    Ms. Vandal lives her life to the fullest by helping her sister overcome her trying and difficult times. Our magnificent country was founded on the principle of “love thy neighbor” and we need to get back to that real soon.

      We have Frys here which is a Kroger company and they go out of their way to take care of their customers. If you have any problem at all, just call customer service and they will take care of it. Then they send you coupons to use for the items you buy. They also have Senior Day every first Wednesday of the month which gives a 10% discount on every item you buy on your total bill. They have better prices than others too.

    I want to testify on how I got cured from Herpes. I have been living with this disease for the past 5years, I have done all i can to cure this disease but all my efforts proved abortive until i met an old friend of mine who told me about a herbal doctor called Dr Ihibor, she told me that Dr Ihibor have cure for all kinds of diseases, though i never believed in it because my believe was that there is no cure for Herpes disease. But I decided to give it a try when I contacted Dr Ihibor , he told me he has a cure for herpes that he cured with herbal medicine. I order for the herbal medicine, which Dr Ihibor sent to me through a courier service which i make use of and now behold the herpes is gone and i now have my life back,if you are out there living with this disease i will like you to also contact Dr Ihibor and get this disease cured out of your body. I am a living testimony of Dr Ihibor herbal cure. Thanks once again Dr Ihibor for you are God sent. contact Dr Ihibor through his contact information.

    Do you think “the white manager” … would have waited … “OVER A FULL YEAR” .. .before she invited other WHITE people to fill out an application for her store … SO … WHY did the white person … decide
    to WAIT … “OVER A FULL YEAR” … before suggesting to (fill out an appliction) … to a … NON_WHITE person ?

  17. Terrill S Van Dyke Reply

    @David Ellis …. “The world needs more of this ” … ..
    ” IT took me (the manager of the store) over a FULL YEAR of seeing another person SUFFER … for me to react.”
