Harry Potter Booger Juice

Mornings at our house are super busy and difficult to manage.  Who am I kidding?  Mornings, afternoons and evenings are tough.  This one will eat this.  This one won't eat that.  Did our daughter eat breakfast before she left?  You can't wear shorts it's 30 below zero!!!  You can't eat cake for breakfast!  Yes, you can eat cake for breakfast - but not JUST cake.

Try to balance nutrition in between this all - are you kidding me?  Here's a juice recipe I made up a few weeks ago.  It has every vital nutritional color represented which makes for a disgusting green sludge when it's all mixed up.  Despite the gross look it is delicious and you don't have to worry if your kids (or hubby or you) won't eat another fruit or veggie that day.  Pair this with some form protein, say an egg or lowfat cheese and you are good to go.

Work is Fun?

Recently I changed positions at work and I found that I had a real difficult time adjusting. I went from being in the field to being split between field time and office time and I was not enjoying it. In fact, although this was a move in the right direction for me, I felt like someone had let the air out of my tires. Instead of waking up on Monday mornings energized and looking forward to the people I would be interacting with I woke up dreading the day and the solitude.
As with most job changes when one person moves it causes a chain effect and many people in our organization moved into new roles at the same time I did. One person reached out looking for advice on how to adapt to his new situation. As usual, what I found in giving him advice is that I wasn't practicing what I preach. I wasn't living up to my own expectations. I was talking the talking, but certainly not walking the walk. Why wasn't I enjoying work? I wasn't making it enjoyable. It's not the new ro…

What To Do With Frozen Lobster Claws

Happy Valentine's Day!!!  We had our celebration a day early and while grocery shopping I came across frozen Lobster Claws.  I bought them thinking I could just Google directions on how to serve them.  No luck.  If you see them, buy them.  They are so yummy and here's how to prepare them.

How to Detect Email Fraud, Phishing Basics

I would have never thought in a million years that I would be a victim to fraud.  I am not overly
careful, but I am always alert (just ask my son who thought he'd get away with charging $212 on my Visa card).  Last Christmas I was the victim of identity theft.  A clerk at a cell phone store took my information and went to an Apple Store and basically took over my wireless account.  Lesson learned - set up your own phone at home.  Do not let the clerk do it for you in the store.

Going through that process I learned, what I thought at the time, was more than I needed to know about fraud, and specifically about phishing.  Until today, when someone thought I would buy in to their scam.

What is phishing?  Phishing is an attempt to obtain information from you by disguising an email to look like a site you trust.  Trust me, they look real.  There are logos, and links, and terms used that make it look legit, but if you look closer you can catch some details.
