September 3rd


I hope that you are enjoying your weekend and that ever one is safe. If you are traveling make sure you check the road conditions for weather and forest fires.

Tomorrow will bring everyone back to a week of work and school. Now the routines are starting for fall. School schedules, sports, homework and everything in between. I wish all school age youth a happy school year. Let us make this year the best year possible without bullying. Let us love thy neighbor as thy brother or sister. Let us practice doing on to others as we would have them do to us. Let’s do something kind every week and pay it forward when someone does something kind to us.

For all you students returning to school remember a smile goes a long way. You can make a teacher’s day by the way you enter the class. Let’s have contagious smiles and positive attitudes.

Parents out their I know many of you are celebrating the joy of your children back in school, and the normal routine it brings. However, remember for everyone person’s joy comes another’s sorrow. Teachers are at the opposite end of the spectrum because now they have less time with their own families so try to be understanding of them and realize that they now are their supporting your family and they need someone there to support them.

There is never a problem too big that it cannot be resolved. If we teach our children to respect education, teachers, and administration be they right or wrong life will be come easier. Life isn’t always fair and it’s an important lesson in learning how to work for a boss later on in life.

I wish everyone a wonderful fall and hope that fall comes slowly allowing us to enjoy the months following before old man winter rolls in.

My family and I are being lazy this Labor Day and doing nothing because that is what Labor Day is all about, not having to work. We are appreciating each other and loving the time we have to do whatever we want to do.

I am working on two books at the moment. “Coming of Age in the Rockies ” The Rebel Years is almost complete. I just have to finish the picture downloads and then proof read it carefully for errors.

It will be out the end of September.

I am working on finishing a parent and teacher guide for young children. It includes the days of the month that I have had on my blog site along with finger plays, poems and short stories. It will be out this fall sometime. I’m not sure if it will be finished in September or not but it will be close to that.

I will be getting ready for my Library Presentation at the Burley Library on September 13th at 7:00 pm as that will come quickly. I will be talking about why I write and about my books. I hope all in the area will join me.

Well let’s get busy and see what today has in store for us.

National Days:

3 Labor Day First Monday of month

The celebration of Labor Day was outlined in the first proposal of the holiday: A street parade to exhibit to the public “the strength and esprit de corps of the trade and labor organizations”,[1] followed by a festival for the workers and their families. This became the pattern for Labor Day celebrations. Speeches by prominent men and women were introduced later, as more emphasis was placed upon the civil significance of the holiday. Still later, by a resolution of the American Federation of Labor convention of 1909, the Sunday preceding Labor Day was adopted as Labor Sunday and dedicated to the spiritual and educational aspects of the labor movement.[1]

The holiday is often regarded as a day of rest and parties

Growing up Labor day was a very important day in my hometown. It was a day that the miner’s and all other labors were remembered. It was a day that the unions emphasized as a day without labor. It was appreciated and respected by all. It has remained a day that I will always honor out of respect for those who have labored so hard to make our country what it is. This is the day when we honor the ditch diggers, the construction workers, the electricians, the plumbers, the miners, the factory workers and all other general labor workers. Thank you for your hard work we couldn’t live our life style without you.

National Welsh Rarebit Day

It’s National Welsh Rarebit Day! Welsh rarebit is toast with hot cheese poured over it. It is often served as a pub snack.

The origins of this dishes’ name are unclear. The Welsh term “rarebit” most probably means “rabbit.” Why would cheesy toast be called rabbit? The title is likely just a playful way to poke fun at the dish and those who eat it—much in the same way that “mock turtle soup” is not actually made from turtle.

Today, Welsh rarebit is a popular dish across Europe and in certain parts of the rest of the world. If you’ve never had Welsh rarebit before, National Welsh Rarebit Day is a great opportunity to try it for the first time!


Welsh Rarebit

225g strong-flavoured cheddar, Caws Llyn
25g butter, melted
1 tbsp Worcester sauce
1tbsp English mustard
1 tbsp flour
4 tbsp Brains beer
4 slices wholemeal toast
Cayenne pepper

Grate the cheese and mix the remaining ingredients to a firm paste. Spread over the 4 slices of toast and grill gently until the topping is cooked through and well-browned.


Well that’s it for today so I’m off to have some fun. I hope you enjoy the sun today. It’s a beautiful day so enjoy it will you can and stay safe so until next time 🙂
