Since we know the numbers are going to suck since Peppermint Patty is leading the Amen Corner Media to blame Putin for it:

Frankly, I prefer my spaceship to have big tits and not fake inflated ones.

EDIT - numbers drop:
America goes back to the 80s: Surging gas prices and higher rents push inflation to 41-year high of 8.5% as White House blames it on Putin invading Ukraine
The consumer price index rose 8.5% in March from a year ago, the fastest increase since December 1981
Housing costs, which make up about a third of the index, have escalated and show no signs of cooling
Gasoline prices soared 49% in March from a year ago as the war in Ukraine rocked energy markets
Biden's administration tried to get ahead of the dire inflation news by blaming Russian leader Vladimir Putin
But Republicans place the blame for soaring prices on 'Democrats' reckless spending and failed policies'

Remember when it was $5 for a footlong sandwich at Subway ? I think that was about 5 years ago. Now it is $6.99 if you use a coupon :-(

You’re off by just a bit.

I prefer the bag of lettuce that does not include a dick in it (bottom right).

Cost me $6.99 using the coupon for a foot long sub at Subway near my townhome in Panama City Beach.

Your post 180 Crandon Blvd is in Key Biscayne (i.e., a very posh and upscale Miami Beach hood). That's very far from the Redneck Riviera (Florida panhandle) not just distance, but also cost of living and culture.

At least we get at least 8 and 1/2 months of beach weather and the water visibility is +40 feet and the beach sand is white.

But I hear you as far as how expensive Subway is there in Key Biscayne compared to here.

Introduced in 2007, the $5 footlong deal initially allowed sandwich lovers the chance to order any sandwich of their liking for just five bucks.

Then one day in 2015, the deal tiptoed off the menu altogether.

Subway began advertising $6 footlong sandwiches in early 2016.

Two years later, the $5 deal tried to make a comeback, but Subway CEO Trevor Haynes had to pull the plug on it entirely as complaints ran rampant among franchisees, who claimed their margin of profit was next to nothing. As Hayes told USA Today, each store, which is independently owned and operated, now had a choice to decline the $5 footlong promotion.

Unfortunately, the "abortion" hysteria has legs and will bring female votes to Biden.

Why do women consider the greatest gift that they can offer the world - the power to bring new life forth - as a curse or an "inconvience?"

Derailing the post a bit, but I don't think people understand the panhandle. Hands down the best beaches in America. I just don't think many people active in the present or past on patnet have ever been there. I literally think AD and I are the only ones that have been. Maybe I'm wrong.

Pensacola, Destin and Panama City are your bigger places with more food and entertainment options. My preference is Navarre Beach. I drive over to Fort Walton but haven't stayed there. Cool smaller town. St. George Island is cool if you got $$$. Stay in the Plantation. Appalachicola is a cool which is the nearest big town. No high rises anywhere there.

I actually don't want people to go there. Navarre I think has agreed to not build any new towers. National sea shore park to the east. Super quiet all things considered. Kind of shitty food options, at least the last time I was there. But you can drive over to Pensacola, Fort Walton, Destin for more options. On a calm day, it's the US mainland Caribbean.

I have been to Pensacola. They had the concrete bathtub boat races going at the time.

When I spot a bread machine at the thrift store, it's time to get back into it. Right now I just make Pancakes and Johnny Cakes and Corn Pone for myself and the kids for weekend breakfast. Teaching the eldest how to make the basic flour recipes, surprisingly he loves bannock and simple pan breads, plain!

Yes, best ever homemade dinner rolls and for loaves you can make variations like parmesan bread.
