Do you pay attention during those conference calls or do you drift elsewhere?  Most say the lack of supervision during those calls has then doing emails, texting or checking social media.  Some even on-line shop on conference calls which is not the kind of multi-tasking the boss had in mind.

How would you feel  if your neighbors could dictate what you can and cannot do to your home?  Metro Council has passed a new law with a set of guidelines that deal with how large and tall a home can be.  Residents have to request the overlay to apply it to their block or neighborhood.  Supporters say it would help preserve the neighborhoods character.

Yawning, we all do it, but why.  Scientists say when our brains get hot, that’s nature’s way of cooling it down.   That’s one reason why you may find yourself doing it more during the summer.  Yawning is also contagious, especially when we’re in the company of family and friends.

Between work, the kid’s activities and all that, we’re down to spending only about an hour a day relaxing.  The latest poll also finds that two-thirds of us say we’d be more relaxed if we didn’t have any electronic gadgets or internet access.  About 28 per cent get stressed out at the thought of relaxing.

The largest freshman class ever at Belmont University is settling in on campus.  This is the schools welcome week and more than 1700 students are expected to participate in a service project at 13 sites across Nashville.  Belmont also opened a new 186,000 square foot academic center in time for fall classes.

If you are not getting any satisfaction when you deal with customer service, change the approach.  Being polite and using please and thank you can go a long way.  Also take notes in case there is follow up contact and if you are emailing a complaint, be brief.  Shorter is better.

Nothing like the smell bacon when it’s being cooked up, but that may be an aroma we don’t get as often.  A deadly virus has wiped out 10% of the entire U.S. herd of pigs and that has bacon at an all time high of 6.11 per pound.  If that keeps up we may just be doing LT’s instead of BLT’S.

After a loss to the Saints over the weekend, the Titans are now 1 and 1 in the pre-season.  Up next is a trip to Atlanta to take on the Falcons Saturday night.
