It's Back to School Sale time. Now is the time to stock up on lot's of paper, crayons, pencils, arts and craft items and everything else on the shelves. Also watch out for those wonderful Summer Clearance Sales to pick up the items you will need for next summer. Get larger sizes for the kids. We picked up lots of socks and underwear today.

Don't forget the manual pencil sharpener. I recently bought a new world globe. The countries have changed so much in the past few years, my old globe was just about worthless.

But didn't you know? We Golden Staters have to pay for all the miraculous work that the DOIT is doing to completely remediate all critical CA state systems in less time than it takes to scratch off a lottery ticket! Yessiree, I am proud to pay through the nose to make up for all the screw-ups in Sacramento. Proud...
