To Pierce Or Not to Pierce

When you get ready for work, you probably choose earrings as part of your accessorial accoutrements. While some of you may go the clip-on route, most of you have pierced ears, yes?
Did you pierce your baby's ears? Were yours pierced when you were a baby? Or maybe you were a bit older, grown even, before you made the trek into piercedom.
Just yesterday, I saw this article and had no idea it was such a controversy! There are those who strongly believe piercing one's ears should be put off until the child is old enough to make the decision. There are those who say you make many decisions for your child well before they can make a choice themselves, so why is this any different? What say you?
For many it's a cultural tradition. In fact, lots of babies leave the hospital with pierced ears. There is a safer way to perform the procedure on ...

It’s all over the place, this girl-on-girl crime. The saddest part? A lot of women are, if not the instigator, the perpetuator. While it happens everywhere – from the “Who Wore It Best?” section of a magazine (really, can’t they all look really good in the dress?), to the drive-by-type snide comments about a total stranger (“She should NOT be wearing that!!”) – it can really get down and dirty in the workplace.
She’s sometimes called the mean girl. “A mean girl at work is a woman who practices some form of covert competition or indirect aggression toward another woman,” says Katherine Crowley, co-author of “Mean Girls at Work: How to Stay Professional When Things Get Personal.” A mean girl can definitely be found in those women who still feel the need to take the career trajectory shortcut (read:fraternize); most of us have enough respect for ourselves and ...
Beware of the Work Husband

An article by Frank Bass confirms women are closing in on men when it comes to infidelity. Not necessarily worthy of bragging rights, but worthy of note as to the causes: Working women have less to lose economically! Cultural expectations that prevented women from having affairs have shifted! Social media has also made it easier to fool around!
Suggested as a 'realization' that would probably elicit a resounding 'DUH!' from most women is this finding: "An increasing body of science suggests women's sex drives are as powerful as men's libidos, though they've been repressed by thousands of years of male-dominated culture". Really? We could've told you that a looong time ago, saved you the research money
Even more interesting, one in four husbands say the reason for the affair was a 'not very happy' marriage. That's twice the number of wives who use the same excuse!
So we've got more ...
