THIS WEEK'S DEAR JOHN LETTER!

Dear John

I live on a cul-de-sac and everyone in the neighborhood are good friends. In fact, we probably are too close. All of the women are very close and we know a lot about one another's lives. I guess it's both good and bad, especially now. Because I know something I wish I did not know. One of our friends has told us that her husband doesn't have any sex drive. It's been going on for a couple of years and she's really frustrated. The guys have no idea she's told us about it. She has also been trying to get me and my husband to come over for dinner, it's never worked for us and I'm kind of glad! I think she is expecting more that dinner. One of the women on the street is my very best friend. We share everything together...even beyond the close friends on the street. She just told me that she and her husband have been secretly having threesomes with the lonely wife for more than five years and my best friend is sick of our other friend complaining about being sex-starved. Now I don't know what to do with this. I feel like it's going to all blow-up and ruin our perfect neighborhood. How can I navigate through this delicate situation? Should we just list our home and move? I'm pretty much ready for that!

Signed

Not that close of a neighbor!

A University of Sydney researcher is recommending that those who are trying to lose weight, should weigh themselves weekly, not daily. Nick Fuller lists among the reasons that we should monitor weight every 7 days: It helps account for normal weight fluctuations due to recent food intake, hydration, hormonal changes, etc., and weekly weighing also helps avoid scale obsessions – which can lead to self-sabotage. Fuller also points to a study that found those who weighed themselves weekly or daily over several months lost more weight than participants who didn’t weigh themselves at all. But there was no added benefit with daily weighing.

The longest book title contains 1,809 words. The title of Srijan Timilsina's 2014 Guinness World Record-setting book is practically a full text in itself. Including 1,809 words (or 11,284 characters) it begins, The historical development of the Brain i.e. from its formation from Annelida: Earthworm, Lugworm, Rag worm, Amphitrite, Freshwater worm, Marine worm, Tubifex, Leech. etc, Arthropoda: Housefly, Butterfly, Honey bee, Fairy shrimp, Horseshoe crab, Tick, Bluebottle, Froghopper, Yellow crazy ant…," and continues to list pretty much every insect, fish, and mammal you can think of, including humans. It then goes on to ask questions like, "What did they find and what did they eat? How did they defend from their enemies and attack them? Which is the oldest stone ever discovered? Which ancestor of human being first started to walk with the help of two limbs?" It finally ends with, "Solutions of above inquisitiveness are included in this book," which you think would go without saying, but perhaps not if you want your title to set a world record.

Twisters” is spinning way ahead of forecasts. The sequel earned $80.5 million over the weekend, blowing way north of the industry estimates of $50-55 million prior to release.

There’s a law in China that REQUIRES adult children to visit their elderly parents.

A former news reporter organized a fundraiser so that a 90-year-old Air Force vet, who had to work to pay his bills, could retire. Karen Swensen came across Dillon McCormick gathering carts in a New Orleans grocery store in humid 90°F weather, and, feeling bad for the man, decided to do something about it. She shot video of McCormick doing his job, and used it in a GoFundMe, introducing it by saying: “He is a veteran of the United States Military. It’s Memorial Day. It’s hot. Mr. McCormick was born in 1933, making him a part of the Silent Generation. Please, America, let us be his voice.” She hoped to raise $35,000. In just 24 hours, two hundred grand rolled in, and she eventually had to cut the donation button off after it passed $233,000. In an update, the reporter wrote: “No longer will the 90-year-old veteran have to push shopping carts in triple-digit heat to put food on his table.”

A man was caught trying to smuggle more than 100 live snakes into China by stuffing them into his pants. Customs officers in Shenzhen intercepted the man traveling through a checkpoint between Hong Kong and mainland China. During inspection, he was found to have 6 drawstring bags sealed with tape in the pockets of his pants, each containing “a number of live snakes in various shapes and colors” authorities said.

WHAT TO DO BEFORE VACATION:

According to psychologist Roger Hall, you should do these 5 things in order to disconnect from work BEFORE you punch out for some much-deserved time off…

Set expectations: Prime yourself and your co-workers for what to expect while you are away. Can you unplug completely? Who will cover your responsibilities? Do they have everything they need so they won’t need to contact you?

Mute notifications: This is essential if you truly want to unwind. And if you still won’t be able to resist checking in, take the even more drastic measure of deleting all work apps from your phone.

Set up an emergency plan: If you’re required you to stay in touch in case of emergencies, have a plan in place with your coworkers. Yes, they should call you if a situation arises, but there should be a clear course of action regarding how to handle these things.

Distract yourself deliciously: It is so important to find absorbing activities that enrich time away from work, enabling you to disengage from the daily grind. Whether it is outdoor activities, trying new foods, or exploring a new environment, get your mind off work.

Forgive yourself: We’re wired to work, so unplugging can be a challenge. So, forgive yourself if you need to do some work on vacation, as it may stave off the anxiety of returning to a full inbox, and a stressful first day back.

According to the cliché, the barbecue is the exclusive domain of the dude – and also the place where they do some of their best work. But it turns out that women are the “unsung heroes” of the grill, according to a new poll. 2,000 men and women took part in the survey, which showed that 53% of us believe women don’t get the credit they’re due – or the praise they deserve — for their skills on the grill. Why is that? Like I said, the stereotype is that grilling is a guy thing. But the majority of people (53%) agreed that that’s an outdated idea, and 77% think grilling should be just as common for women as it is for men. And by the way: The poll also found that 84% of males and females agree: there’s nothing better than a good grilled dinner in summertime.

Analysts are calling it Amazon’s answer to discount online retailers Temu and Shein — the e-commerce giant’s is developing a “bargain section” it will use to sell goods that are Made in China, and will mostly sell for under $20. Products will include things like clothing, weights, phone cases, and even gua sha facial tools. The plan is for Amazon to ship the products directly to buyers in the US from Chinese warehouses in 9-11 days. Yes, that’s way slower than if you ordered through Prime, but chances are that if you’re shopping in the discount section, you’d be willing to be patient in order to save some money. Word is that by shipping directly from China, Amazon will also be able to take advantage of a loophole on import tariffs that both Temu and Shein currently use.

A Florida man is facing charges after he allegedly tried to withdraw 1 cent from a bank. Police say Michael Fleming entered the Chase Bank in Sumter County at 2pm last Saturday, and filled out a withdrawal slip for 1 cent and handed it to a teller. The bank teller reportedly told Fleming he couldn’t withdraw a penny. The man responded: “So you want me to say the other word?” In fear of possible violence, the teller called law enforcement. When deputies arrived, Fleming was still inside the bank and was taken into custody and held on $5,000 bond.

FAMOUS FIGURES WHOSE NAMES YOU’RE PROBABLY MISPRONOUNCING:

Dr. Seuss: You may know this one. Theodore Seuss Geisel’s pen name was Dr. Seuss. The correct German pronunciation rhymes with “voice”.

Jake Gyllenhaal: His surname pronounced properly sounds something like “Yeel-en-high-luh.” He joked to Conan O’Brien that the only places that can get it right are Sweden and IKEA.

Dr. Jekyll: Turns out it’s actually “Jeek-ul.” The character comes from the 1886 novella “Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde”, where the Scottish pronunciation would have “Jekyll” rhyming with “treacle,” not “heckle.”

Vincent Van Gogh: North Americans pronounce it “van Go,” while Brits tend to say it “van Goff.” Turns out the Dutch pronounce it with a more guttural noise, which sounds like something between a cough and a laugh: “Khokh.”

Genghis Khan: Most say this with a hard “G,” like in the word “great.” But the Mongols actually called their legendary leader “Chinghis Khan.” And the internationally accepted pronunciation uses a soft “G,” beginning with a “jay” sound.

Matt Groening: Of course, you WANT to say “groaning.” But the “oe” in The Simpsons creator’s name is pronounced like “ay,” making the correct pronunciation “graining.”

Lindsay Lohan: When she posted her first TikTok in 2022, she introduced herself by saying, not surprisingly, “Hey everyone, it’s Lindsay Lohan”. To the surprise of many, she pronounced her last name: “LOW-en” instead of “LOW-han.”

Amanda Seyfried: Her last name is often mispronounced “Sea-fred,” “Sea-fried,” or even “Seigfred.” The correct way to say it is “Sigh-fred”.

Martin Scorsese: While commonly pronounced “Scor-say-zee,” he introduces himself in an Entourage episode as Marty “Scor-sess-ee.”

Demi Moore: She is on record as saying her name as “Duh-mee” rather than “Dem-ee.”

Rihanna: While many say “Ree-ah-nuh,” the most dedicated fans know she actually pronounces it “Ree-ann-uh.”

Researchers say that early birds tend to be more religious than those who prefer to stay up late at night. Some people naturally prefer waking up early in the morning, while others like staying up late, and a third group falls somewhere in between. And prior research has linked being a “morning person” with having generally higher life satisfaction and being more conscientious. But in a study carried out last year, a team from the University of Warsaw found that there is a possibility that religiosity contributes to the relationship between being a morning person and enjoying higher life satisfaction.

No-shows” are a huge problem for restaurants these days, with as many as 1 in 5 diners in big cities failing to show up for their reservations. This can have a big financial effect on an already struggling industry. But a new study by Mandoe Media shows that 95% of top restaurants are fighting back by charging fees for missed reservations — and sometimes they cost as much as dinner would have. A Michelin-star spot in Toronto charges $350 per person — the cost of an 8-course dinner. While this is nothing new for Michelin-starred restaurants, independent spots are starting to do the same. When one Brooklyn NY eatery started charging $20 per person for missed reservations, no-shows dropped by 90%.

Grocery store tourism” is becoming a thing for Gen Z travelers. Foreign grocery stores have become a ‘must-check out’ for a growing number of vacationers, who feel that adding unfamiliar overseas supermarkets to their sightseeing list can teach them about local food and culture – for much less than it would cost to visit trendy restaurants. Pushing a grocery cart alongside the locals as they shop for food and necessities has become an obsession with some young travelers, who have been sharing their fascinating findings on social media. And some are even travelling within their own country to check out what’s available in other places, like the TikToker who journeyed to the US west coast for the sole purpose of visiting the luxury supermarket chain known for expensive smoothies created by celebs such as Hailey Bieber [3 for $88].

Do you think you know how to clean things properly? If so, you’re in the minority, according to a poll. The survey of 2,000 parents in the US found that 26% have been told they don’t know how to do laundry properly. In addition, 28% have been told they mop and sweep wrong, and 33% apparently even fold laundry incorrectly. Can we place blame for all this on Mom and Dad? You bet we can: 4 in 10 respondents said they have seen their own parents doing these types of things “the wrong way”. What’s more, 26% said they were never taught how to mow the lawn. One-quarter were never taught how to do garden or yard work – and 24% said they were never even taught how to properly load a dishwasher.

Yes, watching an important football or basketball game – or any sports match — can be a stressful experience (especially if you have cash on the line…). But here’s the good news: New research has shown that people who watch sports actually enjoy greater wellbeing than those who don’t – and this could make them live longer. Scientists at Anglia Ruskin University used survey data from over 7,000 adults in England, and found that those who attended a live sporting event in the last year are more satisfied with their lives, feel their lives are more worthwhile, and are less lonely than people who haven’t. And other studies have found that people who watch sports in person at least once a year have fewer depressive symptoms than those who do not. It was also found that watching sports on TV and online can also be good for your wellbeing – and therefore could also contribute to a longer lifespan.

FAMOUS FIGURES WHOSE NAMES YOU’RE PROBABLY MISPRONOUNCING:

Dr. Seuss: You may know this one. Theodore Seuss Geisel’s pen name was Dr. Seuss. The correct German pronunciation rhymes with “voice”.

Jake Gyllenhaal: His surname pronounced properly sounds something like “Yeel-en-high-luh.” He joked to Conan O’Brien that the only places that can get it right are Sweden and IKEA.

Dr. Jekyll: Turns out it’s actually “Jeek-ul.” The character comes from the 1886 novella “Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde”, where the Scottish pronunciation would have “Jekyll” rhyming with “treacle,” not “heckle.”

Vincent Van Gogh: North Americans pronounce it “van Go,” while Brits tend to say it “van Goff.” Turns out the Dutch pronounce it with a more guttural noise, which sounds like something between a cough and a laugh: “Khokh.”

Genghis Khan: Most say this with a hard “G,” like in the word “great.” But the Mongols actually called their legendary leader “Chinghis Khan.” And the internationally accepted pronunciation uses a soft “G,” beginning with a “jay” sound.

Matt Groening: Of course, you WANT to say “groaning.” But the “oe” in The Simpsons creator’s name is pronounced like “ay,” making the correct pronunciation “graining.”

Lindsay Lohan: When she posted her first TikTok in 2022, she introduced herself by saying, not surprisingly, “Hey everyone, it’s Lindsay Lohan”. To the surprise of many, she pronounced her last name: “LOW-en” instead of “LOW-han.” (So, as long as she wasn’t drunk…)

Amanda Seyfried: Her last name is often mispronounced “Sea-fred,” “Sea-fried,” or even “Seigfred.” The correct way to say it is “Sigh-fred”.

Martin Scorsese: While commonly pronounced “Scor-say-zee,” he introduces himself in an Entourage episode as Marty “Scor-sess-ee.”

Demi Moore: She is on record as saying her name as “Duh-mee” rather than “Dem-ee.”

Rihanna: While many say “Ree-ah-nuh,” the most dedicated fans know she actually pronounces it “Ree-ann-uh.”
