Many of us are probably welcoming 2012 with a hangover. This is excellent, it means it should only get better.

Todays article is a real life story. It illustrates why you should never to give up hope. There is some connection to food but its mainly about a wedding ring.
As you see in the photo, the carrot is wearing a wedding ring. No, the carrot is not married. It is sweet, single, organic and available The story started in 1995 when Lena Påhlsson, living in Sweden, lost her ring. She had put it on the kitchen counter during a holiday baking session. Lena and her husband searched thoroughly and failed to find the ring. They gave up hope of seeing it again.
Couple of months ago Lean gathered the last of the carrots from the family vegetable patch. One of the carrots was so small, she was about to throw it away when she realized that it had something attached to it. It was her wedding ring.
Several theories have been developed as to how a carrot ended up wearing Lena's ring. It may have fallen into the compostable food bin which was spread over the vegetable patch. Or it passed through the family's sheep, which is often fed kitchen scraps.
I guess the most important lesson from this amazing true story is to never give up hope. What you lose may turn up. In some cases it may have travelled through the digestive tracts, but it may turn up. Hang in there. I guess another lesson is that you don’t need a ring to keep the marriage intact. I think but I am no marriage counselor. And finally, eat carrots, they are good for you. If you have space grow your own.
