Is Less Sleep Better?

It seems like the need for 8 hours of sleep has been drilled into our heads our entire lives, but that recommended amount of sleep for adults may be changing.

Is it possible that 8 isn't great?

What If We Had A 3-Day Work Week?

This story may not have quite the impact if it was coming from a video-game-playing dude in his twenties who spent most of his time on the couch eating chips.

But it's coming from a guy with big ambitions who heads a multi-billion dollar company, and is the second-richest person in the world behind Bill Gates.

Carlos Slim is saying we should only be working three days out of the week.  Great!  Now what's the catch?

Stress Can Make You Gain 11 Pounds Per Year

Something tells me us gals worry more about stress-eating than you fellas do.  If we get fat, we have something to blame it on!

Since stress-eating usually involves comfort foods like pizza, cheeseburgers, and chocolate cake, that packs on about a pound a month and eleven pounds per year those experts say.

I was a fat kid and part of my stress now involves worrying about being fat again, so this bit of news makes me feel like the problem is compounded.  Stress makes me want to starve and eat at the same time!

It's not just the foods themselves that cause the weight gain.  There could be something else going on with stress that makes us add the LB's.

I Think I Have Tech-Elbow

 

Does anyone else's elbow hurt?

Mine started hurting a few weeks ago and I passed it off as a freak injury that probably happened when I was picking up the 2-year old to give her a smooch and she wiggled free and twisted my funny bone.  But it won't go away and it's getting worse and I made a huge mistake in Googling my symptoms.

Just say no to medical Googling!  It's always a can of worms better left sealed up because it always comes back with horrible possibilities and then tells us to go to the doctor.  Maybe we should start with the doctor.  But I'm pretty sure he will tell me I have 90-degree-computer-and-smart-phone elbow.  You too?

‘Thigh Gap Therapy’ Comes To Texas

It's bathing suit season, and it's time to put on the bikini and be full of confidence right ladies?  Whatever!  Most of us gals worry about how we look in a bathing suit, and if we act like we don't care, deep down inside somewhere we probably do.  We want to feel confident!

There's a place in Dallas that's doing what's called "Thigh Gap Therapy," where part of the inner thigh is zapped with a laser to create more daylight there.  A Dallas TV station documented one woman's experience with it, and she said even though she works out and eats healthy, she still has an issue with her thighs.

Guys, what if your gal wanted the laser therapy?

The Bees Are Coming

One spring day a few years back I walked out into my back yard and heard a buzzing sound loud enough to be a small saw, and I looked up into my arbor and noticed an enormous bee hive hanging down from the rafters.  I had never seen so many bees in my life!  Small ones, one on top of the other, all layered to form the hive.  I don't know how bees don't get claustrophobic living like that, but the bee keeper told me they're happy like that, crawling all over one another around the queen.

Carpenter bees are coming to East Texas, and if you're not already seeing them you will be soon.
