...got milk?

I ran short yesterday, an it was a first. Even at my advanced years I love to drink it, although at this stage of the game it is of the fat free variety. The exact components of raw milk vary by species, but it contains significant amounts of saturated fat,unless it is fat free, protein and calcium as well as vitamin C. Cow's milk has a pH ranging from 6.4 to 6.8, making it slightly acidic. Adding chocolate to it makes it slightly yummier. On this day in 1878 milk was first delivered in bottles. A teen aged Joan Rivers was standing at her front door when the first milk delivery truck pulled up. Without milk, we would also be without cream, butter, yogurt, kefir, ice cream, and especially the more durable and easily transportable product, cheese. Kefir, by the way, is a fermented milk drink. Thanks but no thanks. I will now give credit where credit is due. The "Got Milk?" campaign was designed and implemented by the ad agency "Goodby Silverstein & Partners" for the California Milk Processor Board in 1993.
