Early Christmas Gift Idea!
December 1, 2006 07:03

    

Do we have a suggestion for you! Have you ever slept on memory foam? The stuff is incredible. It will change your life. Once you have slept on this space-age marvel (NASA invented it) you will never go back. So, here's the idea: If you live with your partner, or sleep over often, get him a memory foam mattress topper for his bed--- a unique and super Christmas present. And who else gets to benefit from it?

If you sleep alone, well, get him one for his bed, anyway. After hearing him rave about it, you will soon be ordering your own. We have a king-sized topper, 3" thick was plenty. And it really helps with your bad back, too.

This company sells a quality product, at a decent price (memory foam is not cheap), with free shipping: My Dream Mattress

Movie Review: Babel
December 6, 2006 07:56

    

Man, what a drought at the boxoffice lately… loads of Christmas movies-yuck!
If you really want to go out for date night, we found a new Brad Pitt flick for you to try: BABEL

    

An American couple vacationing in Morocco are plunged into a desperate struggle for survival after an accidental shooting. This tragedy ignites a chain of events which link together 4 groups of widely separated players. It is a film about misunderstanding, and how it can plunge us into confusion and tragedy, and argues for truth and sympathy. And the power of love.

Babel is technically brilliant, has a stellar cast (including Brad Pitt and Cate Blanchett), and sweeps you along in a most interesting tale. As one review stated, Babel is a "beautiful, thrilling maze that pulls us into and out of traps and seeming blind alleys." Enjoy!

Pearl Harbor Day Remembrance
December 7, 2006 07:09

    

December 7, 1941... "A day that will live in infamy"...

Today marks the anniversary of a traumatic and scary day in U.S. history. Our parents who lived through the radio reports and declaration of war on Japan will never forget it. They thought the enemy would be invading our shores soon! Imagine that...

Those of us in newer generations sit in our comfortable living rooms, watching news from Iraq unfold on our wide screen TVs. It's all distant, non-threatening. Disturbing but not scary... for us anyway. Complacency.

Find an elder relative or friend today who was alive and remembers the Pearl Harbor Attack. Ask him to tell you the story, how it all felt. It'll make you appreciate the relative security and freedoms we still enjoy in the states today (despite the horror of 911). Partly because of the ultimate sacrifices many men and women made during the Great War. Let us never forget.

    

And rent or buy Pearl Harbor, the movie.
iconThis is not a heavy, philosophical treatment of the event. Instead it is an amazingly choreographed and beautifully filmed war epic. Dramatic and emotional, it is entertainment of the first order. Watch it with your honey tonight.

Gotta sell the bike, huh?
December 11, 2006 07:15

    

This was an actual newspaper advertisement a couple months ago:

Post date: Aug 7th, 2006
Expire Date: Sep 6th, 2006
Farmington , UT 84025 - Aug 7, 2006


$10,000 -06' Suzuki GSXR 1000

2006 Suzuki 1000. This bike is perfect! It has 1000 miles and has had
its 500 mile dealer service (Expensive). It's been adult ridden, all wheels
have always been on the ground. I use it as a cruiser/commuter. I'm selling
it because it was purchased without proper consent of a loving wife.
Apparently "do whatever the f**k you want" doesn't mean what I thought.

Poetry Contest Winner: SURRENDER
December 19, 2006 07:37

    

SURRENDER

Anytime I think of you
I recall the way you looked
The first time it happened.

You stared at me with
Those hopeless eyes.

Then...

Your breath all over my body...

I have never touched, smelled, nor felt anybody
The way I have felt, touched, and smelled - you.

Sweet surrender.

It is hard not to remember.
Yet, deep within my soul
There is something that kills,
Slaughters my heart,
Keeps telling me,

It tells me something,
Something that I ought to do.
Ending this makes it
Heart breaking for me,
But at the same time,
I know that you could never
Ever leave her,
It would not be fair.
I guess you love her so.

I will hold back.
I will disprove the hope
That we were meant to be together.
There will be no one
To replace your body
Your heart...
So excited, so audacious, so intense.
Let me depart with a soul-torn smile
Yet with a swell heart that knows
She will make you happy.

---Jenny (Yahoo)

HO, HO, HO...

You know, we believe in equal job opportunities for men and women… you know, women pilots, male nurses, female auto mechanics, men to arrange your roses. In keeping with its "politically correct" mandates from management, a paper company hired a man to design Christmas wrapping paper... traditionally a female position. And you can just guess the results: (The Rest of the Story...)

THE POLITICALLY CORRECT SANTA CLAUS!
December 22, 2006 08:19

    


'Twas the night before Christmas and Santa's a wreck...
How to live in a world that's politically correct?

His workers no longer would answer to "Elves",
"Vertically Challenged" they were calling themselves.

And labor conditions at the north pole
Were alleged by the union to stifle the soul.

Four reindeer had vanished, without much propriety,
Released to the wilds by the Humane Society.

And equal employment had made it quite clear
That Santa had better not use just reindeer.

So Dancer and Donner, Comet and Cupid,
Were replaced with 4 pigs, and you know that looked stupid!?

The runners had been removed from his sleigh;
The ruts were termed dangerous by the E.P.A.

And people had started to call for the cops
When they heard sled noises on their roof-tops.

Second-hand smoke from his pipe had his workers quite frightened.
His fur trimmed red suit was called "Unenlightened."

And to show you the strangeness of life's ebbs and flows:
Rudolf was suing over unauthorized use of his nose
And had gone on Geraldo, in front of the nation,
Demanding millions in over-due compensation.

So, half of the reindeer were gone; and his wife,
Who suddenly said she'd enough of this life,
Joined a self-help group, packed, and left in a whiz,
Demanding from now on her title was Ms.

And as for the gifts, why, he'd ne'er had a notion
That making a choice could cause so much commotion.

Nothing of leather, nothing of fur,
Which meant nothing for him. And nothing for her.

Nothing that might be construed to pollute.
Nothing to aim. Nothing to shoot.
Nothing that clamored or made lots of noise.
Nothing for just girls. Or just for the boys.
Nothing that claimed to be gender specific.
Nothing that's warlike or non-pacific.
No candy or sweets...they were bad for the tooth.
Nothing that seemed to embellish a truth.

And fairy tales, while not yet forbidden,
Were like Ken and Barbie, better off hidden.

For they raised the hackles of those psychological
Who claimed the only good gift was one ecological.

No baseball, no football...someone could get hurt;
Besides, playing sports exposed kids to dirt.

Dolls were said to be sexist, and should be passe;
And Nintendo would rot your entire brain away.

So Santa just stood there, disheveled, perplexed;
He just could not figure out what to do next.

He tried to be merry, tried to be gay,
But you've got to be careful with that word today.

His sack was quite empty, limp to the ground;
Nothing fully acceptable was to be found.

Something special was needed, a gift that he might
Give to all without angering the left or the right.

A gift that would satisfy, with no indecision,
Each group of people, every religion;
Every ethnicity, every hue,
Everyone, everywhere...even you.

So here is that gift, it's price beyond worth...

"May you and your loved ones enjoy peace on earth."

SOME ADVENTUROUS DATES FOR 2007
December 26, 2006 11:41

      

Build a tree house (then make it your own secret romantic hideaway!)

Attend an auction together. Look in the paper for upcoming events.

Go to a travel agency and explain that you are comparison shopping a trip you are planning to take. Ask for an itinerary of sights to see. Get estimates for airfare, lodging, food, and transportation. Why not go?

Get up early one morning and head for the mountains, a lake, the shore, or even the sand dunes. Take along all the ingredients for a delicious breakfast to be cooked over a campfire and pack a picnic lunch. Check our Picnic Page for ideas.

Gather 26 objects starting with letters A-Z on a road rally. No more than 2 items per location. Throw in a mandatory stop at a tasty restaurant for lunch.

Clean out an attic, basement or garage that no one has touched for a long time. Grandparents' houses are perfect places for this. Delight in the treasures you find.

Go and shoot your own turkey. When you come back, clean it and dress it for dinner.

Catch your own worms and use them early one morning to catch fish at your favorite lake or stream.

When the rain is coming down in bucketfuls, put on some old clothes and shoes and go hunting for puddles in gutters, parking lots, grassy areas in parks, etc. Have splash wars or jump from puddle to puddle. You could even stand on a sidewalk next to a big puddle that cars have to drive through. Pretend that the sudden wall of water was a surprise! If you are in the park, make sure you use the wet slide, which probably will have a big puddle at the bottom. Make a muddy mess of yourselves, then go home and take a hot shower together!

Take an airplane or helicopter ride around the city. Take a camera to take pictures of you and make the memories twice as great! Check the yellow pages under airplanes rental or rides.

Go on a hot-air balloon ride. Hot-air balloon facilities and operators can be found all over the country. Depending on the time of day you go, be sure to take a picnic, light breakfast or dinner (you may want to have enough for the operator too). Don't forget to take some pictures of the breathtaking views.
