    New month. Hopefully a good one for all of us.
    Bank of America is THE godfather of Hell with Wells Fargo running neck and neck. When the world ends the only things that will be left are cockroaches, Walmart, Wells Fargo and Bank of America. Not necessarily in that order. The order remains to be seen.

    Caribou hind quarters, heart and liver and about 20 lbs of fresh halibut. It was a good "haul" for us.

    After looking ALL SUMMER for a summer bathrobe, found one for free at a yard sale - nice cotton one stolen from a hotel in AZ. Also got a bunch of cleaning supplies at another yard sale, free. And a CFL light bulb.
