Women's purses. That's right. A new study found that a woman may be carrying around a lot more in her purse than lipstick. To find this, researchers from UK company Initial Washroom Hygiene swabbed women's handbags. They found that one in five purses had sufficient bacteria to pose a risk to human health, and that the dirtiest items found inside the average purse were bottles of hand moisturizer. The hand cream containers were found to house more bacteria than an average toilet seat. Lipstick and mascara containers were also found to contain high levels of bacteria. One expert says, "Handbags come into regular contact with our hands and a variety of surfaces, so the risk of transferring different germs onto them is very high, especially as bags are rarely cleaned." Researchers suggest wiping down purses with antibacterial wipes or gel to prevent cross-contamination. (Daily Mail)

In this day in time, most people are about being productive. Getting up, getting out and getting things done. It's hard for them to sit around and do nothing, they always have to be doing something. Then there are the others, they will take every opportunity to do nothing, lay around, be lazy and relax. Well, I'm the latter. If I can put it off till tomorrow, I will. Procrastination is one of my worse traits.
Recently, I had to cut the grass in my backyard, it was for the first time this Spring. Between my schedule, the weather and my procrastination, the grass had gotten to almost 5' tall and very thick. My riding mower was not functioning and needed repair so, I had no choice but to tackle this task with my push mower. What would normally take 45 minutes to an hour to cut with my push mower, took almost 5 hours over two days.
Most tasks become worse if you don't tackle them immediately. So, it doesn't matter how much you just don't want to, or don't feel like doing something at that time. Take my advice, it's better to just get up and get it done. You will feel better about what you've accomplished plus, you will have truly earned the right to do nothing, because there's nothing to do. Remember, procrastination is not your friend.
7 years total...4 married...1 beautiful step daughter and 2 boys in 2 years...on May 9th 2009 I married my best friend. All I can say is that I've had an incredibly blessed life with him. I am thankful for Joe...and my life would not be complete without him. Thank you for being so good to me. Happy Anniversary, my love!
I just got on board with Netflix (I know, I'm Mr. Late To The Party). One of our favorite shows to watch is the Netflix original series "House Of Cards", the political drama starring Kevin Spacey. I hadn't heard that the congressman he plays is from Upstate South Carolina, so this scene caught me by surprise. It was a good laugh!
I've been on a handful of cruises, all in the past five years, and enjoyed them all. I like that you just get to the port, and the rest of the vacation is pretty much hassle-free. No worrying about directions, accomodations, where to park, where to eat. I even tolerated the one cruise when the seas were rough and people were losing their lunch. It's also great for the kids if you can afford to take them along. If they're old enough, there's plenty for them to do on their own while you chill by the pool or go to a show. You can see different ports and not have to spend hours driving between cool places.
But then a story like the Carnival Triumph comes along. It was headed back to Galveston last Sunday when there was a fire in the engine room. The flames were quickly contained and no one was hurt. But the ship lost power. So quickly, a party ship becomes a quest for just a reasonable level of comfort for 4,000 people. No air conditioning in those tiny cabins, few working toilets, long waits for food. And no way to get away from it. At this writing, they hope to be towed back to port by Thursday.
I know, very few cruises have this kind of trouble. But I do like the idea that if the vacation goes bad, we can get in the car and go home.
Waitress Fired After Posting Receipt Online with Tip Complaint from Pastor
A St. Louis-area Applebee's waitress was fired on Wednesday (January 30th) after she posted a receipt online that had a note from a patron, who turned out to be a pastor, complaining about the automatic 18 percent tip that was added to the bill. The pastor, Alois Bell, found out about it and complained to waitress Chelsea Welch's manager, who fired her. Bell's restaurant bill had the tip automatically added because there were more than eight people in her party. She scratched out the automatic tip and put in a "0" where any additional tip would go, writing, "I give God 10%. Why do you get 18?" Welch took a photo of the bill from a fellow server and posted it on the website Reddit. She told Consumerist.com, "I think the note was insulting, but also comical. And I thought other users would find it entertaining." But Bell got wind of it and complained, saying it had ruined her reputation. She told The Smoking Gun website, "[It was] a lapse in my character and judgment. . . . I've brought embarrassment to my church and ministry." Applebee's said it apologized to Bell for violating her right to privacy. But Welch told Yahoo! News, "I had no intention of starting a witch hunt or hurting anyone. I just wanted to share a picture I found interesting." She also doesn't buy that Bell's embarrassed, saying, "If this person wrote the note, obviously they wanted it seen by someone."
COUPLE RESCUE BABY DEER; FACE CHARGES: A couple in Connersville, Indiana who rescued an injured fawn said they could face jail time for the good deed. Jeff and Jennifer Counceller said they brought the injured baby deer -- dubbed Little Orphan Dani -- home and treated her wounds, then nursed her back to health for nearly two years. One day someone from the Indiana Department of Natural Resources came by and told them the state wanted to euthanize the deer because she was a threat to humans. Councellor explained, "I was devastated. I spent a year and several months nursing her into adulthood, getting to the point where she was able to go out on her own." The day Dani was scheduled to be euthanized she escaped from the Counceller home. The couple could face misdemeanor charges for unlawful possession of a deer which might mean jail time and/or fines up to $2,000. The Councellors maintain that they did the right thing, no matter what the law states. (UPI)
