Small Town Living

The nice part about living in a small town: When you don't know what you're doing, someone else always does.

Strange Love Facts......

Don't ask me why.....but.....some love facts I read by Laura Schaefer caught my eye:)

Laura: Men who kiss their wives in the morning live five years longer than those who don't.

Me: Whaaat? Do men know this?

Laura: People are more likely to tilt their heads to the right when kissing instead of the left (65 percent of people go to the right!)

Me: Whaaat? Yeah, eyes closed, your tilting your head as you are reading this:)

Laura: Falling in love can induce a calming effect on the body and mind and raises levels of nerve growth factor for about a year, which helps to restore the nervous system and improves the lover's memory.

Me: Whaaat memory:)

Laura: The women of the Tiwi tribe in the South Pacific are married at birth.

Me: Why do we need to know this?

Laura: The "Love Detector" service from Korean cell phone operator KTF uses technology that is supposed to analyze voice patterns to see if a lover is speaking honestly and with affection. Users later receive an analysis of the conversation delivered through text message that breaks down the amount of affection, surprise, concentration and honesty of the other speaker.

Me: What's that # again? JK!!!

Laura: Couples' personalities converge over time to make partners more and more similar.

Me: We do look alike!

Laura: The oldest known love song was written 4,000 years ago and comes from an area between the Tigris and Euphrates Rivers.

Me: Why not just say the Garden of Eden? The way God intended love to be...between a man and a woman.

Larua: The tradition of the diamond engagement ring comes from Archduke Maximillian of Austria who, in the 15th century, gave a diamond ring to his fiancée, Mary of Burgundy.

Me: Move over St. Valentine.

Larua: Forty-three percent of women prefer their partners never sign "love" to a card unless they are ready for commitment.

Me: Amen!

Laura: According to mathematical theory, we should date a dozen people before choosing a long-term partner; that provides the best chance that you'll make a love match.

Me: False. Living proof here.

Laura: Bleep on this one.

Me: ???????????????

Laura: Every Valentine's Day, Verona, the Italian city where Shakespeare's play Romeo and Juliet took place, receives around 1,000 letters addressed to Juliet. 21. When we get dumped, for a period of time we love the person who rejected us even more, says Dr. Helen Fisher of Rutgers University and author of Why We Love. The brain regions that lit up when we were in a happy union continue to be active.

Me: Whaaat? & Why?

For the record.....why did I just post this?

Love is a strange thing......
