In honor of Valentine's Day, I've searched the net for facts and trivia about one of mankind's favorite team sport - KISSING. Kissing has long been immortalized in song, screen and art (like French artist Auguste Rodin's "The Kiss" on the right). Heck, I bet there are even cave paintings of some hairy Cromagnon couple locking lips!

I hope ya'll get lots of kisses from your someone special on Feb. 14th.


~Matrimonial pollsters' studies prove that a man who kisses his wife good-bye when he leaves for work every morning averages a higher income than does the fellow who doesn't do that thing.
~In medieval Italy kisses weren't taken, or given, lightly. If a man and a woman were seen embracing in public they could be forced to marry!
~It is a (scientific?) fact that the act of kissing produces the same hormone in your body that firing a gun does.
~Hershey's Kisses got their name because the machine that makes them looks like it's kissing the conveyor belt.
~Kissing can actually be a beauty treatment. Scientific tests show that good kissing helps reduce dermatitis, skin rashes and blemishes. It also makes your skin glow and your eyes shine.
~Kissing each day will keep the dentist away. Kissing encourages saliva to wash away food from the teeth and lowers the level of the acid that causes decay, preventing plaque build-up.
~Fifty percent of all people have kissed before they turn 14.
~Good kissing is a team effort. If something goes wrong, learn and move on.
~Good, rich, passionate kissing can help you burn up to 600 calories per hour! You burn 26 calories in a one minute kiss.
~"Bad" kisses can be cause for alarm, especially if you get them often. Bad kisses may be a sign that your partner lacks the ability to be totally intimate.
~Babies who are kissed usually have a greater capacity for intimacy later in life.
~Our brains have special neurons that help us locate each other's lips in the dark.
~Kissing can relieve headaches.

PS: Sweet Thang and I watched "Must Love Dogs" last night. It's a Chick Flick along the lines of "Something's Gotta Give" and "You've Got Mail". Lots of kissing, excellent sound track and loads of laugh-out-loud moments.

The movie was warm, funny, and even Sweet Thang liked it. Great movie to get you both in the mood (wink wink). Watch it with someone that you want to cuddle with afterward.
