The Sunshine State Now The Hurricane State?
Wilma officially struck Florida this morning, making it the 12th hurricane to hit US shores this year. Winds were said to be in the 125 mph range. Hundreds of thousands of folks in the Key West and Miami area are said to be without power and already one death in Florida is being blamed on the storm. Forecasters say Wilma is now a category 3 hurricane.
Putting PMS To Rest
A study in the Obstetrics and Gynecology journal reported that diet plays a vital role in reducing the mood wings, bloating, breast tenderness and blemishes that occur right before menstruation. Apparently the reason behind these uncomfortable symptoms is an imbalance in your body’s hormones; there is too much estrogen compared to the progesterone in the system. It is now believed that by eating a low-fat, vegetarian diet that includes legumes and whole grains you can increase the sex hormone-binding globulin in the blood which will keep hormones in check. At the very least women are encouraged to eat more vegetables, fruits, nuts and seeds – easy on the nuts though…. Just kidding.
Karate Chop To the Population
Dai Zhicheng, director of the Chinese Health Ministry’s Committee of AIDS Experts says China can reach an estimated 10 million AIDS cases if the disease is not seriously addressed in the near future. China has a population of 1.3 billion. China officially says it presently has 840,000 HIV/AIDS cases, but insiders say the number is grossly underestimated. China is now pouring millions of dollars into campaigns to inform the public, but the difficulty in finding work in the country have led to an increase in drug abuse and prostitution.
Cruising and the Down Low
As discussed in earlier blog posts, the Down Low is NOT a new thing; although many in the media would have you believe it is. What is amazing is the number of arrests that have taken place recently in what’s known as “cruising” in public places. That is, some down low men will gather in public bathrooms, gym locker rooms, even train station waiting areas to meet other men. Police even reported one man as specifically asking, “How long will I be detained? I have to pick up my daughter from school.” Cruising, like the down low, is not a new occurrence, but the increased arrests and the ever-more-clever gathering places begs the question – Is it easier to just come clean with your interests?
Long Story Short
Carmen C. held a banging gathering at her home Saturday. A small group of us – well, not so small when you consider Carmen was dishing out some pretty flavorful treats – gathered at her home just outside the city limits here in NYC. The mouth-watering teasers included everything from a hardy cheese dip to caramelized scallops. The grade-A chef even threw-down some pernil, pastelillos and even a personalized candle to take home while you luxuriate and massage your full stomach. Carmen also showed off her trick pelvis while breaking down some light-footed salsa moves. All-in-all, the festivities were a HUGE success. Thanks for the invite Carmen! James, oh James!?! Thanks for closing out my Saturday night with a BANG. By the way, my lower back is blown-out and it’s taking me a few minutes to stabilize myself before standing – hope that wasn’t your goal. …wink, wink. Frankie H.’s funeral arrangements are still in the works and a Friday service date is expected – I’ll keep folks posted. Late tonight and tomorrow there will be reruns of the first episode of Noah’s Arc on the Logo Channel – please check your local listings. The second episode of NA will air on Wednesday night. A few invites have been sent to me for Halloween – J’Moo are you joining me for anything this year?!
How long is too long? This weekend I came across two beautiful ladies who hadn’t been in a serious relationship in years. How long is too long? Can waiting for the perfect man lead to a waste of prime dating years? What can they do to attract the right kind of man?
Keep passin’ the open windows…
