Saturday Sharing

Hello Class,

This is the class where we share with each other what we have learned during the week about anything at all! You can contribute in the comments.

This week seems to have gone by quickly.

I don’t know why I keep learning about Tarantulas when I don’t like spiders, but here are a few more facts.. Tarantulas eat black ants so if you live somewhere with Tarantulas and you see a trail of black ants, the Tarantula might be at the beginning of the ant trail. Also, Tarantulas need to be held very delicately (Not By Me) as there legs can break easily.

A person who kills 3 or more people over a months time can be considered a ‘Serial Killer’.

People really can win at the casinos, as, my friend won over $400. in one spin and I don’t think she had played $20. yet.

Lastly, I am watching a show about children who have a disease where they can’t stop eating. Sorry, I don’t remember the name of the disease, but I am including it, as it is something I have never heard of, before.

Now it’s your turn, and for Homework, Keep On Learning and Sharing with others!

Eater Types & Question/Challenge

Hide and I went to lunch today and it was delicious!

We went to Vegenation where I had the Pamela Anderson Tacos and Hide had the Tori Williams Burrito! She had so much left, she sent half of it home with me, because her husband doesn’t like a lot of greens.

Everything the restaurant serves is Vegan.

Vegetarian means you eat all or mainly Vegetables. There are different types of Vegetarians of which I am Flexitarian as, once in a while, I will eat Chicken or Fish. Vegan, on the other hand, means you cannot eat any part of or anything that comes from an animal; which includes Cheese, Eggs, Milk and Butter. Going from Vegetarian to Vegan should not be a huge jump, but what do you use for Butter substitutes that taste even close?

I had a blogger friend comment that he would be a bad Vegan; so, here is my question and maybe Challenge…for all my meat loving friends.

Have you ever tried going Vegetarian or Vegan? What happened?

What’s the longest you’ve been without Meat?

And, if you haven’t tried it, would you consider trying it and making a blog post about your experience?

Cereal & Pride NOT Proud of Cereal

Hey Guys

The word for the week via The Confusing Middle is Cereal. You really should check out the site and take part in some prompts. Theconfusingmiddle.com

That being said:

I am not a Breakfast person. Never have been. When I was young, my mother said I had to eat something after getting up even if it was just a piece of cake. While I do enjoy pancakes, toast, hash-browns, crepes and Cereal, I do not necessarily eat them for Breakfast.

When it comes to cold cereal, I love Lucky Charms…What’s not to like? They’re magically delicious! Plus, they are Gluten-free. I become a kid again eating the Cereal first then enjoying spoonfuls of marshmallows. Sometimes, I will just eat it dry from the box, as a snack. I also like a few of the other gluten-free Cereals out there. Vanilla Oats or Pumpkin & Flax Seed. I feel good knowing I am making healthy choices with those. As far as hot Cereal, I grew up on Cream-of-Wheat and Oatmeal. I used to love Cream-of-Wheat until I became gluten-free and while Oatmeal is okay, I have to be in the mood for it.

Today is the 14th Anniversary of my Kidney Transplant, and in that aspect, I am doing fine. Not a party throwing occasion but I am still proud. God isn’t ready for me, yet.
