One thing I know for sure about the Daylight Saving Time change (also known as Daylight Savings Time) is that I’m “off” for a few days after I lose that hour’s sleep.
According to some, George Vernon Hudson is credited with the time change we are currently familiar with, having introduced [...]
For possibly the first time, I have been glued to my TV, watching the 2014 Winter Olympics. I never really “got” the hype about the Olympics but this year I have been awestruck by the figure skating portion. Now I totally “get” it…the excitement and all the hullabaloo about the Winter Olympics. But when [...]
When my kids were little, bread never went stale. It seemed like I constantly was making cinnamon toast or peanut butter and jelly sandwiches or French toast. But now with just two adults in the house, we find that, in general, a loaf of bread goes stale before we finish it. [...]
I have to say, as far as Valentine’s Day goes, I can’t think of a more perfect gift for one of my readers than this…
Isn’t that adorable? What a great piece of jewelry for Valentine’s Day! It’s the Love Birds Necklace, designed by Ghost Love — [...]
It’s hard to imagine a world without the convenience of technology and electronics and social media. Granted, the “history of social media” is a relatively short one, in the grand scheme of things. But it’s terribly important…and it’s growing and progressing by leaps and bounds, seemingly every day.
I can personally attest to an [...]
You probably have an opinion on the most dangerous jobs in America. I know I do…and I’m going to hazard a guess that most of them aren’t listed on this infographic of the 10 Most Dangerous U.S. Jobs.
I was a tad surprised at what was listed — and what wasn’t:
January 3 is “National Sleep Day.” Every day, though, should be a sleep day. Sleep is important…for a variety of reasons. Seriously. I often have trouble sleeping — and I’ve even had nights when I don’t sleep at all (although they uncommon, thankfully) — and it’s unpleasant, to say the least.
When I [...]
It’s that time again…and you can expect an avalanche of “Top 10″ (or perhaps “Top 13″ to be clever and tie it into 2013) lists of this year’s most talked about/most interesting/most outrageous//most important/whatever people, news stories, and events of 2013.
While not perfect (what is, after all?), I thought this graphic did a [...]
Are you prepared for all that Cyber Monday has in store? You better be! Because there are all kinds of Cyber Monday deals and sales and promotions to take advantage of…just make sure you’re taking advantage of the right ones!
It’ll be here (and gone) before you know it — so it’s a good [...]
I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting (#MC) for MedImmune Specialty Care. I received a promotional item as a thank you for participating.
Believe it or not, we have already had a bout of the cold this season. Blech. Sure, no one has had the flu yet (thank goodness!), in spite of [...]
