Opening Arguments

I skipped breakfast, OK?

Food in the news today. It's bad at a bakery:

Aunt Millie's confirmed Thursday the company will lay off 33 people from its Fort Wayne plant effective May 14.

According to Melissa Dunning at Perfection Bakeries, two shifts are also being eliminated.  Dunning said the layoff is due to a decline in bread sales.

The economy is so bad people are cutting back on bread? Come on, people, get those workers back on the job. Millie's makes good stuff. Now, lettuce consider Arizona, which, perhaps getting even for all the immigration-law backlash, is trying to kill people in 23 states (including Indiana) with romaine contaiminated with E. coli. I don't like romaine that much -- it sort of seems like unfinished lettuce, you know, all the defects still left in? But if you're going to have a Caesar, iceberg or bibb won't do. My sister had a cat once that, believe it or not, like lettuce, but it would only eat romaine.

And, finally, police are having their third annual Cop on A Rooftop Special Olympics fund-raiser at -- where else? -- Dunkin' Donuts. It's reassuring that police can have a sense of humor about one of their longest-running stereotypes. And it's not at a Krispy Kreeme, where the donuts seem too sweet to me. Oh, great coffee at DD, by the way, and they sell it at the supermarket now, too. I recommend the dark blend.

I think if there's ANY "decline" in BREAD sales, it's their OWN brand, because shelves at Krogers say otherwise.

Store (and value) brands have been kicking the NAME brands to the curb for some time now.
They taste JUST as good, and work well out of the toaster or even as French Toast (now called PATRIOT TOAST in our house...take THAT, Napoleon's descendants...LOL)

Aside from those local German or Polish-owned pastery shops, Dunkin' is still pretty darn good.

Never did like Krispy Kreme.
First off, bad spelling.
Next...too small.

I'll have to try that coffee,too.
(after I finish MY breakfast of cold pizza...mmmmmm)

my cat, milo, sure did love his romaine...he liked bacon, too. I used to tell him, if he just liked tomatoes, I would make him a BLT...that cat ate better than I did....

Ah-ha. I've learned I can often goad brother Larry into commenting by doing a post about guns, and now I know which of your buttons to push, too. So let's try this little experiment: A cat with a gun walks into a bar. "Where's the varmit," he demands, "who shot my paw?"

gee, if my cats get guns, I'm moving out.....
