Hi Peg leg Jack - I have always liked eggs. I have at least 3 jumbo eggs with my breakfast every day although I have been reading for years that you should only have 3 per week. Do not have to feel guilty now? Herb

Boy, PLJ, if I could, I'd certainly come and swim with you...with your wife's permission of course!   ;)  I'm dying for a pool of my own.

Here's an interesting piece on cleaning up EGGS:


This is for all the germ-conscious folks that worry about using cold water to clean.

John went to visit his 90-year-old grandfather in a very secluded rural area. After spending a great evening chatting the night away, John's grandfather prepared breakfast of bacon, eggs, and toast.

However, John noticed a film-like substance on his plate, and asked his grandfather, "Are these plates clean?"

His grandfather replied, "They're as clean as cold water can get 'em. Just you go ahead and finish your meal, Sonny!"

For lunch the old man made hamburgers. Again, John was concerned about the plates as his appeared to have tiny specks around the edge that looked like dried egg and asked, "Are you sure these plates are clean?"

Without looking up the old man said, "I told you before, Sonny, those dishes are as clean as cold water can get them. Now don't you fret; I don't want to hear another word about It!"

Later that afternoon, John was on his way to a nearby town and as he was leaving, his grandfather's dog started to growl, and wouldn't let him pass.

John yelled, "Grandfather, your dog won't let me get to my car."

Without diverting his attention from the football game he was watching on TV, the old man shouted, "COLDWATER, GO LAY DOWN NOW, YAH HEAR ME!"

Edward, that is very true.

Mitchee and Miffanwy, i read somewhere that a cold water shower is better for you than a hot one, they say by using hot water it causes the chorline to enter you body, I know this is a bit off topic.

Hi Pegleg - maybe down in the tropics where you live, you can take cold showers. Up here in NH we only have a few months a year when we might be able to take a cold shower but even in the summer I like my showers hot. I have a well so I do not have to worry about chlorine. I have 2 dogs who frequently get leftovers on dinner plates. I sometimes tell my guests that my dogs do such a good job cleaning up the plates that I do not even have to run them through the dishwasher. Jack You have a good day. I am loading hay in the hay loft today so I expect to be sore tonight. Herb

Herb, is that bales or loose hay that you are handling?

And with a well you don't have to worry about choline or fluoride either.

Hi Peg - I use what are commonly called square bales ( although they are actually rectangular) They weight 40-50 lbs each. I use 800 or so per year. Herb

HERB, hope that you have a big bacon and eggs with toast for breakfast.

And i have stacked many of those type of bales, was raised in the northeastern part of WYOMING and western SOUTHDAKOTA. And a stack of them there was usually 2000, to a stack and we would put up sometimes 3 stacks a day, depending on how good the hay crop was. did this until they come up with the automatic bale stacker and then we lost our jobs,

Hi Peg - you are a better man than I am now. I can load and unload about 200 bales in a day and I am ready for a few beers. I used to load the hay on the 2nd and 3rd levels of the barn but the last 2 years I got lazy and have been using the lowest level. Next year I hope to buy a hay elevator to get my hay up to the higher levels so I have more room to store equipment and boats and snowmobiles on the ground level. Herb

We roll Hay here unless it's for selling but you have to do it right or the rolls can get moldy and useless.

I limit myself to two eggs on Sunday only with a big old slab of Scrapple, some thick bacon and a few sausages growed local. Eggs are good if you need to follow a low carb diet. Only one gram each.

It's 98 degrees in the Jaccuzzi but I'm not alowed in it alone.

Hi Joe - the jacuzzi is always more fun with the right company. I have been wanting to try big rolls of hay for some time but have always been afraid of the mold which can be dangerous for horses. I have used them in the past with cows which can tolerate the mold. Eggs have got to be better for you than pig heads. My dad used to have friend that was always eating head cheese. I once saw vegetarian scrapple made with soy. Herb

Joe,  What is scrapple?  I know it's PA specialty but I don't have a clue what it is.  Thanks,  Annieg

Ick!!!  Yuck!!!  Those are the words that most people use to describe scrapple.  LOL   Sorry Joe, no offense intended.  I say if you enjoy it, go for it.

I think scrapple is the Pennsylvania equivalent of head cheese.  At least that is what it looked like to me.

Joe, is scrapple also know as puddin' ??  When I went to grad school in PA, I recall people in central PA ordering puddin' and it also looked like head cheese.

Title: Re: EGGS
Post by: Mitchee on February 24, 2009, 08:26:16 PM
I just looked up scrapple and it is different from head cheese.

I think that puddin' resembles head cheese more than scrapple. 

Sorry for the confusion.

Regardless of what it is, I don't eat any of it.  LOL
