With the weather getting as ugly as your 5th cousin some great tips from GMAC I found check them out:


Unless you're planning on spending the next few months in Florida, odds are you'll have to deal with icy or snow-covered roads at some point. A recent survey (from GMAC) reveals just how little people know about winter driving.

Nearly half of those surveyed didn't know that the gas tank should be at least half full in order to continue providing heat in case of an emergency

38 percent didn't know driving while using cruise control, even in clear conditions, could be dangerous

24 percent did not know to turn the wheel in the direction of a skid

... Many of the biggest misconceptions come from those with four-wheel drive vehicles:

37 percent feel they are less likely to have an accident

21 percent would drive during and right after a snowstorm

3 percent would drive faster than they would with only two-wheel drive.

You know thinking about the Holiday Season, ponder this:

Think about it -- Christmas is a big warm, organized, fuzzy nuturing social deal and I have a tough time believing a guy could pull it off.
For starters, most men don't even think about selecting gifts until 3pm on Christmas Eve And once at the mall, they always seem surprised to find only Ronco products, socket wrench sets, and mood rings left on the shelves. On this count alone, I'm convinced Santa is a woman. Surely if he were a man, the universe would wake up Christmas morning to find a rotating Chia Pet under the tree, still in the bag.
Another problem for Santa would be getting there. First of all there would be no reindeer, because they would be dead, gutted, and strapped on to the rear bumper of the sleigh amid wide eyed, desparate claims that buck season had been extended. Blitzen's rack would already be on the way to the taxidermist.
Even if male Santa had reindeer, he'd still have transportation problems because he would inevitably get lost in the clouds and refuse to ask for directions.
Other reasons Santa can't possibly be a man:
• Men can't pack a bag
• Men would rather be dead than be caught wearing red velvet
• Men would feel their masculinity would be threatened, having to be seen with all those elves
• Men don't amswer their mail
• Men would refuse to allow their physique to be described even in jest as anything remotely resembling a "bowl full of jelly"
• Men aren't interested in stockings unless somebody's wearing them
• Finally, being responsible for Christmas would require a committment
Is there any doubt Santa has to be a woman?

I found a new WEBSITE last night called www.thirdage.com WOW interesting Dr. Phill type stuff i was scanning thru, this might be helpful to some folks out there, mail me and let me know if this stuff makes sence or if it is just stuff we already know about:


from ThirdAge.com

Jumping to conclusions. Presuming that you know what your partner feels without first getting all the facts is a BAD idea. It's only going to push them away. So, if you think the reason your wife doesn't want to visit your in-laws is because she hates them – when in fact, she's intimidated by them – that's a big difference.

Tuning out instead of tuning in to what your mate's saying. When your mind begins to wander, stop and remember that what your partner is saying is important to them. Even if you don't agree – it means enough to them to warrant a discussion. So really hear them out.

Being repeatedly late. Frequently keeping your partner waiting isn't just inconsiderate - it's arrogant. Your time isn't any more important than theirs.

Playing the victim. "You always choose your mom's advice over mine!" This behavior not only accuses your spouse of hurting you, but it implies that they're doing it intentionally. Usually, that isn't the case.

Badmouthing your spouse behind their back. This tells others how little you respect your partner.

Thinking that doing something once is enough. If you stop making the mistakes we just discussed only for a little while – but then slip back into your old habits - you're teasing your partner with changing. You're also kidding yourself that you're committed to improving your marriage, when really you're not.
