He woke and and said it looked like a good day. He turned on the water. The faucet broke. He called the plumber. He went to eat breakfast and his toast burned, his wife burned his bacon. His wife told him to bring home food. As he was leaving the door fell off. When he was driving, he got a flat tire. When he was changing it, he ripped his pants. He started the car and kept driving. The engine blew up. He started walking and the wind blew his hat away. He ran after it, but he fell into a manhole. He climbed out and bumped into a lamp post. A policeman yelled at him for denting the post. He was starting to think it wasn't such a good day. He hung his head and kept walking, but he didn't look where he was going at walked into a lady and spilled all her groceries on the sidewalk. They just happened to be eggs. Another policeman gave him a ticket for littering the sidewalk. He decided to go home. At least his day couldn't get worse. When he got home, his house was up to his waist in water. The plumber has spent all day finding new leaks. He said he'd come back the next day to fix them. His wife asked if he had brought home food, she wanted a hot meal. Of, course, he had forgotten, so they ate cold pickles for supper. As he was going upstairs to bed, he was so happy that he could rest and not another bad thing could happen. He got into bed. It broke.
Have you ever had a day like this?
If at the end of the day, you're bored out of your mind, you didn't go anywhere or do anything, but nothing bad has happened, be thankful for all the good days you've had.

C G O Cares – A Supporter in Breast Cancer
For years women have battled with breast cancer, trying to find a cure. Gracie Williams, Catherine Hanson, and Olivia Tan are having fundraisers, and selling cookies to raise money for breast cancer research. We will be donating all the money we make to breast cancer research, none will be going to us.
Why Breast Cancer?
The reason we chose breast cancer is because 2 of Gracie’s aunts are breast cancer survivors and her great aunt died from it and we realize how important and scary it is to have a relative with that type of disease and we want to help all the other families out there that are waiting for a cure. Some people want to leave it to everyone else to find the cure but we are acting now to prevent it!
COOKIES, COOKIES, COOKIES!
We need a way to earn money to donate and we have decided to sell cookies! If you want to help find a cure just fill out the form on the back and buy a couple. Each cookie is $0.75, the price may seem a little high but it’s for a good cause. So please help and buy some cookies for breast cancer battlers! J
- Olivia, Catherine, Gracie

"I am a daughter of a wealthy importer, I began my career in the fashion industry in the early 1980s, studying liberal arts at Boston University after graduating from the Dana Hall School in Wellesley, Massachusetts. I later attended Ecole Superieure de la Mode in Paris and graduated from the Fashion Institute of Technology. I worked in the public relations department for Perry Ellis and its then-designer, Marc Jacobs. I then moved to Mirabella as Assistant Stylist and Market Editor, until taking a position at Elle. I became Fashion Director of Elle in 2000. I left the Fashion Director position at ELLE in April 2008, becoming Editor-at-Large at the Magazine until the end of August. I became Fashion Director at Marie Claire on September 2, 2008."

The shape of a Mentos candy is disklike, with an ellipsical bulge in the middle. They measure 3/4" in diameter, and at it's largest point, 6/16" tall.
Net weight is reported as 1.3 OZ/37.5 g, but this was impossible to confirm at the time of this writing.
Coloring of the mint candies is a chalky white, that extends throughout the entire candy. The fruit variety contains three colors, purple (grape), yellow (lemon), and orange (orange).
The mint flavor variety unsurprisingly taste like mint, and could be considered to possess a breath freshening function as well as a cool, menthol-like aftertaste. Mixed fruit have none of these properties, but are instead quite sweet. The differences between the flavors contained in a mixed fruit package are small. Color seems to be the only real distinguishable quality.
When chewed, the candies disintegrate into a gum like consistency, and if appropriate, release their breath freshening characteristics.
Packaging:Mentos candies come in cylinder shaped 'rolls', with 14 included in each roll. The label consists of 'mentos' written in block letters, covering approximately 2/3 of the roll lengthwise. Next to this logo is the flavor identification, (i.e. 'mint' or 'mixed fruit') although flavor identification can be more readily obtained from the background coloring of the label. Mint has a misty bluish white photograph of many Mentos scattered about, while mixed fruit has a more colorful representation of the same shapes, including purple, orange, and yellow disks. It is important to note that the colors displayed on the package are actually much more vibrant and deep than that of the actual product. Do not be misled, all Mentos have a chalky, very light hue to them, no matter what the flavor.
Ingredients:Mint: sugar, glucose syrup, hydrogenated coconut oil, gelatin, dextrin, natural flavor, corn starch, gum arabic.
Mixed Fruit: sugar, glucose syrup, hydrogenated coconut oil, gelatin, dextrin, natural and artificial flavor, gum arabic, coloring.
