Men are just happier people (A funny email I received today)

. If Laura, Kate and Sarah go out for lunch, they will call each other Laura, Kate and Sarah.
. If Mike, Dave and John go out, they will affectionately refer to each other as Fat Boy, Brickhead and Lame Brain.
. When the bill arrives, Mike, Dave and John will each throw in $20, even though it's only for $32.50. None of them will have anything smaller and none will actually admit they want change back.
. When the girls get their bill, out come the pocket calculators.
. A man will pay $2 for a $1 item he needs.
. A woman will pay $1 for a $2 item that she doesn't need, but it's on sale.
. A man has six items in his bathroom: toothbrush and toothpaste, shaving cream, razor, a bar of soap, and a towel .
. The average number of items in the typical woman's bathroom is 337. A man would not be able to identify more than 20 of these items.
. A woman has the last word in any argument.
. Anything a man says after that is the beginning of a new argument.
. A woman worries about the future until she gets a husband.
. A man never worries about the future until he gets a wife.
. A successful man is one who makes more money than his wife can spend.
. A successful woman is one who can find such a man.
. A woman marries a man expecting he will change, but he doesn't.
. A man marries a woman expecting that she won't change, but she does.
. A woman will dress up to go shopping, water the plants, empty the trash, answer the phone, read a book, and get the mail.
. A man will dress up for weddings and funerals.
. Men wake up as good-looking as they went to bed.
. Women somehow deteriorate during the night.
. Ah, children. A woman knows all about her children. She knows about dentist appointments and romances, best friends, favorite foods, secret fears and hopes and dreams.
. A man is vaguely aware of some short people living in the house.
A married man should forget his mistakes. There's no use in two people remembering the same thing!

Love is in the air for alligators and crocodiles

Article by Lisa Cilli from CBS 4 (One of my favorite channels)

Love is in the air, if you're an alligator or crocodile. As summer approaches and temperatures continue to rise, you might have a few more alligator sightings because amorous alligators and frisky crocs become more active as they look for potential mates.

The sudden activity follows several months of almost bear-like winter hibernation, according to experts. It's likely more alligators will be seen in lakes, rivers and habitats where they live and males will also move over land during this time of year, from one body of water to another.

Once on the edge of extinction, alligators are now considered fully recovered in all of their native-range states, according to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. Experts believe there are more than a million alligators in Florida, residing in all of the state's 67 counties.

You can find them on your front lawn, in your swimming pool and even in your house, if you're not careful. Awareness and understanding are the keys for learning how best to live near the areas they inhabit.
