Animal Rights - My 2 Cents

Generally I try not to blog about my life in too much detail. But this I have to blog about.

Where I work, I take animal abuse complaints and then send someone out to investigate the complaints. I love my job. I hate my job to hear about people that do horrible things to animals. Yes, I take calls about horrid monstrous actions that people do to animals.

And after just seeing the trailer for Earthlings, I don't think I'll ever eat meat or buy leather ever again.

In fact, Bimmer Man & I were arguing over a leather couch. No more leather couches. He can have the fake suede, but definitely no animal hide will ever be in our house.

After hearing and watching all of this, I'd just like everyone to hug their pets, family and fishbowls and remember that animal abuse can be prevented and stopped. (Overpopulation of pets can also be prevented by spaying/neutering your pets!)

Report animal abuse and neglect to your humane societies and animal control. If you see something, please don't be afraid to report it, it's anonymous.


Hawaii 2009

So for the past 2 weeks we've been on the lush tropical island of Kaua'i. Staying where Jurassic Park was filmed and gorging our faces on fresh fish.

We stayed in Kapaa, where it rained most mornings and cleared up in the afternoon. We went surfing, swimming, ziplining and rented bikes to bike along the coast of Kaua'i. We even drove to Waimea Canyon.

We ate at the Postcards Cafe which was AWESOME.

Lovely blog readers, I've missed you.

And on Thursday I will finally have my own kitchen again. I will find THE BEAST of my Kitchenaid mixer and make you something special.

I will go to the Farmer's Market and find veggies galore.

I will bake bread.

Muffins. Cookies.

Chicken. Fresh fish. STEAK (for Bimmer Man, not me).

I shall experiment in my new kitchen. And try not to blow anything up.

I can't wait to have my own kitchen again. It will be the best thing ever.

Because all I've made since the last time I posted was lemon broccoli and it wasn't very good. Too lemony and not enough garlic. Oops.


Bimmer & MONSTER On TV!!!

So yesterday we supported the Humane Society and went to St. Paul. Turns out, Bimmer & MONSTER got to be on TV! You can pick them out right away. MONSTER is the dog in the pool. HA!
