Olive oil – the real deal

4 Comments

olive oil2Italy has been waging a war on fake olive oils with limited success but I came across some information that may be helpful to consumers to ensure we’re getting certified genuine extra virgin olive oil – not a facsimile that has been diluted with canola oil or who knows what else. Check out this website to bring yourself up to speed on the real deal. http://truthinoliveoil.com/. You can’t always trust labelling – quelle surprise! You’re welcome.olive oil1

Here’s another writeup on the issue:

As an early Baby Boomer, born in 1947, it seems to me that as we approach our retirement years, Boomers have gone from being the energy driving our nation to slowly becoming invisible. We risk losing our identity as society remains stubbornly youth-centric. And the irony is that Gen Xers and Ys are not the majority; we are. BOOMERBROADcast is my platform for being the voice of Baby Boomers, women in particular. We've generated a lot of changes over the decades but there's still a long way to go. After a 40-year career in the corporate world, I've taken up expressing the observations and concerns of our generation. Instead of pounding the pavement in my bellbottoms with a cardboard sign, I'm pounding my laptop (I learned to type on a manual typewriter and old habits die hard). If you have issues or concerns you would like voiced or have comments on what I've voiced, I'd love to hear from you. We started breaking the rules in the sixties and now that we're in our sixties it's no time to become complacent. Hope you'll stay tuned and if you like BOOMERBROADcast, share it with your friends.

  1. Another buyer beware product….. anything that looks like a duck, walks like a duck. quacks like a duck should be a duck….. including something as simple as pure “extra virgin” olive oil where the name alone gives the impression of purity.

  2. The book Virginity recommended on the blog you suggested is an excellent book.
