  2. Nevermind I found them! Thanks for posting the analysis section. It is really helpful.

  3. Looks like your RA stocks Sierra Mist from the same distribution center that my RA gets Diet Coke ;)

    Nice shops! I thought about doing the cans of coffee, but opted to pass (not sure why - I think I'm afraid of running out of space already in my new "girl cave" LOL!).

    Have a wonderful Christmas!!!!
