GOOGLE Before You Rant


I have to bitch and moan a little bit because lately somethings have been really bugging me on Facebook.
First of all it's a social network not a place to whine and complain all the live long day about politics. Enough already-enough! Seriously why don't these people start a blog? You wouldn't walk into work or into a mall and start spewing your political rants? Or would you? I don't get it and am getting really sick of people's closed minded political agendas all the live long day when I go onto my FB page. Seriously!
And on that note, this Occupy movement? Really? I am as left as they come, but honestly this is not well organized. I went to two of these rallies and more than half the people there didn't even know why they were there. You people want to shut down B0fA? Really and render some 300,000 people out of work? How is that making anything better? It isn't. I am all for freedom of speech, but get a clue before you hold a sign about closing down anything that is giving Americans jobs in this economy. It's just plain silly to me.
As well, we all know the Republicans hate the Democrats and the reverse-we get it. No need to rant every single day on your page or if you must-which clearly you do-do your research. GW-was NOT the reason Sept 11th happened. Obama is not the reason we are in debt. Quit blaming everyone and do your research.
I think FB has helped in the dumbing down of the world. People see something on someone's page and agree without doing any reading on the subject. I had a friend a couple years ago going on and on about socialism and how we would lose all our rights and be controlled-basically she was describing Communism and when I called her on it, she said, "well you know, Fascism, Communism and Socialism are all the same." SERIOUSLY? UGH....as well I have another friend always going on and on about he is a Capitalist and yet he wants everyone in America to have the same income range and have gov. help on stuff-hello? That is Socialism.
I am not saying I have all the answers here-but if I choose to rant-I at least, at the very least, go to this great new invention called GOOGLE.

"Who Would You Have Dinner With?"

In college and even some job applications that age old essay question always pops up: "Who would you have dinner with, dead or alive, if given the chance?"

In 10th grade, I answered Madonna because I thought she was strong, ambitious, smart and could do whatever she wanted. I admired her so much, and wanted to be like her in many ways-not a pop start-but I wanted to be like her spirit. I was living alone at the time (long story), and had really no one in my life to look up to and she was a role model to me.

In 12th grade we were asked the same question and again, I answered, Madonna for the same reasons. Although at this point I had moved in with my mother and my step-father, who hated me in high school. I was really close to my step-brother John, but still felt isolated and alone and Madonna symbolized someone who made it on her own, even though things were hard.

Throughout the years I have had many idols and of course that question has been asked of me in interviews and su…

How to Be Healthy and Fit-Don't Listen To....

People often ask me about health & fitness because I was so involved in that industry for so many years and I still post about great programs, blogs, books, trainers, online classes, programs etc. (like Denise Austin-who was the first person I trained with in the late 80s to get certified, Michelle Bridges, Mari Winsor, Tracey Anderson and workouts like Barre3, The Bar Method, Zumba, etc).

Here is what I'm going to say.
1) Just because someone has starved themselves and lost a ton of weight, that does NOT make them an expert.
2) Just because someone runs or goes to the gym, that also doesn't make them an expert.
3) People who give sweeping advice like, 'be gluten free, be vegan, only eat 1000 calories a day' etc.. are not qualified to tell you, or anyone else how to be healthy.
4) Also, SKINNY does NOT equal healthy, this is a dangerous concept.

These are important things to remember.
If you want to lose weight or get healthier, please go to your fitness club and spe…

Where Has Customer Service Gone? Taos Footwear is Horrible

AVOID TAOS FOOTWEAR unless you want to be treated like shit.
Usually I like to take the high road and let things go, but after thinking about this for the last 24 hours, I'm afraid to say that I can't not tell what happened when I returned a pair of shoes that didn't fit me to Taos footwear.

First of all, I love their shoes. I ordered four pairs at $100 or more in less than a month, but they don't care about that, they just needed to be right and right meant downright abusive and awful to a paying customer.

Beginning of June, I order a pair of Taos shoes and love them.
End of June, I order a second pair, the Hey Jute because they were on sale for only $100 instead of $130.

The canvas is super tight so I call them up and speak to a woman, Lisa I believe is her name, she was amazing BTW, she is the only one who is decent at this company-or at least who I have talked to.  She said if they were hurting my feet to return them, but they didn't pay for shipping. I wasn…
