When you go to buy bread in the grocery store, have you ever wondered which is the freshest, so you "squeeze" for freshness or softness. Did you know that bread is delivered fresh to the stores five days a week?



Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

Each day has a different color twist tie.



They are:

Monday - Blue Tuesday - Green Thursday - Red Friday - White - Saturday - Yellow So if today was Thursday, you would want red twist tie - not white which is Fridays (almost a week old)! The colors go alphabetically by color Blue - Green - Red - White - Yellow, Monday through Saturday. Very easy to remember. I thought this was interesting. I looked in the grocery store and the bread wrappers DO have different twist ties, and even the one with the plastic clips have different colors.



You learn something new everyday!!! Enjoy fresh bread when you buy bread with the right color on the day you are shopping.

Yah. I liked that. I'm keeping it in my "friends" folder..for future reference. Thanks! :)

Arthritis? WD-40 Spray and rub in

I'd feel too much like the tin man. I remember when they made shampoo with beer.
WD-40 containes solvants that are known skin irritants! I would NOT recomend that!
Coca Cola will also clean stains out of toilets, sinks and bathtubs. Pretty much any stain you've got, it'll strip it right off. AND THEY EXPECT ME TO DRINK IT????

Also, clear nail polish painted over insect bites will stop the itching and irritation. Grandma's old trick, it has yet to fail me.
