WELCOME to Tuesday, November 22, 2016.
Here’s the story….
People have long suspected that two holidays a year, meaningful conversation twice a week and cuddles eleven times in a fortnight are among the secrets to a happy marriage and now a study has shown it to be true.
Recent research among 2,000 happily married couples has identified the main ingredients for successful unions. It indicates quite clearly that couples benefit from taking a short break away together twice a year and eating out in restaurants at least three times a month.
Furthermore, it pays to be affectionate, as wedded folk tend to share a lingering kiss six times a week, and say ‘I love you’ up to nine times a fortnight.
However, the research points out that it doesn’t need to be sweetness and light the whole time; as the average happy couple has at least one healthy argument a week.
The survey also shows that while couples like to have drinks at the local bar together three times a month, there will also be a couple of girls and boys nights as well, where people can enjoy a night out with friends instead of their other half.
Happily married couples tend to make time for at least five movie nights at home, in contrast to their usual evenings spent fighting over the remote control or disagreeing about what to watch.
Also we can state that most men and women will make little romantic gestures – such as cooking a nice meal, or taking their spouse a cup of tea in bed – three times a month.
Interestingly, falling in love with a partner on first sight is NOT indicative that a relationship is meant to be, as only 42% of happy couples say this was the case. As we have recognized for many years it is friendship that is important, as 47% of those people polled say they were friends with a partner before they became an item, and then eventually married.
Other contributors to a successful marriage include making quality time for each other (50%), supporting each other (49%) and being kind (39%).
A fifth of couples make a point of never going to bed on an argument, and 21% say the key to a happy marriage is to try to turn a blind eye to irritating habits.
Knowing when to say sorry is a big step in the right direction for 33% of people, while 35% claim to be happy because they share the household chores out equally.
Compromising on the television schedule, being honest, retaining a degree of secrecy and accepting each other’s faults all play a part in a happy marriage.
That’s my story and I’m sticking to it! Have a great Tuesday people, and whatever you do, don’t forget to LAUGH IT UP! Peace, I am outta here, Eucman!

When I was a 20-something college student, I became quite friendly with my study partner, a 64-year-old man, who had returned to school to finish his degree. He confessed, with a wink, that he had once thought more than friendship might be a possibility between us.
“So what changed your mind?” I asked him.
“I went to my doctor and asked if he thought a 40-year age difference between a man and woman was insurmountable. He looked at my chart and said, ‘You’re interested in someone who’s 104?!'”

Some people believe that January 1, 2000 is the first day of the 21st century. Other people believe that the honor belongs to January 1, 2001. But everyone should agree that January 1, 2002 is the first “sum-day” of the new century- when you write out that date in standard notation, it becomes 01/01/02, and 1+1=2. More generally, a sum-day is a date in which the day and month add up to the year. With that in mind:
A) What is the last sum-day of the 21st century?
B) How many sum-days are there in the 21st century?
