Read All About It

If you can believe it,
Police unable to confirm woman’s claim.
Boobquake –
Cross cultural education –
five times worse.
Time for a doctor’s visit –
Design from the heart -
Secret Life; Motherhood drives moms to drink.
Too risky to call ET.
Who’s responsible?
A random talk on Wall Street –
The bang is back.
Living the dream –
Family first.

I had a great time with the headlines this morning. I had to "Chuckle" - Boobquake started on Monday, April 19th as a response to the comments from a religious cleric that women dressing inappropriately leads young mean astray ultimately causing earthquakes...or something along those lines. So, as a counter on Monday, women all over the globe showed more cleavage or went bare-chested to see if it would cause a massive earthquake.

Thanks so much for stopping by this morning!
