You Better Listen To Your Momma...

Annie's Blog

menmom2
Mother's Day weekend is here, did you get mom something special? I always find it so hard to shop for my mom! She'd probably be happy with just about anything, but no present ever seems big enough to show her how much I appreciate her! I know everyone thinks it, but my mom is the best out there!


Anyway, a new study has found a mother will pass on an average of 41 Pearls of Wisdom to their children. What is the most important lesson you learned from your mom? Here's a couple of things that made the list:

1. Always try your best
2. If you can't say something nice don't say anything at all
3. Get an education - no-one can take that away from you
4. Eat with your mouth closed
5. If you don't ask you don't get
6. Never spend money you don't have
7. Never take sweets from strangers
8. Smile
9. Never swim on a full stomach
10. Treat people with respect
11. Always wear clean underwear

I think the best advice my mom ever gave me is to always give your best effort... it doesn't matter if you win or loose, but if you don't try your best, what's the point? What “Pearls of Wisdom” would you add to the list? Let us know on Facebook!


Happy Mother's Day!

The BMV Wins Again...

Annie's Blog

What is it that makes the BMV such a horrible place to do business? As soon as I walk into the place my mood is deflated and I turn defensive! Is it like this for you? I'm now going on my 7th or 8th time trying to get two simple things done: get my Indiana License and Plates! ( I currently have Illinois plates) Should this really be a 7-8 visit process? Grrr!

Another point of frustration: the horrible pictures you must now take! You cannot wear your hair anywhere near your face, you must take your glasses off (which causes me to go cross eyed!), and you cannot even smile! Needless to say I look like a convict in my picture! (Check it out above)

Do you have any horrible experiences at the BMV? Share them on Facebook!

Do You Need Help?

Annie's Blog

Have you ever thought you might have an addiction and can't seem to break it? What if that addiction was to social media, like say, Facebook!?!? I'm constantly checking the App on my phone, so much so, sometimes I don't realize how obsessive it is! (Hey it helps pass the time!) Over 85 percent of Facebook users log on to their account at least once a day... so when does it become a problem? (Did I mention you should Like us on Facebook?) Let's take the test and see where you stand!

Here are six basic statements. Answer from the following scale: 1 = Very rarely; 2 = Rarely; 3 = Sometimes; 4 = Often and 5 = Very often.

You spend a lot of time thinking about Facebook or plan use of Facebook. 

You feel an urge to use Facebook more and more. 

You use Facebook in order to forget about personal problems. 

You have tried to cut down on the use of Facebook without success. 

You become restless or troubled if you are prohibited from using Facebook. 

You use Facebook so much that it has had a negative impact on your job/studies.

If you score 4 (often) or 5 (always) on at least four of these six points, then you could be addicted to Facebook... Remember the first step is always admitting you have a problem!

Top Ten To Do List

Annie's Blog

A new study of men and women asked the simple question: What do you want to do before you die? It's interesting the top few items on the list aren't that different between sexes, I thought we'd be total opposites! I don't know why, but I find it funny "record an album" is on both lists! Here's the breakdown:

WOMEN'S TOP TEN LIFE TO DO LIST

 Traveling the world

 Having a family

 Living in another country

 Getting married

 Learning a new skill

 Owning a shop

 Striking the work life balance

 Owning a bar or restaurant

 Swimming with dolphins

 Recording an album

Proud To Be An American

Annie's Blog

A new poll has found out most Americans would fail the US Citizenship Test! How confident are you that you would pass? (I'd put myself at 50/50!) The study, conducted by the Center for the Study of the American Dream at Xavier University, in Cincinnati, Ohio, found that one in three respondents would fail the civics portion of the test.

So what were some of the trouble spots? Seventy-five percent of respondents didn’t know what the judicial branch does, and 57 percent could not define an amendment! Here are some sample questions:

What is the supreme law of the land?

The idea of self-government is in the first three words of the Constitution. What are these words?

What is an amendment?

What do we call the first ten amendments to the Constitution?

What is one right or freedom from the First Amendment?

We elect a U.S. Senator for how many years?

 
How Do You Think You Did? Here's The Answers:

(ANSWER - The Constitution)

(ANSWER - We the People)

(ANSWER - a change to the Constitution; an addition to the Constitution)

(ANSWER - The Bill of Rights)

(ANSWER – speech, religion, assembly, press, petition the government)

(ANSWER – 6)

Tests over!
