    Why do people in richer countries eat more meat than people in other places? How does eating more meat affect our bodies, our planet, and other people?

    I do think that meat has an incorrect value placed on it. I believe that a good balance is good for our health of meat and fruit and vegetables.

    It wasn't terribly hard. Finding a good driving route and being sure to be efficient with my driving as well. I will be driving this summer to my vacation instead of flying as it is a preferred method of travel.

    The chilly wind could even ruin this site.

    It was a windy walk this morning and made me think about wind as a renewable energy source.

    Walking with the dog this morning, we watched a couple birds building a nest. Seems a bit earlier for that but was fun to watch nonetheless.

    Talked a bunch over the last two days with the client about NCZ initiatives. Fun to put names to processes. Here we come.
