Just over 1 in 5 adults say they will buy themselves a Christmas present. The top thing adults will buy themselves is new clothing, followed by a new phone and then a new computer/laptop. By the way, there’s a name for this: Self Gifting

THE SECRET TO A BETTER LOVE LIFE? SEX, BUT JUST ONCE A WEEK _ For decades self-help books and therapists have advised couples that the key to a successful relationship is sex — and plenty of it. But a study (University of Toronto-Mississauga) suggests that actually, the happiest partners are making love just once a week. According to the study, more frequent attempts at sex will not boost satisfaction or well-being. Despite common stereotypes that men want more sex and older people have less sex, there actually was no difference in the findings based on gender, age or length of relationship. The study also showed that frequent sex makes people happier than a high income…unless of course you’re getting paid to have sex

THINGS YOUR AUTO MECHANIC WON’T TELL YOU

Have you ever been taken advantage of by an auto mechanic? Don’t worry you’re not the first. And so it doesn’t ever happen again, here are 5 things your auto mechanic won’t tell you (from AAA):

Always request an estimate.

Your work order should also clearly state a guarantee on the work. If not, ask the shop what type of guarantee is provided on both workmanship and parts.

If the mechanic is replacing something on your vehicle, ask for your old parts back.

You should always study your bill for doubled labor charges. If you’re getting a new water pump and you replace the timing belt at the same time, there’s no additional labor to do the timing belt just the additional cost of the parts.

Don’t replace your tires until you do your own tread test. Do a simple penny test. Find the wear bar on the tire and insert the penny in the tread. The less you see of Lincoln’s head the better the tread.
