Guess what happened today? No, Conagra Foods didn't offer me a job baking all day because I endorsed their flour, Montana Sapphire; our local supermarket turned into a Giant Eagle and it has its grand opening today. I stopped in on the way back from daycare because it would make me even more late for work.

I love supermarkets. Trish and I always check out the local supermarket whenever we visit a new place (Paris, Lyon, Amsterdam, LaGrande, Oregon). Even huge chain supermarkets can't help but reflect local aspects of the community in which they're placed. Today, for the grand opening our local Giant Eagle is having a big presentation for the press and all kinds of fancy activities. Their produce section is greatly expanded compared to the last store that occupied that spot and they even have rehired the surly Somalian cashiers. It's just like home again.
