Hi, everybody. I’m sure we all over-ate this past week/weekend. Case in point: My husband fell asleep Saturday night – on the couch – with a half-eaten bowl of jellybeans resting on his stomach. Those poor jellybeans didn’t even know what hit them. Well, I think you will eat up these ideas, too. Enjoy this edition. Send your feedback directly to me: It may be included in an upcoming issue of Advantages. For free information on products featured in Advantages, click here:
