MLM Success Story: I'm a Top Mary Kay Beauty Consultant

Oct 24th 2010 11:44PM The header says "MLM Company: Mary Kay Cosmetics, since 1963". The company has been in business since 1963, not this particular rep.

Smart Light Switches

Jun 2nd 2010 1:11AM If you have young kids, these are great for bedrooms. Especially if they can't reach the switch. My kids could turn if on but weren't so good at turning them off so the auto-off is a benefit. I'd recommend the wider degree field, the 150 deg. range didn't work well for us and we had to swap it out for a 180 degrees.

Architects Back in Demand: Is a Housing Recovery Near?

Jun 1st 2010 11:58AM City building permits for new home construction and residential remodels/additions require professional drawings before issuing a building permit. Of course architects are used in the residential market.

Bill Hader Has Trouble With His Lines on 'SNL' (VIDEO)

Apr 26th 2010 10:53AM Agreed. That exactly what my husband and I said after that ridiculous diatribe. It was weird and way more personal commentary than for the benefit of the comedy. Besides, I've never liked Seth's rushed delivery of the punchlines. Always imagine how Dennis Miller would have done it a thousand times better.

Bill Hader Has Trouble With His Lines on 'SNL' (VIDEO)

Apr 26th 2010 10:31AM Bill saved the show Saturday. It was horrible and the guest host struggled with her lines and was terrible actor for someone who just won an academy award.

Dear Hollywood: About those high movie prices...

Apr 2nd 2010 4:51PM Wow, it's cheap in the mid-west! I took my two kids, one at the child price, to How to Train Your Dragon in 3D. It cost us a whopping $41. Do you think I was going to spend another small fortune at the concession stand?

Mind you I paid a service fee to get them through Fandango but that was only a few dollars. We're in Salem, OR. A capitol city, but far from huge urban center. We have a 2nd run movie house and that place gets more popular every year. $3 movies, real food at the concession stand, and $1.50 drinks.

We've decided the 3D just isn't worth the extra $5 per person they are charging. In fact, we forgot we were even watching a 3D movie and agreed the 2D would have been just fine. We're starting to find the glasses annoying.

The recession slammed 'Extreme Makeover: Home Edition' production, says Paul DiMeo

Feb 22nd 2010 10:38PM This show jumped the shark for me when they leveled a house and started over. It began as a fix up the unlivable that had become so due to unavoidable life circustamstances. Then Ty and crew had to keep outdoing themselves and putting McMasions in low-middle income neighborhoods. Several families could be helped with a room addition, kitchen remodel, a new roof, bringing a home up to code and forgo all the luxuries. I'd come back to watching it. I think it would be better if the production company maintained a lien on house for a few years to let the family adjust. If the house is sold in that time, the production company all or part of their money back. Habitat-for-Humanity does something like this.

The Savings Experiment - What's the Best Way to Ship Your Gifts?

Nov 20th 2009 1:17PM As a store owner, I can tell you that the shipping rates for UPS vs. FedEx ground are neck and neck. FedEx ground is a franchise operation. They pay drivers on a 1099 basis-no health care, retirement, unemployement insurance, etc. If your box is over 6 lbs. UPS/FedEx beats USPS on service and cost every time. Plus, UPS gives you $100 free insurance that will cost you $1.70 more at USPS. Driver behaviors reflect local management, but UPS drivers work a lot time to get driver status-it a career for most.
