I buy my Sarbucks coffee at an Amish run bent&dent store. Bags of Starbucks beans or ground which sell for $10 at PickNSave, Domincks, etc. cost $2 at the bent and dent, packaging might be damaged but the coffee still works the same :)

Hey, you want to skimp on quality food to save a few bucks and put potential tainted goods in your body..fine. Keep in mind that most food banks will not accept expired food. If a street person won't eat it, then I won't either. Why not cut back on the "non essentials", ie cable tv, fashion plate clothes, latest techno gadget instead. If they break, at least you won't die of food poisoning.

Certified Grocers: 1 Gallon of Whole or 2% milk --$1.68 No strings attached.

Aldi's stores: 1 Gallon of Whole or 2% milk --$1.49 No strings attached.

But, if you want to "bid" on chips, stale candy bars and other junk food, go for it.

Your demented shadow is AVA, the very old bat. Look out for her because she like to bite people.
Hi! Just want to let you know, the book is coming along great. Ava is now co-authoring it with me! Isn't that wonderful! It's going to be even better with the 2 of us working on it, we both have so much experience with you.

We still could use your input and some photos though. I hope you will come around, it's really going to be a special tribute to you. And you won't get any royalties if you don't help, all the proceeds will go to me and Ava. Please get in touch soon, we want to have it out by fall. If it's a hit, there could be movie deals in the future, you never know.
Thanks!

Connecticut Sam hopes that you write that you are his son, and that Ava is hanging upside down in her cave in SC when she is not writing the book about Sam. He wants to be pay in advance, $1,000,000.00. Take it or leave it. He wants Tom Crush to play him.

You're really being unreasonable. Nobody pays that much for a first book. Fine, we'll just cross you out and you'll get nothing. You won't even get a free copy.

Next Christmas, you will be receiving the same gift that you received last year, a bag of my raindeer manure, if you keep insulting my friend Sam and all his friends.

Poor Jeff has to spend half the night deleting all your posts again. I'm going to suggest he gets a raise.
