1. Do you shop locally?

2. How much shopping do you do online?

3. Do you antique, thrift shop, or go to flea markets or yard sales?

You can tell who eats what chips by their looks, healthier chip eaters stand out in a crowd, Lol!

<<That's my point. You eat them for taste, not nutrition. If you were eating purely for nutrition, you'd be eating homemade kale chips instead of potato chips.

Yes, ITA RG but PKA was saying that they were of better quality and better cooking methods than the a mass marketed chip, like Lays. >>

Right, that's what I said I believe....so why do you keep bringing nutrition into the mix when I have specificaly said multiple times now that I am not using them as an example of nutrition.  I have said numerous times now that "I" have found things with quality ingredients and better cooking methods to taste better.

Okay. Since you've never eaten them, why are you arguing that fact?

Oh I WOULD eat them, no doubt. I just wondered what PKA's back up would be for saying they are better quality than a mass marketed chip like Lays.

I have that machine.  That's the only sewing machine I have ever had.  My Mom bought it before she was married, which was in 1955.

When the weather is hot and humid, I wear dresses nearly every day. I think they're more comfortable than shorts and a top. I actually bought another casual maxi dress today. In petite sizing w/wedges, they really do make me look taller and I love how they can be dressed up or down. 

LOVE Maxi dresses. Not warm enough here for them yet but I was thinking of wearing some type of heel when we go out tomorrow night with friends drinking/eating but the majority of my friends are shorter than me (the girls) so I feel like I would be towering over them. lol.

I frequently forget to eat when I'm home alone all day and particularly busy. It just isn't a priority. I live for my family. I live for my friends. I live for my faith. I do not live to eat. I eat to live. t Perhaps that is why I'm not fan of junk food. I really don't like the way it makes me feel.&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;Thardy--beautiful dress.

Didn't think about restaurants until others did.  Much prefer lacal restaruants over chains.  My favorite restaurant is a Mexican/Italian place.
