Tuesday Tidbits


GOOD MORNING FRIENDS! AND ...


 photo ATT00139.gif Hugs to you!




                                           Do you see the animal sleeping (Mexico).  It's called a Cody...



Swimming in Mexico - (are you guys getting tired of Mexico yet?)



Okay a couple of short tips today from Women's Day -

DON'T SURF FACEBOOK BEFORE LUNCH - New research finds that people who were the most active on Facebook had a higher BMI.  The surprising theory:  Experts say that viewing friends' photos and feel better about yourself, which in turn lowers your self-control.  So. skip the social medical check in before making a mean or snack choices and save it for when you need a little pick me up.

MAGNESIUM

And a lot of us are short on a very important mineral called magnesium.  Do you know that soaking in m Epsom Salts is one way to get some.  Remember are skin is our largest organ and it'll soak it on in!




THE LAUGH:




THE LIFT:

Loving the pics of Mexico! And that's a very interesting study about FB. Hmmm- might need to change my habits!

Sandra said...

i don't do FB before lunch, but i do blog all morning. and here i thought my bMI was high from eating to much, so now all i have to do is stop blogging....

Jill said...

No way! Not tired of Mexico here. Keep 'em coming!

Interesting about the Epson salts and magnesium! Who knew?

jack69 said...

Never tire of happy travel shots, keep the kid coming, love that smile!

I do not hang around FB much. Don't know what I am doing. Sometimes do not know where or how to answer or enter. But I am a little heavier than I should be.(smile)

I have looked like the cat in a Mall. The LIFT is RIGHT ON!
I need to remember that!!

Well next time I weigh-in at the doctor's office I have the perfect excuse - Facebook. Wonder if the doc will buy it?

Sharon said...

No (in English) and no (in Spanish), I am not tired of Mexico yet! Especially when they include photos of that scamp, your GS!

Interesting about the magnesium. If stuff gets in through your skin like that, I wonder what would happen if we got that mudbath???

Ginny said...

The waiting husband cat is so funny! NO I will never get tired of Mexico because I have never been there, plus your grandson is in the pictures. How is Disco doing by the way? How long have they been gone?

Ms. A said...

I can't speak for FaceBook being the cause of my increased BMI, but I sure think blogging hasn't helped one bit. I need to get a life of my own, instead of reading about the lives of others... and get off my fat @$$.

Cheryl @ TFD said...

Keep the photos coming!

I need to tell my kids about FB. :)

About the magnesium, I often take Calcium with magnesium and I can tell a difference when I forget to take it.

Love that kitty face. I might have seen that exact look on my hubby's face a time or two. Haha!

Have a nice week, Sandie!

Renae of Simple Sequins said...

Did you get my email????

Haven't heard back - it is there!

Thank YOU for all of your nice compliments to me and my blog, etc!!! (hug)

Theresa said...

I am seriously lol at Husband Kitty. That's the look mine usually has while waiting for me. It's usually followed by a text that simply says WTF? lol

Terri D. said...

I'm not tired of see Mexico photos, and your sweet Andy! I love that he had so much fun!

As always, your posts bring a smile to my face!

barbara l. hale said...

Cool pix of Mexico! I didn't know that about facebook and BMI but it sure makes sense. I guess I should eat lunch earlier...

Stacy said...

Facebook...that's my problem! LOL

Ann said...

who could get tired of Mexico?
I don't go to FB very often and when I do it's not for long.

SweetMarie said...

Not tired of photos from Mexico, keep them coming!
I don't have a facebook.:)
hugs,
Marie

Merlesworld said...

Never been to Mexico so it's all new to me.
Merle.............

Inger said...

Love those last words, so true. The kitty husband is pretty cute too.

Debby@Just Breathe said...

Looks like they had a wonderful time on their vacation.

Skoots1moM said...

Mexico would be a great getaway...i'm on fb way too much...

Retired English Teacher said...

I guess I am more amazed that there is such research about facebook than I am about the findings. It seems there is never a loss of topics to research.

I love Mexico. Show all the photos you want.

By the way, what if you multi-task while you surf FB before lunch by using your phone? ;)

Tree Hugger - Suzan said...

I hate checking out facebook in the morning, because I'm still there by noon --- grrrrrrrrrr!!

Jo-Anne Meadows said...

No I am not tired of Mexico yet......

Jemma said...

Enjoying your positive approach to life! You always know how to point us all in the right direction!
Sweet Hugs my friend!

My Journey With Candida said...

I was in Mexico once and we had a BLAST! Maybe one day we might go again.

Doll House said...

Love the pictures in Mexico
I think people are staying more and more hours in front of the computer or mobile screen, which is not good but we can't do anything, the time is coming this way
Good post *_*

Debbie said...

Yet one more plus for Epsom salts. I swear that I'm going to post about those little miracle crystals some day...

Optimistic Existentialist said...

No more FB before lunch for me!

Dee said...

not sure about the FB info....but something is making me chubby...hmmmmm? I will have to tell Frank about the bath salts and magnesium. He soaks his feet a couple times a week in it,
