Happy Friday! Hope you all had a great week like all the coffee distributors and fans who heard yet another reason why it’s a good idea to drink coffee. I know, I know, there aren’t as many benefits from drinking tea. Sigh. Maybe it’s time to try it, again?
Well, even if you aren’t all that fond of coffee, it’s Friday, friends! That means it’s also time to sit back with your favorite beverage and check out another “5 Things.” Enjoy!
A recent cancer drug trial resulted in 100% remission for all participants. Definitely one of the coolest things that I’ve heard all week! It’s also neat how the treatment works with the body’s natural immunity. Maybe the world is getting closer to a cure?
This “Million Dollar” cake recipe has been passed down by the family of The Great American Baking Show winner Vallery Lomas. It’s always neat to get a glimpse of time-honored family recipes. Of course, they had me at crushed pineapple filling and cream cheese frosting. Yum!
Some 70 companies in the UK are taking part in an experimental 4-day work week. The ultimate goal of this trial is to see whether employees are capable of being just as productive in 4 days as in 5. With the recent 3-day Memorial Day weekend in the rear view mirror, it seems possible. I’m definitely curious to see the final data!
Mental Floss recently published a list of the “The 15 Best-Selling Book Series of All Time.” Unsurprisingly, Harry Potter took the #1 spot but some much-beloved series from my own childhood and a famous lawyer series also made the cut. Definitely a fun list!
And, speaking of books, Eric Otis Simmons’ recent interview at The Creative Penn offers some advice about getting self-published works into libraries.
Okay, that’s all for now. Have a wonderful weekend, everyone, and remember to pray for Ukraine!
