No worry about rambling. Good info, nice to know.

Aged beef- aren't tenderloins aged even longer than two weeks?

A store I go to sometimes does not have the best rep for meat. I will usually only get the tenderloins that are vacuum sealed in hard plastic by an unrelated company.

years ago the old butcher shops, would hang and age thier meats ,,,for 2-4 weeks,,then scrape the mold and bacteria off them,,,when they were ready to slice, most "aging" nowadays is in a humidity and temp controlled cooler.

i remember my grandmother telling me, years ago,,how it was so common for girls/wives/mothers to process thier own chickens and hogs...when growing up poor on a farm....she couldnt understand what a "squeamish" society we have become"
(she passed many yrs ago)

All this talk of meat makes me want to be a vegetarian! I love steak but something about old meat, lights an cloning makes me want to hurl.

My dad was a butcher when I was young we owned a grocery store in town and we always had the best meat, my folks were put out of business by a BIG name store in the next town over and people flocked to it. After my parents went out of business the people in town regreted it and missed my dad's meat market.

This is one reason my husband hunts.....we eat elk when he actually get's one and it's low in fat and most of it we turn into hamburger and sausage, with some roasts. It fills our freezer and I never have to buy any meat from the market unless we really want a New York Steak.

Funny story.... my husband got an elk one year and we were driving at the time a Roadmaster Stationwagon...so ugly but awesome car. DH got elk and loaded it in the back of staionwagon, wrapped in black trash bags to take it to my dad's to butcher. Our car broke down and the police showed up to help. This elk looked like a dead body in the back of our car! They stared in the back of our car with flashlights and made us lift hatch. They laughed at the sight and drove my husband back home to get the other car while I waited for him in the wagon with a 1 yr old and dead elk in the back.

But he sure tasted good-

Haha, funny story. Body in the Roadmaster.
Pretty nice of the cops to drive your husband back to the house.

Thumbs up Hello Jenkaye!

FUNNY POST!

However, you are right, with all of this talk about CLONED products, old

meat, etc. It does make you want to go vegetarian!

I am glad that people are concerned about this CLONING business, and

maybe it will not be successful, if there is enough awareness and people

write to their congressmen.

I have enjoyed reading all of your posts! Thanks!


Take care,

Countrylv22

I'd like for someone to clone me a new body, and transplant my brain into it.

If I can have the body I had at 18 I'm flip flopping on cloning and completely support it.

I've scrubbed into enough neurosurgery cases to know that a brain transplant isn't going to happen anytime soon.

Now, we might be able to clone you some of the other organs you had when you were 18 and pop them right in.

Can I get a new gallbladder? I'd really like to have one of those again. My digestion just isn't the same without it.
