it only takes a minute....

Please tell your friends to tell their friends today!

The Breast Cancer site is having trouble getting enough people to click on their site daily to meet their quota of donating at least one free mammogram a day to an underprivileged woman.

It takes less than a minute to go to their site and click on 'donating a mammogram' for free (pink window in the middle).

This doesn't cost you a thing. Their corporate sponsors/advertiser s use the number of daily visits to donate mammogram in exchange for advertising.

Chew More, Weigh Less?

Next time you grab a handful of nuts to snack on, count to 40.

A recent study revealed that when people ate a small serving of almonds, 40 chews quelled hunger better than 10 or even 25 crunches of the same amount of nuts. The Magic NumberNot only did the extra chews help curb hunger best, but also the feelings of fullness lasted longest when people gave the nuts the extra chews. And the practice may work with other foods, too, because researchers suspect it may simply be the mere act of chewing that switches on your brain’s satiety center.

Last Week...

So I read the 100 most influencial people edition of Time magazine. Ok, mostly I just skimmed it to see who they deemed most influencial. I mean, does anyone actually read those news mags from cover to cover?
No, really? I'm curious about that. I have tried on occasion, but I just can't. I actually rarely read any magazine like that. In fact, I don't often read entire articles.
At first a headline may spark an interest and after a paragraph or two I no longer care. Sometimes I actually get half through the article before I stop caring, but rarely do I make it to that final period box thing that marks the true end of the article.
Is there such a thing as reading ADD because I might have that?

But I disgress. After skimming the issue of Time I made my own list from theirs (because who has time to actually compile their own). I'm not sure influencial is the right word either. So here is my 2009 most outstanding persons list. These are in no particular order

The Twitter Guys (Jack Dorsey & Biz Stone)
Suze Orman
Jeff Kinney
Tom Hanks
Lauren Zalaznich
Barbara Hogan
Kate Winslet
Tina Fey
Sarah Palin
Chesley B. Sullenberger
Richard Phillips
Jeff Bezos

If you aren't familiar with someone on the list, then you should educated yourself and look them up. I have provided a couple of useful links below:

Church Gossip

Priscilla, the church gossip, and self-appointed monitor of the church's morals, kept sticking her nose into other people's business several members did not approve of her extra curricular activities, but feared her enough to maintain their silence.

She made a mistake, however, when she accused Elmer, a new member, of being an alcoholic after she saw his old pickup parked in front of the town's only bar one afternoon. She emphatically told Elmer (and several others) that everyone seeing it there would know exactly what he was doing!

Elmer, a man of few words, stared at her for a moment and just turned and walked away. He didn't explain, defend, or deny... he said nothing.

Later that evening, Elmer quietly parked his pickup in front of Priscilla's house.....walked home...and left it there all night.You gotta love Elmer.

Here's another funny:

A woman had just returned to her home from an evening of churchservices, when she was startled by an intruder. She caught the man in the act of robbing her home of its valuables and yelled: 'Stop! Acts 2:38!' (Repent and be Baptized, in the name of Jesus Christ, so that your sins may be forgiven.)
The burglar stopped in his tracks. The woman calmly called the police and explained what she had done.
As the officer cuffed the man to take him in, he asked the burglar: 'Why did you just stand there? All the old lady did was yell a scripture to you.''Scripture?' replied the burglar. 'She said she had an Ax and Two 38s!
