    The thread is very different for me based up seasons because of our garden.
    In the summer time I eat an insane amount of lettuce and green beans.

    But all in all:
    Above: bourbon, steaks, water, vitamins, clone cones
    Below: milk, non breaded chicken, apples

    Haven't tried it. I stay pretty true to Cedar Ridge. Will have to check it out, Hy-Vee?

    In our household we under use bottled water. At home we drink tap water. If we go somewhere we fill a water bottle we don't take a bottle of water. We have a case of bottled water in the garage that is over a year old. It mostly gets hit when the neighbor kids are over.

    We overuse toilet paper. I don't understand why you need to make a giant muff around your hand to cleanse yourself when all you did was take a leak.

    I trend I've noticed recently: People are replacing commas with dashes in situations where, in most cases, a comma will suffice. Too many dashes becomes distracting or intrusive.

    ***Admission: I use a LOT of dashes (and ellipses) on CF, so I'm guilty, too. But I sometimes approach message-boarding as conversational as much as written communication.

    Above: canned waster, A1 (never on steak of course), coffee, hot sauce. Cavender’s.

    Nationally, I’d say beer, but living in NE IA I’m probably below the local average.

    Below: sugared pop, milk, cereal

    Commas are often a mystery to me. I know about the separating a list of items. But sometimes I'm not sure if one goes in what feels like a natural break in a long sentence, or not. (Like that one - two words back). In those cases I'll cheat and throw in the dash.

    Probably wrong but I do it.

    The vixen is the same. I've told her that they fill water bottles and so on right out of the tap, and even though she knows this, she still refuses.

    Above: Tap water, meat, hot sauce, cheese, bourbon, yogurt, pickles, bananas.

    Below: Bottled water, anything from a gas station, fast food (couple times a year), paper towels.

    Side note: You heathens who drink bottled water should invest in a reverse osmosis system!

    Also, you way over consume Hawkeye stuff.

    Please note that consuming any Hawkeye stuff is too much Hawkeye stuff.

    Above: Garlic. If it calls for 2 cloves, we put in 2 full heads (or whatever you call the bunch).

    Below: Fruits and Veggies.

    Ever since I got a Vitamix last Christmas, I'd say that I am above average on my consumption of Fruits and Veggies. Also, I consume a lot of my news from alternative media outlets (big fan of The Hill.TV)
    Below: Fish, CNN-FOX-MSNBC-ABC-CBS-NBC News

    This line is great, and so true - Wisconsin influence made it's way across the river.

    I consume an insane amount of cough drops when I am sick. Like a bag of them a day.

    Well my daughter's in her first year at ISU, so in terms of spending, I'm consuming a lot more Cyclone stuff than Hawkeye stuff these days.
