Viagra For Roses
There's nothing like red roses to get the romance flowing. However, if you want that romance to last, you'll also need some Viagra.
Here's the catch: The Viagra is for the roses.
The British Medical Journal published a study that found the popular erectile-dysfunction drug also has a stimulating affect on flowers.
Researchers discovered that when 1 mg of Viagra was placed in two vases of cut roses, the flowers stood up straight - without wilting - for as long as a week past their natural life span.
Note: If your flowers last longer than four weeks, you may want to contact a florist.

A local paper reports Betty LeMaster found the 10-pound rock when she was cleaning up her property. She became curious about it while watching a TV program called "America Unearthed."

Nice find Betty.
