Why not find out where your milk comes from


by Larry Geller

I don’t know why, but for some reason no one wants you to know where your milk is from. The carton doesn’t say. Instead it is coded into a number somewhere so you won’t find out.

Since we live in the information age and there is a website for everything, why not one that will tell you where your milk comes from.

It’s called Where Is My Milk From? and helps you locate the secret code on your milk carton that reveals all, and then it decodes it and even displays a map.

I just checked it with Costco organic milk and Safeway buttermilk. Works as advertised.

Not that I really cared, of course, but it’s Friday and I’m tired of trying to figure out what’s happening at the Legislature. There are more important things to do in life, though finding out where your milk comes from may not be too high up on the list either…
