    Regarding Milk. I only drink/use Organic milk these days even though it costs about twice as much. Normally I do not go all ga ga over "organic" because there is no real evidence that non organic veggies and fruits are any better or worse for human consumption as long as you wash your fruits and veggies.

    BUT, the organic milk comes from cows that are not given any antibiotics and more importantly any hormones to increase milk production. Those DO end up in the milk and can cause problems in humans. I don't really want or need any estrogen and it can increase the incidence of breast cancer in females. Just FYI.

    Also...it is now believed that the increasing amounts of estrogen in milk is the #1 reason why young females are reaching puberty at such earlier ages than ever before.
    The population in the Netherlands is one of the tallest in Europe, maybe even in the world, and has become that way only recently (post WWII). One of the theories revolves around Dutch Agri-Business practices which use a lot of hormones and the like, ostensibly needed to produce super-high yields on very small acreages to feed to Dutch populations. I have not seen any scientific data - this is merely hearsay from a Dutch friend of mine.

    There are two kinds of people I can't stand in this world. People who are intolerant of other people's cultures, and the Dutch.

    Do you mean my avatar? That's just a picture I like. I think it's a chihuahua, not a terrier. I love that little dog's spunk.

    My dog is a Cairn Terrier. She likes looking in holes in the ground.

    Here's a cool lil' trick...... place a small glass of water (I use an old shot glass) in the microwave when you warm the pizza up. This helps keep the dough/crust from becoming 'chewy' and tough.

    Cold pizza for b'fast used to ba a staple for me....... now I can't stand it, but I still LOVE pizza!

    Your avatar makes me smile every time I look at it. Spunk on steroids. After looking at the picture closer I think your right, it's a Chihuahua.

    I have a Boston Terrier who has spunk if there's nothing better to do, otherwise, he's a couch potato.

    Well, don't feel too bad. We have Rockefeller and Manchin.

    That Udall comment really had me thinking he had shown up for the wrong hearing.

    That little chihuahua (I like to pronounce it as written: chi-hoo-ah-hoo-ah) makes me laugh too. I'd like to have one that looks like that and they make great watch dogs, for sounding the alarm and ankle biting.

    Your attached photos aren't coming up for me. Can you check them?
