Labor Day 2013

September 2, 2013


In the United States, Labor Day, the first Monday in September, is a creation of the labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers. It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of their country.

In many countries, the working classes sought to make May Day an official holiday, and their efforts largely succeeded. In the United States and Canada, however, the official holiday for workers is Labor Day in September. This day was promoted by the Central Labor Union and the Knights of Labor, who organized the first parade in New York City. After the Haymarket Massacre, US President Grover Cleveland feared that commemorating Labor Day on May 1 could become an opportunity to commemorate the affair. Thus, in 1887, it was established as an official holiday in September to support the Labor Day that the Knights favored.[1]

Replacing the Dead Toaster

March 7, 2013

Shay Fei Fei and Nomo’s challenge today was to replace the dead toaster.

The old toaster oven stopped working.  This was realized last night while making dinner.  We were supposed to have Parmesan Chicken.  After the alarm went off, the chicken was still raw.

Shay Fei Fei wanted the replacement NOW so online was not an option.  Tough luck Amazon.

Winning Deal:


Hamilton Beach 6 Slice Toaster from BED BATH and BEYOND!
MSRP $49.99 – 20% OFF COUPON plus ABL used her credit card to get REWARDS

Target didn’t have anything within budget that was available and Best Buy was too far.

Don’t forget your credit card rewards and coupons.  Coupons do come in handy when you need something.
