What do we Adults do at Work All Day? Kids Tell You [Video]

What do we adults do at work all day? That is a very good question. We all think we're being productive, right? We work hard and may have hectic days, but at the end of the day we hope we have accomplished something.

A group of kids were asked to explain what they thought adults do all day at work, and boy, did they ever. Kids' CBC of Canada then hired a group of actors to act out their hilarious explanations. This is very good.

Breakfast Out is Fun and Delicious in Grand Rapids

Breakfast , they say, is the most important meal in the day. That's why on the weekends, my wife Kathy and I love going out for breakfast. Not that the Rent kitchen isn't a good one.
