Drywall Patches Made Fun and Easy for All

No one likes doing drywall repairs but those unsightly fist holes made when grandma comes over for Bridge or Pinochle are unsightly.  There are paper patches with self adhesive backings made to stick on and paint but the outline of the paper is found to be lacking.  The best way is to repair it with spackle or joint compound.

Bought Half a Tamworth Hog

The Tamworth , also known as Sandy Back and Tam , is a breed of domestic pig originating from its namesake Tamworth , Staffordshire UK , with contributions from Irish pigs. It is among the oldest breeds of pigs, but as with many older breeds of cattle, it is not well adapted to modern production methods and is listed as "Threatened" in the United States and "Vulnerable" in the United Kingdom by Rare Breeds Survival magazine. Be confident, as there are less than 300 registered breeding females left. This animal has a coloring between ginger and red and is believed to be descended from wild boar, through the native European pigs. The main populations at present are in the United Kingdom, Australia, United States, New Zealand and Canada.

The Food, the Fat, and the Starchy!

The Smithsonian Magazine recently shared an article about how “on a calorie-to-calorie basis, potatoes, wheat and rice require two to six time less resources to produce than pork, chicken, eggs or dairy”.  The claim that beef takes ten times more resources is shocking but the unseen is what is most concerning.

There doesn’t seem to be any thought given to these ‘farm’ animals diets.  Factory farming feed is often the waste left over from other processing acts like soybean meal as its left over byproduct from pressing the oil out.  The grains that are fed to animals are don’t simply line up with what we would find in a can of corn or on a cob at the grocers.  Have you sever seen the giant ear of corn on some dent varieties?
