I lived in Lodi years ago, 1979 , Worked in Clifton once 1980. I bet things have changed since , new stores , stores out of business etc.

We've gone very enviornomentally aware in Ireland, a couple of years ago the Government introduced a levy on plastic bags of 15c now 22c, so 95% of the time bring own canvas bag, unless of course they're in boot of other car! Must admit i hate packing so tend to drag hubbie with me for the big shops!

You don't have a choice over here---you bag yourself and you'd better be quick because the next person's groceries will coming piling over yours. So much fun!! What infuriates me is that some of the groceries will have 3 or 4 guys just standing around doing nothing most of the time.

The only difference between a "cook" and a "Chef" is who cleans up the kitchen.
