Happy Labor Day!

Apparently we're the only nation in the world that celebrates Labor Day in September. Everyone else does so on May 1st. Why the change? International Workers' Day commemorates an incident which happened in the U.S. It's all quite strange, yet I didn't know about it until I was an adult.

I work an eight hour day, so it's well to mention where the eight hour work day came from.

Lessee...I repurchased Dr. Hauschka Cleansing Milk:

And I'm doing my hair today:

This video was primarily a test of converting analog data to digital. I didn't have a mini DV cassette handy, so I made one with my kids. It's unscripted, unrehearsed, unplanned, and my segment of the video simply included the fact that I'd just done my hair. I still use the same hair stuff in the video.

That's about all I'm doing today, except some random ironing.
