The problem with that statement is the word "may". It "may" be bad for you too! One thing is for sure - it's bad for my taste buds! I know it's actually good for you. I just never acquired a taste for it.
Love the banner though! It's gorgeous!

I am a strong believer in the simple fact is that what matters in this life is how we treat others. I think that's what living is all about. Not what I've done in my life but how I've treated others.
