We then follow a long-term system with tight ceilings, never diverging from it. At the end of the day, nothing matters except for results and records. If anyone tells you they always win, and aggressively try to take your money, they are complete frauds. We call that chasing unicorns. We will loose. The goal is simply to win more than you loose and strike only when it is financially right. Our transparent history and records make us the number-one sports investment firm on the planet.
Boston Bruins went for the kill last night as we only lay and they win by 4 goals. Great start to the year [ Did not finish off the year how we wanted but how can we complain? We finish 4 months of football, basketball and hockey with [ We will be ending a break even week today with a two game teaser.
We are 5 out of 7 this year with Teasers. We bang out a win to recover from a loss earlier this week with NM State winning outright last night in fun fashion. The glassblowing was fascinating, the water views of Venice during our taxi ride, terrific! Unfortunately we succumbed to the beauty of the showroom and spent a nice little bundle on a unique set of glassware and two classic prosecco glasses you are not obligated to buy in any way.
I'm also still dreaming of a black lily chandelier, the chandeliers were fabulous, reasonable and negotiable. A chandelier will definitely be purchased next time!!! In Italy, you will see lots of "Murano Glass. The glass at the factory is real hand, not machine, made. The demonstration is remarkable and worth the time. Afterwards, you will see pieces that are quite inexpensive and some that are insanely high priced. Murano is worth a visit. So glad we made the trip to see the glass factory in Murano. It is incredible to be able to watch the beautiful objects that they make.
They do have glassware for sale - very expensive - but it is still nice to see such wonderful things. The people were very nice, too. Dear visitor, thank you for your visit I am glad you enjoy the visit, glass produccion is always facinating. Everyone become a child.
We got to go to a glass demonstration here as part of our tour contiki It was incredible how they blow the glass, so very clever and delicate. It didn't go for very long, but we got to see a vase being made and then a glass horse, then we got to look around the shop for a while.

And so, Kim in Iron Man rebutts Dave's accusation with her reply that wanting is part of loving for her kind of women. A drawback to women as emotional drivers is when they focus on security so that love becomes just another mean to this basic end.
That men take an exception to this is clear from Ross in Dividing Line , who confirms to Kerry that the latter wants to hold off sex until she has a ring on her finger and their signature on a paper. Since men can compartmentalize sexual love and respond to women who most match their libido and women hedge their sexual response to men over emotional attachment and security , the two sexes arrive at cross purposes with each other. In Storm Passage , Nick voices just such a frustration to Tara who he says doesn't even recognize this difference. A lack of understanding of the divergent currents driving men and women easily transpire into mistrust so much so that in The Man from Tripoli , despite the security blanket provided by her marriage, Lisa elects to leave Bryn because, without marital fidelity , she finds sexual love unconvincing.
Sexual jealousy, albeit of her own sister, sows mistrust in Lyn's relationship with Andreas in Dangerous Moonlight In Curtain Call , Ryan tells Kerry that for men a career would suffice whereas women want a home and a family. Therefore, Kay's men don't see the point in marriage unless it lasts.
While proposing marriage to Gemma in Never Trust a Stranger , Logan wants to convince himself that he can stay in it indefinitely and as such can't help but talk only about himself: Gemma doesn't bore him, she doesn't fill the place with clutter, to which Gemma secretly smiles thinking to herself that just give her time.

The married men in Kay's stories show steadfastness in their commitment and no amount of ambivalence from their wives can shake them out of the will to make the marriage work. For example, in Remember This Stranger , the wife, suffering from amnesia, refuses to accept the man as her husband despite all evidence pointing to this fact. The man, suffering from rejection, refuses to give up on her. However, keeping with the assertion made in Full Circle that a man's spontaneous attraction to a woman does not come with strings attached, Bryn, in The Man from Tripoli , doesn't apologise to Lisa for flirting with other women.
And Dave, in The Iron Man , answers Kim's question of marital infidelity with a question of his own that if another woman takes undue interest in him, then what is she doing about it? Kay weaves this complexity into the couple's relationship to counter the paranoia she finds in women of jumping to suspect their partners of infidelity. In an opposite situation when Brad in Opportune Marriage suspects Lisa of infidelity, he confronts her directly but his emotions go flat when he asks whether she is in love.
This is in keeping with another assertion made in Full Circle that vast majority of women cannot commit to a sexual relationship without some emotional attachment. In Full Circle , the couple's marriage falls apart when Steve is unable to tolerate Sara's infidelity on the basis that sex aside, she must have been emotionally attached to the other man. Lisa in Opportune Marriage acknowledges that she was emotionally unfaithful to her husband if not sexually.
She went to this other man for friendship that meant gentleness, tenderness and kindness, which for her construed an emotional cocoon. As Brad in Opportune Marriage says for everything that he was not. While Brad realizes what was lacking in him, Sara convinces Steve in Full Circle that her past indiscretion was an attempt at stark revenge for which she had no emotional attachment and that she reserved her deep love for him only.

Having established a marital relationship on the basis of sexual compatibility and fidelity, the couple's personal knowledge of each other's virtues and vices come only with time. Soon after their marriage In Dangerous Moonlight , Andreas asks Lyn that she doesn't really know him, does she?
Although she is mortified by this discovery, he is unperturbed. Lyn finally realizes that she has all the years ahead of her to find out the answer to his query. To Sara's assertion in Full Circle that men are at their most vulnerable in the aftermath of sexual intercourse , a more experienced Ailsa tells her that men even then know what make them tick. It is In No Passing Fancy that a father advises his daughter, who demands more alone-time with her husband, saying that a man's career is his pride, and so not to get him away from it.
A failure in career constitutes actual vulnerability in men. In Full Circle , we learn that when a man is sick, depressed, or faces a setback in his career, is also when the woman can penetrate into his ego. And more than anyone else, a woman in the role of his wife, who knows the man from the inside, has the upper hand to witness him at his most vulnerable and then use the knowledge to her advantage. Kay charts the progress of desire, from curiosity to intimacy , and then writes about how sexual chemistry can blossom into tenderness , which she reveals in Floodtide is love.
Although Kay makes her heroines accept love for its own sake as an unconditional emotion, the result is not humiliation but empowerment as the men reciprocate with sensitivity and depth. Here, Kay appreciates the fact that emotive words don't come easily to most men.

Therefore, in Timber Boss , and in Bitter Alliance after women have made their confessions of love, men contribute to it with cryptic but pregnant remarks such as there is no going back and don't say any more to seal their relationship. As strong-willed women submit to even stronger willed men, happiness follows. Temporary Marriage is a Kay Thorpe classic. Regan and Keir are such meaningful names where the name Regan, stands out with pride like its namesake and Keir, an outlandish name suits someone who does something outlandish, coveting a girl beyond his social periphery and then turning hurt pride into zeal and determination.
Regan and Keir's story does not finish with the first curtain close. They come together in a second act. But the ghost of the first one lies between them. To exorcise this ghost, they both act on impulses reaching impromptu decisions that voice deeply held sentiments, which they push out at the time from any detailed analysis.
The pretext of marriage gives them the form needed to communicate at a level other than the one using clinical words. This is sexual love where unalloyed emotions bring out the affirmatives which are intellectually negated. And so this form of love opens up a window to their Will.

And what comes by way of a rescue: a sudden crystallization of emotions. The pent up emotions wandering in the recesses and henceforth stamped out by reasonable means find a sudden release. In an outburst of emotions, the accompanying words flow in a torrent.
