From ScienceDaily A Gallup poll recently confirmed that men and women both believe that it is women who are most likely to possess the gift of gab. Some even believe that women are biologically built for conversation. This widespread belief is challenged in new research.
From The Rochester Democrat And Chronicle By Diana Louise Carter (November 12, 2007) — Caitlin Ormond thought a year would be plenty of time to plan her wedding with fiancé Adrian Blaszczak. Little did she know that many brides and grooms reserve chapels and reception spots two years in advance. So when Ormond, 23, started looking into venues last summer for weekend dates in late July 2008, they were all booked. Then she became friends with someone who had a wedding on a Thursday evening at Ormond's dream location — Casa Larga Vineyard — and an idea was born. Why not get married on Thursday, July 24, 2008? Casa Larga became more available and affordable with a midweek date. Ormond estimates she'll save more than $1,000 compared to booking on a Saturday, when she would have been required to pay for a 210-person minimum instead of for the 75 guests she expects.
