  1. Love the chick and chicken pis.
    I have an idea for a blog. What do you need to buy from the store?
    Are you snowed in yet?

  2. Excellent question indeed. I've wondered the same. For example, in shows like "Alaska, The Last Frontier", family members may spend hundreds and hundreds of dollars on gear and an airplane flight, and spends days away from home to fly to a small island and harvest one small deer. (Yes...it's just a TV show, but let's look at it academically). The money invested makes that 30 pounds of venison awful expensive.

    Thanks for the article, Patrice! Helps me think through the logic.
