   Gerty posted on Main Page The Lobby  I just received news to my e-mail that Walmart is having a GIANT rollback event. Wow, I can hardly wait to see what Christmas-in-July deals await me.

Never mind. Just picked out one item for a test run: Set of 3 Sterlite storage draws $16.86. That, my friends, represents the savings of $1.02.

I kid you NOT.

   Gerty posted on Pet Peeves  OK!! Where is it? What have you done with it!?!

I'm talking about my precious GARLIC!

Yes, you read that right. I am distraught. I am not complaining about the 79-99 cents cost of a head of garlic----I'm talking about the taste. Some one has robbed the taste out of every clove of garlic while we were not looking.

'fess-up! Who did it?

   Gerty posted on Main Page The Lobby  In tune with Miss Bettijo's post below, Drudge reports this AM that Farrakhan demands that the USA flag needs to be put down.

Rush is right!

   Gerty  I think anyone who wants to put down the Stars and Stripes should be convicted of high crimes---further, the penalty should be EXILE for life.

We should give them free passage to any country of their choice or any country who will have them--which ever comes first.

   Gerty posted on Coffee Klatch  Miss Bettijo, I need to comment on your great closing sentence at the end of your comment below.

"It does not cost anything to be considerate."

Good for you!! Aside from my parents and Grandmother, I was taught by a boat-load of religious teachers. Year after year the message was taught: You don't have to have a million dollars to act like you do! Of course, they were referring to the positive aspects of being brought up in a wealthy environment. I have a small list of things that don't cost money along with consideration.

Thank some one for any compliment given in the form of words or gifts. You don't even need the cost of a postage stamp today---use any form of e-mail.
You don't have to be the Queen of England to eat neatly.
Prince William's wife Kate, always appears 'fully dressed' and in good taste. It doesn't take a lot of money to cover up.
While not costing a penny, you will 'spend' some time with an elderly person...just making some small conversation and a good part to their day.

   Gerty  This appears on the Pet Peeves Wall. Not sure many would see it, so I double posted it.

   Gram77  You know Gerty, I had a good life while growing up in the 30s with my great grand parents and a bunch of relatives. We all lived on a large farm and all worked hard. All these people taught me to reach out to those who were hurting and hungry and to give whenever we could. It seems perfectly natural and normal to me even today to help, to say something nice, and to share. Doesn't cost a penny to be nice. Frankly, I think it's a great feeling.

   Balogreene  I had immigrant (Norway and Sweden ) great grandparents. Mom remembers, during the depression, one of the grandfathers worked for the WPA, the Salvation Army (was a preacher, not sure he got paid ), shipbuilding on the Great Lakes, and anything else he could do. His wife always told my mom (her granddaughter ), It doesn't cost much to stay clean, only a bar of soap, and you can make that yourself!

   Gerty posted on Coffee Klatch  Don't know to which wall this belongs.

Since we don't have a "Sick to my stomach to see" wall, I'll just place it here.

Upon removing the tags from a new mattress cover, I discovered that it was made in the USA---with materials imported from China!! It made me sick to my stomach to see!

   Balogreene  Altho I got my mattresses from Ikea, and they are made in Sweden (I sleep on a European-style bed, very thin mattress, good wooden support underneath ).

   Gerty posted on Main Page The Lobby  Is there someone out there who can explain why our Republican representatives in Congress are ready to pass a bill without reading it. Isn't there something basically un-American about this?

   Gerty posted on Coffee Klatch  Unaccustomed as I am of bloviating (ahem! ), I should like to publically thank Miss Bettijo. The information you provide here on the Connection has helped me in so many ways and on a variety of levels. Thank you for the time you take to keep us informed.
