June 16th – Give props to any special dads you know, today. Among many things, they are important role models for our kids.

Having a dad/step dad/primary-male-figure fully engaged in a child’s life is invaluable.  Men bring a different perspective to kid’s lives …not just that ice cream is okay for dinner perspective (and don’t pretend like we don’t know all know that, ha)…, but in all facets – emotional, mental and physical.  Give props to the special dads you know, today, they are helping to shape our future.

Happy Father’s Day to my hubby, arguably the best dad in the world! 😉


June 13th – Stay below 60 mph while driving today to save gas.

Great tid bit I found from Real Simple… according to Chris Grundler of the National Vehicle and Fuel Emissions Laboratory in Ann Arbor, MI, “Fuel economy suffers at speeds higher than 60 and drops like a stone above 70.”   Richard Beard, an associate professor at Utah State University who researches fuel efficiency added “Slowing from 70 to 55 can increase your miles per gallon by 15 percent.”

June 12th – Make sure to clean the filter of your dryer (and wash it every 6 months) for it to run more efficiently.

It is also suggested that every six months you take the filter out and wash it with hot soapy water and a brush (i.e. toothbrush or other)…. esp if you use dryer sheets (there can be a non-visible film that collects).

Helps save the life of your dryer and save energy and money while your dryer runs more efficiently.

June 9th – Today, write down 10 things you still want to do or accomplish in your lifetime.

Every several years I like to pull out this list to see what I have done and what new ones I would like to add.  Some are small and others take quite a bit to achieve.  You can do anything you set your mind to.

You may not be able to focus on all 10 things at once. Try less than 3 at a time, just make sure you are living the life you want to live.
