When I was a young mother I wanted to attend excercise classes, but since I had two children, it was hard to get away.  My resourceful husband suggested that we’d  find an exercise program on television that I  could  do at home. As much as I hated this idea I had to admit that...

I awoke feeling refreshed this morning. Instead of the burden of digesting twenty pounds of spaghetti and Swedish meatballs, as would inevitably have happened if I did not impulsively throw it all down the toilet - with the advent of the cow's head on my door step last night, I had a normal bowel...
