    You know I don’t really mind logging in now & them as I rarely have to do it.  But it makes no sense to reply to a post & the have to log in for the next one.  Sigh   :(

    Anyway, Black Friday still happens here but some stores say they are starting Black  Friday early & WM already has some things on sale.  I never go  to the  crazy sales  on Black Friday but I think if I happen to see something on sale that I don’t have to be at the doors at 3 AM for (which I would ever do anyway) I might be more inclined to buy it.

    Good evening everybody.  It was a nice day but I didn’t do much.

    Dropped off 2 coats for a winter coat drive, stopped by the library & picked up mail.

    Made the Candied Sweet potatoes & took them to the Pot Luck tonight.  I’m like Kathy & her meal tonight.  They were OK, but I remember them being better.  Didn’t seem sweet enough to  me.

    That was pretty much my day.

    Mari, I think you are referring to  creamer flavors by Coffeemate  & International Delight, right?  A lot of good flavors this time of year

    The Chai was/is a flavor f International House coffee  .  The ones that are instant & come in the little tin cans. (Not a creamer)

    I’ve Never seen Jello Pumpkin pudding or any pumpkin pudding for that matter

    Finished .That was a good one.  Started Sinister by Lisa Jackson.  A couple of pages in I realized I had read it before.  So now reading Iris Johansen’s The Perfect Witness.

    Going to the library later.

    I just noticed you said you put in 3 or 4 at a time?  You have to C&P one, click down from that one & put in the next one, etc;  Can’t do them all at the same time.

    These are from PB.  Seems to be working OK.  Are you going to the very bottom rt hand corner of the posted photo to move down for the next one.  Sometimes it’s hard to get just the right spot.  I’ve done it & had the posted photo disappear instead of moving down for another one.    Try again.

    So, good morning people. .  Sunny, the wind is gone but still cold.  It was 22º overnight & 34º at 9:30 this morning.

    Methodist Church is having a winter coat drive today.  Dropping off two at the Marina this afternoon & will pick up the mail while I am out.

    I have a lightweight (but warm) weatherproof jacket from Land’s End that I will keep. It’s the one I wear 90% of the time in cold weather.  A nice ward red wool jacket will donate.  Then I had a decision to make.  I have a heavy navy waterproof winter parka type jacket with a red fleece ling that you can zip out & wear as a separate light jacket.  That’s the coat I usually wear in really cold weather and/or snow.  Another really nice winter jacket, also a parka style but a little dressier than the navy one.  I never wear this one because I usually just grab the closet one which ends p being the Navy Parka.  Because I rarely wear it I was going to donate it but its such a pretty coat I was having a selfish time letting it go.  So I finally decided to donate the Navy coat instead & keep the other one.  Nothing wrong with the Navy one & they will be getting 2 coats in one.    I hope I don’t regret that decision the next time I reach for the old standby navy.

    Tonight is the TG Dinner pot luck here. They provide  turkey, mashed potatoes & Cranberry sauce.  Everything else is a pot luck dish.   I have sweet potatoes cooking for Candied Sweet Potatoes.

    Charlene, what kind of liquids are they offering you?

    At first I though Gee where is everybody this morning?  Then on a hunch I opened the Friday’s thread & yep there y’all were.  LOL

    Molly you can edit it if you want but probably no need since we all found each other anyway. :)

    I haven’t heard about stores being test markets but some products are available only in certain parts of the country.  I always assumed it was because they sold best there.

    Some are seasonal & some are  products that different food brands are trying to see how well they sell.  So you can call those test items but not necessarily for any particular store.  More for the brand.  For example a new flavor of Lay’s Potato Chips might show up everywhere but if they don’t sell well, they disappear from the shelves .  (And it always seems to be the ones I like.  LOL ) That could be a case of where you might find them in another area of the county as they sold better there than here

    I don’t drink coffee but I do like some of the International flavors.  Used to be there were 6 or 7 different flavors.  Now there are 2 or 3 & I don’t like any of them.  I always liked the Chai Tea one.  Can’t find that anymore around here
