No Birthdays to celebrate this week. I know someone celebrated a birthday early but we are not going to announce it until next week. Also, happy belated birthday on March 30 to Bonanza Sports Editor Sylas Wright.

The best deal and steal this week is at Raley’s. Once again they have some great specials and offer Something Extra points for the specials. Susan Herron found some great specials plus the Red Chili Pepper Boursin Cheese. I dare you to have just one cracker with the cheese on it.
