Learning to write, speak, express, and socialize well are some of the most valuable items a person can conquer. They aren’t easily learned, oftentimes taking lots of time and pain to master, but once properly accomplished, they can benefit both your personal and professional life in so many ways.
Let’s start with writing. Since I began learning the art of creating stories, I’ve been enduring a crash course in grammar, language, punctuation, and dialogue. Anytime I sit down to place together a series of words, I make a repetitive, conscious effort to spell check, re-read, re-examine,... Read More
Their symptoms are just as real as what women go through in “menopause”, and “andropause” is just as taboo, if not more so. Talking about ones change of life, be they male or female, and all its myriad issues, is by far the most difficult conversation to have, even among [close] couples that have been married many years.
The symptoms of Andropause experienced by men will vary: decreased energy and libido (lack of interest in sex and/or erectile dysfunction due to low testosterone levels) obvious muscle aches, not able to get a good night’s sleep, and, yes, even hot flashes, night sweats... Read More
If you're having problems getting into the site it isn't you, it's Twitter or for some a vast, right-wing conspiracy.
Twitter reports in a blog post, from 2 hours ago, that “some users may be experiencing issues accessing Twitter.” The company says engineers are working to “resolve the issue.” Twitter’s Developers site reports that there is a “service disruption.” Users have reported issues throughout the afternoon and they are continuing into the evening.
The social collaboration site experienced extremely high traffic when Barack Obama was publicly sworn in as president.... Read More
A woman knows when she’s reached that age of transition in life—our middle earth, Menopause—when she and her girlfriends can sit to shoot the breeze about the kids, the budget, the weather, and food and sex as if they belong under the same category.
Take, for instance, a piece of velvety rich, chocolaty fudge, so silky on the tongue—pleasurably delicious—“it is as satisfying as an orgasm,” this, a friend recently told me. We laughed! But then I couldn’t help but ponder on this new revelation, never having given this much thought before. I had to agree. How could I argue!

One of hubby's favorite sayings is that children are the worlds greatest contraception. And he is so right. Hubby is always complaining he doesn't get enough "stress relief" as he calls it. And this is why:
I got pregnant with Son no 1 during our first year of marriage. We were married for 11 weeks when morning sickness kicked in and all I wanted to do was throw up or eat pancakes. And then feeling like a waddling elephant does nothing for ones libido. I am also one of those woman who looked like I was 6 months pregnant at 6 weeks so I really did feel fat and ugly during my pregnancy.Then... Read More
“He, who had done more than any human being to draw her out of the caves of her secret, folded life, now threw her down into deeper recesses of fear and doubt. The fall was greater than she had ever known, because she had ventured so far into emotion and had abandoned herself to it.” - Anaïs Nin
Observing these things operating occasionally in my relationships is normal. However, if I see a few things happening all the time, and especially if I make excuses for the violation of these principles, it is cause for great concern. Be wise my friends...My friend will inflict... Read More
They are immediately disgusted and even shriek a “eewww”, “gross” when they see their parents kissing. Do they not know how we felt when we discovered they were no longer “innocent” in ways of the world?
I mean, let’s get real here. I kept my “eewwws” and “gross” to myself!!
I don’t think our children realize how they make us feel every time they utter disgust at seeing us, their parents, hugging and trading spit. Hey, they do it, too! Just because we’ve gotten older and are now grandparents doesn’t mean the action stops! It just means we’ve slowed down in life, but we aren’t... Read More
