Titillating Tuesday - Bald benefits

Going bald keeps you from getting crabby.

Apparently with so many people waxing and shaving, pubic lice have nowhere to roam. According to this Bloomberg article:

Waning infestations of the bloodsuckers have been linked by doctors to pubic depilation...
(For some reason I like the way that phrase was written)

Not only are there some health benefits to this craze, from an economic standpoint companies are seeing sales booms:

The global market for depilatories was worth $4.69 billion last year, according to London-based Euromonitor International Ltd., which estimates sales increased at a 7.6 percent average annual clip the past decade. Cincinnati-based P&G, Slough, England-based Reckitt Benckiser and Energizer Holdings Inc. (ENR), based in St. Louis, dominate the market, which Euromonitor predicts will reach $5.6 billion by 2016
What a lousy way to make some money.

Testing, testing, is anyone still there?

My New Year's resolution was to blog more this year. I should say to go back to blogging since I've been gone for nearly 6 months. Now it's the 10th day into the new year, and I am only now making a feeble attempt at a comeback.

So I'll take the lazy way and start off with a meme from another blogger Memphis Steve. And being even lazier, my dog is guest blogger today.

The 3 Meme

 Three names I go by: Lola, LolaBola, Preeety Doggie

Three places I have lived: little farm, big farm, small town

Three places I worked: I don't have to work.  I'm a kept woman.

Three things I love to watch: humans eating, squirrels and rabbits running from me, stupid cats using a scratch post

Three places I have been: back yard, farm, vet

Three people that email me regularly: No one. I don't even hear from my 40+ children

Three things I love to eat: cat poop, rabbit droppings, toffee

Three people I think will respond: dog owners, dog lovers, cat haters

Three things I am looking forward to: pooping, eating, napping
