Hello all,

Janelle and I have decided to end our experimentation with vegetarianism. Don't get me're not going to catch me wolfing down on some pub chicken wings or steak's anytime soon...but after 16 months we decided to reincorporate poultry back into the diet....mind you we sill need to know that it's ethically raised stuff...

which is awesome as we have made some pretty good connections out at Greens, Eggs & Ham and think we're going to source a fair amount of turkey and duck from them...

I think at most we are still planning to only do the poultry thing once a week...if that...and while I might do a hamburger or two this summer I don't think I'll ever do the pig again...those things are just too darn cute and awesome to eat imo anymore.

I've decided that people still eat far far too much meat in their daily diet...but also that some meat provides a tremendous source of nutrients and health to people...I don't want to say it's directly related but since I've already noticed a difference in my energy levels in the last two weeks...a few months ago I could run my hands through my hair and come away with a bunch of loose hairs but got to say that even my hair feels thicker and healthier.

I still really like a lot of the people I have met through the local veggie meetups so I hope I won't get judged too harshly and can continue to participate with them sometimes.

Onwards and forwards peeps!

Ohhh in other news I got a .49 cent refund when I did my taxes...while it's better than the 20k+ bill I got back in 2010 one of these days a refund would be ohhhh so nice.

Ducks Ducks Ducks everywhere!!!

I didn't take any photo's but I am hoping someone will send me a cute one they took of Janelle. On Sunday night her and I went out to help out Andreas and Mary-Ellen of Greens, Eggs & Ham with 500 ducks that were giving them some issues. (BTW: DON'T CLICK THAT LINK, their site is infected by a worm right now)

 It was cold hard work but both Janelle and I really enjoyed it. As vegetarians we were more interested in the microgreen operations they have but didn't get a chance to see that this time.

We'll be back out again though during the summer to help them out with some farm work and hopefully at a farmers market this summer. I can see farming being really hard but so rewarding. Mark my words...another year...maybe two...then I'm going to be done with this grey office drone career that I've boxed myself into. *above farm stock photo but similar.

Down at the Remedy

I've got to say that Remedy Cafe is still one of my favorite spots in the city. I think the main reason I really enjoy it is because it's such a good mix of coffee and booze....not a bar...but not a coffee shop....It's Janelle's birthday tomorrow but we are going out a bit tonight because I am going to be in the Master Composter class tomorrow. I've finally gotten full access to the new Community website I am working on so looking forward to doing some changes there.
