His needs, Her needs

After 26 years of marriage, I decided to read one of the classic books on the marriage dynamic "His needs, Her needs" by Willard Harley

The book struck a nerve. I hate being predictable.

His needs:
1. Sexual fulfillment (duh)
2. Recreational companionship
3. An attractive spouse
4. Domestic support
5. Admiration/respect

Her needs:
1. Affection
2. Conversation
3. Honesty/openness
4. Financial support
5. Commitment to family

The premise is that if a spouse does ...

Cajun Salesman

Cajun Salesman


Bubba Boudreaux, the smoothest-talking Cajun in the Louisiana National Guard, got called up to active duty.

His first assignment was in a military induction center. Because he was a good talker, they assigned him the duty of advising new recruits about government benefits, especially the GI insurance to which they were entitled.

The officer in charge soon noticed that Boudreaux was getting a 99% sign-up rate for the more expensive supplemental form of ...

So I open up this letter in the mail.....

And it is not mine. American Express bill. As soon as I realize it is not mine, I put everything back with out further inspection.

The issue is that it belongs to the neighbor who we *think* called the zoning enforcement about 4 months ago, and the animal control twice about two weeks ago.

The "appalling" revelations also expose cultural tensions and lack of communication between authorities and the town's ethnic minorities that may have helped stop it.

Social counselors saw evidence of sexual exploitation early on, but turned a blind eye, according to the ...

A new Rasmussen poll gives House Speaker John Boehner a reason to be upset — he's Congress' most unpopular leader.

The poll shows he continues to fall behind House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi in the favorability ratings.

Of those polled, only 28 percent of likely U.S. voters have a favorable opinion of Boehner, while 60 percent view the Ohio Republican unfavorably.
