  • we do get sick once in a while and when we do we have old ladies who are ready to chew some plants secretly uprooted from a nearby bush and spitting the contents in your mouth

  • Just to make you feel better--my over 50 year-old husband was the last of nine children. His mom actually chewed food for her little ones and then, I assume, spoon fed them.

  • Hey, don't knock the okra! I am from the south and it was a staple when I was growing up. It is too cold to grow it here and the stuff in the store..well it wasn't the okra I grew up on!
