Carol, I've talked about artificial sweeteners often on this site. Until I hear some actual proof of diet soda causing harm, I'm all for them. So far, all I've ever been able to find is that when rats consume 20,000 times the amount of a certain artificial sweetener that a human does in one day, they develop enlarged hypothalamusses (sp?). Or something like that. It's like the GMO scares. Monsters under the bed.

At least we know via scientific evidence that the real thing (sugar) causes tooth decay and diabetes.

Hello again, AKA.  No, I'm not stalking you!  Just saw your list of new restrictions for Wisconsin and thought I'd mention my sister lives in Lake Geneva (not sure where you are) and is a "social butterfly".  These new rules are driving her nuts... worse than me, if that's possible. 
By the way, here's some pics of a German Shepherd I had several years ago.  I know you're a Shepherd fan.  Thought you might like to see what he did one day.  We didn't teach him that.  He just did it.

I've seen those cute little 7 ounce cans of 7-UP in the stores.  I think Budweiser used to sell them by the 8 pack as well.

I wouldn't buy the little cans because on a cost per oz basis, they are a terrible deal. 

You're paying for the packaging. 

Plus, I only buy the store brands and they only come in 2 liter bottles and 12 oz cans. 

If the store brands would do the 16 oz plastic bottles in six-packs like the major brands do, I'd probably start getting those.

Aka, well, OshKosh B'gosh!  Lake Winnebago looks like a beautiful lake.  Big, too.

B'gosh!  Funny you should mention that!  The wife worked at B'gosh before getting her nursing license.

Lake Winnebago?   We rarely go over that way.  It is big, 10 miles across and 30 miles long.

Win·ne·ba·go
/ˌwinəˈbāɡō/
Origin
Algonquian, literally ‘person of the dirty water’, referring to the muddy Fox River.

We live on a channel that leads to the lower Fox River. These up river lakes and rivers are much calmer, cleaner and just closer to home.  All of this water helped to attract me to this area...and there is the little woman too! Embarrassed



And, don't even get me started with pictures of Leah! Wink
