    I have never tried a Cadbury crème egg. There's nothing about the looks of that egg that appeals to me.

    I used to love those Cadbury creme eggs - I'd get one every year - but now I find they're just too sweet for me. That's pretty much how it is with most candies now, especially stuff like candy corns and Peeps (but also most chocolate). I used to like lots of different candies, but now I rarely eat any. Maybe it's because I don't eat a lot of processed sugar, so now everything is too sweet for me. I have the same issues with salty foods since I don't use a lot of salt when I cook.

    Some years ago they started selling those foui wrapped chocolate oranges. the chocolate wad flavored with orange and it broke apart in sections ... just like an orange. I used to eat some kind of orange flavored chocolate when I was younger! Good stuff!

    But Jim Fixx weighed 240 pounds at one time, and the worst thing- he smoked two packs of cigarettes per day. I think you can get fit, but past sins catch up with you.

    Let us not leave out his crappy family history; he also had a history of an enlarged heart. He was a tragedy looking for a place to happen.

    Too late now - my youngest is 28! At least if a shoe was found at an accident site, there might be a chance to match the shoe to the person. For people who currently have young kids, maybe the ideal thing to do would be to put a label inside their pants.

    I had never thought of taking an ID when I went out walking. When I walked Harley, I would just grab the leash, some poop bags and be on my way. Until one day I was walking him, stepped off the curb and twisted my ankle.
    I didn't hurt it bad but enough that I had to sit on the curb for a bit before I was able to walk home.

    As I was sitting on the curb, I started thinking about all of the things that could happen when I was out walking. I always stuck my ID in my pocket after that.

    I also have a severe allergy to a nausea medication. It's not an average allergic reaction. My throat and tongue swell up and it could kill me. I'm supposed to get a bracelet but I never have.
    I always figured that if I had a bad accident or something, they wouldn't be giving me a nausea medication.

    After reading all of your stories and comments, I ordered my bracelet.

    I love this place! Don't know what I'd do without you guys! You keep me "company".
