I went to the super market last week...........

and there was a sign in the produce department, near the bananas. It read: "Do not break the banana bunches apart". Now there were no less than 6 bananas in each bunch. I want only 3 bananas, I broke a bunch. I'm not paying for what I don't want.

When I was a kid, you could break a bunch of grapes & take the amount you wanted. Now they package them in bags usually weighing 2 lbs. I've taken a bag found a produce worker & told him I want only 1/2 lb. He did it, but he wasn't happy.

Going in for cataract surgery on Thursday, can't believe......

how very serious they are about infection(s). I had knee replacement about 3 1/2 years ago, and just had to show up. With cataract I've been informed to call if I have the slightest indication of a cold, open wounds, and to shower the day before and the day of surgery with an anti bacterial soap. Also use no lotions. And I started using an anti-inflammatory eyedrop (4 times a day) this past Thursday, I understand the use of that.

I'm not complaining, it's just a world of difference in 3 years, and it's the same hospital system
