Frankly, I appreciate the Remember the 4th or July message coming early. I can use it for an SM minute tonight, while it is still appropriate. many of the time sensitive SM Minute messages come through the list too late for me to use in a timely fashion.

So far I've received a "I want to wish everyone a Happy 4th of July
a "Remember the 4th of July" msg from the list - have I missed something?
My calendar says it's still June; moreover, my calender also says the 4th
falls on a Tuesday - as such, there is no "4th weekend", no 3 -day Fed/State
or local government holiday, just a simple 1 day observance.
I know it has become fashionable to "sell" TV shows, movies and holidays
weeks, even months before they occur (I site the A&E Network's 6 week
campaign for their new TV Movie "Longitude"), but can't there be one place
that waits at least until we reach the same month to start selling something?
Just my opinion -
