“Puppy Bowl” always a win for animal shelters

There will be a winner and a loser every Super Bowl Sunday. But at the “Puppy Bowl,” it’s always a win for animal shelters.

The show provides national exposure to the shelters across the country that provide the puppy athletes and the kittens that star in the halftime show, and introduces viewers to the different breeds and animals that need homes, animal workers say. Many shelters see bumps in visits from viewers who are inspired to adopt a pet.

I hate New Year’s Eve. Or rather, I hate what New Year’s Eve has become. Oh the pressure to have fun……

Much is said about Christmas being turned into a mess of commercialism and thing- hoarding. But hot on its heels is New Year’s Eve. Hollywood and everyone else has made a mini-industry of propagating the notion that Dec. 31 is a magical night full of expectation and promise (Thank you “When Harry Met Sally”). A night when anything can happen. A night when love blossoms unexpectedly, when your problems evaporate, when a ball in Times Square drops and your life changes in an instant. (Remember “Poseidon Adventure”)

Top 5 Holiday Movie Houses (and 1 Honorable Mentions)

I love a good Christmas Holiday Movie. And here are my Top favorite Christmas Houses. Some made such an impression on me that my own home reflects their style.

#5. The Family Stone

This gorgeous home in Riverside, CT (above) was the home used in The Family Stone, a star-packed, romantic comedy featuring Sarah Jessica Parker. The 1860 colonial is the gathering place for the Stone family’s annual Christmas celebration. The 3,554 sq-ft house consists of 10 rooms — 5 of which are bedrooms — 3.5 bathrooms, and sits on 1.4 acres. With a classic, yet cluttered interior this house is the ultimate, well-worn home perfect for big holiday gatherings. When I see this lived-in home I so long for my Grandparents wonderful house in Ohio.

November Unemployment Falls to 7.7 Pct. Now that’s Good News!

The economy generated 146,000 new jobs in November and unemployment fell to 7.7 percent, better than economists expected, despite worries that superstorm Sandy and the looming fiscal cliff would dampen hiring.

There are still 12 million people unemployed in the country, but the Labor Department said Sandy did not significantly affect jobs.

Many economists had expected employers to have added about 90,000 jobs, causing the unemployment rate to tick up slightly.

The Labor Department’s Bureau of Labor Statistics dialed back job gains for the previous two months. In October, the U.S. economy added 138,000 jobs, not the 171,000 reported before the election. The jobs added in September were also revised downward to 132,000 from 148,000.
