Something is wrong here.
If you like meat CHECK
out the local Grocery prices.

From 2006 the prices have
escalated 20% or more,
not your income.
All because a few companies
 control the price.
The Govt. is letting them
Price fix the Meat.

Read Christoper Leonard
The Secret takeover of America's
Food Business.
Hello Wake up and Fight this.   
4 Companies produce 85% of all Beef
in the USA
Tyson foods--(TSN) chicken
JBSAY --Cargill,Smithfield pork
MARKET POWER--They depress the price of buying from farmers.
They INCREASE the price to YOU the average Joe.
Here's something to know, I used to buy wholesale from Swift.
Swift & Company is an American food processing company
a wholly owned subsidiary of JBS S.A.
(BM&F Bovespa:JBSS3), a Brazilian company that is the world's largest
processor of fresh beef and pork, with more than 
"Big Four" meatpackers - Tyson Foods, JBS, Cargill 
and National Beef - who together slaughter about
 80 percent of U.S. beef. US $40 billion in annual sales as of 2012.
That's from American households. It is also the largest beef processor 
in AustraliaSpeaking Of Australia look at the price of Lamb.
 PS; do not buy Foster farms chicken Watch Frontline ( all about Chicken)
The food inspectors just don't care. They are like a lot of people,
just want the pay check. They don't care either. It's been going on forever,
 slide that money under the table.

 It's a  meat price fixing cartel.  Congress, help American families.

we've come a long way in tubs

Because of my
I like the idea of not
 breaking my neck
 to climb into a tub.

Just what I need.

This is just a
drop dead Bath
not bad, still you have
to climb in. Just elegante. 
I could live with it.

This is so beautiful,
 but not for me. Look's
like it belongs in the Malachite
 room in the Hermitage
