    Cast Iron Piggy Bank

    I purchased on like that from a general store in Oklahoma a few years back. It was painted though. I run across them everynow and then as they are still produced. I loved it, brought it home to my wife, and she hated it so she gave it away. I think I paid 19.00 for it.

    I view stocks very similiar to viewing any sporting team. Buy when the stocks are doing well. i.e. A team that is on a roll is more likely to continue doing well. A team that has all the right parts but for some reason isnt doing well will most likely miss the playoffs that year. (so to speak).

    Making hamburger better

    Better as in flavor only? Do you still have to retain the lean quality? -Add a bit off ground pork or pork sausage if you are not worried about the "lean factor".

    I know it is a bit off the subject, but could somebody go through the economics of the direct sales market? i.e. from calf to butcher to consumer. Just curious how the numbers look. Thanks in advance.
