July 4th Holiday Fun


The Catchword folks are getting ready for our July 4th long holiday. (I’ll personally be camping on the Feather River for 3 sunny days.) Nothing says “mid-year” like July 4th. Or is it Independence Day? How peculiar that the holiday is often referred to by its date instead of its given name. Upon doing a little bit of research, I found that the French also refer to Bastille Day as Le 14 Juillet in France. I wonder why both countries refer to their revolutionary holiday by the date.

Speaking of mid-year, can I take a moment to recognize just how crazy it is that we are now in the second half of 2008?! How time flies when you’re naming!

One of Catchword’s big projects this year was a dramatic upgrade of our office environment. Most notably we remodeled our entry-way area, turning it into a swanky lounge. Additionally, we put some fun new signage up in our elevator lobby. Come visit us sometime and see our non-naming creativity first-hand!
