Do you know what your co-workers make?  If not, that may change soon.

Back-To-School Pics Dominate Facebook

I love looking at all the back-to-school pics on social media this time of year.

One of my sassy, fun (and kid-less) Facebook friends posted this on Monday, "Um...Did school start?" Haha! What makes you say that?!

Yeah...maybe we parents are guilty of overloading Facebook with backpack pics, but we don't have anything else exciting going on. Sideways wink!

Worker Escapes A Lion At The Dallas Zoo

Having a job working with animals at a zoo has to be sort of similar to a security guard watching security cameras all day.  Most of the time everything is calm and serene and just fine, and very little happens.  But then there's that one moment when things get tense, and it's time to act!

A worker was cornered by a lion at the Dallas Zoo a few days ago, and had to be treated at the hospital after the attack.  Here's what led up to it.

Preseason Football Is A Big Tease

Anyone else ready for the NFL season to start?  Every time our favorite teams win a preseason game we're convinced our team is great and in good shape for the regular season.  If they lose a preseason game we say, "oh well, it's just the preseason!"

The games don't count, but it is fun to watch guys try to make the team and catch a glimpse of the team as it takes shape.
