I know, I know. Many people don't like beets. I on the other hand, love them, as long as they're pickled. They taste much different from those that are not. Anyway, the following article I found is a real eye opener, whether you like beets or not. The health benefits to eating them are enormous. Just take a look, and maybe, you might consider eating Beets. Or drinking their juice.

“Somewhere in the two seconds of silence between “When a man loves a woman” and “Dancing in the Street, I could hear or feel on the creaky old floorboards that someone was walking around the porch. Since I live alone and was expecting no one, I took the .38 in my right hand and rested it on my lap. So you don’t think I’m a paranoid citizen, I should mention that I was convalescing, not from the mumps, but from three bullet wounds, two 9mm and one .44 caliber Magnum, not that the size of the holes matters. As with real estate, what matters with bullet holes is location, locations, location. Obviously these holes were in the right locations because I was convalescing, not decomposing……… I should say at this point that I’m a New York City homicide detective, formerly working out of Manhattan North until I went down……… Meanwhile, the two perps who plugged me are still out there.”

"Sometime late in 1664, the musketeer D'Artagnan rode                                               

beside a heavily armoured carriage as it rumbled slowly southwards

from Paris, carrying his friend Nicolas Foucquet to internal exile and

life imprisonment in the Alpine fortress of Pignerol. There he would

be incarcerated in a cell next door to the Man in the Iron Mask.....

And that lake surrounded by miniature examples of other places, called Epcot? Oh, boy......fun awaits, not matter which you choose. But, other than they are on opposite sides of the USA, what is the difference between DisneyLand and DisneyWorld? Well, let's see......... Oh, did I just hear the kids screaming, yay, yay, yah?????? So, what’s the difference between Disneyland and Disney World?  Well, let's see.
