Comments Off on Some influential women | Posted by Lee on August 25, 2011

Don’t know whether you’ve seen this but I found it really facinating…Forbes magazine has released its annual list of the world’s 100 most powerful women and coming in at number one is German Chancellor Angela Merkel followed by U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Cinton, Brazillian President Dilma Rousseff, PepsiCo CEO Indra Nooyi and Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg.  You’ll find this interesting…Lady GaGa was 11th, Beyonce was 18th and Oprah Winfrey slipped a little this year to number 14th. …Stacie Bartro should be somewhere on that list…:)….talk with you later….Lee

Comments Off on Two and a Half Men | Posted by Lee on August 23, 2011

I have on occasions watched the show Two and a Half Men…and now that Charlie Sheen is no longer a part of the cast..a website called PopEater.com is reporting that producers of the show are trying to get Charlie Sheen’s ex-wife Denise Richards to appear on the sitcom’s season premiere.  Now, isn’t that a new twist but Denise has not responded to any of these reports.  If you watch this show, CBS president Leslie Moonves says he has high expectations for Ashton Kutcher’s debut episode next month.  I guess I’ll tune in to see what all the changes are about…talk with you later…Lee

Comments Off on Response Overload | Posted by Lee on August 18, 2011

The other day, I really received a ton of responses to something I said on my Facebook..and it was that Casey Anthony’s parents will appear on the season premier of The Dr. Phil TV show next month on September 12th.  The show will center around the public scrutiny the Anthonys have faced after their daughter Casey was acquitted last month of killing her two year old daughter Caylee in 2008.  The show is not paying the Anthonys for the interview but was asked to donate to Caylee’s Fund, a charity organization they started to advocate for the rights of grandparents of missing children. We’ll be watching this show for sure…talk with you later…Lee

Comments Off on How to be happy | Posted by Lee on August 15, 2011

I was reading an article recently by Phillip Humbert and he was talking about happiness and how good it is for us both mentally and physically so let me share 4 of his suggestions for a happy life.  Number One…Take happiness seriously.  It is a goal, a skill and a result of living a life consistant with your values.  Number Two…Notice what makes you happy and do more of it.  Number Three…Be happy today.  Don’t let happiness depend on “what happens”.   Its a do it yourself project. and Number Four..Invest in happiness.  Laugh every day, be kind and do something nice for someone, learn something new, dream big and dream often…..There you go…Try it and I will too….Talk with you later…Lee

Comments Off on Two and a Half Men | Posted by Lee on August 8, 2011

I’ve gotten some interesting comments about a post on our Magic facebook page about the upcoming season of Two and a Half Men….with Charlie Sheen gone and Ashton Kutcher coming on board. The question was …will you be watching this season which will be the 9th?  Most of the respondents said that they would be watching  just out of curiosity to see if the new show peeks their interest.  The same holds true for me…I did watch it from time to time…talk with you later…Lee

Comments Off on I-85 woes | Posted by Lee on August 2, 2011

What is it with I-85 in the upstate of South Carolina…There seems to be one accident after another and the lastest was very tragic with 3 people dying in a huge collision on Saturday which closed the highway in Anderson county for hours.  I had gone to Atlanta early Saturday morning to see my sister before the wreck and when I began my trip back home I had no idea the interstate was closed and had been for some time…no stations in Atlanta ever mentioned it . So to make a long story short…I was stuck in a traffic backup that was unbelievable and finally was able to get into Anderson and then onto a backroad to Greenville.  Its experiences like this that makes you want to stay at home and never drive I-85…please be careful if you have to travel on this interstate…its only going to get worse…take care….Lee

Comments Off on OK with me | Posted by Lee on July 21, 2011

As mail volume continues to fall in the internet age and losses continue to rise for the Postal Service, the Postmaster General is warning that Saturday mail delivery may soon be gone and we may only get mail 3 days a week within 15 years.  Think about this…just eliminating Saturday delivery would save an estimated 3 billion dollars for the Postal Service…I really don’t mind that move since my bills are now paid through automatic withdrawal and all the mail I get now is just junk…..Do you still find that there’s something special about getting a letter, even in the age of the internet…talk with you later…Lee

Comments Off on Automated check out or not | Posted by Lee on July 11, 2011

Do you ever use the automated check out at the grocery store and do you like it?  Well, here is an interesting article that I came across recently…The supermarket chain Albertson’s is eliminating the self checkout lanes and will replace them with human beings saying they just wanted the opportunity to talk to customers more and Kroger, the biggest grocery chain, is experimenting with removing automation.  In a recent survey, 65 percent of grocery shoppers say they don’t like them and use them only when they have to.  How do you feel about that concept….talk with you later…Lee
