have a theory: If women didn’t fib to their husbands, I Love Lucy never could have existed. The loose-with-the-truth, always-in-a-jam redhead lied to her husband, Ricky, about everything from how much she paid for her hats to the ploys she and Ethel devised to meet certain celebrities.
As a marital strategist, Lucy was on to something. Though the Ten Commandments are definitive on the topic of lying, you will notice there is nothing in the marriage vows, at least not in so many words, that precludes occasional straying from the straight and factual. It’s a good thing too. Just as a car needs gas to run, I think the best marriages hum along very nicely on love, caring, consideration, mutual respect, and the well-timed whopper.
Of course, we’re not talking about the sort of lies that would guarantee you a chat with Sally Jessy. In

the rapist might have thought he’d gotten away with the vicious crime. Although he was serving time for robbery, the cops had never nailed him for an earlier offense, a 1994 attack on a teenage girl. And after seven years, he might have thought they never would.
Wrong. On March 9, 2001, Lori Gaglione, a detective in the Milwaukee police department’s sexual assault unit, got a call from the crime lab linking that man to the rape. The call also proved that, thanks to an ingenious program Gaglione had developed, the police could nab many more creeps who think they’ve gotten away with rape. “They can’t hide!” says the elated 17-year veteran of the force.
Gaglione’s program combines high-tech science with shrewd legal maneuvering. When a woman is sexually assaulted, specially trained nurses or doctors prepare a rape kit, collecting any evidence–blood, semen, pubic hair

Counting down toward another New Year, I resuscitate my abandoned list of Things to Do and run my eye over the so-called resolutions I cheerily, and – yes – resolutely, proclaim year after year. The list is in no way unique; indeed, it comprises the standard jumble of platitudes that are enumerated on anyone’s typical inventory: I resolve to follow a healthier diet, watch my weight, get enough sleep, do more good deeds, etc., etc., etc. As with the case of many such lists, mine mainly catalogues ways to rectify some bad habits. If I feel really brave, I add a few items that might, in the words of prayer, “forgive” some unintentional “trespasses.” Then I follow my usual scenario: I methodically write out my resolutions on a tidy lined index card, place it in my purse, and promptly forget I put it there. That

Many people snore but it does not mean that this condition should be considered normal. However, it is essential to consider “bad sleep” as a natural consequence of snoring. This is because the muscles within the throat will gradually lose strength as a person ages. In some cases, the muscles become weak before their due because of the person’s unhealthy lifestyle. If the muscles within the throat are weak, these will become less resistant to vibration.
Snoring can be a pain for everyone!
It is also extremely important to understand that being overweight can be a contributing factor to snoring. Fats may deposit within the throat making the air passageway narrower. Cigarette smoking and excessive alcohol consumption can also predispose this condition. The harmful substances contained within the cigarettes can weaken the muscles and inflame the membranes within the throat and the nasal passageway. Alcohol is a relaxant thus it can make the muscles relax and become more susceptible to vibration.
You can prevent all of this mayhem by maintaining a healthy lifestyle. It is encouraged to maintain a balanced diet and exercise regularly. If your snoring is infrequent and is only caused by a relaxant, you should consider wearing a snoring mouthpiece. These devices can give instant results. However, snoring mouthpieces may not be effective for all cases of snoring.
Stop snoring mouthpieces have been proven effective for mild to moderate cases of snoring. These devices reduce snoring by increasing the size of the air passageway. But there are cases of snoring that require Stop Snoring Fast And Find Better Sleep! continued »

Here’s your seven-day planner for great awakenings:
Monday: You need rewards. How about sex? It’s the heavy artillery of morning motivators and the only trump card that beats the second-most-compelling reward for a hard-working guy: sleeping forever.
“If the biggest reward in your morning is sleeping in, you’ll do it,” says Joseph Rock, Psy. D., a Cleveland psychologist. Poor wakers need to find a reward that can compete with the thrill of the pillow. “Do whatever you like, as long as it gets you going,” Rock says. “Have a meal you like for breakfast, have ‘sex with your wife.” Have sex with your wife over breakfast if that’s what it takes. Just make sure to schedule something every day that’ll motivate you to crawl out from under the comforter. Make one breakfast a week doughnut day (just one, Homer).

iN THE HILL COUNTRY NORTH OF SAN Antonio, where the Texas flats give way to rocky bluffs of mesquite scrub, juniper, and live oak, Marco and Pauline Waterreus found their dream house. It was a roomy, wood-beamed ranch with horse sheds in back–the ideal place to put down roots with their four freckle-faced boys and growing menagerie of goats, horses, dogs, cats, hamsters, bunnies, and fish. Now that they were settled, Marco was preparing to leave his civilian job at Kelly Air Force Base and expand his own business as an architectural landscaper. He and Pauline were in love, and life was good. That was in January 1996.
A year later, their dream was history.
One day in November while tinkering with his lawn mower, Marco had trouble loosening a bolt with his left hand. Two months later, he started to limp. Pauline, a nurse,
