Save your money skin TIP

We're constantly bombarded with advertisements for expensive face creams that promise to rejuvenate, exfoliate and everything else under the sun but do they ever live up to the hype? Newer isn't always better. It's all about revenue to these cosmetics companies with hyped up new to market products. One of my favorite go to night creams is plain ole Vaseline and I have battled acne all my life and I've tried just about everything from prescription grade to over-the-counter  but nothing works better than Vaseline when trying to keep my skin wrinkle free and youthful. Vaseline works wonders for your feet, hands, and face as a night time skin rejuvenation serum and it's super cheap. It doesn't only add value to your wallet as a face cream either. It can be used for countless quick beauty tricks that can replace many of your expensive cosmetics.


Canada Ready

Jokingly after watching trends the morning after the presidential debate, I told my daughter that I wouldn't be against packing up and moving to Canada if Trump won and obviously I was not alone in my feelings. Stories and memes about people pondering over the possibility of moving north is seriously becoming a heavily weighed option.

As a joke a radio DJ put up a webpage for those Americans who were considering the transition. The website only took him 30 minutes to create and was partially done as a joke but it immediately began to get serious traffic with 800,000 views in a 2 week time span.

So what are your thoughts on the idea? Seems like the natives of that small island are excited and eager for any new additions.


Drugs are bad... Okay

During a run to McDonalds with my kids, I heard a young man loudly boasting to his friends that his routine for partying was drinking followed by lines of cocaine so he exclaimed that he should cut out the drinking to get right to the "heavy hitter" and so many things rushed through me while listening to him reducing his potential. Im not surprised that kids find drug use cool especially listening to popular music but my concern was with the rationalization of him and his friends. Out of 4 young men there was no one in their lives to advise them on how drugs stagnant? When I was young, drugs were for junkies and in addition to voluntarily reducing your appearance and appeal to others, the shit cost major money. Why would anyone choose to spend their disposable income on something with such a fleeting effect is beyond me.

With all the obstacles that life provides naturally why do so many people choose to add shit like drugs into the mix which further complicates things? It's like a self inflicted wound. The long term issues it can lead to should foreshadow the temporary feeling of euphoria. In addition if you're young who the hell wants to date a burnout? Your pickings are narrowed because no wants to date someone they view as dead weight. Does young adults not think about their future? I'm grown and I still worry about mine. The price of necessities are continually increasing and that means you have to try harder to get more money for just the basics. Why waste money on drugs?
