Exactly what does a dog see?

emoticon & emoticon for checking this out.

If you have ever been curious about what dogs see, this will afford excellent insight on that matter. As the Grandma to a total of nine Grandpuppies, I found it interesting & hope that you do, too.

Inglorious Fruits and Vegetables --- I approve this idea!

Sunday, July 27, 2014

emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon


In the United States of America -- three hundred million tons of fresh produce is thrown away per year! emoticon

Quite insane!

Worse, yet, when one stops to think about the number of children in the USA & the world over, who daily go hungry &/or die each minute from starvation. emoticon

From Wikipedia on malnutrition --- "There were 925 million undernourished people in the world in 2010, an increase of 80 million since 1990. Another billion people are estimated to have a lack of vitamins and minerals." And just think --- in the USA alone --- three hundred million tons of fresh produce is thrown away per year! Does this knowledge not grieve your heart? It does mine --- right past words to describe how much! emoticon

This gal abhors waste of any type --- especially of fresh produce. This idea pleases me beyond words & I sincerely hope that you will find it to your liking, too.

emoticon for checking this inglorious fruits & veggies idea out. Maybe, if we all suggest this to our supermarket chains, they will eventually get the idea that consumers will go for the idea of less expensive, while just as tasty veggies & fruits --- thus, resulting in less waste of God's bounty. emoticon

    I just watched the vid, alot of the grocery stores where I live do this already. Also, alot of odd-looking but otherwise perfectly good produce, is given to the food pantries, soup kitchen, and 2nd Harvest, where I live. I use it all the time.

CAROLFAITHWALKR 9/21/2014 7:00PM

    Meal planning before going to the grocery store, helps prevent this.

Also, taking one planned day out as "produce prep day", and, if needed, a second planned day for batchcooking, will ensure everything is cooked and eaten.

Raw veggies that need to be peeled / chopped / sliced / diced may molder in the drawer. But wash and cut them up and put them in a divided Tupperware tray in the fridge - they will be eaten and/or they will be ready for making salads and recipes with.

Batchcooking ensures every meal is as fast to reheat or finish cooking as takeout, only much healthier and much more frugal than takeout. Freezer meals, cooked and uncooked, should be part of the batchcooking rotation.

Don't forget the crockpot. Put the old-but-not-yet-dead veggies in there, with leftovers like meat, beans, broth, and you won't believe the heavenly aroma that greets you a few hours later when you walk in the door. Automatic homemade soup / stew.

    Our grocery stores also sell the "disfigured", blemished or otherwise slightly "unsightly" produce @ rock bottom and I know they also donate produce which is edible to food pantries to be used that day.

Personally, I will buy the produce and use it in my soups and stews too. At worst it can be used to make vegetable stocks.

Great idea to stop food waste!

    Our supermarkets here (we have 3 ) all package up veggies and fruits that are either disfigured or small blemishes and sell them really cheap. These are great for chopping up into the freezer for readiness to go into soups stews and casseroles.

They also donate their day old breads and other bakery goods to the food bank here.

Stuff that is way past being sellable but is useable is free for the taking for the farmers that have livestock that will eat these things, so everything gets used no matter what.

This started long before my time on this old earth, in this town, probably because of the isolation here.


At one time there was only one ship that would come in and dock at the paper mill for a couple hours once a week, to take on passengers bound for Vancouver, and to drop off ordered supplies.

Natalie posted this a few minutes after 7:30pm on July 8th...

The love of my life has entered Heaven and is now fully healed.


emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon


I share this information with bittersweet tears welling up in my eyes & a tight squeeze of my heart. Needless to say we are heartbroken with the loss of Chad in this lifetime; however, there is a great peace to be had in knowing that he is in the presense of our Creator God & that, as Natalie said, he "is now fully healed".


Please, continue to remember Natalie & Briton; as well as the rest of Chad's loved ones, in prayer covering, as they deal with life without Chad's presence in the physical form.


I sincerely emoticon each of your for your faithfulness in going before our Abba Father petitioning on behalf of Chad's loved ones! God bless you, now & always!
