Mother's Day Gift Ideas: Moms Tell Us What They REALLY Want For Mother's Day

Mother's Day Gift Ideas: Moms Tell Us What They REALLY Want For Mother's Day

“Mine's a bit of a dual pressie. Start the day with kisses and cuddles, present me with a book that I've been dying to read (this is the part where they've paid attention to the books I speak about after listening to the online archived show of "The Book Report" - that's the nice thing about online archived shows; us busy moms can listen when it suits us- and if they can't remember go to the website's archives (bookreportradio(dot)com) and select something from one of the many shows that sounds half decent) and once I've opened my present, they all go out for the day, leaving me to kick off my shoes and do nothing but read uninterrupted for a good couple of hours! :) Love my family, but also crave some lone time!”

“Rare to see an author so trusting of her book in movie-maker's hands. I've just started Gone Girl after hearing rave reviews everywhere I turned. I saw someone comment that it was featured on The Book Report Radio Show last week, so decided to take a listen (they have an archive section with recordings of all the shows and author interviews) . It'll end up being one of those shows I'll listen to weekly, and then proceed to add 2-3 books to my (already long) reading wish list. If you're interested, I found the details for the show on bookreportradio(dot)com. Wonder how long before Flynn brings out her next book?!”

“Such a talented and down to earth actress. As someone in the public eye, I can only imagine how vulnerable she must have felt, finally writing about things from her personal life. Hats off to you, Sissy! I see her book is on the list of books for discussion on this weeks Book Report radio show-they'll be featuring superstar narrators and authors performing their own works-great that she is the narrator of the audio book-so much more personal. I don't often get a chance to hear the show broadcast live on radio but I often stream past shows from their website -- they usually have great author interviews and lots of interesting books are reviewed. If you want to catch Ms Spacek, check out the schedule at bookreportradio(dot)com.”
Productivity At Work: How To Reign In Cubicle Chaos

Productivity At Work: How To Reign In Cubicle Chaos

“@jsundgot I like your suggestion of siting doing nothing and resting your brain, but would like to add the importance of deep breathing. It's something we don't practice nearly enough, yet is so beneficial. The thing with giving your brain a rest and doing nothing for 10 minutes, is how difficult it is when you are surrounded by clutter. Often chaos in your surroundings, results in chaos in your thoughts. Get your cubicle in order by what ever means works for you- Megan's scanning documents seems like a real handy idea. Your work space becomes more pleasant, and with it, productivity also improves. If you're stuck in a bad cubicle, you may want to check out the contest I saw advertised the other day to get a cubicle make-over; was called Pimp my Cube (http://www.contestfactory.com/pimpmc/) and the idea is to video your space and the one voted worst, gets the make-over. A decent work space would definitely do it for me!”
Sprint Q1 2012 Loss Widens On Nextel, iPhone Lifts Sales

“Funny how the prepaid sectors of both Sprint and T-Mobile are currently their saving grace. Took them a while to notice how well Tracfone are faring after so many years of only servicing prepaid customers, but now that they have latched on, they are giving TF and subsidiaries a run for their money. I love the no contract aspect of prepaid and with their cheaper rates, can't believe more people haven't gone that way. Interesting to see you have unlimited everything for $35...I thought StraightTalk's was rock bottom at $45. Won't switch over though as I have better GSM coverage than CDMA.”

“Well put, jazzman! Just wading through the comments here and decided it was a good thing my husband and I decided to agree to disagree. He's (to me) like the iphone fanboy, I'm the prepaid "why spend more than you need to on a phone" fan. YES, go read a book, look at what's around you, interact with life, and in the process, save money on hefty bills to use on experiencing life! He thinks I live in the dark ages while he's "advancing" in the techno world with a phone that has less chance of actually connecting a call than my tracfone. And in the greater scheme of things, what does it matter 5 years from now? Will it make your children love or respect you any more? Will it improve your health? I know I'll sound like a pain in the ass to most here, but find it quite refreshing to see someone not put that apple on a pedestal, but rather pull a William Tell! :)”
