Hollywood Lifestyle

The way some of the people in Hollywood live makes you wonder what they are thinking. Here's a story of an actress apologizing for cheating on her boyfriend. And, oh yes, the man she cheated with is married. She didn't apologize to the wife. I wonder how all this gets sorted out. Here's the link:

Olympic Swimmer Called Fat

I thought women who read my blog could feel empathy for this Australian Olympic swimmer who qualified for the Olympics and has aleady won eight medals was called "fat."

Another example of the way women are judged by their bodies. It's depressing. Here's the link:

At least she is getting a lot of support.

A Touching Story

I thought this was worth sharing.


Crotch Ropes

Are you into crotch ropes? I like having my good girl wearing one while she does her kneeling time.

And Blossom obviously likes them. Here's her link talking about it:

Let us know if you use them and like them.

Kneeling Time

One of the favorite things my good girl does for me is kneeling time. I love her spending her half hour kneeling and focusing herself on her submission. And she loves it and finds it hard to describe it. Here's a link to her post about kneeling time:

Do any of you do kneeling time or something like it to keep yourself focused? Let us know.

Nora Ephron on Breasts

After I did my last post on the history of bras, my good girl and I were talking about how most women don't tend to be happy with their breasts. They either think they are too small or too big or something.

What made me think of Nora Ephron's famous Esquire magazine article on Breasts. She died recently and is best known for movies like When Harry Met Sally, Sleepless in Seattle and Heartburn. But she was also a terrific writer and the memory pieces people wrote on her passing often mentioned her essay on having small breasts. It is still remembered all these years later and despite all her success. So I thought I'd share it with you. I hope you read it. Clever writing and a great example of how even successful women can get hung up on the size of their breasts. Here's the link:

From the male perspective, I am fine with breasts of any size and shape. I just don't like implants.

But are there readers out there who want to say they are happy with theirs?

History of the Bra

Bras were supposed to be a fairly modern invention that replaced the corset. But now a 600 year old bra has been discovered in an Austrian castle, suggesting women went from to bras to corsets and back to bras. Also, back in the day, women didn't wear panties. Here's the link:

I hope you found it as interesting as I did.



Two thousand calories

I had a great morning playing tennis for almost four hours. Two sets of mixed doubles and two more of singles with two different guys. One guy has a counter and he burned over 1800 calories after three sets so I figured I went over 2000 playing the second set. Now I eat some high calorie food like cherry pie.

After the third set, one guy said his wife was a rep for a drug company selling what he called old men's drugs including cialis and a drug with testosterone. I digress but it's nice to be retired while your wife still works. Anyway, he said cialis made older guys who don't need it feel like 25 although I said I had read it doesn't make a difference for guys without E.D. He said he hadn't used it himself to prove this theory. Then the other guy, who's 73, said his girlfriend was coming over tonight and he was popping cialis, which he called "hamburger helper.''

And then the first guy said, "Are you guys going to talk about erections or play more tennis?' Cracked me up.

This reminded me that on a blog this week, a blogger used the word "impotence'' and I said that so old-fashioned because once the drug companies figured out they would make money on it, they repackaged it as "E.D.'' and took the taboo out of it with millions of dollars worth of ads. I guess our conversation proved my point. Can't imagine guys having that conversation years ago. The drug companies turned it into a blood flow problem imstead of something to do with your manhood. Times change.

Separate Bedrooms?

I was surprised by this statistic that one in four couples sleep in separate bedrooms? Here's the link:

Do any of you sleep in separate bedrooms?

Marriage Mistakes

 Here's an article written by a guy who made every marriage mistake in the book. But at least he is willing to admit he made them and apparentlylearned from him. But he could have used a few marriage classes before he got married in the first place.

Here's the link:

I would be interested in your thoughts.


Tennis addiction

We all have our addictions. Mine in tennis. Love to play. I'm not very good but when I can play guys and gals on my level, the competition is fun and the exercise is good.

I don't get to play as often as I'd like, but had some time off this week and this morning (Friday) I played for the ninth time since 8 a.m. Monday morning. Twice a day Monday through Thursday. And this morning,  I burned about 1350 calories. One of the guys has a monitor and that was his rate so I assume I was about the same. So I am going to splurge and grill a steak and have some egg nog. I put a few quarts of egg nog in the back of the freezer during the holidays because they don't sell them the rest of the year. Every couple of months I take one out. The calories are ridiculous, 190 for half a cup. But I figure I can treat myself after a good workout instead of drinking Vitamin Zero water the way I usually do after playing. 

If you are still reading will add a story. A woman on the next court this morning had a white thing around an inch wide that looked somewhat braided around her neck. The thought crossed my mind was it a collar of some kind but I figured what are the odds of that. And then I noticed she no longer had it on. During a break, I realized she had it around her head under her white visor. It was a head band. Don't know why she started with it around her neck and why she wanted a headband and a visor. It made me think, headbands could do as makeshift collars. I guess I am always thinking about the D/s lifestyle.

Well, time to light the grill. Have a good day and hope it includes a good spanking.

Dinosaur Sex

This is kind of silly but I never thought about dinosaurs having sex until I came across this story.

National Kissing Day

I just did a post on kissing and missed National Kissing Day. I think it should be 365 days a year. And who knew there were so many health benefits to kissing as pointed out in this link.

Here's the link:

Kiss someone you love today.

A Kiss

Here's an interesting story on kissing. What are you thoughts on kissing? Do you kiss each time you leave? Do you kiss in the morning and at night?

Here's the link:

Will be interested in your thoughts.

Watch This Movie

Five years ago, filmmaker Michael Moore did a documentary called "Sicko''  on the crisis in America's health care industry. I just watched it this week with my good girl and it is even more relevant today with the health care debate going on.

If you haven't seen it, I recommend you getting it from your library or video store or Netflicks. Moore tells all the horror stories of people dying when they are denied a procedure or going bankrupt because of medical expenses and one older couple moving in the storage room of their daughter's house when they went bankrupt because of medical expenses.

And then he went to Canada, England and France and even Cuba -- yes Cuba -- to show how they have better health care than we do.

Of course, he could now do a sequel with the current debate. It is almost hard to believe. Obama gets a modest bill passed that eliminates some of the horrors like stopping the insurance companies from denying coverage because of pre-existing illnesess that was modeled after the bill Mitt Romney passed in Massachusetts that covers 98 per cent of the people and includes an individual mandate. And now Romney is running against it and threatening to repeal it if he is elected.

The critics talk about government takeover of health care when it actually leaves the insurance companies in charge. And, of course, we have government health care for those over 65 called Medicare and it is popular. Nobody would consider repealing that.

Well, enough of that rant but I would recommend the movie if you want a good luck about what a mess our health care system is.



Photoshopping Women

One of my pet gripes is the way pictures of models are sometimes photoshopped so they don't look like how they really look.

Here's an example from Victoria's Secret:

Why can't they let women be women with all their lovely curves?

Generation Y

Are you a member of Generation Y or the parent of a member of the 18 to 34 generation?

There are 80 million of them,  And among other things, they aren't obsessed with driving. A quarter of them didn't have driving licenses in 2010. I was shocked by that statistic.

Will be interested if you agree or disagree with anything else in this profile of that generation?
