      We had much fun watching football yesterday!!  Lots of good games (and of course, my beloved Colts won so that makes the day even better :)

       

      I also saw the pink for National Breast Cancer awareness month… you know, just how much money is the ACS raking in with these promotions?  NFL, Target, Yoplait, M&Ms, General Mills, Nature Valley, Progresso, FritoLay, Pepsi, and on-and-on-and-on… are all turning pink for the month – my mind can't even fathom how much money this is generating!!!

      Not to take away from breast cancer, but surely, now that it is no longer the #1 killer of women, they could share just a smidgeon of that vast fortune? 

       

      And I'll admit, my cynical side has kicked in, too, while thinking of the tons and tons of money being raked in… wonder how many people are getting rich off the campaign?
