Today you should begin to think about changing from the ordinary bottled juice to freshly squeezed juice. Not only will you save money you will improve your health while you are at it.

World Religion Day
- to foster the establishment of interfaith understanding and harmony by emphasizing the common denominators underlying all religions. Mankind, which has stemmed from one origin, must now strive towards the reconciliation of that which has been split up. Human unity and true equality depend not on past origins, but on future goals, on what we are becoming and whither we are going.
