Careers Are Shifting; More Women Are Becoming Farmers

Farming used to have a male-oriented stigma attached to it.  I grew up on a farm in rural Nebraska where my dad and grandpa raised corn, wheat, milo, cows, pigs, and chickens.  And there were many male farmers in that section of the world that did the same thing.  Sometimes women helped around the farm, but never did they run a farm of their own, in my experience.  Now that's changing.

Can You Access Facebook at Work or Is It Blocked?

A new chart from Statista shows about 1 in 5 people cannot access Facebook at work.

Employers are blocking the site as a way of boosting productivity, because if there is no Facebook at work there is more time to make phone calls, file papers, put together presentations, and do the things that every good worker should do.

Facebook is the top site that's blocked, but employers are also blocking Linkedin, Twitter, Pinterest, and Youtube.  Are you blocked from these sites at work?  Apparently these employers have forgotten one thing.

If the Cowboys and Texans Make the Super Bowl, We’ll Be Paying BIG Bucks for Tickets!

It costs HOW much for a Super Bowl ticket?

The NFL is trying to close the gap between the face value of tickets, and the secondary market.  In other words, if the NFL increase ticket prices, scalpers will make less money and fans won't feel quite so taken advantage of when buying tickets from a ticket resale website.  Or will ticket brokers raise their prices too?

Office Desks Are Changing to Include Exercise Equipment!

Office desks used to be so simple.  Workers just needed a few folders and some drawers to shove things in, and they were all set for the day.  Now we've got computers and mp3 players and all sorts of new-fangled things sitting atop the desk. Now, some desks even come with treadmills!

Ten Things We’re Likely to Spend Too Much Money On

I have a friend who is planning a wedding right now, and although she's looking forward to the big day, she has expressed doubts about why in the heck she's spending so much money on one event.  She said, "All this money is going out the door and for what?  A big party?"  Look at it this way, sister.  You're spending a boat load of money on a party, but you'll get back a Titanic load of gifts.  It's not all bad!
