SOME ODD THOUGHTS:

How to prepare Tofu: Throw it away and grill some meat!

I just did a week’s worth of cardio after walking into a spider web.

A recent study has found women who carry a little extra weight live longer than people who mention it!

Kid’s today don’t know how easy their life is - when I was young, you had to walk nine feet through shag carpet to change the TV channel.

Remember when we were kids and every time it was below zero out they closed the school? Me neither.

This morning I finished my 14 day supply of diet food in three hours and 20 mins.

Have a good week – it’s almost spring MB
