If You Control The Food Supply, You Control The World

 I have blogged about the documentary called "Food Inc." you may purchase it on Amazon for around $10.  Please buy it and share the information with your friends.  It is shocking information and I could not believe what I was hearing.  It also goes hand in hand with the book "Seeds Of Deception".  Now I am asking you to watch another documentary called "The World According To Monsanto".    Monsanto on a global level, Purdue and Tyson in the US are well on their way to controlling our food supplies.  They dictate how our food is gro...more

Illegal Immigrant Situation Facing Our Nation, Are You Ready For The Truth?

It is so easy for everyone to sit back and run their mouths on any number of topics. Very few will actually have the ability to be slightly open minded and keep their mouth shut before they even bother to get down and dirty and do some research on their own first. On that note, I am in fact doing my own research on a very hot topic right now, the illegal immigrants issue that is exploding across our nation....more

Cheese, Seafood and Meat Appetizers to Whet Your Palate for 2010

The year is almost over, and it's time to settle on the menu for New Year's gatherings. I love using New Year's Eve as an opportunity to serve rich, elegant food that celebrates the year past and the year to come. I also love serving small bites rather than a big meal: it provides flexibility so guests can arrive in their own time, and frees me up to enjoy the party rather than preparing dinner. ...more

All vegetarian diet may not be the most sustainable

One of the issues that people often bring up to me as a beef producer is the "footrprint" of eating meat versus a strictly vegetarian diet.  I know that my cattle are raised on land that could not be (or should not be) used for any sort of cultivation, but I've been looking for some good research reports on the subject.   I got some leads from friends at the American Farmland Trust. ...more
