You Rock!

For all you that come each day
You rock!

Quote by~Deepak Chopra
“God does not judge, only our mind does.

Facts
Goat's milk is used more widely throughout the world than cow's milk.
Wine will spoil if exposed to light; hence tinted bottles.
Most of the world's people must walk at least 3 hours to fetch water!
Half of all identity thieves are either relatives, friends, or neighbors of their victims.
At horse race tracks, the favorite wins fewer than 30% of the time!

Tip
A Potatoes can also help you with your skin problems. Acne, blackheads and whiteheads can be treated using potatoes in two methods. The first method is to simply cut a potato in half and rubbing the inside part of it on the affected area. Leave the juice on for half a minute and rinse. The other method is to make a face mask. To make the face mask, blend the potatoes in the blender and apply the paste on your face. Leave it on for 30 minutes and rinse off.
