Dragons Riders Of Berk Giveaway

The boys of the family loved How To Train A Dragon. This includes Paul, the biggest boy of the family. There was something about the movie, maybe the Viking testosterone, that set the boys to dragon taming and touched them in their little souls. Now Fox Entertainment has the TV series called Dragons: Riders Of Berk with the same characters. Of course, the males gather around the TV to watch it and see what new dragons they discover in that episode.

Bork Reveals The Real Deal – A Review

We have two boys. Lee handled our daughter when she was younger and told her all about the facts of life and the birds and the bees. I did not envy her. I could not imagine having to explain hygiene and periods and shaving your legs mostly because I never went through that. Now, I have two boys and it has been made abundantly clear that I am to deal with these talks with our young guys as they move into becoming young men. Even though I went through it, I have no idea what to say! Luckily, Terri Shearer Trenchard wrote a book called “Bork Reveals The Real Deal about the Facts of Life” and she answers any and every question they may have and many of the topics that I would have probably forgotten.

The Bounce Back Starring Shemar Moore

You know how we feel about relationships on TV and the movies. Some films depict healthy relationships and others are just a train wreck with good videography. In our upcoming book, we devote a whole chapter to the influence of media on society’s concept of love, romance, dating and marriage. So when Shemar Moore and Youssef Delara invited us to the media junket for their new movie about finding love, we could not resist.

This Love is Forever – A Review

Occasionally we get a book to review that has us repeating our values. CoupleDumb is the Relationship blog. We believe that human beings thrive in relationship. However, relationships also have a way of destroying even the strongest of individuals. This is why we support happy relationships. Divorce is not a bad word in our vocabulary and we have counseled many a couple to split up in a healthy manner. Separation, break up and divorce could be a very positive thing because it opens you up to the possibility of having a healthy relationship. However, how do you make sure that your children understand this?

Re-Right your Life

CoupleDumb is the Relationship Blog so it is only fitting that we share how we felt about reading the book “ Re-Right your Life: An Introduction to Reology” by Jake Eagle. First and foremost we need to share why we decided to review the book. The answer is quite simple. Before we can relate to others, we relate to ourselves. Our understanding of how we operate is imperative in any relationship. How are you going to enter into a commitment with someone if you don’t even like the person you are? This problem puts a lot of pressure on your partner to not only love you but to convince you that you are worth loving. Reology is a way to jumpstart a new way of thinking and feeling about yourself that puts the onus on you to create a meaningful life.

Dulce De Leche at McDonalds

I may have been born in Los Angeles but my home was Cuban. Every night we had white rice with some form of meat. Bananas either came in green, dark brown or yellow where 2 of them were fried up for a savory or sweet side dish. Treats in our family were usually flans or a shake made with tropical fruits that my classmates had never heard of. Sundays always meant that my Dad would break out the blender and make shakes. Our favorites were usually mamey or trigo. These wonderful memories with my family were also what set us apart from everyone. So, when McDonald’s comes out with a Dulce de Leche Milk Shake, I had to make sure that they got it right.
