    soda machine: cartridges are "unavailable" at Wawa.
    sodas at Publix: i grabbed the last of Coke Zero on the shelf

    THe length of time it takes to get my Amazon orders is starting to get really annoying.
    When you jam people up for telling you what they see then you have made a major wrong turn...at least be better than that...your ancestors often managed. .

    Depending on the product I am now doing my best to lay in at least a six month supply, a year is better. Between the inflation and the lack of availability, which compound each other, this is the smart play.

    Supply shortages in Britain are blamed on Brexit, at least by Remainers. If it happened after Brexit it was caused by Brexit. post hoc ergo propter hoc. moonie will tell you.

    Going the other way my wife found sponges of the size I like at Kroger for the first time in over a year, she also shops Walmart and Safeway...they have not been there either. She also found Kellogg's bran buds that had been out for months.

    Obviously nobody has told you that the big fear now is stagflation.

    I make up my own mind, and that does not conflict with my post.

    Are you having an off day today?
