THIS WEEK'S DEAR JOHN LETTER!
I went out with my group of friends for an end of summer dinner and drinks a few weeks back, and the ordering got a little out of control. We had a blast but the bill got pretty high. We agreed to each pay our own bill, but I got some appetizers and many drinks... my bill was just under $150 and that was before the tip. My credit card is getting close to maxed out, and I didn't have my debit card with me. I never seem to have cash. But I did have a $30 gift card to a grocery store a few blocks from the restaurant. So I left the gift card as a tip and wrote a note saying, "This is a $30 gift card." When I told my boyfriend, he said I should have borrowed some money from my friends. He says it was a low-class move. He said I need to go back to the restaurant and make it right. I SO don't want to do that. Plus, I don't think it's all that bad. Right? Was it wrong to leave a $30 gift card for a tip?

If you are one of those people who hide their old photos you might want to dig them out for a change. According to researchers at UK’s Open University, flipping through personal photos can boost your mood more than eating a chunk of chocolate or drinking a glass of wine!

Researchers say they have come up with a sure-fire cure for jet-lag – and you’re going to love it. Simply eat a big breakfast once you reach your destination, say scientists at Northwestern University and the Santa Fe Institute. They built a mathematical framework to determine how travelers can best reset themselves in a new time zone. What they determined is that constantly shifting meal schedules, or having a meal at night can lead to misalignment between internal clocks. Jet lag, which can lead people to struggle with their sleep, experience fatigue, impact people’s mood and even cause stomach issues, is felt when a person’s circadian system is offset by changing time zones. They say that beginning the day with a hearty breakfast can help travelers reset their circadian rhythm.

77-year-old Cher says she has no plans to cut her hair or stop wearing jeans as she ages. On “Good Morning Britain”, the fashion icon announced: “I just can’t believe I will be 80 at some point, sooner than I wish…And I will still be doing the same stuff I’ve always done.” Cher credited her “pretty amazing” genes with keeping her looking youthful. Quote: “I don’t know if not feeling old makes you younger. I’m not sure. I keep up with the trends.”
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are apparently looking to settle in Malibu. Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have been house hunting in the California city, according sources, in order to still be close to Hollywood, with more privacy and security than their current Montecito home. The couple reportedly spent part of their long weekend touring an $8million plot of land where a new mansion is being built. It’s reported that the 6-acre plot already has a guard house in front, a long driveway and a pool. It is expected that Harry and Meghan would assume $10 million in construction costs for the mansion itself. That would make it worth only a few million more than their current home, which they bought for around $14 million in 2020.
