Time and Money:

Five Time Puzzles

 

Today's Snack: OK, OK, have some candy for your snack - once in a great while. The best kind is probably hard candy. Although it does have sugar in it, and if you suck on it long enough and often enough, you'll rot your teeth, at least there's no fat in it, and it does take a long time to melt, which keeps your mouth too busy for more high-calorie foods. If you really want to help your teeth, you'll drink lots of water during and after a hard candy snack to wash the acid away from your teeth, and brush your teeth afterwards, too.
