I am amazed at the agreement from people about the crap in our western food....thankyou so so much for your comments....
it is so so nice to know that i am not alone with that thinking......
I too believe that it is the cause of a lot of our illnesses....some of them terminal......

Today is Sunday for me and our little church went well this morning....we have everything in place now for when we are away which is so much different from this time last so pleased it is different....I am sure our little flock will enjoy the people who are going through to speak while we are away and hopefully get a lot out of it.....

Am so looking forward to my 3 weeks fully ready for it in fact possibly a little over due for it....
Haven't even had the time to get out in the back yard with my book as yet....unbelievable...usually get some time out there before we go on holiday....

Am hoping to log in each day and maybe a short blog but won't be checking emails till I get back so will have a mountain to go through and a lot of friend feed as well but will get there....
May write a short blog tomorrow before leaving.....

Keep going forwards folks....

This transition is kinda a slow process for me as I sometimes take one step forward and 2 stareps
Well thats how it seems anyway....
Having said that though....I do have to say that if I hadn't been introduced to spark i would not have even started this journey.....

I also have to say that if I hadn't gone to Ethiopia I wouldn't have seen the difference in food and what the additives can do to one....
I am so grateful for that trip as when I came back and started eating our food here again it really showed me how much my health had improved while in Addis and started me on my vegan path which changed my health 10 fold.....yay.....

Looking forward now for the extra few lbs to decrease...

    So true this journey is such a slow one but so worth I'm not vegan but I do understand what you are saying we are pretty much killing ourselves with what we eat

    Those of us who have gardens to grow vegetables and fruit are very fortunate. It allows us to by-pass a lot of adulterated foods.

    I'm not vegan or even vegetarian anymore. I was the latter for several decades. But I agree the additives and stuff they put in our food supply (might even be worse in the U.S. than where you live) are awful for us. I am not doing as well as I could in cleaning up the diet but totally agree with ye. The food labels look like science experiments. Why do they do this?

Be well, Lynmeinders! Keep going!

    Hi Lyn!.
I too believe the additives and preservatives in our processed foods are killing us or at the very least responsible for many of our illnesses.

This is why I mainly eat fresh and raw ..
I haven't quite got to completely vegan yet, but very close ..
I still enjoy fish and chicken ..
Glad you are feeling so much better.
Take care My friend

    What did you do in Africa?

The Western diet is a killer on so many levels! As long as you are moving forward...that is the most important thing.

You can do it!

I am certain that time is flying by much faster than it used to.....
I too was told the older you get the faster it goes but I am not so sure I believe that anymore as I have had young people telling me that they don't know where the year has gone....these are Uni students whose age is around 18, 19 & 20..... me there must be something else that is causing this if they are saying it as well as us oldies....

I am convinced that society now expects different things form us therefore we are not only required to hold down a job but on top of that we have all the activities that the kids want to be involved in and anything else that we would like to get involved in....added to the normal household chores that sadly don't appear to do themselves......
An then there is all the computing that we need to find the time to do some part of the day.... the time we have managed to achieve all that and finally have the time to sit down and relax it is actually passed our bed time and we need to grap a few hours sleep to get up and do it all over again.....

This sounds a bit like a treadmil that maybe we need to get off.....

Just some thoughts to ponder...

trust you are all having a great day

    Sadly, I have to agree. Time seems to slip through our fingers like sand. And like sand, the harder we try to hold onto it, the faster it slips away. With all our technology and things to make life easier, the one thing they have neglected to produce, is time to use all that stuff.

    I think I read somewhere after that huge earthquake and tusami in the islands around the indian ocean that the earth shifted so slightly, but was enough to change our time.
So perhaps this is so .. I will google it and see .
Check this out it is interesting !.>

    Do you think as we get older our metabolism slows so it seems like time is going faster? But, time does seem to fly by. One day it's Monday and you seem to turn around and it's Friday tomorrow! Life is Good, though! Enjoy every moment.

It is nearly the end of another week and the most scarey of all is that the first month of 2012 is nearly over/ has gone so so fast.....

Had a fairly full day today however it was really pleasant and I enjoyed it and actually got some work done...yay for me....
Got caught up on some stuff at work and tidied up some bits before going on holiday so am pleased....
Have to write a report howvver that will get done and to be honest if it doesn't well it doesn't really matter because it really could wait till my first week back...however part of me wants to get it done and out of the way......

Was a lovely warm day today however it all turned sour around 4.30 when it started to rain and hasn't stopped....hopefully it will fine up tomorrow at least long enough for me to get a walk in....
Have a couple of appointments tomorrow so could be an active day.....

am off to do the church newsletter now for while we are away....then to byes....
Back tomorrow....

    I love the passage of time because there is always another great adventure or opportunity to be happy or to solve a problem or make life better around the corner. I love the seasons as they pass and come and go and come again as it is prove that life is everlasting and goes on, no matter what.

Glad you are getting time off Lynmeinders! I personally would let that ol' report go until you get back to work!

Lol, have fun!

    Time seems to go faster these days ..I can remember my darling mother saying to be just before she passed:
As you get older time goes faster ... there are not enough hours in the day anymore! .She was so right !
Make every day count!! .
