Why I Didn’t Get Eaten by a Komodo Dragon

Why I Didn’t Get Eaten by a Komodo Dragon

Easy Ways to Go Meatless Monday!

It isn’t that difficult to go without meat, at least a day or two a week. I’ve gone from being vegetarian to eating meat/fish/chicken only 2 or 3 times a week. When I do eat meat, I try to eat grass fed, cageless, no antibiotics, no steroids, sustainable. We cannot always be perfect, but we […]

I’d come to think of it as just an unhappy consequence of traveling, but after my husband, Randy, had to have a double lung transplant (a very unexpected journey) two years ago I looked at it differently. Viruses and infections are extremely hazardous to Randy, […]
