If It Sounds Too Good To Be True ...

why not go for it? So, do you want to lose 10 to 15 pounds instantly and with no surgery and no strenuous dieting? It's supposedly easier than you think! Just order a pair of these babies, magnetic slimming panties, and you'll be set. How can you argue with hundreds of healing magnets that boost your metabolism, improve your circulation, and relieve any body aches and pains you might be feeling? How does this take off 10 to 15 pounds instantly? You apparently have to purchase two pairs and take advantage of the free shipping and handling, which makes the cost $25.98. The weight of a Lincoln, Memorial Reverse penny dated mid-1982 to the present is 2.5 grams, which means that 2,598 or them weigh (unseen conversion to English units here) just over 14 pounds. You lose a bit more weight if some of the pennies are Lincoln, Memorial Reverse 1959 to mid-1982, because these weigh a bit more, 3.11 grams each.

I Am So Boycotting this Brand

On the Sunday before Mother's Day no less this ad appeared in one of the paper's coupon inserts. When shown this, older son was brave enough to observe, "That's wrong. You can live with a dirty bathroom. Cooking is the job that really matters." Hearing this, younger son contributed that that might not be true because as long as they had a grill, men didn't necessarily need a woman to cook for them. I wish I could say that they were taking me out to dinner for Mother's Day to atone for their callousness, but I'll be cooking that night, making dinner for my mother. And while my bathroom actually does need cleaning, don't look for Mr. Clean to be helping me once I get around to it.
