Today's Brain Teaser . . .
Why is it common to have the snooze alarm interval
be 9 minutes on alarm clocks?

  (see answer below)
Four Healthy Habits Of
High-Energy People . . .
Would you like more energy throughout the day? The secret to beating fatigue is not in your next cup of coffee or energy drink. For lasting energy, try these natural ways to pump yourself up:

#1:  Get some exercise. I know the last thing you want to do when you have low energy is put on your sneakers and head out for a brisk walk. But many scientific studies prove that walking, a light jog, or even lifting a few weights can boost your energy levels in no time flat.

#2:  Take a nap. If you're too tired to even exercise, you might need a nap. Researchers at the University of California confirmed that a midday snooze can make you refreshed and more productive. A short nap where you wake up before going into a deep sleep works best. Set a timer so you don't oversleep.

#3:  Take a break. If you're not able to lie down, try going outside for a few minutes. On a clear day, the sun's rays will improve your mood and make you more alert. Even if it's not sunny, taking several short breaks throughout the day refreshes your energy and helps your brain focus.

It's also important to keep your heart healthy by scheduling down time on weekends and taking regular vacations. A study of people who didn't take vacations over a five-year period indicated a 32% greater risk of dying from coronary heart disease (over the next nine-year period) than those who got away at least once a year.

#4:  Chew some gum. Did you know the cultural habit of chewing gum dates back to the ancient Greeks popping wads of tree resin in their mouths to improve their breath? Recent studies indicate that chewing gum improves mental performance because it increases blood flow to the brain. Chew sugar-free gum to avoid a mid-afternoon crash.

For optimum performance, build all four of these habits into your lifestyle. You'll be more productive at work and have more energy to do active things with loved ones and friends.

Easter MUST be coming!!!!!
Save Hundreds On Electronics . . .
Do you want a bargain on your next cell phone, TV, computer, or digital camera? Then take advantage of the billions of dollars worth of brand name electronics that are returned to the stores each year. Many times there is nothing wrong with the product, a person simply changed their mind. But the store can no longer sell it as a "new" product.

Check the following websites to find electronics in nearly new condition that are classified as refurbished:; (click under "special deals" on the left side);; or

Be sure to take these cautious measures:
  • Learn how the manufacturer defines "refurbished." Most stores will tell you how they classify items. You can also search a manufacturer's website for information on how they get their refurbished products for sale, or email their support department.

  • Search for items that clearly have been returned unused because of 30-day return policies or products sold for a discount due to minor cosmetic damage. Make sure to get a good warranty and return policy.

  • Confirm that all the components of a new product are included. Go to the website of the manufacturer's new products to learn what should be included with your model of the item.

Ways To Treat Severe Back Pain . . .

Knowing what to do when you have that sudden bolt of back pain can shorten the episode significantly. Try this:
  • Lie down immediately in a bed or mattress on the floor to be comfortable.
  • Apply ice for 10 to 30 minutes.
  • Call your doctor or chiropractor.
     To prevent back injury:
  • Get up by rolling to your side first. On a bed, swing your legs over the edge. On the floor, get on your knees first and find assistance to rise up to standing.
  • CAUTION: Don't sit in your comfy, overstuffed chair. It can make the back pain worse. Sit only in a straight-back chair with arm rests to push off when you stand up.

Have A Laugh — "Curiosity Killed The Cat" . . .

A mother had finally lost her patience with her seven year old boy that was always asking questions.

She asked him, "Did you ever hear that curiosity killed the cat?"

Curious to hear the story, he asked her to tell him about the cat's demise.

"Well, there was a cat that was always inquisitive. One day, she peeked into a huge hole, slipped, fell in and died."

The seven year old then asked what was in the hole.

Brain Teaser Answer:
That allows the clock to only watch the last digit of time.
For example, you have the alarm clock set for 5:30 – the snooze alarm will sound when the last digit is nine. If they made it 10 minutes the alarm would sound immediately or the clock would
need more circuitry.

Real Estate Q & A . . .
Q.  I am thinking of selling my home later this year. What can I do to fix it up and net more from the sale?

A.  Remember when you put your home up for sale it becomes a product on display. Getting rid of clutter makes it easier for potential buyers to walk through the property and see themselves living there. You may also need to tackle a few home improvement projects to get a good price for your property.

Start with the walls. Freshly painted walls in a neutral color invite a potential buyer to imagine the home with their things in it. You want enough wall decoration to make your home attractive, but it is easy to overdo it. When removing wall decor to paint, leave most of it packed away.

Freshen up the kitchen. Kitchens often sell a home. You will want to make sure it is bright, clean and reasonably updated. Consider replacing the hardware or adding a new backsplash between the countertops and hanging cabinets. If you have to replace appliances, stainless steel is an option that offers clean lines and is easy to keep clean.

Enhance the curb appeal with neat, trim landscaping. Your home will likely be viewed on the internet before a buyer visits the property. A clean exterior makes better looking photos and helps your home look more valuable.
