Oh well is that all it was. Pffftt!! OMG!!!!

For some reason I cannot stop laughing. It's not funny ha ha laughter either but that maniacal, nervous laughter that comes on when you can't find another way to eliminate immediate panic.

Be glad you're not in India where aside from rat droppings, cooking oil can often be 50% or more motor oil! I kid you not. This info came from an expatriate woman's story and how difficult she found it initially to live there because of these issues that she had never expected.

Actually, LOL, my son just dropped off a toasted sandwich and I politely said, "I'll eat it soon darling, thank you". I took a bite and gulped and thought, why oh why did I need to know things! Mind you, my mother and grandmother ALWAYS washed dried fruit and I often buy those little boxes for snacks and now realise they're never washed. :(

Then the site I got that url from reminds that if you eat organic you need to be careful because of all the manure that has been used etc.

I wish I could live on filtered air and water now

There was just an ad for JIF (popular p-nut butter brand here). I just started the manical laughing again and my husband questioned me. He informs me that the usual jar of pnb is only like 6 ounces so there is like only 50 insect fragments and 1 1/2 rodent hairs per jar. I feel so much better.

LOL Tell your husband he is a real trooper! And given that wonderful trait he can set about dividing the jar into two containers and taking all the insect bits and hairs in his
