Mantyhose, Not your Mom’s Pantyhose!

I ran across a very odd story about how men are proudly wearing pantyhose and a that new product called Mantyhose is now on the market specifically for men to wear, for a variety of reasons. It seems that men have been wearing women’s pantyhose for quite some time now, for support, comfort and aesthetic purposes.

This story stated that European men have been sporting hose for several years, but the trend has been slow to catch on in the U.S. Steven Katz, who is a co-owner of Ohio-based Comfilon came up with the idea for creating men’s pantyhose after surfing the Internet and finding complaints from men who were frustrated about their lack of options. Many men who wear “mantyhose” say it isn’t them or even other guys who are embarrassed -it’s mostly their wives and girlfriends.

The Atlanta-based Luxelegwear with whom makes these European hosiery brands available around the world, has sold 75 to 80 percent of its products to men since it started in 2005.

How Dumb Do You Have To Be?

I know that I’m not a parent (at least I don’t think I am!) but I’d like to think that I’d be a pretty good one down the road.  I mean that I think I have at least some common sense that would keep my child from falling out of an open second story window!  I’m saying this as a result of reading an Internet story about an incident that happened in New York a while back, where a baby fell out of an open second story window.

Thank goodness the baby is safe, it was an odd chance of fate that a postal worker was under the window trying to deliver a package when the baby fell on top of the postal worker!  The postal worker managed to catch the baby!  The mother says she put the baby on a bed beside an open window, turned her back for a moment and the baby seized that moment to crawl out the open window and fall out.  So just how dumb do you have to be to put a baby in a position where the baby could even get near an open second floor window?  For crying out loud, put the baby on the floor!  Put strong screens or bars on the window!

There are some people are just too stupid to be parents, and yet they ARE parents anyway.  The stupid gene continues to proliferate.

What Are Green Wines?

Any one who knows me or reads my blog knows that I am totally into the “Green” movement. So when I heard that many a winery are going Green I was thrilled and wanted to learn more about their efforts. I found this Infographic online today and wanted to share it with my readers who are into wine and all things Green.

I usually prefer beer but now and then I can appreciate a nice glass of wine and I really enjoy tasting wines from our local wineries. If any of the local wineries are going Green that I will certainly be buying more wine from them to show my support for their efforts.

Necessary Help for Today’s Teens

The stories of folks looking for teenager addiction help are far from fading away.  The statistics are more than alarming concerning abuse that is still heavily on the rise with our kids, the same kids that will be running the show in the next decade or two or three, if we have any left that are willing and capable of doing so. Now that is a scary thought indeed.

There are a good number of teen treatment program websites all over the Internet full of information and that are offering their help with today’s youth, along with help for a good amount of adults that are struggling with substance abuse as well. Dr. Drew’s Celebrity Rehab show, which is on VH1 I believe is helping people understand and bringing to light a lot of the problems that go along with addiction issues. I can only prey that people are watching and that he is able to help people, no matter what age they are, with this crisis that is affecting way too many people these days. The world has certainly gone crazy, something has to come about and soon folks.

Birdhouses and Feeders

My parents used to love putting up birdhouses, they really enjoyed finding interesting birdhouses and feeders here and there and the back part of the yard is filled with numerous varieties of them that are still hanging about. Some are really old and in bad shape, so I’ve been contemplating taking some of those down and trashing them and looking for some new ones to replace them with that would fill in the gaps that will be left.

My father made some of them that are out there himself and I hate to toss any of those out, guess I’ll have to take all things in consideration when I take on this task. Dad was a very handy man and made so many things that I have to decide upon what to do with at some point, not a cheerful chore to even to think about.

This one is my all time favorite. I have no clue where he came up with this one, but it has always fascinated me. I don’t know if he made it or if he bought it or was given to him. Too bad I’ll never know the story behind it.
