...hey, but who is counting? Well, they are in Houston.

Apparently a local hotel's executive chef created a half ton chocolate Santa with a cost of $5,000 and 400 hours of culinary time to create! Lucky for some, it's not edible as thy covered it with a lacquer finish.

Fresno Heart and Surgical Hospital (FHSH) is participating in a program with the help of Community Medical Centers Foundation staff that formally recognizes employees that are commended by patients, families, and/or friends, for extraordinary care and customer experience. It's a way for them to say "thank you" in a palpable way.

If you were to ask folks what they are thankful for, you would undoubtedly get a variety of answers depending on different vantage points: stages of life, personal circumstances, location, career, affiliations, world-happenings, the economy, and...well, you get the picture.; often it is circumstantial.

...Yep, I think I'm more "bottom-brained"...huh?

I read an article recently that indicated left and right brained is so yesterday...all the rage now is "top-brain" and "bottom-brain". The theory now centers around a more anatomical division between the top and bottom halves of the noggin'.

The top portion is composed of the parietal lobe and top of the frontal lobe which apparently uses more information about our environment and emotional reactions to formulate plans and generate expectations.

...Nope, it's not a typo. Miriam-Webster definition: "to paint (the face) with cosmetics".
I was driving to work the other day and saw a gal putting on her makeup while driving (not even at the stop light...she was going about 40 miles an hour while attempting to do). I think there should be a law on the books against that! (hehe). As my mother used to say..."you could poke your eye out with one of those things" (mascara wand)!
