"Beware the hobby that eats."

Benjamin Franklin


First time I've seen this particular quote of his! It fell under the heading of 'Food'. I just can't imagine what it would be like to be a chef or worse....a pastry chef!!!!!! I'm SO glad I don't have a job that requires me to taste or eat!!! But, he's just talking hobbies - not livelihoods. It's like the food ladies at Sam's, going from station to station is almost like a hobby for some people it seems. Yes, it can get a person into trouble pretty quickly. All I can offer here is my eternal gratitude for SP and all I've learned from this site. All the SP friends that have helped me reach goal and STAY there. I know now, I never could've done it alone. Thank you so much!!


Very late, need to close up shop for today.

    Oh yes . . . Costco is the same way with the food stations. On Saturday getting thru the aisles is like navigating a mine field!

Fortunately, like you, I have learned that it's just not worth eating the "junk food" and that's generally what the samples are!

HUGS and smiles. Here's to a great Wednesday.
