a bit nerdish of me :-P but if you by any chance happen to have 1990 or 2001 calendar REUSE them... if not, save this years calendar for the year 2018 and save the environment from the extra waste:-P
