Given to Dave from Mary.
A nuke, though, is a strong deterrent
The only way a chocolate sampler is any good is if there's a legend that comes with the package.  I like the coconut, peanut butter, and nut combinations, giving a slight nod for dark chocolate coatings.  But, the ones with the neon-colored fruit fillings...oh man!  I'd take toenail clipping fillings rather than those.  Cherry cordials are kind of in that in-between stage.  There's a real piece of fruit in there, but the syrup can get all over if you are going for just a half-bite.  I think the reason that people go for the half-bites is because they don't want to get one of those nasty fruit filled ones.  Let's hope Dave's yum-yum likes them all.

Feb. 16 is "Do a Grouch a Favor" Day
-Profession: Internet Marketer

-Favorite mammal: cat

-You went from engineer to online greeting card seller.  How does that happen?:  I started out in software training, then web design.  I learned how to market products well, and from there, got into the internet marketing business.

-Is there a holiday that could use a card?:  Yes, National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day [May 15]

-Sweetest Day is a fabricated holiday, created by a greeting card company, which is celebrated on the third Saturday in October in the Great Lakes region.  Since you work with online cards, tell me a holiday your company will create:  The Universal Fasting Day.  People can have tea or water, but no food.  A purely American invention.  And the card designs will feature vast landscapes of barren desert.
