PLEASE JOIN ME DECEMBER 3, 2011 FORMAL CHARITY EVENT RAISING FUNDS FOR LLS!

As many of you know, my mother was diagnosed with leukemia in 2010 and since then I’ve become a tireless advocate in raising funds to fight this disease. I am proud to say that my Mom is doing pretty well since her diagnosis and I am very thankful for this. The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS) has been instrumental in their overall assistance as our family has navigated the road of dealing with leukemia and assisting our mother in living the best life she can live while fighting this disease at age 73.

I am requesting your donations to help fund the research and ultimately a cure for blood cancers. Additionally, I seek to bring emphasis and exposure to the very necessary cause of minorities and people of color becoming much more educated about the diseases of leukemia and lymphoma and the importance of becoming a bone marrow donor.

Please join me in funding the research to find cures for Leukemia, Lymphoma and Myeloma and all blood cancers, by supporting my fundraising event on Saturday, December 3, 2011 in Atlanta, Georgia! It is sure to be a delightful night packed with impressive entertainment, a delectable dinner prepared by an award-winning chef and a special surprise guest speaker. This is a semi-formal all black and white affair, sure to be a huge night of remembrance for you as well as me!

If you are unable to attend this event, please give consideration to making a donation to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society in lieu of your presence. As always, I am very much obliged for your support. Stay tuned on this blog page and my other sites for additional information. Thank you.

Tickets may be purchased on my web site: daisy-roberts.com via Paypal. Tickets must be purchased by October 31, 2011 to ensure your seat as there will be no ticket sales at the door during the day of the event! Keep up with details as we approach the date on the following links below.

7 Healthy Reasons to Have Sex (Right Now!)

7 Healthy Reasons to Have Sex (Right Now!) By Madeline Vann, MPHPat F. Bass III, MD, MPH
everydayhealth.com

As if the big “O” wasn’t reason enough to get busy, sex has many other benefits that just might surprise you.

Want to clear your complexion, boost your mood, and cut your risk of cancer, heart disease, and other health hazards? No, the answer isn’t in a magic pill — it’s between your sheets. That’s right — a little lovin’ can boost your overall health in many surprising ways.

“There have been lots of studies describing the health benefits of sex,” says licensed sex therapist and sexuality educator Sandra L. Caron, PhD, professor of family relations and human sexuality at the University of Maine’s College of Education and Human Development in Orono. “Most of them relate to achieving orgasm. Nobody says you have to be with someone to do that.”

That’s an intriguing sex tip for people who do not have a committed partner — self-pleasuring can offer sex benefits, especially those specifically related to having a good orgasm.

So, whether you’re coupled up or flying solo, check out this list of healthy side effects of sex:

1.Improved heart health. Just like any physical activity, healthy sex is good for your heart. Several studies have found that your risk of dying from a heart disease event such as stroke or heart attack goes down as the frequency of your good orgasms increase over time. And for those that worry that the exertion involved in sex is a threat to the heart, analyses show that the most sexually intense moments (assuming you aren’t unusually vigorous in your activities) place about the same demand on your heart as walking 4 to 6 miles an hour. Of course, it helps your heart and your sex life overall to stay in shape.

2.Sweet pain relief. Just looking at your partner (or even a photo of your partner) can help ease pain. When anesthesiologists showed people taking part in a study photos of their romantic partners or photos of attractive strangers, or asked them to engage in a word game, they found that looking at romantic partners significantly dulled the experience of pain. So even though you might think pain is a barrier to sex, consider this one sex benefit worth the time and effort: take a moment to really look at your lover. Other studies have found that women may get some relief from menstrual cramps through a good orgasm.
3.Less stress. Healthy sex offers the same soothing effects of sugary comfort foods when it comes to reducing stress. Researchers theorize that this stress reduction occurs because the pleasure pathways of the brain are triggered by sex (just as they are, for some, by sweet treats) — and it looks like this effect is a little bit more lasting than we often think.
4.Cancer prevention. Research has suggested that men may reduce their risk of prostate cancer proportionately to their good orgasms and the stimulation of their testicles. While more research is needed, this would certainly be a welcome sex benefit.
5.Better sleep. Although experts are not sure exactly why sex works to improve sleep, there appears to be some evidence that it does. So don’t be too surprised if you and your partner doze off shortly after a satisfying sexcapade — and wake up feeling refreshed!
6.Better mood. It’s no wonder you’ve got a more positive outlook post-sex: There are biochemical rationales for experiencing improved mood as a sex benefit, from the neurotransmitters that may be released during healthy sex to the mood enhancers contained in semen itself. “And”, adds Caron, “there’s a lot to be said simply for the mood-boosting effect of having a nice connection with somebody that you trust and care about.”
7.Glowing skin. That fabled ‘morning-after’ glow? It’s not just your imagination: You really do look better after having sex. “Sex even helps you look younger,” says Caron. That glow can be attributed to a combination of stress relief, better mood, and the flush of blood under your skin that’s a natural part of the arousal process.
Enjoying a healthy sex life is one of the great joys in life. Knowing intimacy could be a boon for your long-term health as well makes it that much more pleasurable.

Some of the Essence of Me…Daisy Roberts

2011-Jan 2

To learn more about me, (more than you wanted to know, perhaps) see below and also check out my web site at http://daisy-roberts.com

1. Any other forty-something women out there who are members of Club Hysterectomy and just can’t get enuf of f#%king…or is it just me?

2. Why do “Christians” judge others but find no fault in themselves?

3. Readers often ask me where do my ideas for my characters and plots come from. My answer is from my everyday life and experiences. When I get writers’ block, I take a ride on MARTA (ATL’s public transp.) or go to our equivalent of Greenwich Village; L5P and people watch or go and sit in any hospital emergency room or checkout ATL’s busy airport. After a couple of hours of doing this, I no longer have writers’ block and have enough material for at least 5 more chapters.

4. Just because I write sex scenes doesn’t make my material porn. Without those steamy scenes, the story line wouldn’t make sense. And if my sex scenes don’t make you want to act them out; then I haven’t written them properly.

5. Don’t confuse Daisy with Judy, they are mutually exclusive women.

6. If I receive a text message from a guy after midnight asking me to come over & service him, is that a booty text?

7. What ever happened to courting?

8. An orgasm a day(actually does) keeps the insanity away.

9. Have you heard about the serial rapist on a bicycle in Stone Mountain, Ga? This is true, not made up.

10. My Mom had to show me how to insert a tampon. Normal, right…except I was age 39 when she taught me. This too is true, not made up.

11. While talking to my daughter on my cell phone, I asked her to call my cell number so I could locate my phone.

12. And y’all thought I was crazy….
