First Did You Know for the Year
- Bruce Springsteen said he is afraid of the Trump Presidency, he also said when President Reagan was elected that he was very afraid. I guess he is a very afraid Democrat. (He has got nothing to be afraid of.)
2. A rigorously done new study shows that those with the highest sugar intake had a four-fold increase in their risk of heart attacks compared to those with the lowest intakes. That’s 400 percent! Just one 20-ounce soda increases your risk of a heart attack by about 30 percent.
3. If you see this label
a. A four-digit code beginning with a 3 or a 4 means the produce is probably conventionally grown. The last digits of the code represent the kind of the fruit or vegetable you are buying. For example, bananas are always labeled with the code of 4011.
b. If there are five numbers, and the first is “8″, then the product is genetically modified. The label on genetically modified banana (GE-genetically engineered of GMO) would contain the numbers 84011.
c. A five-digit number that starts with a 9 means the item is organic. Organic bananas are labeled with 94011.
EWG ( The Environmental Working Group) analyzed pesticide residue testing data from the U.S. Department of Agriculture and Food and Drug Administration to come up with rankings for these popular fresh produce items.
The Environmental Protection Agency warns that the consumption of pesticides can lead to health problems such as “birth defects, nerve damage, cancer, and other effects that might occur over a long period of time.” Children are especially at risk of harm from pesticides.
Orangutan females give birth only about once every 8 years, the longest time between births of any mammal on earth.
Orangutans share almost 97 percent of the human DNA (scary)
A bird’s takes up about 50 percent of its head. A humans eyes take up about 5 percent of its head.
I happen to read this book last year after seeing him being interviewed by Oprah and on the CBS.
Well I was watching Steve Harvey last night on his Season premiere No 2, “What Men Really Think” and it reminded me of the book.
On the show Steve Harvey explores Love and relationships and men’s thoughts on the matter.
He had approx 150 females in his audience and about a 1000 men. The woman was asking relationship questions. Harvey together with his sharp humor was putting up a choice of 3 answers and the guys were giving their choice via a survey.
I laughed my butt off. It was so funny and rather insightful.
I thoroughly enjoyed the show. I think the next one is on this afternoon (09/09/2015). I of course record it and watch it with my husband in the evening.
The book was very light-hearted , not to serious with great clarity. I chuckled through the book as we as females are really lost when it come to thinking we know what is going on in our mans brain.
This a video and Steve Harvey is talking about the book. I just laugh listening to him I find his humor very funny.

“5 languages of love”
This book I read about 3 years ago. Probably the best book I have read about helping one understand their relationship with their partner.
I notice since I read the book he has expanded his books to ‘Singles’ ‘Children’ &’Mens edition’ just to mention a few.
It basically determines which language of Love that is suited to you and that of your partner.
It’s a great builder of a rather diminishing relationship of a long marriage or not so long partnership.
Sometimes we really do not know our partners as well as we think we do.
I have actually given this book to many of my friends and find that not one of them have said that ‘This book is not for me’. They have all had great things to say about it.
I cannot recommend this book enough. I especially like the look of the 5 languages of love for children. We are all inclined to treat our children in the same way but each one has a different language of love which could make a difference to your relationship with them especially if they are teenagers.
Both of these books will be great gifts for Christmas

You Know at the end of the day ‘Us’ Females, for the want of a better description, are romantics. When I saw this, I thought how beautiful and how blessed that Woman was that her husband cherished her so much that he spent the time and effort to do this in her memory. I love it and I wish for every Woman in this world a man in her life to love her the way this man did her.
I think mine does cause he sent this email to me. I guess I won’t know till I kick the bucket.
A heart-shaped meadow, planted 15 years ago by a farmer as a tribute to his late wife, can be seen in South Gloucestershire, England. He used 6,000 oak trees across a six-acre field, with the heart pointing in the direction of her childhood home.
