    So instead of “Hallelujah” we should say “Ben and Jerry”?

    this reminds me of a scene from the Mixels (the LEGO brand with the same name): Ice Cream does make everything better.

    We are here to make more of us and thus give the wheel another spin. Beyond that, have fun, and BTW, giving that wheel another spin isn’t at all necessary anymore.

    In Cincinnati it is called Being Governed by a Graeters Power. It’s esoteric.

    It’s sad that not everyone will accept it but the Bible is clear that our purpose is to love and serve God with all our heart, soul, mind, and strength. We are to love our neighbors and reach out to them with the love of Christ.

    Unless you’re diabetic. Even sugar-free ice cream has WAY too many carbs! If you make your own it doesn’t taste like ice cream.

    “Perhaps I’m old and tired, but I think that the chances of finding out what’s actually going on are so absurdly remote that the only thing to do is to say, ‘Hang the sense of it,’ and keep yourself busy. I’d much rather be happy than right any day.”—Slartibartfast

    True: Do my best.. my spoken aspiration. True: I’ve eaten a half gal. of IC in one setting every night for over 30 years. The last decade I’ve eased up.. about a quart/night. I’m 5’8”, 140 lbs, 21% body fat, gym fit.

    One could say that is my life. Eh, same joy, anger and fear like everyone.

    Tips: Only buy vanilla, add your own mix-ins. IC is sold by volume but in reality you are paying by weight. Weigh the products and be blown away! Best is, imo, Kirkland Super Premium Vanilla.

    ‘Just’ ice cream is not the best we can do.
