Did you know Avacados have the highest calories of any fruit at 167 calories per hundred grams? 

Try to stay warm the next couple of days...a break in the cold is supposed to be on it's way!

By the way, the Switzerland trip for Sept. 4-13 is full; however, there is a waiting list of 15 people.  If there is enough interest, they will take another trip the last couple weeks of August.  So, if the timing didn't work for my trip or if you were too late to get in, but would still loove to go, call Holiday Vacations at 1-800-826-2266 and maybe we'll have another trip.  If you're a single female, we do have room for you on my trip....we have a single female looking for a roommate, so you would have an automatic "in"!
