HOMEMAKING/COOKING TIP
When frying food add 2 teaspoons of natural cocoa powder (non-dutched anti-oxidant form).  You WON’T taste it, but it blocks the absorption of fats and carbohydrates.

GIVE LAVISHLY! GIVE ABUNDANTLY!
The more you give, the more you get –
The more you laugh, the less you fret –
The more you do unselfishly,
The more you live abundantly…
The more of everything you share, 
The more you’ll always have to spare –
The more you love, the more you’ll find
That life is good and friends are kind…
For only what we give away
Enriches us from day to day.

Thank you. I'm so excited about that milestone coming up! I know what you mean about the Whispers. I'm giving it a couple more episodes to see where they take it. I was the same way with Resurrection but finally gave it up.
