weight-loss

 

Last night, we went to a church meeting.  We pulled into the parking lot and it was packed.  Yikes!  Our meeting wasn’t that exciting, so what was happening?  Well.  It turned out that it was the first meeting of Weight Watchers for 2017.  Everyone is ready to get rid of the excess poundage that the holidays brought.

This morning I saw that Good Morning America had a segment on weight loss diets that experts like.  Here are the 7 best diets

Let Peace Begin With You

We all have them in our family.  People who can’t live without drama.  Don’t let them pull you into their frenzy.  Step back and take a deep breath.  You will bring them with you and make their life a little less crazy along with your own!

Being Enough

Posted on Updated on

 

I have been dealing with someone lately who seems to think that in order to feel respected, he needs to get expensive gifts. It made me think about this clip from the movie “Cool Runnings.”

John Candy tells Darice that if you are not enough without it, you will never be enough with it.

So many people get caught up in getting awards.  Fancy cars.  Expensive gifts.  It’s almost like a drug.  They are constantly looking for the next fix.

I have been thinking about setting intentions this year.  Not coming up with goals. Instead,  I want to look at how I live my life.  What do I intend to do this yea?  I want  to simplify my life.  Declutter it of things and people that don’t bring me pleasure or peace.

What about you?  What are you doing with this year?

Valerie Von Sobel just had a birthday. In March, the philanthropist and artist noted her new age in an Instagram picture, dressed in second-skin leggings and a white blouse overlaid in a sheer black fabric, perhaps organza. It is not the outfit you’d expect of someone born three-quarters of a century ago, but at 75,…

 

Hey!  We can get better with age!

 

They say that more and more people are living longer.  Not only that, but healthier.

I use to say ‘yeah right’.  However they say that a picture is worth a thousand words!

I have a ways to go before I hit 75, but it looks like it can be pretty exciting.

Enjoy!

Viral Food Moments of 2015

Posted on Updated on

You never think of food videos as going viral, except in the worst way.  However, there were some epic moments in food videos for 2015.  We saw a rat struggle with a piece of pizza in the subway.  Starbuck coffee cups became part of the “war on Christmas.”  Ryan Gosling wouldn’t eat his cereal.  My favorite was this one:

Tipping as a social statement

Waiting tables is challenging enough — long hours on your feet, low pay, and having to remember who asked for no mayo and who wanted extra cheese on their burger. It’s even more challenging when customers play a game of chance with a server’s hard-earned gratuity. Several stories of customers’ outrageous tipping, both generous and stingy, went viral this year. Take the case of Jessica Morris, who was denied a tip and accused of hitting on another woman’s husband by a patron at TGI Friday’s. There was also Jess Jones, a 20-year-old waitress at a Belmar, N.J., diner who called out in a Facebook post a group of eight diners for leaving no tip. But not all servers suffered in 2015 — one waitress received a $1,000 tip on an $85 bill at the Irma Hotel in Cody, Wyo., as part of the viral movement #TipsForJesus. In Florida, a college student and mother of a young child earned a $1,000 tip on a $29 bill at her job at Winghouse of Largo, which the waitress used to move her family to a new apartment. One lucky 19-year-old server at a Frankfort, Ill., barbecue joint received a $1,000 tip on a $20.31 check, which was put toward his college tuition. In Washington, D.C., a gumbo-loving patron at restaurant Blue 44 left a $2,000 tip on a $93 bill. And one lucky server at a Long Island clam bar earned a 1,000 percent tip from one very funny — and very generous — patron: comedian Amy Schumer. Now that’s feel-good comedy at its best.

Enjoy!

These Aren’t The Gifts You’re Looking For

From YadaDarcyYada!

 

Another gem from Darcy!

 

Thanks for the ideas!  And you are so right that I hadn’t thought of these ideas for Christmas.   Yes!  I found a couple of them I am definitely following up on!

Honesty – they may not appreciate it at first, but it might be the best gift ever, someday.  Promise you will come and bail me out if this lands me in jail?

And I like the Indie books idea!  I checked out your indie author/blogger, A.H. Browne.  I am married to a sci-fi geek.  He would love him.  I checked out the reviews for Saloon at the Edge of Everywhere & The Otherwhere Chronicles. It too late for Christmas, but Jim will be getting them for his birthday!  Check it out at  http://pouringmyartout.com/
