Mine and Yours

Mine Yours.jpeg

In synagogue today, we read from Pirkei Avot (“Ethics of Our Fathers”).


And I talked with my friends at lunch about one passage from this timeless wisdom.


There are 4 types of people:


1) “Average Joe”

What’s mine is mine, and what’s yours in yours. 


Someone described this as “his and her–separate–accounts.”


2) Stupid

What’s mine is yours, and what’s yours in mine. 


Ah, this is just someone whose plain old confused.


3) Wicked

What’s mine is mine, and what’s yours is mine.  


One guy described his ex-wife this way.


4) Righteous 


What’s mine is yours, and what’s yours is yours.  


We all agreed this is the meaning of life–to be kind and giving to others.


What type of person are you? And what type of person do you want to be?  😉

Trader Joe’s Is Growing On Me

Organized

I took this photo in Trader Joe’s.

I like how organized (and colorful) they are.

A binder for everything…dairy, produce, bread, cereal, meat, cheese, snacks, cookies and candy, frozen goods, beverages, and flowers, , 

Another binder for training…nice, they care about their employees.

And even for donations–another sign proudly stated that the store had donated $925,000 of goods so far this year…that’s pretty amazing!

I previously wrote about 10 Reasons To Love Trader Joe’s (and 2 to not), but this store is continuing to grow on me. 

Especially with all the healthy eating you can do from there–that’s probably the most important reason of all to shop there. 😉
