As I was searching for a photo from the public domain to add to a blog post, I came across a handful of random images that are simple breathtaking. I wanted to share these with you. Which one is your favorite? Read more
Growing up I remember anxiously awaiting the return of the Olympic Games, watching wide-eyed as iconic figures such as Scott Hamilton and Mary Lou Retton took to the ice and uneven bars, respectively. With signature moves and million-dollar smiles, they wowed us with their pure athletic prowess and genuine love for the games. My grandmother and I often watched together on a small black and white TV. We didn’t have high definition, a 50-inch LCD screen or extravagantly produced commercials filling in the gaps. But we didn’t need these things. All we needed – all we wanted – was to see and experience the excitement and competition. Read more
Like millions of people around the world, I have successfully worked from home for many years – since 1998 to be exact. As a remote worker, I believe my efficiency, availability and output far exceeds the vast majority of traditional workers. I’m not plagued by office politics, constant interruptions and distractions or a draining commute. What I am plagued by, however, is the condescending comments often made by those who have either never worked from home or worked from home unsuccessfully. Read more
About a month ago, I became slightly addicted to entering Pinterest contests – specifically Pin-to-Win contests. Out of seven contests, I walked away with one score, a 2nd place win of the Tangled Vacation 2012 contest from Socially Tangled. I was excited and very appreciative, of course, but it left me thinking – what did I do wrong on the others? Read more
The summer Olympics are almost upon us.
In other news, you really can sell snow to a polar bear. Did you hear about this “water-only café” that opened in Manhattan? That’s right. For just $2.50, you can get ridden like…I mean, you can get yourself a one-of-a-kind 16-ounce glass of water. Tap water. Now, don’t get me wrong. This tap water has journeyed through a $20,000 filtration system, making it Queen of all Water. And you can add a bunch of different supplements that sound like they replace The Hair Club for Men, Viagra and penicillin all in a sip. The only requirement? Bring your own container. Yep. Don’t expect to find any red SOLO cups here. But they will do the rest of the work for you. You know, turn the lever on and fill up your cup. All for the bargain price of $2.50. Read more
Why are we so excited about Marissa Mayer?
Am I the only woman on the planet who just doesn’t get the fanfare surrounding Marissa Mayer taking on the role of Yahoo! Inc.’s CEO? Okay – she is a good looking, classy female. She’s well-educated and has had a great run at Google. But from my perspective, she is the wrong person to take the helm at a beaten-down, struggling company – namely Yahoo! Inc. Here’s why: Read more
Nothing beats enjoying a summer evening more than sitting by an outdoor fire relaxing… Hope to have another night like this soon. Read more
I’m headed to the doctor tomorrow to have a suspicious spot on my face checked. Strangely, in just two days a once silent brown “spot” has turned a pearly, pink color and is very sore and itchy. Naturally, I’m worried. And have every reason to be freaking out just a bit. Until two years ago, I worshipped the sun and spent hours upon hours in tanning booths. I started when I was just 15-years-old. Any chance I could get to lie out in the sun or take advantage of a tanning booth, I was there. It wasn’t until I noticed the skin on my arms and legs taking on a leathery appearance that I finally gave up this dangerous addiction – which I do believe it is. Read more
