Bee-Killing Pesticides

All over the country, bee populations have declined due to toxic insecticides called neonicotinoids.  In fact, at least 40 pollinator species are threatened or endangered.  We need healthy bees to have healthy crops.  Leave a comment for the Pollinator Health Task Force at the link below.  Let them know you support saving our bees!

Did you know…

…that in France, a turkey is called a “chicken from India”?

…that the shape of turkey droppings indicates a turkey’s gender?

…that dinosaurs like T-rex and Velociraptor had wishbones?

Neither did I.  Read more interesting facts about turkeys at this link to the Compassion in World Farming website:

Fannie Farmer Meatloaf Recipe

This is by far, the best meatloaf I’ve ever had.  It’s an old recipe, but it still works.

2 cups breadcrumbs
1 onion, chopped fine
2 eggs, slightly beaten
2 pounds ground beef
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1-1/2 teaspoons dry mustard
1-1/2 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
3/4 cup milk

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.  Grease a loaf pan.  Combine all ingredients in a large bowl, using your clean hands.  Pat into the loaf pan and bake for at least an hour.
