I like cow. It's one of the best things on the planet. I not only like the beef but all the other wonderful products we get from cows. Milk and cheese rank right up there. And then there's the leather factor. I have to say that through my lifetime I have owned many a product made from cowhide, and have been very satisfied with them.

There's some argument about what day is National Cow Appreciation Day. Chick-fil-A says it's July 8th. Other places say July 10th, 15th, and the 18th. I think we should just make July National Cow Appreciation Month.

In case you are wondering why this has all come up just now - I have a friend who recently bought a cow with a number of coworkers. They purchased this cow from a cattle farmer in the Shenandoah Valley who raise grass fed beef (rotational grazing; no hormones, no antibiotics) and had it slaughtered by a local butcher. He supplied me with 3-4 packages of ground round, 2-3 steaks, and some stew beef. To say the least it has been almost a spiritual experience for me. I love beef but this is the most wonderful beef I have ever had.
