Quotes of the Day for 18 March 2004 – Food Month

This is International Hamburger and Pickle Month, to which I can relate, not to mention National Frozen Food Month, which I've heard mentioned in radio commercials. But wait, there's more! It's also National Peanut Month, and I guess to wrap that all up in one good cause, it's National Nutrition Month. After we focus on all that great stuff that goes into our mouths, we can't just forget it as if it stops there, so this is also Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month. I won't be observing that last entry, but I do have some quotes on Food.
