Rona's DVD Recommendation: Alf Season One

I still remember enjoying Alf's adventures with the Tanner family when the show originally aired on NBC, over 20 years ago. Now our teenage son has discovered Alf from TVLand. I actually get more enjoyment watching laugh over Alf's one liners and mis-adventures while watching season one on DVD.

Eat Healthier

Planning your family meals will cut down on your trips to your favorite fast food restaurant and the amount of pizza you have delivered to your door. Food you prepare at home tends to be much healthier than hamburgers with fries, fried chicken or pizza.

Save Time

How much time are you spending now running to the grocery store a few times a week. I used to run to the store at least 3 times a week to buy something to fix for dinner. Planning your meals out for a week at a time and then putting together a grocery list with everything you need to cook those meals wil…

Building Rapport with Phone Customer

Visit Myra Golden's Seminar site for her Top 7 Tips for Building Rapport with Phone Customers. I recommend her site for veterans and newbies of customer service.

I couldn't figure out what was wrong with me--until I observed the way I plopped myself at the computer desk...

I tend to sit with my legs crossed and turn the chair to the side. My body was all twisted like a pretzel and I was slumping my shoulders and back too. It's not a wonder I was feeling like I was falling apart!

Once I turned my self around, straight in front of the computer and used good posture, I no longer have those aches and pains.

Here's a few tips to make sure you're sitting up correctly in front of your computer:
