Do you like seafood? I wonder how safe the waters are off the Gulf after the oil spill and fire.

  • Thankfully no because I often wonder the same thing.

  • Yes, I love it. I don't usually give it much thought though..... Now I probably will. We have a couple catfish farms around here and some restaurants only serve their fish... I like that.

  • I like it, but it's a rare enough treat for me that it probably isn't going to be the thing that does me in.

  •  Lobsters & Crab Legs & Shrimp- Oh my!  :)  I wish I could eat more of that, but can't really afford it.  I would hope that thorough testing is being done on seafood brought in from the Gulf, just to be safe for a while.  We don't know the lasting effects of such a large spill like that.

  • I do like seafood and I can honestly say it never occured to me to even think if it was ok to eat. I don't even know where my shrimp comes from.. Hmm.. maybe I should look into that.
