    Oh yea, that meat factory.
    I promise not to buy any more fabric until I see something I really like. Or it's on sale. Or I think it might match something.

    A friend of my DD, college graduate, told me that animals that are hunted for meat are real animals that need to live free. Cows and chickens aren't hunted so they are okay to butcher for meat. This loon in now teaching 3rd grade. Parents don't have a clue to what thoughts many young teachers are passing on to kids.
    Got fabric?

    That's funny. Though if grocery store meat has many more additives in it, it will have to be classified as a 'made' product.

    My dogs think their raw meat comes from the white box in the kitchen.

    I love seeing the animals run wild. There are deer, quail, wild turkey, fox, domestic dogs, domestic cats, etc. here. And cayotte, mountain lion, bear, bob cats and man. It's part of the natural world. It's sad, but yes, I'm a part of the preditors.

    that's almost as bad as the woman that called the talk radio station and wanted them to move the deer crossing sign to prevent the deer from getting hit by cars so many times at that spot

    I work with a man who won't eat fresh eggs from chickens, he wants the store bought kind. I didn't have the heart to say anything, he has lived for over 70 years and thinks there's some kind of difference other than the amount of room the chickens get. Ours are all over the place and fed a much better variety, chickens are wonderful fun.

    The very sad thing is that the wild animals live a better life than those raised to feed us.

    What gets me is some total vegans that will have nothing to do with beef. BUTTTTT they don't realize that what went into that beef and came out the other end was used to fertilize the vegetables. LOL! I also heard a gal in the supermarket say she doesn't do dairy because of the red meat. Excuse me! You don't get milk products out of a dead cow. Sometimes one also needs meat protein. Everything should be in moderation anyway.

    When I had chickens and sold the eggs, I was describing how they ran free and ate bugs. One woman got sick thinking about it. They were the most wonderful eggs money could buy. The golden orange yolks stood up high and the whites didn't spread out. yummmmm

    My husband calls it Chicken TV, because we spend so much time just watching them in the summer.

    What alot of people dont know is that animals are raised on farms for fur.
    The meat is your meatby oroducts in cat and dog food. The oils are used in candle making and as shoepolish. Ecery part of the animal is used. The bones are out into oet dood as bone meal and in gardening supplies also. Beaver is one of the few animals used that is trapped. If they weret trapped, the damsthey build would stop up water flow to rivers and streams. There is a reason for every season.

    Unfortunately, I don't think so. My husband used to work with a woman who thought this - he hunts, and she said almost the same thing to him. Why do you have to hunt, when you could buy the meat in the grocery store and no animals get harmed? This is the same woman who was satisfied that she would never get the swine flu because she doesn't eat pork.

    as a child I was raise by my grandparents. Granddad hunted and we ate what he shot-or didn't eat!. Simple-
    When we had more money and my mother would go to the store I would complain because I didn't want the store bought stuff-I wanted the "real" thing from the farms and road stands. LOL I am old-so this was a long time ago.
    Funny how life and time changes you. I still like "real" bacon and farm eggs-corn from stands. I was so spoiled when I lived in Australia with the organic farms-Nothing in the US taste like the King Island beef, cheeses, and Tazzie wines! And fresh veggies were fabulous!!
