Have a Coke and a Smile :)

For Your Info:

If you had purchased $1,000.00 of Delta Air Lines stock one year ago you would have $49.00 left.

With Enron, you would have had $16.50 left of the original $1,000.00.

With WorldCom, you would have had less than $5.00 left.

But, if you had purchased $1,000.00 worth of beer (or coke) one year ago, drank all of the beer (or coke), then turned in the cans for the aluminum recycling REFUND, you would have $214.00 cash.

Based on the above, the best current investment advice is to drink heavily and recycle. It's called the 401-Keg

A recent study found the average American walks about 900 miles a year. Another study found Americans drink, on the average, 22 gallons of alcohol (or coke) a year. That means, on average, Americans get about 41 miles to the gallon.

Song for this post:

Click #7 (Coca Cola Secret) on my Coke Playlist...Do you remember that little jingle. I do. I remember the great big Christmas tree with everyone standing around it singing and drinking my favorite beverage... COKE. For kicks, you can also click on other jingles, but the REAL song for this post is #7!!

Don't worry guys, my playlist will return in a day or 2, or the next time I post at least! "Playlist just didn't have the song I needed this time, but Google did! Yeah Google!!

Faves of today:

#5 Coke in a can, #4 2-Liter of Coke, #3 Coke at Holiday oil, #2 Coke from the freezer (30 minutes is usually about right) and the #1 item on my list...my favorite Coke of all...Coke from the Mayan Express at Jordan Commons. They have the machine that lets you select your flavor add-in to your coke. So spiffy! And, none of the other MegaPlex theaters have it. Thank you Larry Miller!! I love your Coke machines!!!

p.s. I cannot take full credit for this post (as funny as it is). The majority of it came from an email that Jason sent me. I only added parintheses and the words "or coke" to each of the little facts. BUT I did search for coke songs on Google, and I added the Coke playlist. I also added my 5 faves.

I am still laughing. Guess I better start saving my cans! I'm gonna be rich!

And once again, kudos for the songs fitting for this post.

This may have been your best post yet! Very valuable information. It makes me feel like I am doing the right things with my money. Who cares about the lousy stock market anyway.:0)

You are too funny! The stock market is scary right now, but I guess I can enjoy a coke (I prefer Dr. Pepper!). Cute post!!
