I have it on good authority that it costs about $15,000 to raise a medium-size dog to the age of 10. That's about $4 a day. If you have a medium-size dog, now you know, or maybe you already knew…..if you don't have one of those pooches, maybe now you know why…
The other thing I noticed was an historical reference to Coca-Cola.
Modern Coke in a 12-ounce can has 39 grams of carbohydrates, the equivalent of 10 teaspoons of sugar. That's the reason you should lay off the 32-ounce Big Gulps, think 27 teaspoons….
Mr. Pemberton called his carbonated elixir "Coca-Cola" because the original recipe included quite a few coca leaves (yup, that's right, cocaine) and the caffeine-rich kola nut.
The Coca-Cola company stopped adding the cocaine in 1903. I wonder what consumers thought about the "new Coke" in 1904?
