The Eros diet

The Eros diet

Attention, men: You might want to start eating plenty of the following foods: avocado, spinach, walnuts and seafood, all of which purportedly will help juice up your sex life.

And how do they do that? It has something to do with a nutrient called folate — and also with impressing that girl at the office who’s into the slow food thing.

Work, work, work: Children don’t develop a work ethic on their own, so it’s vital that parents help kids learn how to put in an honest day’s work, writes columnist Sarri Gilman.

Teaching kids about work ethic helps their spelling skills, as well. They learn that “w-o-r-k” is not spelled “f-u-n.”

Spend, spend, spend: Remember that reduction in the Social Security tax that gave us a little more money for consumer spending? Turns out that higher gasoline prices wiped out the extra cash.

Actually, the tax cut has generated shopping sprees — not at the Mall of America, but the Mall of Riyadh.
