I think it is a matter of opinion, but I definitely prefer US milk, but what about those Canadian hockey players . It could be the packaging, but I think it is the feed the cows eat.

Subtle references are never lost on you, BT! Enjoy the game!

Yeah, but you get Ontario milk, not Quebec milk.

Sacre bleu is a French expression, not Quebecois.

By the time milk leaves the dairy, they should have to call it Milk-Like Product. Skim and Low Fat have powdered milk added back to increase protein content. That powder is made by forcing milk through tiny holes and heating the mist, doing all sorts of damage. But the dairy does it, because they can pretend it's healthier, and the cream they remove is high value to them. Skim isn't healthier at all, it turns out and may well be much worse. Whole milk is homogenized by using other small holes to break the fat molecules down, creating potentially harmful forms. And it's all further abused by heating. There's a reason why dairies processing milk that came from virtually identical dairies can advertise that theirs "tastes better." How can a products that comes from indistinguishable cows taste different? Because of the different brute processing and additives.

More and more, it turns out that the healthiest food staples were the less manipulated natural products. Butter, raw milk, evaporated cane sugar. Worse yet, we eat the less tasteful forms in the belief that they are better for us, when eating real would be both better and better for us.

I'm not sure of the temperatures, but I like my milk very cold (not near frozen though), and only from a glass. I do not like milk out of plastic cups, or out of Styrofoam or cardboard cups.

If I could get raw milk, I would do so in a New York minute. If I could purchase fresh, ripe, unprocessed veggies, and fruits, I would. If I could get artisanal cheese, made from raw milk, I would. But I can't get any of those, especially this time of year, except for what I grow myself. And my yard isn't large enough to fill my yearly needs.

As a species, we love to take what is good, and modify it to make it "better". But in every case, we make it worse. Our need for telivision factories exceeds our need for wholesome, locally grown food. Our need for exotic cuisine from around the world, exceeds our need for wholesome, locally grown food.

Our need for work, often breaks the family into strangers who live thousands of miles from each other.

Now see what you've done! You put a soapbox in front of me!

I'm quitting now before this gets ugly.

P.S. aren't you all proud of me? I stopped short of a forty page essay.

Oh-oh, I'm starting to toy with the thought that maybe what I need is is a dairy cow...
