  4. Damn bustup, good eye. But look how skinny the people in the photo are. Maybe they lose weight carrying all that sugar home.

  5. yeah, that's true. come to think of it, I've never seen a fat hummingbird either. Maybe we're onto something here, a kind of inverted South Beach diet thing...

  6. I have some photographs of the inside of a grocery store in flint in the 70's. I would love to post them here. How can I do that? The photos show the cashier and my mom shopping.
