Life is Just a Bowl of Cherries...frozen or fresh
Yes. I am from New England. Yes. I am bummed about the
Patriots losing. I still love the Patriots and mr #12.
It was an upset but there were plenty of factors that contributed
to their demise.
But its a GAME. Sometimes you win. Sometimes you lose.
Its no big deal.
Today is a new day. A day to hope for a better season next year.
I am just glad i did not bet a million dollahs on the game.
So to cheer you up....Lets talk about the benefit(also a cosmetics co)
of the lovely fruit....Cherries.
Fitsugar.com had a great article and since Fit sugar seems to be my new
favorite pasttime.....read on.
