Do you ever think about the stuff you have in regards to where it was and where it has been?

A little jar of mayonnaise I ordered along with some other items, is shipping by itself. It has
been traveling the USA for several weeks.

When I finally receive the little jar of mayonnaise, I think I should cherish it with all my might.
I shall never consume it. I shall place it on a stand as one would a statue. 'Here sit's little jar
of mayonnaise that traveled the USA'. People shall visit from near and far to see my little jar
of mayo.

Safe arrival little jar of mayonnaise. I await in anticipation.

Walmart shipping is 'deplorable'. Did I really say that word?

I don't care. I rarely fly any more so it doesn't affect me personally.

I'm very jealous of your azaleas that bloom sometimes in the the winter. That would never happen here!

I have some dark pink azalea bushes at the front of the house on either side of the porch.
Today, they still had some blooms on them. They do start looking a little funky by Jan.

I planted several white azalea bushes this Fall. Most of those are small and do not have blooms.
Got a good deal on them at Lowe's end of season clearance so couldn't resist. :lol:

7 Million registrations- Congrats Clixsense » Post #14

It really isn't all that much...maybe it points to how many of the users are inactive, rarely active, just click ads etc as another GPT site like this I belong to which is a year younger passed the $100 million payout threshold last year. Of course, Clixsense for a long time was purely PTC whereas the other site was GPT from the beginning so that explains some of it but CS pay more than the other site for tasks, offers etc. Just find it strange that the numbers aren't higher :?

Anyway, congrats CS on reaching that number and it will be 10 Million users before long :D :clap:

Not sure what site you are talking about.

The very first PTC to become more of a GPT, was online over ten years ago for about two years and
then they closed down. That is the only one I know of.

ClixSense was the first PTC to implement GPT. I know because I am the one that suggested it
and helped them locate the affiliate surveys/etc.

I never pay any attention to numbers like that. It only takes a click of the finger to update stats
on a page. So just because a program says they paid out a 100 mil, doesn't mean they did. Just
like programs that say they are selling their members referrals when all they are doing is selling

For those of you living in 4-season areas, how do you prepare for the arctic blast? I have a primal need to run out to the grocery store to get food (especially to make home made chili). I stack straw around my roses. And I do everything I possibly can to ensure I don't have to stick my nose out the door for the next few days.

:lol: That put a big smile on my face.

I live in West Tennessee and the weather here is rather mild usually in the winter, compared to those
in the Northern states. My complaint is usually in the Summer months because it gets very hot and
very humid here. We do get some snow in this area but some winters none at all and other winters
usually only a dusting or maybe an inch. It seems when the weather gets bad here in the winter, it
si due to ice but even so, it's not like happens every day.

The temps are only recently dropping for us in this area. The days are still in the 50's and 60's but
yep, this week, tonight and tomorrow night, it is suppose to get down into the teens. I plug the heating
pads up in the outdoor cat houses.

Food? Well, I am always prepared food wise. I live in a rural area and my main shopping offline is
done once per month at the local Walmart. I hate going to Walmart so I tend to go only once a
month and often have to make more than one trip into the store. Items like milk and bread, I may
pick up at the nearby dollar store. I have a chest freezer and keep it well stocked. My pantry has
plenty of can goods and dry goods. I have too much in regards to spices and seasoning.

I don't really have anything to cover up. I have the knock out azaleas several places at my house
and they bloom well and some times on through the winter.

This topic made me think of 'Service Merchandise'. I am not sure if they are in business any longer.
Years ago they did very well, even had large catalogs that people could order from.

The way Service Merchandise worked is, you walk in the store and look at the items. Household goods,
etc. Beside each item was a set of cards. Say you saw a toaster for $20. You could look at it, read about
it and then if you wanted it, you would either take a card from the card slot by the toaster or you would
simply write down the product number. You would do all your shopping in the store like that. When you
finished, you would take the numbers to the check out area. They would tally your order, you would pay
and get a receipt, and then wait for your items to be brought to you.

I guess the main idea of Service Merchandise was they didn't need to pay for shopping carts. They
didn't need to pay people to constantly stock the shelves. They didn't lose money from theft like
many stores....after all, all they would have is ONE item on the shelf of each product.

They seemed to focus more and more on jewelry.

One thing that I really liked about Service Merchandise and that is, everybody wasn't touching and
sneezing on the product you bought. It was all warehoused in the back.

So that is still the problem I see with Amazon's Go store. People can pick items up, sneeze on them
and put them back on the shelf. :lol:

When I am getting groceries, or most anything for that matter, I try not to touch things unless I am
seriously interested in it. When I get home with my groceries, I wipe the items down before I shelve
them in my cabinets and fridge. I always wash cans off before I open them.

I Don't know if Amazon Go will fly but like David, I sure see where it is leading.

'Allied' with Brad Pitt. It was ok. Starts out rather boring. It picks up but also becomes a
little predictable.

'Siren' I am not sure what you would call it scary movie I guess. A guy is going to get married so
his brother and two buddies decide to take him out for a good time before the wedding is to take place.
They go to a sleazy bar (and this part actually has some hilarious moments). While at the bar they meet
a man that tells them he can take them a real place that has what they're looking for. That's when the
action starts.

You are not suppose to have more than one account and if you do, you can be banned forever.
That is why you do NOT register for other people.

Your friend is suppose to sign up, not you signing him up.

After your friend signs up, he can let admin know if he goes to another country.

Well I suppose there are issues with phone loss now. I guess they might have secret codes or some
such, like an app, I think it displays in the video, you have to open it, log in, etc. Codes get broken
though. I guess it's just like a person's checkbook, you make sure you hang on to it.

Times have always changed and people change with it.

I think it is a pretty cool idea. Not sure how well that will catch on but could become a big hit.
I'd probably spend more than I would normally.

Hot Cocoa - Hot Coffee - EggNog - Drinks » Post #1

Ok this topic is not about booze per se.

Mainly I am wanting to know which Hot Chocolate mix that you think is the best?

Also, which Eggnog brand do you think is the best?

In the winter, I some times curl up with a snuggly blanket, a movie, and a large cup of hot chocolate.
I am lazy though, I use the powder mix. Some times I try one and then the other. I have a Keurig
but rarely use it.

Do you have some favorite brands?

At the very least, cut way down.

The issue with monsanto is they use genetic seeds that do not produce seeds.

They take over the sales of seeds and the farmer cannot buy but monsanto seeds and this also
leaves the farmer vulnerable to pricing. If your crop does not produce seeds, you are wholly
dependent upon purchasing seeds. Can you even begin to see where that is leading?

So, be sure and keep your seeds from whatever you grow IF it is hybrid seeds or not monsanto
seeds. If your fruits and veggies produce seeds, save them. Always plant enough so that you
will have new seeds yearly.

A carton of Marlboro in the USA cost roughly about $40.00 that is with tax included.

The price probably varies by about $5.00 from state to state. For example, Kentucky is no doubt one
of the cheaper states. I remember when I was in 8th grade, I paid about .50 cents for a pack of
marlboro in Chicago land. That summer before high school, went to Kentucky and paid .27 cents
for a pack of cigarettes. West Kentucky is tobacco farming country so the prices are cheaper. A
carton of marlboro in Kentucky probably cost about $35.00, a little cheaper than most all other

If I lived in Australia and was a smoker, I guess I would starve to death. I have a hard enough
time imagining people paying more than a buck for a pack of cigarettes and in Australia, I guess
the average price is $16.00 for marlboro. Unbelievable! Eat or Smoke. :lol:

Shouldn't booze bottles also have pictures on them showing for example damaged livers similar like cigarette packages showing damaged lungs ?

Probably because to an extent, it can be good for you. Not much good about tobacco.

It's like candy. Candy can be ok in moderation. Booze can be ok in moderation.
Also, they don't pollute the air or impose on others. Yes, that can be argued.

I grew dark fired tobacco many years ago. My ex husband grew up on a large farm. His father had
tobacco bases. Not just anyone can grow tobacco. You have to have a tobacco base. I'm not sure
what all they use dark fire tobacco for these days. Usually It was primarily used in snuff, chewing
tobacco, pipe tobacco. It wasn't used in cigarettes much.

It's a livelihood CatMonster. You know, the big machinery and big farm plantations are taking
over.....Monsanto and all that. The small farmer is being rooted out bit by bit as large companies
make it impossible for them to survive. Tobacco was always a major crop in states such as
Kentucky and Tennessee. Cut the crop, the farmer's suffer. A little different when it comes to
Jack Daniel.
