Who will win the UEFA Champions League Final 2017?

J: Come on! You should know which team I love! LOL…



Gordon Brunt
The adoring fans of Gianluigi Buffon will be robbed, once again, of the chance to see the famous Juventus 'keeper hoist football's most coveted prize. Similar to the 2015 final against Barcelona, the timing isn't on Juve's side as the Serie A champion attempts to dethrone a Real Madrid squad bursting with confidence on the heels winning La Liga, as well as dismantling Bayern Munich and humbling the great Manuel Neuer in the semi-finals.

Although Cristiano Ronaldo and company have the almighty challenge of attempting to penetrate Juve's defensive fortress, expect Buffon to lead the charge when the Bianconeri collect their runners-up medals.

Score: Real Madrid 2, Juventus 1

Fun wih English - Coca-Cola


Fun with English - Coca-Cola

J: Ummm… Actually, I seldom drink Coca-Cola.

Coca-Cola Wiki

Coca-Cola is a carbonated soft drink produced by The Coca-Cola Company. Originally intended as a patent medicine, it was invented in the late 19th century by John Pemberton and was bought out by businessman Asa Griggs Candler, whose marketing tactics led Coca-Cola to its dominance of the world soft-drink market throughout the 20th century. The drink's name refers to two of its original ingredients, which were kola nuts and coca leaves. The current formula of Coca-Cola remains a trade secret, although a variety of reported recipes and experimental recreations have been published.

The Coca-Cola Company produces concentrate, which is then sold to licensed Coca-Cola bottlers throughout the world. The bottlers, who hold exclusive territory contracts with the company, produce the finished product in cans and bottles from the concentrate, in combination with filtered water and sweeteners. A typical 12-US-fluid-ounce (350 ml) can contains 38 grams (1.3 oz) of sugar. The bottlers then sell, distribute, and merchandise Coca-Cola to retail stores, restaurants, and vending machines throughout the world. The Coca-Cola Company also sells concentrate for soda fountains of major restaurants and foodservice distributors.
