 For those who don't know, I've been visiting the same barber shop for years to get my hair cut because I try to keep it really short.  What you may not know is that all 5 barbers  look like someone from  I asked the owner if it was a requirement to look like that to work there, but he swears that it just worked out that way

If you're lucky enough to get there early in the morning, you'll see them practicing new fitness moves,lifting weights or talking about exercise stuff.  They're always quick to hand me a 10 lb barbell, but I promise that no one wants to unsee a vision of Ms. RO pumping iron.(lol)

If someone gifted you with lots and lots of candy during the holidays, you'll be pleased to know that 12/26 is National Candy Cane Day.  Feel free to re-gift or use them in recipes.  By the way, the candy cane capital of the world is located in Bryan OH, which is home to Spangler Candy Company.

Do you like crossword puzzles?  Every now and then I work on those that are pop-culture related.  Did you know that the very first crossword puzzle was printed in the New York World in 1913? Originally it was called Word Cross, but an error during publishing transposed the letters to what we all know and love as Crossword.

Have you ever been curious about those personality tests?  Here's one you can take to get a FREE analysis of who you are, and you may be quite surprised at the results.  

Come on  - it's just between us, but have you ever taken something from a hotel?  Did you know that theft from hotels can exceed $100 million dollars annually?  If you're caught trying to take that very nice mirror, flat screen television, hair dryer or coffee pot, you may not get locked up, but your name could show up on the "No Stay List", the next time you try to book a hotel.  Still, some people have been arrested, and sometimes the charges are simply added to the bill.   Hotels expect you take all those tiny bottles of shampoo, conditioner and soap, but those very cool, fluffy robes are not giveaways.

Would you rather text than speak on the telephone?  You may be surprised to know that the Philippines is considered the texting capital of the world, sending on average over a billion texts per day!!!!  They're also known as the social media capital of the world because they spend about 4 hours per day on various social media platforms.  Wow!

Speaking of texting - how quickly can you type "
The razor-toothed piranhas of the genera Serrasalmus and Pygocentrus are the most ferocious freshwater fish in the world. In reality they seldom attack a human."?   If you can type this faster than 17 seconds on your cell phone, you'll beat the current Guinness World Record holder, Marcel Fernandes Filho who won when he was 17.  He's held the record since 2014.

Not to be confused with Tom's recent MI rant
Are you a person who's always looking for a high paying job, but don't want to work that hard?  You may be surprised to know that hotels are on the hunt for bed warmers so guests don't have to get into cold beds, and the annual salary can reach up to $200,000.  Hearing aid specialists test hearing and fit customers with hearing aids, and this vocation is on the rise. All you need is a high school diploma and minimal training to get paid close to $60,000 a year!

No, I have no clue who this woman is, but I was intrigued by her job as an Official Lipstick Reader, and thought I'd share her info.  This is a real thing, blogger buds, and she's considered an intuitive psychic.  You can visit her site at  or call 877-605-6389.

8 Cups Vanilla Ice Cream
1/2 Cup Bourbon Whiskey
1 Tablespoon Vanilla Extract
1/2 Teaspoon Ground Cinnamon + additional cinnamon sticks if you like.

In a blender, combine half of the ice cream, bourbon, vanilla and ground cinnamon.  Cover and process until totally smooth, then pour into a punch bowl.  Repeat with the remaining ice cream, bourbon, vanilla and ground cinnamon. Serve garnished with ground cinnamon and cinnamon sticks.  Enjoy all that yumminess!

I'm going to end this post with a conversation I had with someone who's been a friend for 30+ years, and I totally adore, and he told me this.  " We wear our masks all the time - even during sex".  How's that for a conversation starter, Blogger Buds?

Aren't these some fun trees?

What is going on these days, Blogger Buds? I don't know or even remember what in the heck I've been doing, but it sure hasn't been blogging(lol)  I had to end a friendship with someone when he casually mentioned that "he could take my ***t anytime he wanted". I won't bore you with my response or my feelings on verbal abuse when he "apologized" by saying it was just a joke. Ain't nobody got time for that!

Moving on, I should mention that YouTube is perfect for FREE exercising, and I decided to go old school with Jane Fonda and Kendall Hogan from Exercise TV. Without changing any of my eating habits, or giving up my cheeseburgers, managed to lose 19 pounds in just a month. 

I can feel all those congratulatory air pats on my back right now, and I thank you.(lol)  

Here's a secret that's not well known.  You can sell your merchandise on the Walmart website,  AND because they've partnered up with THREDUP you can purchase discounted pre-owned designer clothing  too!  Pre-Owned -

If you're an eBay shopper and want to save even more money, visit, then select your country and do a search for what you want.  You'll find all the listings that no one has bid on, or bids that are ending soon, allowing you to get the best deal possible.

Did you know that I Love Lucy started in 1951 and ended in 1957?  We still enjoy the very funny reruns on some, the Hulu Network, Hallmark Channel,  and MeTV.   My favorite episode was The Candy Factory, and I still laugh at this today.  We know Lucille Ball as being this really funny lady, but she also spent time contributing to the women's movement and was vocal in her support of gay rights. 

Sadly, Lucy and Desi's  only great granddaughter Desiree Anzalone died of stage 4 breast cancer at just 31 in Connecticut on September 27, 2020.  Lucy died of an ruptured abdominal aorta  in 1989 when she was 77,  and Desi died from lung cancer in 1986. 

If you're not taking medication for hypertension, researchers say that eating just one grapefruit each day will cut your food cravings by 45% AND you can get rid of 12 pounds in a year!

Are you that person who's always eager to hook up family members and friends with that "perfect" date, and they dread it when you call?  If so, now you can actually get paid to work with strangers and leave your friends alone!(lol)  Go ahead and apply to be a matchmaker  at

Everybody's taking pictures these days from their phones or cameras, so why not get paid, right?  A great site to try that's super easy is   

Did you know that 4 teams in the NFL franchise have never played in the Super Bowl?  The Detroit Lions, Houston Texans, Cleveland Browns, and the Jacksonville Jaguars have gone into the history books.

Were you aware that Walt Disney dropped out of high school when he was 16 and tried to join the Army.  When they rejected him for being too young, he ended up getting a job as as ambulance driver.

Would you visit Mortimer at Disney World?  Thank Walt's wife, Lillian for changing the name to who we all now know and love as Mickey Mouse.

Potatoes may show up on Idaho license plates, but did you know that they're not native to the state?  Idaho is actually home to 75% of the United State's trout, and having it fried is considered their signature dish.

Get Netflix for FREE by signing up for 15 or 30 days, or if you have T-Mobile, get the Magenta Family Plan and it's included. Then call your best friend or watch some of these programs by yourself to take your mind off everything that's going on in the world right now. Don't forget to unplug when you can.
