Don't Believe Everything You Know

Tucson Weather Today


Why do so many people in the United States continue to eat spinach in such great quantities? It is a good source of vitamin K and iron, we're told, but we get vitamin K and iron from a great many other foods as well. Spinach does not taste particularly good. It has a bitter flavor (in my opinion) when eaten raw and unembellished. For years I have wondered why so many people recommend eating lots and lots of spinach, and swear that it is a miraculous food.

Well, I recently found out why this phenomenon exists. It is because, at least partially, a goodly number of Americans are so childishly naive and incredibly gullible, and have been purposely misinformed.

The answer is here

Of course, as I said, this is just my opinion, and I am sometimes wrong.

(Not often, though)

I recently found, watched, and enjoyed a half-hour youtube video titled: The Big Bang Theory - How it all started and thought that someone reading this blog, whether familiar or not with The Big Bang Theory TV series might like to view it.


Would you believe that I baked three pies? Well, they were not prepared from-scratch, nor were they full-size pies, but were those little Banquet frozen ones that are about the size of what are called tarts, although a tart is defined as a small, shallow pie, without a top crust, filled with fruit, custard, or the like. These (pictured below) have a top crust and are filled, one of each, with berries, peaches, and apple slices, so I suppose they should not be called tarts, but little fruit pies.

These little pies cost only 89 cents each and they bake in half and hour at an oven temperature of 400 degrees F. And, to my somewhat aged taste buds, they are absolutely delicious. They probably contain way too many chemical preservatives, pesticide residues, and other myriad toxins... but, "Boy oh boy do they taste good."
