By the way, mine is Snickers, but I would have to say there are quite a few that come close: York Peppermint patty, non-parrels (little chocolates with white sprinkles on it), Sweet Tarts, grape Laffy Taffy, Hershey's with Almonds and I am sure I will think of several others later. :)
Thanks for all the comments. Interesting responses. Any new readers feel free to leave your answers as well.

What I learned in clinic this week....
Pour 2 ounces of vodka and 6 ounces of orange juice into a ice-filled highball glass. Stir briefly. Slowly pour 1/2 ounce of Galliano on top of the drink, so that is is floating on top. Enjoy.
Oh the joys of clinic!! Never thought taking a social history would turn into a lesson on the finer art of drinking cocktails!
Ever wonder about how they name those tropical storms?

Experience shows that the use of short, distinctive given names in written as well as spoken communications is quicker and less subject to error than the older more cumbersome latitude-longitude identification methods. These advantages are especially important in exchanging detailed storm information between hundreds of widely scattered stations, coastal bases, and ships at sea.
Since 1953, Atlantic tropical storms have been named from lists originated by the National Hurricane Center and now maintained and updated by an international committee of the World Meteorological Organization. The lists featured only women's names until 1979, when men's and women's names were alternated. Six lists are used in rotation. Thus, the 2004 list will be used again in 2010. Here is more information on the history of naming hurricanes.
The only time that there is a change in the list is if a storm is so deadly or costly that the future use of its name on a different storm would be inappropriate for reasons of sensitivity. If that occurs, then at an annual meeting by the WMO committee (called primarily to discuss many other issues) the offending name is stricken from the list and another name is selected to replace it.

ba-ba (the sad section)
On another note, I watched Hotel Rwanda last night. It really humbles you into how well off you have it. We complain when our neighbor's dog won't shut up when we trying to sleep...... and other places you have to worry about someone entering your home and killing you while you sleep. I wish more of the "West," could see this type of movie. I guess I was in the mood to be enlightened as well because my mom informed me yesterday a high school peer of mine had died in Iraq. Though I didn't know Anthony that well, I still had a couple classes with him and he was a funny kid and I am sure shall be missed greatly.

Inside: (And you thought getting older was the only thing we had to worry about.)
:) Hope everyone has a great 4th of July weekend!
