Just wanted to share some new-to-me possibly important-to-health information: Articles in variousRead More news sources last week regarding the makers of Cheerios stating they would stop using genetically modified oats in Cheerios but not in their other products, eg, Honey-Nut Cheerios. There have been many animal studies showing that GMO foods provide inferior nutrition. Our labeling laws presently don't require identifying ingredients as GMOs, and apparently many foods being sold contain these. Until these laws are changed, it might be wise to stick with organically grown foods?

Thanks for that update, Byron. I personally don't eat anything I know has GMO items, which prettyRead More much eliminates anything with corn. And I always use organic products. But some people can't afford organic products or don't have easy access to them. I'd like to see better information on labels, too.

Thanks, Colleen, you're right. I was thinking specifically about products made with oats, now thatRead More they seem to be in the same boat with corn. I guess the GMO is OK on one's skin? I wonder...

Belleek Christmas Tree

We also have some traditions to remember family and friends who have passed away. My siblings and IRead More have a grab-bag to choose which family to give the traditional ugly socks and underwear in memory of a great aunt who was famous for her unsightly and ill-fitting gifts. Our mother continued that gift giving and now that she's gone, we do it. There's also the family recipes for cakes, pies and side dishes that have been passed on through the generations. My son taught his daughter how t make the Christmas cookies that have been passed on from my great-grandmother through the family and now down to her five generations later. These rituals and memories shared through the generations take some of the sting out of the losses we inevitably endure if we live long enough.

Great thanks for sharing, Robert! Your ugly socks tradition sounds like lots of laughs!

While there is nothing wrong with Smithwicks, Harp, or Sam Adams, they are hardly the cream of theRead More crop or even representative of the great local variety of lagers we have here in the Philadelphia area. There are literally dozens brewed within a few hours of Philadelphia - perhaps hundreds in the Northeast US, and no need to wonder if they've sat on a loading dock or in the sun for a few weeks waiting to get to your local bar. If you are going to talk beer seriously one cannot simply write about mass-produced beer!

I wish I had your knowledge, Roxborough Area Man. I'm just trying to have a little fun with theRead More daily food holiday, but would love it if you would share your top 10 favorite brews!
