  • So we all know that money doesn’t buy happiness…now wine…but chocolate?  Say it isn’t so…

    I still believe this great quote about chocolate from the 1970’s

    Mary Richards: Oh Rhoda, chocolate doesn’t solve anything.

    Rhoda Morgenstern: No Mare, cottage cheese solves nothing; chocolate can do it all!

    • That’s a great quote!

      I think my father who is a statistics professor might argue about the validity of my analysis – particularly when it comes to my conclusions on wine and happiness!
