1. Delicious smells will make you hungrier.

You know you knead it. That’s why grocery stores often route you past baked goods and rotisserie chickens near the entrances.

2. Grocery stores also shepherd you past flowers and fresh fruits and vegetables near the entrance to make you feel better about the Double Stuffed Oreos you’ll be buying later. Bright colors make you happier, and you’re more likely to buy wholesome food right as you begin to shop, before your willpower is broken. And then, once your cart is loaded with kale that’s going to wilt in your fridge, you’ll reward yourself with those chocolate covered almonds that are practically a health food.

3. Essentials like milk, bread, and eggs are kept in the back. So you need to walk through the entire store to get there.

4. Grocery stores know you’re more likely to see – and more likely to reach out to grab – products at eye level. Another victim of the old put-things-where-you-can-see-them trick. That’s why they’ll stock items there with the highest profit margin.

5. That eye-level trick is also exploited with brightly colored products for kids. Outta my way, I’ve got important shopping to do. These are shelved at a lower level, right where your offspring can see something and beg, beg, beg you to buy it for them. Pleaaaase?

6. As we North Americans walk down an aisle, we tend to veer right. Grocery stores put more expensive items on that side.

7. Most stores are organized to herd you counterclockwise to make it easier for right-handed people to grab things.

8. Grocery stores build long aisles that make it hard for you to leave without walking down its entire length. 

9. In fact, they make it hard to leave the grocery store at all without walking through the entire thing. There is no beginning. There is no end. The supermarket is eternal. The layout is built like a Disney ride—one way straight through all of the shelves, and exits behind the checkouts to make it THAT much harder to leave without buying something.

10. Like a casino, the grocery store game is trying to get you to stay there as long as possible. To that end, they’ll forgo windows and clocks so you forget the outside world exists at all.

11. Listen to the music: music with a beat just slower than your heartbeat is proven to make you slow down (all the more time to find an impulse buy). Classical music makes people buy more expensive items.

12. Smaller floor tiles instinctively make you slow down in response to the faster clicking of your cart.

13. Giant grocery carts subconsciously make you want to fill them.

14. Narrow checkout aisles make it harder to ditch things last minute.

15. Free samples are delicious and hard to turn down. Which is good (for them), because a tiny bite will increase your appetite as you continue to shop.

They’re actually flamboyant in more ways than one.

Sculptor Don Featherstone, the creator of the iconic pink flamingo lawn ornament, died recently — but his invention will live on forever. Whether you find the retro decorations to be delightful or tacky, you have to appreciate how they’ve endured for decades. And some of the lesser-known facts about these pieces of midcentury kitsch might surprise you:

1. THEY CAME FROM MASSACHUSETTS, NOT FLORIDA.

 You might think these tropical creatures would hail from a warm-weather state, but not so. They’re from Leominster, Massachusetts. In fact, the town has been called the “Plastics Capital of the World” for the number of plastic manufacturers doing business in the area.

2. THE CREATOR WAS JUST AS COLORFUL AS THE BRIGHT PINK BIRD (HIS MOST FAMOUS WORK).This line in Featherstone’s New York Times obituary caught our eye, regarding the ensembles he and his wife wore: “[..]they wore matching outfits, handmade by Mrs. Featherstone, every day from the late 1970s onward, many of them in flamingo-patterned fabric.”

 3. THE ORIGINAL SCULPTURE WASN’T MODELED AFTER A REAL LIVE FLAMINGO.

When Featherstone was assigned to design the lawn ornament in 1956, he turned to a copy of National Geographic for inspiration.

4. THEY’RE STILL MADE IN THE U.S. (THOUGH THEY’VE MOVED AROUND A FEW TIMES.)

Union Products, the original manufacturer, has long since closed, but HHC International purchased the flamingo molds. According to Retro Renovation, the company produced the lawn ornaments in Westmoreland, New York. Then, in 2010, Retro Roadmap revealed that Cado Products acquired the intellectual rights to the design and moved the production back to Massachusetts.

5. THEY’RE IN THE SMITHSONIAN NATIONAL MUSEUM OF AMERICAN HISTORY. Two birds from 1980 are part of the museum’s collection and are described as “one of the best-known icons of American pop-culture kitsch.”

6. THEY’RE A KEY PART OF AN UNOFFICIAL TRADITION KNOWN AS “FLOCKING.”

Like the blogger behind The House That Lars Built demonstrates, flocking involves secretly filling someone’s yard with a bevy of pink flamingos (or, to be more accurate, a flamboyance ) to celebrate a birthday, anniversary, or for no other good reason than the fact that it’s hilarious. Believe it or not, many companies have popped up to offer this service. You really can get anything in America.

Every summer, Charter House has an outdoor furniture collection that is a ‘hot seller’. This year, it is the Havana Club Collection.  It is a bit on the traditional side of style but people are enjoying the high back comfort. Featured it in two colors of resin; (ESC) Espresso Country and (TAC) Taupe Country. Super comfort with the seating pieces, 6″ slab foam on the seat and 6″ poly fiberfill in the back cushions. All pieces have leveler feet, aluminum frames, UV protected resin and Sunbrella outdoor fabric. It is recommended that you protect your investment with covers or store the cushions inside when not in use.

Now you can control everything except the weather.

summer-party

1. Pretty Bug Banishers
Skip the noisy zappers and smelly sprays. Instead, ward off mosquitoes by scattering softly scented citronella votives in pretty glasses or candle-holders that you already own.

2. Spray Delay
Are your sprinklers on a timer? Power them down the day before the party. If you leave this for the day of, there’s a good chance you’ll forget. Plus, you don’t want a soaked lawn.

3. Two Bins, Not One
Chill drinks for two hours in the refrigerator, then transfer to a tub filled with ice. Place an empty tub next to the drink-filled one so that guests can easily drop in cans and bottles for recycling.

4. Double Dishes
Serving buffet-style means you’ll need extra plates. Guests often take a fresh one for seconds or dessert, so plan on two or three plates per person. Unbreakable is best. If you prefer disposable to melamine, consider compostable plates.

5. RSVP Guarantee
With a free scheduling site like Doodle.com, you can pick a party date that most of your friends can make. You offer options, guests check off when they’re free, and the site shows the results. Genius!

6. Refill Station
It’s a pain to run back into the house every time you need more napkins. Instead, hide two plastic tubs under a cloth-covered table and fill them with supplies: water bottles on ice in a “wet” bin and extra flatware, disposable plates, and paper towels in a “dry” one.

7. Tablescapes 101
Serving pieces of various heights give a spread style and maximize space. Don’t have cake stands? Set a plate with a rimmed base on top of an inverted flowerpot or bowl.

8. Music on Tap
Download playlists for the parties, remember to include something for everyone.

9. Tackle To-Dos in Advance
Lessen your party-prep stress by creating a timeline of tasks that you can handle early.

JOKE OF THE DAY: Let’s behave this weekend in a manner that would render it impossible for us to ever run for public office.

THIS DAY IN HISTORY: 1987 – Route 66 ceases to be an official U.S. highway.

HAPPY JUNE 29 BIRTHDAY TO: Sam Claflin 29, Toby Maguire 40, Ed Westwick 28, Vera Wang 66, Matthew Lewis 28, JJ Abrams 49, Helen Keller (1880-1968), Bob ‘Captain Kangaroo’ Keeshan (1927-2004).

Etymology is fun! It’s especially fun to learn about the quaint old-fashioned practices that gave rise to some of the words we use. Stereotype comes from printing, hard-up comes from sailing, pipe dream comes from opium dens.

Cultural practices change, technology changes, but words stick around—and not just in some long ago, far away place. It’s happening all around us as we speak, a hard truth that mental_floss editor-in-chief Jason recently had to face up to.

That’s right. Kids these days don’t know where hang up comes from, and those of us who remember the pre-cell phone era are already receding into the mysterious, etymological past. Here are 15 etymologies to answer the questions of future English speakers. Because the future is already here.

1. WHY DO WE “HANG UP” A PHONE? Phones used to have two parts to them, a base and a receiver. In order to end a call, the receiver had to be placed or “hung” on the base.

2. WHY DO WE “DIAL” A PHONE? To call someone on an old phone, you had to stick your finger in a rotating dial at number positions that would turn the dial for various lengths of time when released. You had to do the entire number every time.

3. WHY DOES A PHONE OR ALARM CLOCK “RING”? Now phones and alarm clocks can make any kind of sound to catch your attention, but a long time ago, phones and alarm clocks had little bells inside them for this purpose.

4. WHY DO CASHIERS “RING UP” A PURCHASE? Cash registers also used to have little bells in them. Cashiers would enter the price of each item on a set of mechanical levers, when they pressed the button to get the total, the total price would pop up in a window and the bell would ring.

5. WHY DO WE “ROLL” A WINDOW UP OR DOWN? Cars used to have hand cranks in the doors that moved the windows up or down when turned. To open or close a window, you had to roll the crank around a few times.

6. WHERE DOES “SOUNDS LIKE A BROKEN RECORD” COME FROM? Music used to be played on grooved discs, called records. When these discs were scratched or otherwise damaged, it would cause the same sound to be played over and over again. So to sound like a broken record was to repeat the same thing over and over.

7. WHAT IS THE ORIGIN OF “LUGGAGE”? People used to travel with big, heavy bags that had no wheels or collapsible handles. They had to “lug” these bags around from place to place.

8. WHY DO WE DESCRIBE HEALTH FOOD PLACES AS “GRANOLA”?I know! Granola is full of gluten and sugar! But decades ago, granola was considered a healthy alternative to eggs, pancakes, and bacon, which were then considered unhealthy.

9. WHY DO WE “TURN” A DEVICE ON OR OFF? Many devices used to require the user to turn a handle or knob in order to release the flow of an energy producing substance like gas, steam, or electricity. To stop the flow the knob would be turned back the other way and the device would cease operating.

10. WHY DO WE CALL IT A MESSAGE “BOARD”? Before the internet, when people wanted to make an announcement or share information they would put it on a piece of paper and attach it to a board mounted in a public location where many people would see it.

11. WHY DO WE CALL SOME SHOWS “REALITY” TV?Even though these shows do not actually show reality, at the time they first appeared, they were, in comparison, much less scripted and controlled than other shows, so they seemed somehow closer to the world as the way it was.

12. WHAT IS “CLOCKWISE”? Clocks used to be a circular array of numbers, with pointers mounted on a controller in the center that moved around the circle over the course of the day. The direction that the pointers moved, beginning towards the right at the top of the circle, was referred to as clockwise.

13. WHY DO WE SAY “ON LINE” FOR COMPUTER THINGS? In the early days of computing, when one machine needed to communicate with another, they had to be attached with a physical cord or “line.” Processes that could be completed without this communication were “off line.”

14. WHY DO WE SAY “REWIND” FOR A DO-OVER? Video and audio used to be on strips of tape that moved across a reader in order to be played. A gear on one side would wind the tape, pulling across it the reader from a wheel on the other side. When you wanted to re-play a section you had just heard or seen, or go back to the beginning, you had to re-wind the tape in the other direction.

15. WHAT DOES “CC” MEAN ON AN EMAIL? When you cc someone, you send them a copy of your message. It comes from carbon copy, an old method of creating copies of paper documents by transferring lines via carbon paper.

SHARING: I do not claim all posts to be my own…I post the sites they are from if the source is known.

JOKE OF THE DAY: That moment when you have something really important to say, but when you’re waiting for the person you are talking to stop talking, but when they do, you forget what you were going to say.

THIS DAY IN HISTORY: 1974 – The UPC is scanned for the first time for a pack of Wrigley’s chewing gun in Troy, Ohio.

Summer flowers are starting to come into bloom in Saskatchewan. This blog will help you make the most of arranging all those beautiful stems.

Jessica Marshall, owner of Miss daisy Floral Design Studio, in Las Vegas and New York City, let us in on some of her floral tricks to make decorating your home with beautiful flowers easy and simple.

1. Cut flower stems at a 45-degree angle one inch from the bottom.

This instantly increases the surface area for water intake, so your flowers will be well hydrated.

2. Use a teacup as a vase.

Don’t trash flowers with shorter stems. Instead display them in a teacup. Keep the stems together using a clear hair tie, like Goody Ouchless Mini Elastics, so they don’t separate in the teacup, which also makes it easier to change the water. Pictured here: pink ranunculus, lavender, and wildflowers celosia and muscari.

3. Open closed buds quickly by putting them in warm water first, then cold water.

After cutting flower stems as described in No. 1, put flowers in a glass filled with warm water. After a minute, move flowers to a vase filled with cold water and leave them for 20 minutes. Flowers will open up to their maximum size. Pictured here: pink peonies.

4. Add a vodka-sugar elixir to your water to keep flowers looking flawless longer.

Before putting your flowers in a vase, add several drops of vodka and a teaspoon of white sugar, which delays wilting. When your flowers eventually do start to die (sad face), add a shot of vodka into the water and the stems will stand up straight again for a day or two. Pictured here: tulip orange princess flowers.

5. Display succulents in pretty dessert bowls.

Dessert bowls make chic pots for a succulent! Simply fill to the brim with potting soil, which you can find at Home Depot, spritz the soil with tap water to moisten it, and then nestle the succulent into the top layer of the soil. Over time, it will begin to grow roots. Just be sure to spray them once a week with the spray bottle until the top of the soil looks wet.

6. Water your orchid with an ice cube.

First, repot your orchid into a vase using potting soil, if it isn’t already in a vase, and water the orchid with one ice cube a week. For larger orchids, use two ice cubes a week. The ice cube melts slowly and gives the orchid a slow drip of hydration, so that it doesn’t drown it.

7. Create a grid with transparent tape to keep flowers in place in a shallow vase.

First, make a grid with clear water-resistant floral tape (or thin transparent Scotch tape) to hold flowers in place. Then, insert fuller flowers first at an angle since they’ll take up most of the vase/bowl. Next, use medium-size flowers to fill in the remaining holes in the arrangement, and then use the smallest florals as your accent flowers to finish the design. Pictured here: blue hydrangea, purple lisianthus, scabiosa pods, lavender, and celosia.

8. Stack a vase within a vase in order to layer fruit slices along the inside.

Find a vase that fits inside another vase with half an inch of room between them. Fill the space between the two vases up most of the way with water before slipping in sliced lemons (the arrangement pictured required nine lemons). Pop your accent flowers (pictured are a dozen sunflowers) in the center vase, and voilà!

9. Dry flowers by hanging them upside down in a cool space.

Whether it’s a flower crown or a bouquet that you want to save, the best way to dry flowers is by tying the ends of the stems with a ribbon and hanging them from a nail, the corner of a picture frame, or a key rack, where they’ll serve as decoration.

10. Drop a penny in your vase to keep your flower water fresh longer.

The copper in pennies works as an acidifier, which helps prevent fungus or bacteria from growing.Note: Marshall suggests looking for pennies minted before 1982, since they contain more copper and will keep your arrangement look amazing a couple of days longer. Pictured here: scabiosa pods and scabiosa flowers.

11. Make a rose twist bouquet by stacking each stem over one another.

To create a rose twist bouquet with pretty crisscrossing stems, start by inserting your first stem into the vase, and then place the next stem across it and continue crossing each new stem over the last one until the glass is full.

3 Yoga Poses For Long Car Rides

0 Comment

It is holiday season and many of us will be stuck for hours in cars and on motorcycles. Here are 3 yoga moves to loosen those tight muscles. No, you do not need to be a yoga master to do this. Thank you to Jenna for this blog.

By: JENNA BERGEN SOUTHERLAND  JUNE 19, 2015

Summer isn’t complete without a great road trip or two, but the fun of the open road may cause your hips, butt, low back, and shoulders to feel tight—especially as you rack up miles. Sitting in a car seat causes your spine to lose its natural curve, which places strain on the vertebrae and discs, says Kristin McGee, a celebrity yoga and Pilates instructor. Driving can also aggravate the sciatic nerve, leading to hip and thigh pain, and the tipped-back position of a car seat places strain on your hamstrings, which cause the pelvis to become misaligned.

The good news: A few minutes of yoga will release tension from achy muscles, making the rest of your drive much more comfortable. Here are three simple poses McGee uses to keep her body loose and pain-free during car trips, complete with modifications for when you can’t break out the yoga mat in the parking lot.You’ve got: An achy back, neck, or shoulders
Try: Cat-Cow Pose

Slowly come up to all fours, wrists under shoulders and knees under hips. Inhale, then exhale as you round your back toward the sky like a Halloween cat, allowing the crown of your head to release down toward the mat. Inhale and reverse the pose, lifting your chest toward the sky and allowing your belly to relax and sink toward the floor. Lift your head to gaze straight ahead. Continue rounding and arching your back, linking your breath to the movement, 5 to 8 times. On-the-road modification: If you’re standing on the side of the road and can’t come down to all fours, come into a wide squat position and place your hands above your knees. Round and arch your spine, linking your breath to your movement, for 5 to 8 cycles.

You’ve got: An achy butt and hips
Try: Half Pigeon Pose

Half-pigeon pose(PHOTO BY BETH BISCHOFF)

Starting from Downward-Facing Dog, step your right foot to your left hand, bringing your right shin down and parallel to the front of the mat as you lengthen your left leg behind you. Keep your hips squared to the mat. Walk your hands forward and lower your torso to rest on the mat. Breathe into the outer hips and lower back. Hold 5 to 8 breaths, then repeat on other side. On-the-road modification: If you’re stuck curbside or at a rest stop, remain standing and place your right ankle above your left knee, creating a figure 4. Hinge your hips back (hold onto your car’s hood or door if you need help balancing) to stretch out the right hip and lower back. Hold 5 to 8 breaths, then repeat on other side.

You’ve got: Achy hips and back
Try: Revolved Crescent Lunge

From standing, step your left leg 3 to 4 feet behind you, and bend your right knee to about 90 degrees, coming into a lunge with your left heel lifted and right knee directly over right ankle. Bring your hands to prayer in front of your chest and twist torso to the right, placing the left elbow outside the right knee. Keep left leg strong and straight, pressing heel behind you. Look up past your right shoulder and hold for 5 to 8 breaths. Repeat on the other side. On-the-road modification: If you don’t want to go into full-on yoga poses at a rest stop, simply do a few basic runner’s lunges instead. You’ll still release your hip flexors.

Scarf Holder Hack

0 Comment

This is such a great idea. All you need is a coat hanger and a packet of shower curtain rings…I never knew it could be this easy to keep scarfs stored so they could be found easily, take up almost no closet space and keep them from getting wrinkled. As you can see from the photos, plastic hangers bend a bit with the weight, wood hangers are a better choice.
