So they are cannibals? Crocs, I mean. Well, then they deserve to be eaten by dogs and humans. How do you prepare gator meat? I have never had it. The only time I wanted to see alligators in real life (not in a zoo), I could not. It was in Florida, Lake Jesup, but it was a windy stormy day and nobody else was around, so no tour. After I left, the rain was so heavy that I thought I could see alligators on the road.  :D

Ive been to a crocodile farm. They only eat meat. In fact, we took a picture of a croc sitting on top of a croc, eating a croc. It was...interesting :D I'd say there's a good chance you wont need to worry about alligators or crocs being grain fed lol.

Ive eaten snake before. It wasnt too bad. Not like chicken but not like fish either.

I actually wondered the same thing.  I live in the land of alligators, and I can buy gator meat at the seafood market and in Publix.  It is quite lean, and although I don't love the taste (but I routinely eat it on the third Saturday in September  ;D ) I think it would be a reasonable choice for protein requiring feed.  I have never heard of a gator farm for food, just the ones for tourists, and I don't know that you could mush them into factory farms as easily as chickens or pigs.  I have a visual of gators being herded into a barn, hmmm.  When they become annoying here, the Sheriff's Department and the Florida Wildlife people have some kind of rules about what size gator gets relocated vs. what size gets destroyed.  Mostly I think they are relocated.  K

Minor triumph today...  last night, late, I set two barstools and an old wine rack down at the end of the driveway.  They have been in garage, and don't fit in this house.  This morning, they have magically disappeared!   ;D  K

Miranda,
I am not saying alligator is "bad" per se, but I would think that is not the main course in a dog's diet (unless the dog lives around alligators, of course, and wants to give them a try).  ;D

What I am saying is that the market stretches its arm in a way that is difficult for us, poor little consumers, to have a good grasp on the consequences of our actions. If this alligator diet proves to be successful, I envision grain-fed alligator farms (if they don't already exist) to meet the needs of the trend. The good part is that maybe chickens will have some relieve.  ::)

I hope my humor is understood  ;)

Ahh, impromptu federal reports. It takes me back to my days on the Hill when Congress would magically decide at 1 pm that they were going to vote on something at 5pm and thus commenced the mad dash to make a bazillion calls and fax out 200 letters in 2 hours.

We also had to do lobbying reporting. Oy what a pain. I feel yours Laurie!

Just out of curiosity, why is alligator meat bad? It's meat. It might not be cow or chicken but it's still protein. In fact, being that the're carnivores, it's probably better than grain fed beef or chicken. Is it just the ick factor?

We try to eat whole as much as possible. We get our milk, eggs, and butter delivered from a local dairy. All our veggies come from a local organic delivery (that's truly local as they list where everything comes from). My daughter hates it because we rarely have  junk food around. She does get a lunchables for lunch but that's about it for processed food on a daily basis. I like it because it keeps DH on track with eating healthy. He worked really hard to lose weight and the best thing for him is to not bring temptation into the house.

Miranda, you and Maya are going to have so much fun.  A co-worker of mine went to Singapore to visit her son during her vacation a couple of weeks ago.  She had a really good time.

Lynda, I'm using water-based poly and it's suggested that 3-4 coats be used.  It's not nearly the same as oil-based and it never yellows or ambers.  This is why I'm using it.  It really looked wonderful this morning.  I plan to apply one more coat when I get home from work, then I'll buff it out when dry.  That will be it.

My entire body is screaming at me this morning and I'm completely exhausted.  I was looking forward to coming to work today to take care of the surprise federal report that all the secretaries and admins need to complete and get to the computer guru so she can compile the info and get it all sent off.  Time sensitive, I do not have all the info needed and I only hope my boss has her info at hand and can take care of her part in a timely manner before she heads off, back to vacation again tomorrow. 

I better get to it before I fall asleep.  I'm tuckered.
