Do You Know The US Flag History?

Image
Flags Unlimited is a business that since 1985 has manufacturer of all types of flags and banners, offering both wholesale and retail sales. Not only do they sell flags, but I learned some flag history about the US flag.
The current official U.S. flag is a 50 star flag, born of the need for a more practical design to accommodate new states entering into the union. On April 4th, 1818, Congress established the number of stripes at seven red and six white, and provided the addition of one star for each new state. The thirteen stripes represent the original 13 colonies. The 50 star flag has been in use since July 4th, 1960 when Hawaii officially joined the union. In the first years of the Revolutionary War, America fought under many flags. One of these flags, called the Grand Union, flew over George Washington's headquarters near Boston. It was the first American flag to be officially recognized by another country. On November 16th, 1776, the American warship, Andrew Doria, saluted a Du…

Love Yourself This Valentine's Day #Valentines2020

Image
When it comes to sexuality and aging, little doubt remains that desire and intimacy don't slow down with age. In fact, as people live longer, healthier lives, studies show that sexual pleasure becomes even more important due to its positive impact on psychological and physical wellbeing. Leading sex tech innovator OhMiBod had this in mind with Rev, a new vibrator in its award-winning Lovelife line designed for ease of use by adults of all ages and abilities. “Sexuality among older adults is one of the last taboos,” said Suki Dunham, founder of OhMiBod. “Until a few years ago, most studies on sexuality deliberately excluded adults over 59 years of age despite that being the fastest-growing segment of the population.” According to the National Poll on Healthy Aging by the University of Michigan, 40% of adults aged 65 to 80 are sexually active, and 54% say sex is important to their quality of life. Sixty-five percent of people in this age group describe themselves as still bein…
