Unemployed seeking help in Modesto, Roseville

ROSEVILLE, CA -  A new series of job workshops are set to begin Tuesday morning at the Roseville Connections Center.  Over the past two years, about 400 people have attended the workshop.  And according to those who run the event, 78% of the attendees found jobs with the average salary being $55,000 per year.

The workshop pairs the unemployed with employers.  Attendees are taught the importance of social media, networking, and how it all plays a role in landing a job.

Organizers call their approach different and unique.

They also work with the underemployed, such as those who may have had hours scaled back, or are working part-time when they should be working full-time.

The workshop is meant for those interested in mid to upper level management.  The average age of the attendees is 48.

Most Inappropriate Carnival Ride Ever

Most Inappropriate Carnival Ride Ever

Hi! I know it’s been FOREVER. And instead of vomiting all over the page I thought I’d share something slightly disturbing.

Last weekend the hubs, Bronwyn and I went to BerryFest in Roseville. It’s a Strawberry Festival which included a kid’s fun zone. I saw a giant inflatable slide and thought “Bronwyn would love that”. Until I saw its theme.

Let’s just say there was no sliding for us. I refuse to let my child play on something symbolizing that much death and destruction.....

First You Have to Crack Some Eggs

First You Have to Crack Some Eggs

Jack helped me make brownies today. He'd never really helped me in the kitchen before (not that I actually do that much cooking anyway), so I thought it was time he at least learned how to crack an egg. I helped him with the first egg. Thought if I showed him just how much (how little?) force you actually need to crack an egg he'd get the idea. First egg went great. Second egg: barely tapped it enough to crack it, so when he tried to pull the shell apart, the whole egg went splat on the floor. Much giggling and hilarity ensued. Also gagging. Raw eggs are kind of gross. Especially if you've never handled one before.

Eventually we had two eggs, sans shells, in a small bowl and were able to proceed.
