I have a basic philosophy for women who are dating that I outline in my book, Why He Disappeared. It’s called mirroring. Basically, it means you don’t do anything unless he does it first. You don’t call. You don’t text. You don’t make plans. If he doesn’t make an effort, that just means he’s not very motivated to be your partner. Case closed.

Some of the “tips” from the Kama Sutra seem to be setting people up for serious injury should they be performed incorrectly, or in some cases, if they’re performed at all. Read more … Keep reading »
Craig Grant just wanted to give his cat Pepper his own space. So he created a small cat-sized town, populated with mini-buildings and streets for Pepper and the hundreds of other cats Grant has saved to live. Now Grant’s cat sanctuary, Caboodle Ranch, houses more than 600 fancy felines, who are supported by Grant’s love and care and the generous donations of volunteers. The Ranch includes a faux Walmart (complete with mini-shopping carts), a tiny town hall, and dozens of tiny houses, too small for humans but perfectly sized for kittens.
