I like, I don’t like…or Who wants Bacon?!!!

I like Bacon…

I don’t approve of mass market killing of pigs

I like Eggs…

I don’t like male chicks being sacrificed to the blades of convenient death

I like Beef…

I don’t approve of fear of death before dying

I like Sheep…

And have not eaten sheep since the age of 19 

I like fish especially salmon…

I buy my fish at the supermarket cleaned, scaled and ready for steaming in my pan

I like hot dogs, uncured, Nathan’s or Grey Papaya…

I don’t like the video I saw with Snoop Dog on the making of hot dogs

I like Milk…

I don’t like the milk industry, hormones and separating calfs from their feeding source for veal on someone’s plate at an Italian restaurant

I love Oysters…

Umm…oysters don’t feel do they?

I love shrimp, lobster and crab…

Unfortunately, at the age of 40 my body decided not to like them.

I like Bourbon…

Bourbon does not like me because I abuse it

I like wine: Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc,Cabernet and Merlot…

Wine does not like me since I started abusing it

I like writing, playing piano and researching on the web…

Writing keeps slapping me in the face, the piano gives me dirty looks since I won’t touch her and the web is laughing at me because I’m blindly searching through loads of crap

“Where’s the Beef?…or “No More Moo”

“Where’s the Beef?”

Oh boy do I remember those Wendy’s commercials of the 80”s. Truth be told, I wasn’t a big Wendy’s fan. Burger King and White Castles were my favs. Whopper Jr with onion rings or 4 White Castle burgers with fries.

Hebrew National Hotdogs, cheese, milk, sour cream, yogurt and yes…CHOCOLATE are/were my favs.

Until a dear friend, whom I consider my niece, did a horrible thing.

She posted THIS, yes THIS, on my FB page.  (Caution for empaths or those who love animals-this is brutal!)    *THIS*

Initially, I did not look at it but I had trouble sleeping that night and reached for my phone to check out FB and there it was. I viewed the video and cried me a river.giphy

No living sentient being deserves this treatment!!

I know.

My inner critic said, “Wake up and start living in the real world! This happens all the time and not just to animals-People suffer too!”  milk

The world will not be controlled and rendered civilized just from the prayers I send to HIM and I for one, cannot change the world-heck I have trouble changing my scrubs!

What I can do is change myself.

Not outsiders.

Just me.

Currently, I consume two kinds of meat: Cow and Pig.

At this moment, in the present, I do not eat cow or anything that comes from a cow. Eventually I will abstain from buying leather goods (thankfully, I found a non-leather shoe store).baby.jpg

Hopefully and God willing, I’ll be able to move onto eliminating pig, turkey, chicken and so forth.

But…

It must be done slowly and with careful planning and gradually till the change is not a change but an everyday norm.imgres

It’s what I need to do to make a difference even if there really is no difference on the grand scale of things. It’s out of respect for the wonderful animals we have on this planet.
