THIS WEEK'S DEAR JOHN LETTER!
I love my neighborhood. It's close, we all get along great, and our kids all play together. But my new next-door neighbors have been a problem. We have a big outdoor Christmas display with inflatables and a nativity scene. The new neighbors have two little kids, and they've been coming over to play on our front lawn! And they move everything around. Last night, I found Baby Jesus wrapped in a blanket under a bush. And they put a hole in my inflatable Santa while wrestling with it. The kids are great. The neighbors are great. But I don't want these kids over here messing with our stuff. I have to fix it all every day! I mentioned it to their mom and she laughed and talked about how much her kids love Christmas and how cute it is that they love to play so much. Then she thanked me for being so nice and opening up our home to them. I know they're just kids, but these things are expensive. They're not toys. How do I deal with this without being a jerk? Any advice?

Did you ever stop to wonder how many people you know? Now, you don’t need to. The answer is 611, according to Tyler McCormick, a professor in the statistics and sociology departments at the University of Washington. That’s his best estimate, at least, for the average number of acquaintances that Americans have. If that sounds like way too many – or not nearly enough, here is a rule of thumb to go by: According to McCormick, to estimate the number of people you know, simply count the Michaels. He says there are more than 3million Americans named Michael, about 1% of the population. So, if you know 8 Michaels, you probably know about 800 people.

“cricketing” in order to fall asleep is a thing now. The term
“cricket feet” has over 53 million views on TikTok, where
sleepyheads are sharing videos of themselves explaining the technique
that leaves them feeling ‘snug as a bug’. What is cricketing?
These people swear that rubbing their feet together in bed — like a
cricket — helps ease them into a peaceful slumber. In one video, a
woman named Marissa shows herself doing the technique. Commenters
claim the ritual is “comforting” and “relaxing”, and a
physical therapist explains that the feet are loaded with nerve
endings and acupressure points, that, when stimulated, “help
regulate and calm your central nervous system.” LINK:

Kim Kardashian is moving from the small screen to the big one. The “Kardashians” star will produce and star in an upcoming female-driven comedy titled “The 5th Wheel.” Kardashian reportedly has been hands-on in the pitching for the film and even has attended each meeting to deliver her pitch. Although she has plenty of experience as a reality star, Kardashian has been spreading her wings into the scripted world. She recently starred in the “Delicate” season of “American Horror Story,” a role that earned her both praise and criticism from viewers.

According to a report, on the list of things that make you sleep, tryptophan is #2, just ahead of soft music.
In a poll, 70% of people said they’d rather stay at a hotel for the holidays, than with their family.
Sometimes, you just HAVE to tell a little white lie. And that’s definitely the case if you want to land that dream job, according to a professional recruiting manager. Bonnie Dilber, of Seattle, uploaded a video to her 1.1million TikTok viewers, where she covered her practices for landing a gig. In it, she advises followers to “save these choicest tall tales to tell”, and to “prepare your lies before every interview.” She says these are the 3 lies you must be willing to tell:
• “Do not tell them that your boss doesn’t like you. Don’t tell them that everyone is really hard to work with. All they’re going to hear is that you are difficult. Instead…say something like, ‘Things are going great, but I want to take on bigger challenges.’”
• When they ask why you want the job, don’t say you need a paycheck and benefits. That’s not unique. Instead, “Tell them why you are passionate about the company’s mission, why this job is your life’s work and why you are just such a good fit for the culture of this company.”
• And finally, when asked about your plans for the future, Dilber says you need to lie through your teeth. “I don’t care if…you are going to jump ship as soon as you find something better. When they ask you about your plans for the next 5 years, your plans are to be at the company, you’re plans are to come in, knock it out of the park on this role and continue to grow as opportunities arise.” LINK: https://tinyurl.com/jfz7x8km
