As it turns out, I don’t have children anymore. I mean, I have offspring, but not children.  My youngest turned 18 a few weeks ago. She’s excited about it.  She no longer needs us to […]

01/22/2022 Lori Duff 0

At the risk of sounding more get-off-my-lawn-y than usual, I want to lament the demise of research using books and paper. Don’t get me wrong – I appreciate the heck out of the internet.  Just […]

As a fifty-one year old woman, I don’t have a lot of use for penile enlargement supplements.  As a person who posts pictures of her dog more often than her kids, I don’t need horse […]
