Sitting is Smoking
So, you’re on your way to work and you are sitting in your car. Once you get to work., you’ll sit. So how long do you think you’ll be on your tush? Believe it or not, we sit more than anything else!
Walmart is really stepping up! They’re putting their “military where their mouth is!”

When it comes to marriage advice, this guy needs to be punted!
Pat Robertson is at it again! He says because he’s been married for 58 years, he’s an expert.

We must salute the entire senior class of Bolivar High School this morning for something they helped accomplish last Friday.
Kara Marcum is a down syndrome student there at the high school who loves sparkly shoes. Her smile has a way of just lighting up the hallways and it was her attitude that helped her get elected to the homecoming court, where she was hoping to trade her sparkly shoes in for a tiara and reign as Homecoming Queen.
Her escort Friday night was Caleb McKinney, who is just one of Kara’s admirers

Many analysts said that the 2% hit would be about $30.00. But mine was nearly $60.00
To an outsider's eye, the issue of domestic violence can be black and white: Just leave. For those left physically and emotionally black and blue, that zero-tolerance perspective isn't as clear, creating a disconnect between the abused and those who care for them.
A 2010 CDC survey found that more than one in three women and more than one in four men had experienced violence by an intimate partner.)

Dear Ashley and Brad,
Over the weekend I got an interesting wedding invitation from my cousin that really surprised me.
My cousin's invite politely informed my husband and I that we are not invited to be part of her big day!
Keep in mind I heard about the wedding from other family members and I already expected to attend, I even started shopping for a dress.
Can someone explain this invite to me and why she sent it. I would have rather not gotten an invite than feel rejected by a family member.
Is this the new trend among young people?
