    So as many of you know, I was getting very sassy the remaining week or so of my pregnancy, due in large part, to the irritating and 'unproductive' contractions I was having every 5 minutes. Maggie was due on 11/24/2009, which came and went without any fanfare. I had a 9:45 appointment on...

    I'm trying to find out whether it's worth buying a pig or a cow for meat and then having it processed. I try to find good deals at the stores and normally wait until the meat is getting close to its expiration so it will be marked down. My inlaws had given us some hamburger meat that they had...
