Recently, the City of Las Vegas, tried to pass a law where it would be illegal to feed the homeless, unless they were in a designated shelter area (Salvation Army, etc). It didn’t pass.

There is a park near Maryland Parkway and Charleston called Circle Park, it’s just near the Huntridge Theatre. It’s stock full of homeless people. The Mayor and the City Council don’t like that. Since they couldn’t get that law passed, click here to see what they are doing instead. Fucking politicians.

On a lighter note, I was reading today and I found four great love habits to get into and stick to everyday. So if you’re in a relationship, try these and let me know how they work! HEH.

4 Great Love Habits to Pick Up Today

1. Tell each other “I love you” at least once a day.
It’s like smiling, says Thomas. “Even if you’re not feeling very loving, the mere act of saying you love your partner will create that feeling in you.”
2. Give each other check-the-mail time.
At the end of the day, each person needs 10 to 20 minutes of what Thomas calls “unwind time” – when you take off your coat, go to the bathroom, check the mail, turn on the news – before being handed the baby or told about the clogged sink. “If you deny each other that alone time, you’ll build up resentment that compromises the time you do spend together.”
3. Touch, touch, and touch.
“Touch is the gateway to sustaining a connection in a healthy sexual relationship,” says Patti Britton, a licensed sex therapist and author of The Art of Sex Coaching. Try a healing touch (rubbing your partner’s aching neck), an affectionate touch (a squeeze around the waist), or a sensual touch (running your fingers through his hair).
4. Let it go.
“Most of the things you fight about don’t matter a lot,” says Hamburg. So when you find yourself dueling over when the kids should eat or who should do the dishes, just flip a coin. Obviously, serious conflict should be dealt with on a more serious level, says Hamburg, “but most of the things couples fight about don’t matter a lot either way. Your kids will grow up healthy whether they eat now or later.” “Being right is the booby prize of life,” Page adds, “because in the end, you haven’t really won.” So let go and lighten up – you’ll both be happier for it.

Pink has a new video. It’s quite interesting. Kind of a cool song. She has a hottie for a husband, woooweeeee. OK, back to watching Charmed and being bored.

Until next time….

    Oooo, what’s the name of Pink’s new song? I heart her.

    Ok, you know I’m from a small town, so explain to me why they want to make it illegal to feed the homeless in places other than designated shelter areas? I’m lost on that one…

    Goddess, I didn’t get the name of the song, sorry :( I should have paid closer attention.

    As for the homeless thing. We have thousands upon thousands of homeless people. All over the city. The Mayor wants them off the streets and in shelters. He figures if he makes it illegal for them to be hanging out in parks and being fed by those of our city who help them, it would get them into the shelters. He says it’s to help them, I personally think he’s doing it cause they put a certain “bad image” onto the city (like Sin City isn’t already a bad image, right?)

    OMG! You don’t know the name. How ever will I download it?? :) Corey’s in the video? I heart that man.

  • Goddess says:

    Do you guys *have* enough shelters for that many people?

  • Mr. Fabulous says:

    Is there any man that Tracy doesn’t heart LOL

  • Sodapop says:

    Tracy, no, can’t remember it. Corey is not in the video. But seeing the video, made me think of him cause he’s hot and all.

    Goddess, of course not. That doesn’t seem to matter to the Mayor.

    Mr Fab, I’ll let ya know if I find out :)

    Actually, until I read that article about Circle Park, I didn’t know anything about the stabbing or the burglaries. As a long-time resident, I want to see the park remain but worry about those trying to open a business in the area. Heck, there was a time when I stopped going to the Baskin park meetings because I was creeped out more by the people that weren’t MCers. That takes alot. Then again, I remember security coming by to boot people out of the park when it got late. I don’t think they do that at Circle Park and I don’t envy the city council having to make any decision about the park.
