And then there was the DNC. The RNC was on 1 channel. The DNC was on all of them! That ticked me off. My regular programs I like were pre-empted. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr....... Not to mention all the BS rhetoric and lies being told at that affair. Imagine Arab/Americans not wanting to recognize Jerusalem as the capitol of Isreal. Ha! Just gotta gag at that stuff... and on top of that the DNC chairman is Antonio Villaraigosa the ADAM HENRY Mayor of Los Angeles!!!!!

Neither Rain Nor Snow Day
Right now, we bet you're thinking "this special day is about a tranquil weather day with neither rain nor snow" ....wrong.
Here's the real scoop on this special day:
Neither Rain Nor Snow Day celebrates the opening of the New York Post Office building on this day in 1914.
This following inscription was inscribed on the building: "Neither snow nor rain not heat nor gloom of night ,stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds."
Here is the second misconception: A lot of people assume the inscription represents the Post Office motto. This assumption is incorrect. But, this inscription is very close to the old Pony Express rider's motto. Which leads to a third misconception.. ......The Pony Express was not a government funded predecessor to today's Post Office. The Pony Express was a courier and message delivery service. However, it was privately owned and funded. Now that we have the history and trivia out of the way, let's go and enjoy the day. We hope you use Neither Rain Nor Snow Day to show your appreciation to your postal delivery people, especially those who walk their routes.
