Jerky

Everyone has seen Slim Jims at the store. All the convenience stores carry Slim Jims and one or two other brands of beef jerky.

So I read about other kinds of jerky and had no idea that in other parts of the country there are different jerkies. For example, in the west, you can buy buffalo jerky or bison jerky. I wonder if that jerky tastes like the Slim Jim made from beef jerky?

In the southwest, you can buy jerky made from rattlesnake. I had no idea that people were harvesting rattlesnakes and using their meat for commercial purposes. I wonder it it tastes good?

Redbox

Times are getting tough for everyone and one way that I’ve been able to cut back on my spending is by renting movies at Redbox for $1 a night instead of buying the movies at Wal Mart for about $20. At least the new releases seem to run real close to $20. Sometimes you can catch good movies on sale for about $9 or $10, but that is still a lot more than the $1 from Redbox.

I just realized this year that I don’t have to own every movie that I watch. It is OK to rent a movie and take it back the next day. If I see a movie that I realy like, then I’ll buy if I can find it on sale.
