I just had a friend send me this article on all of the garbage and chemicals in this Kraft food product. It should be taken off the shelves.
Just Because This Kraft Food Is “EASY” Doesn’t Mean You Should Eat It!
By Food Babe
I was walking in a huge warehouse store recently and I saw this box of Kraft “Easy” Mac & Cheese madness and just had to write about it. I forgot how disgusting this list of ingredients was, it’s a shame that stores are even allowed to carry this garbage.
The ingredient list on a little cup of Kraft’s “Easy” Mac & Cheese is a long one, and to think that so many kids around the nation are popping these suckers into microwaves is so sad. Please inform your friends and family – Just because it’s “easy” doesn’t mean that you should eat it...Read More

On Sunday morning, a carriage horse escaped from her handler and fled down 11th Avenue in midtown Manhattan. Police officers chased the spooked horse in vehicles with flashing lights, which could have made him even more frantic. If the incident had taken place at a busier time, the horse could have easily crashed into a moving car, which has happened many times in the past when horses break free in midtown.
The fleeing horse is symbolic of an industry out of control since the ASPCA relinquished its humane law enforcement duties in January. On Friday, The Daily News published a letter about the chaos written by Elizabeth Forel, president of the Coalition to Ban Horse-drawn Carriages:

These sweet little baby elephants have lost their parents to the wicked poachers. Every 15 minutes, a beautiful elephant and their families are slaughtered. Watch this touching video and consider fostering a baby elephant for $55 for the while year. That is .15 a day to help care for these precious babies.Read More
Every time I see these two brothers, Andre and Arthur, they are laying by each other or on top of each other. It is amazing how siblings are close. Just like my 4 kitties that will be 3 years old in March of 2015.
They are always together, licking each other, playing and sleeping with each other. This is Boots on the left, Hunter in the middle and Silky on the right. Cheddar tends to want to be alone.
I lived in Tucson for 5 years. They had two elephants, Connie and Shaba that had been together for a long time. Connie was an Asian elephant and Shaba was an African elephant. Connie treated Shaba like her baby. They came from two different situations, one from a petting zoo and I am not sure where the other ele came from. They revamped the elephant exhibit. Sent both elephants off to San Diego Safari Park. Connie died 6 months later of cancer. I guess she had it and they did not diagnose it or something weird. They built 6 acres of the new elephant park. Still not much room for 6 new elephants from San Diego. This new baby elephant was just born. She is cute. I hope they don’t have any more though. They need more room for now 7 elephants.Read More

I was about 27 years old when I finally took the blinders off and acknowledged my role in what is the animal holocaust known as factory farming. I watched a short film online called Meet your Meat. Looking back I am not sure how I ended up clicking that link, but I guess it was the universe helping steer me towards my future. A couple of years after becoming a vegetarian I asked for the book The Kind Diet for Christmas. I grew up watching Alicia Silverstone in movies and music videos so I was excited to learn of her compassionate lifestyle...
