Well, we certainly couldn't handle the crispy creme donuts either. It was like eating sugar cubes....

I've had buddies go down to the US and make it to an American Tims, and order an XL and get that behemoth 24 oz abomination. He was so happy.... I, on the other hand, would be terrified and need to find a friend to share that thing with.....

I can't eat those either. I like a glazed donut every once in awhile. Not very often maybe 2-3 times a year. The crispy cremes hurt my teeth on the first bite. I get my sugar and wheat fix with beer.

The 24 oz is what I call the rider. I buy one close to home and by the time I get to work it's done.

I may have used to many adjectives on that one. The maxwell house coffee I have is weak. Need to get to Costco for some Columbian whole bean. Or as I like to call it legal cocaine.

I've heard of having your picture on the back of a milk carton, but never a bag of milk on a picture of a kid

As is ALL Marketing and Packaging.

we don't have 'em anymore.

When I grew up we had bag milk. and an orange jug not blue.

Delivery too!


I remember on tuesday and thurday morning, as soon as one of us kids woke up we had to get the milk off the step or we'd have 3 bags of frozen milk to try to have cereal with.


This was before microwaves as well

I miss milk delivery.... When I was good for a week, mom would get Barry (yes I remember his name), to drop off chocolate milk. I also miss the peach juice he had... I can't find it anywhere now.

Re: Warning Canada! Important!!!!


I just finished off a pot of coffee. I am no more alert than I was this morning.

I did manage to get draft sight installed on my 64 bit linux box. Then I uninstalled it when I was trying to fix some dependencies......

I blame it on the coffee or lack there of.
