Ever wonder what the right way is to hold a wine glass? It is just not a matter of displaying proper etiquette, there is a reason for holding a wine glass a particular way.
There is a reason that wine is served in stemware verses a glass or cup. The reason is that the temperature that a wine is served can have an impact on its taste. Placing your hands on the bowl of the glass will cause the liquid to change temperature.

Ladies, you ever feel like, reaching out & touching that special baller? Now I use the word "baller" because, what sense would it make if I referenced him as anything other than that? This is BALLER ALERT, right? When I hear the word baller, many thoughts come to mind; doctor, athlete, entrepreneur, just to name a few. However, this particular baller, "my baller" is neither of those. He's a hard working, very dedicated, average joe, but in… Continue

When a new baller comes on the scene, many women lose contact with their friends. They often confine their friendships to other couples. Women assume if they love someone individually, they will have no need for other companions outside of the relationship.
Many women love too hard. They view outside friends, especially when the friend is single, as a threat to their own position in a relationship.
The sad part of these fears is that they… Continue

One of my clients told me about this site a month ago, and I must admit I have been reading this site with my door closed in my office. One thing I hate is that you put my clients business out there, especially the married ones, and don't even know it's true or not. From reading the posts on here, i'm sure that this groupie post on here. Her name is Estrella.
Her resume consists of Adewale, Terrell Owens, Gilbert Arenas, Dwade Wade, Steven Jackson, Darnell Dockett, Brian Westbrook,… Continue

Many people have heard the name "Martha's Vineyard" but most probably don't realize that the name refers to an island and not a vineyard. This triangular-shaped island is just under 90 square miles in size, and is located about 7 miles off the coast of Massachusetts and 3 miles off the coast of Cape Cod.
The only access to the island is by air or ferry. Ferries run regularly, with much more frequent service in the summer. The… Continue

Aside from the perks of the winter, I'm glad it is long gone. I've patiently waited for the smell of fresh cut grass( yea right, my allergies are kicking my ass), but you ladies can catch my drift. Spring time is finally here, which means, cookouts, pool parties, jet skiing, fishing, & wait did I mention COOK-OUTS!? Anyways, before I get too far off on a tangent, I figure I'd let you guys in on my biggest vice; SHADES.

Center the soup bowl on top of the dinner plate.
Place the forks directly to the left of the plate. The fork for the earliest course (usually salad) should be furthest from the plate, and the next fork in should be for the next course. The dessert fork should be placed above the dinner plate perpendicular to the other cutlery with the handle pointing towards the prongs of the other forks
Place the dinner knife directly to the right of… Continue

Hooray Baller!! This is my first blog on balleralert.com. I must say, for being a white guy who really doesn't follow the ballers too much this site is really cool. The concept of it is quite brilliant in fact. Finally, a community based around individuals who actually USE these type of internet tools like blogs, slideshows and web cams.
I can't wait to see this site blow up. I am pretty confident that it will within the next 6 month period. Anyway, that is just my two cents. I'm a… Continue

Get Happy Feet. Rainy season means tucking your flip-flops away and sporting those good ol’ trusty sneakers. But the long hours in sweaty sneaks can easily cause blisters and calluses. The best remedy? Get a pedicure at a trusty salon, minus the polish. Afterwards, give your feet a little treat with a mini-foot spa: Before bedtime, smother some petroleum jelly on your tootsies, then slip into socks. The warmth of the socks will allow your skin to absorb… Continue

He's treated you like s*** and you have decided to you have to let him go. It is hard but possible.
Here are some tips on how to let him go:
Don't email, IM , phone, or even say hi, it will open wounds that you are trying to close. Don't answer calls from them either. (block his IM name, his name in your phone should now appear "don't answer")
Tell him that it's over just to be sure so he doesn't still ponder on the idea and… Continue
