Debunking Those Rules of Health Myths

For how many years have we been following ideas we thought were "healthy?"  It seems that every so often, some new piece of information comes out to tell us all what we should be doing to stay healthy.  Then later we find out that what we thought was truth is fabrication.  For example, how long have we heard that sugar makes children hyper?  The idea spread like wildfire, but it's not true.

Plants and Poisons are Pet Dangers Lurking in Your Yard

As the weather gets better and the temperature warms up, the urge within us to spend more time outside grows stronger.  We're not the only creatures that will spend more time outside.  Our dogs will, too.  So we all should keep our canine friends in mind as we begin to decorate the yard this springtime with a few more plants.  It's not just the plants that may cause pet problems, it's also the "stuff" that helps the plants grow that can be dangerous to your dog.

Lasagna Minis Recipe Makes the Same Old Lasagna More Fun to Eat!

Lasagna is one of my favorite dishes and I could eat it every day, but lasagna looks like lasagna and it doesn't have "fun" attached to it's appearance.  Jenny decided to disprove that notion by making lasagna minis.  Okay, they still looked like lasagna, but they were kind of cute, I guess.  They tasted good, too, just like regular lasagna, but they looked like, as Elliot described them, "Meat cupcakes."  Hmmm.  Here's how to fix them...

My Pet Peeve is the Pothole Problem in Evansville, Vanderburgh and Warrick Counties

Okay...I've hit enough potholes lately to scrape off half my tire treads, wear out my shocks and throw my wheels out of alignment - enough already!  I'm getting quite peeved about the potholes I have to dodge every day as I drive to work and home again.  I'm glad to know that the pothole patrols are getting out to the streets and I have to tell you, they can't get these dang blasted potholes filled soon enough!

Getting Ripped-Off at the Supermarket

We can all expect to pay more for convenience, but sometimes what we pay far exceeds the value of the convenience.  There's no better place to see this happening than at your local supermarket.  Most of the time, the rip-offs have something directly to do with the way products are packaged.  I've seen them with my own eyes and have fallen victim to them, just like you.  Let me give you some things to think about so that the next time you're shopping, you can reflect on the money you're probably wasting.

Pigging Out on Pork will Pick Your Pocket

A couple of weeks ago, I wrote about why gas prices are going up and how that would be hitting everyone’s wallet.  Now, the cost of men’s favorite meat in the world(!) will be rising, as well.  Ask any man what his favorite meat is, and he’ll most likely answer “pork,” or as I like to refer to it, “piggy meat.”  Sure I love a good steak, but pork and its various forms have a special place on the menu, especially for guys.  Due to a swine virus, prices will be going up for pork. Noooooo!

Spring Forward Saturday Night for Daylight Savings Time [Poll]

It's that time again (tick, tock, tick, tock) when we "spring forward" for daylight savings time!  Saturday night before you go to bed, move all the clocks ahead one hour so that you're not running behind all day Sunday.  Of course, there's bound to be at least one clock that you'll forget to change, which you'll notice in the morning and then panic over before you realize that you forgot to reset it - LOL!  So how did all this nonsense begin, anyway?

Food’s “Sell By” Date Isn’t the Same as the Throw Away Date

Jenny and I are always very cautious when it comes to eating leftovers or food if its "sell by" date has passed.  Why take the chance of getting sick, right?  Just the other day I discovered yogurt in the refrigerator that had "expired" according to the date on the box.  Even though the yogurt was "unsafe," I ate one anyway and found out that it was just fine.  So is the date on the box or bottle the absolute "do not eat" date?  For the most part, it's not.  Consider this...
