OK, acording to “reliable” web sources and my web sleuthing officemate, today is National Escargot Day. Isn’t that exciting? I haven’t been able to find the official source on this, but there are references a-plenty, which makes me think about other bits of trivia and information that make their way onto the web. While it’s likely this day of distinction was “cooked” up by purveyors of fine snails or the “butter people,” how do we know? How can we tell when something on the web–be it information or some great bargain–is the real deal? We often can’t. The lesson: on the net, be careful and cautious, always. As for me, I’m off to find a slug to hug. And some garlic.
