Whenever you read a newspaper or magazine are you drawn to the horoscope page? Millions of people are born on the same day- is it really possible to read something unique about yourself? The Barnum Effect is what psychologists describe as the temptation to read personal meanings into a general description. Sixty years later writers still rely on this observable human trait. Horoscopes say the same thing year after year, and people don’t even notice it. They give meaning to otherwise random events in our lives. If you can blame it on Mars or Saturn, one will feel less responsible for them. An example would be able to keep a job or a partner. Some people don’t like that events are random, so horoscopes offer people the comfort of predictability. With that in mind, I have attached work horoscopes for the New Year. Enjoy them and don’t look too much into them. Most importantly….do not rely on them..http://astrology.horoscope.com/horoscope/dailyhoroscope/index-career-horoscope.aspx
A great new side dish…
Thanksgiving is right around the corner. I thought I would hit one out of the park and give you all an amazing Macaroni and Cheese recipe. The recipe is such a hit I just had to share. Ever have those friends that find something great and like to keep it a secret…not me. Pasta and cheese casseroles have been included in cookbooks since the early 14th century. It was first found in an old medieval cookbook named Liber de Coquina and described as fresh hand-cut pasta sandwiched between a mixture of melted butter and cheese. Thomas Jefferson had his first encounter with macaroni while in both Paris and northern Italy. He even commissioned the American ambassador to Paris William Short to purchase a machine to make it. Long story short, Thomas didn’t think the machine was suitable enough so he imported a macaroni and cheese machine and served “macaroni pie” at a state dinner. As a result, in the United States July 14th was branded “National Macaroni and Cheese Day”. Getting back to my recipe, I actually didn’t make it up but found it searching on the web. http://www.terrancebrennan.com/pdfs/pastas/Macaroni%20and%20Cheese.pdf. I hope you all enjoy it and you don’t find it is too much work to make. Let me know how it was!!!
Happy Thanksgiving!!!! Enjoy!!!!!!
In some #workplaces dressing up for Halloween can be expected and considered part of the company’s culture. If you are a teacher, you wouldn’t want to be the teacher that does not participate or be a team sport. If you choose an inappropriate costume, you may put yourself in even more hot water. Waitstaffing at a restaurant may also be a job atmosphere that allows workers to dress up for Halloween. Keep in mind the image you portray in your costume may become part of your workplace persona long after Halloween passes. If you dress up as something with a political flair, be prepared to have some possible choice comments thrown your way. My advice is to keep politics out of the office. If the subject doesn’t feel right to discuss, it is probably not a great idea to dress up in that nature either.
The role you play will sometimes dictate whether or not you should dress up. If you are new to your #job, ask a co-worker or your #boss if people dress up or not. Bring in a baked good or other sweet to offer co-workers will sure win them over and make you feel part of the team. Below is a great article I read about #Halloween at the workplace. http://www.sfgate.com/business/article/Halloween-at-work-Don-t-let-costume-come-back-to-4927133.php
Enjoy!!! And don’t forget to make that yearly dental check-up on Friday!
