Whenever I meet another guy, I always make sure that my handshake is firm and assertive, just like my dad taught me. Most men were raised to give a firm handshake when meeting someone. A firm handshake means that you're a "man," and that you mean what you say and stand for something. A firm handshake gains immediate respect, while a limp hand places you in a submissive position. Now, a firm handshake may mean more than that.
I LOVE fresh fruits and vegetables, but the Farmer's Market is so much more that that and it's first day to operate this season is THIS Friday (May 16)! Beginning at 8 a.m. you can see the latest additions to the Farmer's Market, which takes place every Friday in the lot at Northwest Second and Sycamore Streets.
I learned how to buckle a seat belt when I was a kid, although many cars didn't have them until I was a teenager. Still, it wasn't required by law for anyone in a vehicle to wear them. Laws didn't begin being passed forcing occupants to wear seats belts until 1984 and that was only for front seats. However, even in the 70s, my parents insisted that I wear my seat belt and that's when, for the most part, I made wearing a seat belt a habit.
Yesterday I posted a blog about a new type of cell phone battery and charging system that could allow us to recharge our phones in thirty seconds. Now, how would you like to have a kill switch on your smartphone in case someone were to steal it? Believe it or not, this is not just a concept, it's a reality. Beginning this July, many smartphones will come equipped with a way for you to "kill" your phone so a thief can't use it!
Jenny and Emily typically set their cell phones on the kitchen counter each evening when going to bed and let them recharge overnight. Why? That's a convenient time to charge them, especially considering it takes an hour or two for the batteries to recharge. When your cell phone is almost completely drained, do find that you have to wait for an hour or two for the battery to recharge? This is a common situation for most people, but this may be changing soon. New technology may be on the way.
We're now in the severe storm season and we have plenty of proof, just take a look at those fourteen states that have had natural disasters lately.

On a day that we're going to the polls to vote, I thought I could put up another type of poll on our website and ask you to vote again! You may have heard me talking about pet peeves yesterday afternoon, but if not, here's the gist of what I was talking about. Imagine your most annoying pet peeve and let's compare to another recent online poll that was taken in March.
