    Back in the USSR? Folsom Prison Blues?

    I would add Winco to the mix if it were closer. Maybe they'll open a store around here eventually. Also, Winco is employee-owned, if I'm not mistaken--big plus!

    Yea, that includes some household supplies, and no booze. I'm trying to limit perishable items destined to perish, but it may be a losing cause. Exotic ingredients are my downfall.
