Is Your Job Causing You To Gain Weight?

Does your job description state that weight gain is part of your position? Did you choose an employment position that will expand your waistline? A CareerBuilder study exposed the horrifying results that 55% of workers consider themselves to be overweight, and 41% have gained weight at their present jobs. And it is not just the increase of a pound of two.

First Lady Style

We’ve been giving an awful amount of credence to presidential candidates, but what about the aspirant First Ladies?  Being the leader of the free world isn’t easy, but we bet hosting state dinners regularly isn’t either.  The First Lady of the U.S. always has big shoes to fill and we have a few favorites to share with you. Envision yourself helping to pardon the petrified Thanksgiving poultry in the Baily Button Bling Triplet by UGG.  These boots by UGG are great for light-hearted events in an otherwise somber city.  They’ll travel to Martha’s Vineyard well too.

Tony, Tony Come Around

“Tony, Tony come around, something’s lost that must be found.”  If you recognize that rhyme, we might be able to assume two things.  You were raised Catholic.  You have a tendency to misplace things.  If you’re used to supplicating Saint Anthony, you may have a new reason to say “Hallelujah!”  Wearable technologies have made it easy to find lost valuables, like your pesky keys and even your credulous child.  Keys always get lost at the most inconvenient time.  You search and search the vortex of your purse slapdashedly.

The Popemobile

The Popemobile…it’s may be one of the most recognizable cars on the plant.  Designed for security, optimized for ministry, the Popemobile is the chariot of Catholic Church.  Over the decades it’s gotten more sophisticated and more secure.  Let’s take a look at notable Popemobiles. POPE FRANCIS, USA 2015
Francis rode around NYC in a modified Jeep Wrangler.  The Jeep has been modified to have a shield over the top of the papal platform but has open sides, allowing the Pontiff to bless the faithful as needed.  Pope Francis is not fond of the vehicle, though, calling it a “glass sardine can”.

Exercise Your Musical Muscles

Whether you’re a country crooner, giddy for gospel or just want to do some musical musing, apps can be a powerful way to exercise your musical muscles. Both the Apple app store and Google Play have hundreds of apps that are great for lone musicians and aspirant Partridge families too.  Some offbeat some upbeat, let’s take a tour of musical apps that help you make some noise.  Lick of the Day could refer to some sordid dating site, but it’s actually an Apple app that will teach you to play the guitar.  Tickle the ivories with Piano Maestro by JoyTunes.

I Think I Can!

“I think I can, I think I can….I KNOW I can!” This legendary phrase has been imparted to generations through the 1930’s children’s book, The Little Engine That Could. And although this imaginary account of a train with an unrelenting personality is used to teach youngsters the value of optimism and hard work, it provides just as valuable a lesson for adults. This parable is one of the greatest tales of motivation and the power of positive thinking ever told. And as Monster.com reminds us, job searching is one of the most challenging undertakings you will ever engage in during your life. That may sound dramatic, but it is accurate.

Happy Birthday, Google!

Happy Birthday, Google! Yesterday, September 27th marked the birthday of Google, the ubiquitous search engine that powers many of our explorations of the internet.  The unofficial slogan of Google is “Don’t be evil,” but we’ve found some wickedly cool ways to extend your use of Google on your mobile devices. APPLE USERS
Virtually Google’s whole suite of apps is available to Apple aficionados.   One Google offering I feel doesn’t get enough attention is Google Keep, which is like having sticky notes but without the neon and pastel cubes of paper.

Road Rage Rusty

I used to make scarecrows every Halloween.  It was a thing.  My grandma loved doing it.  I loved doing it.  We didn’t have a field of corn to protect, but it was just sort of cool to have a humanoid-like figure sitting on our porch from mid-September through early November.  Okay, we were a creepy family, but I miss having a creepy scarecrow now that I live in a metropolis.  Our family scarecrow was not a fashion plate.  I want to reinvigorate the scarecrow, but with a theme, so my theme this year is Road Rage Rusty the Race Car Driver.

Fido-Friendly Car

It’s always hard to leave him behind.  He always gives you his undivided attention.  He never wants to leave your side.  And those adorable, deep, brown eyes.  He’s perfect.  Your dog is the perfect guy.  If you are very attached to your pet and can’t stand the idea of leaving them with a sitter or doggy daycare, it’s time to accessorize your car to be Fido-friendly.  However, you may hate the way Rover roams about the car.  If you dog squirms a lot in the car, it may be because he’s uncomfortable.  After all, the car seat is not his dog bed.
