Well, the weekend is here. Nothing but peace and relaxation for 48 hours, right? Nope. There are all those boring “adult’ responsibilities to look after — like groceries, laundry, looking after the kids…and feeding them…and of course CLEANING. And how much time does the average person devote to housecleaning? According to a new survey, we spend an average of 6 full days per year cleaning. The survey of 2,000 people in the US found that we feel that our home is “completely clean” for just 11 days of the year. Respondents said it takes them an average of 5 days to actually start cleaning after their home after they first decide it needs to happen. Other findings…

68% will devote an entire day to cleaning and sanitizing a specific room in their home.

63% say the kitchen gets an entire day devoted to its cleaning.

Other rooms people spend a full day in include the bathroom (57%), living room (57%), bedroom (47%) and home office (47%).

The top specific items that people said need to be cleaned and sanitized are, in order: rugs/carpets (68%), floors (63%) and clothing (57%).

Most people are familiar with déjà vu, when we wrongly believe we have previously experienced a situation. But fewer are aware that there is an opposite to déjà vu. “Jamais vu”, is when something you know to be familiar — feels unreal or novel in some way. In recent research by University of St. Andrews, which recently won an IG Nobel award for literature, it was explained that jamais vu may involve looking at a familiar face and finding it suddenly unusual or unknown. Or musicians have it momentarily – losing their way in a very familiar passage of music. You, too may have experienced it by going to a familiar place and becoming disoriented — or seeing it with “new eyes”.

Vanna White has signed on for 2 more years as cohost of “Wheel of Fortune,” and she’ll take home a lot more cash this time around, but apparently things are far from settled. TMZ quotes sources as saying she received a “substantial pay increase” from the $3 million per year she was making for nearly 2 decades. She had not gotten a raise for 18 years. The sources say her lawyer is mulling over a possible gender discrimination lawsuit against Sony, based on her disparity in pay with Pat Sajak’s. Sajak, who recently announced his retirement, makes a reported $15million per season.

Hallmark has announced its 40-movie holiday-season schedule. 31 will air on Hallmark Channel‘s Countdown to Christmas and 9 on Hallmark Movies & Mysteries’ Miracles of Christmas. The annual TV movie event will begin on Oct. 20. Countdown to Christmas is leaning into their international movies this year — with films in Germany, Norway, Scotland and France. It has also teased a “yuletide Easter Egg hunt” this year, with surprise appearances, and nods to past Hallmark hits.

The iconic stopwatch won’t be reset, but for 6 episodes this fall, “60 Minutes” will become 90 minutes – long. The CBS newsmagazine is stretching on some Sundays when CBS airs an NFL doubleheader, starting Oct. 8. Often, the show doesn’t air until 7:30 p.m. on the East Coast those nights (it usually starts at 7 p.m.). Sources say the decision came about before the strikes that have paralyzed Hollywood and left networks looking for more content.

Rescuers on Long Island, NY moved 5,000 pounds of concrete to save a mewing kitten that was stuck in a storm drain. Using large jacks, then a hydraulic rescue tool called the “Jaws of Life,” they were able to reach the kitten 30 feet down. “Lawrence” is doing fine now, in the care of a local veterinarian.

12-year-old Austen MacMillan was able to revive his behavioral therapist Jason Piquette after he partially drowned in a pool, by using CPR that he learned in an unconventional way. Austen told ABC News that he “saw it from a TV show—Stranger Things.” The whole ordeal was captured on a ring camera.

Former NFL great Warrick Dunn recently surprised a single mother and her daughter with a brand-new home in Baton Rouge LA, but it was just one of 218 residences that people have to thank him for. In the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, Dunn challenged all NFL players, except for those who play for the New Orleans Saints, to donate at least $5,000. The effort received over $5 million in contributions. In conjunction with Dunn’s charity, Habitat for Humanity, and Catholic High School where Dunn himself graduated, the homes were built, furnished, and stocked with food for their new residents.

A bank in Australia has decided to reimburse a 78-year-old who suffers with dementia after he was scammed out of nearly $500,000. The Australia and New Zealand Banking Group returned the cash to Alex Shaw after determining it should have been able to detect and stop the scammers before they pilfered every last cent of the depositor’s life savings.

The genealogy company Ancestry is getting into the dog business. Ancestry has just launched it’s first “Know Your Pet DNA” kit, which it says is the most scientifically advanced dog DNA test out there. It works just like a human DNA kit. You swab your dog’s inner cheek for 30 seconds, and send the sample back to Ancestry. When the results are ready, you’ll receive a dashboard revealing your dog’s breed mix, inherited traits, and matches with other dogs. It can also give you an indication of dog relatives in your area, help you discover breed personalities, and offer insights into behavioral traits. They say the Know Your Pet DNA kit is perfect for those wanting to uncover the background of their rescue dogs, and for owners who just want to understand what makes their dog tick.

If you’re having trouble finding that special someone, try embracing your inner nerd. That’s advice from a survey of 2,000 Gen Z and millennial singles. One-third said people should embrace their “cringey” habits, rather than avoid them. Not only that, 63% agreed that embracing your “cringe” could even help you find “the one.” Now, remember: What’s cringey to one person, might seem pretty cool to another. So, it’s all subjective – but nearly half (47%) of today’s singles consider themselves more cringe than cool. Two in 3 said they find it attractive when dates are their authentic selves. And 74% find it attractive when a date shares things they ‘nerd out’ about – like personal passions or a specific, niche hobby.

An etiquette expert says that, like anything, the accepted norms of using a phone are changing. As a result, according to Lizzie Post, of the Emily Post Institute, these days, you should always text before calling someone…and NEVER leave a voicemail, unless it’s for business – or for someone who really wants to hear your voice, like Grandma. Why text someone first? Calling someone without warning can feel stressful to the recipient. This is doubly important for video calls. Catching someone on video at an unexpected time can be embarrassing for all involved.

The Masked Singer” is celebrating its 10th season with some help from a member of newly reunited *NSYNC, a star of “The Office,” and several famous alums. Lance Bass and Kate Flannery (who played ‘Meredith’ on The Office) are among the show’s special surprise clue-givers this season. Will they have any connection to those who are competing? That remains unclear for now, but, hey – anything’s possible. Kelly Osbourne, who competed as ‘Ladybug’, will also give out clues this season, along with NFL free agent DeSean Jackson, “Snake Oil” host David Spade, and ‘Poppy’ and ‘Branch’ from “Trolls”.

The CBS premiere of the Paramount Network hit “Yellowstone” drew in 6.6 million viewers, making it the most-watched entertainment program of the week, according to Nielsen figures. The Yellowstone debut also averaged a 0.9 rating among adults 25-54. The premiere scored the largest audience for a scripted series since the “NCIS” series finale in May.

If you have a pile of old VHS tapes stored away in the attic or basement (or even if they’re still proudly displayed in your living room…), you might be sitting on a fortune. Many are going for a shocking amount of money these days. Here are a few examples VHS movies that are up for grabs right now on eBay…

• “Back to the Future” (1989): $14,080

• “Gremlins” (1986): $4,500

• “The Fast and the Furious” (2002): $1,250

• “Pinocchio” (1993): $10,000

• “The Goonies” (1986): $125,000

Keep in mind, though, that just because you have an old movie on video-cassette doesn’t mean you’re going to get rich. To sell for a princely sum, the condition must be top-notch – not only in appearance, but it also should have been stored over the years in an area that is not to hot or humid.

Must-know stuff about “must see” TV…

Seinfeld: Jerry Seinfeld wanted to end the show after its 9th season (1997-98). NBC wanted one more season – and the show’s star turned them down – along with an estimated $110million.

Friends: Yes, David Schwimmer co-starred as paleontologist Dr. Ross Geller. Unbeknownst to the show’s creators, there was a real-life Ohio paleontologist named Dr. David R. Schwimmer.

Quantum Leap: Of the 96 times Sam (Scott Bacula) “leaped” through time, every year he visited was between 1953-1987, including trips into the bodies of Lee Harvey Oswald, Elvis, and Dr. Ruth.

3rd Rock From the Sun: Over its 6 seasons, NBC changed its time-slot 15 times – a TV record.

Full House: It was unexpectedly canceled in 1995 after 8 seasons. Why? ABC planned to sell the show to WB Network. John Stamos didn’t like the idea and threatened to walk – and the deal was scrapped.

Northern Exposure: Marilyn, the near-silent receptionist, was portrayed by Elaine Miles. And she never meant to be an actress. She accompanied her mother to an audition – and producers asked her if she was interested.

NYPD Blue: Acclaimed for its realism, it was also the first show to routinely feature obscured nudity. Of the 24 regular cast members over 12 seasons, only Bill Brochtrup never appeared nude, semi-nude, or in revealing clothing.

Dear John,

I'm 17. My mom listens to your show every day and loves you guys. So I'm calling her out about what she did on our recent vacation. Our family went on a vacation together. It was a great trip, but when she booked our flights, my mom and dad were in first class and she stuck me and my 9-year-old brother in back with strangers. It's not like we can't afford it. My dad makes a ton of money and we have always flown first-class before. I asked what was up with this, and mom said it's time I learned not to be so elitist. She says I don't appreciate how the real world works. And I'm not happy. I think this is ridiculous. And I told her. She did not react well. What's going on here? Am I wrong in thinking this is simply cruel?

It may not come as a surprise to you to hear this, but according to a poll, a majority of young adults think proper spelling just doesn’t matter anymore. Nor does punctuation, it would seem, at least when using social media and messaging platforms. In the survey of 2,000 Gen Z, it was found that less than a quarter use periods, commas, and quotation marks in their casual communications. For comparison, more than half of people (55%) over the age of 65 say they’re very conscientious about using proper grammar while texting or posting online. The younger adults were found to be likely to use correct punctuation in text messages (69%). But on social media platforms like Snapchat and TikTok, less than 10% bother with that stuff. Just a quarter of those between 18-24 use capital letters correctly, compared to 61% of seniors. And just 16% of Gen Z always use periods at the end of sentences.

A recent study found those who drink 2-3 cups of coffee daily have a lower risk of depression and anxiety. The research, published in Psychiatry Research last month, also found that people who drank more than 6 cups daily were found to have a higher risk of depression and anxiety. Those who drank 1-2 cups of daily had a slightly lower risk of developing depression and anxiety, — not as low as those who consumed 2-3 cups per day. Researchers said caffeine is believed to be the factor that influences mental health.

A new anti-obesity drug could allow you to lose weight — and eat anything you want! Scientists say they have discovered what they call an “obesity switch” in the brain. It controls a cluster of neurons in the brain that regulates fat expenditure. The researchers at the Institute for Basic Science in Korea say this could lead to the end of obesity for a billion people worldwide. The team says it has already conducted successful animal trials of a new drug, which helped mice lose weight without cutting down on food intake.

After 10 seasons, “The Masked Singer” is getting a panel shake-up — but it should only be temporary. Rita Ora will be stepping in for Nicole Scherzinger for Season 11. The change comes as Scherzinger prepares to star in the West End revival of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s “Sunset Boulevard.” Performances begin this month, and the show is set to run for 16 weeks. But that conflicts with the filming of Season 11 of The Masked Singer, so in steps Ora, who is no stranger to the show, being an alum of “The Masked Singer UK.”

TikTok – is there anything it can’t do? A new viral ketchup bottle hack has showed up on the site, showing a “genius” way to be sure you get every last drop of the red nectar of the gods. Content creator Casey Rieger posted her test of the “life hack” with a bottle of ketchup. At the start of the 24-second video, she says: “OK, I saw someone do this on TikTok and I thought it was genius. So, I’m going to give it a try.” She explains how most of us simply tap the closed cap of the bottle with open hand in an attempt at getting the last bit of ketchup. Rieger then demonstrates the method she has seen, proceeding to spin her left arm in a counterclockwise motion as she holds the ketchup bottle from its base. She spins the bottle 7 times, then shows her TikTok followers that the movement pushed the condiment down the bottleneck toward the cap. She finishes the video, saying: “How cool is that, right?” The vid has over 22.7 million views, 2.3 million likes and over 27,000 comments. LINK:

Just in time for fall and winter sniffles, the US Food and Drug Administration has decided that phenylephrine, a popular ingredient in oral cold and allergy medications doesn’t work…and oral medications containing it may eventually be pulled from the shelves. So, what are the alternatives when cold symptoms hit? Here are some expert suggestions…

Sinus irrigation: By sending water with a salt solution through your sinuses, neti pots and similar devices remove mucus and inflammatory products. (And also give you that wonderful childhood feeling of submerging yourself in water, upside-down!)

Warm compresses, hot showers and hydration: They make it easier for your nose to stay at the state it needs to keep the mucus flowing. (Ewww…..)

Getting good sleep: If you’re not sleeping well, your body has reduced ability to fight infection. If you have to breathe through your mouth at night, use a humidifier to keep the air warm and moist, and elevate your head.

Spicy foods: It’s true – they actually help, through a chemical called capsaicin. As you know, if you eat something spicy, your nose runs. And that helps drain mucus from your sinuses.

Chicken soup: NO! NOT in your neti-pot! A study in 2018 found there could be an anti-inflammatory property to chicken soup that reduces cold symptoms. Another found the spices and steam can be helpful to clearing sinuses.
