    Not to mention the caffeine. I wouldn’t miss it if they took it off the market. At least 7-Up and Sprite don’t have caffeine.

    Soda itself causes so many problems. As part of taking control of my health care I kicked the habit. The diet stuff is bad too. I have one every once in awhile. Yes the last time I had one was because I only had a dollar and all the other drinks were more expensive.

    Feminism? Remember when Mom really cooked? Remember when the family sat down, said a prayer, and ate together? Seems like progress has a price? We must step back and reflect our choices. We get to choose what the word “family” means to us.

    Well, people are so phoney! What about those “Monster” drinks they are just as bad. People stop being phoney. Oh, now after people have made money putting those soda machines in the schools, were they thinking about the children, then or were they thinking about a “buck”. Phoney! Phoney! Phoney people
