I hope President Jonathan, his advisers and all state Governors can now prioritise job creation across all Nigerian states in order to save the lives of the unemployed youths. The rise in crime and insecurity in Nigeria is because the Youths are not empowered to own their businesses or gain employment. Small businesses have no access to unsecured loans from banks etc.

She had had recently become a columnist for Mother & Baby magazine. Below is what she revealed:
“I lived a life of wanton wanderlust. With fun loving friends from Los Angeles to London, I was lost in a haze of youth and no responsibilities.
“Other than work there was nothing stopping me from having constant fun. But it was becoming boring, I wanted an anchor – I craved it. And when I had two wailing, smiling, joyful little blobs of waddling pink flesh they became my entire existence and saved me from one of pure apathy.”

Her musician Dad Bob said: “We are beyond pain,” said her father, confirming her death. “She was the wildest, funniest, cleverest, wittiest and the most bonkers of all of us.”
I recently read about the secret pornographer in your blog and thought I share my marriage concern with you (if you missed it, read HERE).
Unlike the pornographer the sex life between me and my wife was not that great. We have been married for just 7 years, when our sex life started to deteriorate so badly, the pornographer’s story makes our sex life appear non-existent.
Would you believe that at one time we were down to once or twice a week, to be honest we sometimes go through a week with no sex at all. When we first got married there was all the excitement of sex, we use to even have sex couple of times a day, it was fun it was exciting on the table top, in the kitchen, in the shower etc but those are now gradually return.
So it all started after our 3rd child, first there was too much pain associated with sex then there was excessive exhaustion after the normal days work and child care, in fact the interest just died. We are then just living together as siblings if I may put it that way.
