April 10th, 2015

Janie always recognized that she would be a wedding planner.  She absolutely thrives on organizing people, events, kitchen cabinets, toys, office supplies, recipes, laundry, shoes and just about anything that will sit still long enough for her to categorize. And Janie loves lists. Most of all, she loves crossing out completed items from her lists.  She treasures her lists as if they were her children (which also appeared on one of her “to do” lists several years ago).  When you ask her why she loves lists, she has a list of her top 10 reasons: 1.

The Northeastern part of the country has been lambasted this year with unprecedented snowfalls and brobdingnagian storms.  Meteorologists are purloining more TV time than Kanye West at a Grammy podium.  “Will it EVER end?” Scream the folks out east.  Meanwhile record breaking heat and drought are swallowing California.  Normal circadian rhythms?  Perhaps.  Global warming?  Maybe.  But whatever the cause, people are talking about it.  And, while the weather may normally be the thing of superfluous small talk at social gatherings, this confabulation is tinged with desperation.

Today’s mobile communication would have been viewed as just a fantasy five years ago.  Inventions continually alter the way we contact each other and it is certain that the future will deliver revolutionary inventions.  Advances in wireless technology are fueling a wave of innovation that connects people, places and things in meaningful new ways. To expedite these untapped discoveries, Verizon has implemented “innovation centers” to change the way we live, work and play.

Fear grips the nation as we observe the evil invading our world of technology.  We may not be able to stare these cyber criminals in the eye, but we are cognizant that their lawless and downright scandalous behavior puts all of us in danger. Where can we turn when these internet villains engage in sneaky behavior to penetrate our personal information and steal our identity? Cyber Patriot to the rescue! 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.

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.

April 6th, 2015

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.

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.
