Snag a Button

What do I miss from the states?

I have been asked what I miss, so I thought I'd turn it into a post...nope, this is not a cry to send me anything...it's way tooo expensive to do that...it's about $10 a pound!!! YIKES!

Things that I miss ...
---magazines in English!!!(I had no idea that I would even miss this...I wasn't a big mag. person!)
---brownies/cake mixes---just the ability to buy them would be nice.
---flavored decaf coffee
---vanilla---just found out they have this--it's just in powdered form not liquid...who knew there was such a thing??? Not me!
---Christian bookstores in English!!!(should have brought more books and less what??? hmmm...well, maybe should have paid more for the extra luggage-haha!).
---What is John's missing---the ability to get in the car and just go. He doesn't miss the car, just the ability to go somewhere quickly.

You don't miss peanut butter and Mexican food? We've found that food is such an important part of your culture that it's often one of the things you miss most.

Hang in there... We're proud of you!

Well, fortunately, we have about 2 full jars of pb left in this home...they were here from Americans bringing them. So, after we finish them, yes, we will miss it!!! We didn't do pb very often back home but since we don't have our fav. chicken nuggets here, we have to use more pb for lunches. We need more lunch ideas...do you have any? They have pb here but it's $6 for a very small jar!

Mexican food...we have found a few ways to make it, but we miss the abundance of tortilla chips. They have them here, but in smaller quantities.

After having dug to a depth of 10 feet last year, New York scientists found traces of copper wire dating back 100 years and came to the conclusion that their ancestors already had a telephone network more than 100 years ago.

Not to be outdone by the New Yorkers, in the weeks that followed, in California an archaeologist dug to a depth of 20 feet and, shortly after, headlines
in the LA Times newspaper read: California archaeologists have found traces of 200-year-old copper wire and have concluded that their ancestors already had
an advanced high-tech communications network a hundred years earlier than the New Yorkers.'

One week later, The Houston Chronicle, a local newspaper in Texas, reported the following: 'After digging as deep as 30 feet in his pasture near Alvin,
Brazoria County, Texas, Bubba Mitchell, a self-taught archaeologist and graduate of Texas A&M, reported that he found absolutely nothing. Bubba has therefore concluded that 300 years ago, Texas had already gone wireless.

I asked Bullman this very question a few days ago.

Sr_Egor: Hey Bull other than your family, friends and mexican food, what do you miss most about Texas?

Bullman: One thing I can think of is Charmin. I'd pay the man for some Charmin right now.

I too miss most of those things!

I just made 35 cupcakes from scratch, including the icing...man, where's Betty Crocker when you need her?!

Wow! I couldn't imagine not being able to buy the same foods we are use too. My kids are so picky they would probably starve. ;o}
Found your blog from Nina's and thought I'd pop over for a visit.
Have a great weekend!

I miss English speaking television, being able to buy ingredients that I need right away because I know what store to go to, mostly sunny days, my family and friends, my pets, the clothing dryer, being able to drink tap water without fixing it first...
