A new workshop hopes to teach single men and women the art of flirting. Sounds like a great idea and, at 35 Euros ($48 US), it seems reasonably priced, too. The only problem is that this seminar takes place at a zoo in Apeldoorn, Holland and the tips being offered come from a bunch of monkeys, apes and chimpanzees.

Women are complex and confusing creatures. Men, on the other hand, aren’t like us. You could say they’re more simple minded. They don’t spend hours obsessing over everything they do.

Unlike ever before, the chance to dress up or down is making for pure adult entertainment as retailers are predicting an increase in spending on costumes for grownups. Indeed, a survey by the National Retail Federation® finds that Americans are planning to spend a lot more on this Halloween than the last, and an estimated one billion dollars will be spent on trick or treat attire for adults, and more than one third of respondents plan to throw or attend a party for All Hallow’s Eve.
While planning my own wedding, I kept having this recurring bad dream that we forgot to send out the invitations and no one showed up on the day of the wedding! What a random worry to have.

No more fighting for the crispy end bits or the soft-soothing middle. Individual meatloaves are surely the way to his or her heart. The loaves can be formed and glazed one day ahead before serving. Any extra loaves not being served can be frozen for up to 2 months.
