Another reason I don't go to Tar-zhay is that I don't speak Armenian, and most of their current employees don't speak English.  At least not well enough to be understood.  (There are lines waiting for the store to open EVERY day, not just "Black Friday."  At least there were when I used to drive by there....I'm SO glad I stopped driving!

I don't shop at Target either.  I've only been getting recall notices for a week now, and most of them, like this one, I don't have to worry about.  I posted this one because I thought it might affect some people.

I've stopped buying things at Walfart almost completely, but they do carry the two brands of laundry detergent that Consumer Reports have rated the top of their list, and I can find them no were else in town.

Well, that's another product I don't have to worry about....there IS a Target store near here, but it's as sleazy as Walphart.  Wouldn't be caught dead in there.  (NO Walphart in Burbank; the City Council won't let them build or lease here.)

Why Can't Humans Eat Grass?

Comment by Joan Denoo on March 20, 2015 at 3:52pm

I wonder? I'm on the hunt:

"In principle, people can eat grass; it is non-toxic and edible. As a practical food source, however, your lawn leaves a lot to be desired.

"There are two main problems with a grass diet. The first is that human stomachs have difficulty digesting raw leaves and grasses. Animals such as cows, on the other hand, have a specialized stomach with four chambers to aid in the digestion of grass (a process called rumination).

Aside from the digestion issues, a second problem with grass as a food source is the mastication. Your dentist would not be pleased; grass contains a lot of silica, an abrasive which quickly wears down teeth. Grazing animals have teeth that are adapted to continually grow, replacing the worn tooth surfaces quickly."

Tillamook is my choice to. They have none of those homones that I can never remember, 

"Tillamook cheese is produced rBGH-free, but not their other dairy products."

Spud, thanks for posting the food recall items. We need that information. Also, Spud, I hope you read or watch the permaculture videos and articles. They provide some basic concepts on small home farms. There is one video in particular that I will try to supply for you, if I can find it. 

Randy, I hope you read or watch permaculture material. I talked to a soils guy the other day when I ordered the manure. He saId he found the principles to be sound, especially when grazing animals. He thought grazing animals are the way nature takes care of soil. One doesn't need to not get livestock, just realize there is a bad and a good way to manage a herd.

I prefer Tillamook also.

That reminds me:  I almost broke a tooth on some Del Monte food (Cherry Mixed Fruit cups) a couple of weeks ago.  

I almost never buy things like that, but they were on sale at a very low price.  Anyway, in the 2nd one I ate, I bit into something very hard.  Probably a piece of cherry stone.  Not going to buy that brand again.

Not a problem for me; I stopped eating any kind of pasta the day I was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes...almost 15 years ago.  I never enjoyed standing over a boiling pot, testing for "al dente" anyway. 

The only Kraft products I buy from time to time are their natural (non-pasteurized) cheeses when they are on sale (ie:rarely).  I prefer Tillamook brands.  Kraft makes some of the worst-tasting salad dressings in the world, and their mayo is only partially useful for emergency use on squeaky auto parts.
