Is an In-Person Family Gathering Worth the Risk?

By |2020-11-24T07:33:48-06:00November 24th, 2020|

At this point, you've heard all the warnings about getting together with your family for the holidays.  And you've seen what's happening all around the country.  So . . . are the risks worth it?

Most Popular Thanksgiving Pie in Every State

By |2020-11-23T08:13:23-06:00November 23rd, 2020|

A new study found the most popular Thanksgiving pie in every state.  And this is such a landslide that no amount of press conferences at landscaping companies next to sex toy shops could make people question it. The jobs website Zippia analyzed Google Trends data from last November to figure out what pies people in every state were baking or buying the most. And this isn't surprising . . . but pumpkin pie won 42 out of the 50 states. Pecan won five states, all in the South.  Apple pie won the other three states, all in the Northeast. There were [...]

Things I’ve Noticed

By |2020-11-23T07:29:21-06:00November 23rd, 2020|

Stores were packed over the weekend and spirits are up! People seemed to be in a good mood. Every year they warn about frying your turkey, and every year I look forward to watching the diasters on instagram. When I get really set on an idea, it's hard to knock me off it. To the point where I get really annoying when it doesn't happen... I feel bad for people who deal with me. I noticed another reason to get a puppy this weekend. Sunday morning I woke up and was like, I should go for a walk, but I quickly [...]

Things I’ve Noticed

The mall is starting to get nuts, tis the season of angry people standing in line. I played a lumberjack all weekend, I cut down Christmas Trees on Saturday and help clean up a buddy's line of trees on Sunday. Sooo I noticed I skipped the gym... In a non-service area for cell phones on Saturday really helps you clear your head. And only think about what's important, I don't think I've ever thought about pizza so much in my life. I noticed I was busy all weekend and that it made the weekend really slow down. Cases are sky rocketing, [...]

What Your Steering Wheel Grip Says About Your Personality

By |2020-11-09T10:53:09-06:00November 9th, 2020|

If someone drives like an idiot, I assume they're an idiot in general.  But I don't know how fair or accurate THIS might be . . . A "personality expert" online claims you can tell how a person acts just by how they grip their steering wheel.  Here are seven driving styles, and what they mean . . . 1.  "10 and 2."  That's the classic way you might have learned as a teenager.  If you still do it now, it means you play by the rules.  And you might also be a perfectionist. 2.  "9 and 3."  So on the [...]
