My doctor says I am a bad candidate for sleep meds like Ambien or Lunesta because I live alone, I sleep naked, and I own a convertible!

Yup, not a good candidate...

LOL Really? I remember having to have "3.2" beer bought for us on Sundays WAY back in the day. ;) Does that stuff still exist?

Yes, I remember 3.2! We had to cross the border into Minnesota to get it! Otherwise, no booze on Sundays.

Strange laws (liquor, not MM)-----In Albuquerque NM you can't buy liquor until AFTER 12 noon on Sunday. Do they have that law so no one will buy liquor to take to church??

But it does lead to long lines of people, still dressed in their go -to-church clothes at liquor stores at noon on Sunday.

Virginia didn't allow liquor sales on Sunday when we moved here in the 1980s, but that's changed and now you can from noon till 9 pm, I think. When my mom was growing up in the '50s, you could not buy liquor by the drink in restaurants - you had to buy an entire bottle from the state-run package store. It's a leftover from when more religious people were in charge of the legislatures.

But--but--but----- That's one way to make more money for the liquor industry, right?

I would think it would be less. Restaurants selling cocktails would be buying a lot more liquor than individuals.

I guess I'm not understanding. (Won't be the first time!)

I thought it was said:
"you could not buy liquor by the drink in restaurants - you had to buy an entire bottle from the state-run package store."

Was that just how it used to be and not now?

I believe it is still that way in Utah.
