ON THE JOB

Tuesday, October 04, 2011

FIRST JOBS OF FAMOUS PEOPLE
• Steve McQueen was a towel boy in a brothel.

• Danny DeVito was a hairdresser at his sister’s salon.

• Chris Rock was a busboy at a Red Lobster.

• Bill Gates was a page in the Washington state capitol building.

• Michael Jordan was a bellhop.

• Duke Ellington was a peanut vendor at Washington Senators baseball games.

• Walt Disney mashed apples in a jelly factory.

• Stephen King was a high-school janitor.

So, there's hope for me yet, huh? Maybe I can still become a STAR?

A Soothing Soak

Monday, October 03, 2011

Feeling bad after a breakup? Wish your new coworkers had invited you to happy hour? Instead of drowning your sorrows in a tub of Ben & Jerry's, submerge yourself in a different tub altogether.

New research from Yale University shows that raising your body's temperature-say, by relaxing in a steamy bath-can make you feel less isolated. "As infants being held by our mothers, we learned to connect physical warmth with emotional well-being," says study coauthor John Bargh, Ph.D. "So merely feeling something hot against your skin helps you lose that lonely feeling.

HOW TO FIND YOUR HAPPY PLACE

Sunday, October 02, 2011

Stop trying so hard! Setting out to make yourself blissful can backfire.

Women reported experiencing worse moods after reading an article touting the importance of joy and then immediately taking part in a fun activity. Setting higher expectations for happiness can actually lead you to feel less happy. The reason: We feel disappointed when we don't reach our own unrealistic standards.

To avoid that buzzkill, pause to savor little feel good moments - a nuzzle from your dog, a cute text from your guy, a spin through the park on roller skates. Enjoying the activities themselves, rather than because you think they are going to make you happy, is key.

Let it come naturally.

Get a natural glow

Saturday, October 01, 2011

Grapes are more than just a delicious snack. The fruit is also a great natural cleanser, according to Adrienne Luntz, cofounder of Native Remedies, which makes the SkinSave line of products. Simply split a few red grapes in half and rub them across your face for a minute, then rinse. The grapes' pulp contains malic and tartaric acids, which have a gentle exfoliating effect. You'll be amazed by how soft your skin will feel!

For even more antioxidant benefits - grapes are also a source of free-radical-fighting resveratrol-mash a handful in a bowl, apply them to your skin and rinse after 15 minutes. Toast your new radiance with a glass of red wine for a boost from the inside out!!

A broken laser pointer, for $14.83, in September 1995. At the time, eBay was called AuctionWeb.

You've heard the expression - "There's a sucker born every minute"...eBay takes that to the limit!!
