A new study from The Netherlands suggests that
having sex and
drinking coffee can temporarily raise your risks of stroke or brain aneurysm. Why? Aneurysms are the
result of the wall of an artery weakening, bulging, and, worst case- bursting.
Seems a raise in blood pressure is the root cause. The advice: if you’ve had an
aneurysm, avoid caffeine, and keep your sex low key.
Sex is good for your heart, cutting your risk of heart
attack and stroke in half when performed three times a week. Your also body
burns off approximately 200 calories per “work out” thus helping with weight
Coffee is good for your heart and head, if it’s black
and drank in moderation that is. Only 2 calories per serving is a great way to
get a jolt of energy in the morning. It’s also rich in antioxidants, and
improves focus and concentration.
SO THE LESSON HERE IS….
DON’T DRINK COFFEE AND HAVE SEX.

The mouth is perhaps the sexiest part of the body. It is always visible but constantly changing. Please enjoy these quotes I found for this week's Flirty Friday.
Smile... it's the second best thing to do with your
Kissing is like drinking salted water: you drink and
your thirst increases.- Chinese Proverb
Kissing is a means of getting two people so close together that they can't see anything wrong with each other. -Rene Yasenek
Any man who can drive safely while kissing a pretty girl is simply not giving the kiss the attention it deserves. - Albert Einstein
To me, there is no greater act of courage than being
the one who kisses first.- Janeane Garofalo
Stolen kisses are always sweetest. - Leigh Hunt
In love, there is always one who kisses and one who
offers the cheek. - French Proverb
I hope your day is as radiant as your smile.
I get the best feeling in the world when you say "Hi" or
smile at me, because I know that even for a second that I've crossed your mind.
Did the sun just come out or did you just smile at me?

I love music. Like many writers I have playlists for each book. When I'm in the writing cave, I love to listen to new music and new artists.
I found music from a new band out of Ohio. Chemical Empire is impressive and there is definitely talent there.
The first time I heard Desire to Hate, my jaw hit the floor and I immediately listened to it several more times before sharing it with my music loving nephew. His head bobbed then his eyes flew open and he shouted, "This is the shit!" Which is his way of saying it was F-ing awesome.
I love the layers of the intro, the guitar-work is amazing. I'm not one big on unclean vocals but accepting how artists are using them. In Desire to Hate, the sound and placement of such were perfect. I love the unpretentious, refreshing approach of letting the music carry the song. The clean vocals were excellent, his control on point. However, I feel he has a wider range hidden in there and look forward to future work. The flow of vocals with the music is incredible. Chemical Empire shows lack of fear to explore a depth of atmosphere with a stupendous delivery. I totally dig the lyrics, inspiring one to be true to oneself.
Desire to Hate is going onto a playlist and Chemical Empire has gained a few new fans in my crew.
The emotionally charged Suffocating is Chemical Empire's second release. Guitars dominate this piece while rhythmic percussion pull the piece together, showcasing the level of talent. The intro is quite long but is a perfect lead in with the haunting sound easing the listener into the meat of the song. Musically, a lot is happening but is well developed, busy but not cluttered. The timing of each drive pulls the listener in. The vocals wrap around the listener and one will actually begin breathing in time with the words and rhythm. Crazy! The tune ends suddenly with a drift, referencing the haunting of the intro. Well done and worth a listen.
Suffocating will definitely work it's way onto a playlist...perhaps, first chapter of Hawk's Honor. I have a scene in mind for Painted Soul as I rework the book.
Chemical Empire has struck a chord with me in the sense the band seems to be true to their artistic and creative souls. The authenticity of expression is obvious in the way a thought or emotions is expressed through the music. Every note, every word, every pitch and sound made has a purpose and it moves me. Music from this new artist has filled my creative mind, filling it with images, emotion and story ideas. My mind is blown, leaving endless words flowing into my stories as a result. (Perhaps this will be the band who may be interested in collaborating with me for my Dark Soul project of creating a soundtrack for a book. #FutureWork.)
Support creative artists. Please visit Chemical Empire's social media, write a comment, and share.
Another new Chemical Empire release, Cold Wave, is expected to drop Jan. 19. Stay tuned!

Break up the work week with a romantic meal. Don't have time? You have to eat, right?
Grab a bottle of wine and push your honey into the kitchen. Be a little silly and wear matching aprons. Then get cooking. Get a little messy. Have fun.
Working together while cooking fosters a sense of togetherness, reinforces the idea of the two of you being a team.
Share a bit of wine while cutting veggies and talking about the day or whatever. Maybe share three things you like about each other. Be sure to add sexy glances and sweet touches.
If kids are underfoot, keep things PG-13. However, it is healthy for children to see their parents working together and flirting with each other. Feel free to include them or shoe them out of the kitchen with the idea of you preparing the meal and they can set the table.

I love throwing curves to my characters and surprises to my readers so while reworking the previously published Soul Series, I came up with an idea to give one of the heroes a very unique tat. I'm not telling which fella, readers will have to wait to find out. For those who've read the books, I'd love to see some guesses.

The wind is icy, the snow is blowing, or it's simply a yucky night and going out isn't in the cards. What to do? Have an indoor Date Night.

Walking in cold weather is beneficial to your health.
> Burn more calories
> Sleep better
> Cooler temps boost brain power
> Boost your immune system to fight infections
> Reduces stress
The bleakness of winter often brings about depression and can be responsible for a low libido. Head outdoors for a bit of fun with your honey. A little bit of winter sunshine can do wonders as well. Afterwards, warm up with a hot beverage or snuggle time for an improved libido.
