12 Signs Your Family Is Dysfunctional

With the holidays around we're all spending lots of time of time with our families, which is good for the most part. But, if your family is anything like mine, it's probably a little dysfunctional. Not sure if your family is considered 'dysfunctional'? Well, if you answer 'yes' to most of these questions, your family probably is. I'm sorry in advance, and I feel your pain.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much.

I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe.
