I signed up to do "the official" post for today, which meant it was supposed to go up by 8 a.m. and It's well past 8 a.m., and I'm just now getting it done. Sorry!

So. What I was going to write about. I read this week, in one of last week's news magazines (yeah, I'm behind in pretty much everything) a whole series of articles about "how to have a healthy heart." Y'all won't be surprised to learn that at the top of the list for prevention of heart attacks you will find love.

It's scientifically proven now. People who are in loving relationships are more likely first, to avoid a heart attack, and second, to survive if they have one. Men whose wives express their love fare better than --I suppose-- men with grumpy wives. (Which leads one to wonder why those women don't express love--hmm, could it be that their husbands cut them off, ignored them, turned them away whenever they tried?)

Some might say that romance novels keep women from participating in real life, from actually living those loving relationships. However, other statistics show that romance readers are more likely to be in a relationship, and to be happy in their relationships, contrary to "popular opinion."

What do you think?
