Wacky New Ice Cream Flavors Are Coming

Seasonal flavors of coffee, ice cream, and even potato chips are all the rage. We get those, right? It's not too hard to understand that pumpkin ice cream might be kinda good, maybe tasting a bit like pumpkin pie. Pumpkin coffee is yummy too. Those who have tried the pumpkin-flavored Pringles say they're surprisingly good too. The sweet-salty combination works.

Some researchers say pairing a vegetable with fat helps the body process vitamins. And that is clearing the way for more wild and wacky flavors...like mushroom ice cream. Believe it!

Self-Gifting Is Big This Year

While you're out doing the holiday shopping and buying gifts for everyone else, are you tempted to splurge on something for yourself?

This idea of self-gifting was actually part of the sermon I heard at church yesterday, so I did a little more investigating and dug up some interesting facts.

My pastor said we'll spend on average, $75 on a gift for a close friend, $23 on an acquaintance, and $123 on a gift for ourselves. Tis the giving season! To ourselves apparently. A national newspaper says the self-spending total will be even higher - close to $200 per person.

Your Packages Are On the Way…Cyber Monday Sales Were HUGE

The Research firm ComScore says sales this past Monday were around $1.46 BILLION. That's up 17 percent from the $1.25 billion total of 2011. We spent dollars like crazy online Monday. Don't you wonder how much of that was done at work? We didn't get much done at work that day. We were too busy shopping.

The UPS guy has been to my house two days in a row with deliveries. Does anyone else have a little cyber guilt for all of the separate online orders? I feel bad the the UPS guy has to make separate trips for little packages here and there. I wonder if he sees my address and gets mad. Not again! Oh UPS man, there will be more where that came from. We may start setting out cookies and milk for you, Fed Ex, and the Post Office. We'll be seeing a lot of you over the next three weeks.
