Happy Labor Day with some Labor Day History
Happy Labor Day! Labor Day, observed the first Monday in September, is an annual celebration of the social and economic achievements of American workers. The holiday is rooted in the late nineteenth century when labor activists pushed for a federal holiday to recognize the many contributions workers have made to America’s strength, prosperity, and well-being.

Independence Day Fireworks courtesy of Patrick Henry
Independence Day fireworks are a staple of our 4th of July celebrations. The real *fireworks* started with the founders of our country, the ‘radicals’ of the 1770s American Revolution.

Haut Specialty Co., between the virus pandemic, the election, the fires out west, the droughts and flooding elsewhere, the […]
Merry Christmas 2020
Merry Christmas 2020 Dear Friends, It’s December, and the end of the year cannot come soon enough. 2020 definitely has been a year that we won’t forget. The pandemic, the election, the stock market, social unrest, all in one year. Masks… I am tired of wearing a mask. My blood pressure is getting higher just […]

Happy Veterans Day!
For those who’ve served, “Happy Veterans Day!” Some vets bristle a bit when people thank them for their service on Memorial Day, because that’s not what the day is for. However, that’s exactly what Veterans Day is for. From the US Department of Defense: “Veterans Day is NOT the Same as Memorial Day. A lot of Americans […]
