Mucinex seems to help with a cold, but it is expensive. I found an Alka-seltzer brand that had the same medicine in it but it was only $4 at Wal-Mart.

In recent years I didn’t like the little ketchup packages very much because I wanted to be able to dip my fries into the ketchup. Over the last few months I have noticed that a couple of restaurants, like Chick Fil-A, have .99 oz Heinz packages designed for dipping. I also really like the waffle fries at Chick Fil-A.
Last night I took back $199 of stuff to Wal-Mart that I had bought on the Gray Thursday, the day before Black Friday. I checked their return policy, and it was still good for up to 15 days after Christmas.
I bought more than I needed on Gray Thursday because I wanted to evaluate a couple of cheap seven inch tablets, for which they charged me more than the advertised price on both. I never opened the tablets because I also bought a Microsoft Surface for $200 on Black Friday. I didn’t really need any more tablets since I already have an iPad 4, but I wanted to get my hands on some other tablets to see what they were like.

I mistakenly thought that the Columbus, Indiana Commons Mall had reopened. From what I could tell from the outside, it appears to have been converted to an office building with restaurants and shops all along the outside on the first floor. I am not sure if there are shops on the inside, but it looked like there is still some sort of play area for kids. The Sears store is still there in a separate building, and it appears to have never closed down.
This mall first opened over 41 years when I was just a kid. I have fond memories of going to that mall.
