Marriage counselor Wanda Bryna says husbands can keep the come-hither look in their wife's eyes and ratchet up their sex life by stealing a peek down her blouse or complimenting her on how good she looks from behind. Here are more the counselor's tips for putting a sparkle in a wife's eyes and keeping romance alive:
  • "Compliment her on the things she does better than you, like tidying up the house or washing the car."
  • "When she bends over to pick up your socks or perform some other chore, smack your lips and yell approvingly, 'Oh, yeah! Hold that pose, baby, while I get the camera.'"
  • "Regularly praise her cooking no matter how bad it is."
  • "Don't' just grunt, but let your wife know you really appreciate her for popping the top on another cold one when you finish off a beer while watching a game on the tube. Give her a big kiss and look at her while you're smooching not at the game."
  • "Let her handle the remote once in a while. Be a sweetheart and tell her: "There's nothing worth watching so you can turn the channel to whatever you like. Watch that ice show you've been talking about."
  • Flatter her on casual nudity with complements like: "Hey, hey, still looking goooood!


TripAdvisor assembled a list of the quirkiest hotels in the U.S. Vacation at any of these, and you'll really have something to write home about:
  1. McMenamins Kennedy School in Portland, OR -- Miss the fun and challenge of school? You might still be able to smell the chalk here, since the guestrooms in this renovated school were once classrooms.
  2. Forget-Me-Not Lodge and the Aurora Express in Fairbanks, AK -- Anyone can ride the rails, but here you can spend the night in a restored railroad car on permanent tracks. Just don't count on it to actually transport you anywhere other than dreamland.
  3. Dog Bark Park Inn in Cottonwood, ID -- Ever want to get inside your dog's head? If you visit here, you can sleep in it! The building is shaped like the world's biggest beagle.
  4. Kokopelli Cave Bed and Breakfast in Farmington, NM -- This sandstone lair is actually carved into the side of a cliff, making it easy to commune with nature.
  5. Victorian Mansion at Los Alamos in Los Alamos, CA -- This isn't your typical Victorian decor. Eccentric room themes here include gypsies, pirates and the '50s. To access the hidden bathroom in the Egyptian Suite, tug the beard of the life-size King Tut.
  6. Turpentine Creek Wildlife Refuge in Eureka Springs, AK -- You don't have to go on an African safari to get up close with nature's big cats, since tigers, lions and cougars are kept in enclosures just outside the rooms.
  7. Wigwam Motel in Holbrook, AZ -- Book a night here, and you can sleep in a wigwam along Route 66.
  8. Adobe Grand Villas in Sedona, AZ -- Continuing the cowboys and Indians theme, when you stay here, you sleep in a covered wooden wagon.
  9. Shady Dell RV Park in Bisbee, AZ -- The travel trailers are decked out like an authentic '50s diner and a yacht.
  10. Winvian in Morris, CT -- Relive your childhood and sleep in a tree house or fulfill your childhood dreams and sleep in a restored U.S. Coast Guard helicopter.


The way you and your partner sleep together reveals a lot about your love life. "The positions couples adopt during their slumber speak volumes about their level of intimacy and the style and quality of their love making," says psychologist Dr. Karl Bosuns. He bases his conclusions on an ongoing study he conducted through the years centering on the personalities, sex lives and sleeping positions of over 700 couples.
  • Too hot to handle -- Couples who sleep back-to-back without touching each other, strangely enough, tend to be the wildest and most passionate in their lovemaking. "They exert so much energy and produce so much heat they don't normally cuddle," says Dr. Bosuns, a family and marriage counselor for 30 years.
  • Bottoms up -- In this position, the man normally sleeps face down with his arms spread "as if he's embracing the whole world. The woman adopts a tuck position, preserving the warmth she feels in the center of her body. "They fall asleep feeling like they've got the world by the tail," says Dr. Bosuns.
  • Spoons -- "Lovers who sleep in this position, I've found, are the kind of people who are extremely tactile they love to touch so much that they fall asleep in maximum body contact."
  • Her leg over his -- This could have two meanings, according to Dr. Bosuns: "either she's unfulfilled and left wanting more, or she's totally satisfied and is simply trying to prolong the afterglow."
  • His leg over hers -- "Men aren't generally left unsatisfied in their lovemaking, so there's little question what this position means for the man he's feeling very affectionate and adopts a posture that preserves his afterglow," says Dr. Bosuns.


Want to change the world? Just eat a peanut butter and jelly sandwich for lunch. Yes, a PB&J will slow global warming. How?
  • One sandwich reduces your carbon footprint by saving the equivalent of 2.5 pounds of carbon dioxide emissions over an average animal-based lunch like a hamburger, a tuna sandwich, grilled cheese, or chicken nuggets.
  • If you have a PB&J instead of a ham sandwich or a hamburger, you save the equivalent almost 3.5 pounds of greenhouse gas emissions.
  • A PB&J will also save about 280 gallons of water over the hamburger. To put this in perspective, three PB&Js a month instead of hamburgers will save about as much water as switching to a low-flow showerhead.
  • A PB&J will save 12 to 50 square feet of land from deforestation, over-grazing, and pesticide and fertilizer pollution.

Remember last week when we showed you the billboard PETA was planning to erect (Am I 12 years old? Because that word still cracks me up) in Florida to remind people to get their pets spayed and neutered. Tiger apparently wasn’t too happy about it – his lawyers threatened to sue the animal lovahs if they went forward with their plans. A PETA spokesperson said, “We were contacted by Tiger’s lawyers at IMG who kindly, but firmly, told us we were not authorized to use his image on the billboard.” So what will PETA do? They’re creating a new billboard featuring South Carolina Governor and tan line addict Mark Sanford. The text beneath his photo will read: “Your dog doesn’t have to go to South America to get laid.” Craziness!





1. The Style Guru – Everyone needs someone to help them figure out what exactly qualifies as appropriate attire for that “black-tie optional” wedding. Girls need a second pair of eyes to confirm that overpriced outfit makes them look 10 pounds lighter. And guys, whether you know it or not, you do need that metrosexual friend to tell you those jean were outlawed in the 90’s and it’s okay to drop a hundred bucks on the ones you should be wearing.

2. Mr./Ms. Fix It – That book shelf looked awesome in the store but you neglected to read the fine print that said “self-assemble.” Who ya gonna call?… your buddy that actually reads the directions or your girlfriend that buys all her furniture at IKEA because she thinks putting it together makes a fun Saturday afternoon!

3. The Good Time Gal (or Guy) – You know that one perpetually single (but never alone) friend who always knows what’s going on in town on any given night of the week. Who better to call when you’re board and itching for something to do? And this life-of-the-party friend will never let you show up alone either!
4. The Health Nut – For the moments when you suddenly decide to use your gym membership and clean the “ready-in-minutes” delicacies out of your freezer and off of your waistline, you know you can count on this friend to pass on some recipes and tell you how to turn on the elliptical machine without looking like an idiot.

5. The Listener – Everyone has had one of those days when you just need to vent and everything seems to get better. Call the friend who can calmly listen and offer advise or at least tell you that you are, of course, right!

6. The Do-It-Yourself’er – There are times this friend might make you look bad or like a slacker, but they sure are nice to have around when you need those pants hemmed at the last minute… or are attempting to bake a cake from scratch to impress your sweetie.
7. The Culture Guru – This friend keeps you up to speed on the latest and greatest… be it the art exhibit in town, where the up and coming bands are playing, or the best places for wine tastings. Not only does this friend keep you in the loop but after hanging with them, you’ll sound like you know what you’re talking about too.

8. The Health Professional – Yet another sinus infection welcomes you to spring. You know what it is you get it every year, but your doctor still wants 3 hours of your busy day and your $50 co-pay. This is when it helps to have a friend with the power to call your prescription in!

9. The Legal Adviser – We all need legal advise at one point or another. Maybe you have issues at work and you’re not sure how to handle them… or maybe you had a little too much fun last Saturday night. This friend has got your back, and they love to talk law… ego boost for them, free advise for you!

10. The Travel Buddy – There’s always one friend in the bunch who is always on the go. You don’t know where the funds come from but they are always taking off to explore a new place. Whether you join them for a trip or tips on the best restaurants at your vacation destination, everyone needs this friend around when it’s time to escape from reality for a while!




Set a good example
It may sound obvious but kids learn what they see everyday. When they see you setting goals and working toward them, they will learn to do the same. Let your kids see how passionate you are about what you do everyday… and if you aren’t passionate about what you do, find something to be passionate about!

Subtly seek out your child’s strengths
Keep your eyes open for early emergence of talent and skills, but don’t force it. Expose them to lots of different activities without enrolling them in an overwhelming array of classes and activities. Let them be themselves and see what passions of their own begin to evolve.
Don’t let kids give up
Encourage them to keep reaching for their goals. Olympic parents have had to support their children through victory AND defeat. At one point or another they will undoubtedly need to be reminded that their success depends on the ability to get back up and keep going.

Keep their egos in check
On the other hand, there will also be times they need to be reminded that no matter how successful they are still human beings. Remind them that you are proud of them but no matter how many victories they see, they still have to do their chores! Successful athletes at any level are often put on a petal stool by the team, friend, and even the community… it’s up to you, the parent to keep it in perspective!

Believe in Your Child
If you don’t, who will? There will be coaches and teachers along the way who may not have the best things to say about your young athlete… but if you stand behind your child their confidence will grow. With confidence comes increased effort and eventually success. If you believe in them, they will learn to believe in themselves.
“You don’t have to raise gold metal winners to be a successful parent. As long as you encourage kids to seek their highest potential and support them wholeheartedly along the way, you have done your job.”

Did you Valentine's Day not go as expected??  Check out these Romantic Gestures Gone Wrong:

Mixed Emotions
Like an astrological anomaly, on Valentine’s Day 1981, I found myself dating three different guys. I thought I would be so clever and send each of them a box of homemade heart-shaped brownies with a note tucked inside the box. The flaw in my plan was mixing up the inside notes and the outside addresses. By February 15, I didn’t have to worry about juggling three guys! ~Mary

Caught Red-Rose Handed
One Valentine’s Day, I decided to sneak out of work early and surprise my boyfriend with dinner. My boss thought it was a great idea and decided to do the same. We left work together and since he had full hands, I offered to help and he handed me the roses he was taking to his girlfriend. As we walked out laughing, my boyfriend showed up to surprise me at work. He was convinced that I was slipping out early with my boss. He through the flowers in my face and moved out the next day. ~Kathy

Bubbling Over with Romance
For Valentine’s Day my husband surprised me with a stay at a nice hotel. Our room was complete with a fireplace, Jacuzzi and a balcony overlooking the waterfall. We poured champaign in our glasses and bubble bath in the Jacuzzi to begin our romantic evening. Within seconds we were enveloped by a wall of suds! We spent the rest of the evening gathering suds in a sheet and tossing them into the waterfall. The next morning we went to eat at the waterfall cafe… there was our mountain of suds at the bottom of the waterfall! ~Marta

What a Rock!
Many years ago my husband Josh and I lived in an apartment with a balcony off the master bedroom. One night, he took our dog for a walk while I watched TV in the bedroom. Shortly after he left, I heard what sounded like a gunshot… I started screaming! Josh came running in to calm me down. He said he’d always wanted to try tossing a rock at the window, like a scene from Romeo and Juliet. We kept the rock. ~Joanne

Mistaken Identity
One Valentine’s Day, I went to where my boyfriend’s car was parked at his job. Armed with a marker that wrote on glass, silly string, and balloons, I proceeded to mark his vehicle with words of my undying love. I waited all afternoon for his phone call. When he got home I asked him how his day at work had been. He said that a strange thing had happened to a woman’s car in the parking lot! ~Barbara

Real or Fake?? Either way it sucks...

This video shows one of those guy proposes at the sporting event moments. This huge N.Y. Rangers hockey fan supposedly proposed during the Rangers game on Valentine’s Day. I say supposedly because a lot of these are faked by the home team, so they can shock their crowd. Fake or reality? You decide.
