Happy April Fools Day - 2014.

"I got nothing" so far today to report insofar as a local April Fools' Day effort. Rumors abound of an opportunity allegedly soon to be posted, but that report has not been confirmed and may just be in and of itself a April Fools' Day gag being played out on yours truly. Regardless, I must carrying on with what I have and I am commenting on what is often a good nature working holiday.  Time dot com reports on "The Best April Fools’ Pranks Ever" by Dan Fletcher and Olivia B. Waxman, posted online March 31, 2014.
