Chatelaine Radio NoPhone Addiction

Posted on by Christina Rowsell

by Christina Rowsell @radiochristina

Here’s an interesting way for you to ween yourself off your addiction to your smartphone.
It’s called the “NoPhone”, created by a group of Dutch and Amercian inventors, and it works as a “stand-in”.
It looks and feels like a smartphone, but it just doesn’t work.  Well that’s no fun!
It works as a placebo, helping people stay calm, despite not having access to Facebook, text messaging or Twitter.

no social media
Hmmmm maybe we should just try rehab instead.  Same idea!

Visa Canada says the National average for a child under 13 from the Tooth Fairy is $2.80 per tooth.

Here in Alberta, the average comes in at $3.12.

The highest payout for a tooth is in Atlantic Canada, with the average of $3.46.

Unless you are at my house.  My son had to get his first 2 teeth pulled by the dentist!  The Tooth Fairy felt bad so she left $10/per tooth!  I told my son that the Tooth Fairy is broke so when the next teeth get loose to wiggle and wiggle and wiggle until they come out!   How much does the Tooth Fairy pay at your house?

Chatelaine Radio Wedding Bliss

Posted on by Christina Rowsell

A small wedding might make more financial sense… But a new study suggests, you might be better off with a big bash.
The report published by the National Marriage Project at the University of Virginia finds, couples who opt for big formal weddings with 150 guests or more, have a better shot at a happy marriage.
Researchers looked at 1-thousand unmarried Americans over a period of five years.
They found, 47 % of those who went on to tie the knot in a big formal ceremony reported having a high quality marriage in the years that followed.
Now do you think it’s because they’re happier…. Or is it because they know how expensive the first one cost they don’t want to do it again?  Just wondering….

Chatelaine Radio Grilled Watermelon

Posted on by Christina Rowsell

by Christina Rowsell @radiochristina

The method for grilling watermelon is simple: use oil and seasoning, adding whatever flavours you choose to accompany it. I chose to make grilled watermelon with fresh basil, balsamic and cracked black pepper – and it’s awesome! Because watermelon has such a high water content it works best to let the slices sit on a few layers of paper towel to absorb the surface water, which will let the oil adhere better. Also, leave the rind on while you grill to make it easier to flip.
