Chanel No. 5

Shoppers Drug Mart is supposedly giving away a sample of Chanel No. 5. It's eau de toilette ( which translates to toilet water), and I want some.
I was hesitant to post this as the last fragrance sample I decided to pick up, was in a little peel back card. What's with that? Don't they know we want those itsy small glass bottles, with the little plastic wand ? I wonder what Chanel is giving out? I'll let you know.

Monday's Sexual Health Post

Seems as though everyone is dieting these days, so I thought we could use a bit of info on sex and dieting. It's no secret that shedding a few pounds can improve your sex life. You feel better about yourself, and movement is better.
So what position burns the most calories for us women?
Woman on top burns the most calories.
I also read, and found quite entertaining, that faking an orgasm can burn more calories than actually having one.
Since it's usually pretty easy to achieve an orgasm while we are on top, my advice to my female friends is this: We will have and enjoy the first orgasm, and while keeping our calorie burning position, we'll fake a second one. It'll be our secret.

Missionary position burns the least calories, not surprising. If missionary is your "regular" position, you may want to fake an orgasm to burn some calories. Then again, if you are always using the plain old missionary position, you are likely already faking your orgasm. Missionary sex in a telephone booth will however burn calories, and give you a stiff neck.
Twin beds, hammocks, and narrow hospital beds also aid in calorie burning.
Should you get caught in the hospital having sex on one of their beds, please don't mention my blog. Anything you read here and try is at your own risk.

You need to have sex three to five times a week to lose weight from sex, and you have to put some effort into it. On the average, 30 minutes of sex will burn 85 calories . ( 15 minutes will burn off a dry slice of diet bread, and if you have sex with superman for an hour and a half, you can have ham and mayo too.... followed with a lemon to remove the smile from your face)

So what about the effects of dieting on the brain, and our sex drive. I didn't read anything of interest, but from experience, I think going to bed hungry may affect our brain. In the middle of the night, Loverboy tried to lovingly awake me to "tend to his needs" ( and it wasn't to iron his shirt), and as awoke I was dreaming of buttering a thick slice of french bread.
I used to frequently dream of a dark french lover, now I dream of white french bread.

That's all for today... stay on top of things !

Madashack lake

Today Loverboy & I went to Great Pubnico Lake, and to both Little Madashack , and greater Madashack lakes, in fine company.
( Madashack : the Indians called "Meteseg," meaning "Mixed up,")

I didn't really recall being there before, until we reached the" shiny kettle" camp. I had seen the old " dirty kettle" camp before. It may well have been from my previous life, coming from the other direction.
On the way back, I tapped Loverboy on the shoulder to ask an important question...
"Do we have to take the same path? The one with the rocks, slough hole and steep hill, in order to get back?"
His answer: "Gosh ! I found the path to be really good today. And yes, it's the way back'.

So I figured out I did better if I didn't watch those ahead. So I just held on and looked the logo on the back of his collar .
It was great fun! Thanks to Mr & Mrs Plane Man for your hospitality, and the invite for supper. We'll take a raincheck.

Anna McGoldrick tours

Anna has great tours advertised. Wonderful places.
Only thing that would prevent me from going, is fear.
Fear that she may actually be on the tour.

How do you save energy?

Today I answered that question. NS power was looking for energy saving tips.

Of course, in the summer I hang my clothes on the line, (T shirts pinned at the armpit seam...hehe)
But in the winter, after I wash a load of laundry late at night, I will leave the washer door open, and loosen up the clothes that are stuck together from having been spun. In the morning I dry the laundry in the dryer in much less time, as the clothes have dried a bit.

What energy tip do you have? Comments allowed ...

Best birthday gift

I saw the "little branch" today. She was by at work, and knew we were going to make valentines. She said her birthday was early February and the best gift she could get when she was a young girl, was that big book of valentines to cut out !
Oh, I loved those big booklets ! And you could make some envelopes too . I found this picture and that valentine with the boy looks so familiar, and so does the bird one!!

The good news

As I was chopping my yellow pepper, the door flew open, and an excited Son #2 waltzed in from school.
Son #2: Mame ! I have such good news , you are never going to believe it !
Me: Oh my ! What? Tell me quick !
Son #2 : You know that test, I thought I had failed.... well I had 43.5 /50 !!!

I stared at him with my jaw dropped ! I was in disbelief ! and before I could say "WOW"
he added...
Son # 2 : and I got detention today.
Mame: Sit down.
Son #2: You know Mame... it's like they say... you got the good news first and the bad news later....
Mame: well you could have let me enjoy the good news for another 30 seconds !!!

Good grief !

Sex, social media, and dating

Some psychologists find that young males and females who text, and are starting to date, have sex earlier than in the old days.
The reason is the constant texting has lead them to believe that indeed they know the person very well, well enough to go to bed with them .
In the old days. these things took time.
You know, the accidental brush of your hand against his, finally holding hands for a bit, then the first kiss may take a couple dates. As for conversations ... well that was hard given the neighbouring communities were long distance if you called. When he did come over to your house, you hung out in a room full of family members, grandparents too, and I had a father who loved to tease any boyfriends.
If they came back after meeting him... I figured they were pretty easy going.

Do you shiver after you pee?

Maybe your male spouse does?
And why is that?
Women, once they start to pee, use gravity to empty their bladders. Men, au contraire, use some muscles to get the last drop out, which misses the bowl, and falls onto the toilet seat. Often, soon after, they will shiver. This shiver has a name: post-micturition convulsion syndrome. It's " the feeling of a shiver running down the spine following urination, occurs in most males and many females."

Some claim it has to do with a chill feeling, after having emptied that warm urine.

Next urine based question... why do women travel together to the bathroom?

Healthy Lifestyle changes

In making healthy lifestyle changes , you may want to address some of these issues:

What time is bedtime?

What time do you get up?

How do you spend your free time?

How do you spend your money?

How do you shop,cook, eat?

How much TV do you watch?

How do you do with family and friends?

Experts say we can't expect to change it all. But step by step we can go to bed earlier, manage our time better, eat healthier, put money away on a regular basis, move more, and have more fun with family and friends !

Monday's Sexual Health Post

Ideas to blog are never hard to find.
I had a chuckle this week at BINGO, when the Hostess, who works in the car cleaning business, said a customer asked her for a "rim job". She said the rim job was easy, and over with before he even knew it. He was very satisfied with her rim job.

Of course, a rim job, is slang for analingus. Which simply means pleasuring one's anus with their tongue. Rimming, as it is often called, should indeed be done with as clean an anus as possible. No surprise eh? It is considered pleasurable, but in statistics, it is practiced far, far, far less than cunnilingus, and fellatio.
Tips for safe analingus:
  • Wash thoroughly.
  • Use a dental dam. Dental dams are sheets of latex which provides a barrier between the anus and the mouth. They are available at most pharmacies, or you can make your own by cutting open an unlubricated condom, or latex gloves or even plastic food wrap.
  • Rinse. After analingus without a dental dam, you should rinse your mouth with a good mouthwash or at least water.

Trouble Falling Sleeping?

Trouble falling asleep my friend?
Here's what I do, not that I have much trouble falling asleep . Ask Loverboy and he'll tell you that I fall sleep under 3 minutes after flipping over. Having said that, I sleep much better with him home. We chat in bed, and watch TV together, so it occupies my mind.

If I have lots on my mind, I'll write it down.
I take it out of my head, and put it on paper.
I don't write a paragraph, just a line.
If I am worried about forgetting to call someone tomorrow at 2pm, I write it down. Sometimes it's something that I know I'll remember, but it keeps popping up. So I get rid of it.
If it's something I want to solve, I write it down, and plan on fixing the problem tomorrow.
Of course, once you awaken for the new day, all problems are never as big as perceived when you are tired, and your brain is tired as well.
Sweet dreams......

Simply ?

Well for about 24 hours I wouldn't have called my accounting program Simply. It was more like headache. I couldn't upgrade the new version, and couldn't open the old one. At 9am I called the 1-800-number. The office is closed, as their hours are 6am to 8 pm, pacific.
After 7 unsuccessful installations, and many long sighs, I smartened up, and chose Advance and not typical, and checked things out. I found the culprit close to the end of the list. Some kind of manager was causing my headaches. After I solved the upgrade problem, I spoke to TS who told me she knew of someone else who had the same problem.
Simply accounting.... yes, maybe on some days.

Monday's Sexual Health Post

Good morning. Today we are going to talk about the wet stuff.... and I don't mean the weather.
First: WET SEX.
Our natural lubrication is made up of all kinds of cool stuff, and varies in taste, color, stickiness, all depending on our monthly cycle. There are many reasons we can suffer from vaginal dryness... not enough stimulation, anxiety about the sex, menopause, breast feeding, antihistamines, contraceptive creams, diabetes, oral contraceptives, and aging. ( just to name a few)
When the playground isn't wet enough, it can make the game pretty rough. So lubricants are a great business to be in ! (There was great reviews about 100% natural " Liquid Goddess" which can be bought at amazon. (Wow, they sell that?) Water based lubricants are the best as they wash off easily, and they don't interfere with a condom's strength. You can apply lubricant to your vaginal opening or to your mate's penis. I read of lubricant vaginal suppositories, and if I come across a free sample, you'll be the first to know...(wink, wink)

Secondly: DRY SEX.
This is not about "humping with clothes on".
Some women actually practice dry sex. Dry sex is very common in some parts of Africa.
She tries to remove, wipe away, all her vaginal lubrication before having intercourse.
And why in the world would someone want to do that? Good question.
The only reason is that dry sex feels tighter than wet sex, to the man. Never mind about the poor woman's vagina, especially when she goes to pee ! Not only is this uncomfortable for women, it is believed to increase the risk of transmitting sexual diseases.
I'm so not interested......

It's Complicated/Tom Petty

Making salsa is about as fun as dancing the salsa. I made the T-shirt hanger's recipe from the "A La Carte" cookbook today. Modified it a bit: used 3 cans diced tomatoes instead of fresh, added an extra can of paste, had no chillies but used 5 and a half jalapeno peppers, and I omitted the garlic powder. Taste Delicious !

4.5 lbs tomatoes
3 mild green chillies
1 large Spanish onion
1 red pepper
3 or 4 jalapeno peppers
5.5 oz tomato paste
3/4 cup vinegar
1/4 brown sugar
1 tbsp coarse salt
2 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp garlic powder

Chop all, simmer 2 hours, and bottle !

Tips for dancing the salsa: move in a sensuous, and playful manner; don't be afraid to move your hips; your partner needs to be assertive and lead strongly. You need to move elegantly, therefore that leaves me out.

Winter storage idea

I saw this in Home Simple and kind of thought it was a neat idea, for winter, when scarves and mitts are everywhere.
    • Use a hanging shoe organizer. Inexpensive, over-the-door shoe racks are for more than just footwear! The pockets are the perfect place to stash winter accessories like scarves (tightly roll them for easy storing), pairs of mittens and gloves, knit hats and fleece headbands.
