It's a small world...

Here is something that really brought home ot me just how small the world we live in is --

The financial crash in Iceland has made it difficult for seafood processors in Canada to get credit they need which has caused the price Maine lobstermen get for their catch, a large part of which goes to those processors, to fall dramatically. How dramatically? Right now, those of us who live on the coast and can buy from local lobstermen can buy lobster cheaper than steak!

Which has meant that last weekend and this weekend we have eaten lobster -- whereas usually we do so only a couple of times a year. Friday my husband bought lobsters, around 1.25 lb. a piece, for $4.00 each.

Dinner last night ---
