First of all, I have a keyboard that is not functioning correctly. I don't have spell check on the e-mail system I use.
Secondly, i don't understand why you put that little silly icon on your reply about zipping up about my comment about eating chopped up cow. i think it is disgusting, a personal opinion to be sure. There are just too many examples of e-coli associated with ground up meat When one eats a steak or other intact meat, anything in terms of e-coli on the surface gets killed by the heat.
I also have issues with animals being raised inhumanely, standing in feed lots up to their knees in their own waste, eating other animals, antibiotics, growth hormones and god knows what else in their feed. If you choose to eat that type of meat, that is your choice. If I am going to take the life of an animal for food I want to make sure it had a good life right up until it is processed.
The other interconnected issue is the idea of eating close to home, as it were, eating food grown and produced locally, preferably organically. I am much more interested in buying beef from pe3ople I know who raise it on organic pastureland on their farm in western Minnesota than getting the cheapest chemical laden stuff from cattle that are mass prohduced.
The beef tastes a lot better in addition to doing the right thing in terms of supporting local producers.
Yes, I will forgo those burgers, actually any burgersu, but escecially those produced from cattle grown on clear cut rainforest land, which is where a lot of the big fast food chains get their beef.
Think globally, act locally.

Although I relish a good steak, I only eat organic, grass fed beef that is humanely raised and processed, nd I draw the line at eating chopped up cow from any source. Something about ground meat that gets me. I feel if you are going to eat meat it shouldn't be a passive thing, one should give thought about where it comes from, and the animal who gave it's life for the meat. Grinding it all up so it is unrocognizable somehow seems disrespectful. That is just my way of approaching things, not rant at those of you out there who DO eat hamburgers. I just can't speak of their burgers.
What I like about DQ is the fact that it still has ties to it's southern roots; specifically the fact that one can get *pecans* on one's hot fudge sundae! Yum! Tht is the onlyq thing I eat at DQ. I imagine on the long road trip I will be leaving on I will have a DQ sundae or two.
From what i have seen, the other food looks pretty decent.
We have one of the original DQ's here in Minneapolis at 60th and Penn Av. S., near the airport. It is the original architecture; no bathroom, and just big enough to go in and get your food. People from the corporate offices, when passing through town make aa detour to see the wonderfullay maintained originaal buillding.
OOPS>>>> Spell check time. As for comments regarding "eating chopped up cow" I shall be
