    5 "Women's Diseases" Your Husband Can Get

    5 "Women's Diseases" Your Husband Can Get
    It’s hard to escape the flagrant gender labeling in our society. Dolls and the color pink are associated with girls, while guys are assigned GI Joes and the “manly” color blue.

    10 Things to Consider When Posting on Facebook

    10 Things to Consider When Posting on Facebook
    I check Facebook often. It’s a great tool. It allows me to reconnect to people I haven’t seen in years, inform a large number of people about something with one quick status note, and keep up with the activities of my friends, my children, my grandchildren and my friends’ grandchildren.

    6 Ways We Waste Hours of Our Lives

    6 Ways We Waste Hours of Our Lives
    The first of my many, many time-wasting activities takes place each morning with repeated manipulations of the snooze button on my alarm clock, followed by a dilly-dallying shower and an untoward amount of time spent perusing the offerings of my closet.
