September 28th, 2015

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.

September 23rd, 2015

September is All American Breakfast Month, and it seems one New Jersey teacher has been taking his morning alimentation a bit too seriously.  New Jersey educator Arnold Anderson was late to work 111 times in two years, citing his breakfast as the cause of his tardiness.  Anderson was suspended without pay until January 1st.  Breakfast is the most important meal of the day.  It’s been studied many times.  As bemusing as this teacher’s issue seems, there tips, tricks and hacks for making the preparation of breakfast less onerous.  1. Pre-prep:  Sometimes re-heating is yucky and sometimes it’s scrumptious.

Something good may have come out of Soviet-era Russia:  kettlebells.  You may have seen them at the gym, canon-ball shaped weights that have a handle.  They’ve been amassing in gyms lately as the fitness craze du jour and I decided to investigate on my own.  Kettlebells, oddly enough, were invented to measure crops in the 1700s.  Farmers using them seemed to burgeon in strength.  They got cocky and devoted whole festivals to showing off their prowess with wielding these kettlebells, aka giryas.

Avoid Becoming Obsolete

Anne Middleton
September 21st, 2015

There are dozens if not hundreds of lists from endless “reliable” sources that claim to be cognizant of the most up and coming employment categories. But what about those jobs that are becoming obsolete?  What if you decide on a career path that becomes a dead end? You must be compelled to do some investigative research to assure a rewarding future. For example, one of the most commonly quoted statistics about wedding bliss is that half of all marriages end in divorce.  However, according to CDC reports, which are derived from census numbers, it appears as if divorce rates are decreasing.
