Most of us know prices are higher than they were just a few years ago, but I found some 1938 grocery specials that sounded almost unreal. Grab this! Beef steak .18 cents a pound, beef roast 12.5 cents a pound and a jar of peanut butter .19 cents. I remember when the cooks at North Elementary put peanut butter on celery sticks as part of our lunch. This was usually served on days we had chili. Are schools allowed to serve peanut butter anymore or chili? There’s all kinds of rules and regulations school cooks have to follow these days.
A friend who sends anonymous corrections (most of them right) sent a letter about using the words “Daylight Savings Time.” The sender is correct, no “S” on the word “Savings.” When I originally typed that word I momentarily brooded over the “S” and decided to leave it. Seems that most of us say it that way. I thank my pen pal for the message, to which he or she added, “How can we expect our school children to learn correctly, when our professional media personnel with years of experience don’t know singular from plural?” Thank you for the comment and I stand corrected. Drop by the office and I’ll give you some celery with peanut butter. Hey, isn’t life grand!
News From The BIG APPLE! The Mayor of New York had his computer seized by the FBI as part of a corruption investigation. His Honor happened to be in D.C. when this occurred. He was there to talk about our open southern border and the devastating affect it’s having on his city. Mayor Adams (A Democrat) has been openly critical of the President on this issue. Wonder if this is a real case or payback? Good Lord, they’re eating their own now. Seems to be a pattern here, doesn’t it? Amazing the FBI acted so quickly when they drag their feet on other investigations. I recall another country that once employed government workers who later said, “We were just doing our job.”
It’s a crazed world that may blow up at any minute. Hang in there and hold on tight Old Buddy.
