Doing all the fertility stuff I was informed I have a high testosterone level for being female! Thank goodness I don't have facial hair and all that jazz, but it explains some of my behavior.. ... I am going to have hormone replacement therapy after all the saga the insurance doesn't cover it so hopefully I can claim it on my taxes.. As girly as I may seem only in makeup/men I have a lot of male ways!

Well, from a kid's point of view - you would know where to get big boobs, since you had a pair. Guessing they don't already know how one would acquire bigger boobs if not blessed from birth.

Actually, the book was published over 20 years ago. It makes a rather persuasive case. It would be very relevant to your job. At a young age, boys are behind in verbal skills and often don't respond well to sitting at a desk listening to a lecture.

Here is an interesting factoid concerning male ability in mathematics:

"Dr. Julian Stanley and Dr. Camilla Benbow, two American psychologists, worked with highly gifted students of both sexes. Not only did they find that the best girl never beat the best boy - they also discovered a startling sex ratio of mathematical brilliance: for every exceptional girl there were more than thirteen exceptional boys."

Larry Summers, the former president of Harvard, made a comment that there might be sex-base differences in aptitude in science and was forced to resign.

The book paints a picture of female exceptionalism in verbal skills. It even postulates that "women's intuition" is due to a larger corpus callosum, allowing the two brain hemispheres to better integrate emotional cues and information.

On the body weight I'm about 20 pounds over but I'm so tall (6'1") that is really not that bad. The exercises I do are one my PT taught me. Stretches and 2 strengthening ones. Some of them others we tried hurt SOOO bad he told me to stop trying them. And no I don't have an iPhone? If you tell me there is an app for this I might go get one though.
