Callie's Cancer

Callie's Cancer
Callie is a very dear member of our family.  She is a person who just happens to be a 14-year-old cat.  She plays a very prominent role in the family.  She supervises household work.  She loves (demands) loving time which includes being carried around the house lying on her back in my arms like a baby while petting my face with her paw.  She assumes the responsibility of alpha cat, keeping the boys; BJ and Blue-Eyes (also cats) in line with nothing more than a look.  Nothing more is needed, however, as she has everyone's unfailing respect. On June 6, 2016, we took Callie to an internal medicine specialist due to a steep decline in health.  Over the previous...

Be Careful What You Pray For!

Be Careful What You Pray For!
A few years ago my wife and I was held over in an airport due to weather canceling our flight. This was disruptive for a lot of people, creating a very crowded, stagnant atmosphere. After having investigated every square inch of the airport; every shop, magazine stand, building architecture, etc., and boredom just beginning to set in, we were approached by a young lady. Her approach made me feel uneasy as she seemed over determined, much like a classic door-to-door solicitor. She started asking me all kinds of questions. I started to feel like I was being interviewed. As it progressed, it felt more like an interrogation. Eventually, she asked what I was listening to. I get that question a lo...

Help! I'm married to a meat-eater!

Help!  I'm married to a meat-eater!
Actually, I'm grateful to be able to say, I personally am NOT married to a meat-eater.  My hubby willingly went vegan along with me, almost 30 years ago.  However, I have often been asked that question by both men & women.    Usually what has happened, is that the couple married when both were still eating the SAD, and then one of them finds the Vegan Advantage.  It has often come as quite a shock when the spouse refuses to embrace it too. Has this been part of your experience? If yes, how did you handle it?
