Thanks Jill:)
You can adopt a turkey instead of eating one...
Ellen Degeneres is the spoke person to an amazing sanctuary which, with a low amount of money, will offer protection and care to your turkey for the rest of his life...
Now, that's the true spirit of Thanksgiving to me:)

I adopted a turkey last year at the cost of $ 40.00 I recall off the top of my head. I do not eat my friends. All lives matter, as we treasure our own. All have a right to live life as they are intented too. Thanks Jill.

If only people would understand that eating animals is not good for you, and its taking someone life away, someone who wants to live!!

Thank you Jill. My sentiment is that I do not eat anything that smiles, that includes every being on this earth. Veggies and fruit are my preference and I feel fantastic.

I saw this on PBS this week. It is a very interesting program. It had some sad parts. Watch it if you have a chance.

My husband happened to tune into this documentary the other night on PBS and I saw quite a bit of it. He was impressed and recommended it to his friends.

Loreto V. - If you are invited to eat a turkey and say "no", you can educate others.

Colleen - You obviously never saw the old National Beer ads. The clam smiles.

Thank you Jill! I saw this one TV and was thinking NO WAY AM I having TURKEY at all! Actually, love salads, but did enjoy Turkey, after I saw the baby turkeys and the guy, I was a gonner and never to have Turkey meat again..Maybe it was on PBS...This guy raised a ton of baby turkeys and when they were talking my rescue was going nutty, thus I turned off the sound, but was totally interested!
