MEN & WOMEN ARE NOT ALIKE. No! Really??

Yes, women are prettier. Sure, you already knew that. But, after countless hours of surveys and studies on the following topics, these facts have emerged:

  • Maturity -- Women mature much faster than men. Most 17-year-old females can function as adults. Most 17-year-old males are still trading baseball cards and giving each other wedgies after gym class. This is why high school romances rarely work.
  • Handwriting -- To their credit, men do not decorate their penmanship. They just chicken-scratch. Women use scented, colored stationary and they dot their i's with circles and hearts. Women use ridiculously large loops in their p's and g's" It is a royal pain to read a note when she's dumping you, she'll put a smiley face at the end of the note.
  • Relationships -- First of all, a man does not call a relationship a relationship. He refers to it as "that time when me and Suzie was doing it on a regular basis." When a relationship ends, a woman will cry and pour her heart out to her girlfriends, and she will write a poem titled "All Men Are Idiots." Then she will get on with her life. A man has a little more trouble letting go. Six months after the break-up, at 3 am on a Saturday night, he will call and say, "I just wanted to let you know you ruined my life, and I'll never forgive you, and I hate you, and you're a total floozy. But I want you to know there's always a chance for us." This is known as the drunken phone call, that 99% of all men have made at least once. There are community colleges that offer courses to help men get over this need; alas, these classes rarely prove effective.
  • Sex -- Women prefer 30-45 minutes of foreplay. Men prefer 30-45 seconds of foreplay. Men consider driving back to her place as part of the foreplay.
  • Bathrooms -- A man has at most six items in his bathroom - a toothbrush, toothpaste, shaving cream, razor, a bar of soap, and a towel. The average number of items in a typical woman's bathroom is 437. A man would not be able to identify most of these items.
  • Groceries -- A woman makes a list of things she needs and then goes to the store and buys these things. A man waits till the only items left in his fridge are half a lemon and something turning green. Then he goes grocery shopping. He buys everything that looks good. By the time a man reaches the checkout counter, his cart is packed tighter that the Clampett's car on Beverly Hillbillies. Of course, this will not stop him from going to the 10-items-or-less lane.
  • Going out -- When a man says he is ready to go out, it means he is ready to go out. When a woman says she is ready to go out, it means she will be ready to go out, as soon as she finds her other earring, finishes putting on her makeup.
  • Offspring -- Ah, children. A woman knows all about her children. She knows about dentist appointments and soccer games and romances and best friends, their favorite foods and secret fears and hopes and dreams. A man is vaguely aware of some short people living in the house.
  • Dressing up -- A woman will dress up to go shopping, water the plants, empty the garbage, answer the phone, read a book, get the mail. A man will dress up for: weddings, funerals.
  • Laundry -- Women do laundry every couple of days. A man will wear every article of clothing he owns, including his surgical pants that were hip about eight years ago, before he will do the laundry. When he is finally out of clothes, he will wear a dirty sweatshirt inside out, rent a U-Haul and take his mountain of clothes to the laundromat. Men always expect to meet beautiful women at the laundromat. This is a myth.
  • Weddings -- When reminiscing about weddings, women talk about "the ceremony." Men talk about "the bachelor party."
  • Socks -- Men wear sensible socks. They wear standard white sweatsocks. Women wear strange socks. They are cut way below the ankles, have pictures of clouds on them, and have a big fuzzy ball on the back.
  • Nicknames -- If Gloria, Suzanne, Deborah and Michelle get together for lunch, they will call each other Gloria, Suzanne, Deborah and Michelle. But if Mike, Dave, Rob and Jack go out for a brewsky, they will affectionately refer to each other as Bullet-Head, Godzilla, Peanut Brain and Useless.
  • Eating -- A woman will generally admire an ornate desert for the artistic work it is, praising its creator and waiting a suitable interval before she reluctantly takes a small sliver off one edge. A man will start by grabbing the cherry in the center.
  • Clothes -- Men don't discard clothes. The average man still has the gym shirt he wore in high school. He thinks a jacket is "just getting broken in" about the time it develops holes in the elbows. A man will let new shirts sit on the shelf in their original packaging years before putting them to use, hoping they'll become more comfortable with age. Women think clothes are radioactive, with a half-life of one year. They exercise precautions to avoid contamination by last year's fashions.
  • Trust -- The average woman would really like to be told if her mate is fooling around behind her back. This same woman wouldn't tell her best friend if she knew the best friends' mate was having an affair. She'll tell all her other friends, however. The average man won't say anything if he knows that one of his friend's mates is fooling around, and he'd rather not know if his mate is having an affair either, out of fear that it might her friends. He will tell all his friends about his own affairs, though, so they can be ready if he needs an alibi.
  • Driving -- A typical man thinks he's Mario Andretti as soon as he slips behind the wheel of his car. The fact that it's an 8-year-old Honda doesn't keep him from trying to out-accelerate the guy in the Porsche who's attempting to cut him off; freeway on-ramps are exciting challenges to see who has the right stuff on the morning commute. Does he or doesn't he? Only his body shop knows for sure. Insurance companies understand this behavior, and price their policies accordingly. A woman will slow down to let a car merge in front of her, and for another woman who was busy adding the finishing touches to her makeup.
  • Shoes -- The average man has 4 pairs of footwear: running shoes, dress shoes, boots, and slippers. The average woman has shoes 4 layers thick on the floor of her closet. Most of them hurt her feet.

Happy Thanksgiving from the Morning Jolt!

Thanksgiving is a time to recognize all that God has given us each passing day. We say 'thanks' for the most precious gifts in our lives - our family, friends and loved ones.

My Thanksgiving wish for all of you is to be reminded of what really counts and what remains important, no matter what our circumstances or what life brings and to cherish all the special people and moments along the way…..


Have a turkey-fic Thanksgiving!

REDUCE HOLIDAY DATING STRESS

Great Expectations dating expert Robert Fisher offers these tips to help singles reduce the stress of holiday dating:

  • Stop, think and plan -- Many professionals have an implementation calendar at work; they also need one for their personal lives as well. "Think in advance about the business, religious, community and neighborhood events that you'd like to attend, and start thinking now about which ones you'd like to bring a date to," says Fisher.
  • Take time for a "reconnaissance date" -- An important office or family holiday function is the wrong place for a first date. Schedule a "reconnaissance date" before the event. Fisher notes that even if it's just a cup of coffee or lunch, a reconnaissance date gets the preliminary awkwardness out of the way and gets some chemistry going. This simple strategy can make all the difference before one is "on stage" in front of co-workers or family.
  • Hold your horses -- It's natural to do some "what if" thinking when meeting someone new, but remember to pull in the reins. "Although there's no better time to arrive with the perfect partner, this is not the time to pin all of your hopes on meeting your dream mate," cautions Fisher.
  • Go easy on the spirits -- Holiday party drinking stories are almost as much a part of the seasonal lore as are Rudolph and Frosty the Snowman. "Go easy on the alcohol," warns Fisher. "Adrenaline from nervousness or jitters can amplify alcohol's effect. If you're going to drink at a holiday party with your date, a good rule of thumb is to cut in half the amount you'd normally consume in a given period of time."


SIGN TAKES THE HASSLE OUT OF TURKEY DAY

Does Thanksgiving and the annual onslaught of hungry friends and loved ones wear you out, physically and emotionally? Well, relax, because this year you can follow the Weekly World News' handy zodiac guide and take the hassle out of turkey day:

  • Aries -- Are multiple cooks in your kitchen driving you batty? Don't throw them out, delegate all the chores and then enjoy watching them slave away while you relax.
  • Taurus -- Turkey day traveling gets the Bull child down - this year let the relatives bring the feast to you - tell them a psychic foretold danger ahead if you leave home on Thanksgiving.
  • Gemini -- Aunt Millie won't sit next to mon and sister's in the kitchen weeping because she thinks she's fat? Invite a bunch of friends to join the festivities and your family will be on their best behavior.
  • Cancer -- Sis's brats are blasting the stereo and Grandma's got the TV volume on high - it's driving you batty. Tempted to flip the circuit breaker and claim the power's out? Buy noise dampening earplugs and you'll survive headache free.
  • Leo -- House-proud Lions could be driven to drink by hyperactive youngsters. Here's a hint - Plan activities to divert their attention from destroying your antiques and you'll survive without mishap.
  • Virgo -- Virgos are distraught when plans go awry, and this includes your relative's chronic lateness. But tell them the feast starts an hour earlier than you plan and for once they'll arrive on time.
  • Libra -- Meddlesome relatives annoy privacy-loving Librans. Resist the urge to stuff a turkey leg in nosy Aunt Nellie's mouth. Fake deafness instead, responding to questions with "Eh? Eh?"
  • Scorpio -- Resist the temptation to stuff Uncle Milton down the disposal, or shove Cousin Billy Bob down the trash chute, Scorpion. Turn your annoyance on the pots and pans, retiring to the kitchen after dinner to scrub and polish your irritation away.
  • Sagittarius -- Archers hate being cooped up with a bunch of annoying relatives. Organize a long walk for the crowd - you'll enjoy the great outdoors and exhaust them so they'll go home early.
  • Capricorn -- Do you always get stuck at a skin full of dirty dishes while everyone else kicks back and relaxes? Announce that exposure to detergent makes you break out in hives - then cleanup's on them.
  • Aquarius -- Fretting over who brings what stresses you out - not to mention that half your relatives can't cook. This year order a prepared feast from the deli.
  • Pisces -- Peaceful Pisces dislikes arguments. When your relatives start quibbling pretend to faint - they'll get so distracted the subject won't come up again.

WORK OFF THE BIRD

Great News! You Can Drink Your Own Pee!

We've got great news for you this morning-- astronauts aboard the International Space Station told Mission Control in Houston that their new urine recycler has passed the test and is working just fine! In other words -- now you can drink your own pee! However, a separate testing will be conducted back on Earth on samples of processed urine, sweat and condensation before astronauts can start drinking purified water which is scheduled next year. The $154-million system, distils, filters, ionizes and oxidizes wastewater, including urine, into fresh drinking water. Yum, Yum! (myway.com)

Never Steal From a Woman With a Frozen Turkey

In Raleigh, North Carolina, a would-be carjacker was stopped cold -- quite literally -- when he tried to steal the car of a woman armed with a frozen turkey! Police say 30-year-old Fred Louis Ervin allegedly stole money from a gas station before running across the street to a grocery store parking lot where he began beating Irene Moorman Bailey while stealing her car. But soon other shoppers came to her rescue including one who hit Ervin squarely with a frozen turkey! Despite serious head injuries, Ervin still got away in Bailey's car and hit several other cars as he fled. But police arrested him a short time later. (myway.com)

  • Antifreeze
  • Chocolate
  • Acetaminophen and non-steroidal anti-inflammatories

Have you ever been taken advantage of by an auto mechanic?

Don't worry you're not the first. And so it doesn't ever happen again, here are 5 things your auto mechanic won't tell you (from AAA):

  1. Always request an estimate.
  2. Your work order should also clearly state a guarantee on the work. If not, ask the shop what type of guarantee is provided on both workmanship and parts.
  3. If the mechanic is replacing something on your vehicle, ask for your old parts back.
  4. You should always study your bill for doubled labor charges. If you're getting a new water pump and you replace the timing belt at the same time, there's no additional labor to do the timing belt just the additional cost of the parts.
  5. Don't replace your tires until you do your own tread test. Do a simple penny test. Find the wear bar on the tire and insert the penny in the tread. The less you see of Lincoln's head the better the tread.

WKRP turkey drop scene Happy Thanksgiving


Turkey Bowling For Thanksgiving
The city of Cincinnati is gearing up for their annual Turkey Bowl, an annual outdoor Thanksgiving tradition. Contestants try to knock down ten pins by using frozen turkeys in place of bowling balls. The lanes are set up on the holiday season ice skating rink on downtown's landmark Fountain Square. This year's winner gets $100 cash and a full set of the "WKRP in Cincinnati" DVDs including the famous "Turkeys Away" episode in which the mythical radio station gives away live turkeys by dropping them out of a helicopter to their deaths-- because the station manager thought turkeys could fly. And just in case your worried about the political correctness of all this, the frozen birds used in Turkey Bowl are discarded store turkeys not intended for anyone's table. (AHN News)

TOP 10 TIPS TO AVOID PACKING ON HOLIDAY POUNDS

Packing on pounds is easy to do during the holidays. So here are 10 suggestions to help you keep the weight off from nutrition and health expert Dr. James D. Krystosik:

  1. Get plenty of sleep. Being tired often triggers eating pangs.
  2. Drink plenty of water. If you don't take in liquid, the body retains it, increasing body weight by 10 to 15 pounds.
  3. Curb appetite by loading up on "good carbs" - high fiber veggies like beans, whole grains such as oats and brown rice and fruits.
  4. Limit your intake of proteins.
  5. Keep stress levels down by walking, exercising and meditation. Stress can spark the appetite.
  6. Avoid "bad carbs" like high-starch potatoes, breads and desserts.
  7. Vinegar reduces the body's absorption of "bad carbs" so use a variety of vinegar with olive oil for salad dressings.
  8. Stay away from foods with hydrogenated oils and the sweetener aspartame. These substances do not aid in weight loss.
  9. Choose foods with "good fats" like soy beans, avocado, nuts and seeds, fish like salmon, tuna and halibut and leafy green veggies.
  10. Keep in touch with a pal who has similar diet and health goals to boost your willpower during the holiday food feast.

DID YOU KNOW?

Anytime you have more than one drink, you boost your risk of developing metabolic syndrome, a set of conditions that includes low HDL cholesterol, high blood pressure, and excess belly fat. In a study in The Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism, women who had more than one drink on any given day had a 60% higher risk for these conditions than those who stuck to one, says lead study author Amy Z. Fan, Ph.D. (Women's Health)

The University of Michigan says doctors are exposed to the cold virus more than any other segment of the population, and they've devised ways to protect themselves from getting sick. Why they don't share their secrets with their patients more often than they do is a mystery, but preventive medicine specialist Dr. Mark Moyad has spilled the beans. Doctors routinely take Ester-C vitamin C tablets and suck on zinc lozenges, he says. They also eat raw garlic. It contains powerful anti-viral compounds that, unfortunately, are destroyed by heating. To ward off bad breath, they blend garlic with chickpeas and deodorizing parsley into a mixture called hummus. (Sun)

That "medium" soda may actually be a large. Duke University researchers have discovered that some fast food chains are encouraging customers to buy larger soft drinks, which justifies higher prices, by increasing the number of ounces in all sizes of drinks. They know what you may not: Most people subconsciously pick the middle option without considering the actual amount, says study author Richard Staelin, Ph.D. Remember, 8 ounces is one serving. (Men's Health)

Credit and debit cards have become indispensable. Most Americans are now using them, rather than cash, to make purchases, both big and small. But the days when you "can't leave home without" your credit card are rapidly coming to an end. Financial institutions are testing biometric scanners that will allow you to buy anything you want just by touching a scanner with the tip of your finger. The scanner will read your fingerprint, which is unique to you, and compare it with a copy on fine at your bank or credit card company. If it gets a valid match, you'll automatically be charged for the item and can walk out of the store with it no checkout lines involved. In a trial run, one bank has already installed fingerprint ATM machines in the United Arab Emirates. To get cash, just touch the screen and type in your PIN. Others plans include a chip in your cell phone. Pass the phone over the product you want to buy and it will tell you the price and other details. It will debit your bank account after you punch in a confirming ID number. (Sun)

Stress can make allergies worse, concludes a study from the Ohio State University College of Medicine. Researchers subject people to a stressful public speaking situation and then pricked their skin with allergens. Those who reported moderate anxiety developed allergic bumps that were 75% bigger than ones they developed when tested after calming situations. Stress increases levels of inflammatory proteins, which may aggravate the allergic response, says principal investigator Janice Kiecolt-Glaser, Ph.D. (Women's Health)

The Cleveland Clinic reports one of the biggest risk to your overall health could be your credit card balance and other debts you're carrying. People who are in debt are much more likely to suffer from stomach ulcers, depression and even heart attacks, than those who live within their means. Find out where your money is going by keeping a record of every penny you spend for a month or two. Then look for ways to cut your expenditures. Don't keep the problem bottle up. Confide in your spouse or a close friend, and enlist that person's help in getting your fiances under control. (Sun)

Skip the cold cereal: Eating eggs and bacon in the morning can help you control your hunger later in the day. Indiana University scientists determined that dieters who consumed their biggest dose of daily protein at breakfast felt full longer than those who ate more of the nutrient at lunch or dinner. The upshot: "They were less likely to overeat the rest of the day," says study author Heather Leidy, Ph.D. To fend off hunger, shoot for at least 20 to 30 grams of protein at breakfast. (Men's Health)

COLOR YOURSELF HEALTHY

Modern medical practitioners are rediscovering the healing power of color, a technique that's been used effectively in traditional Indian medicine for thousands of years. Here are the ayurvedic colors and the conditions they treat:

  • Red -- boost energy and self-confidence. Use it to treat sexual dysfunction, anemia, depression, low blood pressure, asthma, chronic cough and skin diseases.
  • Orange -- promotes cheerfulness and happiness. It's effective against artery disease, heart problems, anorexia, kidney problems, menstrual distress, lung disease and lower back pain.
  • Yellow -- is associated with mental clarity and a healthy nervous system. It's helpful in the treatment of digestive problems, diabetes and arthritis.
  • Green -- brings a sense of peace and harmony. Surround yourself with green if you suffer from eye problems, tumors, joint pain and swelling or diabetes.
  • Blue -- calms and relaxes. It can banish headaches, muscle cramps, insomnia, throat problems and disorders of the lymph system.
  • Violet -- is the color of spiritual awareness and creativity. It cures insomnia, kidney and bladder problems and it boosts the immune system.

Why You Should Never Agree To Naked Photos!

We've said it before and we'll say it again. If you agree to allow yourself to be photographed nude, you're asking for trouble. In Fayetteville, Arkansas, Tina Sherman learned the hard way after his husband, Phillip, accidentally left his cell phone behind at McDonalds. Stored on the phone were nude photos of Tina -- photos that then somehow ended up online. The Shermans are now suing McDonalds, the individual franchise owner and the store manager for $3 million bucks. This is to pay for their suffering, embarrassment and the cost of having to move to a new home. Phillip called the McDonald's after realizing he had left his phone behind and says he was assured by employees they would keep the phone secure until he could come pick it up. Nobody from McDonald's has had any comment.

Cosmopolitan gives us five comments that turn him off

  1. "Do I look fat in this outfit? No, really be honest."
  2. "I can't go out in public with my hair this messy."

  4. "I feel like such a pig. I knew I shouldn't have eaten so much."
  5. "Doesn't that girl wear too much makeup?"

Are you working too hard???

One-third of American workers suffer from job-related stress because they're being severely overworked, says a study by the Families and Work Institute. The study also says about one-half of U.S. employees complain about handling too many tasks, being interrupted too often to deal with other tasks or problems - or both. The chances of suffering from chronic job-related stress are worst for baby boomers between 40 and 50 (37%), employees of companies ravaged by layoffs (42%) and workers at companies that refuse to offer flexible schedules (56%).

Milk does the love life good!

It turns out that Vitamin D may act as pheromones to attract the opposite sex. It works in Iberian rock lizards, at least, and it may work in humans, too. A Spanish team at the National Museum of Natural Sciences in Madrid concludes that essential nutrients, such as vitamins, can make females become excited by secretions in males. When certain vitamins are in the male secretions, it's a sign of good health.

The truth can set you free! Well, maybe not!

He who said "The truth can set you free" probably wasn't in a relationship. Every guy has his cache of fallback excuses -- not egregious, deceitful fabrications, just little white lies to help smooth things over. You can usually rely on tried and tested classics to get you through the "Do I look fat in these jeans?" moments, but sometimes situations arise that make you scramble to come up with something new. AskMen.com assembled a list of 10 of the most common male excuses to help you avoid ever having to flounder in such a situation again.

  1. You look great in everything you wear.
  2. I was just looking at how skanky she was dressed.
  3. I don't need a holiday to remind me how special you are.
  4. didn't want to wake you up.
  5. I'm not really a breasts guy anyway.
  6. I didn't want to buy you something that you didn't want.
  7. It wasn't my fault. [insert name of friend she already doesn't like] made me late.
  8. _____ just got dumped.
  9. I am just a really picky eater.
  10. I have got work to do.

What holiday pastime makes you feel closest to your Honey?

A MensHealth.com poll asked women, "What holiday pastime makes you feel closest to your guy?":

  • 40% said sitting by the fire
  • 20% said decorating the tree
  • 18% said a big family dinner
  • 10% said making a snowman
  • 5% said watching a Charlie Brown DVD
  • 4% said exchanging gifts
  • 3% said religious services

Women's Health aslso asked, "Holidays with the in-laws means..."

  • 48% said laughter and good times
  • 23% said holding my tongue until it's numb
  • 17% said compromises with a side of compromise
  • 12% said constant wine refills

Older is better!

Although attracting a younger man's attentions may be flattering ladies, a recent survey says mature men make the best mates. Researchers Martin Fieder and Susanne Huber, of the University of Vienna concluded that the most successful relationships occurred when the man was four to six years older than the woman. In fact, scientists believe the pairing of older guys with younger women is actually a biological phenomenon that humans instinctively follow. Young, educated women also find older men an interesting challenge because senior males know more and can guide her and enrich her life more so than a contemporary. Researchers also discovered that older men tend to have more money, better manners and career achievements - traits sure to win the heart of a years younger lady. Plus, no matter how old you get, you'll always be the younger woman.

WHY MEN LIE

The #1 reason men lie is "to have sex," according to a survey conducted by Hamilton Beattie & Staff for the book, "All Men are Liars: An Incomplete Guide to Relationship Trauma," by Jeffrey Rodengen. The survey found:

  • By a margin of 2 to 1, men and women believe men routinely lie about sex, relationships, politics, business, their personal and professional achievements and their abilities at sports.
  • When women lie, they not only do it very well, but also are more likely to tell just a white lie to protect someone else.
  • Most people believe politicians tell more lies than business leaders, journalists, celebrities and pro athletes combined.
  • Former President Bill Clinton is seen as a bigger liar than either George W. Bush or Richard Nixon.
  • The leading celebrity liars are O.J. Simpson, Michael Jackson, Donald Trump, and Tom Cruise.

The position in which you sleep at night reveals your personality.

The position in which you sleep at night -- whether it's all curled up in a fetal position or sprawled out across the bed -- reveals your personality. That's the word from Chris Idzikowski, director of the Sleep Assessment and Advisory Service. After spending years analyzing six common sleeping positions, he has concluded that each is linked to a particular personality type.

  1. The Fetal (41%) -- People who sleep this way, which is the most common way to sleep, are described as tough on the outside, but sensitive on the inside. Often shy when they first meet someone, people who sleep like this soon relax. Twice as many women as men sleep in the fetal position.
  2. The Log (15%) -- People who sleep this way lie on their side with both arms down, close to their side. They tend to be social and easy-going people who enjoy being part of the in-crowd. While they are trusting of strangers, they are often gullible.
  3. The Yearner (13%) -- Sleeping on your side with both arms stretched out in front of you describes the yearner's sleep position. While they have an open nature, they can be suspicious and even cynical. Such people are slow to make up their mind, but once a decision has been made, they are unlikely to ever change it.
  4. The Soldier (8%) -- Lying flat on the back with both arms pinned at the side is the sleep position of the soldier. People who sleep this way are quiet and reserved. They don't like a fuss and set themselves and others to high standards. People who sleep like this are more likely to snore and have a bad night's sleep.
  5. The Freefall (7%) -- People who sleep this way lie on their tummy with their hands at the sides of their head. While they tend to be brash and gregarious on the surface, they are nervy and thin-skinned underneath. They don't like criticism or extreme situations. This sleep position is good for digestion.
  6. The Starfish (5%) -- People in the starfish position sleep on their back with both arms up around the pillow. Because they are always ready to listen to others and offer help when needed, they make the best of friends; however, they generally don't like to be the center of attention. People who sleep like this are more likely to snore and have a bad night's sleep, just like the soldier position.

Shopping the Holiday Sale Ads 2008

How do you decide if the deal is real? Here are some tips to help you get the most for your money. (from FTC.gov).

  • Shop around. A "sale" price isn't always the "best" price. Some merchants may offer a sale price on the item you want for a limited time; other merchants may offer items at a discount everyday.
  • Read sale ads carefully. Some ads may say "quantities limited," "no rain checks," or "not available at all stores." Before you step out the door, call to make sure the item you want is in stock.
  • Consider your time and travel costs. If an item is on sale, but the store is across town, include your time and the costs of transportation and parking in the price.
  • Look for price-matching policies. Some merchants will match, or even beat, a competitor's prices.
  • Go online. Check out websites that compare prices. If you decide to buy from an online merchant, keep shipping costs and delivery time in mind.
  • Carefully consider bargain offers that are based on purchases of additional merchandise. For example, "Buy One, Get One Free" or "Free Gift with Purchase." If you don't really want or need the item, it's not a deal.
  • Clip coupons. Coupons are useful when they save you money on what you're already planning to buy. Check coupons for any restrictions. For example, do expiration dates apply, or do you have to spend a certain amount before you can use the coupon? Some retailers will accept expired coupons, and even coupons from their competitors. Check with the retailer before you leave home to learn their policy.
  • Ask about sale adjustments. If you buy an item at regular price and it goes on sale the next week, can you get a credit or refund for the discounted amount?

Department of Homeland Security is testing a scanner that can detect evil intentions...

In a bid to weed out terrorists before they get on an airplane, the Department of Homeland Security is testing a scanner that can detect evil intentions lurking in your mind. The scanner, called MALINTENT, consists of sensors that read body temperature, heart rate and breathing to determine if you're planning to wreak havoc on the flight. The device will be used in conjunction with more traditional security scanners that look for bombs and other concealed weapons. MALINTENT is based on the theory that prior to acting on criminal impulses, people have certain characteristic physical reactions, such as elevated heart and breathing and an increase in body temperature the same kind of signs a lie detector test can uncover. But with MALINTENT, you don't have to be connected to the machine by wires. It does its work while you pass through a portal that looks like a metal detector. (Sun)

Do you really want to go all night long???

For eons, singers have crowed allusions of all night sex in their lyrics, but can you really go "all night long?" According to a new study published in the international Journal Of Sexual Medicine, the best sex should last between seven and 13 minutes and even three minute sex is considered "adequate." In a survey of American and Canadian men and women, most consider making love for more than 13 minutes to be "too long." That should have a calming effect on couples who believe sex should last 15 to 20 minutes.

Kissing could be the best boost to your love life!

Especially for women who need to rev up their libidos. That's the word from sex therapist Laura Berman, founder of the Berman Center for Sexual Health, who insists that great sex begins with a kiss. Berman says that "Kissing is so important and goes by the wayside so quickly." Berman, who uses talk therapy to help couples build stronger relationships and improve their sex lives, has a homework assignment that will help couples get in the mood. "Start giving your partner a 10-second kiss at least once a day," she says. "You'll be surprised to see what a difference it makes and how long it feels compared to what you normally do." This is very important: The kiss should just be that: a kiss. Men, make sure you kiss just for the sake of kissing and not as a prelude to sex.

10 ideas on how to celebrate the holidays on a shoestring budget:

  1. Make a spending plan and stick to it.
  2. Shop early -- before Thanksgiving. This eliminates last minute panic buying.
  3. Be prepared each time you leave home to shop. Carry a list of who you are buying for and how much you can spend. Be specific. Get agreements from family members.
  4. Pay cash. Credit card users typically spend twice as much money as others.
  5. Use the "envelope method." Prepare one envelope per person, placing money in each envelope. When the envelope is empty, you are finished buying for that person.
  6. Shop when you have lots of energy.
  7. Shop with a buddy, or not. A buddy may encourage you to splurge, so choose your buddy carefully.
  8. Ask sales staff about upcoming discounts. They will usually tell you, but won't offer the information unless you ask.
  9. Don't buy anything for yourself.
  10. Write the size of your total consumer debt at the top of your shopping list. Reality check!

HIS & HER SLEEP HABITS

According to author Allan Pease, here are a few truths...

  • Men like to be closer to the door. In seven out of 10 relationships, the male opts for this spot. And it's not so he has a clearer path to the fridge; rather, "it's to protect his loved one from intruders," says Pease. "In ancient cultures, the male always guarded the cave opening." What if women always sleep near the entry? Then they are the dominant ones in the relationship, emotionally or mentally, to their man.
  • Switching positions can be harmful to your sleep. Ever stayed at a hotel with a comfy bed, yet both of you had a lousy night's rest -- and you don't know why? You probably switched positions without realizing it. Maybe you still slept on the right side and he slept on the left, like at home, but suddenly you were near the door.
  • A woman scoots to her man's space when he's out of town. "It's because you are subconsciously drawn to his scent, which is still on his pillow," explains Pease.
  • Guys spread out when you're away. "This is a dominant position: Male monkeys do this," says Pease.

WAYS TO CREEP OUT YOUR DATE

(Casual Chat) In the early stages of a relationship, the impression you create is important. You don't want to freak her out or have her heading for the hills. Here are a few things to keep a handle on during the get-to-know-you dates to make sure you make it successfully into a relationship and avoid being the topic of discussion at her next girl's night out.

  • Making persistent contact
  • Giving too much disclosure
  • Being possessive or overprotective
  • Overstepping boundaries with her friends
  • Dropping by unexpectedly
  • Having outbursts
  • Overspending

Women read too much into what Men say!

Relationship expert Laura Snyder says that women tend to read too much into what men say. You know when he says stuff like, "I don't feel like going out tonight." Instead, she hears "I don't feel like going out with you anymore." Synder claims that unlike men, who tend to mean what they say, women tend to have layers of meaning in even the simplest statement. Here's more:

  • She says: "I'm sorry." She means: "I apologized. Now it's your turn."
  • She says: "I think I've gained a few pounds..." She means: "But I'm still attractive, right."
  • She says: "I'm ready to go. But you should stay and have fun." She means: "You better come with me."
  • She says: "You're really great with your nephews." She means: "I want to know if you ever want to have kids without you freaking out."
  • She says: "I'm fine." She means: "I'm pissed and it's your job to find out why."

INITIALS REVEAL LOVE LIFE

Ladies, your first initial is more than just a letter. It reveals the kind of lover you are and points the way to the mate most likely to make your dreams come true. The study of letters, acrophonology, is an amazingly accurate way to delve into the psyche, says psychologist Andy Cummings. "Researchers found ancient texts that support the belief that your first initial relates to specific personality traits," she explains. "And what the ancients believed is still valid today. In particular, studies have found that acrophonology is especially relevant to passion and romance." Look for your letter below and see what it reveals about the lover who lurks in your soul.

  1. You'll do whatever it takes to win the heart of your lover. Your soul mate to keep hidden from others.
  2. There's nothing you value more than gifts that prove your lover's devotion. Sentimental and giving, you love papering your mate as well.
  3. You're a social animal who craves the closeness of a long-term partner. You want a mate who's both a pal and a lover. Communication and closeness are vital.
  4. You're highly passionate and intense, and you require the same zeal from your honey. You may be too possessive at times, but your loyalty is beyond dispute.
  5. Your mate should be a good listener because you love to talk. But beyond all the chatter, once you give your heart away, you'll never stray from his side.
  6. You're a born romantic who loves to turn fantasy into real life. Notorious for showing affection to public, you need a mate who's not shy.
  7. You're a perfectionist, but you don't demand more of your lover than you do of yourself. He must be your intellectual equal to keep you interested.
  8. Financial status is high on your list of priorities. You're hesitant about sex during the dating phase, but you jump right in once you know the love will last.
  9. Lusty and sure of your powers, you prefer an older man. You need to be worshiped by a lover who appreciates your sexually adventurous spirit.
  10. It takes someone with stamina to be your lover because you're a dynamo. Although you're a bit of a loner, you're idealistic about love and need it to last.
  11. Shy and secretive, no one would know there's a wildly sensual woman behind the mask. You take love seriously and have the patience to wait for the right person.
  12. You must have a man in your life. You especially enjoy the wining and dining rituals of dating, and a guy with a brain is a real turn on.
  13. When you fall in love, it's head over heels. Your all-consuming passion must be met with equal ardor to keep you happy.
  14. You're unassuming on the outside, but an insatiable lover is lurking just below the surface. You need a lover patient enough to bring out your wilder side.
  15. As a lover, you're secretive about your desires, but once they're unleashed with a trusted partner, look out. You must curb your tendency to be jealous of your mate.
  16. You're flirtatious and love a good party. You value your reputation and social standing, so a good-looking, intelligent mate is a must.
  17. You require constant activity, so you crave a partner who can keep up with you sexually and otherwise. Also, you're intrigued by people from other cultures.
  18. When it comes to a lover, you'll take an Einstein over a Schwarzenegger. But under your buttoned-down, sweet exterior, you're a sexy gal who's a demanding playmate.
  19. Your career and finances must be in order before you'll even consider romance. You don't give your heart away lightly, but once you do, it's for life.
  20. You want a partner who takes the lead in the game of love. Flowers, soft music, and candlelight are guaranteed to ignite your sexual fireworks.
  21. You have a generous heart and lavish love and gifts on your sweetheart. When you're not with a partner, you're constantly on the prowl for someone to adore.
  22. Eccentric guys peak your interest. Settling down is tough for you because you value your freedom and love living on the wild side.
  23. Your willful spirit makes you determined when you're pursuing a love interest. Sometimes blinded by love, you believe nothing is too good for your sweetheart.
  24. You're adept at carrying on several relationships simultaneously. Even when you're committed to one person, your mind never stops whirling.
  25. You're sexy, sensual and in control at all times. If your love interest won't let you run the show, there could be a test of wills in your relationship.
  26. You're a selfless lover who attracts men with problems you think only you can solve. Sincere, passionate and dreamy, you enjoy a rich fantasy life.

What smells good may not be good for you!

With literally thousands of chemicals and fragrances added to everything from moisturizer to nail polish, how can I know if my beauty products are safe? AOL.com's "Body" section has some great tips to get you started:

  • Minimize Fragrances - Beware of the word "fragrance." You might think it's something that simply smells pretty, but scents are chemicals.
  • Scrutinize Nail Polish - Phthalates -- used widely in nail polish -- are a big topic of controversy and research. Scientists have been studying this group of chemicals for at least 20 years and have found that they may be linked to birth defects in humans (they're definitely toxic to animals).
  • Use Hair Dyes Less Often - Salons are not required to list the ingredients in their hair dye, but we know that many contain coal tar ingredients -- chemicals that have been linked to cancer.
  • Avoid Skin Lighteners - You want to avoid anything that changes your skin composition, watch out for products that have hydroquinone -- a chemical that bleaches the skin and can cause lesions.
  • Choose Shampoo Carefully - Be especially wary of dandruff shampoos, because they often contain selenium sulfide -- a neurotoxin and possible carcinogen. If you can, avoid shampoos that list ethanolamine or diethanolamine -- called TEA or DEA on the label.
  • Simplify, Simplify, Simplify - Once you start digging into the ingredients of many of your favorite beauty products, it's easy to become disheartened. After all, who doesn't like to look nice, smell nice and have smooth skin and pretty nails? But try to look for ways to cut down the amount of products you're using: Drop a step from your skincare routine, give your hair days off from washing, use fragrance free whenever possible and always look for products with less ingredients.

The Rich get Richer!

Rich people are more likely to hide their income so they don't have to pay as much in taxes, according to a survey of Internal Revenue Service data. Taxpayers whose true 2001 income was between $500,000 and $1 million understate their adjusted gross incomes by a whopping 21% compared to an 8% "fudge" on income reported by those who made from $50,000 to $100,000 in the same year.

The Teddy Bear is introduced on this date way, way back in 1902

President Theodore Roosevelt had just gone to Mississippi hunting for a bear, but none was found. In an effort to please him, his host captured a cub that Roosevelt refused to shoot. A political cartoonist then published a cartoon about the incident. After reading the story, New York toy store owner Morris Mitchtom got Roosevelt's permission to call his new stuffed animal a "Teddy Bear," and the name stuck. Mitchton went on to found the Ideal Novelty and Toy Company.

  • People who collect teddy bears are called arctophiles.
  • At the height of the toy's early popularity, a priest in Michigan publicly denounced it as an enemy of the American family. He claimed that the stuffed toy would take over the mother's nurturing role and would eventually lead to racial suicide.
  • Bears from the German toy maker Steiff are among the world's most prized collectibles. In 2000, one Steiff bear made in 1904 was priced at almost $18,000, according to one collectibles website.

Ladies, you want a romantic man??

Find the nearest 53-year-old fella. According to a new survey, that's the age at which men are their most romantic taking their lady for a walk in the park, sprinkling roses petals in the bath and shelling out for chocolates, flowers and perfume. Of the guys age 20 to 25, only 1 in 4 admit they've recently treated their loved one to a candlelit dinner but over half of those over 50 had. And 73% of older gents say they tell their partners they look beautiful all the time and 85% refuse to leave the house without a kiss. (National Examiner)

Here is a great idea for getting a little something extra!

Okay, so here's the deal, I've got a friend who buys herself Target gift cards at the grocery store. Why? Well, the grocery store rewards her for spending the money... the gift cards count as a purchase and it's money she was going to spend at Target anyway. So far, she's earned quite a bit of free gas from the grocery store.

HOW TO SAVE DURING HOLIDAY SHOPPING (New York Daily News)

  • LEAVE THE KIDS AT HOME: Stores are working the guilt factor. When you walk around in the supermarket or the department store and little Peter's with you and he wants to have that video game or candy, you're going to put it in the basket. And that, we know from research, can increase purchases by about 20%."
  • DON'T FALL FOR DEMOS: Beware of in-store cooking lessons, advising sessions or clinics. The first thing you'll see is they will create a lot of events in stores because that's how they get people to come inside. If they manage to get customers behind their doors, chances of persuading them to buy is so much higher.
  • BE AWARE OF SEDUCTIVE SCENTS AND SOUNDS: There will be beautiful smells of cookies being baked and those type of holiday treats. We know from the 'Buyology' study that if you pump in smells in the retail stores, it makes people buy up to 29% more. Sound is going to be very prominent -- believe it or not. We observed an amazing experiment conducted a couple of months ago with French, Italian and American wines. They started to play French music -- very subtle -- and the sales of French wine skyrocketed, up to 45%.
  • CHOOSE A SMALL SHOPPING CART: Shopping baskets are going to increase in size. Studies show that the bigger basket you have, the more you spend. Also, if a basket is double the size, you are actually increasing your purchase by up to 30%."
  • WRITE A SHOPPING LIST: Nail down everything you're planning to buy that you need. Also, put brand names on it -- and not the expensive brand names. When you make a list, you're saving up to 40%-50%, because that means you're not being inspired, and inspiration is what retail is all about.
  • NEVER SHOP HUNGRY: Retailers are going to put up specials from 10 to 12 in the morning and from 5-7 in the evening because you're hungry during that period. And we do know that if you're very hungry, you'll actually buy more -- not just food, but everything. This is a way for us to fulfill the hungry feeling in our stomach. We know if you're hungry, you're likely to buy 18% more. Eat before you go out.

GET MORE SLEEP

(Self) Nearly 8 in 10 Americans skimp on sleep during the holidays, a Gallup poll finds. Here's four tricks to speed your trip to slumberland:

  • Unload -- Organize your thoughts on paper can clam a jumpy consciousness, says Nancy Foldvary-Schaefer, D.O., director of the Cleveland Clinic Foundation Sleep Medicine Program. Jot down to do's before bed to clear your mind.
  • Log off -- The screen's glow fools your brain into thinking it's daytime, explains Michael Breus, Ph.D., author of Good Night: The Sleep Doctor's 4-Week Program to Better Health (Dutton). Shut down an hour before shut-eye.
  • Blank out -- To transition to sleep, solve a Sudoku instead of reading, says Helene Emsellem, M.D., director for The Center for Sleep & Wake Disorders in Chevy Chase, MD. Puzzles are easier to disengage from than page-turners.
  • Stretch -- Try this tension melting pose from Edward Vilga, creator of the Yoga in Bed DVD: Lie with the soles of your feet together, knees open. Breathe deeply, skin into the mattress and hold for a few breaths. Sweet dreams.

The perfect way to sleep without giving your back fits is to keep your ears, shoulders and hips in a straight line and pillows can help you do it. If you sleep on your back, tuck an extra pillow under your knees and another under your lower back. If you're a side-sleeper, wedge a pillow between your knees. Tummy-sleepers should put one under their hips. If you like to read in bed, sit up straight with a pillow behind your back, another one under your knees and a third in your lap to bring the book closer to your eyes to avoid neck strain. (Sun)

ARE YOU NERVOUS?

According to Psycholgist Dr. Elayne Kahn, here's what your nervous habits reveal about you:

  • Biting nails -- You're hearty, friendly and likable and you pat people on the back for a job well done. You also like to work with your hands, baking bread or doing yard work satisfies you.
  • Coughing or throat clearing -- You want others to pay attention to you and what you say. You think carefully before giving advice to others. Words are important to you and you want to make sure they come out right. You are considerate and want others to like you.
  • Doodling or playing with a pencil -- you're creative, artistic and have lots of energy. You're also well-organized and often make lists of things you need to do or buy.
  • Grinding teeth -- you have a good sense of humor, and you laugh off irritations. You don't get angry when others are late and you're a good a listener.
  • Knuckle cracking -- You are very independent and you like exercise, contact sports and dancing.
  • Squirming & fidgeting -- If you can't sit still you're a person with a lot of different interests, a real go-getter eager to achieve what you want out of life. You pride yourself on being able to do two things at once - and do them both well.
  • Twisting hair or running fingers through hair -- You want people to notice how you look. You're conscious of your appearance, especially your hair and face. You believe in exercise, night courses and other forms of self improvement.

Are you guilty of breaking office taboos?

According to a CareerBuilder.com survey, 35% of those surveyed have puckered up with a co-worker and 31% have tipped the bottle while on the job. Not to mention the 19% of workers who have spread a rumor about a fellow employee. Here are some more office taboos:

  • Falling asleep at work (42 percent)
  • Stealing from the office (21 percent)
  • Snooping after hours (17 percent)
  • Lying about an academic background (4 percent)
  • Taking credit for someone else's work (2 percent)

Do you have a face for love?

When a woman looks at a man's face, it's not the square jaw or rugged complexion that creates sparks and sets her heart aflutter. Instead, women who are looking for a long-term relationship or marriage prefer feminine features and full lips. That's the word from researchers at Durham University in England and St. Andrews in Scotland who found that men who had masculine features, such as larger noses, smaller eyes and thicker eyebrows, were perceived by both men and women to be more dominant, less faithful, less affectionate and a worse parent. But men who had finer and more feminine facial features, such as full lips, wide eyes and thinner, more curved eyebrows, were viewed by women as better potential long-term mates.

Loneliness can kill you....

says a recent University of California study. For a long time, scientists have known that lonely people are more likely to get sick or die young. But most experts thought these people only fell ill because they didn't have friends or loved ones to care for them. But the new study indicates that being isolated from other humans can actually turn your body against you, says molecular biologist Steve Cole. "There is something about being isolated and lonely that changes your body," says Cole. The biologist and his team studied the genetic activity of white blood cells, which combat bacteria and viruses. They analyzed about 22,000 genes and linked about 200 of them to lonely people.

What is the biggest thing that sucks at work??

  • 36.6% said pointless meetings
  • 26.3% said office gossip
  • 19.4% said e-mail overload
  • 10.4% said phone calls
  • 7.3% said social networking online

Three tips to help him fall in love with you

It turns out that the adrenaline and screams associated with any white-knuckle event create a rush of the hormone that makes us fall in love, reports new research from Richard Robinson, author of "Why the One You Fancy Never Fancies You." The hormone is called phenylethylamine and is an important component in the science of attraction, it is secreted when you see someone you really like. Ladies, here are three tips to help him fall in love with you, according to Robinson:

  1. Don't wear perfume. Letting your own natural scent take precedence over an artificial one will help him sniff out important clues about your genetic make-up. Mind you, he'll have no idea he's doing that, but this will subconsciously help him to fall in love.
  2. To really impress him, keep conversation to a minimum.
  3. Concentrate on your appearance. Look your best. First impressions are typically based on how we look, rather than what we say.

Volunteering to take out the trash may keep your relationship out of the dumps

Partners who make considerate gestures feel happier with their bond than less thoughtful types do, experts at the University of Rochester in New York say. It's tough to tell which comes first, courtesy or contentment but the process is probably reciprocal. (Self)

BRAD PITT CALLED JEN AFTER 'VOGUE' INTERVIEW? Brad Pitt reportedly picked up the phone to speak with ex-wife Jennifer Aniston after her remark about Angelina Jolie having acted "uncool" was publicized. A source close to Jolie told the Chicago Sun-Times that the parents of six were ''totally thrown'' by Aniston's Vogue interview, because they thought she had already ''moved on ... and wouldn't want to reopen this old wound.'' Aniston's rep wouldn't verify such a conversation, simply responding to queries with an email that read, That's personal information. ... That really is no one's business.''

'BACHELOR' COUPLE REUNITED? There may be a future for a Bachelor couple after all. Although season seven's Charlie O'Connell and final rose recipient Sarah Brice broke up last year after two years of dating, they appear to have reconciled according to Entertainment Weekly. In a recent interview O'Connell said, "I don't want to jinx it, but it's going great. We are taking it slow and not taking each other for granted this time. The future looks good!"

SCOTT WOLF EXPECTING FIRST CHILD: Scott Wolf and his wife Kelley are expecting a son. The former Party of Five star and Real World: New Orleans cast member, who is five months along, have been married since 2004. People magazine reports that the couple is very "excited" about the impending arrival of their first child.

RYAN AND REDMOND O'NEAL'S ARRAIGNMENT PUSHED BACK: The arraignment of Ryan O'Neal and his 23-year-old son Redmond on drug charges was postponed from Thursday (November 13th) until after the new year. The Malibu District Attorney told E! News that at the O'Neals request, the court date was changed to January 9th. While officers were conducting a routine probation check-up on Redmond in September, they found methamphetamines in the family's home and arrested both men. Ryan's lawyer claims he was hiding the drugs from his son, who in addition to a felony possession charge, is also facing possession of drug paraphernalia and illegal possession of pepper spray, both of which are misdemeanors.

HUGH JACKMAN SPENDS OVER $20 MILLION ON NEW DIGS: Hugh Jackman has paid over $20 million for a luxury Manhattan triplex -- and that's a good deal. The Observer reports that Jackman was considering walking away from the deal last month, when the price was over $25 million, but has since closed on the Hudson river property, having paid between $20 and $23 million. The raw space was bought for $17.57 million in 2002, and considering Sun Microsystems co-founded Bill Joy likely spent millions fixing up the triplex, the Observer figures the sale was a loss for him. The 11,032-square-foot space features a dining room/gallery, music room, wet bar, library and exercise room.

Do you know someone who is not minding their "cellphone manners"?

  • Be nice to the person behind the counter - never be on the phone while talking to someone in person.
  • Take it outside.
  • Use your inside voice.
  • Don't rive to distraction - don't talk or text while driving.
  • In the theatre, turn off your phone, or put it on vibrate.
  • Don't use the cellphone at the gym.
  • Do not use in the public restrooms.
  • Remember the people around you. Try not to annoy them.
  • Wearing a bluetooth headset when you're not talking on the phone just makes you look like a geek

Tips from a Police Officer - What to do when you are pulled over:

  1. Always stay in the car.
  2. Pull over as soon as it is safe to.
  3. The most important rule to follow is to pull over in a safe area.
  4. Keep your hands on the wheel as the trooper or officer approaches your vehicle.
  5. It's ok to complain but don't use profanity. In some states it can get you arrested for disorderly conduct.

Country Dancing

CP and Tamara Tush Pushin at Laughlin Ranch.....
We need a good place to go Country dancing?

Any ideas?

Email me....

CMA's......

CMA Award Show 2008



Wow....What a show huh? One of thee best that I have seen in a long, long, long time! Carrrie Underwood was unbelievable hosting and singing on the show! I was talking to Kirt and saying that Carrie is Reba, Trisha, Martina and Shania all in one and has the best features of all of them! (Vocally that is)

Speaking of features did you see Shania's new look? OMG! That's all I'm allowed to say! I remember one day back in 1991 when she was a shy little girl and she walked into my office to say hello...It was hard to spell her name then because nobody had ever heard of Shania before. Now she is grown woman.

I was impressed how fast the show moved and how great the sound was! I was hooked on almost every single performance! It was great to see Kenny Loggins in the audience too..(He is a very nice man and very humble) I interviewed him a few times over my career.

Reba did a nice job on Cowgirls don't cry...Ronnie said he thought of Reba growing up a cowgirl in Oklahoma when he wrote that song.

Nice to see Brad and his wife so happy, as well as George Strait and Alan Jackson!

I hope the show attracted many new viewers to Country music! It sure is thee best music out there! I love that the songs have such great meaning. Carrie Underwood proved that last night.

God Bless Country Music, It saved my life once!

Ye-Ha

CP and Tyrone

Have you ever been fired from your dream job?

Are you freaking out because you're between jobs, or you just got fired?

Not to worry, here are some tips from Careerbuilder.com that can help you through the tough times:

  • Read - Reading for pleasure, relaxation or escape allows your mind to be engaged. Research companies or educational opportunities. Make a trip to the library. Consider reading to your children as well.
  • Reflect - The question is, what's next? Take time to ponder the question. This time in your life can provide insight into your strengths, values and contributions to the workplace. Maybe it's time to retool, return to school, relocate or explore a career change. Take time to be with the issues and uneasiness rather than avoid them. Write down your observations. Take time to deepen the learning as you prepare to forward your action.
  • Exercise - It's just what you might not feel like doing, but it is beneficial. This could be a good time to try yoga, lift weights, walk, bike or play with your children. Exercise is good for the heart and the mind. You might also enjoy the benefits of dropping some weight and firming up your body. The extra energy can be a boost to your job search and a healthier body can help you be more confident for future interviews.
  • Network - You're not the only one looking for work. You don't have to be alone with the process of a job search. Meet a friend for coffee. Attend a job-transition support group. Contact a temporary employment agency or outplacement specialist. Learn more about support opportunities and options in your area.
  • Volunteer - There are opportunities all around. What do you enjoy? How could you contribute? Whether you sort food at a food shelter, visit a nursing home or mow the lawn for an elderly neighbor, volunteering for a few hours can make a difference for you and them. Volunteering can be a form of networking as well.

COUNTRY MUSIC AWARDS HIGHLIGHTS AND STUFF!

Kenny Chesney picked up his fourth entertainer of the year award at the 42nd Annual Country Music Awards in Nashville last night (November 12, 2008). Accepting his award, Chesney said, "It's very wonderful to stand up here and hold this trophy for the fourth time. I love what I'm doing."

Carrie Underwood took home female vocalist of the year for the third year in a row and her CMA co-host Brad Paisley won male vocalist of the year for the second year in a row. Rascal Flatts was vocal group of the year and Sugarland was named vocal duo of the year. Lady Antebellum picked up best new artist.

  • The CMAs, broadcast on ABC, are more of a concert than an awards show, with a whopping 21 performances in the show's three hours. Most of the artists were all about the music, just playing or singing without special effects or backup dancers. There were a couple of exceptions, though. Taylor Swift wore a blue princess-inspired ballgown while ballroom dancers swirled around her and then "magically" ended up in a white gown. Sugarland was surrounded by open umbrellas lying on the stage and backed by an animated shower of fireworks on giant screens. Paisley joked that Sugarland got their set at a discount sale from the Beijing Olympics. Chesney had a beach-inspired set for his performance with reggae legends The Wailers. Paisley joked about sharing a dressing room with him and being annoyed by all the sand on the floor. Alan Jackson had dozens of line dancers in the aisle dancing away while he sang "Good Time."
  • The evening included some Hollywood star power with Aussies Hugh Jackman and Nicole Kidman (Mrs. Keith Urban); and hometown girl Reese Witherspoon. Underwood joked that it was nice to have movie stars there who are all good singers, but she hoped they weren't planning on quitting their day jobs. All three actors are promoting new movies. Jackman and Kidman are in Australia, and Witherspoon is in Four Christmases.
  • Rapper Lil' Wayne -- wearing a Tennessee Titans jersey -- joined Kid Rock on stage for the song "All Summer Long." Apparently he was just along for the ride, though, because he didn't rap or sing. Instead, he stayed in the background most of the time and pretended to play guitar.
  • When Paisley won his award, he ran into the audience towards his wife in the front row -- and then, as a joke, veered left toward Urban and hugged him instead. Then he went back and hugged his wife and knelt down to plant a kiss on her belly. She's expecting their second child.
  • Shania Twain was the "surprise superstar guest" chosen to hand out the entertainer of the year award. She sure surprised Chesney with her cleavage-revealing gown. He seemed to forget where he was for a moment, telling her "you look great." Then he regained his composure and began his acceptance speech.

JUST OUR OPINION

  • It was a good show with some great performances -- Carrie Underwood, Brad Paisley, Reba McIntire and Miranda Lambert were all highlights. But, less is more folks, and there were some performances that we could've done without like The Eagles or Darius Rucker. And how come Rascal Flatts didn't perform?
  • As for style, we loved almost every one of Underwood's seven dresses, but what the heck was Kellie Pickler thinking? The leather minidress and high-heel boots just didn't fit her personality (or the song).
  • What did you think?

  • His favorite first date -- He's self assured if it's a dinner at a cozy French bistro in his nabe. He's sleazy if it's cocktails and all you can eat buffet at the local bar.
  • His good night kiss -- He's self assured if it's a very slow, sensual make out session. He's sleazy if it's a full throttle marathon game of tonsil hockey.
  • His next day text -- He's self assured if it's; "What r u up 2 later? Would love 2 c u." He's assured if it's; "Yo, babe! How bout u + me + my hot tub 2nite?"

Women are in charge!!!!

A new survey reveals women, not men, are more likely to be in charge of major decisions in the household. Gals are more likely to manage the budget by 38% to 30%, while fewer than three in 10 couples make joint decisions about day to day financial decision making. When it comes to making a big ticket purchase for the house, 46% of couples say they make joint decisions, but in families where one spouse takes charge, it's likely to be the female in 30% of households compared to a measly 19% for the males. According to the study by the Pew Research Center, gals have even claimed a slight advantage in who controls the TV remote control. While one fourth of couples say them make joint decisions, the women has her hand on the remote in 27% of households compared to 26% where the guys decide what to watch. When it comes to choosing what to do in the evening, a whopping 46% of couples decide together. But among couples in which one person always takes the lead, it's the lady of the house who calls the shots by 28% vs. 16% for the men. (National Examiner)

Don't touch that REMOTE!

The next time you pick up the TV remote, you might want to go wash your hands afterwards. Cold germs can live up to two days on that TV remote, just waiting to infect everyone it can. Other hotbeds for germs are door knobs and the refrigerator handle. That's the word from virology scientists at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville, who tested surfaces in the homes of people with colds. The study found that commonly touched areas like refrigerator doors and handles were positive about 40% of the time for cold germs.

National Sundae Day

The first ice cream sundae was said to be served by accident way back in 1881. Druggist Edward Berner of Two Rivers, Wisconsin, couldn't serve flavored soda water on the Sabbath so he compromised and put ice cream in a dish and poured the syrup on top. It was called an ice cream Sunday. The spelling was later changed to "sundae."

Good Veterans Day to everyone but most especially to those who have served or lost loved ones in the armed forces! Here is a Billy Ray Cyrus with a tribute to our soldiers and Jamey Johnson for you!

Maybe you really don't want that cup of Joe!

Drinking three cups of coffee a day can make women's breasts shrink, says a new study. And the impact is even worse the more you drink. Researchers at Lund University in Sweden discovered a clear link between coffee consumption and breast size. Scientists say it's down to the effect coffee has on estrogens the female sex hormone. But it's not all bad news. Regular caffeine hits appear to reduce the risk of breast cancer. (Globe)

So you think you have it tough these days?

Tomorrow is Veterans Day. Please take time to say... "Thank you for your service to our Country", to our Vets from World War II, The Korean War, Desert Storm and the War in Iraq!

My Dad is a World War II Vet and almost 90 years old now. he served in the US Army as a Sargent in the military finance department. He was on the beach at Normandy (D plus 30) they called it, meaning 30 days after D day. He said the beach was still gruesome and the Army hadn't moved very far inland yet. His job was to pay the troops their salaries. He said most guys just sent their salary home to their families. Dad spent 4 years serving his country in France and Germany. I have his military picture on my dresser at home and I couldn't be more proud of him! I have never missed a thank you call to him on Veterans Day!

Remember our Vets, we wouldn't enjoy freedom without them!

Happy Veterans Day!

Craig Powers
K-Flag Operations Manager

Thanks Dad!


Tuesday is Veterans Day!

I never miss the chance to thank one of our Veteran's on Veterans Day...Remember to take time on Tuesday to thanks our Vets! One of the first things I do is call my Dad. (Dad was a Sargent in World War II) He was on the beaches of Normandy 30 days after D day. His job was in finance, he was part of the Army's banking system that actually paid and did accounting for the troops. He said, "D day plus 30 was a gruesome site. Many of our troops lost their lives on that day. He spent 2 years overseas in the War and thankfully made it home to become a banker at the Bank of America main branch in Los Angeles where he met my Mother.


So, Thanks to our Vets of World War II, The Korean War, Desert Storm and the Iraq War. We couldn't be Americans without you!

OPRAH WINFREY SHOW COMING TO AN END? Although it was reported that The Oprah Winfrey Show will leave broadcast syndication in 2011, the talk show host isn't cementing any moves. An executive at Discovery, which in conjunction with Winfrey's Harpo is creating the cable network, OWN, said on Friday (November 7th) that Oprah will focus her attention on the new channel when her current contract expires. However, Harpo responded, "While David Zaslav's comments are true that Oprah's current contract to produce The Oprah Winfrey Show will expire in 2011, she has not made a final decision as to whether she will continue her show in syndication beyond that."

  • Take a shower -- You are positive.

What Do You Mean It's Stolen?

Is it possible to get so drunk you don't even know you've stolen a car? Consider the plight of 27-year-old Charles J. Schultz in Fairbanks, Alaska. After being pulled over by a state trooper, Charles told the trooper that he was driving his Chevy Cavalier and everything was fine. That's when the trooper informed him that he was actually behind the wheel of a Ford Escort -- a stolen Ford Escort. And it turns out Charles' blood-alcohol level was .166, more than twice the legal limit. The car had been stolen from the parking lot of a strip club. Charles swore he had no memory of taking the wrong vehicle. But at that blood-alcohol level, it's surprising he remembered his own name. (myway.com)

HOW LOW CAN YOU GO?

Ladies, Cosmopolitan says you're stooping too low if your guy...

  • Borrows money from you -- to take his buddies out for beers.
  • Hits on your friends in front of you.
  • Has an optional policy on deodorant and toothpaste usage.
  • Thinks gene mapping refers to a worldwide Levi's campaign.
  • Only looks good to you in the dark.
  • Laughs like a brain-damaged hyena... at his own jokes.
  • Never calls you before 1am -- and even that's on the early side.
  • Wonders why you, he, and his ex can't all hang out.
  • Believes foreplay must be one of those tiny buttons that you push on a DVD player.

In Touch magazine asked readers, "Which guy has the sexiest body?"

  • Matthew McConaughey, 51% (Jessi's pick too!) Is it warm in here?
  • Jake Gyllenhaal, 39%
  • Lance Armstrong, 10%

National Stress Free Family Holiday Month

The no. 1 cause of holiday stress is spending too much money! That's the word from a recent FranklinCovey survey asking over 15,000 customers what causes them stress during the most wonderful time of the year. 87% admitted that holiday activities do cause stress, while 49% confessed to being relieved when it was all over. Here are the top 10 most stressful holiday activities in ranked order of most stressful to least stressful:

  1. Spending too much money
  2. Creating a specific holiday budget
  3. Deciding what gift to buy for whom
  4. Managing workload to take time off
  5. Not enough time to shop
  6. Not enough time for events
  7. Sending gifts and cards on time
  8. Taking care of physical well-being
  9. Relationships with family, friends and co-workers
  10. Decorating for or hosting a holiday party

"The key to avoiding stress during the holiday season is to create a manageable, written plan for the holidays that includes events, budgeting, shopping, traditions and quality time with friends and family. Make sure your plan allows you and your loved ones to enjoy the holiday season -- your way," said professional organizer Julie Morgenstern, author of "Organizing From the Inside Out." "Without a plan, you can easily go over budget, waste time searching for the perfect gift, and abandon your own well-being. Be prepared before you take on the season."

  • Keep conversations short -- Whether you are a busy corporate attorney, self-employed or even unemployed, you always want to give her the impression that you lead a full, active life.

Their findings are important because CPR can triple cardiac arrest survival rates when properly performed. (Globe)

Top 8 voting myths dispelled

Myth No. 1: I will be turned away from the polls if I wear an Obama or McCain shirt.
NOT TRUE. You can't be turned away from the polls, but you may be asked to cover the parts of your clothing that are advertising your candidate. Certain states -- such as California, District of Columbia, Pennsylvania and New York -- restrict anything that can be considered campaign material within 50 to 150 feet of voting sites. If you've got questions, contact your state election official to find out the exact rules in your state, or, just be sure to bring an extra shirt or sweater for when you place your vote.
Myth No. 2: If something goes wrong -- I'm not on the voter rolls, forgot my ID, recently moved -- I can't vote.
NOT TRUE. You may need to take an oath affirming you're a citizen, and that you live where you say you do. But keep in mind that the burden of proof is on the person making the challenge, not you. If your right to vote is being challenged for any reason, call the Election Protection hotline at 1-866-OUR-VOTE (1-866-687-8683) to get immediate legal advice. You can also request a provisional ballot from poll officials.
Myth No. 3: If I registered to vote through ACORN, my registration is not valid.
NOT TRUE. While some ACORN voter registrations are being investigated, if you provided accurate information, your registration is valid. In case you encounter problems, call the Election Protection hotline at 1-866-OUR-VOTE (1-866-687-8683) or be sure to request a provisional ballot.
Myth No. 4: Absentee ballots don't count and are only used as tie-breakers.
NOT TRUE. Like provisional ballots, absentee ballots count as a regular vote in every state.
Myth No. 5: If you register to vote under your school address, you will be dropped from your parents' health insurance or lose financial aid.
NOT TRUE. In a recent Time Magazine report, officials in Montgomery, Virginia, Greenville, South Carolina, and El Paso, Colorado told students that their health care and financial aid would be in jeopardy if they were to cast a vote. There was just one problem with these warnings: They were entirely untrue. Time reports, "According to youth-voter advocates and the IRS... these dire warnings were incorrect."
Myth No. 6: I can't vote because I recently moved, or the address on my driver's license is different from my current address.
NOT TRUE. The driver's license is strictly used to verify a voter's identity, not place of residence. State law requires that you vote in the precinct in which you live. If you're not sure where your polling location is, visit Vote411.org or Google Maps. If you end up at the wrong location, poll workers can direct you to the correct precinct.
Myth No. 7: If I have any unpaid parking or traffic tickets, warrants, unpaid child support or receive food stamps or welfare, I can't vote.
NOT TRUE. Fliers claiming absurd things like this pop up almost every election year. They weren't true then, and they aren't true now.
Myth No. 8: If I have been convicted of a felony, I can't vote.
MISLEADING. Each state has its own process, but only two states -- Kentucky and Virginia -- deny the right to vote to all ex-offenders. To find the specific laws in each state, check out this short and simple guide (PDF) put together by the Sentencing Project.

THIS WEEK IS National Card & Letter Writing Week

The first week in November. It seems like that you can find a card for almost any occasion, but here are a few cards that you might not ever see:

Heard your wife left you.
How upset you must be.
But don't fret about it.
She moved in with me.

I must admit
You brought Religion in my life.
I never believed in Hell
Until I met you.

As you grow older, Mom
I think of all the gifts you've given me.
Like the need for therapy.

So your daughter's a hooker,
and it spoiled your day.
Look at the bright side,
it's really good pay.

The Right Sandwich Can Solve All Your Problems!

Sandwiches aren't just for lunch anymore. In fact, a new study says a variety of the tasty concoctions are the cure for what ails you. "You can target particular problems with the right combination of ingredients," says Detroit dietician Marcia Grapley. "Whether you want to cut calories or stop a migraine, your choice of sandwich fixings can help achieve your goal while pleasing your taste buds." "But there is one rule you must follow -- no white bread. It's high in sugar and doesn't have the amount of fiber you find in other breads such as wheat, rye or pumpernickel."

  • Grapley suggests tuna salad on rye with low-fat mayo and lettuce and tomato can decrease the frequency and intensity of migraine headaches. "Insomnia is not a problem most of us would think could be helped by a sandwich, but we'd be wrong," says Grapley. "In fact, a slice turkey and cream cheese is guaranteed to help you get the shut-eye you crave."
  • If you suffer from a lack of energy and worry about bone density, pump up the volume with a roast beef and Swiss cheese on rye with mustard. The meat is high in protein while the cheese is filled with calcium -- a one, two punch that's hard to beat.
  • You can rev up your love life with a surefire combination of honey, figs, ricotta cheese and orange slices on wheat bread.
  • Watching your weight and cholesterol levels? Slap together a tasty broiled veggie burger topped with salsa. "One of my favorite combinations for people who want to up their potassium intake is an avocado and roast chicken sandwich," says Grapley. "Chicken is also chocked full of niacin, which boosts your metabolism.
  • Researchers discovered another winning sandwich is sliced apple and peanut butter. Down one of these before you work out. You can even eat your way out of a hangover by eating a toasted chocolate and banana sandwich.
