I promise. The first one isn't a reminder to exercise.
Naw. Actually one of the best things you can do for your health is to get a good night's sleep. Even the eggheads will say in studies of humans and other animals, they have discovered that sleep plays a critical role in immune function, metabolism, memory, learning, and other vital functions.
So there you have it. Get a good night sleep. The other suggestion. Eat green vegetables. They're healthy and look how much this child enjoys them.
When you think of driving songs, you think of things like Steppenwolf's "Born To Be Wild," Commander Cody's "Hot Rod Lincoln," or Golden Earring's "Radar Love." Right?
They all have a driving theme to them.
That's not exactly the case in a new Top 25 list from Paste Magazine, who not only chooses good driving songs, but takes it another step and says when and where they are good for driving. Rather specific isn't it?
The number one song? The Beach Boys "Wouldn't It Be Nice." Picked #1 for driving to work while sipping the morning coffee.
Also on the list: Otis Redding's (Sittin' on) The Dock Of The Bay. They say it's good for driving at any time. I'd say anytime or anyplace.
Quick, all-in-one dish that will make feeding the fam on a weeknight a breeze!
1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into thin strips
1/4 cup butter, cubed
1-1/2 cups uncooked long grain rice
5 medium carrots, slived
1 medium onion, chopped
1/2 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
1/4 cup chopped sweet red pepper
4 cups chicken broth
2 tbsp minced fresh parsley
Salt and pepper to taste
In a large skillet, brown chicken in butter until no longer pink. Remove and keep warm (I wrap the chicken in a tinfoil pocket). In the same skillet, add the rice, carrots, onion, mushrooms and red pepper. Cook and stir until the rice is browned and onion is tender.
Stir in broth. Place the chicken over rice mixture. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 20-25 minutes or until rice is tender. Stir in parsley. Let stand for 5 minutes before serving.
I do recall studying a whole semester in college about the vast importance of successful communication. It basically came down to the fact that if the other person doesn't understand what you're trying to say, you've failed. it's a key component in almost everything we do from ordering off the menu to negotiating your work contract.
All that time studying, and all I could have done was look at this video of a talking sheep. It not only shows effective communication, but also inflection, tone and appropriate response. That at the sheep makes a really funny noise.
Love vanilla, love cake. So, vanilla cake? Oh yeah!!
1 cup shortening
2 cups sugar
2 tbsp vanilla extract
3 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 cup buttermilk
For the drizzle topping:
1 cup confectioners' sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 to 2 tbsp milk
In a large bowl, cream shortening and sugar until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each. Beat in vanilla. Combine the flour, baking powder and baking soda; add to the creamy mixture alternately with buttermilk, again beating well after each addition.
Pour into a greased and floured 10-in. fluted tube pan. Bake at 350 for 55-65 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack to cool completely.
Combine the confectioners' sugar, vanilla and enough milk to achieve desired consistency; drizzle over cake.
I would really be freaked out if my parents were spying on my Facebook page. Then again, I'm a grown adult, and that would be weird anyway.
Some new research says it's not that uncommon though. AVG Technologies says they asked parents of kids 14 to 17 in eleven different countries about thier snooping habits.
They found that 60 percent of U.S. parents of teenagers seem okay looking in their kids' social accounts without their knowledge. And moms are most likely to be the ones doing the spying. Globally, only 44 percent of all parents said they spy on their teens' Facebook accounts.
Spying, trolling or whatever you want to call it. Do you think it's right?
I'd say as long as the parent isn't hacking into their kids account, I don't think checking someone elses Facebook page is much of a crime. That's what Facebook is for anyway,.
