Yes indeed We are in McDonald's in Arbroath again. Went from Brechin to Forfar to buy cigs Then from Forfar to Arbroath for coffee Yay for us. Now, the cigs in Brechin would have cost me £10 In Forfar they were £9.50 Thus saving £0.50 But Brechin To Forfar, Forfar to Arboath, Arbroath to Montrose and Montrose to Brechin adds up to about 40 miles so about £6 in fuel and of course £4 for 2 coffees Why did I not just get my cigs in Brechin Because this is more fun Yay for us

@JimBo452020 Yeah but that was before they added taxes no? Or were there excise duties then too?

Of course you go there because you like. With the cost of gasoline it's not worth driving 40 miles to save £0.50.

It's not. But I like going out on the bikes That's why we have them Anyway, more expensive petrol hasn't really bothered us. Nor has any of these price increases. We may feel the pinch in the winter. But I doubt it

@JimBo452020 The price of petrol and the price of food is not bothering us... I fear the rise in price of natural gas and electricity. This is going to cost a fortune to heat the house.

Sometimes it's all about the fun rather than the money.

Haha, a pack of Marlboro's are 8 dollars and 11 cents here but after all the state and country taxes its well over 10 dollars but believe you can get a pack at smoke shop for 10 even. I know most do not care about those but even with things like buying bread, whats the point of shopping around. Who cares if bread is 25 cents less and plus tuna will be a 1 dollar more at that store than the one close to your home and then you wasted all that gas to get there. At this point its like just go to the closest one and deal with what ever prices they come up with and this is why our economy is rigged.

This is not fair. Now that I know the sort of eye candy that appears here that you have alluded to, you have not posted any 'observations.' Please refrain from posting about this burger joint without the meat!

I bet it was more fun. Had yourself a little adventure. Thursday we were in a supermarket in Pennsylvania and I asked hubby if he wanted Twinings tea as he was low on it. It was on sale 2/$4. He told me no. Then yesterday we go shopping here to a Russian store and he grabs the same tea that here costs $3.89. Why do that?
