You can't copyright an idea.
The exact layout, possibly even the phrase "Tip of the Day,"
but not the idea.

There could be a patent on it, I suppose.

Good question. I don't KNOW that this is copyrighted, but can't imagine
the concept could be. After all, I've seen many calendars and booklets
that made use of a similar idea over a period of many years. I've even
made use of this idea in the classroom.
