Favorite things you've ever bought from an ALDI supermarket

1. A new pillow (I'm sleeping better than I have in years)
2. Jelly-filled Christmas treats (they stopped carrying them about 3 years ago, though)
3. Take and bake pizza (not the best pizza to be had but decent enough and at a great price)
4. Frozen shrimp
5. Mango slices (we get them every time we have money for them)
6. Milk
7. Asparagus-stuffed chicken breasts
8. Mochi ice cream
9. Winking Owl wine
10. Summit Ginger Beer

11. Uncured Bavarian Bratwurst

The only way to improve them would be to make them out of the traditional veal, but then I couldn't afford them.

This particular thread has become very slow to load for me over the past several days. Anyone else experiencing this? I'm not having the same issue with other SDMB threads.

Never mind, I just saw the ATMB thread about board slowness and timeouts. So it's not only this thread, though this thread does tend to induce the timeout for me more than most other threads.

I agree. This particular thread is slower than any of the others.

Yes, I think it's because this thread contains so many posts.

With this particular thread game ... there's no harm in simply starting a new thread as a continuation. Maybe have a 500-page ground rule or something.

I've wondered if the reason this thread always seems slow to load, is its size. I'd have no objection to starting a new one.

"Baker's Dozen II: Listing Boogaloo," perhaps?

Size isn't everything. So I've heard.

I can't believe in this day and age that a thread of 70 some thousand posts of extremely limited text only messages would be any issue at all. Why would it?

I mean, maybe it would be an issue for the Apollo 11 guidance computer, but...

Double post.

OK. Maybe I'm wrong.

Good call, Elendil’s Heir. I’ll ask the mods to close this one out.

See y’all over on the new thread!
