Seven Links for Sunday
I love quick videos with useful information. This clip from the Washington Post explains how a dog communicates with his tail. The most interesting thing I learned? A dog with a short tail is at a disadvantage!
Lately, there’s been so much information on the importance of limiting your sugar intake! I found this article about the sugar industry paying scientists to blame fat for heart disease fascinating, but not surprising. Unfortunately, people will do most anything for money.
My sister is a dietician, and she just wrote the best post: Ten Killer Tips for Healthy Weight Loss. They’re realistic, life long goals that are maintainable. I love them, and I wish I could eat this way every day! The thing I’m worst about? Sweets. She recommends limiting dessert to twice a week. I’m trying…
This article is funny, partly because I like to read YA fiction, and partly because it reminds me of college and roommates and how hard it is to get along with people! I would never be so bold as the author of the email in this article, but I can understand the desire to set boundaries.
Buzz cuts for women are a fashion trend! I could never do it. I’m too vain about my hair. But, the woman from the article, Alana Derksen, pulls it off! She said it’s given her a new sense of confidence. Oh to be so brave!
My favorite shows are returning! Yeah! I can’t wait for Modern Family and Big Bang and The Blacklist! This article is all about the shows premiering this fall! And they’re graded! (I’m a teacher, so I tend to grade things in my mind, and, if I’m being honest, out loud.) I’m going to check out Quarry from Cinemax–it got an A. It’s set in Memphis in 1972. It’s about a Marine who returns home from Vietnam and ends up working as a hired gun. Eight episodes! I can’t wait!
Finally, Athleta sells the most lovely athletic clothing! I found this sweater made from Merino Wool on final sale, and I couldn’t resist. Years ago I purchased Merino Wool from Costco, and it’s one of my absolute favorite sweaters. Hopefully, I will love this sweater just as much because I can’t return it! Oh no!
May your Sunday be filled with well cooked vegetables, doggie play dates and the most excellent television.
