Labor Day Is a federal holiday falling on the first Monday in September, and celebrating the achievements of American workers. 

However, some in the #USA will be working today. They are healthcare workers, public safety officers, journalists, and those working in the field harvesting the food we eat or restocking the aisles at Walmart, Target, Publix, Kroger, and Albertsons which are open along with CVS, Rite Aid, and Walgreens. On-demand services such as Postmates, Grubhub, UberEats, and DoorDash will deliver orders on Monday for participating local and national restaurants.

These early Marilyn Monroe images remind me of my cub reporter days. I covered a Miss Nude World Pagent at a Florida nudist camp.

In the news environment, I was seldom exposed to nude photography, films, or videos. Although one of my first assignments happened to be of young ladies baring all.

Marilyn Monroe didn’t agree to this shoot easily, she knew that during a lifestyle and morality of the era, posing for any naked images could ruin her career. She eventually signed the release for the pictures: “Mona Monroe.”

The Big Apple and the surrounding boroughs offer one of the most fantastic health care systems available and access to amenities that can make it an ideal spot to live and also to retire. 

New York City is a wonderful place for young people to study, also to work and play as well as for elderly retirees. New York, New York - A city so nice, they had to name it twice. Excellent public transportation, great cultural landmarks, a plethora of attractions, and lots of services that attract people from all over er the world.

My family emigrated to the USA when I was a little boy. The youngest son of professional parents who lost everything and fled for safety in America, the land of the free and the home of the brave.

President Joe Biden, Vice President Kamala Harris, and The Democrats face a growing battle for the soul of our American nation. They’re working to restore faith in The USA, just like President Roosevelt did during the Depression.

MacKenzie Scott has managed to share her massive wealth to such a wonderful degree that she overshadowed and made the macho tech titans look like tightwads. So if she has it and wants to flaunt it, that’s her prerogative.

She says that not only are nonprofits chronically underfunded, but they are also chronically diverted from their work by fund-raising and by burdensome reporting requirements that donors often place on them.

The accomplishment of goals and our achievements are obtained when we disown our frustrations.

Can-do people aggressively pursue solutions and uncover creative methods others never even try to find. Rather than wallowing in helplessness, overcome the obstacles and move on.

Take the bull by the horns.

Can-do people are fearless. We go straight to the source of their solution.

Learning About Commuting

I don't know about you, but for me, my daily commute was a #PIA. It took me 3 hours each way door to door, so needless to say I do not miss it especially when it is beginning to get cold outdoors.

In my particular case, I was taking a train from Pelham, NY to 125 Street in Harlem NYC, and transferring on the Hudson line to Poughkeepsie. Once my train arrived at the station, then I waited for a bus that would take me to Marist College, my final destination. The monthly commuter pass was $500.00

The Graveyard Shift

The Nightshift is made possible by the many businesses that require non stop 24-hour staffing and close attention to constant detail.

Some are attracted to it for various reasons. I worked that shift and called it the graveyard shift. If you're in a union, the pay is higher and it is called an overnight differential.  But I jumped when I was offered another job because I never grow fond of it.
