Xmas Trees Are Bedroom Aphrodisiacs: Gardening Express says keeping a Christmas tree in your bedroom is good for your love life.
Company representative Chris Bonnett says, “The reason is simple. A Christmas tree in the bedroom does wonders for your love life. There’s something about a big tree next to the bed that really gets the blood flowing. Size definitely does matter, the bigger the tree the more of a turn-on it is. That’s probably why the biggest, bushiest trees are proving the most popular this year. Decorating it together can be fun and once you’ve switched on the lights you can both lie in bed and admire it together. It connects us with nature and reminds us of our earliest ancestors who slept and made love in the outdoors. Social media these days is filled with pictures of people sharing their bedroom Christmas trees and it’s a trend which is increasing as more of us become aware of the aphrodisiac qualities of a real big tree. It does need to be a real Christmas tree though. An artificial tree just doesn’t have the same benefits, and no one likes to have to fake it in the bedroom.”

But there’s a hole underneath the eye socket where we used to be able to feed a tube down and I could drink without taking the suit off, because it… takes a lot of time.''

And then Michael Caine, we almost killed Michael Caine. I almost killed Michael Caine. He fell into a stage pit that wasn’t marked off, and he had a light shining on him, like where the lights are, like where the orchestra pit is. He fell, could’ve sued us. Didn’t. We had acupuncturists on set that jumped on him … got him bright as rain. The man is a beast, he bounced back up. There were shards of glass and the man… I almost killed Michael Caine, and he came out better … So it was a fun shoot, but that was a hard day.”

But in the time being, she isn’t going to jump to conclusions until she has all available info.''
Nichols has named their child Angelou Kash Thompson. She posted; "I want to thank everyone for your well wishes. Me and baby are doing great.

Prince William tells Apple Fitness + that he starts his week by listening to AC/DC. "There's nothing better than, on a Monday morning, when you're a bit bleary-eyed after the weekend and trying to get yourself back into the grind of the week, listening to AC/DC, Thunderstruck. I have to say the first time I put it on, and I've heard it a million times now, I was kind of, like, 'Well, this is quite heavy for a Monday morning'. But now, when I listen to it, it's the best tonic for a Monday morning. It absolutely wakes you up, puts your week in the best mood possible, and you feel like you can take on anything and anyone. I'd imagine you're going to walk quite fast listening to it, maybe with a skip in your step, with the headbanging. It's a difficult song not to dance to or to nod along to."

My husband and I got into a huge fight this past weekend because he bought perfume for a co-worker. He calls her his 'Work Wife'. I thought the perfume was for me. This led to a huge fight and accusations of infidelity and improper behavior. I told him that perfume for a Work Spouse is an inappropriate holiday gift. He disagrees. Who do you agree with? Me or him? This is borderline cheating!
