Thrips anyone?

Managing Real Estate Broker with Fathom Realty PB00068179


Thrips anyone?

This is a continuation of my series of things most people don’t know about our food supply.   This being Thanksgiving day you really didn’t think I could pass this one up did you?

According to my research these are items, things etc the FDA allows in our food supply.  You may check it out yourselves to verification.

Thrips are small slender, winged insects.  They are also known as thunderflies and thunderlights.  They have their favorite food supply which in this case is asparagus and hops used to make beer.  For each canned asparagus there can be no more than 40 of these per 100 grams.  Hey it’s free protein enjoy.

Now go out and tell the world of your new found knowledge.  Smile it will make people wonder what you’ve been up to.  Join us tomorrow for another journey into the wonderful world of Wordsmith.  Click on the link below.  Who knows you may learn something along the way and some of the words may even bring a smile to your face.   Wise Custom Realty is hiring in AR., PA., MO., CO., and OK. call me for details.

This is what you get for eating canned asparagus. Thrips. Who would eat canned asparagus anyway? Happy Thanksgiving, James!
