      We've all heard the "red wine is good for you" now we can add chocolate to the list. Eventully a fully loaded baked potato will cure cancer - We can dream!

      I've actually lost 25 lbs but started a new job & there is this endless bowl of "fun-size" candy bars in the main traffic area. There is nothing fun-sized about it. I call them fat pills. But at least my stroke risk is cut down. . .
