Random Blogging For Wednesday June 26th

Good Morning!  How are you today?  Yesterday was a crazy day, had my parents in town, and my son broke his nose at wrestling camp..  He is a trooper, barely cried..  He's doing ok.. No surgery so that's good.  It was interesting trying to entertain the parents and deal with that..  Hope today goes a little better.  :)  Hope you have a great day.. Here is what you missed on today's show.

For The Ladies:  9 Tricks To Speed Up Your Morning Beauty Routine

1. Shower at Night--You'd be surprised how much time you can save by getting your shower out of the way the night before. If skipping your morning shower is out of the question, think about not washing your hair instead. Bedhead and messy updos are in, anyway.

2. Use Dry Shampoo--Skip washing your hair with these sprays that mask oil, dirt, and odor on dirty hair. Look for powdery sprays that also add volume to make it seem like you've just had a blowout.

3. Style While You Sleep--Get ready the night before. That way, when you wake up in the morning, you have perfect no-fuss waves.

4. Organize Your Beauty Cabinet--A five-minute face is doable, if you keep your beauty products organized. Knowing exactly where everything is will speed up your routine and cut your time almost in half. Use vintage jars for brushes, pencils, and mascaras and try trays for stacking compacts and lipsticks.

5. Save Time With Two-in-One Products--Edit your makeup bag by choosing products that multitask. A CC cream that conceals, protects, and moisturizes your skin; a cheek and lip tint; an eyelash tint that thickens your lashes to look like you have eyeliner on; and an eye shadow stick that doubles as a liner and shadow will all help cut steps and speed up your routine.

6. Use Red Lipstick--Red lipstick might be the ultimate glamour statement, but it's also a go-to for girls. Consider red lipstick for those days when you just don't have the time for anything else.

7. Invest in Tinted Lash Treatments--If you're the kind of woman who can't leave the house without mascara, consider getting your lashes and brows tinted. Lashes will appear fuller, darker, and longer-just like they have mascara on them-while brows will appear more groomed and shaped.

8. Save Time with Waxing--Shave off a few minutes by switching to a razor with its own built-in lubrication. Or, consider getting your legs waxed during skirt season. The effects will last up to a few months.

9. Multitask Your Skincare--Skip the multiple steps it takes to apply lotion, SPF, and perfume, and instead reach for a product that takes care of these needs all at once.

Woman Drank Only Soda For 16 Years.. Yeah She Has Health Problems

A 31-year old woman (in Monaco) was suffering from heart problems and fainting so she went to the doctor, who told her that her problems might have something to do with the fact that she drank only soda for about half her life.

A blood test showed she had severely low potassium levels. And a test of her heart's electrical activity revealed she had a condition called long QT syndrome, which can cause erratic heart beats.

The woman didn't have a family history of heart or hormone problems, but she told her doctors that since the age of 15, she hadn't drank any water, just cola. She drank about 2 quarts of cola every day.

After avoiding soda for just one week, the woman's potassium levels and heart electrical activity returned to normal.

 

** Drinking too much cola can cause excess water to enter the bowels, which leads to diarrhea and loss of potassium. High amounts of caffeine can also increase urine production and decrease potassium reabsorption. Potassium plays a role in helping a person's heartbeat and low levels of potassium may cause heart rhythm problems. Excessive soda drinking can also lead to weight gain, which is a risk factor for heart disease.

Have You Lost Luggage On A Plane?  How About 1.2 Million Dollars In Cash?

Somebody stole $1.2 million dollars from a plane at JFK airport in New York.

The money was being transferred from Switzerland to the US and heading to the Federal Reserve.

$92 million dollars showed up safe and sound, but $1.2 million $100 bills were missing.

Authorities aren't sure if the cash was stolen before the flight took off or after it landed.

A forklift operator said there was a hole in one of the three crates of money big enough that an arm could fit in.
