Also good for cramps, too, but in smaller amounts. There is a line that is crossed and at that point, all bets are off. but one does what needs to be done. I love pickles, too.

Ir's probably just the salt - cramps will result from too little salt in your diet.

I love milk, and always miss it if traveling somewhere that it isn't widely available, such as when I used to travel on the Continent. Getting on the ferry back to England was always something to look forward to - off to the restaurant for a fried breakfast and a large glass of fresh milk.

We now get through 4-5 gallons a week, and only whole milk - even Little Miss P agrees that 2% is watery.

Yeah, it's loaded with sodium. Cheaper than Gatorade though.

Holy crap. I can only think of a few weeks where I've needed to buy a second gallon, let alone five.

Big milk consumer here, too. I drink a 14oz mini bottle at my desk every work morning, plus I have two large mugs of a drink made with hot milk and instant coffee (I know, don't judge me) every day, and cereal with milk probably 4 times a week.

Whatever else I get, it won't be anything related to a calcium shortage. I do use the 2% though, or I would probably be the size of the Hindenburg by now.

In the NBCW (nuclear, biological, and chemical warfare) classes we got in the reserves we learned the basics of tactical warfare using the 280mm atomic cannon (even though I don't think anyone was still using them). As I recall it was shoot the target area then declare it off limits until radiation abates, then send in a crew in protective suits. It demonstrates a naivety from 50 years ago, but modern plans won't be any cleaner. You wouldn't be able to find uncontaminated milk. After Chernobyl the cows in Europe were giving radioactive milk for a long time.

https://www.theguardian.com/environm...emark-her-name
The climate activist Greta Thunberg has said she has applied to register her name and that of the Fridays For Future movement she founded in 2018, which has gone global and catapulted her to international fame.

The move would allow legal action against persons or companies trying to use her name which are not in line with her values or that of her movement, she said.
Not much to do with Milk but did amuse me.

In fairness, the Hindenburg did manage to lose a *lot* of weight in a very short time.

I do have a bit of a temper sometimes, but I'm not that explosive.
