5 lies about pornography addiction

Pornography is an accumulation of manufactured, fake set-up situations that are trying to appear real and normal. Just the fact that the subjects are playing to a camera and the public eye creates a circumstance that is not genuine. It is not farfetched to say an addiction to pornography would carry some of those manufactured, unrealistic expectations and ideas into an addict's intimate life.

Do men and women think differently? What do YOU think?

The game of love is played in the head and heart. Men and women really do think differently. To be honest, girls think guys are knuckleheads sometimes. It’s only because they don’t understand how guys think any more than men understand women.

When is the right time to talk to your child about sex?

If you're like most people, your sexual education was probably limited to what you learned in high school biology class. Maybe you had a few unofficial education courses talking with friends in the locker room or at sleepovers, but if you're like most people, your parents probably never addressed the topic in any formal (or informal) way.

Noted and passed - Dec. 24, 2012

• As you settle back to enjoy holiday football, we have a startling statistic for you regarding the size of college football players. A recent survey which focused on linemen over seven decades revealed the average lineman today weighs more than half again as much as his 1950 counterpart. Over that time, according to a recent news report, the average offensive and defensive lineman grew to just over 290 pounds from just above 190. We can't even predict how big they'll be in another 50 years.

Was it really Santa Claus?

Childhood is a wonderful time! A small child really believes he or she could "catch a falling start and put it … in a pocket." Nothing is impossible. Also, the warmth of love and acceptance comes from family and friends. Nowhere are the problems of finance or payment. Some children even tell their parents, when told they are big boys or girls, "I don't want to grow up." Even the story Peter Pan concerns a group of children who fly off with Peter, who has never had to grow up.
