"Love is a temporary madness. It erupts like an earthquake and then subsides. And when it subsides you have to make a decision. You have to work out whether your roots have become so entwined together that it is inconceivable that you should ever part. Because this is what love is. Love is not breathlessness, it is not excitement, it is not the promulgation of promises of eternal passion. That is just being "in love" which any of us can convince ourselves we are. Love itself is what is left over when being in love has burned away, and this is both an art and a fortunate accident. Your mother and I had it, we had roots that grew towards each other underground, and when all the pretty blossoms had fallen from our branches we found that we were one tree and not two."

The Privacy Issue

The issue is heating.
Facebook is facing a lawsuit over privacy issues.
My take on this...........
If you , by your own free will, voluntarily give personal information to a social network. You lose your right to privacy of that information.
The third party application LOL that is being accused in the facebook case, is just that...a third party.
The web was built on the idea of an open sourced way of exchanging information.
What information you contribute to it is up to you.
The illegal use of that information by deceptive means or non-disclosure of how the information will be used.
I hate those EULAs.

Lesson Primer For Gentlemen

Taking notes on my observations.
I have been busy taking pictures and writing for what seems like days on end.
I spent time at a mall asking myself, "Did they even look in the mirror before leaving the house?" Coco Chanel once said, "Before leaving the house remove one item from your body."
In most cases, the people I observed should have ditched the whole outfit and started from scratch.
Classic always trumps trendy.
It's alright to add a trendy piece here and there but this is daytime reality fashion, folks.

Modern Day Tips For The Gentleman

*Do take a break from using anything digital from time to time. You'll rediscover the beauty of obtaining information in old-fashioned ways.

*Don't lose your patience when waiting for a lady to be ready. Not only do you risk stressing out but you've got to remember-she's doing this for you as much as herself.

*Don't take up an entire bench if seated alone. You never know what fine specimen in need of rest may happen to sit next to you.

*Do ensure your posture is just as powerful as your suit. Stand up straight, strong and handsome and they will follow.

*Do incorporate some unexpected color into your wardrobe. It will always brighten you and your mood a bit.

*Do remember as a final lesson...that there is no such thing as overdressed. You can always remove your jacket and loosen your collar, if needed.
