I don't like SPAM either but figure if I get hungry enough I would eat it..

We are buying lots of food..I used some of the freeze dried hamburger meat during Thanksgiving since I had lots of guest that spent time with us after Thanksgiving..Anyway it really taste like fresh cooked hamburger meat..Very tasty..I have to replace that one and buy more..
we are well prepared but will get more..We have plenty of protection for the whole family and I don’t mean condoms..
