Big O's Comments

Remembering my grandmother got eggs from an old Swiss farmer. They were Jumbo, loved the way he said "Chumbo" eggs and almost all were double-yolkers.

Last year we had a box of frozen salmon I had purchased at our local grocery store the week before. MrsO cooked it up and served it. I took a bite and it was like cardboard. YUCK. Not edible. Checked the package and the due/use by date was 2009 ! Complaints at the store got me a $25 gift card, to the frozen fish company a coupon for two new meals. I check things like milk and juice, but who would have thought I needed to check frozen food? I do now. I would hope the folks that stock the frozen food section rotate the products carefully.

I have a lot of useless information crammed into my brain. There are times when I know a lot of the answers. I feel especially good when I know the final one and all 3 contestants do not. The reality is that if I was keeping count, I probably know less than 50% of the answers. If I ever tried and got on the show it would be my luck that categories like 13th Century Bulgarian Poetry would be on the board. I still watch a lot, especially when someone is on with 5 or more wins.

At a former home back in CNY, we had to clear out an overgrown area along side the house. I went through 2 lawnmowers until I finally went manual with a scythe. Worked for me.

I have a brother in law in Canada that runs a large turkey farm. Most of his operation is automated and also keeping the mortality rate low. He does raise some free range birds for those willing to pay for them. Of course free range will mean higher cost as it involves lower production. It's agribusiness, folks, and we (the free world) feed the world.

FM radio DJ on the grave yard 3-7 AM shift. Studio empty and locked. I'd get tired to the point where I was hallucinating that someone was in the studio the other side of the glass. I'd actually go out and look around. Spooky to say the least.

Check out this quote. "After a year of teaching, it strikes me that what we really need are students to engage in their own education." Amen Brother Tony!

As a retired teacher with 32 years of high school behind me his observations are interesting. My open house experience had college bound student's parents packing the room, while lower track kid's parents almost non-existent. Sad commentary on our world.

I once bought a package of frozen salmon. My wife cooked it for dinner one night and it was like eating cardboard. There was a coupon in the package for cents off a future purchase. It was dated to expire two years before I bought it. I look at the package and it had a use date of 5 years before ! I bought it to the attention of my grocery store and the food processor. The store gave me a $25 gift card and the food company sent me coupons for two free items. I'd have rather had fresher salmon in the first place.
