  1. Moderation in all things, I guess.

    I probably wouldn't have noticed the evil smirk if you hadn't pointed it out. But now the face looks kind of diabolical.

  7. Rick,

    You do note the expression on this!

  8. For the love of salt. Nutritionists say many eat 4,000 mg of salt a day, when we should get by with 1,500. Great spice....in small quantities.

  9. Yup, it's true, but your words make it tasty. Evil smirk, indeed.
