    Heart of India and Nepal: Part 1

    In the past week since I got back from India and Nepal, I’ve been cooking up some Indian and Nepalese Cuisine in the kitchen.

    I now have a deep respect for the chefs who provided some amazing Indian dishes at the hotels and restaurants!

    Just a Random Update in December 2017

    It’s been a week since I got back from India and I’m still feeling jet lagged. Plus, on top of that I’m still feeling congested with a bad cold. Now it’s not so bad that I’m totally bed-ridden with fever and chills. I already had my flu shot. But, the situation is bad enough that I’m not back to my regular routines, and I find myself lying down a lot.

    Vegan 2017: A Documentary

    More and more people are turning to Veganism, either as a more healthy solution to a chronic illness or health issue they are experiencing, or simply to support animal rights and to prevent the torture and killing of animals.

    Vegan 2017 is the latest documentary I’ve come across on the subject of Veganism.

    A Whirlwind of an India Trip…

    Right now, I’m suffering time shifts of jet lag, having just finished a whirlwind tour through India.

    I have a gazillion photos to sort through and ‘curate’ before sharing them on Flickr and Facebook. Sure, I’d like to post them on Instagram too, but I like Facebook’s ability to create nice photo albums, while they also get posted on my timeline.

    The Pros and Cons of Getting Protein on a Vegan Diet

    Here’s the deal…

    The average American thinks that he/she needs protein from animals in order to survive.

    This idea/concept couldn’t be further from the truth.

    And I’ll use the analogy of the race horse once again, because a horse is the perfect example of a sentient being and mammal that thrives on a Vegan Diet!

    Will Trump Take Credit for Today’s Downward Market?

    If you’ve studied Trump’s twitter feed, you noticed that when something goes wrong, he blames others. But, when something goes right, he takes credit for it. When he is critiqued by the so-called liberal media, he simply calls it fake news. But the fact remains that he generates his own fake news, and at the very least, he exaggerates certain claims, like taking credit for the stock market when it’s doing well.
