    Re: The RT Thread Part V

    A major candy maker CEO, family business passed away this week. Sadness, 93, but one of the good people on earth. He even helped out competitors when they fell on hard times so they could stay in business.

    He invented the Lemon Heads, Atomic Fireballs, Baked Beans, and JawBusters. He invented the Lemon Head in honor of his sons birth.
    He said the inspiration was his son was born with a head shaped just like a lemon.

    Note: The Lemonhead DS is now 3rd generation CEO of the family business.

    They aren't really good for anything,
    but they still bring a smile to my face when I push them down a flight of stairs.

    Friends are Gods way of apologizing to us for our families.

    One of my Dads childhood friends wake will be tomorrow. I always remember him being around. Glad I saw him this year while he was still doing well. He was a Chicago Fireman.

    Chicago-land is home to so many candy companies. Mars candy is a big one as is Willy Wonka candies.

    Jack-In-The-Box (fast food burgers) is now offering Chocolate-Bacon Shakes.

    I'd like a sample.

    The Target that is closest to us just put a Starbucks in there to replace their food/snack area which didn't do much business. I wonder how it will do? That Target is not exactly in the Starbucks kinda area.

    The Grand Cannon has stopped the sale of water bottles. Hope nobody is thirsty during their summer vacations.

    Ours is a "proper" wedding. We have a 3.5 hour gap between the ceremony and the reception tomorrow. Our house is halfway between the Church and the reception, so we can go home for a bit

    Wow! Mine too! We had 3 hours. Ours home was the half way house though, as we joke. It was 103 degrees at 3pm. I had a long sleeved dress in a massive old church that was not air conditioned. Everyone loved my home that I cranked the a/c down to 60 before we left for the church in anticipation of many guests laying over until the reception.

    February is our hottest month, and it looks like tomorrow is going to be cold, and wet. The bride was worried it was going to 40 degrees Celsius! She doesn't have to worry about that...

    I love chocolate, and I love bacon...so it seems natural...but my brain is telling me that it will probably be vile.

    I'm starving! I wish DF would hurry up and get home from work. I want dinner.
