Let’s start with a Happy Labor Day to all of you in the United States. I only hope that you aren’t having to “Labor” today…and are enjoying the 3-Day Weekend, without Grinding for TSTO “bling” much! Most of you should be waaaaay ahead of the calendar by now. So, tip back…enjoy your favorite beverage, and read a couple of stories from the REAL Springfield (well…one of them started here).
There is countless debate over where the Real Springfield is. But during a visit to Springfield, Oregon, to help celebrate the unveiling of a huge Simpson’s mural, the “Real Lisa Simpson” (at least the voice of the real Lisa Simpson) let it slip that indeed, Springfield, Oregon was the true Springfield. We never had a doubt…
Well, here in the US today marks the unofficial end of Summer….Labor Day. I think it’s funny how here in America we don’t bother using calendars to mark the start and end of our summers…we just know Memorial Day is the unofficial start and Labor Day is the unofficial end. Sometimes I think we just like the excuse for a good Barbecue! 😉
Of course, Labor Day isn’t really about the end of summer…and it isn’t only celebrated in the US (our friends up in Canada are celebrating it today as well…). Labor Day (or Labour Day) is a celebration of the worker’s movement. It’s meant to honor those who contribute to the strength and prosperity of their country. (you can read more about it here)
Anywho… most Americans will spend today soaking up what’s left of their summer and we’re no exception here.
Don’t worry… we’ll still be popping in and out of the comments throughout the day to help you with all of your Homerpalooza Event questions. Just keep in mind it might take us a little while to moderate through all the comments, so we thank you in advance for your patience!
We hope you all have a GREAT day! Do you have any plans for today? Did you enjoy your summer? Sound off in the comments below, you know we love hearing from you!
