Welcome 2008

It’s The Principle of the Thing!

August 27, 2007

There should be no room in my diet for worrying about the price of food.  And right now there is and I have to change my ways.  No I’m not talking about not trying to save money, I’m always up for that – like buying my Kind Fruit & Nut Bars on Amazon to save […]
