    I totally agree. I stopped any fast food a few years ago, but the kids and I especially despise McDonalds. there is one that closed a couple miles away and whenever we drive by the kids say "Yay! One less McDonalds!" (they are 6 and 8).

    I mean, why do you need 8 different kinds of oils AND high fructose corn syrup in BREAD? Never MIND the "meat" and the meat in the fries!

    cool blog. And great webpage. congrats on all your accomplishments!
