Nicely put Bob!  Smiley Happy

 

It brings to mind the UK legal term for food additives, "nature identical" sounds so much nicer to consumers than what are known as "artificial ingredients" in the U.S.

Re: Question about Abe's of Maine retailer

"And it's not located in Maine."

 

If I remember correctly at its very beginning it was located in Maine or the owner was from Maine? I remember doing some business with them in 1980 or very early '80's.  They were just as bad then and haven't changed.  My recommendation is to avoid doing any business with Abe's of Maine. No matter where it is located.

And it's not located in Maine. Reminds me of what's been said about the Holy Roman Empire: It wasn't holy; it wasn't Roman; and it wasn't an empire.


Hah! I got to say exactly this at Sunday School last week. Most people have no idea what it actually refers to, which were some powerful Germanic kings mucking around in Italy.

However, it was the only game in town.  Abe's is not, many more better stores to patronize.

In feudal Europe, there was always more than one game in town. Sometimes they even had more than one Pope.
