Santa Ana winds

I despise Santa Ana Winds!
high heat & low humidity, is a recipe for disaster!
Even in literature is documented,
and old Mexicans living in SoCal call it Diablo Wind,
the wind of the devil!
"There was a desert wind blowing that night.

It was one of those hot dry Santa Anas
that come down through the mountain passes and
curl your hair and make your nerves jump and your skin itch.
On nights like that every booze party ends in a fight.
Meek little wives feel the edge of the carving knife
and study their husbands' necks. Anything can happen."
—Raymond Chandler, "Red Wind"

eggs are:
all this according to the FDA,
the FDA has forbidden the egg industry
to include any of these words on egg cartons:
Healthy, nutritious, and safe...

it takes 3.25 pounds of grain and
51 gallons of water to produce 1 2-ounce egg!

It is crazy the devastation to the environment
and the amount of suffering the hens go through,
to produce a food that is so unhealthy!

eggs are bad for you, for the hens, and the environment, they are gross too!

salute to the sea

went to say hello to the ocean
in my birthday
to thank him/her for another year of life
and then, secretly, i took pictures of


white hairs, a couple of more
little wrinkles around my eyes
mostly from smiles
and fine
this experience of being alive
so thankful for that
live, alive, life

my own birthday gift

this amazing cooperative market where all the veggies
are local, organic, and affordable, is a vegetarian store too
NO meat in sight, they have a wonderful deli upstairs!

getting veggies before going leafleting

and after giving away some information on why going vegan
is so important for the animals, to improve our health
and for the planet!
Veganizing the OB pier
Raising animals for food is wasteful and creates
huge environmental problems.

Idaho Wolf Slaughter Plan Goes Live, Stop It

Idaho Wolf Slaughter Plan Goes Live -- Stop It
"Idaho Governor Butch Otter just signed a death warrant for 500 more wolves.

And he's going to divert $400,000 of taxpayer money to kill them.

Idaho's official policy is that "wolf recovery efforts be discontinued
immediately, and wolves be removed by whatever means necessary." It has
already killed more than 971 wolves in three years and plans to ramp up the massacre, to slaughter another 500.

Though Idaho's wolf population has plummeted by 42 percent since federal protection was stripped away, the state -- now in charge -- wants to kill another 500 wolves. That will drive the population down to an unsustainable level of just 150."
