Each week, my educator at work emails all staff members a newsletter with updates about things that we are responsible for knowing. We just got new satellite internet which allows me to check my work email from home, so I do not have to wait until I go to work to read the weekly newsletter. I actually enjoy our weekly newsletter. It always includes personal announcements from staff members, such as weddings as well as updates from our different committees. We are also responsible for taking tests throughout the year that cover changes in policies. Our newsletter gives us reminders of when new policies occur and when to take the tests that cover them. Our educator always adds cute graphics and inspirational quotes to make the newsletter more fun to read. I think that I would like to be an educator some day. I feel like I would be a good teacher and it would be a good change of pace. For now I guess I will just stick with reading the newsletters.

Have you seen the picture with the sexy chicken? It all started with a New York Times article on chicken skin. To sex it up a little they included a photo of a, ahh, naked chicken in a come hither pose. After all, how interesting is chicken skin? He needed a way to get someone to read it.
And he succeeded! Most people think it's funny. Of course PETA is up in arms. Personally I think it's a big to-do over nothing. News must have been very light the past few days.
BTW, if you want to see it head on over to the article on chicken skin and check it out. Or else go visit the grocery...

A close friend of ours has been remodeling his home this summer. My husband has been helping him out with all the manly stuff, but now it's my turn. He asked me to help him make his kitchen remodel awesome.
He is single, and can get by in the kitchen, but he is clueless when it comes to appliances. Since he hates shopping I have been showing him things online. We've got things narrowed down and now it's show time. We're going shopping this week for stoves, dishwashers and refrigerators. I love spending money, especially when it is other people's money.
And I can't wait to see my new kitchen...I mean his new kitchen.

I know I have a definite preference. Ask my husband what happens if he brings the wrong brand of ketchup home. But I just read an interesting article about how many other people are passionate about their choice of sauce for their burgers and fries.
What was even more surprising was the brand that won the taste test. While my favorite, Heinz, came in second, America's choice took number one. What the heck is America's Choice? Must be some really good ketchup.
