Two things about Maryland puzzle me and don't make a whole lot of sense when compared to the rest of the civilized world. Heh
1. For some reason residents still aren't able to co-mingle their recyclables into a single stream pickup container. Paper goes in one while another is for paper and cardboard. One huge bin on wheels for the paper, a small one for glass, cans, plastic, etc. I just find this weird because we're so used to being able to toss everything into one bin.
2. You cannot buy beer or wine much less any harder liquor in a grocery store in Maryland. We're very familiar with other states which have state run liquor stores where hard liquor is sold but beer and wine are sold in grocery stores. Maryland makes things very inconvenient and in this day and age, it's very weird. It's like they still consider residents children. I know it's a state in the profit making business, but come on, most states have conceded the beer.
