PS .. A little Dude advice. Dude suggest whenever you see a good deal (Sale) on canned Tuna at Ralph’s or your favorite supermarket, pick-up a few cans, stock up and save. Five cans of sale priced tuna at .79 cents a can is just $3.95 . Those same 5 cans at regular price of $1.29, or $6.45 total. Pretty smart, keep doing that, and… Abide in that!
