Mystery Meat

Mike Adams' NaturalNews.com is a terrific site with tons of useful information about leading a natural, healthy life. A picture is worth a thousand words, and last night I stumbled upon this photo tour that really says it all. While my dear clients and students have all been able to withstand my puker workouts, I had a hard time keeping down my organic romaine lettuce while viewing Mystery Meat Macrophotography.

A picture is worth a thousand swings. Go do it. Let it all out.

Urgent! Please Help Iowa Pigs!

The Farm Sanctuary has mounted a massive rescue operation to save Iowa pigs stranded by the recent Midwest flooding. These animals were brought into this world by factory farms, raised in horrific conditions, and destined to be slaughtered for bacon. Now, even though disaster has struck, there is an opportunity to rescue them from a hellish existence and give them a shot at a better life. What defines human beings and our humanity is the ability to rise to the occasion, relinquish our selfish desires, and show compassion to all sentient beings in need. You can read about the rescue efforts and make a donation here.

Yes, I was born in the Year of the Pig. Them pigs are sweet, intelligent animals. Babe, you say!

May all beings be free from suffering.
May all the pigs roam free.
