The book sorting moves along.
Here’s what went away as donations to the ISU Milner Library.
Their book sale will be coming in a month or so.
I backed the car as close into the back porch as the downspouts and drain tube allowed, then paced myself for several trips getting them into the car.
When I rang the bell at the Receiving ramp of the library, I told the woman who answered that we would need a cart.
She was gone a couple minutes, then came back with something flat and sturdy on wheels, and a muscular young man as helper.
Their spoken thank yous were many and sincere.
There’s still much to be done in this room.
I’m having a difficult time parting with stuffed animals.
There. are. too. many. Most are mine, not for sons!
However, I rewarded my morning’s efforts with a Mocha Bianca Chiller from Latte Time, along with a lunch of leftover chicken chili, and strawberries.
Eating commenced while reading articles in The Economist magazine.
I may never again think of baby food in the same way.
Mr Bennink took his lead from France, where his old firm, Danone, and its main rival, NestlÃ©, had found novel ways to grow. They put more effort into advertising the health benefits of baby foods. They innovated, introducing more consumer-friendly packaging and bottles and developing the â€œtoddler milksâ€ market for children aged one to three. And they convinced retailers that, properly marketed, baby food could draw high-spending younger adults into their stores. As a result, the French market has been growing by more than 8% a year for the best part of a decade, and French babies now consume twice as much baby food per head as their peers in Britainâ€”and 40% more than Americans.
