Grape growers and winemakers are starting to get together the old fashioned way: online. It appears the principles that run online dating are pretty excellent for supply management in an almost commodity business. Just like online dating, you just have to be sure that the person you're dealing with wants your grapes inside their bottle for the right reasons.
A man nearly crashed his own wedding (bad pun? Yes) when the brakes on his limo broke. He and his best man careened into a brick wall but got off with a few minor injuries and continued with the wedding. The groom's mother had some sort of cardiac episode and spent the ceremony in the hospital. We're glad everyone is alright and all married.
An Italian model and Big Brother Italy star has decided to check out this whole prostitution thing by announcing the sale of her virginity. This follows the trend of Natalie Dylan auctioning her chastity. Let's hope that this doesn't spiral out of control. Someone warn Disney that this stuff happens.
Owen Wilson poisoning Bradley Cooper in Wedding Crashers: funny. Poisoning your roommate like Owen Wilson poisoned Bradley Cooper in Wedding Crashers: not funny. A woman in New York found that out the hard way. And she's gotta pay his medical bills and is on probation. Let's hope that she learns to lay off the movie-inspired goofs.
An Illinois woman had a stroke after having sex over the weekend. It turns out that a very rare combination of minor things can cause a post-coital stroke. It's very rare but if you happen to feel numb and speech slurry after non drunk sex, you should probably consult a doctor right away. FYI.
A Pennsylvanian woman is trying to invalidate her prenup for reasons of fraud on her husband's part. It turns out that the diamond engagement ring that he gave her was artificial. A judge doesn't feel like hearing the case. You can bet that she won't fall for that trick again. Plus the last word on the Matos-McGreevey fallout.
Sure, it's barely related to love and relationships but it's a friggin' election year so bare with us. It looks like some folks in the Department of the Interior were getting some fringe benefits from contacts in the oil industry.
A new system for helping animals with mating in captivity is being released. It's sort of a Facebook for the animal kingdom. And the male peacock is starting to rethink a lot of the choices he's made.
A couple of high profile cases in largely Islamic nations are proceeding. Not very quickly, but proceeding. The Dubai beach sex case has taken a break. As has the Nigerian 86 wives case. Maybe everyone is just trying to figure out how to win these cases without looking a little crazy.
A judge and a DA in Texas allegedly had an affair that could have diverted justice. What's the big deal? A guy on death row's lawyers think the affair could have undermined their client's case. Ugh. Not good.
