Remember that Easter is an important Christian religious holiday
Hence, the prominently displayed cross. She remembers.

Is it lunch time yet?

Perhaps this is what Green Eggs and Ham was really all about.

Best listened to on high volume while your boss is walking by
It's a bonus if the HR folks get to enjoy it as well.

Ooh la la
Just the thing for your pre-dinner munchies.
 
If you're okay with a little risqué
She (the Madhat Kat) creates a fascinating blend of burlesque, pin up, poetry and sketches, but she needs you to be a Patron. Just $1 a month, or more if you like, and you could be a Patron of the Arts (and get the inside scoop on the risqué bits). Trust me, you want to see this photo by Andrew J. Baran, though perhaps not when the boss/wife/kids are watching. (No nudity, but still)

A husband walking in on such a scene might think he is in for a pleasant evening with a wife who is feeling frisky. But if he were too entranced by the ass emerging from the apron, he might miss the grip his lovely wife has on the frying pan and fail to see that this is a scene fraught with danger. Tread carefully, dear sir, tread carefully.

Awesome story
One person can make a difference, especially if he or she is willing to risk embarrassment and more.
 
After spending years developing a simple machine to make inexpensive sanitary pads, Arunachalam Muruganantham has become the unlikely leader of a menstrual health revolution in rural India. Over sixteen years, Muruganantham’s machine has spread to 1,300 villages in 23 states and since most of his clients are NGOs and women’s self-help groups who produce and sell the pads directly in a “by the women, for the women, and to the women” model, the average machine also provides employment for ten women. 

Muruganantham’s interest in menstrual health began in 1998 when, as a young, newly married man, he saw his wife, Shanthi, hiding the rags she used as menstrual cloths. Like most men in his village, he had no idea about the reality of menstruation and was horrified that cloths that “I would not even use… to clean my scooter” were his wife’s solution to menstrual sanitation. When he asked why she didn’t buy sanitary pads, she told him that the expense would prevent her from buying staples like milk for the family. 

Muruganantham, who left school at age 14 to start working, decided to try making his own sanitary pads for less but the testing of his first prototype ran into a snag almost immediately: Muruganantham had no idea that periods were monthly. “I can’t wait a month for each feedback, it’ll take two decades!” he said, and sought volunteers among the women in his community. He discovered that less than 10% of the women in his area used sanitary pads, instead using rags, sawdust, leaves, or ash. Even if they did use cloths, they were too embarrassed to dry them in the sun, meaning that they never got disinfected — contributing to the approximately 70% of all reproductive diseases in India that are caused by poor menstrual hygiene. 

Finding volunteers was nearly impossible: women were embarrassed, or afraid of myths about sanitary pads that say that women who use them will go blind or never marry. Muruganantham came up with an ingenious solution: “I became the man who wore a sanitary pad,” he says. He made an artificial uterus, filled it with goat’s blood, and wore it throughout the day. But his determination had severe consequences: his village concluded he was a pervert with a sexual disease, his mother left his household in shame and his wife left him. As he remarks in the documentary “Menstrual Man” about his experience, “So you see God’s sense of humour. I’d started the research for my wife and after 18 months she left me!”

After years of research, Muruganantham perfected his machine and now works with NGOs and women’s self-help groups to distribute it. Women can use it to make sanitary napkins for themselves, but he encourages them to make pads to sell as well to provide employment for women in poor communities. And, since 23% of girls drop out of school once they start menstruating, he also works with schools, teaching girls to make their own pads: “Why wait till they are women? Why not empower girls?” 

As communities accepted his machine, opinions of his “crazy” behavior changed. Five and a half years after she left, Shanthi contacted him, and they are now living together again. She says it was hard living with the ostracization that came from his project, but now, she helps spread the word about sanitary napkins to other women. “Initially I used to be very shy when talking to people about it, but after all this time, people have started to open up. Now they come and talk to me, they ask questions and they also get sanitary napkins to try them.”

In 2009, Muruganantham was honored with a national Innovation Award in 2009 by then President of India, Pratibha Patil, beating out nearly 1,000 other entries. Now, he’s looking at expanding to other countries and believes that 106 countries could benefit from his invention. 

Muruganantham is proud to have made such a difference: “from childhood I know no human being died because of poverty — everything happens because of ignorance… I have accumulated no money but I accumulate a lot of happiness.” His proudest moment? A year after he installed one of the machines in a village so poor that, for generations, no one had earned enough for their children to attend school. Then he received a call from one of the women selling sanitary pads who told him that, thanks to the income, her daughter was now able to go to school.

Story
Tagline
Author of many things. I write stories, some of them funny, some more steamy.
Introduction
There is nothing I like more than to lounge on the sofa near a blazing fire, reading my stories aloud to my husband. Except perhaps chocolate and back rubs.

Be sure to read my stories. You can find them all at:

All Romance eBooks
Amazon US
Amazon UK
Kobo
Barnes & Noble
Sony
Smashwords

You can buy or borrow my very popular Amish romance, Simple Gifts, Complicated Pleasures, for only 99 cents at Amazon US or Amazon UK.

If these things matter to you, Tessie L'Amour is just a persona. You won't meet her walking the dog or throwing illicit bread crumbs to the penguins at the Chicago aquarium.
