A Big Change With KFC
When was the last time you ate at KFC?

Okay, I guess I'm the only one that can say recently!

Well KFC is about to change it up and jump into the UPSCALE RESTAURANT business.
They've announced a new restaurant called "KFC Eleven," and they're going to open it next month near their headquarters in Louisville, Kentucky.
The "eleven" is a reference to the 11 herbs and spices . . . even though you WON'T be able to get their regular fried chicken.  It'll only serve flatbreads with toppings, rice bowls, salads, and boneless chicken.
Also, the restaurant WON'T feature Colonel Sanders in its logo.
KFC is opening the new restaurant to compete with chains like Chipotle and Panera, which charge a little more than fast food restaurants but also have a reputation for serving better, higher quality food.
If the first KFC Eleven does well, they plan on opening at least one more location within a year. 

What do you think?  Is it a good idea?  Would you go?

The Reason Mosquitos Bite Some People More Than Others
Are you like me and you feel like Musquitos bite you more than everybody else?

Well every summer I just get bit up, and I always wonder why!

Dr. Phil Koehler with the University of Florida says your metabolism and your unique body chemistry play important roles in determining whether or not mosquitos are more attracted to you.

Koehler says, "Also, there's evidence that your degree of attractiveness to mosquitos can change over time."

Koehler says that previous research has shown mosquitos prefer blood type O, are 500-times more active during a full moon, are highly attracted to the smell of dirty feet, and often bite people who just drank a beer or are pregnant more often than a sober or not pregnant person.

Why do you think we get bit more than others?

The Brands With The Highest Buzz
What restaurant have you enjoyed the most so far this year?

Well something called the YouGov BrandIndex Rankings has revealed which brands got the best public "buzz scores" between January and June of 2013.

The Buzz scored range from -100 to 100 and reflect how people surveyed answered questions about what they've heard about brands in the "last two weeks" and if what they heard was positive or not.

The casual dining restaurants with the highest Buzz scores were: Olive Garden, Red Lobster, and Applebees.

I totally understand OG and Red Lobster, but Applebees surprises me.

The beverages and snacks with the highest buzz scores were V8, Coca-Cola, and Ocean Spray.

What about you, what brands would you give the highest buzz scores too?

Men Are Only Willing To Do This For 26 Minutes!

Do you like shopping?

What's the store you shop at most?

For me the answer are yes, and I probably spend the most $ each year at Target... even though I'm only intending to pick up a few items, you know how it goes.

According to a new survey, the thing men hate doing with their wife or girlfriend most of all is . . . SHOPPING! 

But ladies, you have a window.  Because even though they hate it, men are willing to put up with it for 26 minutes.  After that, they get bored, and they're ready for shopping to be DONE.    
That's a problem, because the average woman says shopping only gets boring for her after TWO HOURS.  

I find that we'll put up with more if it's a store for both genders, but when it's a store like Michael's I get really bored!
Half of all men said that they try to avoid shopping with their woman whenever possible . . . and one in four guys have LEFT her at the mall and driven home after they couldn't take it anymore.   
Half of men wander around the store after they get bored . . . one in three guys go outside to wait . . . and one in five kill time by CHECKING OUT OTHER WOMEN in the store.   

The 2 things I would do if I had a store is have a highly visible area or areas with TV's for the guys to sit and wait (there'd be food & drinks for sale if possible) also I'd make sure there was more seating near dressing rooms!

What about you, what would you do?

The Reason You're Costing Us Billions!
Have you gone into work hungover lately?  

My money is on YES considering the fact that we just had Summerfest!

According to a new study, every drink you have this week costs your company $1.37 because you're doing less work when you're HUNGOVER the next day.  
And getting drunk costs our economy about $220 BILLION a year, about $1.90 per drink. 

Here's the breakdown of costs:  
1.  72% of the cost is from the decreased productivity of people who show up for work with a HANGOVER.  That's about $158 BILLION . . . or $1.37 per drink.
2.  11% . . . or 21 cents a drink . . . is from healthcare costs for alcohol-related health problems.
3.  9% . . . or 17 cents a drink . . . is from alcohol-related crime.
4.  6% . . . 11 cents a drink . . . is from accidents related to drunk-driving. 

The thing is, I can't beat you up for this, because I'd rather you came in hungover than called in sick everytime!
