From a Press Release:

5 Factors Influenced Amal Alamuddin’s Decision to Take George Clooney’s Last Name

Name Change Expert and CEO of MissNowMrs.com, Danielle Tate, Provides the Reasoning Behind the Latest Celebrity Name Change

Washington D.C., October, 2014- George Clooney married Amal Alamuddin married nearly three weeks ago and Amal announced that she is changing her name to Amal Clooney.  While Amal opted to take Clooney as her last name, her age (36) and professional identity as an international lawyer are factors that would make one think that she would have kept her maiden name in some way (perhaps as a middle name).

While Amal is a high profile woman in the public eye, all newlywed women as well as more and more same sex partners face the concept of name change after marriage.  What influences their decisions about their names is very interesting.  Danielle Tate, a name change expert and the CEO of MissNowMrs.com, the leading online name change service for bride, provides the five key factors that influence name change decisions after marriage


     1.         The Age of the Bride. Statistically, the older a woman is when she marries, the more likely she is to keep her maiden name in some way.  Property accrued, businesses created and more life spent as Miss XYZ tend to make older women hyphenate last names, take two last names, or take their maiden name as a middle name.


     2.         The Bride’s Profession.  Women with careers that depend on name recognition, such as lawyers, doctors and real estate agents are also more likely to keep the name that makes them money.  Again, they may take two last names, hyphenate, or take their maiden names as middle names.


     3.         The Educational Level of the Bride. The more degrees held by a woman before she weds, the more likely she is to keep her maiden name as part of her name. Typically this trend is attributed to the time/money spent earning the degrees, the pride in her degrees or simply the dread of trying to change her name on all of them.


     4.         Presence of Male Siblings. Having one or more brothers in her family is a factor that typically skews a woman towards taking her spouse’s last name.  As she has male family members to carry on her family name, she is less likely to feel the need to keep her maiden name after marriage.


     5.         A Family Plan. Women who intend to have children after marriage are more likely to take their spouse’s name in some way.  Sharing the same name with their offspring will alleviate school pickup and international travel headaches.
Outside of all of these factors, are the romantics who truly wish to share a name with their spouse and see it as the final step in becoming a married couple.  For them, the factors above may mean absolutely nothing.  Perhaps Mrs. Amal Clooney is one of the romantics.

Bee Sili SUPER Silicone BBQ Grill Oven Gloves & Basting Brush Review


Bee SAFE, THRIFTY & & ECO FRIENDLY when you use SUPER Silicone FDA approved Bbq Grill & Oven Gloves & FREE Silicone Basting Brush * Let your imagination run wild * Have safe fun with family & friends * Remove baked foods from oven * Turn food over & remove from grill * Prepare pulled pork * Handle hot corn-on-the-cob & boiled eggs * Roast marshmallow & hot dog over the campfire * Tend the fireplace * Grab cold drinks & food from the ice chest or freezer * Open lids with ease * Toss in the dishwasher for bacteria free cleaning *     One size fits small, medium & large hands but not extra large hands (6  inches wide) * Heat resistant up to 425 degrees F






Cassandra's Review- The product came with a free basting brush, that was great and easy to clean.  The gloves are a bit hard for me to close my hands tightly and they as you can see did not reach my fingertips which can be a little unsafe when handling hot items or trying to cut foods and also makes it a bit hard to open jars.  However they do work and men tend to have longer fingers.  They do make a great gift and will keep your hands protected when it really matters.  I also did not like the feel of the silicone directly on my skin.  My only suggestion would be to buy them if you have bigger hands and longer fingers so that your not having to worry about the size.

Title: Curse of the Granville Fortune (Granville Fortune #1)
Publication Date:  October 21, 2014
Publisher:  Tantrum Books
Author: Kelly Hashway

Find the fortune, break the curse!

The hunt is on for an ancient treasure tied to nine-year-old J.B.’s family history. He’s been having visions that make him sweaty, lightheaded, and certain he’s turning into some kind of freak—or worse, going insane. But things are worse than he imagined. The visions stem from a family curse. An ancient ancestor was accused of stealing the massive Granville fortune, and now J.B.’s entirely family will suffer.

To break the curse, J.B. must find and return the Granville’s stolen property. But he’s not the only one searching for the treasure. As he sets out on his journey through a dark and foreboding forest, he’ll battle his worst fears and fight terrifying creatures along the way. And when he meets two others who share the missing pieces of his visions and suffer from the same curse, the three soon realize they need to work together to break the curse before it’s too late.
