  • These Are Swoon-Worthy!

    I miss some of the old fashioned customs that my parents raised me with. I was taught to always send a "thank you" when someone sends you a present. A man should always open a door for a woman and you should use the proper fork for different parts of a meal.

    I haven't always been perfect in my manners and I have come to expect little from others. It shouldn't be this way! We should all try to have better manners, be polite and respectable at all times!

    I have made a list of "old fashioned customs" that I believe need to come back. What would you add to the list? 

     

    1. Open a door for a woman

    2. Send REAL invitations and thank you cards

    3. Waiting until everyone has been served before eating

    4. Men should pay on the first date (Extra points if he brings flowers!) 

    5. When going to a party ALWAYS bring a hostess gift

    6. Men should stand when a woman is excusing themselves from the table

    7. Use the appropriate fork at the dinner table

  • Why Women Are Attracted to Powerful Men

    Posted by Kristen Flowers

    Bill Clinton had Monica Lewinsky. John Edwards had Rielle Hunter. And now General David Patraeus has Paula Broadwell.  Why do women keep having affairs with married political authority figures? 

    "Like the 'tall, dark, and handsome' cliche, some women are attracted to men who possess the three qualities of wealth, celebrity, and influence," Dr. Terri Orbuch, director of a 25-year-long study on marriage and divorce funded by the National Institute of Health, told Yahoo! Shine in an interview. "From a purely biological perspective, for females success implies that the male will be a good provider and offer security. Of course, this makes little sense in the case of a married man, but it is nevertheless part of the underlying, unconscious appeal such men have to women." 

    Emotional need may also play a role. In his autobiography, Clinton said that he cheated on his wife with Lewinsky "just because I could"  but Lewinsky has said that she wasn't simply attracted to the former President. "I fell in love," she  told a grand jury in 1998. 


     

    "In a culture raised on Disney films, love may seem like the best justification of all," says Rick Reynolds of Affair Recovery. "Don't all cravings and desires need to be fulfilled? Far too often the consequences of infidelity are buried under the fantasy of falling in love." 

    There's a biological component as well. While a person can't "fall in love" at will to justify anything, Orbuch told Yahoo! Shine, "Levels of dopamine, norepinephrine, testosterone, phenylethylamine (PEA), and serotonin spike in the brain when we are experiencing romantic love. It's a potent cascade of love chemicals that influence our mood, rationality, and responses." 

    "In other words, when a woman has a mad crush on a man, she's probably not thinking too clearly. She's not thinking about the consequences—nor is he," Orbuch continued. "Once they've been bitten by the lust bug, they are like a fast-moving locomotive. A train wreck may be ahead (usually is), but they can't see it, or they choose not to." 

    Men in positions of power have plenty of opportunities to stray, and men in high-risk jobs—like politics and the military—may crave the adrenaline rush that comes with a new conquest. There are also plenty of opportunities for them to be unfaithful to their wives.

  • Why I Hate Going to The Dentist!

    Posted by Kristen Flowers

    I use to love going to the Dentist. When I was younger, I would go and get my teeth cleaned and walk out feeling healthy and clean. I guess those days had to end...

    Since I work in radio and move quite a bit, I have had to establish myself at different dentists over the years...some where good and some were not. Needless to say, my mouth is full of fillings and I have suffered through my first root-canal...not the best time I ever had by the way.

    So when I moved to Terre Haute I knew I was going to have to start over AGAIN. I got a recommendation from a co-worker and I went to my first appointment yesterday...it did not go well.

    They told me that not only did I need to get another root-canal but I had SEVERAL cavities that need to be filled! I had to pick up my jaw off the floor! I brush multiple times a day, floss, don't drink coffee or smoke! What happened?!

    Do you just blindly trust your dentist?

    Please make me feel better! I want to hear some of your dental horror stories!

  • Should You be Fired For Having an Affair?

    Posted by Kristen Flowers

    CIA Director David H. Petraeus resigned Friday and admitted to having an extramarital affair, bringing a shocking end to his brief tenure at the spy agency and highly decorated national security career.

    The affair came to light as part of an FBI investigation into a potential security breach involving Petraeus’s emails, according to federal law enforcement officials and a former senior intelligence official.

     

    The investigation uncovered emails describing an affair between Petraeus and Paula Broadwell, a former military officer and co-author of a glowing biography of Petraeus. Petraeus, a retired four-star Army general who once was seen as a potential presidential candidate, met with President Obama on Thursday and said he intended to step down because of the affair, Obama administration officials said. The president accepted his resignation Friday.

    “After being married for over 37 years, I showed extremely poor judgment by engaging in an extramarital affair,” Petraeus said in a statement. “Such behavior is unacceptable, both as a husband and as the leader of an organization such as ours. This afternoon, the president graciously accepted my resignation,” he said. 

     

    What do you think about this? Should you ever have to leave your job because of an affair? 

  • Who Should They Date Now?

    Posted by Kristen Flowers

    JUSTIN BIEBER and SELENA GOMEZ have broken up.  A source says, quote, "Because of their crazy schedules, it was getting harder and harder to maintain a relationship."

     

    But it might not be that simple.  Other sources say it was Selena who did the dumping around Halloween . . . and it was because of Justin's new "friendship" with a Victoria's Secret model named Barbara Palvin.

     

    On Thursday night, they went to see "The Lion King" on Broadway with a group of people.  But afterward, Barbara Tweeted, quote, "hey everyone. please calm down.  he is all yours!! :)  please :)."

     

    And she later followed up with this Tweet, quote, "There is nothing going on with him.  I met him and did a pic with him.  Wouldn't you do the same?  #friendship"

     

    The night before, Justin performed at the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show. 

     

    And after the show, Barbara Tweeted, quote, "okay sooo because u guys were askin for it! with ‪@justinbieber ! you were great tonight!"  She added this photo of herself with Justin.

     

    A source says Justin was playing the field throughout the fashion show . . . quote, "He was asking for phone numbers from the girls . . . He was hitting on [them] all day.”

     

    In an interview on Saturday, Justin seemed a little confused about how things are going to work out.

     

    When asked about the breakup, he said, quote, "I don't know what to say.  I don't know what's going on in my life.  To even assess that, it doesn't make sense 'cause I have not made any comment."

     

     A source has told TMZ that Justindoesn't want the breakup . . . and he's confident he and Selena will get back together.

    Who do you think they should date now? I vote for Taylor Lautner for Selena! They would be adorable!
