Is that ALL you got, BC? We usually come home with a lot more from Costco!

The Kirkland Plain Non-fat Yogurt is fantastic!!! Better than the brands I get in the regular stores. I stir in fresh fruit I have sweetened with a bit of honey.

Market Basket had their chickens turning again when I shopped last Friday. They didn't have any wrapped on the counter, so I asked the clerk behind the counter when they were putting out the "crack chickens". Wouldn't you know it, when I shopped today another one of those things hopped right into my cart!

The Opera House in Manchester was rescued too but the Theatre Royal became a bingo hall and and then a nightclub and is now derelict.
Cleveland OH restored most of their early-1920s-built theatres in the 1970s. It was done in fits-and-starts, so I think they finished up the very last one (fifth) within the past decade or so. Cleveland is said to have the largest theatre district after New York City, but it depends on how it is computed. Playhouse Square has five historic theatres in a two-block radius. Don't know the seat capacity though. Although I've done community theatre on and off since the early 1970's (mostly "off), I knew the entire Greater Cleveland region had a goodly number of theatres. However, I did not realize just HOW many until I found this article: Cleveland Third Largest Theater District | Events in Cleveland Since that article says Cleveland ranks 3rd, I had to hunt down who claimed to be 2nd. Detroit. But, again, depends on if your counting seats in a smaller or larger measured area. I'm just glad to see that cities are fighting about who has more theatres, not who has more crime!

i remember seeing people start to line up at the meat counter in costco once, but no one appeared to be buying anything. i asked a lady on line what it was about, and she whispered ," the rotisserie chickens are about to come out."

the rest of the people on the line either shhhhh'd or just glared at her.

i felt like i was at a meth clinic when it was dosage time.
