Stopped by Winn-Dixie, Spanish Springs, on the way home this afternoon, my favorite size of

Creamy Peanut Butter - Jif Peanut Butter

was out of stock, had to buy it the quart jar.

Noticed that the cereal's aisle had some bare spaces, what's up with that?

Tap water in Florida is notoriously unpalatable. I've been drinking (whatever passes for) spring water for over a decade. But I also haven't ever run low on it. I don't wait for emergencies to stock up.

Even the one-ply is gone.

Florida tap water my not be very good tasting but it is safe to drink. That is what is most important. Having said that......the water from my refrigerator water dispenser is the best tasting water to me......better than any bottled water out there.

This is " Insane " and quickly getting out of control. Panic is beginning to set in. All the cancellations, hoarding, elbow greetings, actually to me pretty pathetic the way some are trying to cope.

The " Drama " every minute from the media is Craaaaaaaaazy. Calm Down people ! Shaking my head.

Do you know what many people do when the virus threat is over? They return all the extra items they hoarded to the store. I was told by someone who works for Publix that people have tried to return ice after a hurricane. I'm serious.

I was looking for some Bush's Baked Beans. The closest I could find, on all of those empty shelves, was Stokely Van Camps "Vegetarian" Baked Beans. Well let me tell ya, they weren't vegetarian after I got done with them, no siree Bob.

Each roll has 425 sheets of toilet paper
A case contains 12,750 sheets

Allowing 20 sheets of toilet paper per $hit during a 14-day quarantine
There are 637.5 $hit$ per case of toilet paper
Or that is 45.5 $hit$ per day for 14-days

So, if a family of 4 buys 4-cases of toilet paper from Costco to last them 14-days using 20-sheets per $hit$ they would need to $hit 182 times each day in order to use all the toilet paper they purchased.

Let’s just calm down a little . . . . .
