Around the Net – Links I’ve Enjoyed This Week

This is so true.  I am still learning and I will be learning for a very, very long time……. at least I hope to be.

This week, there were a few things on the inter webs that are worth mentioning (as if I were the expert of all things worth mentioning ha!)

Surveillance laws passed in England and it appears that British citizens are not happy about the government snooping in their business.  Without getting too political (and only because I happen to think we have had enough) I am a bit torn about these laws.  I see their point but I see how they are intrusive as well.  Anywhoooooo!!! good article.

Staying in the same vein did you see this article about the burning of the flag and what President Elect Trump announced?  Again….. I’m torn (I’d make a horrible politician) I can see how it’s annoying and an insult to all those people who have fought so hard and lost so much for our country, but ….. the ability to freely express oneself is very dear to all of us and so much engrained in the fabric of our country.  I am not sure there’s anything we can do about it without embarking on a slippery slope.

Ok so another controversial article …. Buzzfeed had an article just recently about how men deal with powerful women.  Did you guys see the Netflix show “The Crown?” if you didn’t you must stop reading right now and go watch it…. promise you’ll come back for the rest of this post though.  Anyway, It was obvious that Prince Phillip had an issue with his wife, Queen Elizabeth, being the Queen and having more power than him.  In all the episodes you were a witness to how much that bothered him….. I even mentioned on my twitter account, or maybe I thought it out loud, that I didn’t even realize that’s how he felt because that’s not how it appears in public.  I wonder when it changed?  So, Buzzfeed apparently thinks that this jealousy that Prince Phillip felt is still prevalent in today’s society?  Do you agree?

From serious subjects to subjects that warm your heart... .Not only because Matthew McConaughey is OMG super handsome but also because his heart is in the right place.

In business related issues, I found this two great articles.  The first is a list of the five best business books.  Two of my favorite subjects, lists and books…… Ok, wait, let me absorb the awesomeness of those two words.  And the second, because it’s the end of the year and we are all scrambling to get a better promotion at work……. What do the best performers ask when taking on a new job?  

Lastly, how about cookies and booze?  Two other words that should always be used in the same sentence.  I am going to leave you with these recipes that are going to make your Holidays ohhhh so HoHoHo!!!!!!
