    Not yet, but my black book is getting pretty full.

    For those wondering why I do this, it's simple, you write down the store you visit, save all receipts, dates and times, and when you think you're not getting the deal today as you got two weeks ago, you can reference to see if you are or not. This is especially useful when it comes to car repairs, which might have had a warranty.

    But, have I ever tried to force my way into a store, any store that was closing? no.

    I have gone to the back of Gonella Baking and Cardinalli's Bakery early before opening, to acquire warm fresh bread straight out of their ovens.

    Sure they did.

    Pick 'n Save

    But your pic and save isn't the same as my Pick n Save.

    The national chain did stop existing in 1991 when they renamed themselves MacFrugals, then sold the chain to Big Lots and ceased to exist altogether. Pick 'n Save is a little local store chain in Wisconsin.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Well, I did type Pick N Save in the post you responded to, and not in your version of pic n sav, didn't I.

    FYI, I looked that information up because I have heard of pic n sav.

    You should do some more research about Pick n Save (Roundy's Inc)

    they're not just some rinky dink outfit centered in Wisconsin, which probably pisses people like you off.

    I had an uncle who kept logs of every penny he spent, he noted it even if it was just a 50¢ candy bar.

    When he passed away, we went through drums of old jounals, dating back to the 1950's. Discovered that he had purchased 100 ozs of gold in the 70's, then we found 50 little certificates which said that the gold coins were 999 fine. One note made in the 1980's said "not interested in gold", so we thought that maybe he sold then gold at that point, but there was no corresponding deposit in any account to indicate that.

    Sometime during the 1970's he had told my mother that he had buried treasure beside an outbuilding. We rented a backhoe and dug down to the water table, didn't find anything. We even hired a psychic and dug where he told us he "felt something".

    One day, I was cleaning out one of his outbuildings and a felt like I needed a break, so I wondered into a different outbuilding, and noticed an ammo can sitting on a table. Opened it up, and there was the gold (not really, it was empty). I glanced over at a shelf, and under a pile of trash I saw something that looked like a large cloth money bag, much like the ones that we picture bank robbers with. I tugged on the bag, it was quite rotten, and pennies started flooding the floor. Turned out that there were around 50 $50 bags of pennies in there, plus quite a few ammo cans of pennies.

    I've always wondered if that empty ammo can contained the gold coins, and if someone else found them first.

    The same people who demanded that Obama take ownership of the economy and to stop blaming our bad economy on Bush, now desire Obama not to take credit for our economic successes.

    Maybe it just didn't come out like you meant it, but it sounds that you are claiming that only the left lies, blames, and taxes. I think we are taking it that way because most people equate the "progressive" with "the left".

    "I for one hope that America is waking up to what progressive rule actually means in real terms....All the lies, all the blaming, all the subterfuge, and most importantly all of the hidden taxation, and loss of true liberty that goes on with a progressive thought process in place "

    And you just did the same thing...Putting me in a box, while failing to quote me in context will not help your argument.

    That's an excellent story, I really enjoyed it, and thank you for posting.

    I think back to my buddy Greg, whose dad was a farmer. At harvests, he would go to the grain weigh station, and after all the trips were made with the haulers, he'd go in and collect the money for the grain he sold. He'd then drive over to the local bank and cash the drafts, make deposits, and take a little bit out and salt it away.

    We his dad was killed during a farming accident, it was tragic, Greg was at a loss for sometime on what to do. He decided to sell what he could and tried to hold onto the farm. He was cleaning his dad's pickup truck one day to sell it, when he'd found an old mailbag under the bench seat, and in it was $20K. Now Greg didn't need to sell the truck, or the farm, and had money enough for the funeral expenses and a little extra to get by on.
