And that's why the dairy case is at the back of the store. Most people buy some dairy. You have to walk all the way to the back of the store to get it and pass all that other stuff on the way, stuff that might tempt you.

I dug the starting-to-get-wrinkly, home- grown apples out of the fridge, cut them up and am making applesauce in the CP.

We have one supermarket in town that has a small dairy case up front with milk, butter and eggs in it, and next to a rolling rack of loaves of bread. It surprises me that they do that because usually they WANT you to walk all over the store.

Maybe they figure if they are the only store that does that, they will "catch" the folks who just want to make a quick stop for a loaf of bread and something out of the dairy case.

The new Giant Eagle has a small "convenience section" as soon as you walk in. I usually go in through the pharmacy end of the store and am close to the main dairy aisle, but I walk across the front of the store and start in produce where I am used to, passing the small dairy and bread section along the way. Good concept, but what they need is an express aisle for people who don't like to use plastic for a $3 purchase

When I was rooting through my fabric cabinet looking for more jeans for projects, I came across a pair I'd embroidered when I must have been around 15. They weren't made long enough back then, so I'd attached a 3 inch band at the bottom from some other cannibalized pair. Made me smile to see all the embroidery!

I had a denim jacket I had put appliques and embroidered with pictures, etc. This was in High School, I have no idea what happened to it. A lot of things went missing during my divorce.

I watched that tonight too, Princess, and was also infuriated and in tears. SeaWorld needs to be shut down.
