#Grammys

§     The Grammy Awards are January 26th at the Staples Center in LA.

 

#Sneakers

§     Study: Expensive sneakers make you exercise more.

§     What a great excuse for a splurge!

§     People that spend an average of $86 on shoes log five to seven days a week of exercise at the gym, while those spending around $80 spend three to four days there.

§     Those who spend less than $79 work out just once or twice a week.

§     Nearly 3 in 4 men wear luxury or designer sneakers during their workouts, along with 69% of females.

 

#CarryOn

§     As the holiday travel season is about to kick off, the TSA is delivering a PSA about the holiday foods you can and can’t bring in a carry-on.

§     The general rule is that if you can spray it, spread it, pump it or pour it, it should go in your checked bag.

§     Cheese can go in your checked bag as long as it is hard…creamy cheeses that are spreadable like brie and burrata are treated like liquids.

§     Main-course meets are good to go…even whole birds and live lobsters.

§     Mashed potatoes are ok because they are mashed up solids.

§     Unfortunately the gravy has to stay…it is treated like a liquid so you can take 3.4 ounces or less.

§     Other things that can come on board with you include pie, cranberry sauce, green bean casserole and stuffing.

 

#FridaBalls

§     Getting kicked in the ol’ Bojangles is an unfortunate side effect of being a dad.

§     Whether it happens when carrying the baby or when playing with an excited toddler, dads’ nether regions can really take a beating.

§     Now there’s a pair of underwear that claims it can protect dads’ area from injury.

§     Made by the company FridaBaby, FridaBalls is a pair of underwear with a reinforced area to protect the family jewels.

§     They sell for $27.99 a pair.
