  7. I found this recipe in a Weight Watchers magazine several years ago. My family LOVES this cheesecake, the entire house smells like a coffee house when it is cooking. My daughter requested this cake for her birthday this year. Enjoy!! Crockpot Mocha Cheesecake with Chocolate Crumb Crust CRUST 1 cup finely crushed chocolate wafer cookies or chocolate graham crackers 2 Tablespoons sugar 2 Tablespoons butter melted ( light butter can be used) FILLING 2 teaspoons instant coffee granules (2 Tablespoons if you like it strong) 2 teaspoons warm water ( Use 2 Tablespoons of this also) 2 (8oz) pkg. light cream cheese @ room temp. ½ cup firmly packed brown sugar ½ cup fat free egg substitute 1/3 cup chocolate syrup (Lite Hershey’s can be used) To prepare crust , combine the cookie crumbs and sugar with a fork. In a small bowl. Add the butter and mix well. Press into a 7 in. spring form pan; refrigerate 15 min. ( I use disposable 8 inch aluminum pan pressed to fit.) In another bowl, blend the coffee granules and the water until dissolved, set aside. With an electric mixer on med. speed, beat the cream cheese and brown sugar in a mixing bowl until very smooth. Beat in the egg substitute. Add the chocolate syrup and the espresso mixture and beat until well mixed, scraping the bowl as necessary. Pour into the crust. To place the pan in and remove it from the slow cooker, cut two 20x6 in. strips of heavy foil. Fold lengthwise into thirds, cross them and place the filled pan in the center of the cross. Bring the four strips up and use as a handle. Place the pan in the slow cooker . Cover and cook on high until nearly firm but still slightly wobbly in the center , 3 hours. Turn off the slow cooker and let the cake stand uncovered, until cool enough to handle, about 30 minutes. Use the foil strips to lift the pan out of the cooker. Cool completely then cover and refrigerate 8 hours. 10 servings , 246 cal. 11g fat, 1 g fiber weight watcher points value 6

  9. Aussie Ghost Story True Australian Ghost Story This story happened a while ago in Brisbane, and even though it sounds like an Alfred Hitchcock tale, it's true. John Bradford, a Sydney University student, was on the side of the road hitch hiking on a very dark night and in the midst of a storm. The night was rolling on and no car went by. The storm was so strong he could hardly see a few feet ahead of him. Suddenly he saw a car slowly coming towards him and stopped. John, desperate for shelter and without thinking about it, got in the car and closed the door, only to realize there was nobody behind the wheel and the engine wasn't on! The car started moving slowly. John looked at the road and saw a curve approaching. Scared, he started to pray, begging for his life. Then, just before he hit the curve, a hand appeared through the window and turned the wheel. John, paralyzed with terror, watched how the hand appeared every time they came to a curve. John saw the lights of a pub down the road so, gathering strength, jumped out of the car and ran to it. Wet and out of breath, he rushed inside and asked for two shots of tequila. He then started telling everybody about the horrible experience he went through. A silence enveloped everybody when they realized he was crying and he wasn't drunk. About 15 minutes later, two guys walked into the same pub. They were also wet and out of breath. Looking around and seeing John Bradford sobbing at the bar, one said to the other, "Look Bruce, there's the idiot that got in the car while we were pushing it."
  10. I have had this problem from time to time and have talked to one other member with the same problem. Consider eating something higher in points that you really like. For example my favorite pick me up drink is a Starbucks Frappuccino but had to limit them due to higher points. When I fell into a slump of not eating enough points I would add a drink to my daily diet. Remember you don't want to go below your points, your body will stop losing. Good Luck!!

  13. Curtain Rods She spent the first day packing her belongings into boxes, crates and suitcases. On the second day, she had the movers come and collect her things. On the third day, she sat down for the last time at their beautiful dining room table by candlelight, put on some soft background music, and feasted on a pound of shrimp, a jar of caviar, and a bottle of Chardonnay. When she had finished, she went into each and every room and deposited a few half-eaten shrimp shells, dipped in caviar, into the hollow of the curtain rods. She then cleaned up the kitchen and left. When the husband returned with his new girlfriend, all was bliss for the first few days. Then slowly, the house began to smell. They tried everything; cleaning and mopping and airing the place out. Vents were checked for dead rodents, and carpets were steam cleaned. Air fresheners were hung everywhere. Exterminators were brought in to set off gas canisters, during which they had to move out for a few days, and in the end they even paid to replace the expensive wool carpeting. Nothing worked. People stopped coming over to visit. Repairmen refused to work in the house. The maid quit... Finally, they could not take the stench any longer and decided to move. A month later, even though they had cut their price in half, they could not find a buyer for their stinky house. Word got out, and eventually, even the local Realtors refused to return their calls. Finally, they had to borrow a huge sum of money from the bank to purchase a new place. The ex-wife called the man, and asked how things were going. He told her the saga of the rotting house. She listened politely, and said that she missed her old home terribly, and would be willing to reduce her divorce settlement in exchange for getting the house back... Knowing his ex-wife had no idea how bad the smell was, he agreed on a price that was about 1/10th of what the house had been worth...But only if she were to sign the papers that very day. She agreed, and within the hour, his lawyers delivered the paperwork. A week later, the man and his new girlfriend stood smirking as they watched the moving company pack everything to take to their new home... including the curtain rods...
  14. When the slider is on the line, for example it falls exactly on a line between 2 and 3, how many points should be counted? 1 fiber,100 calories, 8 fat equals 2 or 3 points ? Thanks for your help.
