Yeah, I sure don't understand banning plastic grocery bags but not the produce bags! It's like California wants to do the politically correct thing, but doesn't care if it's effective. Almost all garbage companies here give you recycle bins and such, but the news did an expose that showed much of the time the garbage companies throw the recycling in the landfill anyway, especially now because China won't accept our garbage anymore. I think it's disgraceful, we pay for recycling and most folks do their best and then the businesses don't care. Anyway, I'm glad you're happy in AZ! I used to have relatives there but they are long dead now. I am not a beach person and don't want to go there, so it would work for me! I'm sure the expense is not missed! Auto gas is over $4 a gallon now and going up fast! You don't miss that I'm sure!
