In Missouri my social security was not taxed this year, probably because I didn't start working again until December. I even had $3000 unemployment and didn't have to pay on that. Although I didn't pay anything to the state I got back $116 from them because I had paid full price on my taxes. At 65 you can sign forms to reduce your taxes, or if you wait like I did my tax man makes the adjustment for me at end of year.

Don't know about next year yet. I'm working about 2 days a week and will be in a different tax bracket. There comes a time when a portion of the social security is taxed.

Idaho is considering raising sales tax from 6% to 7% but dropping the tax on food.  Also considering making income tax a flat 6.6%, overall increasing state revenues.

I get $16 per month from the state for food, and that is not taxed.  If the new tax law passes, all my food will now be tax free.  My social security income is not taxed, but I don't know yet if I'll be giving the state more or less.

Just bought 7 oz of Gouda for 2.98+6% tax = $3.16 which is $7.22 per pound.  Not too bad.  Haven't eaten any yet as I'm fasting today.

I've taken a fancy to provolone cheese, too. Added it to my scrambled eggs this morning. I just wish cheeses weren't so expensive.

Joan, thanks, I knew but I was confused by a typo. Gouda is 20 minutes by train from here and I've been there a few times. A nice old town centre with canals. Apart from cheese they make candles, pottery and stained glass. Gouda cheese is ok, but I prefer cheese from raw milk, with a sharp tang.

Felaine, I love it. 

1 gram = 0.035273962

1 oz.(US) = 28.349523

At least that is what my calculator told me. Please tell me if I am wrong.

Patricia...the jumbo eggs price is exactly the same here; I usually only buy cantaloupe when they are on sale at a set price instead of by weight.  I haven't bought beef or pork in years....no money.  It's chicken on sale or nothing.  Same for Kraft products (I didn't even know they made p-nut butter)...right now their sliced natural cheeses are on sale, so I ordered Chipotle Cheddar and Colby Jack...$3 for 7.5 oz each.  (It does p*ss me off that food processors sell lower weights than they used to, at the old price.  ie: 3 pints of ice cream at the price they used to sell a half gallon....or the 7.5 oz cheeses.   Cheeses Krisp!  We're getting ripped off everywhere.)

I iz iggerant...I don't know how many grams to an ounce.

Patricia, thanks for the prices. I'll compare them next time I go shopping.

Kathy, I can't drink alcohol anymore either. I loved the flavor and the little buzz. When I drink it now one of my organs gives a kick in the rib that takes all the pleasure out of the drink. The kids had some locally brewed beer at our Yule celebration and they gave me sips. They were just splendid. The sips didn't hurt.
