Good Morning Readers! I was looking thru a past issue of a Women’s Day magazine (Oct. 2011) Women’s Day said that just 30 minutes of exercise 5 days a week can cut your breast cancer risk by nearly 20%. And that regular exercise (2.5 hours a week, which you can break up into five 30-minute brisk walks) not only helps to keep your weight in check, it can also lower estrogen levels and boost your immune system, helping to prevent any abnormal cells from growing and spreading. And if you do get breast cancer, KEEP MOVING. Breast cancer survivors who did the equivalent of one to two hours of brisk walking a week had a 40% lower risk of dying from breast cancer,according to a study from Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle. SO KEEP WALKING PEOPLE and THINK PINK every month of the year. WALK ON !!!!!!!!!!http://shopworndesigns.etsy.com
TWISTED TREATS / ROTTEN SWEETS
1898:Candy Corn is produced by the Herman Goelitz Confectionery Company of Fairfield, California, now known as the Jelly Belly Candy Company. (from women’s day magazine 2011) October 30 is National Candy Corn Day. More than 35 million pounds-that’s 9 billion pieces-are made each year. Like politics, the tricolor treat has American’s sharply divided, love’em or hate’em? I know that I can always eat a handful or two in October.One kernel has a mere 3.57 calories. Candy Corn is fat-free. A cup of candy corn has about as many calories as a cup of raisins. ( from family circle magazine 2011.)
Some thing else for your candy dish this October, the Hershey Kisses Pumpkin Spice are wonderful. And wrapped very festive. Enjoy!
HALLOWEEN FREAKY FACTS
Orange and Black colors are used because orange represents the colorful fall harvest. Black represents the darkness of winter.
The Irish placed candles in turnips to keep away spirits. Over time pumpkins got used instead.
And some Halloween tidbits from Family Circle Magazine Oct. 2011. Chew on this: October 30 is National Candy Corn Day. More than 35 million pounds, that’s 9 billion pieces, are made each year.

“Halloween was confusing. All my life my parents said, ‘Never take candy from strangers.’ And then they dressed me up and said, ‘Go beg for it.’ I didn’t know what to do. I’d knock on people’s doors and go, Trick or Treat, No thank you.”
