Yesterday, the results of a Gallup, Inc. poll showed that just 27 percent of the world’s workers are employed full-time, with the figure in North America slightly higher (41 percent). According to the Wall Street Journal:
In unveiling the new metric, Gallup chairman Jim Clifton described the effort as a way to count the number of “good jobs” around the world. “In what is perhaps the world’s most pressing problem today, of the 5 billion people age 15 or older, 3 billion want a good job, but there are only 1.2 billion of them to go around,” he wrote. Existing data “lump the lousy jobs together with the good ones. … Do you think Guatemala’s unemployment rate is really 4%? Or that Iran’s is 15%?

Ever ask, ‘Where is all my money going?’ You should be asking the genie… the diaper genie that is. That is where its going. The best money saving option for diapering our little loves is cloth of course. It is 1/3 of the cost of disposable diapers and so much better for the environment. For those of us that prefer the disposables, there are cheaper options. I have researched many stores and sites. Babies ‘r’ Us is great when they have a sale, but keeping up with their sales and coupons is a full time job. Its easy when all you are doing is expecting your baby, but when baby is here, time is at a premium. Go to this site www.diapers.com I love this site! I can order diapers while I am holding my baby, in bulk which is way less expensive. They have partnered with four other sites that have house products, groceries, pet products and also toys. I almost always buy a little extra something for my boy. You can have it shipped together which is why you almost never pay for shipping. if you spend more than $50, and its there on your doorstep in 2 days… aaaah.. convenience.. Gotta go change another diaper bye Mommas !!!
