Having everyone home all the time means there's a lot more work to do around the house.  A LOT more. According to a new survey, the average woman says she's doing almost twice as much stuff around the house as she was a year ago.  In March of last year, women say they had an average of seven responsibilities at home . . . now it's up to 13. Only one in 10 say their partner is doing as much around the house as they are. (The survey only asked women, so we don't have any data on how men are [...]

There's an entire generation of frat bros who have now grown up and had kids.  And who says they learned nothing in college? There's a 36-year-old guy named Rudy Willingham in Seattle.  His eight-month-old daughter is in the second percentile for weight, and the doctor said she needed to take in more calories before her next appointment. So Rudy came up with an idea to get her to chug more formula . . . by using a BEER BONG. Quote, "[I] gained a ton of weight this way in college, so I figured it could do the same for her." He [...]

Eat Exactly Three Vegetables and Two Fruits a Day

By |2021-03-02T08:21:07-06:00March 2nd, 2021|Categories: Blogs|

A new study on healthy eating just came out.  And here's the part that caught our attention:  When it comes to fruits and vegetables . . . don't overdo it. Researchers followed the eating habits of more than 100,000 people for 30 years.  And the ones who ate at least five servings of fruit and veggies a day lived longer. But they also found that five is the upper limit.  More than that won't hurt, but it also doesn't help. The perfect amount is three vegetables and two servings of fruit a day.  People who ate that combo lived longer than [...]

It's March... official to shovel or not shovel weather. It snows an inch but is 40 tomorrow, what do you do? Monthly goals are great to set for yourself until it's a February and you planned on getting to the gym 30 times in a month. Noticed that March is coming in like a lamb, do we still believe the in like a lamb out like a lion thing? Or is that only something we talk about in elementary school? You would have to win a $5,000,000 jack pot every day for 109 straight years to have a Jeff Bezos level [...]

By |2021-02-26T08:29:31-06:00February 26th, 2021|Categories: Blogs|

Considering the weather we've been through so far this year, any temperature over minus-25 probably feels tropical. A new survey asked people to name the lowest temperature that they believe is warm enough to wear SHORTS outside.

But there are definitely people who go more extreme in both directions. 8% of people say 41 to 50 is shorts weather . . . 6% say they'll wear shorts when it's between 31 and 40 . [...]

The survey also found almost half of Americans have been late to an event or missed it completely because of their car breaking down. The most common things we've missed [...]
