I wrote about a new #coffee appliance in my life: the #RatioEight  Pre-orders end tomorrow (6/27). The price goes up $100 on Sunday!

What drives me insane about this flawed logic is assuming everyone desires sexual relations with others-- I DO NOT & if I did I would have done so. This is clearly an argument to back up those who want to sleep around. Just because it's natural does not mean you should give into those urges. We already have a silent global epidemic with std infection rates.

Introducing Google+ Collections, a new way to group your posts by topic

Our happiest Google+ users are those who connect with others around shared interests and passions. So we set out to give people a place to express the things they love. Today, we’re announcing Google+ Collections, a new way to group your posts by topic.

Every collection is a focused set of posts on a particular topic, providing an easy way for you to organize all the things you’re into. Each collection can be shared publicly, privately, or with a custom set of people. Once you create your first collection, your profile will display a new tab where other people can find and follow your collections.

Posts in collections you follow will appear in your Home stream, with a link to easily jump right into the collection so you can get to similar content from that author. Collections give you a great way to find more of the stuff you love from the people you follow.

Collections is available on Android and the web, and iOS is coming later. For Android users, make sure to update your Google+ app to get access to Collections.

For inspiration on interesting topics, check out our Featured Collections page here: g.co/collections

Create your collections today and share what you love.

Three vocabulary words you'll learn: anxious, avoidant, and secure — as in, three very different attachment styles. Useful in identifying and labeling behaviors that manifest in different relationships.

Guys, this one is so easy and portable (if you don't mind carrying a machete) you'll thank me later.
On the weekends in Dolores Park in San Francisco this guy goes around selling young coconuts which he hacks open with a machete and then finishes with a hefty pour of spiced rum for $11. You can make this delicious drink for about $4 at home.

LOVE THIS! Reminds me of time in Rio de Janiero. We drove to the end of Ipanema to the top of the hill and had fresh coconut water at 3 am, in order to halt possible hangovers...Magical!

Read this one first. It's the oldest and broadest — and opens your eyes to the various structures and formats that relationships come in.
