Dating has become easier for everyone due to the emergence and success of online dating websites.

But when you start chatting back and forth, the other person is typing recognizable words along with small clusters of letters here and there. What are they saying?

What is Evil Eye?

What is Evil Eye?

by: Sam Stevens

The Evil Eye has been around since the beginning of time. It simply means sending someone a thought that seems intrusive or invasive or has the power to hurt him or her. The bad fortune that results is considered to have been caused by envy. The evil eye is not necessarily considered to be intentional or associated with witchcraft or sorcery. Oddly enough, this thought form could actually be complimentary in nature. The origins of the Evil Eye are Middle-Eastern and Mediterranean.

Sending someone the evil eye comes from the concept that we all have a Third Eye, located in the center of our forehead...

Regardless of where you fall, deep skin moisturizing is a cost effective and simple way to take hold of the hands of time and rein it in.

Mother In Good Humor

by: Sherri L Dodd

Children – the little buggers can drain your energy, break your valuables and absolutely send you to the moon sometimes. The range of trouble can go from babies with their high decibel crying to toddlers with their never-ending, cluttering curiosity to your preschooler with his gripes and whines and on to your grade-schooler with her indignant attitudes. I have not yet the privilege of the higher ages yet, but I hear it escalates to over-sensitivity and highly dramatic meltdowns. With all this chaos, you have to wonder sometimes why we make the commitment to enter into motherhood.
