Pssst! Got a sec to chat?

We are utterly thrilled when readers want to hang out and talk – whether it's amongst themselves or in response to pieces we've posted. We want Eatocracy to be a cozy, spirited online home for those who find their way here.

Consider the weekly Coffee Klatsch post as your VIP lounge – the primary comments thread for readers who'd like to chat about topics not related to the articles we're running. That way, everyone knows where to find each other, and each post's comments section remains on topic.

You can always find it from the link in the left rail, or by bookmarking http://eatocracy.cnn.com/category/buzz/coffee-klatsch/.

    Good day!

    We had a warm front (I think I brought the weather from Portland back with me, but it took several days to catch up)... but we're going back. Mid 30's, rain possibly turning into snow...

    Ah upstate NY.

    No major plans for the weekend, unless my housemate J decides to have his birthday dinner out to the sushi buffet on Sunday (his bday is Monday, but he's got a meeting that night, so we're going out either Sunday or Tuesday).

    Other than that... I'm in for cleaning/laundry/and unpacking.

      Haven't they been playing like the Buffalo Bills? (I have a friend who's like me... supports the home team. I'm in NY, he's outside of Houston.)

  3. Jerv-have a great weekend all.

    If you can't get to the link, it is an article at Businessweek.com titled "The Truth About Pork and How America Feeds Itself." Eye opener.

      Good read.
      The production statistics are hard to fathom. Every day 10,500 hogs are rounded up, probably from several states, by rail and truck to feed this processing plant. Shades of soylent green, man. But then again, that's a lot of bacon!

    Okay, I feel for all y'all in the single digits, BUT, for an ex-SoCal boy, this 16*s is way too frickin' cold! At least it's dry-for now.
