You've got to see what Patty bought for $11 this week.

I am featuring once a week a lady who is buying $11 worth of items to donate to the homeless shelters or foodbanks.  What this lady can buy for $11 is marvellous.  Here is week five's items  I think it is on the second post.  She certainly knows how to use coupons, I wish I could do as well.

Star mentioned on yesterdays post I am "nesting" and I think she is right.  When you are in the house more due to the cold weather, I think it gives you more time to plan.  Dh and I are going to spend some time in the attic today.  We have to get some work done before the guy comes to install the banisters.  I can actually see a glimmer of light at the end of the tunnel with this attic.  There is still a lot to do, but it is all coming together.  I will take some photos when we get some more work done.

The Toronto Transit Commission is in the headlines AGAIN, this time a bus driver is caught texting while driving a bus full of people!!  It's against the law to text while driving for everyone, but what makes it worse he is putting a bus load of people at risk...........The TTC is always in trouble with the general public.  The last public relations nightmare for them was when someone took a photo of an employee asleep on the job.  That guy has since passed away.........

All I know is whenever the TTC employee's do something stupid, out pops the Union Guy spouting a whole lot of tripe, I have never seen a man talk a whole lot of nothing for a long period of time.......but hey that's another story for another time!!

Texting whilst driving seems to be catching on... I dread to think of the accidents to come.

That lady can really shop. I wish I could use coupons like her too. She is doing an awesome job for foodbanks. Hugs

Thank you for sharing Patty's story with us, Gill. She is a blessing to so many.

I may have to mimic her!

My brother texts while driving his car all the time and it bugs me something awful when I'm in the car with him. If the bus driver did it, it would bother me even more because the buses I ride are always packed and there are always so many of us standing!!!

That is a wonderful thing she is doing. As for the texting, it's becoming an epidemic but you don't expect to hear that bus drivers are doing it, where's the common sense?
