What could the Academy Awards possibly have to do with your love life? Well, unless you have direct access to Bradley Cooper (who proclaims that he's looking for love btw) and he decides to bring you down that red carpet as his date, you might think that those two aspirations have nothing in common.
For many of us, it is easy to have a goal and then get so busy in our lives we forget about it. In many organizations, a great plan is developed and then it sits on the shelf because the day-to-day functioning consumes all the time and focus of the employees.

Preparing for a Sexy Old Age : Start Now! Maintain cardiovascular health – Healthy sexual functioning requires good blood flow for both men and women.
