When the Zombies come, Iím gonna get et.

I like watching the Nutrition Forum evolve. We went through a period of Potato Feasting/Fasting. Now weíre doing Steak and Eggs. Whatís next; Steak and Potatoes? Hey, thatís what I eat. Weíre evolving to how people ate in the 50s.
Okay, I have a math question. I solved it by trial and error and I was lucky because my first ratio try was so close that I didnít need to keep going, but Iím wondering if there was an easy equation I could have used. I feel like I need to exercise my brain more because this feels like something I might have solved easily 20 years ago. Okay, hereís the question.
I have some ground beef thatís 98% lean. I also have some that is 68% lean. So, my question is if I wanted ground beef thatís 93% lean, how much of each should I use?
Since I generally make six ounce patties to freeze, I lucked out. It turns out that five ounces of the 98% to one ounce of the 68% gives me a blend of 92.6% which, of course is fine. But I still think I should have come up with a way to do this that wasnít, ďstart with a guess, then go from there.Ē Can anyone help me?
Motherís Day is Sunday. Which means itís the one Sunday each year that the cemeteries here are open. I think Iíll go check it out.
After 30+ years of selling us the cheapest lips and assholes in casings, Oscar Meyer now is advertising an Angus hot dog with no gluten or artificial ingredients. Hang on, let me grab my ankles while you try to sell me your new consciousness.
Doc and Sea were discussing loud roosters in his journal the other day, and it reminded me of the keeper I knew at a childrenís zoo at which I volunteered. Part of his pay was a little one bedroom cottage right in childrenís zoo. Near the chickens. Part of his job was to, once a month, pick a chicken or rooster to throw into the coyote enclosure so those animals would retain their hunting instinct. When he had a particularly loud rooster, his decision that month was an easy one.
So, I spend a lot of time reading these forums, and Iíve noticed some things that have led me to a disturbing conclusion. Doc and Bloodorchid grow stuff, Gwamma has a farm, Doc and Sea hunt. IOW, all these people have useful skills come the Zombie apocalypse. I freakiní do accounting. Conclusion: When the Zombies come, Iím gonna get et. LOL.
