Our brains are designed to focus on what is wrong. It does so in order to keep us safe—in other words, our focus on possible dangers is what keeps us alive.

It seems that celebrity break-ups are as frequent as my protein bar and drink regime ordered by my doctor to help me lose weight. I'm now up to 3 protein drinks a day, plus 3 protein bars, and then a 500 calorie protein rich dinner with plenty of fresh vegetables.

The latest casualty: Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher.
The other day I complimented my friend Tina on her cardigan. It was a long cardigan that you could wear with leggings. The cardigan looked comfortable and stylish, so I said I love your cardigan.

For those of us in the United States, this week we celebrate one of our country’s most treasured holidays: Thanksgiving. One of the elements that makes this tradition so special is the food that we eat based on the recipes that have been handed down through the generations. This food reminds us of past experiences of gathering with family and friends. There is something comforting and fulfilling in these types of traditions.
During Thanksgiving week, you are reminded to be grateful for the things and people in your life.

If your love life isn’t what you want, you may have trouble being grateful this time of year.
Thanksgiving is tomorrow and I'm home. Most years at this time I'd be on the road. Traveling to visit my sister and family. But last year my friends and I spent Thanksgiving together and a week later I lost a friend and one of my friends, a brother. My Mother always loved Thanksgiving and taught me how to make all the specialities my friends and family now request, but also left us right before thanksgiving.

Amazing orgies every Saturday night? Giant hour-long orgasms? They may make for fun fantasies, but that’s not what most people want from sex.
