Stuck for words?

I thought I would start something fun and I’m asking you to help. How about sending someone a card or note this month? Someone you wouldn’t have sent to otherwise, could be someone who needs cheering up, someone who is having a rough time or just someone you want to surprise. Stuck for words? Then take a look at this video – it’s brilliant!

Chocolate Covered Cashew Truffle anyone?

Apparently it’s Chocolate Covered Cashew Truffle Day – not sure if that’s all one item or not, hard to tell but hey it’s got chocolate in it so I’m happy.

Being a Phoenix Trader I love chocolate, especially cake, and we have a lot of chocolate products, take a look for yourself.

Here’s a fascinating article on what is and what isn’t a Truffle:

Staying within the lines – or not?

“Coloring is an activity that we tend to associate with children. As we grow older, we put aside our crayons and colored pencils in favor of more respectable writing utensils like pens and highlighters.
