Red meat
2016-10-05 by Lorie Murdoch
Hi guys, A few years ago, I stopped eating meat for about a year. At my annual doc appt., I told her I was really tired all the time and she ordered a blood check of my B12. It was way, way below the normal level -- because I had stopped eating steaks and burgers! That was the end of being a vegetarian for me!

Bottled Water

To the Motts, in response to the show of October 1, 2016 Subject Nestles Water Grab, in Wellington, Ontario Carol and Paul, You are doing a great service by publicizing what is an "environmental disaster", created by an industry "gone wild", and by the millions of unsuspecting individuals who buy plastic bottles, filled with any kind of liquid for human consumption. At this time and place in history, Nestle is the culprit. Yes, a boycott might turn a head or two, on the fringes of their vast business empire, but a boycott will fizzle out, and the business will carry on as before. There must be a better way. (Hopefully, you will continue to broadcast this issue for many weeks to come, eliciting ideas from listeners.) Who can be blamed for this enormous "take" of the water beneath Wellington, and beneathe so many other cities, counties and unpopulated lands? Let's begin with OURSELVES (those of us that have good tap water, and still buy plastic). Let's acknowledge the root of this problem. WE buy, consume and discard the "plastic water". Each one of us, who uses this product, is very much at fault. Once we know the consequences, and continue in the same manner, we are GUILTY of squandering fresh water. You radio show is offering a wake up call. WHAT can WE as INDIVIDUALS do to change this mindless habit? 1. Stop using plastic water bottles. 2. Tell friends and family the ecological reasons for having made the change. 3. Confront the Ontario government, to get back the rights sold to Nestle (or any others who would try to make purchases of land rights for the same purpose), and to forbid a similar sale. 4. Urge the Ministry of Education to launch a school campaign to teach sustainable use of water resources, especially countering the use of bottled water and other drinks that are so packaged. 5. Urge local schools and school boards to think of ways to impress this need for change upon students, such as putting a halt to the use of plastic water bottles on school property. Teach about "responsible stewardship" of natural resources, including water. At the same time, teach about those Ontario communities that lack safe drinking water, and must truck in bottled water, asking what needs to happen so that all Ontarians have access to local, safe drinking water.
The Motts:
Thanks, Mary.
Youre 100 right Paul.

Hi Paul, I agree with you 100 on how unfit Trump is for the presidency. This is far beyond policy disagreements he truly is a disgusting person. I truly can't fathom how anyone can witness Trump's continual childish, boorish behavior total disrespect for others but still support him. The level of support Trump receives has significantly lowered my opinion of the intellect civility in America.
The Motts:
'Tis scary, Bruce, 'tis scary.
