How to Block Robo Phone Calls!

Most people think baseball games are boring but I’m here to tell you the things I learn between pitches at baseball games could fill up a volume of encyclopedias!  My friend Carol told me about NOMOROBO.COM last night and I could hardly wait to get home and fix my home phone.   I have VOIP instead of a traditional land line and ended up just having to enable Nomorobo on my Ooma dashboard and voila…my phone hasn’t rung in 24 hours!  It’s available as an app for iPhone but appears to cost a few bucks to have this feature for your cell.  It was FREE for my home phone!  Click the image below to get started!

Book of the Week: A Long Way Home

Stop what you are doing and check the theater listings for the movie LION right now.  You must see it…and see it on the big screen if you can.   This miraculous true story will have you on the edge of your seat.  This child actor (Sunny Pawar) will MELT even the iciest of hearts.  I would have adopted him ON.THE.SPOT.  My teenage BOYS say this is one of the best movies they’ve EVER seen in any genre. I agree.  First it was a media sensation. Then it became the #1 international bestseller A Long Way Home. Now it’s Lion, the major motion picture starring Dev Patel, Nicole Kidman, and Rooney Mara-nominated for six Academy Awards!

Tabata training is a high-intensity interval training workout, featuring exercises that last four minutes.Tabata training was discovered by Japanese scientist Dr. Izumi Tabata and a team of researchers from the National Institute of Fitness and Sports in Tokyo.

The Tabata protocol has tremendous fitness and weight-loss benefits. It is also a very short workout….therefore Tabata training can be attractive because it saves a lot of time for busy people like me.
