A Girl's Best Friend

Diamonds have always been known as a girl's best friend. The coin phrase was first performed by Carol Channing in the 1949 broadway production Gentlemen Prefer Blonds. But it was made famous when actress Maryilyn Monroe sang it for the 1953 film version of the broadway play.

The diamond is known as the king of the crystals because it was believed to instill trust, love, and harmony in relationships if given out freely. Having said that, it's no wonder that they are a popular favorite for engagement rings.

Industrial Farming is Giving us Less Nutritious Food

Some people want to go back to the old ways and have a garden of their own or meet the local farmers, but some want to dig in their heels and keep things as commercial as they possibly can for the convenience of it all... that convenience has a price...

The term disposable became really popular for to-go containers, diapers, and, unfortunately, even income. Let's hope that people wise up and realize that their health should not be listed under "disposable" along with everything else.
