As a kid I drank full cream milk straight down from pint bottles. I couldn't do it now. I only have semi skimmed in my tea these days. I don't think I'm lactose intolerant or react to dairy foods, but I just don't like it any more.


At this point I'm doing ok in that part and dairy foods are still a plus but Doc say's 2%? oh man it's like cutting your legs off. It's like you can't have fish and chips but you can eat the paper. :(

Due to the calcium loss from my skeleton, caused by myeloma, I drink pints of full fat milk. As well as chewing 3 1500mg calcium tablets daily, and monthly go for a calcium drip.

The Osteo consultant tells me the bone is being plated with new calcium, but the bone strength will never recover from it's current weakened state.

My doc is concerned that my cholesterol is 5.8 so anything more than semi skimmed is not advisable. But Milk has changed so much over the years. In the 1950's as a kid, we had glass bottles, silver top whole milk 3.5%, Red top homogenised, and Gold top Channel Island milk 5.2%.

These days we have plastic bottles, blue top whole milk 3.6%, green top Semi-Skimmed Milk 1.8%, and red top skimmed milk 0.1%. Of course the rest of the world have to go and complicate things by selling stuff called 1% and 2%. It seems 2% is equivalent to our semi skimmed milk, but lord knows what 1% is meant to achieve, sounds like flavoured water. Although Waitrose are now flogging purple top 1%, and Tesco are still selling gold top 5.4%.

You know what doctors and the medical profession are like. If you like it it's bad for you, if you don't like it, you are supposed to have it. Bunch of killjoys I say, it's all an international plot to keep you living longer and be miserable, so they can keep sending their bills in.

Why not take statins from your GP. There is no prescription charge for you, and 40 mg 1 daily tablet does wonders.

My cholesterol dropped from 6.7 to 3.4 inside a month, and is still there.

I'm supposed to go back to see if it has dropped naturally, now that I have cut out dairy foods etc. If not then it will be statins. I'm waiting for the call. The day my GP says cut out Timmy Tyalors, he will be removed from my Xmas card list :-0

Ok, I guess I should clarify. I hate the taste of straight milk. I like it in my Coffeee, off course mixed with Chocolate, or some rich cream over a piece of Pie.
And a bunch of other stuff.
I guess this might compare to plain Liver to others or Brusselspeouts to the Goat.

Hate Milk.

Hate is such a strong word, dislike might do. Me I don't dislike milk, I just can't have any as I'm trying not to gain any weight, ice cream once or twice a month is bad enough, I think I have lost some, cause I can now easily reach around a part of My back that I wasn't able to before. Breakfast is now eggs and sausage.

Going back to overcooked kidneys:

I think it was a generational thing. Both my Dutch mother-in-law and my Saskatchewan raised mother learned that you cooked food to kill the germs. If you had some flavour left over, good. If you didn't, shut up and eat it anyway.

That's true. Best place to eat something is in its country of origin I guess.


Funny how McDonalds changes the menus like in Hawaii they even serve rice and I have heard other's like Japan and so on put a twist to the meals. I don't stop there often I can't handle the grease and salt. I wonder how Taco Bell does in China? :)



We only have McDonalds here, no Burger King, Taco Bell or Jack in the Box. We also have the Belgian counterpart of McDonalds which is called 'Quick'. In Holland they do have Burger King though.

In Yermo, We have Jack in the Box, Burger Den(in the Original location of the 1st Del Taco restaurant), Peggy Sue's 50's Diner, Calico Ghost Town and there's a smaller diner near the Jack in the Box that I've been passed that I don't know the name of... But that's all for Yermo, Barstow has more, McDonalds, Burger King, Jack in the Box, 3-DelTaco's, Taco Bell, KFC, Wendys, Sizzler, Ihop, PizzaHut, Little Caesars, Domino's Pizza, etc, etc...

Isn't Barstow a small town or is it spot in the road to fill up?

It's a town with around 20,000 in population that has two freeways passing through town, plus there are 4 other communities around Barstow and yes a lot of traffic passes through on the way to NV and to AZ or to LA in the other direction. Barstow has a good number of truck stops too, not to mention the UPRR and the BNSF Rwy.

I knew where it was and know they some good quakes there but never passed through it. I go to Phoenix once in a while but Barstow isn't on my stop list. I did take a look at google map after a wrote it and found it much bigger than I thought. P.S. never got and A in spelling in school but by the time I hit 80 I might master it just a few years away. :)

Wow, wouldn't be good for my diet to live there. Where I live, you have to drive 20 minutes to go to a Mc Donalds...

I must say I'm not that fond of fastfood either but the children like it once in a while. I'd rather have a good home cooked meal.

One can go through a lot of money in short order, I seldom stop at any of them. Doughnut shop is my big thing.

I have to laugh when I was 16 the only one out there at the time was McDonalds, the only show in town. Burgers was 15 cents, cheese burgers were 20 cents ans milkshakes was 25 cents. Then another place opened up selling burgers for 10 cent? well those were the days when you go out with a date for under 5 dollars. :)
P.S. gas was 22 cents and as cheap as 15 cents. and today? I can't start my for under that. :))
