Another Year Older

My better half celebrated his 54th birthday last November 12 but I just now posted his photos for some reason. To him, his birthday doesn't matter and that he hates it. I told him that he should be thankful he has had another year to celebrate his life. He probably doesn't like the idea that he's getting old but for me it is just okay because that only means he is still alive.

10 quirky facts about kissing

Think you know a thing or two about kissing? You probably do. But the facts below are so off the beaten path, we’ll bet you don’t know them all — and they could come in handy. Not only could they provide some steamy “Did you know…?” small talk, but they’ll help you see all the benefits a satisfying liplock can bring into your life. Happy smooching!

1. Two out of every three couples turn their heads to the right when they kiss.

2. A simple peck uses two muscles; a passionate kiss, on the other hand, uses all 34 muscles in your face. Now that’s a rigorous workout!

3. Like fingerprints or snowflakes, no two lip impressions are alike.

4. Kissing is good for what ails you. Research shows that the act of smooching improves our skin, helps circulation, prevents tooth decay, and can even relieve headaches.

5. The average person spends 336 hours of his or her life kissing.

6. Ever wonder how an “X” came to represent a kiss? Starting in the Middle Ages, people who could not read used an X as a signature. They would kiss this mark as a sign of sincerity. Eventually, the X came to represent the kiss itself.

7. Talk about a rush! Kissing releases the same neurotransmitters in our brains as parachuting, bungee jumping, and running.

8. The average woman kisses 29 men before she gets married.

9. Men who kiss their partners before leaving for work average higher incomes than those who don’t.

10. The longest kiss in movie history was between Jane Wyman and Regis Tommey in the 1941 film, You’re in the Army Now. It lasted 3 minutes and 5 seconds. So if you’ve beaten that record, it’s time to celebrate!

Moment Captured

One of the most unforgettable and exciting moments of my life was captured during my husband's marriage proposal to me on June 21,2004. I was just lucky to have someone took pictures of us during that moment.

It was when I turned exactly 21 years old when I got engaged to my fiance' then now my husband. It has been six long years since we've known each other. Oh how sweet to look back at those times when we were just lovers. The time spent with each other was precious for we were thousands of miles apart before we could be together as husband and wife.
