If you get melted chocolate all over your hands, you're eating it too slowly.

Chocolate covered raisins, cherries, orange slices and strawberries all count as fruit, so eat as many as you want.

The problem: How to get two pounds of chocolate home from the store in a hot car.
The solution: Eat it in the parking lot.

Diet tip: Eat a chocolate bar before each meal. It'll take the edge off your appetite and you'll eat less.

A nice box of chocolates can provide your total daily intake of calories in one place. Isn't that handy?

If you can't eat all your chocolate, it will keep in the freezer. But if you can't eat all your chocolate, what's wrong with you?

If calories are an issue, store your chocolate on top of the fridge. Calories are afraid of heights, and they will jump out of the chocolate to protect themselves.

Money talks. Chocolate sings.

Chocolate has many preservatives. Preservatives make you look younger.

Why is there no such organization as Chocoholics Anonymous? Because no one wants to quit.

Put "eat chocolate" at the top of your list of things to do today. That way, at least you'll get one thing done.

Chocolate is a health food. Chocolate is derived from cacao beans. Bean = vegetable. Sugar is derived either from sugar beets or cane, both vegetables. And, of course, the milk/cream is dairy.

So eat more chocolate to meet the dietary requirements for daily vegetable and dairy intake.

Saint of the week:

A Saint is often an ordinary person who has lived an extraordinary life of virtue and faith. As Catholics we should use these exemplars to inspire us in our daily lives.

St. Hesychius of Jerusalem

Unfortunately, not much is known of this early Christian Saint from the Russian Orthodox tradition. Many of his writings and much about his life has been lost to history. He was an exegete and involved in his church as a presbyter. His work was extremely important since he defended the doctrines of the Church from early heresies including the theories of Nestorianism and Arianism. Nestorianism postulated that there were two completely separate natures combined in Jesus, one divine and the other human. Arianism postulated that Jesus was not divine at all. Hesychius' work gives us great insight into the history of the early Church. He wrote homilies concerning the Blessed Virgin Mary, and many Bible commentaries which focused on the mysteries contained in the Old Testament and how they are related to the New Testament. This included writings on the Psalms. Some of his other works describe the life and martyrdom of early Saints. He had a great love of the Holy Eucharist and promoted the need to keep pure of mind and body.

This week pray a Rosary in his honor, his feast day is March 28th.

I've been blogging for over 3 years now and this will be my first giveaway to all bloggers all over the world. Since Holy week is getting closer I thought of giving this to ONE lucky individual or blogger as a gift. You will receive two pieces of knotted Rosary. One piece with combination of white and pink color, the other one with silver, white and blue color. What you see in the above photo, thats what you get.

This Giveaway is a POINT system and will begin on April 1st, 2010 ends on April 30th, 2010 at midnight EST. Winners will be announced May 3rd, 2010 and will be chosen through Random.org.

  • Cash via paypal

A Saint is often an ordinary person who has lived an extraordinary life of virtue and faith. As Catholics we should use these exemplars to inspire us in our daily lives.

St. Serapion the Scholastic

Little is known of the early life of St. Serapion. He lived in the fourth century. He was a Monk who spent much time in the Egyptian desert as a disciple of St. Anthony. He focused on prayer and performing penance. His intellectual powers were great and he was selected to direct the catechetical school which was located in Alexandria, Egypt. He would resign this post to return to his more humble life. He was later consecrated the Bishop of Thmuis, an important city in lower Egypt located on a canal of the NileRiver delta. He was an important defender of Church Doctrine and attacked the heresy of Arianism, which taught that Jesus was not consubstantial with the Father. He was banished by the Emperor Constantius, an avid believer in Arianism. He also opposed the Macedonianism Heresy which denied the divinity of the Holy Spirit and thus the Holy Trinity. He was a brilliant scholar and theologian, wrote a sacramentary called the Euchologion, several important letters and a lengthy discourse on the titles of the Psalms. Some of his writings may be found in the Sayings of the Desert Fathers (Apothegmata)

This week pray a Rosary in his honor, his feast day is March 21st

Warren Buffett
Omaha, Neb.

Net Worth: $47 billion

Rank: 3

The world's third-richest man still resides in the 6,000-square-foot, five-bedroom gray stucco home he bought in 1958 for $31,500. The home has everything the 79-year-old needs, including his very own handball court that he uses to keep fit. An intruder armed with a fake gun tried to break into the modest, ungated property in 2007 but was ultimately thwarted by security.

Bill Gates
Medina, Wash.

Net Worth: $53 billion

Rank: 2

Gates' 66,000-square-foot compound is built into a hillside on the edge of Lake Washington, near Seattle. Its enviable amenities include: a 60-foot swimming pool with an underwater music system, a 2,500-square-foot gym and a 1,000-square-foot dining room, which seats 24. For a personal touch, out-of-shape visitors can skip the 84-step hike to the ground floor and opt for an elevator ride instead.

Lakshmi Mittal
London, England

Net Worth: $28.7 billion

Rank: 5

In 2004 Mittal paid $128 million for his 12-bedroom townhouse in London's luxe Kensington district. Mittal's mansion, tucked between Kensington Palace and the Sultan of Brunei's spread, has an indoor pool, Turkish baths and garage space for 20 cars. The super-home is also embellished with marble taken from the same quarry that supplied the Taj Mahal.

Larry Ellison
Woodside, Calif.

Net Worth: $28 billion

Rank: 6

Over the last few years the Oracle co-founder has dropped $200 million by some estimates on near a dozen properties in Malibu to create a custom compound. His 23-acre estate in Woodside, pictured here, is inspired by the Japanese city of Kyoto and is reminiscent of a 16th-century imperial Japanese palace. It reportedly cost upward of $200 million to build.

Michael Dell
Austin, Texas

Net Worth: $13.5 billion

Rank: 37

Built in 1997, Dell's 33,000-square-foot hilltop manse sits on a 20-acre spread close to where he founded his eponymous computer company. The eight-bedroom house equipped with a conference room and both indoor and outdoor pools is known locally as "the castle" thanks to its high walls and tight security.

James Packer
Sydney, Australia

Net Worth: $3.5 billion

Rank: 258

The young media heir was raised at the Packer family compound in the tony Bellevue Hill suburb of Sydney. The centerpiece of the five-property spread, which stretches nearly three acres, is Cairnton, the main house, bought by Packer's grandfather in 1935.

Steve Jobs
Woodside, Calif.

Net Worth: $5.5 billion

Rank: 136

The tech superstar owns Jackling House, a 30-room historic-though-dilapidated Spanish Colonial home set on six acres. Jobs has tried to demolish the 17,000 square-foot mansion for many years in order to build smaller, newer digs, but Woodside residents have fought hard to keep the original structure intact. No matter. Word is Jobs and his family haven't lived in the house for years.

Lev Leviev
London, England

Net Worth: $1.5 billion

Rank: 655

In 2008 the world's largest diamond cutter decamped from Israel to the posh North London suburb of Hampstead. Leviev's $65 million home, called the Palladio, is an extravagant 17,000-square-foot, seven-bedroom estate replete with an in-house nightclub and a gold-plated indoor pool.

Ralph Lauren
Montauk, N.Y.

Net Worth: $4.6 billion

Rank: 173

America's original fashion mogul bought this stone and wood beach house situated on 5.5 acres in 1981. The rustic, cozy home, which boasts a clay tennis court, once belonged to John Lennon and Yoko Ono.

George Lucas
Marin County, Calif.

Net Worth: $3 billion

Rank: 316

The acclaimed Star Wars filmmaker lives and works on his famed Skywalker Ranch. The 5,156-acre spread, which has its own fire brigade, houses Skywalker Sound, Lucas' post-production company (Cast Away, Million Dollar Baby), as well as five acres of olive trees and a herd of longhorn cattle. Lucas displays his Hollywood memorabilia--the Holy Grail from Indiana Jones, Charlie Chaplin's cane--inside the 50,000-square-foot main house.

Steven Spielberg
East Hampton, N.Y.

Net Worth: $3 billion

Rank: 316

Called Quelle Farm, Spielberg's 12-acre summer retreat sits on Georgica Pond, the A-lister playground of Ron Perelman and Calvin Klein. The Hollywood kingpin and his wife play host to a retinue of top stars and their families each summer, including the Clintons and Gwyneth Paltrow.

Donald Trump
New York, N.Y.

Net Worth: $2 billion

Rank: 488

The blustery real-estate-magnate-turned-reality-TV-star may have the Billionaires Club's shortest commute: he lives in the 32,000-square-foot triplex penthouse of his Trump Tower office building. The monument to marble and gold was renovated after Trump's third wife, Melania, gave birth to his fifth son, Barron. The tyke's room has a d├ęcor inspired by Louis XIV.

Oprah Winfrey
Montecito, Calif.

Net Worth: $2.4 billion

Rank: 400

The self-made media mogul paid $50 million in 2001 for the 23,000-square-foot Georgian-style home she calls the "Promised Land." Although renovations were underway when she purchased the estate, Oprah simply altered the plans to ensure they matched her style. With the chaos of construction behind her, she now enjoys the home's mountain and ocean views in peace.

Mukesh Ambani
Mumbai, India

Net Worth: $29 billion

Rank: 4

Mukesh Ambani isn't just building a home in Mumbai: he's constructing a family skyscraper. This 27-story lavish tower known as Antilla has been in the works for years and is being built with an attention to detail. Inside, no two floor plans are alike and each space uses different materials, such as one bathroom's Gingko-leaf sinks whose stems guide the running water into the leaf basins.

Out of curiosity, I did some research on Australian money. I found it very interesting. I wanted to be familiar with their paper money. Also, I wanted to do a comparison of it to other monies. I also reviewed how much the exchange rate is to the US dollar. So that I will know how much I will spend. I know you're wondering why did I pick the Australian dollar compared to other monies. It's simple, because someday I want to visit Sidney, Australia. I want to see with my two eyes the Sydney Opera House. I know its a beautiful place. There's a lot of entertainment going on there. I will be very happy when I get there, I have been waiting a very long time to visit. That's why I keep reading about the Australian dollar news so I know what's going on.

If you're using the Australian dollar or planning to visit Australia, all you have to do is be resourceful. Study and read all the facts and news on the internet so you're up to date. The Business Spectator site is one of my sources about the lastest news of the Australian dollar. I can find all the information I need at this site.

Thanks LEA for this wonderful award. I really appreciate it. Anyway, I researched the lyrics of "BEAUTIFUL", sang by Cristina Aguilera. Just want to share this to all my readers. Here it is, dedicated for you.

Everyday is so wonderful.
Then suddenly its hard to breath
Now and then I get insecure
From all the pain Im so ashamed

I am beautiful
No matter what they say
Words can't bring me down
I am beautiful
In every single way
Yes, words can't bring me down
Oh no, so don't you bring me down today

To all your friends you're so delirious
So consumed
In all your doom
Trying hard to fill the emptiness
The pieces gone
Let the puzzle undone
Ain't that the way it is

No matter what we do
No matter what we say
We're the song inside the tune
Full of beautiful mistakes

And everywhere we go
The sun will always shine
And tomorrow we might awake
On the other side

We are all aware that the rate of foreclosed houses has rapidly increased. The entire nation is affected from this massive foreclosure rate. After numerous government Bail outs, we thought things would get better for all homeowners. Unfortunately, it hasn't happened yet, and it is still going on. Seriously, Bail out money went so fast. We were wondering where it went, nobody knows; but one thing is for sure, Americans are still struggling to meet their house payments and the never ending taxes. Thats the main reason why homeowners end up selling their property quickly. It's very frustrating and tough.

However, on the positive side, buying a house at this time is the best thing you can do. The prices are very low and affordable. I think this will be a dream come true for some. You can choose a small or big house and maybe completely furnished. This is the right time so better start looking around to your neighborhood, perhaps you can find houses with a great deal.

Here's the deal, If you are a first time buyer, you can receive an $8,000 dollar tax credit. It's not bad at all. If you're a homeowner who's have lived in a current home consecutively for 5 of the past 8 years, you can get $6,500 Tax Credit. It's a good deal, isn't it?. There are no future extensions so all qualified homebuyers are urged to act and have a written, binding contract by April 30, 2010. This opportunity will be close by June 30, 2010, for more details watch this video.
