A day without technology?, Totally Awesome Fishing Adventure, Movie Reviews

The Good Friends Question of the Day: “LIKE” if you think you could go 24 hours unplugged from technology – cell phone, email, social networks, computer? What technology would you happily unplug and which would you miss the most.

Goal of the day: From sundown today till sundown tomorrow shut down your computer,turn off your cell phone. Stop the constant emailing, texting, tweeting and Facebooking to take time to notice the world around you. Connect with loved ones. Nurture your health. Get outside. Find silence. Avoid commerce. Give back. Eat Together.

One Returns, Word of the Decade, Choosy about Snacks, Box Office,

One Returns: I’m back, sick since last Wednesday. Al’s is still ill, Pray. Severe cold and chest congestion. A lot of this stuff is going around, tips include washing your hands, cough in your sleeve, don’t go to work if you have fever, and drink lots of water.


Be choosy about nighttime snacks: Mindless eating occurs most frequently after dinner when you finally sit down to relax.  Sitting down with a bag of chips or cookies in front of the tv is an example of mindless eating. Either close the kitchen after a certain hour, or allow yourself a low-calorie snack like a 100-calorie pack of cookies, a half cup of low-fat ice cream or a piece of fruit. If you’re really not hungry choose herbal tea or sugar free cocoa. (Good Food Friend, Amy McLeod, RD, LD)
