Vegetarian??

   Tonight on the news was a report on animal cruelty at a huge pig operation in the panhandle.  These poor huge pigs were in cages so small they could never turn around.  I won't describe anything else.  You don't want to know.  Not long ago there was a report on animal cruelty at a cattle feed yard.  It was not pretty.  I don't eat a lot of meat anyway so I am thinking I might become a vegetarian. I believe God created animals for us to eat but I do not believe the Lord created them to live in conditions that are just disgusting.  I wish I lived in a world where animals could live as intended, outside, and without hormones, etc.  I wish I could grow the vegetables I want to eat.  Having over 50 days of 100+ temperatures last summer, and the worst drought since records have been kept, and the wind, and the lake and aquifers beginning to dry up that supply our water for the panhandle just ruined my plans for growing much of my own food.  How on earth did the pioneers do it???

It bothers me every time I see mistreatment of animals. And food manufacturing/processing places are the worst.

I have felt this way for a very long time also, Carol. Our trips to Texas have us driving by horrible beef farms where the animals are clearly suffering tremendously as they wait for the slaughter. Eating an abused animal can not be good for our bodies or spirits. Do you have a good sized bright bathroom that stays decently warm? You could easily grow tomatoes, peppers, and other veggies in pots indoors. Remember to cook the dirt at 400 in the oven for an hour before using it indoors; to cut down on bugs. Pollenate your plants with a soft paint brush when the flowers bloom. {{{hugs}}} tell yourself you can do it, and you will ^^
