A better ketchup bottle made of plastic? No. We are not stupid. More plastic? Our families are buying as much food in glass instead of plastic. Food in our pantry is stored in glass. Food stored in plastic is iffy. Why do we want more plastic? How long has prepared foods been sitting in plastic? How safe is it? Food in glass may be more costly but safer in our eyes.
It’s that time again. Fireworks will once more fill the atmosphere with particulate matter and numerous heavy metals to be inhaled by human and non-human alike. These ‘delightful’ aerial displays rain down billions of plastic pieces to pollute our waterways and soil year after year. Let alone the noise pollution. Something to think about on this Fourth of July. Please inform your family, friends and community of the toxic and environmental dangers of fireworks. Fireworks are deadly for numerous reasons. There are safer alternatives. Just say no to fireworks.

I have been drinking kefir for the past six or seven years upon the advice of our traditional Chinese medicine doctor. It has definitely improved my gut health. After listening to this podcast and further reading of the health benefits of kefir I thought kefir needed to be explored by more people as a possible addition to their diet.
Read about the adverse effects of kefir which may affect a few individuals before talking the gulp. The flavored ones contain a lot of sugar and I avoid them. The plain flavor can be an acquired taste but I enjoy the tangy pop. Found goat milk kefir nearby and hope to return to it soon. **
**I am not in the medical or nutritional field so my comments should be taken with a gulp of kefir if you are so brave.
(Chuckling Goats was even contacted by the producers of the wonderful soap The Archers for advice on kefir.)
USers will spend eight billion dollars this year on Halloween. Spend half that much by making your own costume and painting your face. Send the other half to an agency that helps the less fortunate. Your pet does not need a costume. Instead let them wear an orange and black break-away ribbon to show their support and yours for all the pets locked up in shelters. Send the costume money saved to your local animal shelter. More money can be saved by creating your own healthy treats. The money may not be yours but it will be money saved in the future in medical costs by giving the kids something besides several pounds of sugar which they do not need. If we thought as much of others as we thought of ourselves what a difference it would make. Have a wonderful Halloween.
If Taco Bell wants to give “every” USer in USerland a taco for each World Series stolen base what kind of taco will they give vegetarians and vegans? Since I do not visit fast food franchises will they send my taco to my home? Will it be warm? Since I do not eat such crap can I ask that my free taco be sent to a kitchen that feeds those in need? Come on Taco Bell, make an offer that will benefit someone other than the overfed populous of our overweight country. And… the offer lasts “until supplies last”. Supplies of tacos? Supplies of citizens? If you say “every” that means ALL. Taco Bell sounds like a typical politician. They say one thing but mean something entirely different. Is that a misdirection or a falsehood? I am not voting for Taco Bell.
