Food For Thought: The Mother’s Day Calculator

A Mother’s Value…

1)Fill in your age.
2)Multiply by 52 weeks/year
3)Multiply by 7 days/week
4)Multiply by 24 hours/day
5)Multiply by $0.50/hour

Every mother has to be worth AT LEAST $0.50/hour.

Now we know not everyone can afford to pay their Mom $0.50/hour, but we have deals to suit every budget this Mother’s Day!

World Backup Day…What Does It Mean For Your Jewellery?

World backup day

Happy FriYAY!  Okay, so apparently today is “World Backup Day”!

…And what exactly does this mean?

“WHAT IS BACKUP?

A backup is a second copy of all your important files — for example, your family photos, home videos, documents and emails.” – (NationalDayCalendar.com)

…So what does World Backup Day have to do with jewellery?
