Saudi Arabia:
 
Consider Saudi Arabia and the status of women:
  • It is the only country in the world where women can not drive.
  • The reason is the belief that driving injures a woman's ovaries.
  • A male must drive a woman to work.
  • From age 8 to death a woman must wear a black burkah whenever she is outside the house in major cities like Riyahd, Mecca and Medina. In some smaller villages women may be able to uncover their faces, and may wear collorful head scarves.

I have been getting quite a few calls lately about car insurance rates on the rise. Why are rates going up, even if I am not having accidents?

My mother prepared three meals a day. It was almost always bacon and eggs in the morning, sandwiches at lunch, and a meat and potatoes dinner complete with an iceberg lettuce salad, and homemade baking soda biscuits. She made this every night. Then the family sat around the table and ate.
