Homemade Christmas Ornaments - With the Christmas season fast approaching around the corner, it will soon be time to deck up those X’mas trees and whip up all those mouthwatering recipes. ’Tis the season to be jolly and time to go ‘ho ho ho’. ’Tis the time for decorations, loads of shopping and showering gifts on your loved ones.

This is the time when you get an opportunity to be creative! There’s nothing better than homemade decorations or gifts and it also adds to the personal touch. So when it comes to decorating your Christmas tree, you can start personalizing it in your own special way. Making homemade items is enjoyable and it also gets the entire family involved. Homemade Christmas ornaments are really fun to make and also give a warm feeling to the Christmas trees. This warmth and the glow that radiates around it can never ever be replaced by hanging ornaments bought off the shelf.

Homemade Christmas Ornaments

Let us take a quick look at some ways to have homemade Christmas ornaments:

* Use Mica tiles to display your family photographs! The front portion can showcase the picture where as the backside of the tile can be decorated using ribbons and paper, since the both the sides will be visible, once the tile is hung by a string or a chain. The edges of the tiles can also be decorated using colored paper and satin ribbons.
* Bring out those boxes full of Christmas cards and showcase them. This will not only be visually appealing but will also help you to cherish your good memories. You can cut them up into various shapes and hang them up on the tree!
* If you are really hard pressed for time, re-use your Christmas ornaments that were used the year before. You can wrap them up in colorful shiny paper or use glitter glue pens to decorate the outer surface.
* Dough can also be used, to create cute and zany shapes, which can be painted over once it dries. A little time consuming, they need to mold well to achieve the desired result. Mix salt in it to keep the insects at bay, which may prove to be a hindrance whilst it dries.

Urban Meyer Stepping Down

Urban Meyer Stepping Down - Well, it appears as if it’s deja vu all over again.

Less than 12 months after retiring and then un-retiring, Urban Meyer is apparently stepping down as Florida’s head coach. There’s no word on if he will be stepping back up tomorrow.

Urban Meyer Stepping Down

According to Todd Wright of Sporting News radio, GatorUpdates.com and AOL Fanhouse‘s Brett McMurphy Meyer will announce at a 5 p.m. ET press conference Wednesday that he is resigning/retiring as the Gators’ head coach. There are no further details available at this time, other than GatorUpdates reporting over the weekend that Meyer checked into a hospital the week of the UGA game and has been undergoing tests since.

Obviously, we’ll have more on this story throughout the day and well into the night…

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy - The mystery of Matt Cassel missing practice Wednesday coupled with the Kansas City Chiefs promoting quarterback Tyler Palko has been solved.

The team has announced that Cassel underwent an appendectomy on Wednesday morning. The Chiefs say they expect Cassel to return to work this week. Returning to work and being ready to perform well in the team’s biggest game of the season on Sunday against San Diego are two different things. ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting the Chiefs are viewing Cassel as being questionable to play in the game.

Clearly, this is terrible timing. The Chiefs are 8-4 and would take a major step toward the playoffs with a win over the Chargers. Cassel has played very well for the past two months. If he can’t play, the brittle Brodie Croyle would face the Chiefs in his first action of the season. Croyle last played in Week 13 of the 2009 season.

100-calorie Packs Diet

100-calorie Packs Diet - Did you know recent studies show chronic dieters tend to consume more calories when foods and packages are smaller? Consumer behavior was observed in the study regarding "mini-packs," 100-calorie food packages that are marketed to help people control calorie intake.

The study revealed that one group that over-consumes the mini-packs is chronic dieters - individuals making a conscious effort in trying to manage their weight and food intake.

This shows that the distorted perception of small packages may actually undermine dieters' attempts to limit calories.

Consider this: Consumers perceive the mini-packs to be a generous portion of food - numerous small food morsels in each pack and multiple mini-packs in each box - while on the other hand, consumers perceive the mini-packs to be diet food. For chronic dieters, this perceptual dilemma causes a tendency to overeat, due to their emotion-laden relationship with food.

In a series of focus group studi…
