“With a growing trillion debt, government should be worrying about its own size.”For spending hundreds of thousands of tax dollars to study the differences between overweight and skinny girls’ love lives and their romantic prospects, NIH wins this week’s Golden Hammer, a weekly distinction awarded by The Washington Times highlighting examples of wasteful federal spending.“It boggles the mind that the federal government studied the dating behavior of overweight girls to find out that they get fewer dates,” said Richard Manning, president of Americans for Limited Government, a spending watchdog. ”In a statement to The Times, the NIH defended the grant, saying it fell under the agency’s research mission to address the full spectrum of human health across all populations of Americans.“Research into unhealthy human behaviors that are estimated to be the proximal cause of more than half of the disease burden in the U. will continue to be an important area of research supported by NIH.Only by developing effective prevention and treatment strategies for health-injuring behaviors can we reduce the disease burden in the U. and thus, enhance health and lengthen life, which is the mission of the NIH,” the agency said.After you create your account, you'll be able to customize options and access all our 15,000 new posts/day with fewer ads. (gf/bf/wife/husband) how much do you spend on gifts for 1 year on your partner ? whats the most expensive gift you gave your partner and whats the most expensive gift your partner gave you?i know the thought counts and all that.please think of this as a survey It depends. I buy Hubby gifts not just for special occasions like Birthdays or Anniversaries but also simply because I saw something he might like.This is a complicated issue so I’m going to do my best to simplify it.The summary statement is that there are times spending money on women is always bad, and other times where it’s a matter of opinion based on your personal preferences and situation.We decided long ago that as we have most things we need we prefer to buy each other "occasions" rather than "stuff" on the whole and though we still buy each other small gifts like non extravagant jewellery for me or a stunt kite for him we prefer to "do" something.So for the last few years I have combined his Birthday, Wedding Anniversary, Anniversary of the day we met and Christmas presents and bought him a week in Dubrovnik which we are taking in May ( the last few years have been Istanbul, Marrakech, Budapest and Paris for example) .
This is a love retreat – and I’m smack bang in the middle of it. I’m not as neurotic as Sam but I do have a few scars from a relationship that ended a year ago.
From the “Making Love” retreat in Australia to tantric sex courses in Germany, the themes may differ but the core concept is the same.
Learn to love yourself so you can learn to love other people better.
These are not our main vacations and thus are genuine gifts.
We also buy each other Opera/Theatre and Concert tickets for example.
