And more snow before spring's really here, would mean the gravel being picked! up now would be spread out again.

What is the going "rate" these days for the "good tooth fairy" to leave under the pillow for a baby tooth? Nobody seems to have a definite answer to this question. We have heard as high as a dollar for a first tooth and down to as low as a nickte for a third or fourth. While we are not sure of the worth of thatk old tooth we do know that the new permanent tooth is really priceless and should be treated accordingly. It has to last an ever-Increasing life- time. We carry many products that your denist recommends for good dental care. FUEL SAVINGI Have a rowa HUMIDIFIER CHARITON 4 HILL LTD.
