To the UnVenter that says silver coins are the only coins worth bending over for, I'm happy to pick up all of your missed blessings! You can't have a nickel, dime, quarter, so forth and so on without pennies first.
Bending over is worth as much for its own sake, for your own health, as the penny is worth. So it's a two-fer!
Thank you for being a elderly caregiver.
Elderly caregiver, hope there a fewer tough days for you. Take care of yourself! I'm praying for you!

Thanks to all the lazy people who don't pick up pennies my vacation fund jar fills up a lot faster.
As you grow older you need to eat less and exercise more and you will lose weight and live longer!!!
I was raised in a dysfunctional family, with addicts and alcoholics. trust me when I say none of us turned out the way we have because of a spanking. There is a huge difference between spanking and abuse. Some don't learn with a spanking and time out and talking don't work for some either. Love them and do your best.
I find that eating fruits and vegetables mainly and drinking lots of water keeps your weight down. You aren't suffering with hunger either..
And here is the solution to your salami problem. Trader Joe's has Italian, dried salami in a stick, that you slice yourself. It is from and SFO comapany. I grew up in SFO so consider myself a good judge of good salami...and it is super. Make the trip to any TJ's and bring an insulated shopping bag. You will be so glad you did when you see what they sell. (I do not work for TJ's.)
Enough with the sandwiches already!!
Interesting how any unvent that disagrees with "how things used to be," gets voted to the bottom. And, the unvent about bars being worse than spanking, that's true...in today's bars, not the old ones.
Go ahead and eat salty Spam--I'll take real country-cured ham freshly sliced any day.
Do butcher shops sell salami?
the "salami" in a small log might be Summer Sausage? Available everywhere. Delicious. Keeps forever.
Umm, Brunswick stew! I wish Castleberry hadn't stopped selling it last year. I also have missed the okra pickles, recently discontinued too. And after five and ten years I *still* miss CoCoWheats and Postum!
