Go ahead and sock her a good one.

As for Facebook, I don't understand the problems people have with it. If I don't want to read something I just don't (Like posts from my religious friends. I skip most of what they say).
And if I post on my Facebook wall that I had fried cheese for supper, watched a movie, have an earache, and then post yet another pic of my cat, that's my choice. People can read it or not. And Mark Zuckerberg can spread it all over the universe if he wants. It's a social network. If I wanted to be private and unsociable, I wouldn't be on Facebook.
I don't consider it much different than here at NC.

How does one know they're being obnoxious on FB? I try to keep it light and happy most of the time, posting about junk we've done and since I love cooking I'll post things about that. I also try not to vague-book because that is just assanine in most situations.

Is there a website for signs one can look for so they don't become "that person"?

^I think the bottom line is we're all annoying. Threads here about FB list pretty much every behavior under the sun as obnoxious.

I am so excited! Finally got my fresh meat from the farm. And soon, there will be raw milk. I can't wait. Yay!

Ruralcurls, that's great! You might not like the raw milk. It's too grassy for a lot of people. Plus I don't feel great from a safety standpoint drinking it.
You should definitely make cheese and other dairy products with it, though! You can make ricotta in five minutes, with the microwave! And fresh mozzarella is easy, too.

Wow, mommyjacking, MLK edition:

Such a good point. I even annoy myself sometimes, but I gotta be me! I won't apologize for being happy (blame the walnuts).

Thanks, Saria. Now I know what to expect. She started telling me about making butter and cheese and my eyes glazed over. I will check more into the safety issue.

If people are allowed to say whatever they want, or post whatever they want, from what they ate for dinner, to song lyrics, (and I feel they are allowed to do so) on FB then conversely someone is just as allowed to not read it, not engage, or not have a FB at all. If one is okay, then surely the others are too.

And whatever reason for doing so isn't necessarily up for argument. Live and let live.

Even the lightly pasteurized (I forget the actual term) milk that we buy from our farm market tastes a lot grassier than its supermarket counterpart. I've gotten used to and prefer it now though.

It's pasteurized as opposed to ultra-pasteurized, which is mostly done with cream, but also with milk. At least you can still get pasteurized milk at the supermarket, whereas cream that isn't ultra-pasteurized is just about impossible to find.
Milk at the market is also usually unhomogenized.

Somehow I don't think freezing cut, unbaked biscuits is the subject of that much contention.
(I'd wager that autocorrect tried to fix "definately", though mine definitely doesn't change it to defiantly.)

Mr. Spring said he was going to make biscuits this weekend. I guffawed at him in the grocery...YES, guffawed.

I just don't see it happening.

I don't think our supermarkets have just pasteurized. What I meant by counterpart was organic milk from the supermarket. I think they have Horizon brand at the stores here, which I'm pretty sure is ultra pasteurized. Either way, I feel very fortunate to have access to high quality and a pretty good variety of local products.
