By ‘FriendsofJay’ I watched the first season of the HBO—Cinemax series The Knick, about a hospital in New York City around the turn of the century. Very interesting in many ways.

A timballo is an Italian molded dish, typically of pasta or rice, with a filling of meat or vegetables.

Colored denim is a fun and easy way to be fashion forward and slowly adding color to your wardrobe, leading up to the summer. Here are a few celebrity style and fashion bloggers take on the trend.
There are only two ways to be sure that a woman wants to have sex with you: 1) She says “yes, I want to have sex with you,” or some similarly worded statement, or 2) you initiate sexual contact with a woman and she enthusiastically responds to your advances with physical advances of her own. I wish that I didn’t have to define what “consent” to sexual contact means in this day and age, but the latest high-profile rape trial in Steubenville, Ohio makes it patently obvious that rape culture is still alive and well.
Why do we ALWAYS have to give the disclaimer that we’re not just a bunch of black-man haters??
I came across this post shared by a member of a private group I belong to on Facebook. She was seeking our thoughts on the issue and I had to chime in. Spare the Kids is a blog run by Dr. Stacy Patton, dedicated to provided black parents and families alternatives to corporal punishment. A white man wrote in to seek advice about his black wife’s family over the issue of spanking. Their differences have led to heated discussions as her family is are determined to do it no matter what he says.
The eternal question…
A real come up story..

I want EVERYONE girl and woman on BB&W to look and feel beautiful. We’ve been talking a lot about that lately. What makes BB&W so different for anywhere else on the web is that we truly care and uplift each other.

Coffee has a remarkable affinity with beef. Here, it is complemented by balsamic vinegar, garlic and crushed peppercorns. Cooking to medium, this succulent cut of beef will bring back memories of bar-b-queue’s on the beach, friendly gatherings at the end of a summer day. A dry port or burgundy wine, or a tall frosty stein of your favorite beer is called for here, while new memories are being created. Enjoy my friends!
Elin Nordegren, the ex-wife Tiger Woods and mother to his two children, has reportedly upgraded from a philandering man-whore who sleep with skanky hoes to a ostensibly family-centered billionaire. This pretty blond rose from the ashes of humiliation and heartbreak to be back on #TeamWinning.
It is no secret that black women have always been desired for marriage by men of all races for centuries. I am always looking for images whether photographs or oil canvas like these Casta paintings. These are gems of black women of various shades with white males. I only found a few of these fascinting art and history collections. So if you know of any more, please add the links. I have included credits when available as these portraits all came from the Internet. My focus is black woman interracial unions, not the names of the offspring they produced. By today’s standards the children of such unions would simply be biracial or multiracial, not assigned to some one drop, racist label.
Despite what you may have heard, Atlanta, GA, isn’t all beautiful Southern weather, tree-lined streets and roads named some variant of Peach Tree, and a sizzling night life–the imagery of your favorite Usher song.

Online dating may not be the only way to meet a mate, but it certainly has become an essential part of the matrix. And since men are visual, women looking to catch the attention of the fellas need to make sure their profiles are perfect–the absolute perfect reflection of you. The goal is to get the guy to hover over your picture and profile long enough to allow the opportunity for him to get to know you on the inside. You know you’ve doing something right when you get a message from a tall and handsome man who writes, “I can’t stop looking at your picture.”
The red carpet extravaganza was two weeks ago. However, the looks presented on it are still impacting our SS 2013 wardrobe. Are the fresh faced looks and brightly colored lips a hint of what is to come in the Spring? I think so. Jessica Chastain (yes black women can adapt this look as well as Anne Hathaway’s), Anne Hathaway, Naomie Harris, Kelly Rowland and Kerry Washington are pointing the way to some amazing beauty trends this season.
