I’m a whole new kind of sick this week, having woken up with a sinus infection, but that wont keep me down. This week I’m chatting about having recently moved our youngest son out of our bedroom at last. The news brings us tales of relationships, from finding a new boyfriend, to marriage complications, and all the way to “death do us part.” The “Jackass of The Week” proves that it’s never too early to get a good deal. Finally, I make a hard tone change for this week’s Recommended Listening feature, “Sunshine and PowerCuts.”
A 65 year-old, double divorcee, from Thailand has taken an unconventional step in trying to find lifelong love. She placed a sign on her front gate describing the kind of man she is looking for and instructing interested gentlemen to inquire inside. Let’s hope the 3rd time’s the charm.
A Thai woman is suing her former fiance after he failed to show for their wedding. According to the ex-groom, he didn’t show because he couldn’t afford to pay the dowry promised to the bride’s family. The bride’s parents are fuming after having paid over 100,000 Baht for the wedding and food, when the groom was supposed to pay them 200,000 Baht.
An Egyptian woman is trying to divorce her husband after only 2 weeks of marriage because he does all of the household chores. He spends all of his time cooking and cleaning and refuses to let her help.

Looks like it's going to be shorter shows for the next couple weeks. Long story short, my boys being in a summer camp program has totally messed with my daily home schedule and I just don't have the time for longer shows for a couple weeks. But I did give you a little teaser for an upcoming feature.
