Hey it’s Brent Carey. My day starts with a great workout, wild Muni bus ride to work, then it’s time to open the mic on KOIT 3-7pm. I love living in the city, hope to run into you soon at a Bay Area event!

21-year-old Aaron Seldomridge is autistic and usually needs to order from picture menus. One day he met Anisa Dujnic who was working at the local Starbucks. Now with her help, he is able to order on his own with no problem.

This is ridiculously cute. Cookie is from the Cincinnati Zoo and is the mascot of the Zoo Bird House. You have to watch all the way to the end. I had no idea penguins were ticklish!

These dogs are having the time of their lives at their very own pool party! This took place at Lakeview Park in Nampa, Idaho. It's a great idea and the dogs clearly love it.

Labor Day brings up images of hamburgers and the beginning of school which signals the coming end of summer. So if  you're hosting a family gathering, taking a trip the beach or sticking around the house,  Labor Day can also be a great time to be green.

Here are the top five tips to make your Labor Day a little more green this year:

#1 What would Labor Day weekend be without a BBQ? Here are some green BBQ tips:

#2. Prepare your home for winter – The extra time off is the perfect time to get your house ready for cooler weather. Potential projects include changing air filters, closing any vents in unused rooms, upgrading your home's insulation, installing radiant barrier, caulking windows and doors and installing a programmable thermostat.  

# 3.Use real plates – While they can be tempting, it's much easier on the earth to skip the paper and plastic plates, utensils and napkins by serving your food with reusable items. 

#4. Carpool – Labor Day weekend is one of the busiest weekends as far as traffic is concerned. Whether you're taking a trip with family or just heading over to a friend's house for a barbecue, see if you can carpool to reduce your carbon footprint. If you're hosting a party, try to arrange a carpooling scheme for your friends.

#5. Serve green food – An easy way to make your festivities more eco-friendly is by serving local, organic and seasonal food. In early September, foods in season include peppers, corn, berries, tomatoes, and onions. Shop at a farmers market to make sure your food is local and check to make sure the produce you are eyeing is organic.  

Thanks to White Fence and Just Energy for these great ideas.

There have been a lot of quake stories at work today. The South Napa Quake was my first quake, and it's been interesting hearing everyone share their experience. I'd love to hear your story on our Facebook conversation.

The kids are back in school and this has made a lot of parents VERY happy. This family was inspired to create a song and video paying homage to Sir Mix-A-Lot.

Baby Got Class was created by the Holderness familiy and has already gone viral. "I like big buses and I cannot lie..."

I'll be the first to admit I'm not a morning person. Apparently this dog isn't a big fan of mornings either. His response to the alarm clock is perfect!

We all like to be around our friends and those we care about most. These two are no different, only we're talking about a goat named "Mr. G" and a burro named "Jellybean."  Mr. G moved to a new home and refused to eat for 6 days until he was reunited with his friend Jellybean. 

They were featured on ABC's Nightline, and even have their own Facebook page.  This video tells their story.

Sometimes, those who have less give more.  A touching video and powerful message.

I have never seen a dog on a trampoline... until now. He's an English Bulldog named Mudder and you can tell he loves it when he gets to play on the trampoline. He even does barrel rolls!
