Oh OZ you are crazier than I am and I thought I was bad ;-) Poor Bernie, maybe he thought it wouldn't be good with the leg problem? I eat most of mine, but if I'm not sure the cause of the problem I'd rather be safe than sorry. Almost no one else I know does their own meat. Most people go 'oh how could you! I couldn't do that...' and I"m thinking if you were born 100 yrs ago you darn sure would be!
