I'm a staunch defender of the originals! I loved the old ad line -- " They melt in your mouth, not in your hands". I think that's one of the best ad lines ever.

I know companies have to always come up with new stuff but I'm relieved that they haven't given up the originals. I'm sure someday they will. But until then -- that crackly outside with the chocolate inside and all the pretty colors -- so uplifting! :D

Ah, but they figured out a way to make the caramel soft inside the normal shell. They even built a special plant in Kansas and hired a bunch of people just for this new product.

“You never know what worse luck your bad luck has saved you from.” — Cormac McCarthy, Nonconformist Hall of Fame


or that line from a song "If it weren't for bad luck, I'd have no luck at all."
Born under a bad sign, recorded by Albert King.

It should be "wasn't" instead of "weren't," but I like "weren't" better.


Okay, now someone post a happier quote.

Hey, something that isn't made in China. What a concept!

Paul Tollet on Rebounding

Postby Lynx » Mon Apr 17, 2017 11:32 am

[After losing $1 million on the first Coachella] Paul Tollett sold his house, where he lived with his wife (they divorced in 2001) and daughter. Then he had to sell his car.

“It was really tough.” Failure didn’t crush him, however. “I tend to dissect failures meticulously, but I’m never embarrassed by them or let them bog me down.

"Just take a shower and move on—some of the failures have needed two showers, though.”

If you think you're too small to make a difference, you've never been in bed with a mosquito.

roses and thorns

Instead of complaining that the rose bush is full of thorns, be happy the thorn bush has roses. ~Proverb
