Unlimited Time Off Exists!
Unlimited Time Off Exists!

How have you been feeling this February? Not to sound like a Debbie Downer, but I think February has to be one of the worst months of the year, and it’s even my birthday month! Either you’re fighting a cold or the flu, or you have crazy cabin fever. There’s no real holidays in sight and nothing really fun to do. I always love to use this time to plan a vacation, so at least I have something to look forward to, but could you imagine unlimited paid vacation time? A new study finds that employers could actually benefit from offering their employees unlimited vacation time! Right now, just one percent of U.S. companies are offering unlimited paid time off, and those companies are happy with their results. They report benefitting because employees were happy and healthier. They also reported saving administrative time and money by not having to track employee’s days off, and that employees don’t usually take advantage of the unlimited time off because they want to protect their reputations. Hmmm, win win! Although, something tells me that wouldn’t work for every business, but bosses if you’re reading this, think about it!

The woman who as a child was the basis for the Beatles song "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds" is gravely ill. It was thought by many at the time that the psychedelic song from Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Heart Club Band was a paean to LSD because of the initials in the title, but it was actually based on a drawing that John Lennon's young son Julian brought home from school. He told his father the drawing was of Lucy in the sky with diamonds. Lucy Vodden, now living in Surrey just outside of London _ drifted apart after schoolyard days, but they have gotten back in touch as Lennon has tried to help Vodden cope with Lupus, a life-threatening disease.
