I've studied a lot of rocks that happen to be around grazing cows in the Appalachians, Rockies, Alps, Pyrenees and Scottish Highlands. It has always struck me that European cows look and act more intelligent, following you and trying to figure out what you are doing, with a look in their eyes saying - you know those are just rocks, don't you. North American calves are similarly inquisitive, but cows tend to have a blank look in their eyes - inflammatory brain fog from the portions of the year they are on modified grains?

Bob-- can u share any brand names for the cheeses. Im batting zero so far-- all domestic cheeses so far.

Though last night I put some time into thinking of better options to increase my chances of successfully finding better cheeses-- and remembered there is a cheese shop about 20 minutes away. Figure I wont be able to leave such a shop with out dropping 30-50$, so need to plan ahead for that excursion.

See if you can find any with raw milk
In high school I worked at Hickery Farms in the mall. In those days they were truly a cheese shop with probably 30-40 cheeses and we were encouraged to sample all of them. I remember the light bulb moment when I realized that after sampling all of the different flavors every day I worked, I was not hungry after work. Then I realized that I was loosing weight and I was not fat then at all. So that was the dawning of wondering why when I thought I would gain, not loose.

You don't need much so just buy a 1/4 a lb of a couple of types and try them. It's the different flavors that satisfy the taste buds with less in quantity and more in quality.

KerryGold (various), Castello (Havarti), Mull of Kyntire (delightful mature cheddar sometimes with calcium crunches), Top Hat (cheddar), Joan of Arc (brie), Boar's Head has an imported Parmesan, and a few others that aren't in our refrigerator right now and sorry, I can't recall the brands. I'll probably remember later in the day when the computer is off.

I find them in the deli section of our Publix grocery stores, not in the regular dairy section. There is a lot of domestic cheese in that case too, sometimes with European sounding names, so I have to check the labels to make sure they are imported.

There is a cheese shop in a city about 15 miles north of us, and if I have a reason to go to that town, I'll often bring a small ice chest and see what they have to offer.

It's so nice to be able to share cheese with my beautiful wife again, and it's great to know she is getting the calcium she needs for her maturing body.

Bob
