BHK got me a 2 new bathing suits - long-knee Hawaiian-style jams, one in blue print, the other red. I have never before owned more than one bathing suit... This is what marriage does to a fellow.

I can dig it.

Bare Food Cupboards More Common in So. Md. - Southern Maryland Headline News

Most surprising and saddening to me was the following -

Brenda DiCarlo of the Southern Maryland Food Bank said she has noticed people making between $30,000 and $50,000 a year having to rely on grocery assistance from their local food pantries. Her statistics show the number of families seeking assistance has topped 10,000 this year, and that is only for the pantries she supplies.

“There’s been a huge increase…our pantries have had a 40 percent increase in new families needing food, and a 50 percent increase for returning families…there just isn’t enough money to put gas in the car and keep the lights on…a lot of people now just can’t make ends meet.”

DiCarlo’s first recommendation to people is that they call the Department of Social Services. Those who do not qualify for food stamps can still get a complete listing of pantries and programs in their area.
