On the the first day of legal cannabis sales across Canada, a 9 year old girl, Elina Childs, set up outside a marijuana shop to take advantage of the foot traffic.   The girl sold all 30 boxes of cookies she brought in under 45 minutes. "It amazed me how quickly they went," Elina's Father said. "Even people in cars driving on the avenue there would stop and roll down their window and ask for cookies." He said the experience was educational for Elina.   Nothing like selling t...

Waking up in the dark is my first sign that the seasons are changing. I'm not a big fan. It just seems natural that we should wake up with the sun. Light tells your body it's time to wake up.   To combat that there are daylight simulation alarm clocks that begin with a soft glow and ramp up to full brightness by your wake-up time. Imitating a sunrise in your bedroom can either positively affect the way your body responds to waking up or a royal pain in the butt.   I rarely us...

Waking up this morning I caught myself getting "up to speed" by checking my email and responding to some, looking at the weather, monitoring websites, etc.   It struck me how fast the pace of business and life has become. Activities for children are scheduled and parents race to keep them on time. In business, at any point during the say I'm answering one of my emails, getting on a conference call, writing copy among other tasks all at the same time. Everybody wants everythin...

Four years ago we needed a new refrigerator. After researching them, reading countless reviews and consulting Consumer Reports. I decided on a Samsung french door. This beautiful looking appliance (pictured here) worked well until about a year ago. It started making really loud grinding noises and the entire unit stopped keeping things cold.   Since I bought the service contract, I had the store's repair service come in and fix it. Those repairs only took 3 weeks for parts, s...

I recently learned that our infamous government agency, FEMA, had coined the term "Waffle House Index" to measure the effect of a natural disaster on an area. If a Waffle House shuts down or limits its menu after such hazards, federal officials conclude the community took a major hit. The Southern breakfast chain, which is open 24 hours a day all year, activates their storm center when a natural disaster or event is impending. Waffle House restaurants are known for staying o...

I wasn't in China but this is a true story...A Chinese village was left with a giant mass of soap suds when a person cleaning plastic bottles let too much soap go down a drain.                               This is from the Nanning City area of the Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region   Locals reported that a villager was cleaning some plastic bottles and allowed a large amount of soap to go down the drain. The soap started to bubble when rain fell into the drainage area and st...

For some reason my Grandma used to say that as soon as she awoke on the first day of each month. It was her "superstition" as Fred talked about yesterday or a special prayer. I have no idea but she used to say it...so I do too (when I remember:-)   What do you think it might mean? Lot's of meat to eat?   That reminds me of the first time I ordered rabbit at a restaurant. It was a very fancy French one in NYC. Tasted like chicken :-)   Happy September 1st!...

A New York woman fooled dozens of guys who thought they were going on a Tinder date.   A huge crowd of men looking for love gathered in Manhattan’s Union Square last Saturday for a chance to date Natasha Aponte. But when they showed up, she told them they'd be battling it out to win her affections.   She began eliminating the guys left and right like on the dating app, saying she was “swiping” right or left on them to their faces.   Those left standing were even told to show ...

There's a new trend called “Snapchat dysmorphia,” where people are seeking out cosmetic surgery to look like the filtered and edited version of themselves shared on social media platforms like Snapchat.   If you're unfamiliar with Snapchat, you can easily make your face thinner, eyes bigger, nose smaller, etc. What's happening is that plastic surgeons are noticing that more and more patients are coming into their offices in hopes of appearing like a filtered version of themse...
