So, to whom does this apply?

“Carnival, or Fat Tuesday – for centuries also known as Mardi Gras – is traditionally a time to feast on the last bits of meat at home before Lent, when people give up a favorite food. Meat is often chosen for this observance, reflected in the word Carnival, from the Latin carne vale, or “farewell to meat.” This week, we showcase tasty meatless Mardi Gras recipes so you can go lean during Lent, and every Monday thereafter!

Though Americans make up only five percent of the world's population, we consume 15 percent of the world's meat, and the meat industry generates a staggering one-fifth of greenhouse gas emissions worldwide.
The Benefits of Eating Less Meat
If you eat less meat, you consume less saturated fat, which lowers your risk of heart disease and keeps cholesterol low.
As an added bonus, it helps you maintain a healthy weight, and automatically adds more vegetable variety to your diet, thereby increasing the amount of nutrients you consume. On a larger scale, eating less meat will cut down on water usage and our dependence on fossil fuels used in factory farming.”
Today, Ray and I were sorting stuff out in the storeroom.  I needed to get the minivan’s third seat, a bench seat, out of my antique motor home into my store room.  I took it out when I bought the minivan as I need that space in the back for hauling stuff.

It really is time I sold that vintage motor home, "Pugsy", as I’ll never drive it again.Pugsy 1st.Sep.2008 001 (Small)[1]
A lot of stuff was taken up into that attic, some ditched, and some put with the yard sale stuff.  Jay was supposed to be here, and so I drove down and got him, as that third seat is heavy.  When we got it out of “Pugsy” (the old MH), Jay shampooed the seat before we put it in the store room.  I don’t need the seat, but one day a new owner might want it.

A nice day, no rain, but still a ‘coat day”.

Why Penny, you don't think we would say anything bad about you, do you???? But you know an open ended comment like that might make the guilty feel guilty.
