I would respectfully like to add an important video to the discussion about guns...

What do you love about everyday interactions? The little acts of kindness you see as you go about

your life?

I like the occasional cashier who helps the little frail old man with shaking hands write his check, bag his groceries... I've seen them check dates on food for them to be sure they're not expired, or tie up the bag of apples. I like when they're more patient with our elderly people and don't rush them, huffing and stomping in frustration.

I like when people in line behind the little old man don't start huffing, grumbling and fidgeting while the little old man goes so slowly. When they realize it will be them one day.

I like people who smile and hold open the door, not as an afterthought, but just out of courtesy.

I like when people help a mom with a stroller and toddlers up or down the stairs without even thinking about it.

I like when teenage kids help a person with a heavy suitcase or large parcel up and down stairs or going through doorways.

I like when that guy doing 100 mph around the curve lets me in because my little car doesn't go quite as fast as his, without honking or blasting up my ass.

I like when people actually slow down at crosswalks to let people make their way. It's nice not to be run over!

I like when people come to a full stop at an intersection and look in all directions and let the other person go first, because you know, it doesn't really matter if I get there 3 seconds sooner.

I like when someone doesn't start grimacing and making faces and tsk tsk sounds when a toddler is acting up, because, you know, toddlers do. I like when a total stranger takes a moment to distract the toddler (in a cart, perfectly safe of course) from her tantrum with a smile or funny face or a simple 'hello baby!'

I like when people stop to help someone who's dropped something...

I like when the person with full shopping cart lets the guy on his short lunch break cut ahead in line with his sandwich and bottle of water instead of making them wait 10 minutes.

I like when strangers help someone looking clearly confused and lost, giving them directions.

What kindnesses have you witnessed that make you smile? What kindnesses do you practice every day?

Top 10 Women Tennis Players of all time, guess who is number 1?

And I'll tell you what; the women on this list, with but one exception and all of whom are incredible; have slender, slim, muscular bodies that could (arguably) be described as 'masculine.' The only exception IS Serena Williams, who's body shape is deliciously curvy and muscular, at the same time. She got a lot of grief early in her career for being 'too busty'; you see, according to critics, her boobs would get in the way!

Maybe it's time for the menfolk to re-evaluate their own definition of 'masculine'. Maybe Ms. Williams is re-defining the real shape of women!

Hey, what is masculine these days? Firemen are masculine! I like firemen....
