LONDON -- For all those men hoping for a better sex life, dream on. That is exactly the advice given in a new survey in Men's Health Magazine.
The magazine says research shows sexual fantasy can improve the quality of a man's sex life and those who say they enjoy great sexual satisfaction fantasize more often than less satisfied men. The survey claims men fantasize over 2,500 times a year.
HAMELN, Germany -- A German man says his relatives pester him about his money, so he found a unique solution to his problem.
He tossed $60,000 into a river. But his problem wouldn't go away that easily. Two teen-agers found the metal box containing the money and their teacher turned it over to authorities. Police say the man's relatives didn't want the money, but wanted to make sure he used it wisely. A family court has appointed someone to look after the man's savings.
LONDON -- The royal family is not amused by an Italian magazine's photos of Prince Charles putting on his underwear.
An aide to the royal family calls the photos "intrusive" and says they were taken with a telephoto lens while Charles was on vacation in France. They show back and side views of the future king of England putting on white boxer shorts.
PARIS -- Man cannot live by bread alone, but the French Millers Association wishes people would eat more of it.
The association complains that breadmaking is endangered by the public's loss of appetite for traditional breads like the baguette. The group says French people eat less than half the amount of bread they ate at the turn of the century. They blame new breakfast foods and claims that bread is fattening.
MANCHESTER, England -- In Britain, a rare example of big government dropping its bureaucratic face to reveal a human side.
Three youngsters, visiting a relative in Italy recently, took pity on some ducklings they saw in a market stall. They bought the birds, then attempted to smuggle them home to Manchester.
The ducklings were discovered on board the jet mid-flight and customs was notified. But the children's tears apparently melted government regulations. Britain's Ministry of Agriculture ruled the ducklings did not have to go into quarantine, as long as the youngsters made sure the birds did not wander once they were taken home.
