Why US milk is BANNED from ALL of Europe. The truth about our beef. | Care2 Share

Returned to rice milk. Don’t know why I stopped drinking it. The government states that cattle can be labeled as grass fed if they are on grass 99% of their lives. The remaining 1% can be filled with hormones. Be absolutely sure you know where your beef came from and how it was raised. The number one cause of cardiovascular problems is the consumption of non-grass fed beef.

Hope you had a great "Encounter Day".

We need to rename “Columbus Day”. The decimation of millions of “Native Americans” is blamed on several European countries. The results of those visits could have been caused by any nation at an earlier time or later time. Columbus Day could be called “New World Day” if the Vikings and the unknown Oriental cultural that preceded them are equally celebrated. But then New World may be incorrect. Considering the numerous advances in the “western” hemisphere at the time Europeans arrived, the question is, which hemisphere should be considered the “New World”. Perhaps “Encounter Day” would be a better choice.  

One year ago, in Amsterdam’s Central Train Station awaiting a Thaly’s train to Brussels.

Where the Heck….?

…have I been? I have been floating rudderless the last several months. The loss of Freda in November really knocked the wind out of my sails. Then came the holidays. Then during January and February we planned a two week whirl wind trip to Europe and London during March.

Everyone has a video of tour Eiffel right way round.

Upon our return we spent two weeks recovering from colds and jet lag. Oh what fun.

And we had a great visit from the kids and sweet Tule…


Beautiful Tule…

After all that excitement, we began a search for a new family member. We found Graeme, aka Frank, alas, it was not to be. Two days after he adopted us it was found that he had a very serious illness and we had to return him to the shelter. We did get him meds for his kennel cough but his prognosis turned out to be very discouraging.


He is a wonderful friend.

He is now in rescue getting the daily if not several times a day care and treatment we could not give him. We feel he is getting much better care than we could have given him but I feel we failed him miserably. He is so handsome and gentle. Another hard decision to be made. Don’t how the Decider did it.

Mañana we will visit another pup who wants to check us out for adoption. She is a senior lady of Sheltie ancestry. We are hoping that she will like us enough to accept us into her family.

P.S. More photos and videos of our trip will appear in later posts, if anyone would like to see them.
