Too entitled to be dateworthy? Or just young and foolish?

Is it Amazon that's killing a woman's Seattle sex life?  Maybe it is. Maybe it's not.  This article caused quite a stir with many people coming down on the writer of the article about her age or not being that cute anymore.  Well, a word about love - size, shape, age, and attractiveness often have nothing to do with finding love.  Being attractive can help, but that's not the root of Tricia Romano's dating woes.  It's a matter of men not developing their personalities because they think all women really want is money.  It's not true.  What Tricia Romano really wants is companionship and adventure.

Sometimes I hate design shows like Fixer-Upper

Like all of us, I sometimes give in to the temptation of watching HGTV for kicks and caught an episode of a new show called Fixer-Upper.  It's good fun most of the time - except when the fixers have no concept about cool architecture.  For this post about fixing up an unsellable house, I feel like they went overboard on denegrading the old style, which was actually cool.  They found old photos of the house in its prime, minus the people.  They don't show all of the cool features of the house, but they do show some of them like the old fashioned wet bar, atrium, and loft.  Some of the stick with these midcentury houses was bringing the outdoors in.  And though the house was built in 1973, it seems much more like a late 1960s house.  You don't get to see the entry courtyard, but it is covered by a roof which has a hole for a tree to grow through.  Let's just say, if the house were in California, it would have had no problem selling at all.  It also looks like they updated a few things in the 1980s.  Also, let' just say that what the did to "update" the house is going to be just as dated in a few short years thanks to changing tastes and styles.  I'm still upset about the atrium being walled in.  And that they got rid of the multistory fireplace.  I wish this house had been on the market where we were looking.  We would have restored it.

Book Review: Diary of a Country Priest

Hey friends, I thought I'd try something new and review a book I found particularly moving in suprising ways.  I know what you're thinking if you're a Protestant...  Why read a book about a priest?  Well, it's not like that. I think, if you let yourself, you'll see that we have far more in common in regard to faith between Catholic and Protestant than some church leaders might lead you to believe.  My review:

Having problems with California Injury Lawyer or Orange County Law Group? Me too.

Well friends, I have an active worker's compensation case out there.  And, wouldn't you know it, I have a problem with the lawyer that was supposed to be representing me.  I couldn't get in touch with him at all to make an appointment.  There is a collection attempt on a bill related to the case because he didn't take care of it. Half of the staff is no longer working there.  And the attorney isn't keeping me or any of his other clients informed of relevant contact information.  Does this sound like you?
