Chicken Growth Hormones

Chickens grow much more rapidly than they once did and some consumers have concluded that this rapid growth is due to the use of hormones in these animals...However, hormone use in poultry production is illegal in the United States...Furthermore, several scientific studies have documented the fact that chickens grow rapidly because they are bred to do so.

Thank goodness because I was afraid that we might find ourselves taken over by several billion sumo-sized chickens.

And anyway, who needs growth hormones when you have In-N-Out right down the street??? (The chickens are thrilled as, much to my kids' chagrin, they are not on the menu there....the chickens, not my kids.)

Well, it has been almost a year since we moved to CA (again) and I would title this year as "A Year of Growth." We grew a baby from scratch (and subsequently a rounder body that seems to be a little too comfy that way), we grew our three seedling children, we grew to realize southern CA wasn't so bad if you could overlook the incredibly screwed up values that many people seem to have here (oh wait, yeah, it is THAT bad...) We also grew an incredibly high yielding crop of MILDEW in our bathroom, and some mold elsewhere, though I can't quite put a finger on it. (But never fear! My lungs call it to my attention regularly...WHEEZE!) We grew our debt, some extra stress, some weeds, some flowers, and currently, we are growing peas, zucchini, tomatoes, watermelon, basil and strawberries.

Put it all together and what have you got? Bibbidy-bobbidy-boo!
