Gotta love Publix

The employees at my local Publix supermarket always seem to give just that little bit more in their service.

Today, I ordered a half-sub and the man in the Deli said - for a $1.35 more, I could get the whole-sub (on sale).  I said “why not, it’ll be tomorrow’s lunch”.  And then he extra-wrapped the “tomorrow’s half” in plastic wrap, saying “just keeping it fresh for you tomorrow”.

Then, when I went to my van to load the groceries, I noticed a Publix employee parked at an odd angle in the space next to mine.  (He had his Publix badge & apron on)  Wondered what that was all about.  Well, it turns out he positioned his van so he could give a jump-start to someone’s dead battery.

What good things!
I think if we keep our eyes open, we will see good things happening all around.

PBS Sewing Shows

For those of you whose PBS stations no longer carry “Sewing With Nancy”, no problem!  You can watch her shows online at Wisconsin Public Television

SewingWithNancyNancy’s most current shows (52 of them) are available.  Streaming.  And FREE!  If you’re not in the US, I’m sure you can watch them on the internet, too.

Visit Nancy’s blog, too --   She has a lot of things to offer.  Always learn something from her programs.

On TV, I found “Sewing with Nancy”, Fons & Porter and Donna Dewbury on another PBS station that my cable company offers.  It’s called “PBS Create”.  It comes with my basic cable. 

Go to  and see if you have PBS Create in your area.  Lots of good programming.
