Moments of Remembrance

In Remembrance:

Sometimes someone or something leaves us with fond memories that we just don't seem to forget. Today August 17th was my remembrance day of someone who taught me many valuable life lessons.MOMENTS of REMEMBRANCE are very dear and special.

Today is August 17th a day that will forever stay in my heart because August 17th was the last time I spent with a friend who taught me many valuable life lessons. One lesson he taught me was to take time to have fun.  So today on my anniversary date I remembered my "special friend" and had a carefree and fun day at the beach. I even ate a bag of "Smartfood Popcorn" which my special friend and I enjoyed eating on our many adventurous.

Thank You Jeff for teaching me a whole book of valuable life lessons! May you be happy wherever you are!
                              Smartfood Popcorn brings me moments of remembrance.


Inventing Moments!

Inventing Moments? Yes they happen all the time, around the world by multitudes of people.Let's be thankful for all the great inventions like airplanes, automobiles, electricity, instruments, telephones….the list goes on.

                                         The inventor of chocolate chip cookies!

American's have Ruth Wakefield of Massachusetts to thank for inventing the first chocolate chip cookie. It was Ms. Wakefield who approached NESTLE COMPANY and made a deal with NESTLE to print her recipe on the cover of NESTLE Semi-Sweet Chocolate Bars. In the current year 2015, chocolate chips cookies are still the number one favorite cookie in the United States.

Let's be thankful to all the geniuses who used many moments of their time to invent things for us to enjoy.

Indulging Moments

Do you ever get moments when you just want to indulge in something tasty like an ice cream cone or french fries?  How about Nestle Toll House Cookie Bars?

Today after bicycling, hiking, and swimming in the countryside all day I was dreaming of indulging in some kind of dessert. Just before getting ready to catch a bus to go back home it started to rain. I found a cozy cafe that served coffee and desserts. Sitting on the dessert tray were three delicious looking "Nestle Toll House Cookie Bars." How could I resist? I bought one and headed for the bus stop.

As I waited in the rain for the bus I took a few bites of that decadent "Nestle Toll House Cookie Bar" and finished the rest when I returned home. What a treat!

How wonderful it is to end the day with indulging moments like eating dessert. Reward yourself with indulging moments because "life is short." 

                            Nestle Toll House Cookie Bars are the perfect indulgence.
