Good news, everyone!

The price of eggs is edging down!

Not in the crappy little town nearest where I live, of course. That’s been $7.50/dozen for months now. But in the Palace of Food in the biggish town about 35 miles away, it’s down to $6.50/18, which is substantially cheaper less obscenely expensive than this time last month.

You probably already knew that. I just learned it today.

I kept laying hens for so long that eggs became an essential part of my diet. I picked the wrong year to stop keeping laying hens. But today I learned that maybe the price – in non-captive markets, at least – may be headed in the right direction at last.

    Is it a bad thing that I can’t read the blog post title without hearing Professor Hubert J. Farnsworth’s voice?
    It’s good news, indeed!

    Wow, and I thought eggs were expensive here in the great white north. I guess nobody ever told the retailers where you are that in sales, the object is to shear the sheep, not skin them alive.

    $3.28 a dozen in Klamath Falls, OR. Down a lot from the peak.

To the stake with the heretic!
