TIPS, TRIVIA & STUFF


So I noticed that I had 4 brand new never been opened 500 and 1000 piece jigsaw puzzles  sitting around, so I decided to put them on eBay, and bingo - they were all gone before I knew it!  I'm sure this happened because more people were sitting at home and looking for things to do. By the way, if you want to keep your noodle on point, try working on puzzles online for FREE at www.mindgames.com. My favorite is scramble words, but there are several types to choose from.  Be prepared - it can be quite addictive.


If you want to play some cool board games instead, Taboo will really have you screaming with laughter as you try to figure what NOT to say to win the game.


Other than working on a few projects, I still have time to watch Netflix.  If you want some suggestions, check out Miracle in Cell #7, Unorthodox, Extraction, The Willoughbys, Trolls World Tour and Never Have I Ever.  You'll be laughing, blubbering, clapping and dancing before it's all over.  If you want to try Netflix FREE for 30 days, visit  https://www.netflix.com/signup .    You'll need to provide a credit card# but they'll remind you BEFORE the expiration so you have time to cancel.

Speaking of Netflix, I am SO guilty of doing all of these. (lol) According to a survey from The American Academy of Sleep Medicine, we're doing everything else except sleeping.

Those between the ages of 18 - 44  are part of the 95% of people who are staying up late to binge watch something on television, and those older than that make up 88%. 

 When it comes to finishing a book, 71% of American women are burning the midnight oil and 75% of men will stay up at night to watch a sports event.



New Jersey is considered the diner capital of the world and has about 525 of them in the state.  It also has the most shopping malls within a 25 mile area.

Speaking of food, you may be surprised to know that North Carolina has lots and lots of sweet potatoes.  So many in fact that they produce more of them than the other 49 states across America combined!

Something about Iowa is very popular to pigs because as of 2019 there were almost 24 million of them living there.  As the largest pork producer in the US, there are only a little over 3 million people who live in the state, much less than the little piggies running around!

Did you know that in the state of Alaska there are over 3 million lakes?!  
Iliamna Lake is the largest lake there and the third largest in the United States. 

Also, no matter where you live in Alaska, be prepared for some sort of bear sighting. A little over 100,000 black bears live there along with 30,000 grizzlies.  They may look cute and cuddly but grizzly bears are very dangerous and more likely to attack versus black bears who can often just be scared away with loud noises, yelling or banging on objects loudly.  Whatever you do, and as much as you may be tempted - don't run!  In fact, grizzlies are so dangerous that they have been known to even attack black bears.  YIKES!

If you get along really well with your significant other and don't mind working together for at least 5 days a week, this site is for you.  I check it out periodically because it's amazing to see some of the places you can live with FREE accomodation, a salary and other unexpected perks. One job offers a salary + a 3 bedroom and 2 bath apartment!  But they only want a duo, hence the name
www.workingcouples.com. There are jobs in apartment complexes, assisted living facilities, resorts and hotels all around the world.

  1. I'm not surprised about the jigsaw puzzles selling so quickly. I was trying to find some right after our lockdown started and it took me a couple of weeks of looking everywhere online to finally find one I liked that was priced reasonably.

  5. Groupon has a deal where you can send in a picture and a company will make a puzzle out of it. I ordered one last month... still waiting for it. Hope it wasn't delivered elsewhere and some other person is putting together my picture. (No, not of ME...)

    2. End note: The puzzle came this week... it came already assembled, no box or picture, and a couple of pieces had the chips in the image. Not impressed.

  8. I've got a 1,000-piece puzzle going right now. It's an Escher drawing, all shades of grey and no color, so it's pretty challenging.

    I guess I must be secretly a woman because I never stay up late to watch sports (I'm not interested in sports, plus I don't have a TV), but often to finish a book.

    Joni Ernst has clearly not been doing her job if the pigs in Iowa are breeding that much.

    Three million lakes in Alaska works out to about four lakes per square mile (and 23 lakes per bear). If a grizzly bear were to chase me, it would probably fall into a lake before it caught me.

    Those apartment manager jobs sound pretty cool, except that you have to deal with all the clogged toilets, neighbor noise complaints, etc.

    That blogging cat seems quite intent on his work!

    Replies
    1. That sounds pretty nique. Once you put it all together, I'd love to see a pic. I worked with this guy many years ago who was an expert with puzzles. He could look at a piece and know exactly where it went, while I was picking up a zillion pieces trying to get them to fit.(lol) Lots of people are not interested in sports and haven't even noticed no football, baseball, tennis or boxing, so you're not alone. LOL to the pigs! That's some good math, and an even better observation of what would happen to the bears.(lol) I agree, the jobs sound cool, especially those in a resort area, but there is definitely lots of work to be done too. That cat is secretly me(lol) Air Hugs, RO

  9. How sad for your friend and fellow blogger's husband. When you learn of how to donate other than on Facebook, please let me (and others who are interested) know.

    It's too bad the people of Iowa have so many pigs. They also have several pork processing plants that Trump mandated MUST stay open, even though there was no virus testing of the plant(s) employees. People were and still are literally dying from this mandate so carnivores can have their sausages and pork chops. It's not the poor pigs fault, but the fault of the greedy pork plant managers who refuse to test their employees, but tell them if they miss work, they are fired.

    Sorry, off my soap box, dear.

    1. When I first heard about it, I actually had to do a few doubletakes to ensure I wasn't losing my mind. You hear about things like this on tv and in movies, but when it happens to someone you know, it truly hurts. I thought that was a truly interesting bit of trivia and quite shocking. I'm always cool with soapboxes(lol) and thank you. Hope you are feeling well my friend. Air Hugs, RO

  10. I do love reading your informative and often funny posts. I love the facts about Alaska- its on the list of places to see, but I'll be sure to avoid the bear population. :) Couples working together could get interesting. LOL

  13. "...those older than that make up 88%." And then the article says that we lose sleep. Well, the article doesn't take into account that I'm retired and I can sleep as late as I want. So, take that article. I still get 8 hours.

  14. My family does family movie night every Saturday with no phones or iPads. We watched Extraction and enjoyed it and have been trying new shows on Netflix too. We have lots of free time to watch TV lately. Reading however has been a pen issue for me. Just can’t seem to concentrate and have become more picky with what I read. I’ve been trying to talk my husband into moving to Alaska for the past couple of years. It’s so beautiful there minus all the bears though. Hope you and your family are doing well!

    1. What a great idea to unplug and do family time, and I loved Extraction too. I've been watching a mix of different shows on Netflix too, and include a few reality shows and documentaries. Definitely something for everyone. I've still been keeping up on my reading, a little because I had a heavy volume of books from the library that has been closed. So it forced me to read what I have, instead of adding more and more to the pile.(lol) Can you please pack me in your suitcase should you head to Alaska?(lol) Sending lots of air hugs,RO

  15. Fun post, except for the new about your friend's husband, that's very sad. I hope all goes well. And so many bears in Alaska - we get excited here when we see a fox or a wild boar!

  24. I've sold about 20 jigsaws in the last couple of months. All used. I do them first, then sell them. They are slowing down now as lockdown is easing slightly here in the UK.

  31. Very sorry to read about Mary's husband :-(

    I sometimes would like to do voice overs. Love a good diner too. Been forever since I've been in a Jersey diner. Those were the best. Hubby and I have diner plates, just like they do. So fun.

    Love the 30 days free of NetFlix. We did that back in the day. Since though, we have gotten rid of Netflix, Hulu and Prime video as we work on getting out of debt. Feels good. Though Netflix was the last we said goodbye to and at first, it was weird but now it feels normal. If that makes sense.

  39. It sure seems to be a good time for doing puzzles, I am working on a 1000 puzzle myself at the moment. That's nice you managed to sell yours so fast.

    I didn't realize there were so many bears in Alaska. I wouldn't want to encounter one of those.

    I hope Mary can get enough money to help with her husbands travel for his cancer treatment. That's so nice you shared her fundraiser on your blog!

    1. It can be relaxing I've heard, and kudos to you for relaxing some, because I know you have a lot of stuff going on. I agree, bears appear to love being in Alaska for sure Lola.(lol) I agree. I just can't imagine what they are both going through right now, but I hope the added stress of not having transportation is removed. Sending lots of air hugs your way. RO

  40. Have you watched Blacklist yet on Netflix's? We are so hooked. It both appeals and appalls:) I love James Spader. When I'm not hiding my eyes at the violence, I'm laughing hysterically.

    1. Like you, I've been hooked for years, and am glued to the tv every Friday night when it was on. They did the final episode of this season in a cartoon format due to COVID-19 virus because they couldn't film together. I want a friend like Reddington, please.(lol) And yes, you are right, James Spader is awesome in the roll. Air Hugs, RO

  42. I love jigsaw puzzles. They seem childish and yet, I really like putting them together but sadly, I can never found one with pieces larger than 1,000.

    Why wouldn't you run if you see a bear? I would and how could you not? I'm glad I don't live in Alaska.

    Have a lovely day.

  43. As you know, I watch a lot of reality tv shows and so many of them are doing COVID specials. Lots and lots of people are really getting into puzzles and I think that is so cool. My mom was so good at them. Even as dementia crept in, we brought her puzzles to stimulate her brain.

    I'm so sorry to hear about Mary's husband. I'm sending lots of love and positive vibes their way.
