Long ago, this holiday was one day set aside to honor the hardworking men and women of the U.S. Then a few decades ago, Congress legalized the holiday and declared it be celebrated on the first Monday in September.
Ever since, the Monday holiday has become a good reason for everyone to take off on Friday if possible and make the holiday a 4-day event.
If anyone is actually out there reading this post today, thank you! If not, I understand. After all the aroma of grilled steak or barbequed chicken plus the tangy taste of potato salad, grilled corn on the cob, and buckets of ice cream are tough to resist.
Updates on the Blog
Quickly I'll tell you that there are 4 new images of 3D Covers on the right sidebar.
This time I shifted things around a bit and put the newly-submitted covers at the top.
By the way, aren't all those covers lined up on the sidebar simply gorgeous? They represent wonderful books by our authors.
You'll see some new writing/reading quotations scattered around the main page too.
In the Movie Theater, you'll find 7 new videos for your entertainment. I hope you'll enjoy those. The lead-off video is for our September Giveaway: Back to School? Back to YOU! Let me know if you like it.
Speaking of our September Giveaway, it goes live at midnight on September 4th. Visit the Monthly Giveaway page for details, and read out policies about giveaways on Policies.
