Shaving Cream to Clean Mirrors

Can you say messy. I sprayed this on my mirror and let it sit. Then the instructions from an unnamed book said use newspaper to clean the mirror. Well I would need a whole Sunday paper to get the shaving cream off. This was so messy I would rather stick to my Dollar Tree window cleaner. Spray it on wipe and go. The reason this is a good alternative is because its suppose to prevent the steam on the mirrors. Well I will never know, it took me forever to get that foam off the mirror. I do not recommend this tip to anyone unless you have plenty of time and patience.

Boxing

I am a huge boxing fan and have been for over twenty years. Now that is often hard to believe because I am a female but I attribute it to being my Dad’s only child. I always say I had to be the girl & the tomboy so my Dad got the best of both worlds in me. Now back to boxing, I have been a fan since the Don King era. Although I am NOT a fan of Don King I have a lot of respect for what he brought to boxing. He paired some of the best fights because he had the market cornered. Even if you weren’t promoted by him you sought his promotion because his fights made money. Now it is questionable how many of his fighters saw that money as evidenced by Mike Tyson. However, it was a wonderful experience for boxing fans that the best fight for the public would be the next fight for the public. In the day and age of rapper Fifty-Cents being a fight promoter, with most fights you need change for a penny. I am disappointed that promoters like Bob Arum and Golden Boy Promotions can’t put on their big boy pants and think of the sport and it’s fans. Like it would hurt them to split the 60 million they have left after paying their fights. God forbid we ask grown men to share. I am slowly becoming partial to the UFC. I have heard that it’s Dana White’s way or the highway but he gives the fans the fights they want to see and there is no question to that. Boxing promoters better get on board or their billion dollar empire is in jeopardy.

My Lent Experience

I participated in lent this year. I have a lot of things that I could give up but I chose ALL social media. My motivation came from an episode of Dr. Oz that said people who live without social media are happier. I figured why not try it. I am not addicted and I can honestly say that I don’t use Facebook, Twitter, or instagram on a regular basis. So with that said I figured this should be fairly easy. But I did miss seeing family post and finding out about the happenings going on. I didn’t miss those people who tell too much online and the latest on Jay Z & Beyonce or Kanye & Kim. I had to constantly remind friends and family that if they want me to know something mass communication via social media won’t work. It was nice for people to have to make a personal effort to include me and that I had to do the same. I am planning a baby shower and I asked friends for their address so I can send invitations. They thought I was crazy saying “why not use evites?”. The evites are quicker and cheap. I personally feel that the blessing and the curse live in the use of internet. We have definitely lost that personal touch that made some feel special. Now I am not saying I am ready to walk away from cyberspace communication but I am saying that I am going to make a conscious effort to reach out in other ways. Life is to short not to make the effort to make others feel special, especially if they are special to you.
