More Yogurt Reviews

I'm always trying new yogurts when they come on sale, and this week I tried "Pure" by Dannon. I was impressed that all the ingredients are normal ingredients.

I was even more impressed with the taste and the whole-milk-yogurt cream feel. It eats like pudding.

My first thought was "Wow. That's good." My second thought was, "Wait, where is that 'yogurt' flavor? This tastes like cream." Like a delicious. sweet, thick, rich strawberry cream. SO yummy.

Sure enough, there is no mention anywhere on the package of yogurt cultures. Not only no live active cultures. None at all. Not even in the ingredients.

They have made a fantastic treat with Dannon Pure. But it's not yogurt. I'm not sure how they are justifying calling it that.

"The advantage Wal-mart has over those stores is that it can make up for any losses it takes in the food isles in higher margin departments like apparel."

Are the food isles in the Pacific? Atlantic? Great Lakes?

Bald hair. I love it.

"Racist Hunger Games fans disappointed at the box office. "

The non-racist fans were okay with it, though.

"SEAN HANNITY, HOST: Michelle Obama sat down with David Letterman for an interview that will air later tonight on CBS, which is highly unusual, especially considering the vial comments that the host made about Governor Palin's daughter back in 2009."

Apparently making comments about vials--perhaps vials of perfume?--is vile.

Elijah says....

Elijah (16 mo old) was listening to Nathie watching "The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh." A song came on that referred to "the quick-thinking, unshrinking Pooh Bear" (or something like that).

Almost immediately Elijah began singing at the top of his voice--"aaah, aaaah, aahh  Hoo Raaar!"

I guess that works, Pooh sounds like "Hoo," which is Elijah's word for "owl" (and they do talk a lot about Owl in that video). And "raaar!" is Elijah's word for "bear."

Now I'm wondering what he thinks that song is owl bear?

I don't know--are you sure an unconscious house cleaner won't do? They're much quieter.

"Tim Barter, 32, from the U.K., fell 25 feet when a drainpipe collapsed beneath him and slipped into a coma for 10 days."

Drat those drainpipe comas. They cause all kinds of grief.
