One of those dating sites for married men, who want to cheat (creepy, right?) just did a survey of their members.....and guess what they found out...
When men are having an affair, they’re most likely to take a woman out to dinner at a chain restaurant, or a steakhouse at least 20 miles from their house. They say it's because chain restaurants are bigger and busier.....so, they are less likely to be noticed there. They say a lot of these type of places are near hotels, which is oh-so-convenient for other cheating activities. Way to keep it classy, cheaters.
Anyway.....next time I am at one of these places, I'm totally going to shoot knowing stares at all the couples who are clearly on a date. Haha!
1. Morton’s, the Steakhouse.
2. Ruth’s Chris Steak House.
3. Houston’s, an upscale restaurant chain in the west and southwest.
This was found in Chile 10 years ago and everyone was certain it was proof of alien life. Turns out.....it's not.
DNA tests were done and now there's a new documentary about it, "Sirius", which premiered Monday in Hollywood. In the film, a scientist concludes the little humanoid was ......human!!
"I can say with absolute certainty that it is not a monkey. It is human -- closer to human than chimpanzees. It lived to the age of six to eight. Obviously, it was breathing, it was eating, it was metabolizing. It calls into question how big the thing might have been when it was born,"said Garry Nolan, director of stem cell biology at Stanford University's School of Medicine in California. Dr Nolan says the specimen had "an apparently severe form of dwarfism and other anomalies." Hmmmmm.
The "Sirius" documentary will be coming to town later this year.....we'll be sure to let you know when it plays!
You know how guys always devour the hot wings, but leave the celery all by their lonesome selves on the platter? That's about to change with this new study that suggests there's certain foods a guy can eat that will make him more attractive to women. Here's 3 of 'em:
Celery, which naturally contains a male steroid hormone called androstenene. Eating celery supposedly causes your sweat glands to release the pheromone androstenol, which is often used in sprays and colognes as an aphrodisiac to attract women.
Truffles: It isn’t the cheapest diet additive, but according to researchers, truffles contain androstenone and androstenol, like celery.
Parsnips: In addition to making your body put off pheromones, parsnips also boost testosterone levels.
Would you believe there is a whole lullaby album of Bruno Mars covers? So random....but in a strange way....awesome! I kind of want this for those nights I have a hard time falling asleep.....that's not weird is it? ;-)
Peppermint - Crazy, right? Fresh breath = better chance of kissing. However, if you want the kissing to lead to something more.....skip the peppermint.The menthol in peppermint has been shown to reduce testosterone levels, sending sex drive plummeting.
A Bottle of Wine - What could be more romantic than sharing a bottle of wine? If you just have a glass, then you should be fine, but too much alcohol lowers your sensitivity to touch and weakens orgasms.
Chocolate Covered Strawberries (or any fruit for dessert) - The fruit digests FAST, causing bloating & gas. Enough said. ;-)
Hot Dogs & French Fries The trans-fats can negatively impact testosterone levels and circulation....which impacts a guy's performance.
Star magazine just put out a list of the celebs that people hate the most.....and seriously? More people hate Gwyneth Palrow than Chris Brown and Ashton Kutcher?! Somebody is going to have to explain that one to me. Anyone else on this this that just doesn't really belong there?
Here's the list, in order:
1. Gwyneth Paltrow 2. Kristen Stewart 3. Jennifer Lopez 4. John Mayer 5. Katherine Heigl 6. Matt Lauer 7. Madonna 8. Justin Bieber 9. Anne Hathaway 10/11. Kris Jenner / Kim Kardashian 12. LeAnn Rimes 13. Ashton Kutcher 14. Jay Leno 15. Angelina Jolie 16. Lindsay Lohan 17. Shia LaBeouf 18. Taylor Swift 19. Jesse James 20. Chris Brown
This is from the website for Boston Children's Hospital. They have been treating many of the victims of yesterday's tragedy. They also recognize that many children are suffering emotional trauma from witnessing such a horrible act. Here are their tips for talking with your children and helping them deal with tragedies like this:
Tell your children what happened–it’s important that they hear it from you. Do it in a broad-strokes way (“There were explosions at the marathon and some people were hurt”)
Answer their questions simply and honestly (again, in a broad-strokes way–details aren’t necessary)
Limit their exposure to media. It’s hard not to end up glued to the television, especially as events are unfolding, but it may be very upsetting to children. Use your laptop or smart phone instead.
Make sure they know that events like these are very rare. It’s usually very safe to be in public places.
Let them know that you, and other helping adults, are working all the time to keep them safe. Talk about some of the ways you do this.
Understand that they, like you, may need time to process what has happened. They may be upset but not even know why, so be patient if they act out in unusual ways.
If your child is very sad or anxious and nothing you are doing is helping, call your doctor.
Maybe this is why 1 out of 3 people say they LOVE Tax Day.....free stuff! This is a national list, so some of these might not be available near us......but if you know of a deal that isn't on the list, post it in the comments. You're welcome!

1. Going Through A Transition
Graduating, turning a certain age, losing a parent or advancing the relationship status will cause women to get introspective. The discomfort of change can trigger an impulsive desire to find someone to take her focus off the change and be a diversion for what she is going through."
2. Not Feeling Adequately Celebrated
Men often make the misstep of not complimenting their partner's achievements. Psychologists say that women seek an emotional connection that their partner notices them, is proud of their achievements, and appreciates what they do, so when they aren't getting this at home, they may look elsewhere for it.
3. Feeling A Relationship Ending
When a woman feels that a relationship is on the outs, she will often look to fill the void externally to soften the blow. She may be using this tactic as a challenge to herself to test the waters, and then gauge if she can go through with it
4. It's Just Not Fun Anymore
Physchologists say when you don't laugh, you don't love! Laughter isa great stress reliever and your relationship will benefit from more laughs!
5. It's Boring In The Bedroom
With the popularity of books such as Fifty Shades of Grey, television shows, or listening to friends talk about their fun single trysts, women have that moment when they compare their love life at home to what the rest of the world seems to be experiencing and that's when she may start to wonder what she's missing.
A new article in a British newspaper just came out, claiming that some "bad habits" are actually healthy & good for you. Not sure this makes me feel any better about any of them (haha!), but here you go:
BITING YOUR NAILS
Dr Hilary Longhurst, an immunologist from the UK, says
‘Unless your hands are filthy, the bugs we encounter when biting our nails could boost our immune system.’
Dr Nick Read, a British gastroenterologist says burping may in fact protect your body against damage from stomach acid.
Dr. Read says "releasing the gas eases pain and bloating, especially if you have a sensitive gut that becomes bloated regularly."
This cracking can make a joint feel more flexible,’ says Dr Chris Edwards, a rheumatologist.
‘People’s joints tend to feel more comfortable after cracking — this may be because they have stretched out the joint and have a greater degree of movement.’
EATING IN BED
Dr Read says eating in bed aids digestion, because you are relaxed. Stress of any sort will interfere with and even stop digestion.
My name is Aquarius and I'm looking for a warm lap to lie on. It takes me a little time to trust new people in new places, but give me a bit and we'll be great friends. That's probably how I will greet most new people, but I've heard it's a somewhat...
