Head and shoulder, knees and toes … and for some, a vagina, too

You can talk about your fingers and your toes and all the other organs like kidneys, pancreas and the occasional gallbladder. But apparently using the word vagina is upsetting to some folks.

Remember long distance charges? When my parents moved out of Michigan I waited to call them until after 7 p.m. when the rates were lower.

Motorcyclists, to Helmet or Not to Helmet?

My Facebook page (friend me if you haven't already) lit up this morning with comments from riders who seem perfectly happy keeping their heads helmeted while riding. Governor Rick Snyder may have the opportunity to sign a bill that would repeal the state's helmet law for motorcyclists age 21 and older

Who Knows Where Nude Pregnant Photos Will Take Us?

We've come a long way baby. I think.

In 1952, Lucille Ball announced to the world (via her crazy, whacky TV personality Lucy Riccardo) that she was expecting. CBS would not let her use the word pregnant
