Savory snacks, MOM, work e-mails and Dan Piraro
These are four of my stand-bys (not in order of preference). I love 'em all, in all the different flavours in which they come.
Anyone have a fave or one they dislike (either one pictured, or another brand?)?
And has anyone tried anything from this web site, or any of the products offered here:
HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY to all you moms out there and to all of us who are lucky to have our moms still around with us on Earth... a very happy momma's day to them as well.
Today I made calls to friends who are moms and to a few friends who sadly have lost their mothers over the years. I feel so fortunate to be close to my mother both geographically and emotionally (some might say TOOCLOSE but i don't agree!). I also got to spend some time with my mom and Peter's mom and the mother of my CA-residing nephew and niece. Grand!
My full-time job in journalism away from freelancing offers some glimpses into a lot of totally strange things. I'm not quite sure why this turned up on my department's e-mail today or what exactly this place is all about, it looks quasi-religious, but it seems to be pro-veg and kind of interesting...
and then here for English translation:
I'm a little lazy about looking at it at the moment... if anyone knows anything about this group (or maybe I just need to look at it more closely when I have time - later), please feel free to chime in with a comment!! I remember getting some kind of strange handout at the Earth Day Fair last month that looks a lot like most of the images i have seen thus far on the above site...
Just a couple more things and then that is all:
Saw the following link to an informative and cute video at Veggie Geek's blog and wanted to share it as I profess my undying appreciation for the genius of artist/cartoonist extraordinaire Dan Piraro:
And after the movie, I visited this cool Piraro-loved/recommended site: http://woodstockfas.org/
I love places like that.
Hope everyone has a beautiful, blessed week ahead!
