As an articulate, if not always wise, man said:

”Tried to amend my carnivorous habits
Made it nearly seventy days
Losin' weight without speed, eatin' sunflower seeds
Drinkin' lots of carrot juice and soakin' up rays

But at night i'd had these wonderful dreams
Some kind of sensuous treat
Not zuchinni, fettucini or bulghar wheat
But a big warm bun and a huge hunk of meat

Cheeseburger in paradise …”

Gord, a true classic.
I have to admit, I like McD's. Once in awhile, it supplements my preserve the body forever diet of Coke and Twinkies
As for TV, I watch it. I like it. I spend 10 hours a day straining my brain at work, I am fine with a litle brain numbing entertainment. I can live without it, but I don't have to so...
I do consider myself intelligent enough to not be influenced by the advertising. I buy what I want, not what is popular. Stuff is just stuff. If it was gone tomorrow, I could get more stuff. It really has no meaning.
I did learn something through years of mistakes. If you expect cheap, by the cheapest. If you want quality, buy the most expensive. The stuff in between is usually as bad as the cheapest, but has a nicer label.

Talking about the extended families living together. Headlines today: House fire in Watsonville Ca claims life of 7 year old girl. Overcrowding considered a factor. A house fire today claimed the life of a 7 year old chid in Watsonville today. THere were 17 people living in the home. Watsonville has an ordinance that limits occupation to 4 people per bedroom. Watsonville gets 40 complaints per week about homes in violation of this ordinance.
The question is simple. Do 17 people live in a 4 bedroom home because they want to? Or, is it because that is the only way they can afford to live?

I like to try and do this (unless cheap is actually acceptable for the purpose - I am tight ) - but I must confess that I sometimes struggle to work out what is actually quality and what is also marketing.

Mattresses, tires, winning race horses<G>. There's a list of things where it is almost impossible to figure out which are the quality goods.
Sail boats which will be mannerly in all kinds of wx?<G>

The results are in! The China meat grinder does its job well. It ground up the venison to a good texture. Also, we suffered no stomach problems at all. The first little test was a fluke! I dumped too much oregano in my red sauce. We cooked up a nice chili on our wood stove with the second batch of venison. Good stuff!

Main drawback to the grinder aside from all of the cleaning I had to do to get the used motor oil out?
It's already rusting up.

Ha ha ha! That's what I told my wife. I reminded her that it's ok to eat a bit of rust. Same stuff they put in vitamins.... iron oxide.

Ha ha ha!!!! Fantastic, Gord! I'm laughing my head off. Now should I use 10W-40, or 10w-30 this time of year?

Nevermind, I'll just use whatever I can drain from the Perkins.

Check in the Galley Provisions section of your local West Marine, they should have genuine Pam(R) Aerosol Spray Chinese Soy Fogging Oil for Kitchen Appliances. <G>

Does this mean capitalism is OK again?
