I went shopping on a busy Saturday at Fairway Market. While I was after a 2" cut of steak, I thought it would be interesting to see how they handled the mass volume. Despite the crowds, there was very little waiting anywhere in the store.
I stopped at the bakery department and helped myself to some of their mini-bagels. I just love their size and especially the ones slathered in poppy seed. Next, to the counter to order a rye bread sliced. One person ahead of me, but another clerk popped his head around and asked me what I wanted. I forgot to specify seeded, so of course that was his next question.

2010 Chevrolet Equinox
As American consumers learn to do more with less, the 2010 Chevrolet Equinox crossover makes economic sense.
It has more room than a midsize sedan but comparable pricing and fuel economy. The standard model of Equinox has an EPA fuel economy rating of 32 mpg on the highway from a sophisticated four-cylinder engine. That's one mpg less than the Malibu sedan — and a notable accomplishment for any vehicle that weighs close to two tons with a couple of passengers.

My eldest son is driving now. And with no fanfare or photos to record the moment, he took his younger brother and sister to school.
