Set to go yakking today, but
Just as I was getting in the car to go yakking my brother Barry drives in the yard and is going for a dirt bike ride so I changed the plan and got the dirt bike out and was ready to go for a ride up in the redwood forest.
Checking out the trail
From there we worked our way back to my house and consumed a good amount of cherries.
Working on the old well project
I worked on that for a couple of hours then mostly chair hopped and enjoyed the rest of the day.
Mr. Ed wants to know
Mr. Ed in comments asks how I can eat the one quarter share beef I just bought if they eat corn. Won’t that affect my corn problem.
Its’ one of my concerns although I don’t wish to test it as I have just too many problems determining what has corn in it as most of our stuff does and it’s hard to tell most of the time just what gets me.
However I don’t think eating corn fed meat will cause a problem as eating changes the molecule a lot, but the truth is no one really knows for sure so I do my best to avoid corn fed stuff. A bigger concern is usually what corn products they used in cleaning and processing which is something producers don’t have to tell you.
So I did check before I ordered the meat. The beef comes from a small cheese factory that only feeds their cows pasture and the whey from the cheese process. The guy at the farm said his animals don’t get any corn.
They also get the grain used in some local breweries after it is used to ferment and no corn there either.
I also checked with the butcher guys that kill the animal and do the butchering and no corn is used by them either as since I bought a quarter of the animal they don’t have to follow the government regs that say to use corn products on the carcass.
Let’s see, I bought the quarter share for 400 dollars and paid for killing and butchering and wrapping at 280.00 so 242 pounds of beef costs me 642 bucks.
Anyway that’s the beef story.
