If you are off, do you use Labor Day for rest, (chillin', relaxing, BBQ, doing absolutely nothing) or do you use Labor Day for labor, (fixing the car, cleaning the house, fixing around the house, gardening, lawn care, doing overtime at work).

      Trying to fix my computer. Somehow my files became damaged or corrupt. Frown (everytime I hear that term I think of manila folders cursing at me)

      Good poll, but I couldn't really pick one answer.  When I was in school it meant the beginning of a new school year. In my 21 year career in New England, Labor Day meant a long weekend and the end of summer. It was always very crowded at the beaches. When I was a skier, it meant only 2-3 more months until that white powder came falling from the sky. It also meant it was time to begin winterizing your home and your car. In FL labor day is still the summer season, although many tourists spend the weekend here. It's been raining a lot for the past few days and the mosquitos are hungry, so I've stayed inside most of the weekend. I can hear them chasing me when I walk outside.

        took the dog for a walk..came home for cheese burgers and fries. a hot day here in the peg.  all the hoodlums(school kids) are going back next week. no use trying to go to the corner restaurants for lunch..too long a line up. be careful when you walk by the bus stops after work, i notice many of the punks(school kids) don't wanna move out of your way. the glass in the bus shelters will be repaired more frequently now(school kids,  you know).  tomorrow, the spin doctor a.k.a  "the man who wrote the book on b.s."  will be back on days( the boss). never seen a more useless piece of skin.  1 of those who have their head buried so far up the owners butt, well you know the rest.  sure wish i could move to alberta...booming..tons of jobs...but no where to live.  if it wasn't for the boss or some useless people i work with..i'd have no stress what so ever. yeah, this is my negative rant for the day, week, month...once that sum 10 comes in for  Quebec...it will be nothing but wine and roses.

          Labor Day is the annual sabbath for workers.  I'm not much of a worker but by gawd I celebrated the sabbath properly by doing nothing except elbow bends, wrist curls and head tilts.

            I got up early for breakfast at 7:30 a.m. then I took a 2 hour nap.  Watched Tiger win his fifth in a row then we had Patacones which is fried plantains and Hebrew Nationals.  Why you say because Hebrew Nationals are the only hot dog that I like that will fit the bun and have a little hang outside of it.  Then I did my best to support China by consuming a large TsingTao lager Beer.  I decided to only have one because I didn't want to get drunk.  All in all a lazy day.  Thank you America because I could do absolutely nothing and no body is giving me a hard time about it.-weshar75

                    To me Labor Day means the end of summer is near, thank goodness.

                    Good riddance to flys and mosquitoes and "air that you wear" and mildew and your clothes sticking to you and snakes in the road.That's right, snakes in the road.

                    After sweltering all summer and people moving along liiikkkkkkeeeeeee slllllottttthhhhhhhssssss because of the heat, the brisk weather is coming that makes you feel alive again!

                    Insert music: Ride of the Valkyries 

                    Summer is the hoe of Babylon and the month of August is the hoe of hoes. Labor Day means August, the nothing month, the hoe of hoes, is over.

                    Smile
