Hey all, my 36 yr old, older brother unexpectedly died of heart failure last week on Sept. 27, 2014. I loved him but I didn’t appreciate him enough. I didn’t see him often lately and when I did, I teased him (as little sisters do) but I don’t know if I told him I loved him and how much he meant to me.
So take my advice: tell the people you love, that you love them. Be there for them.
What I said at his memorial service
David was my brother, no David is my brother. And as his sister, I don’t think I appreciated him enough, because I took him for granted. I thought, he was always going to be there, that he was always going to tease me, that I was always going to annoy him, that he would always be there as a presence for my children. Unfortunately, I was wrong. David has taught me, through his death, that when you love somebody you need to let them know, as often as you can, be it through the words I love you, be through little gestures like hugs, kisses, punches, pinches, uh I mean hugs and kisses. And I hope that this is a lesson that he is taught you. appreciate the people in your life even if you don’t always get along with them, even if you don’t always agree with them or their lifestyle choices, even if they are the most aggravating person in the world, which David was not I was. Appreciate your loved ones be they friends or family and never treat a stranger bad because you don’t know what they’re going through.
So grieve, rage but also laugh, love and live. Live your life for you only have one.

My poor peppermint. Just before Christmas 2011 she had knee surgery for a torn ligament.
We though she was healing well. But for 2 days she’s been yelping in pain occasionally….and just wanting to lay down all day…. Even refusing peanut butter and bread
We called the vet. He said no stairs at all (we have 2 at each entrances/exit) and he was refilling the pain and anti-inflammatory meds. We pick those up tmw.
she is definitely in better spirits now that she is back on pain meds. Before them she was moping and laying down all day… Of her own accord moping in the unlocked kennel… Now she is up and about, seeking attention and her eyes are bright.
Just came across this blog through woman uncensored fb fan page.

Awesome article written by a man for men
Cultural circumcision: not really on, is it? 15/01/2011 12:00 pm We here at the JOE office got chatting recently about the practice of circumcision. While some felt it was largely a harmless practice, one had his reservations.
In America recently, there has been a growing movement of men, in the thousands, who are taking the time to stretch out a new foreskin in a process called “restoration.” Men find different ways to tug at the remnants of the foreskin to stretch out a new piece of skin to cover their glans. After years, they’re able to get back a semblance of a foreskin, and men are able to tell the difference. Some men have testified that they thought their sex life was over, until growing back a new foreskin, though not the same as the original thing, has helped them; restoration dekeratinizes the glans, exposing the mucosa beneath it. Since men become more sensitive, they note that they are once again able to have sex, and THEN some; some men report orgasmic sensations never before felt. And still, in others, their female partners notice a difference in the way the man thrusts; it’s not so hard because he’s no longer working to get a sensation. Wives of said men, by the way, report a difference in their orgasmic sensations too. Some people might say this is anecdotal, but the proof is in the pudding. You can talk to men at TLCTugger dot com. It’s so sad that these men have to work hard to get back what should have been theirs to begin with; a whole penis is a man’s BIRTHRIGHT.
