  2. Robert Pattinson – Introduced to us via Twilight he has girls swooning, young and old.  You’ll have to beat the fans off with a stick, but it’s worth the effort.  Robert has been a part of charity auctions and is known to support the American Foundation for AIDS Research.

  4. Mario Lopez – He’s been breaking hearts since his Saved by the Bell days, but ladies, he’s all grown up.  He’s a player, divorced, and struts, but then he flashes those dimples and takes off his shirt so you forgive him for it.  Mario has been known to support Eva’s Heroes, Padres Contra el Cancer, and Ronald McDonald House Charities.
  5. Gerard Butler – The sexy star just finished The Bounty Hunter, but who could forget him in the lead of 300.  The Scot loves to date, but it’ll have to be someone who can handle his schedule.  Gerard has been known to support Artists for Peace and Justice.

Philosophy for Old Age

This beautiful Powerpoint presentation was passed on to me by my lovely friend Tony – probably for a number of reasons, but the one I’m hoping it was for is because I love photography – and these images are just stunning. I wish I was as talented as this.

What’s this got to do with Singles, dating, partying, falling in love, finding the man or woman of your dreams, being married, having kids, working, working and working. Well nothing in some ways, but everything in others. 

Just take a moment to view this most beautiful ppt – and the music is lovely also, and you will be reminded just how wonderful life is, live it like every day is your last and make the most of every day. Don’t wish you life away, it zooms by so quickly as it is. Look it’s now 10th April 2010 – I still remember when there was the hoohah about the “Millenium Bug” and I can’t believe that was 10 YEARS ago.

If you’re 16 and wishing you were 23 – don’t, you will be soon enough! In your 20’s and can’t wait till you’re 30 and ‘made it’ in your company? It’ll happen, just enjoy the ride. If you’re in your 30s, have a couple of rugrats and wish you were ‘free’ – just look at them when they’re asleep and you’ll wish you could have those precious moments all over again one day.

If you’re happily married and you’ve found your niche in life, that’s just perfect. If you’re Single and looking for the man or woman of your dreams – enjoy every day in the meantime. If you’re Single or in a relationship, and happy in the ‘place’ you’re at at the moment – that’s just wonderful. Whatever our situation, there’s no need for us to age quicker than time does for us.

Feel free to share this post with all your friends and family. At worst they’ll enjoy the photos and/or music. At best they’ll take in the beautiful message within this presentation. Either way, you’ll have helped to put a smile on their face and to make a difference to their day.
