Ugg Boots May Cause Knee Damage-Choose your everyday boots carefully or your knees could pay the price.
Experts warn that soft boots like Uggs don’t offer enough support and may lead to a bad posture, knee pain and even back pain, which could need surgery. By the way, the longer you wait to see if your knees are okay, the more damage is done. The fix is to get an exam and imaging.
If you already have back or other structural issues, you may want to opt for a more supportive shoe.
Ugg responded with this release: "UGG is the leader in premium sheepskin footwear. The UGG Classic boot provides the full experience of warmth, comfort and flexibility.Source: Sun

Have You Ever Worked Out While Intoxicated? Drunk Yoga?
One yoga instructor in New York is offering up evenings of tipsy yoga. Why? Because “one is more flexible when drunk.” Eli Walker teaches a basic vinyasa class alongside an open bar with unlimited wine at Grey Lady in lower Manhattan. For $30, students get an hour-long yoga class, and as much of the good stuff as you can stomach while attempting to hold a crow pose. “For those of you who are hesitant to try yoga for fear of ‘looking silly,’ this class is for you,” the official Facebook page beckons. “Come, drink wine, try yoga with other beginners, and by all means…look silly!”

These 26 Life Hacks, Involving Everyday Objects, Are Actually Pretty Doable

Stove Top Has The Perfect Solution For Those Who Stuff Themselves On Thanksgiving
While many people likely try to look their best for family on Thanksgiving, the truth is we’d all be happier in clothes we felt comfortable in, especially since we’ll be gorging our faces off and tight fitting clothes will just feel worse once the meal is over.
Well, with that in mind, Stove Top Stuffing is now selling the perfect pair of pants for your Thanksgiving meal, and you may want to get them for dad if he's one of those guys who likes to unbotton his belt after dinner.
Stove Top’s Thanksgiving Dinner Pants have a stretchy pouch, or what they call a “stuffin’-stretch waistband,” that fits over the belly, similar to maternity wear, although they are decorated in a festive stuffing pattern. And you can certainly stuff yourself silly, since they expand to “two-times the original size.” Plus they are cheap. They come in all sizes and only cost $19.95. Check out a video advertising Stove Top’s pants to the right and click here to buy them.

Phrases To Avoid At The Holiday Meal
With the stress of the holidays and maybe a glass or two of wine, family gatherings can lead to tense moments during dinner conversations. We can’t stop someone else from saying the wrong thing, but we can all agree to stay away from certain subjects so things don’t get too uncomfortable around the table. Here are some phrases we should avoid at holiday dinners so we can all have a good time.
“You should have…” - The word “should” just makes us feel the judgment and disappointment, so avoid all that negativity and use “could” instead when you can.
“Can you believe what [insert name of detested elected official or political party here] just did?” - You know better than to bring up politics in mixed company, especially at the Thanksgiving dinner table. Unless you’re looking for a heated debate, just don’t do it.
“The best turkey I ever had was…” - Be a polite guest, not a food critic. Holiday meals are not the time to talk about how a dish could’ve been prepared better or to compare meals you’ve had in the past. You’re better off focusing on how tasty the meal in front of you is and how much you appreciate it.
“Did you hear about…?” - It’s easy to slip into gossip mode, but try to steer the conversation back to something positive instead of dogging cousin Joe who escaped to Florida instead of coming to family dinner.
“When are you going to…” - Try not to make anyone feel defensive or put on the spot and if you’re the one in the hot seat, try to deflect with humor and a smile as you change the subject.
“Remember the time you…” - Holiday dinners aren’t the time to bring up unflattering stories about loved ones, even if you think the story is hilarious. If someone brings up a mistake from the past, try saying “I’m so glad we can look back and laugh about it now.”
