Want to win a Solatube Daylighting System AND Glass Distractions fixture of your choice? Just start answering these trivia questions.
The theme is sunlight. How many glasses milk would you need to equal the same amount of Vitamin D produced by only 20 minutes of sunlight exposure? (Hint: We posted this previously as a “fun fact of the day.”)

Please email your answer to by end of day Monday, Dec. 19. Thanks!!


Absolutely not! This is one of the biggest problems with social media, putting up with all of the nonsense that people insist on sharing, and not just on Twitter.

Another issue besides inane subject matter is frequency. We don’t need updates multiple times in an hour or even every hour or several times daily. Only when there is something either very interesting, entertaining or of value to share. Otherwise, I, for one, am totally tuning you out and then removing you from my world.

Some of us sensitive souls might feel bad “unfriending” or “unfollowing” annoying people on social media, but I look at it like this: Isn’t it a little like staying in an abusive relationship if yoI don’t? Verbally abusive, I mean.

Relationships are a privilege and a gift and if another person can’t be respectful of that, they don’t deserve to have one with you.
