  2. Well this is a very interesting post! So according to this post, a man who has five wives kissing them every morning, lives 25 years longer! Thanks for sharing these facts!
    Thanks for the visit. The problem with thee pop-up pets is that when I click on the "x" I open this programme. So I have to try this sometimes 5 or 6 times before it disappears. It's annoying because it hides all my captions! Well the slideteam is going to help!

  25. I love my teeth, so I better kiss more often. And my breath stinks, so my husband doesn't want to kiss me if I am still in bed when he goes to work. LOl

  26. Love the animation. If memory serves, Sylvester had got some white paint on his back which is why Pepe mistook him for another skunk.

    Great post.

    Now where is that calorie counter.
