Remember the stories you got from whatever sources about birds and bees? Well, one of the advantages of being old is that we know what sex is (or was). I can't believe that I was brainwashed into believing that stork myth--or Santa Claus--or the tooth fairy, etc. When I learned the truth about these fictional characters, my faith in my parents' veracity was forever slightly tarnished.

Guys, if you haven't done so already, you need to register for the ACOF weekend to be held 27 - 30 June 2013 at the Ft. Lauderdale Airport Hilton Hotel. It's easy and convenient not only to book your room at the Hilton but also to register for the event on our website (see below)
