A surprising number of adults are still scared of the dark and check for monsters under their bed

According to a new poll, 17% sleep with a light on while 18% jump into bed with their kids if they’re too scared to sleep alone. A staggering 64% of British adults admit they are still scared of the dark, according to a new study.

Researchers discovered that nearly two thirds of the nation dislike putting the lights out at bedtime, while 36% regularly get the feeling someone or something is in the room with them.

As many as one in five (20%) of the 2,000 adults polled by sleep experts Bensons for Beds said they regularly check under the bed for lurking monsters and close cupboard and wardrobe doors before they get into bed.

A further 17% sleep with a light on most nights of the week.

The new poll comes days after a  John Lewis Christmas Advertisement which sees loveable Moz the Monster befriend little boy Joe after he sets up home under his bed.

But according to Bensons’ research, not everyone is expecting a friendly monster – as the average adult wakes up at least twice a month feeling scared that something creepy and untoward is hiding in the room.

Almost half (48%) said they have an overactive imagination, which leads to them feeling scared and frightened of the smallest sounds and noises.

In fact, 22% of the nation confessed they do not like to poke their foot out from underneath the duvet in case something grabs it, while a quarter of adults believe they have seen a mysterious shadow in their bedroom.

The survey showed 18% of parents have even hopped into bed with their children as they were too scared to sleep alone.

In fact, women are the most likely to suffer, with 53% of women saying they are scared to be in the house alone compared to 25% of men.

Henry Swift, Chief Customer Officer at Bensons for Beds said: “This research highlights that some of the fears and insecurities we have as children, stay with us well until adulthood.

“Whilst it’s sensible to double and triple check doors and windows are locked securely, there is probably little need to check the wardrobe or under the bed for monsters, but at some point we have all felt nervous during the night when we hear a floorboard creak or can’t make out a shadow clearly.

When it comes to worrying about things that go bump in the night, the most common time for adults to become alarmed is 2:30am.

Four in ten adults regularly peer out from behind the bedroom curtains to check no one is lurking outside – however there is safety in numbers as one in five adults even drag their other half to the toilet with them if they have to spend a penny during the night.

RHOA: S10 Ep2 Not Over It


Image result for porsha williams and shamea morton

Ladies and Gentlemen!  I give you Cynthia Bailey.!  All of her!   I’ve watched all the Bravo franchises and have never seen a housewives getting in the tub and shaving her legs in the tub.  Yes, Angela Stone from the Real Housewives of Auckland took pictures for the cover of her book in the tub.  This seemed like a commercial for a woman’s shaver or bubble bath.   Just an observation and yes she has it.

We join Ms Bailey on date in what looks like a giant chicken coop.  He date blindfolds her and reveals they are in his studio. Dinner is prepared.  Did I mention her date is  a photographer,who takes pictures of her. The cynical me says the photos are to boost his career.   At dinner they discuss age, he’s 29 she’s not end of story.

Across town at Porsha’s sister Lauren and her child is moving in, there is some baby daddy issues.

Sheree sees a Life Coach, the abuse that surfaced last season with Bob is a heavy cloud she can’t shake.  Despite the show airing, she still hasn’t had the discussion with her children. Her Coach recommends a dry run, where she inacts a conversation with friends. She has the dry run at Kandi’s House.

After Cynthia divorced, she thought she and Kenya would be burning up the streets as two single women.   We learn the beginnings of Kenya super fast relationship.  Sounds like hubby has a couple of coins.  Problem is he is a private person who married a public person and she is worried about their future.

Shamea, Porsha’s bestie is  getting married in Kenya.   From the moment Phaedra entered Porsha’s life her relationship with Shamea has been bumpy .    The Bentley driving Porsha, says she cant afford a 10K first class ticket to her besties wedding. and she has a medical condition that prevents her from flying coach.

Shamea has an shower.  Everyone is in hats.   I didn’t recognize Sheree ,wearing a dark blonde wig.  Porsha said she looked like Kim Zolciak (yall leave Porsha alone, only Porsha would think Sheree looks like white woman.)   Porsha also thinks she and Kandi are okay.  When she joins the table, Kandi gets up and leaves.

Kandi returns with friend Carmon on the other end of the table.  (we know Carmon has jokes)   Shamea and Porsha have known each other since they were children and she wanted to know why wasn’t she attending?  Porsha, well I sent you a not from my doctor.   Carmon reached into her purse and said she has a note for everything.   Porsha at one point said she basically has low blood pressure that wont allow her to set for long periods.   Carmon came back with yes she not used to having her legs down that long cause they are usually  up in the air . (Now come on Bravo, yall was being shady and we love it. I question if they were sitting at the same table cause Porsha would have turned over that table if she heard any of Carmon’s comments. )

The episode ended with Shamea and Porsha arguing.  Porsha’s upset, that Shemea brought this up in front of Kandi.    Clearly there are deep feelings from Shemea wanting her bestie at her side.  As the door was closing Porsha called Shemea a bitch and said she will love her from afar .

This Episode was a 5 out of 10

We had a lot of great TV last year, which helped mitigate what sometimes felt like a world gone mad (and about to burn). This year feels about the same, but luckily we still have great TV to watch (while it lasts anyway).

Here are the year’s best TV shows (so far).

Megyn Kelly: Epic Failure for NBC


Megyn Kelly's new show debuting in the 9am Today show slot to be dubbed Megyn Kelly Today

 

For nearly thirteen years she was a shining star at Fox News.  A well respected journalist, political commentator and attorney.   Kelly received worldwide attention after a series of attacks by Presidential Candidate Donald Trump after she asked him about his attacks on women during Republican Presidential Debate where she was the moderator.

With her contract ending at Fox News, Kelly signed with NBC.

By  appearances, Kelly was being developed to be NBC’s Barbara Walters, where she would host an evening news show, a daytime show and take part in major interviews and be involved with the networks major news event coverage.

“Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly” Premiered in June.  Sunday Night started strong, with 6 million viewers, against CBS’s mighty 60 Minutes and ABC’s America’s Funniest Home Videos.  It lost nearly half its audience the following week.  She show ended after 8 episodes.  It is unclear if the show will return in the spring.

NBC’s Today Show has been on the air for more than sixty years.  Today began as a two hours show in 2000 the show was expanded to four hours.

Sept 25,2017 ” Megyn Kelly Today” premiered The shows 3rd hour. Replacing Al Rokur and Tamron Hall.   Kelly has received poor notices and is noticeably struggling in this format.

Page Six says, Kelly’s hour of Today is down 32 percent.  Her rating are also affecting the fourth hour of  Today’s Kathie Lee and Hoda down 26 percent.

Lets create a war with Korea. Perhaps this will slow the Russian Investigation

Far fetched? 

Based on everything that has happened (so far) with the Trump administration is this the idea far fetched?

Yesterday,  North Korea Minister Ri Youg Ho accused Donald Trump of declaring war with his country after tweeting ” North Korea wont be around much longer”

“Since the United States declared war on our country, we will have every right to make all self-defensive counter measures, including the right to shoot down the United States strategic bombers at any time even when they are not yet inside the aerospace border of our country,” Ri said.
Earlier today, South Korea’s Yonhap news agency said North Korea appears to have boosted defenses on its east coast.
Meanwhile, as White House Press Secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders was playing defense saying the US had not declared war.  President Trump was tweeting up a storm about the NFL, criticizing Puerto Rico and John McCain.
As the Russian Investigation continues we learn the White House is resisting Mueller’s request for documents  including documents and emails relating to the dismissals of former national security adviser Michael Flynn and Comey, as well as Trump’s Oval Office meeting with senior Russian officials in which he said Comey’s firing eased pressure on the White House.
We’ve learned at least six of Trumps closest advisers occasionally used private email addresses to discuss White House matters.

Jared Kushner, Stephen Bannon, Reince Priebus, Gary D Cohn, Stephen Miller and daughter Ivanka Trump.

Officials are supposed to use government emails for their official duties so their conversations are available to the public and those conducting oversight. But it is not illegal for White House officials to use private email accounts as long as they forward work-related messages to their work accounts so they can be preserved.

NFL Football in Los Angeles? Whatevah!


Los Angeles is the second largest TV market in the nation.   Professional sports want a slice of that lucrative pie.  The LA Rams left town in 1996 after several attempts to get taxpayers to pay for a new stadium.    So they moved East where St Louis gave them everything they wanted and more.  ( Las Vegas, recently  gave the Raider Organization every thing they wanted to move.)   For 10 years Los Angeles was without an NFL team.

In 2016, the Rams returned to Los Angeles where they are temporarily playing in the 93,000 seat Memorial Coliseum until their new home opens in 2019 in Inglewood.  Over 83,000 attended last years opener at the Coliseum.  Despite tickets prices as low as $6.00 less than 58,000 Rams fans were in stands yesterday.

The news isn’t any better for Los Angeles newest team the Chargers.   Twelve miles southwest  of Memorial Coliseum is Stubhub Center in Carson the temporary home of the LA Chargers.  After over 50 years in San Diego Chargers moved to Los Angeles  The Chargers will share the Inglewood Stadium with the Rams .  The Chargers share the stadium with LA Galaxy Soccer Team.   Yesterday, in their home opener nearly half the fans supported the  Miami Dolphin in the 27,000 seat stadium.

2016 attendance for the Rams was in the top 10.  However, the team unable to sell out at $6.00 doesn’t bode well for the future, especially when you consider the USC Trojans nearly sold out the huge stadium the night before.

For many, in the LA area there are two teams , The Lakers and The Dodgers.

Its early, fans support winners, in the second week the Rams are 1-1 and the Charges are 0-2.
