Labor Day - a day set aside to honor the contributions of the American worker - is today, Sept. 4, 2017. Here are some of the best quotes, sayings, remembrances to celebrate the workers' holiday and the unofficial end of summer:

"While we are fighting for freedom, we must see, among other things, that labor is free." - - Woodrow Wilson

"As we celebrate Labor Day, we honor the men and women who fought tirelessly for workers' rights, which are so critical to our strong and successful labor force." -- Elizabeth Esty

We all work hard, so let's enjoy Labor Day.

Kindle Pick of the Week: The 3D Body Revolution by Donald Driver

Donal Driver is fit.

The record-setting wide receiver for the Green Bay Packers, Donald Driver, may have retired in 2012, but he's still in playing shape. Since then, has won Dancing with the Stars (2012) and written a bestselling memoir, Driven. At on time, he took a break from his intense workouts after retiring–and found himself sluggish and unhappy.

He took it upon himself to get back into the best shape of his life–and along the way has become THE go-to guy for training other pro athletes as well as regular people just looking for a great workout at his Dallas gym Driven Elite Fitness and Health Center. With his trademark motivational energy and charisma, he now he shares his 3D’s: the determination to eat for weight loss; the discipline to achieve high-intensity, muscle-building workouts; and the drive to push yourself to your best. Whatever your starting level, this workout blueprint will guide you to peak performance, with targeted nutritional and motivational advice for each of its 3 levels. Filled with insights and insider stories from his life on and off the field, Driver also offers a clean eating plan with 25 recipes targeted to caloric needs as well as 50 photos of him demonstrating the exercises. This is your path to peak performance and phenomenal fitness.

This book is thorough and packed with nuggest. It's more than a motivation book, just as Driver is more than just a football player. I received an early review copy, and this is a book to pre-order.

It's out Sept 19.

 "I want you to get in the best shape of your life and I’m here to help," says Driver.

The book is loaded with pictures and anecodotes from Driver about his playing days and life after football.

It's a great read and resource to keep with you on your mobile device.

No. 4 gives his seal of approval:

“My friend Donald’s life is one of commitment: Commitment to family, faith, health, and well-being. And this book is evidence of that commitment, offering a path anyone can follow to better health and fitness.” – Brett Favre, Packers quarterback, 1992-2007

Curtis Henley Takes 34th Myrtle Beach World Amateur Handicap Championship

Curtis Henley of Poquoson, Va., shot a gross 82, good for a net 66, to win the World Championship Playoff at the 34th annual Myrtle Beach World Amateur Handicap Championship Friday at Barefoot Resort's Dye Club.

Henley edged James Dupont of Meadville, Pa., and Charlotte’s Jim Acord, who shot net 67s to finish tied for second place.

Hilton Head’s Wes Long fired a sizzling 68 to win the Gross Division and finished five rounds with a cumulative, gross score of 1-under par.

Making his first appearance in the event, Carl Myers of Dallas, Texas won the Senior Gross Division in a sudden death playoff against Kim Mansfield of High Point, N.C. Myers won on the first playoff hole with a par.

Virginians Ted Hartung and Thomas “Duke” Wagner won the Pairs Competition and along with it a trip to any destination in the world that GolfBreaks.com offers.

A 72-hole, net stroke play tournament, the World Am was contested on more than 50 of Myrtle Beach’s best golf courses.

Players from 49 states and 20 countries competed in the event, which was open to all men and women 18 years of age and older, and players were flighted based on age, gender and handicap. Each flight played a different course every day and after four rounds of competition, all flight winners and ties advanced to the World Championship Playoff at the Dye Club. The playoff was an 18-shootout to crown the event’s winner.

While the competition is initially what lures players to the tournament, it’s only part of what keeps them coming back. At the heart of the World Am’s appeal is the camaraderie among its participants and much of that kinship is fostered at the World’s Largest 19th Hole.

Each night of the event, the 19th Hole overtook all 120,000-square feet of the Myrtle Beach Convention Center, providing participants with free food and drinks, live entertainment, celebrity guest appearances, a golf expo and more.

Among the big names that appeared at the 19th Hole this year were Golf Channel personalities Charlie Rymer, Damon Hack and Chantel McCabe, billiards legend Ewa Laurance and Paige Spiranac, one of the game’s fastest rising personalities. Players also received a gift bag that included a logo’d hat, shirt, PGA Tour Superstore gift card, NexBelt, and an assortment of other goodies.
