Dangers And Positives Of Drinking

For a second, wondered if I was drunk while driving home tonight. That's because I couldn't believe what I was seeing, which somtimes can occur if you've been drinking. Just one of the many reasons why folks should not drive when they've had too much to drink.

To my point ... as I made the exit to come home tonight, I saw that the price at the Shell station was $1.96. I'm not kidding. Just reading that I bet you're wondering if you're drunk. When I left the office in Lee's Summit, prices out there and through Raytown were $2.08-$2.09. Some "Letters to the Editor" predict gas prices will drop to around $1.80 about a week before the November election. My hope is that the prices will fall even lower than that.

By the way, a recent study published in the Journal of Labor Research concluded that people who drink earn more money than those who don't. You read that right. I promise, you are not drunk. At least as far as I can tell. The study results indicate drinkers earn 10 percent to 14 percent more than those on the wagon.

Here I was thinking that shot of scotch in the morning and margarita at lunch was just to help take the edge off of each day. With all that extra moola, my thought is to spring for the next round!

Can you send those gas prices out this way?!?! I saw $2.72 on the way home tonight. In the south end of town (out of my way) it was $2.69. My mom saw $2.18 in Ft. Worth. We NEED lower gas prices....ski season is coming up!!

THat (2nd part of post) is a good reason to start your day with a little 'kick' of something!

It was up to $1.99 today, though, at the Shell. Still $2.08-$2.09 in Raytown.

It's a $1.99 almost everywhere here now, with a few spots at $1.98. On my commute each morning, I bet I pass at least 15 service stations.
