Who's Keeping Score?

As I was fumbling around for today's post, I happened upon this terrific poster at, of all places, The Wall Street Journal.

Since I've suddenly and unexpectedly been summoned down to New York for the next week, I won't be blogging or visiting. Actually, it's been such a crazy few days around here, I didn't even get to visit you all either. I won't have my computer with me and I haven't gotten around to buying a MacBook yet so online communications will not be happening.

Have a GREAT week everyone and I'll "see" you all when I return. Louise

  7. I must say you have been on a posting roll the last couple of weeks and I've enjoyed it too. So much so I've done more reading than posting myself. lol! Hate to hear you have to go out of town for the whole week. The game food poster you found was great. I had no idea that avocados (71.4 million lbs.) were so popular. We ate tortilla chips for the game. I made slow cooked sloppy joes and used tortilla chips to dip it in. So I guess I helped make the 43.2 million lbs. for tortilla chips. "FunPost"

  14. 4.4 million is a lot of pizzas! I think avocados are the only thing in the graphic that I did eat last Sunday. Interesting.

Through this wide opened gate,
none came too early,
none returned too late.

Thanks for dropping in...Louise
