    I am thinking mainly of the contamination issue. What is the
    potential issue? Salmonella? I don't remember, but I do remember
    that it is not something to play around with.

    I can only tell you what I observed... the oil got cloudy on the
    second day, so there was obviously an issue with decomposition. Never
    tried that again.

    They should be fully stocked with Christmas types gifts by this time,
    so chances are that there will be "something" you can't live without
    (I gar-un-tee).

    Thanks. As I thought, nothing I want to risk.

    It's from Spain. Similar looking bottle only it's wrapped into
    a pair of bottles. Extra virgin olive oil, Arbequina.

    Good idea, that way you won't forget anything.

    Yes. IF it makes it onto the list. Oddly enough, as I need the
    lists more, I seem to be making them less.

    Maybe you're developing a sense of adventure!

    What's really annoying? You make a list then forget to take it with you to
    the store. I've done that a few times. I can usually remember most on the
    list but always forget some things.

    Drives me crazy. I try to picture the list in my mind, and the
    truth is, having written it down kind of fixes it in my memory
    better, but I don't usually remember everything I needed.

    Forget it (no pun intended) if it's a list for a place like Lowe's.
    I walk through the door and whoosh, I forget what I'm there for.
    Appears there is science behind that, your mind clears itself when
    you go through a doorway, preparing for the unknown ahead.

    No, more likely I am either forgetting to do it, or I am (rather
    ironically) thinking I will remember. I think a sense of
    adventure, as in unplanned adventure, at the grocery store can be
    rather costly. It's also a way to accumulate a lot of staples
    that then sit on the shelves. (You can guess how I know that.)

    When I do that, I may walk up and down the aisles, which does seem
    to work.

    LOL! Yes, writing the list, even if one then forgets it, does help.
