Tabloid and candy free checkout lane at Shaws

I gots to remember to snap a pic the next time I visit a Shaw's supermarket. They have one checkout lane with a sign over it saying, "Tabloid and Candy Free Lane." I can't help wondering how that came about.

I guess this lane is for parents who can't say no to their kids when the kids see candy. Are the tabloids that scary? This isn't England where tabloids have topless women on the back cover. Or front cover. Tits & bum!

Mined salt vs sea salt

The mined salt was deposited by ancient seas, right? So what's the difference?

Bread in a can.

I can see how New England brown bread might have been appealing in the days when most houses had no insulation, no central heating and the only way to keep warm in winter was by consuming as many calories as possible. People ate dense, lard-based puddings every day if they could afford to.

I imagine home-made brown bread could be delicious just as home-made Indian pudding is delicious.

But bread from a can? I know my mom occasionally served it to us when we were kids and I remember liking it. I don't think I'd eat canned bread these days. I haven't noticed it in any supermarket in years, not that I've been seeking it. The can in the pic has an expiration date of 1992.
