Today I'm so happy to be getting over the cold I had all week...and so grateful it wasn't ebolla! Not that I thought it was, but all the news has been scaring us silly. But what I did think we should be fearful of was calf liposuction. There are so many articles, that I can't link to just one. So just google it and be amazed!
Also, if you want to read that article about the size of engagement rings: Is Bigger Better? You can download the study here: A Diamond is Forever. And what was your experience?

October is also Breast Cancer Awareness Month. There is so much pink this month - from neckties to cereal boxes, that you don't have to go far to be reminded to do a breast self-exam and get your annual mammogram. BUT, what you do need to be reminded of is this: when you go, be sure to ask for a collar t0 protect your throat from radiation - most places don't ask if you want it, you have to be proactive.
