A New Year is approaching ....

Gosh hasn't that come around fast again? Is it just me or is it as you get older the year moves faster?
I don't think I will make a New Year's Resolution this year, I just don't keep them, or maybe they are too unrealistic for me to keep, that may just be the answer.
  • Maybe instead I will just be "kinder" to myself and others
  • I will think before speaking .......... yeah right
  • Won't judge
  • Be more sociable
  • Clean my house more
  • Keep the dogs outside more..............

I also want to start to find meat supply from somewhere where I know that the animals are kept humanly before they were slaughtered. If you know of a place that you are sure that this is happening and I mean things like, pigs and cattle are not kept in cages but roam freely and they have a good life before it all ends, that is the place I want to buy my meat from. I may not be able to change allot about what I put in my mouth but at least I can know that the animal was not cages all its life. (talk to Oprah about that one, I saw that the US passed a law about keeping animals in human conditions) I will also buy only free range eggs. I would ideally like to make sure that what ever company I buy my other dairy items also use only animals treated humanly throughout its life, which means I may have to find a source for cheese, butter and milk as well. But 1 step at a time.

Thats fantastic that you are planning on buying meat from humane breeders. Is there are farmers market near you? My farmers market sells local meat, but not sure what the conditions are like for the animals, but at the market you can ask the farmers and hopefully they don't lie to you...

Good lock on finding something.
