God greets Mother Teresa at the Pearly Gates.
"Thou be hungry, Mother Teresa?" saith God.
"I could eat," Mother Teresa replies. So God opens a can
of tuna and reaches for a chunk of rye bread and they share it.
While eating this humble meal, Mother Teresa looks down into Hell
and sees the inhabitants devouring huge steaks, lobsters, pheasants,
pastries and fine wines. Curious, but deeply trusting, Mother Teresa
The next day God again invites Mother Teresa to join him for a
meal. Again, it is tuna and rye bread. Once again looking down, Mother
Teresa can see the denizens of Hell enjoying caviar, champagne, lamb,
truffles and chocolates. Still Mother Teresa says nothing.
The following day, mealtime arrives and another can of tuna is
opened. Mother Teresa can contain herself no longer.
Meekly, she says: "God, I am grateful to be in heaven with you
as a reward for the pious, obedient life I led. But here in heaven all I get to eat is tuna
and a piece of rye bread and in the Other Place they eat like emperors
and kings! Forgive me, O God, but I just don't understand..."
God sighs. "Let's be honest, Mother Teresa," he says.
"For just two people, does it pay to cook?

Did you know that bread
is delivered fresh to the stores five days a week?
Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and
Saturday. And each day has a different color twist tie. They are:
- Monday - Blue
- Tuesday - Green
- Thursday - Red
- Friday - White
- Saturday - Yellow
I thought this was interesting.
I looked in the grocery store and the bread wrappers do have different
colored twist ties, and even the ones with the plastic clips have
different colors. You learn something new everyday!!
So today being Thursday, I wanted a
red twist tie -- not white which is Friday (almost a week old)?
The colors go alphabetically
Blue - Green - Red - White-Yellow, Monday thru Saturday. Very easy to
remember. But I put a post-it note in my wallet when I first found out
about this so I would not forget. Enjoy fresh bread with the right
color on the day you are shopping.
