The bread I buy is quite solid, i.e. organic stoneground wholemeal so could go in first!

I wonder if others do what I do - I always put the meat/poultry/fish in a smaller plastic bag that has the milk carton in it and tie them up together. That way it stays fairly chilled until I get home, since I walk and take buses.

I asked one person (worker) to help me. According to him, I didn't know how to use it properly. It would start and just STOP with a jerk. I almost banged my head on the handle console. It took me 20 minutes to get the dang thing up front where a lovely girl transferred all my groceries to a cart she tested and knew would work. But those 20 minutes of fighting that cart left me exhausted. Spike put my groceries away (bless his heart) and I had to lay down after taking some of my heart meds. The Pirate came by later and did the meats for me. He even straightened out the freezer. I fell asleep for four hours. That battle with the defective cart just knocked me for a loop!

I used to have a sweatshirt with a bear and a big sundae. It said "life is short, eat dessert first". I "ate dessert first" so often the shirt didn't fit and I sold it in a garage sale.

Help me Lord

Heard this on a recent Joel Osteen program.

Pastor was out bear hunting and had no luck, he threw his gun on the ground, and sat my a stream to relax, all of a sudden he see's a bear running straight toward him, the Pastor stood up, and said Lord I need help rescue me, make this bear a christian bear. All of a sudden the bear stops in his tracks, looks toward the sky, and says thank you Lord for this food I am about to eat.
