  1. This one is quiet clever. I really liked the part:
    “those who’ve tried our product
    days without fear
    reduced stress”

    Reminded me of a study I read a couple years ago about how radical religious people show a reduced brain capacity towards reacting to fear as a stressor.

  2. Love these words .. life is free, our thoughts are free, we can smile, give care and show compassion at this time of year and keep on going .. all for free – great thoughts – Hilary

  3. Love this one, Charles! Especially the reminder that faith and hope are FREE–a notion that knocks me over the head with realization this morning as I head out to shop–to face the retail jungle!
    Faith and Hope to you, as well,

  4. How much do these little “purple pills” insuring faith & hope cost??? Or are they colored red & green for the “holy days”?
    ……tip toeing out of the blogcasa now very carefully………
