HAPPY LABOR DAY 2012


Dedicated in honor of the worker, it is also appropriately called the “workingman’s holiday”. The holiday is dedicated to you in respect and appreciation for the work you do in or outside of the home, union or non-union, big company, small companies, or government. As long as you work somewhere at something, this holiday is for you! Here’s a special salute to all the hard working women in America, THANK YOU!

SEVEN QUICK FACTS ABOUT LABOR DAY

1. What is Labor Day?

Labor Day is a United States federal holiday observed on the first Monday in September that celebrates the contributions of America’s workforce.

2.  No one knows who started it.

There is still some doubt as to who is actually the first person to propose the holiday for workers.

3.  America’s 1st Labor Day.

The first Labor Day celebration in the United States can be traced to New York City’s Union Square on Sept. 5, 1882. It was designed as a way to appease city workers after numerous strikes and in some cases even violence.

4.  Oregon was the first state to make it a holiday in 1887.

By the time it became a federal holiday in 1894, thirty states officially celebrated Labor Day.

5.  A rejection of Communism.

President Eisenhower designated May 1 as both Law Day and Loyalty Day. Each of these were specifically aimed at replacing the communist holiday with a religious or patriotic one.  In many countries, May Day is also Labor Day.

6.  No white clothes the day after the holiday.

In the early 20th century, white was the uniform of choice for Americans well-to-do enough to decamp from their city digs to warmer climates for months at a time: light summer clothing provided a pleasing contrast to drabber urban life.  If you look at any photograph of any city in America in the 1930s, you’ll see people in dark clothes.  By contrast, the white linen suits and Panama hats at snooty resorts were a look of leisure.

7.  End of summer.

Traditionally, Labor Day is celebrated by most Americans as the symbolic end of the summer.

Man’s Penis Stolen While Asleep!


Thieves stole a man’s penis while he slept, according to police.

Fei Lin, 41, of the Niqiao village near Wenling City, in east China’s Zhejiang province, told police he was asleep when the thieves burst into his room and put a bag over his head, according to CEN/EUROPICS and as reported in the Daily Star.

“They put something over my head and pulled down my trousers and then they ran off,” Lin said. “I was so shocked I didn’t feel a thing – then I saw I was bleeding and my penis was gone.”

It’s 7/11… FREE SLURPEES!


HAPPY BIRTHDAY, 7-ELEVEN! 

The convenience store chain celebrates its 85th birthday on July 11 with free 7.11-oz. Slurpees at participating locations from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Here’s 7-Eleven’s store locator. Call the location nearest you to find out if it’s running the deal.

The event also marks the 45th birthday of 7-Eleven’s iconic frozen drink, the Slurpee. The chain plans to dole out seven million free ones this year, which would exceed last year’s figure of two million to become the most Slurpees given away in the company’s history.

7-Eleven’s story can be traced back to 1927, when Southland Ice Company employee Joe C. Thompson started selling milk, eggs and bread out of an ice house. Thompson became so successful that he bought the entire company, keeping his stores open from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. By 1952, he’d opened 100 stores under the 7-Eleven brand. As of 1991, the company has been run by Japanese group Seven & I Holdings Co. with more than 46,000 stores in 16 countries.

In a release, 7-Eleven explains how a mishap at a drive-in hamburger eatery sparked the genesis of what became known as the Slurpee:

When the soda fountain broke at his drive-in hamburger restaurant, proprietor Omar Knedlik began serving his customers icy-cold bottled soft drinks that he kept chilled in a deep freeze. Customers clamored for the slushy semi-frozen bottled drinks, and Knedlik hit upon the idea of creating soft-serve frozen drinks.

Knedlik later approached the John E. Mitchell Company with the idea, which resulted in the creation of a machine that used compact freon refrigeration to freeze a carbonated drink and serve it in a sherbet-like form. Dubbed the “Icee machine,” in 1965 it was noticed by a visiting 7-Eleven manager who bought three of them. By 1967, they were in almost every 7-Eleven store.

Happy Memorial Day 2012


To all who are serving, have served and who have lost their lives in the fight for freedom, THANK YOU.
