But don't rely on that.
I remember hearing stories on that....Grandpa, the dairy farmer called it "axle grease"

We like REAL BUTTER here in the dairy state. My grandpa was a farmer and died at 93 , and he ate a lot of butter, drank whole milk, ate eggs everyday, etc.

And I NEVER beat him at arm wrestling.........

Besides, how do you expect me to take you seriously with a Packer in your avatar?
I love butter too, but there are some margarines out there that are just as good and are better for you. It's not the oleo of the 60's
Not just a Packer. Brett Favre. Do you know who he is?

What is this crap! I remember my Dad telling me it was homemade butter from the people across the road(their cow pasture adjoined our driveway (a great football field with a fresh cow pie being as good a pulling guard).

SW Washington - grew up on margarine. Took years before I could stand the taste of butter - in spite of 'I can't believe it's not butter..'

I am trying some generic no name no trans fat stuff - it don't melt right either.

heh heh heh - when I was out of college - in my 'high class' phase I ate it(real butter) even though I didn't like it. Caviar tastes like crap too! Now a Moon Pie and an RC Cola -
