Ice cream on discount?

A discount hard to resist Ice cream is my all time favourite. Actually it is one of my all time favourites since I basically have a sweet tooth.

James Rohn is but I do know one thing : I hang out most with two senior citizens ( one 84 year old father in law and an 81 year old mother in law), my 53 year old maid servant, my 45 year old driver and one of my 50+ friends.
