Wednesday March 3, 2004. Yesterday: Four pounds of chicken leg quarters had been included in the Fare For All package. I used them to make chicken soup, along with carrots, onion, and cabbage. Ate some of the souped chicken, took meat off the rest of the bones.

And it's likely the last time I'll ever make that large a batch of soup.

Today: I'm able to wear shirts one size smaller than when I started trying to lose weight.

To Pillsbury House, where I did data entry for the Community Barter Network.

With the bus strike looming, I did grocery shopping which otherwise would've waited a couple of days.

***Writing: Did more revision on "Well Met...." I think this is the final shape, and I can go ahead on actually setting down the story events.

Freeze-dried sperm can fertilize rabbit oocytes
A team of reproductive scientists has successfully used "dead" freeze-dried sperm to fertilize rabbit oocytes--the first time that this has been accomplished with an animal whose sperm share many similarities to human sperm. The results suggest that freeze-drying could be used to store sperm from humans and other animals for extended periods at room temperatures.

DNA chip will catch beefed up chicken
How can you tell if your chicken has been bulked up with beef or pork waste? And how can we ensure that companies aren't risking spreading mad cow disease by adding illegal animal remains to cattle feed. These questions can now be answered by a food ID chip which has been developed in France to ensure meat products are what they say they are and don't contain anything they shouldn't.
