You could only get the packages with two large cookies locally. Talk about not fair!! Those little cookies were good (we got some one time when a case fell off a pallet and smashed - then the employees got them and someone gave a pack to my husband).
That was when the Lay's plant was there. They made Grandma's Cookies. I knew a few folks who worked there and almost everything they made was shipped out west and almost everything made in Texas was shipped here.

Obama bin Laden...you talk about ignorance...your posts get more and more ignorant each time you respond.....amazing with all the schooling you talk about and all the money you make you still have not learned much...Thank goodness most do not agree with your thoughts as if they did it sure would be a scary place. I hope that the rude attacks at this point will cease and that one can stay focus on the discussion which is the Marketplace.

Thank you Dawn for your post about the liquor licences I had no idea such was the case...sounds like it will be difficult for any resteraunt to go in at this point...A lot of resteraunts make a lot of money from alcoholic drinks.

Default Envi bricks in Selinsgrove

Thanks for the info Dawne, but I have received 2 emails from "barefoot" confirming they do manufacture condensed saw dust bricks in Selinsgrove, PA. They apparently purchased equipment from "Bio Bricks" and now call them "Envi[ronmental] Blocks", they said they don't sell to the public and are open to new distributors in PA but that their big demand is in the New England states, PA isn't particularly interested in the blocks because of cheap coal in the region they say. The blocks are awesome, but pricy, plan to keep them for emergencies only.

I see that PetSmart is now hiring - there was an ad in the paper recently.

My hubby got a free burger email from Red Robin for his birthday, so we'll be going there again in the next two weeks.

Anyone been to Dick's Sporting Goods yet? I understand they opened over the weekend.

Yes, we've been to a Dick's Sporting Goods in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.

I have an acquaintance who says she doesn't like our new Target. She says she prefers the one in Harrisburg. I haven't been in that one so I can't compare, but I guess stores are different in different locations.
