Be Safe & Tip Well Over Labor Day—A Brief Blogging Break

I’m going to take a brief Labor Day weekend blogging break.

I hope everybody has a safe Labor Day weekend.

As the parents of a co-worker of mine wrote last year after the death of their daughter in a car accident—Please slow down and be careful on all the highways of life.  

As for blogging—Senator Obama, Senator McCain, Senator Biden and Governor Palin will all still be around two days from now. 

And please remember, tip workers who help you on Labor Day at the same time-and-a-half rate you would expect to be paid for working a holiday. If you normally leave 20 %, then tip 30%.

It may seem like a lot, but Labor Day is about respecting working people.

Have a great holiday.
