Will Ferrel’s Fights for Insurance Companies

23 09 2009

Funny man Will Ferrell is more than a comedian. He’s also an activist.

In a time when we’re all debating the healthcare reform, Ferrell is fighting for the real victims; the Insurance Companies of America.

In a spoof PSA on www.FunnyorDie.com, Ferrell and a cast of celebrities are speaking out for the protection of insurance companies.

In all seriousness, I work with a young lady from London who currently pays more than $1,500 a month for basic health insurance for her husband, daughter and herself. This doesn’t even include dental or eye insurance, which she could have used this week because she had a major oral infection.

Just think, if she moved back to the UK where healthcare is free for everyone,she could save a minimum of $18,000 a year, money that could be put toward her retirement. And we wonder why Americans can’t afford the basic necessities like milk and bread.

It’s time to wake up and get real on these issues. What are your thoughts? Do you want healthcare reform, or do you want to keep putting your hard-earned money in the pockets of the already filthy rich insurance companies?

Review: Baxter of California Herbal Mint Toner

16 09 2009

Living in NYC, my skin experiences all that comes with the extreme climate changes.  In summer I tend to have more oily skin, and then when winter rolls around, my skin becomes drier.  Currently, the temperature has been up and down, leading to a combination of the previously mentioned.

Baxter of California Herbal Mint Toner

To help keep things in check, I use a toner daily.  It helps balance my skin, remove excess dirt and oil left behind by my cleanser and give me an overall clean, cooling sensation.  One of my new favorites is the Herbal Mint Toner from Baxter of California, one of the oldest and most respected men’s grooming brands on the market today. 

Applied to the face and neck using a cotton ball or cosmetic pad, Baxter’s Herbal Mint Toner is packed with antioxidants and vitamins that help protect against free radicals and cell damage as it cleanses, hydrates and tones.  And at $16.00 for a 10 oz. bottle, it’s a tiny investment that will keep giving back throughout all the climate changes.  So bring it on winter.  My skin is ready.

10 Things Men Forget To Do During Sex

16 09 2009

I work in a smaller office where we all know everyone’s business, including what’s going on in our love lives.  One of my colleagues recently came to me talking about how she and her boyfriend have an active sex life, but that it it more focused on his pleasure and not hers.  Men, why do you always forget about the woman’s needs?  It’s no wonder your girlfriends and wives don’t want to have more sex with you.  If you take the time to learn how to nurture her needs, you’ll quickly find yourself having much more quality love making with your partner. 

lovemakingWondering where to being?  Below is a list of 10 Things Men Forget To Do During Sex, developed by Jessica Wakeman, blogger for TheFrisky.com, a website covering everything that matters to women 18-34.  Take notes; this may be on your next oral exam.

Here are Jessica’s 10 things:

  1. The clitoris is right there. Yes, right there. Not over here, not down there, not off to the side. It doesn’t move. Try to stay focused and play with the clit!
  2. Take your socks off. Not a single thing is sexy about a man who is naked except for his socks.
  3. Lubricant, lubricant, lubricant. We may feel “so wet” to you from our own fluids, but we actually need to be pretty drenched with water-based lube for business time.
  4. Some women become very aroused by their imaginations, so a little dirty talk about what you’re going to do to us stimulates our biggest sex organ: our brain! (But avoid these 36 words that kill the moment.)
  5. If you’re going down on us, make sure to keep your tongue wet with spit. A dry tongue chafes down there!
  6. Unless we’ve expressly indicated that we like our headlights to be tweaked, do not pinch our nipples in the heat of the moment. They’re very, very sensitive!
  7. Sometimes a light touch is better than a strong one. And a sweet kiss with just your lips is better than a Labrador retriever-style kiss with your tongue.
  8. We absolutely adore when you gently, tenderly suckle on our fingers (or our toes, for men with mouths of asbestos).
  9. That look of concentration on your face makes it seem like you’re doing calculations in your head, not making love. Smile a little bit, why don’t you?
  10. Nipples should be a pit stop on the way to Vaginaville—get off the express train!

Review: SanDisk Ultra® Backup USB Flash Drive

16 09 2009

How many times have you gone to backup your pictures or music files only to realize that you’re out of CDs or don’t have enough storage capacity on the ones you’re able to find while rummaging through your desk drawers? Add the time it takes to click and drag and then burn, and you’ve wasted precious minutes that could be better spent watching Hulu or reading the latest gossip on Perez.

Leave it to SanDisk, the global leader in flash memory cards, to come up with a quick and affordable solution with the SanDisk Ultra® Backup USB flash drive. While simplistic in design, the flash drive elements include juxtaposed L shapes that create a dynamic, yet balanced, composition, a bright red USB connector and a simple cap-less design, which exposes the USB connector for use via a dynamic sliding mechanism.

Better yet, there is no software to download and no thick books to read, which means even my seven year old nephew and computer-illiterate mom could use this product. It’s as easy as pushing the backup button; the flash drive automatically goes to work backing up all your most valued files. But just how much does this little drive hold? A lot more than you might think. Here’s the breakdown.
