Sitting up straight.......


......could be bad for your back???

Who knew that all those adult admonishions years ago....sit up straight, don't slouch, straighten up, shoulders back, good posture is everything yadda, yadda, blah, blah, blah......would turn out to be crippling us!!??!?!

Well, OK so maybe not exactly crippling us....but researchers are now saything that this position.............

is actually the ideal one for your back!! (Hmmmm a blanket and a pillow and we'd be all set for a nice nap!!)


A new study is making it easier to ignore your mother's sage advice on sitting up straight. In fact, the stick-straight posture is bad for your back, researchers say.

The best posture is actually a 135-degree angle, which
would mean one would sit at their desk leaning backwards slightly. This position takes the pressure off the spinal disks in the lower back, researchers
say.

Pamela Anderson files for divorce from Kid Rock



Canadian actress Pamela Anderson and US musician
Kid Rock are seen before their wedding ceremony,
aboard
a yacht in St Tropez, southern France, Saturday, July 29, 2006.

NEW YORK -- Pamela Anderson and Kid Rock each filed divorce papers Monday seeking to end their marriage of less than four months.

Anderson's representative would not comment on the reason or any particulars of the divorce. Anderson and Rock, whose real name is Robert Ritchie, each cited
"irreconcilable differences" in their divorce filings in Los Angeles County Superior Court.

Imagine that....they "made it" for all of 4 months....not to bad by current Hollywood standards. And how terminally boring that they would cite "irreconcilable differences".....but even more pertinent is the question..........and we care about their sorry-ass split up why??? Did we care about them getting hitched in the first place??


6 peeps just sayin':

roflmao Trish....yes....yes indeed.....you DID just say that out loud!!

I think I've coined a new cyber-phrase by the way....oh I'm sure it's not really new...but to me it is....instead of LOL....I will, at times, use TOL (thinking out loud)....you know....for those times when our brain sieves fail us!!

Hiya Maddie....good to see you again girl!!
