I gave up eating fish 36 years ago so no problem there.

Well-another lie bites the dust. I quit eating meat over a year ago. I occasionally eat fish or I guess now-I won't be eating fish again. I still have eggs from my happy pet chickens from time to time-but who knows if the food they eat besides the insects, etc. they scratch up is even good for them. I sure hope my organic garden does really, really good this year. Sigh.......

We must never eat sentient beings, thereby saving trees, buffalo, waters, soils, air balances, all life and Mother Earth herself....... and use as little electricity as possible so as to reduce mercury and other emissions from coal! We also must use very little water. How can we not be veg'n, when we have access now to the most delicious dishes that are ethically sources and organic, than ever before?
