Menus March 3 ~ March 9
 
Guess I will have to readjust my dates. Starting out the thread Friday am seems to work better for me right now.

One of Murphy's Laws:
The Coffee Law - As soon as you sit down to a cup of hot coffee, your spouse will ask you to do something which will last until the coffee is cold.


Have a great week folks.

MaryMary 03-02-2013 06:12 PM

I'll be back tomorrow, thanks for getting it started.

Loretta, that law of Murphy's must be why the microwave was invented! :)
I hope you are enjoying yourself!
See you all tomorrow. :love:

I wonder how many "new" diets come out every month in the western world, just look at all the women's magazines alone, they come out every month with another "easy to follow" diet. Dang, I remember back in the 1950's, when Dinah Shore had a morning tv show, she had people on with "guaranteed" weight loss diets, lol.............the beat goes on, friends.
