To the person who mentioned a Tuna Sandwich. Please consider not eating any fish from the ocean. The Pacific is now a cancer waiting to happen with
all the nuclear materials coming from Japan. If you don't believe me, get a Geiger counter and check out the radioactivity. The Atlantic isn't far
behind. A couple of years ago I bought a couple of cases of the tuna I liked because the price was right. Now I'm thankful for that purchase.
As to food container size, I wish they had left sizes the same and changed the price. In that way we aren't just paying for packaging, Pretty soon
an ice cream container will fill a sugar cone. People don't realize how prices have skyrocketed, and even the news people don't have a clue or
don't choose to make an issue of it.
Build/create your own backyard/balcony garden and grow grow grow. When I was young in the '50s we had a huge garden in which we were forever weeding
and watering. We had a farm and the garden fed our family of 5 and all the help on the farm too. Since we raised beef, that was our staple food.
Now that I'm on a soap box, about cattle. Cattle can be raised on grass all summer and hay all winter, but about 6 weeks before they are to be
slaughtered, they need grain. Mostly corn for cattle. WHY? Because it adds flavor and fat beading to the meat. Yes you can eat grass fed cattle,
but it is TOUGH and tasteless. We raised Aberdeen Angus (Black Angus) and we sold Prime meats, this was the stuff restaurants bought because it was
the best. Sure there are other breeds of meat cattle, and some people sell them as top shelf and charge outrageous amounts per pound, but Black
Angus, properly fed for the last 6 weeks of their life are excellent. Some people complain about feeding cattle grain, they just don't understand
the principals involved, and frankly the amount of grain is small.
If you investigate the British Royals, they have farms here which raise cattle in this way. They then bring it to England for their meals and their
