Happy Halloween!

by Diane on October 31, 2010

I am grateful for…..

A new job that is teaching me new things.

Curves. I love working out there for the past 4 years. Just love the women I get to socialize with.

Seeing a woman the other day with the word, ENOUGH across the front of her shirt. Made me think, yes, everything is enough right now.

Seeing one leaf left at the very tip top of a bare tree.

Quality time with my daughter.

Making a new routine work.

Cute little trick-or-treators.

Carved pumpkins lit up in the house that fill the rooms with the aroma of pumpkin.

Being a dependable person.

Beautiful sunsets on cool fall evenings.

Treat”N’Trivia

by MaryEllen on October 31, 2010

1. My curiosity made me wonder why some of my good friends in candy land got their names or what their story was.
2. Butterfingers-No reason given for the name but I found it amusing that they dropped Butterfingers and Baby Ruth candy bars from airplanes over select cities.
3.The Sky Bar (which I don’t remember) was advertised by skywriting.
4, Baby Ruth was not in honor of Babe Ruth but the President’s daughter,Ruth Cleveland.
5. Snickers was named after a horse the Mars family owned.
6. Reese’s cups were invented by Harry Reese who worked for Hershey’s. He started his own company and then years later sold it back to Hershey’s.
7.PEZ was German for peppermint. PfeffEaminZ
8.O’Henry had nothing to do with baseball or the author but referred to a young man who hung around the factory and the girls would ask “Oh Henry Can you do this” and “Oh Henry can you do that?”
9.Payday was invented and it happened to be payday when they were trying to name it.
10. Three Musketeers began as three sections in one bar. One strawberry,one chocolate and one vanilla.
11. Smarties didn’t increase your IQ but it made your face involuntarily pucker from it’s sour taste.

Happy Munching and Crunching or as in my case reminiscing!
