It’s Labor Day and White is Still All Right!

Labor Day weekend is upon us, and despite the fact that we were just experiencing a heat wave,  come Monday, summer is unofficially at an end. In truth, summer is not really over until the calendar says it is, on or about September 21.  But then, the calendar completely ignores the real indications of the
