I have seen a few questions about how to get the first, last days of the month, year, etc.

Can someone write a short consolidated article that shows pre- and post-2012 solutions in a series of quick queries that might handle common asks? Let's include:
- first day of the month
- last day of the month
- first day of next month
- last day of next month
- variations for quarters/years
- last particular day, say Friday.
- last business day (non Sat/Sun).

I know is isn't an article but Lynn's blog post covers all of those except the last two. http://www.sqlservercentral.com/blogs/lynnpettis/2009/03/25/some-common-date-routines/

I just posted an example of how to get the last particular day. http://www.sqlservercentral.com/Forums/FindPost1567034.aspx

Maybe Lynn would be a good choice to just turn his blog into a spackle article with a few new additions?

A dates table can provide all of those answers, and more.
