My mother's family is from New England - Maine, to be exact. Several years ago, my aunt thought I was being extravagant when I bought ramen (vegetarian, no MSG) for 3/$1, when there was some at the same store (chicken powder, loads of MSG) for 10/$1. Oy - I have a lot of programming to... re-program!
Thanks for lots to think about (and act on), Steve.
