How Sports Can Get You Ahead In Business

Girls, It's Time To Get Into The Game

by: Sharon DeVellis

This Gal's Got Game

Do you think about raking when someone mentions The Maple Leafs?

I’m the first to admit that I barely know anything about hockey even though my youngest son plays in both winter and summer and my husband has played forever. I’m the person at every hockey game asking:

What’s offside?
What’s icing?
Why did that kid get a penalty?
What’s offside again?

Hey You! You're Better Than Who You Think You Are

How wonderful would it be to see ourselves through someone else's eyes

by: Sharon DeVellis

Seeing Yourself Through Someone Else's Eyes

My thighs are too big.
I wish I had better skin.
I’d look good if it wasn’t for this muffin top.
I don’t want to go out tonight, I feel fat.
Ugh, these bags under my eyes make me look 70.

Are you guilty of saying something like this to yourself?

I am.

We’re our own god damn worst enemies, aren’t we? If anyone ever said something like this to our kids or one of our friends, we’d go all, “It’s on like Donkey Kong” on their asses. Yet, we have no problem saying these things to ourselves. Every. Single. Day.

How To Make Colored Flowers

This is an easy experiment to show how a flower draws water up its stem and into the petals.

Materials Needed:

Flowers (preferably white)
Food colouring
Drinking glasses
Water

What To Do:

1) Fill a glass with water.

2) Place eight to ten drops of food colouring in the water. (In our experiment we used red.) The more food colouring you use, the brighter the end result.
