    Not only are prices going up, package size is shrinking.

    If you think products at the grocery store are shrinking, don't worry -- you're not crazy. To avoid complaints of rising prices, many companies are simply reducing the amount of the product you're getting. This maintains the appearance that prices are remaining steady.

    I had a bad dream the other night, woke up, and thought I was in 1979 again. Wait a minute... maybe it is 1979 again... the printing presses are running full blast in DC.

    Hmmmm....

    Andrea,

    I was!

    Still, I recall the economic climate as it affected my father's business.

    Hope it changes for the better soon.

    Then again, you never know.

    Bon dia.

    i remember in the 70s (dunno the yr) my mother put horsemeat on the table.
    (steak was too expensive)
    we looked at her in horror as she told us what it was.

    I agree with Purestone . . . our friends south of the 49th actually have it way better in terms of prices. For example, we pay $5.21 CDN per US gallon ($1.38 per litre) of gas . . . I spend $90 to fill my car. A case of 24 Budweiser beer costs $38.00 (a universal price measure I believe) . . . 4 litres of milk costs $3.99 . . .

    Pick your poison . . . better prices and poorer health care or higher prices and just plain poor healthcare :-) At least you have 2 political parties that stand firm on what they stand for . . . we are heading to the polls for 3 times?? in 7 years??? Can't tell one political party from the other . . .

    At least we know the milk arrives at Lings every Thursday in Aruba . . . amen!

    Michael
