The youth of our world are now being trained to protect us. CyberPatriot is the cool title for a unique group of young Americans.  The Air Force Association actually (AFA) conceived of this concept.

No Housework Day

April 7th is No Housework Day.  Can this be a recurring monthly holiday?  Housework can be a drag, especially in these, bright, verdant days of spring when all you want to do is picnic and fly kites.  Having good shoes to do your housework in is a tough call too.  How many times have you broken a pair of flimsy flip flops while scrubbing like Cinderella?  We’ve got some great shoe suggestions for those times you need footwear for around the house—and suggestions for the special man in your life too. First things first, men do housework too.

Price is Right Model Gives Away Car

On a recent episode of the TV Game Show “The Price is Right,” exquisite and mesmeric model, Manuela Arbelaez, who assists the host Drew Carey, accidentally revealed the winning price in one of the games – while the contestant was still playing!  The contestant, “Andrea,” got to keep the vehicle (and, in fact, went on to become the show’s ultimate paladin).  The contestant, “Andrea,” had to discern which of 5 potential prices the true tariff on a brand new vehicle was.  Each salvo was inscribed on a card and the 5 cards assembled atop one another on a narrow placard about 6 feet in height.

Software Boxes from a Green Goddess

Do you know a Green Goddess?  No, not the creamy, decadent, bizarre colored salad dressing that is slathered all over lettuce and other such green vegetables.  But rather this term now refers to a gal who is environmentally conscious and goes to extremes in order to recycle just about everything. She is denoted as “green” because she cares about the long-term health of our planet. I have a relative who fits this description to a tea.  She may be a bit kooky, but her heart is in the right place.

Peeps: A Perfect Example of Peaking in Business

America is truly the land of opportunity for all who land on its shores.  And the story of Peeps, the squishy, scrumptious tasting and fluorescent looking indulgence, is a perfect example of how perseverance and determination can lead to a triumphant and unimagined life. Peeps have been an Easter tradition in millions of households for over 50 years. These brightly colored yellow, chick-shaped marshmallow confections are beloved by children of all ages (my mom being their biggest fan). Their arrival in Spring is a greatly anticipated event. Certainly, you’ve enjoyed a morsel of this iconic treat.

New Dr. Seuss

It’s true, It’s true,
Climb a tree and shout “Woo Hoo,”
Dr. Seuss has a new book,
And in July we will all get a look!
Okay, so I am not as a prolific a rhymer as the beloved Dr. Seuss. His parables are legendary and a cherished memory from everyone’s childhood. But this amazing news is still correct,
And this book will be a sell-out, we bet!
I’ll pause with the corny prose now and share this spectacular, earth-shattering news. Even though the much loved Theodor Seuss Geisel, aka Dr. Seuss, passed away over 20 years ago, his fans were flabbergasted when an unpublished manuscript of his work was recently unearthed.
