  • Feeling fine despite the pink slime

    It was widely reported recently that companies that process ground beef for retail grocery stores add pink slime.
    Pink slime is basically beef trimmings that have been sprayed with ammonia to kill the e. coli and salmonella germs in the trimmings.
    ABC TV News showed people all upset because they weren't aware of what was being added to the meat.
    I really don't have a problem with these added beef trimmings. I've probably eaten it for years and thus far, I'm feeling just fine.

  • What a great time of year

    What a great time of year it is! It is now officially spring, and as of last week, each spring sport has started up and began competition. The weather so far for the games, meets, and matches I have attended has been great, much warmer than last year when I remember going to events bundled up in pants, sweatshirts, and even gloves. I know that it may not stay like this, but if it does, I sure won't complain.
