So You Believe You Know the Current News…

  Ok, so you sit down to watch the news, or read the news.  And suddenly you realize that it is all the same no matter where you look.  But is it?  Are you looking everywhere, for real everywhere that you can think of?  I bet not; what do you really know about the country you live in?  Maybe even the country you were born and raised in and your fathers’ father was born here too. Let’s Rewind First! But let’s backtrack to when I was a kid.  You know, about a million years ago, known as the seventies.    There were four stations on tv when I was a kid.  ABC, NBC, CBS & PBS.  We lived in a small town of about 3000 people (that might be stretching it).  There was a newspaper, but most people opted for the Peoria Journal Star or the Chicago Tribune.  Yes, I grew up in central Illinois. When I was a kid, I thought that what was on the news and in the news was reasonably reliable.  From what I have seen and researched, depending on where you read, from 60-85% of American adults say their

Where is Sports & America going in My Opinion

  Where is Sports & America going in My Opinion Wow has sports changed in the last year!   Really think about it just about six months ago I was writing about how sports had gone into the “bubble” and how some sports had come to a stop.   We were season ticket holders for the Arizona Diamondbacks and enjoyed it.   Right up until Covid hit. Everything Stopped… Then baseball stopped, the NBA stopped the play-offs, and the entire sports world just went a bit crazy in my opinion.   The NBA came back and finished their season, football kind of played a season, it seemed as if there were a lot of game changes, fines, and cancellations because of covid.   Even golf was affected, think about that, a nearly zero contact sport, affected by covid.   Eleven major events, I believe were cancelled and all four majors were either cancelled or delayed because of it.   I know the Phoenix Open, wasn’t open in 2020, I for one missed it.   So everyone seems to believe that for the most part, t

Do you ever get tired of being Serious? (National Days we can all laugh about)

  Do you ever get tired of being Serious? (National Days we can all laugh about) I was looking for something different, something new to talk about, write about, maybe something about how to laugh more.   As I browsed the news, I saw Covid, Politics, Sports, Courts and Controversy.   But something else kept popping up along with all the truly serious crap.   Yes, I said it like that, but don’t you get tired of reading, hearing, watching all the serious things in life?   I figure people must, otherwise sitcoms would not be so popular. So as I researched something new and different than the same old thing, while I had some good classic rock in my headphones, I kept seeing “National Day”.   The reason that I put it that particular way, is every day is not just one “National Day”.   It is, as I seem to like saying lately a “butt-ton” of different “days all on the same day.   Because Everything, every cause, everyone, needs a day.   And with only 365 days in a year, well you get it, r
  Great Reasons You Should be Working from Home! June 15, 2020  Janet    2 Comments   So, here you are ~  looking for great reasons to be working from home.  Full time, part time, whatever the situation is, and you are not sure if it is great or bad to work from home.  This is what I have found out about working from home by asking questions, doing research and of course my own experience.  Back when I was in the hospitality business as a District Manager, I had a home office where I worked from home regularly. Here are the great reasons to be working from home!  And that is where I was working from home about 2-3 hours a day, 5 days a week (after working in my locations for 10+hours). Plus, I worked my 6 th  day and sometimes my 7 th  day of every week in my home office catching up paperwork, having meetings with uplines and downlines via video conferencing.  Well now I work from home, for the last 8+ years.  I do have experience and know a lot of the ins and outs of what it t
