Why Men and Women Can't Be &Just Friends&

For the most part, it would seem the answer is "yes" and the reason is deeply rooted in the evolutionary soil of our species. Thanks to the writings of John Gray, many of us now know some of the "Mars/Venus" generalizations such as men typically use language as a tool for solving problems while women use it as a way to promote intimacy. Indeed, while other gender stereotypes might be valid, such as it's easier for women to define intimate relationships with men as non-sexual than vice-versa, individual differences among people will always provide exceptional cases.

Julie Heffernan & Escape Into Life

A Victorian impetus to conjoin, edging toward pastiche, creates artfully staged Surrealist environments. They avoid the mawkish or macabre by virtue of an evocative 17th century Baroque styling and the dignity with which she handles her primary subject, herself. Good construction is essential to the success of such works, built of disparate things suggesting disparate philosophies and ages. Yet the finished product is seamless, making it easy for the viewer to willfully suspend disbelief in the face of rampant artifice. Julie Heffernan at P.P.O.W Gallery.

Pictaculous - A Color Palette Generator (courtesy of MailChimp) Etched Portion Control Wine Glass. OK, confession: I’m on Weight-Watchers. And a major part of the program isn’t completely restricting what you eat and drink, but you DO have to watch and control your portions. This goes for wine, too. And since I do like a glass of vino now and then, I thought I’d made my own special glass to hold my five ounces of joy! I chose a stemless wine glass and measured out 5 ounces of water and poured it in the glass. Then, using a Bic Mark it, I drew a line all the way around to know where to do my etching.
