Pounds During the Quarantine

By |2020-07-07T07:26:13-05:00July 7th, 2020|

If you've found yourself eating and drinking more during the quarantine and exercising less . . . well, you're in good company. That company is: Pretty much everyone else. According to a new survey, 76% of people say they've gained weight since the quarantine began . . . with some people gaining up to 16 pounds. One of the things making it easier to gain weight is . . . we don't have to wear real pants. About half of people say they've basically only worn sweatpants or yoga pants during the quarantine . . . and 28% can't remember the [...]

Some of the things are big, and some are small things you probably don't think about. Here are some highlights . . . 1. How diverse the country is. Meaning the people, the food, the architecture, AND the geography. We've got everything from cities [...]

Smells Like Outer Space

By |2020-06-30T07:57:09-05:00June 30th, 2020|

Ever wondered what it smells like to be in outer space? Follow-up question: Ever wondered if it would be a TURN ON if YOU smelled like outer space? There's a new fragrance called Eau De Space that literally smells like outer space.

The company that originally made the scent for NASA just launched a Kickstarter, and you can get yourself a little bottle of the stuff for $29. It comes in a cologne [...]

I saw my 2 y/o niece over the weekend, dang if those young kids do everything you do. A special sorry to my sister. Sunscreen is an important accessory when attending outdoor weddings this summer. Aloe is also an appropriate massage oil. Every time I check my pockets for my wallet, keys, and phone, I do 25% of the Macarena. I've noticed this Saturday is 4th of July, Independence Day. for the first time in 15 years, I do not work one single event on the 4th... and I HAVE NO PLANS. Sadly, this is what keeps me up at night. [...]

FDA Warns of Toxic Hand Sanitizers

By |2020-06-23T10:30:58-05:00June 23rd, 2020|

Don't let this scare you away from using hand sanitizer, because it's an important tool for fighting the virus. But the FDA put out a warning this weekend about nine different brands that could actually CAUSE health issues. They're all made by a Mexican company called Eskbiochem. And they contain something called wood methanol that's extremely toxic. It can absorb through your skin and cause nausea, vomiting, headaches, blurred vision, seizures, nerve damage, permanent blindness, and even kill you. So if you've been using any of these brands, STOP immediately and see a doctor. Here are the brand names you need [...]

We really are giving anything and everything a national day, aren't we? National Hydration Day is when you're supposed to remind yourself to drink more water. Especially now that summer's here. A recent survey asked people about their water-drinking habits, and what KIND of water they normally drink at home. So are you a bottled water fan? Or do you still trust the free stuff you get from your tap? Well, filtered water is now the most popular option. Like from a fridge dispenser or a Brita. And tap water is our LEAST favorite. 37% of people said they normally drink [...]

Over the weekend we noticed, again, that meteorologists are not good at their job. People on the bike/walking path are good people. Motorcyclists always wave... to other motorcycles It's time for fireflies - go for a drive at dusk and enjoy. Sports! MoonDogs ready?   Play ball!
