But I like PBJ's and Chicken Pot Pies.  Both are still a regular part of my diet.

Of my local grocery stores the Kroger house brand Strawberry Preserves has far more fruit than Smucker's.

And I haven''t found Banquet Pot Pie, Marie Calender are alright, but I grew up liking Banquet that Mom used to get.

We tend to like what we grew up eating.

Well Charlie we like to make our own jam, if you put as much sugar in as fruit it stays good for Months, but to get back to the taxes, it looks possible (not likely) that VAT will be reduced for sanitary towels and tampons here in jolly England. How's that in US of A?
We don't pay VAT on meds.

Sorry, not familiar with the term VAT.


At this point I spin-off topic and rambled on.   Once pointed out what I had done I came back and cut that all out and created a new thread where it belonged in the Food section.

Take Care





EDITED - Cut out off topic and created a new thread in Food section "Freezer Jam" - Charlie B53 - Moderator - 3/20/2016

OOops!   I easily get carried away and my attention diverts.  I ramble when I should spin-off and start a new thread.

I apologise and will try not to repeat this error.

Taxes.

My home state of Washington dropped sales tax on 'foodstuffs'.  People attempted to extend that to ALL foods but the State refused such that most all 'prepared' foods remained taxed so all fast food remains taxed.  There is an on going argument over the ready-to-eat items in the grocery stores.

Here in Missouri I honesty haven't paid any attention.  MO has a personal Income Tax.  WA did not, having higher tax rates on most everything else.

MO has a Personal Property Tax on all Vehicles, boats, motors, trailers, trucks, tractors, farm equip, etc..

Wa has an Excise Tax only on those vehicles that require a license plate, and tires.

Both states have differing taxes of fuels.

It keeps the accountants busy sorting out the numbers, especially around Income Tax time.
