Interesting food news and I'm on the mend, sort of

Good Morning Everyone,

I hope that all of  you are doing well.  I am very slowly on the mend.  I have been very ill and have had to have electrolyte replacement therapy a few times.  Since I do not have a thyroid, this flu really set me back quite a bit.  I am on the mend, though slowly.
Thank you for all of your well wishes, I really appreciated it and am so very happy I have the few readers I have, I consider wonderful friends and blogging mates.

I was sent something that all of you may find interesting.  Maybe some of you who are more attune with the local food world and food safety issues know about this.  This really made me mad, right up there with the pink slime meat substitutes and other pissy food things that the powers that be want you to put in your family's mouth.
I cannot get the web site to post on my blog, but if you do a search, I used Google, search "meat glue" and about the 4th entry down, you should come across a video of an Australian news article from Yahoo 7.,  it is from a news site called" TodayTonight.  See what you can come up with.  This video grossed me out, and it doesn't take much for me to be grossed out from having the flu like I did.  Let me know if you can't find anything, and I will see if I can tweek and find more out.  To my savvy bloggers, you may find more than I, I am not finely tuned to blogging and research like some, so take a run and see what you can come up with.  This needs to be out and about for people to be very aware of, with the prices rising dramatically for all grocery items, the powers that be will not stop to sell you crap and poison, so please be aware, and if other bloggers want to run with this, please be my guest.  You may know more than I.

Well, I have to go get juiced up from the doctor's office, I hate IV's but I need to get re hydrated and should be done with this therapy this week.
Take care all and have a great gardening week.

Hugs to all


  1. I hope you are properly on the mend again soon - flu is SO debilitating. Your words of the crap food were so descriptive I hardly need to go and check out that link, but know I need to do so.

  2. I didn't realize how badly the flu would affect you! I am so sorry you have been so sick.

    Meat glue! What on earth will they come up with next? I always worry when a label says composite or by products....I try to stay away from any of that,.

    You take it easy.

  3. Dear Denim ~ You sure have been sick, and I hope you are feeling much better soon. It's nice to see things starting to sprout there for you.

    Hugs and more well wishes ~ FlowerLady

  4. {{{HUGS}}} Hope you are back to 100% soon. I am so sorry it has been such a rough road for you.

    "meat glue" I am disgusted but not surprised. This is one more reason we are going toward raising or hunting all of our own meat.

    Our goal for next year is to have enough venison in the freezer for all our red meat needs for the year. And enough chickens raised and butchered here for a year.

    We can't raise a pig but we don't really eat much pork anyway.

    Thanks for the information. You are always a good source of wisdom.

    Please take care of yourself and get well.

    Blessings my friend.

  5. I am catching up on my favorite people. So sorry you have been so ill. Thank goodness for iv's! I hope you fully recover soon! I love that little asparagus sprout photo.

  6. PS I've been sick since Wednesday and I think I'll have to pas of the meat glue info. It might make me hurl!!!! I'll check it out when fully recovered!
