FRIENDS ONLY DUE TO SPAM
Due to spam comments, I've had to set my journal so that though anyone can see my journal, only friends can comment. If you want me to friend you, please add me to your friends list and send me an e-mail (address is in my profile) saying where you know me from.
Also, I cleaned out my friends list in early July of 2013. If you were on my friends list and missed the postings saying I was going to do so, message me (or reply to this post) with a reminder of where I know you from and I'll add you back in :-)

| Question for U.K. furs
I just heard that eggs sold in the U.S. would be illegal to sell in the U.K. because they've been washed. Is that true? If so, why is it illegal to sell washed eggs? What does the health ministry thing the danger is?

|What do you think of "found the vegan"?
What do you think of "found the vegan"? For example, in a discussion about JD's Bacon Scented Deodorant, which has an artificial scent and isn't made with animal product, I saw where someone said "Why would i want to smell like pig death?" and someone else replied "Found the vegan :-)"
Video not mine. And yeah, traffic is that slow on the big three rod run weekends.

|Making up for that last post
Even if it's something that needs to be said, I don't like being negative, so I'm making this post to make up for the last one.
Remember this song? Back in '85, I was staying the night at my paternal grandparents house, this came on MTV, I liked it right away and been a fan of Midnight Oil ever since. Their songs often had a political slant. Not surprisingly, lead vocalist Peter Garret later ran for political office in Australia and was in office for some time.
|This post is potentially upsetting, I hope you'll read anyway
WARNING, the video seen below has graphic depictions of animal cruelty. Source herehttp://thatvegancosplayer.tumblr.com/post/82819172780/lottielavegan-mouthwingss-just-released
JUST RELEASED UNDERCOVER INVESTIGATION:
Mercy For Animals investigator documented workers at a Maple Leaf chicken hatchery throwing baby chicks by their fragile wings, slamming them into metal dividers, sending them through an industrial washing machine to be scalded and drowned, and violently cramming them into macerators to be ground up alive.
This is just a small display of the systematic cruelties in animal agribusiness. Please consider helping these defenseless birds by taking them off your plate.
I couldn’t even watch all of this. I don’t really see that I should have to, I’ve already accepted that it is wrong and that I want no part of it and am therefore vegan.
If YOU EAT MEAT OR EGGS you NEED to watch this and then if you want to carry on as you were, live with the guilt. Don’t live in ignorance just to make your life easier, because that is selfish and cowardly.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WLAzcGw8Cv8

|Went for a ride
Monday morning, the weather was warm enough that I went for my first long ride of the year on my 2007 Kawasaki KLR 650. From my workplace, I went to the Tail of the Dragon by way of Townsend and the Foothills parkway and stopped at the Deal's Gap Motorcycle Resort (where I got a bottle of Dragon's Breath habanero hot sauce). I hoped for a photo by Killboy.com like the one I got last year, but due to bad weather in the forecast, none of the Dragon's usual photogs were out there (It started raining soon after I got home). I then went to Cades Cove by way of the Dragon and Parson's Branch road. Parson's Branch is a very rough unimproved road that is not recommended for vehicles without off road capability (I actually saw someone on another KLR going the opposite direction). I went back to Townsend and then to Pigeon Forge, then to Gatlinburg and back home by way of a backroad. 121 miles in four hours.
