    Re: ~cattleman cafe~ & another 24...

    I agree with you QW about shopping at local businesses vs. the big box retailers. Sadly, prices keep rising making it difficult to shop at many of the smaller stores. With the economy the way it is, and being on a fixed income, I've had to make a lot of changes in my spending. On a more cheery note, it's a beautiful morning out here on the porch!

    24 more please and thank you!

    I would say that 90% of our grocery shopping is done at our local Co-op, but at least twice a year we do go to Costco to stock up on paper products and a few other things that Costco has at better prices than anywhere else. I do all my personal shopping (clothes, shoes, etc.) either here in Veg or in Vermilion.

    Going to be a darn good day to cut the grass! lol

    Re: ~cattleman cafe~ & another 24...

    Another 24 hours please & thank you.

    Jude, being on a fixed income is the main reason I’m shopping more and more at big box retail. I don’t particularly like big box retail but feel theres little choice as prices go up but income doesn’t. Anyone else think there’s a lot of price gouging going on?
    Since Mrs QW’s PD diagnosis 6 years ago I’ve assumed shopping duties and don’t mind it.
    Cowboy, we have a Coop close by and I still shop there but mostly buy sale items.

    It was a beautiful day for a hike at one of our favourite parks yesterday. I took about 20 photos and will edit them today.

    I’m stuffed after that great brekkie so I’m off for a walk. Have a great af day everyone!

    Time to finish packing/shopping for our camping trip with family. Not sure about connectivity there but I'll mentally check in every day, if not!

    Rava, how are you feeling? Hopefully, you're better today.

    Pauly, thinking of you. Techie, you too.

    I'll take another day!

    Ginger, have fun on your camping trip! Check in when you can. How long will you be away?

    QW, I guess there is probably some gouging going on, but I don't believe it is a common practice at the local level. I really believe there is pricing pressure. Heck! fuel costs for the transport of goods to market is a definite problem. And I think labor costs are higher which factors in. I am no economist, but I just feel like it's logical that the cost of goods is rising. Free market competition pressures local stores to compete to get folks into stores, so gouging can't be all that common. Of course, I am speaking from my experience in the US. I don't know if perhaps things are done differently in Canada. I'm pretty sure there is gouging going on in the oil markets tho, as they seem to have a corner on the market currently.

    Not much fun outside here today as it is my least favorite combination: hot and humid. I'm hoping for a thunderstorm to clear this oppressive atmosphere.

    No drinking today.
    Dill

    Donít forget, you can: start late, start over, be unsure, try and fail AND STILL SUCCEED!

    If it is important to you, you will find a way. If not, you will find an excuse.
