“Do the one thing you think you cannot do. Fail at it. Try again. Do better the second time. The only people who never tumble are those who never mount the high wire. This is your moment. Own it.” –

Ghanaian delicacy

Roasted plantain is a Ghanaian delicacy. Now, as the name suggests, its made out of neatly roasted ripped plantain and served with roasted groundnut as well. This is one of the cheapest, healthiest and most handy foods one can think of on a busy day. It is as well sold under locally manufactured tents by the roadside; hence the label: “the lay man’s food”. This picture depicts a typical joint to get your share. But hey, what’s unique and funny about this particular joint? Someone please tell me. The inscription? Maybe my guess could be right. I just couldn’t hide the expression on my face when I saw this seller going the extra mile to advertise her food which is hardly done. More grease.
But on the other hand, I couldn’t also stop imagining how many of us will be willing to serve roasted plantain on our wedding days. Maybe I should take pioneering role.

Revamping your soul


Marriage is a union, and that’s a fact. You two become one flesh and live together as husband and wife.Remember you no longer on your own. You’re now in an institution being managed by two people and you belong to each other. You guys are now the closest of friends and so you make and agree on decisions together. You make decisions as to what to eat, how to spend money, the number of children you gonna have, where to live, when and how to make love and a whole lot. Until children begin to flow in, everything depends on you two. Family members might come in along the way, but believe you me, they are just passers by. They may share experiences, guide you in certain situations, or even help in making decisions but mind you, they’re all meant to check/influence you two and not them. As a result, be careful whom you seek advice from, the decisions you make, the kind of words you use for each other. Open up, share your thoughts and ideas, move together, eat together, take a stroll/walk together and even share your household chores.These will spice up your marriage and make it romantic as well.

This post is in response to the several
questions about sex during menstruation. You will find these notes helpful.
•It is also very common for women to have
sexual desires during that time of the month
due to shoot in levels of hormones.
• Some women report that sex causes
menstruation to end sooner than usual. This is probably due to muscle spasms from orgasm, allowing menstrual blood to flow out quickly.
• A woman can get pregnant from having sex during her menses. This is likely if ovulation closely follows the end of menstruation.
• There’s also a higher risk of passing on sexually-transmitted infections from both partners. Use a condom!
• Sex can ease the discomfort and cramps associated with the period. Orgasmic contractions of the uterus offer a soothing internal massage. Natural painkillers calld endorphins are released to reduce cramps, depressions etc.
• Talk to your partner about sex during that time of the month. The decision to engage in it is solely dependent on how comfortable it is with both partners.
