talking dogs? this would be amazing

http://gma.yahoo.com/talking-dog-device-ready-hit-market-soon-163302793--abc-news-topstories.html

suggestion for freelancer profiles

I've noticed that there are a lot of english speaking chinese on this website who are looking for networking and business partners who post the job description - "freelancer" or "freelance."  There are many kinds of freelance jobs so if you want to attract the appropriate network, I suggest you be more specific.  Although pretty much anyone who works independently can call themselves a freelancer regardless of their field, I would say the most common professions that use the freelance term…

1. Not fighting fair.

Happy couples don't necessarily fight less, Dr. Navarra says; they just fight better, by "describing their own feelings and needs rather than labeling their partner as faulty." And the ball is probably in your court for that. Research shows…

narita airport is the worst

I've been through narita airport many times.  in the past I've been blinded by how much I like tokyo and how polite the people are in the airport, so I've never noticed how terrible the airport functions until now.

I don't understand why they would require a security check on a layover.  It should be a secure area where all passengers have already been checked and cleared.

on top of that, the security checks they do are the most inefficient of any airport i've been to.  they…

Humpty Dumpty sat on ledge, gazing out over the wall

He’s fallen before, yes he’s met with the floor more times than his shell can recall

But when broken the neighbors become his re-creators, back to his view they U-Haul

Now his shell has adapted, Bondo to bounce back with, he rebounds back up like a ball.

Reality of courtship (meant to post this under jay's discussion but was too long)

What jay has done here is expose the facts as a means to help others see reality the way it is.  It isn't about changing who you are to fit what you think another person wants.  It is about examining yourself and paying attentions to ways you can improve yourself (the you who you want to be not what you think others want). 

 

What is important?

 

Looks are important for sure.  To say they aren’t is to be unreasonable, especially when two people first meet.  Maybe…

Booty, breasts or back

If her back was forbidden

The part that is hidden

Would we covet her breasts so much?

 

Her neck is the curve

That rolls off her words

And her hourglass rests in our clutch

 

If the dame wore a cape

To cover her shape

She lets  boobies escape, double dutch

 

But, we want what we lack

Why is it not her back?

It highlights her booty and bust

 

Much of beauty is mystery
