I don't really know what I am musing on these days. It's more like an irregular stream of consciousness thing...it seems to be working.

Thought Provoking

*Copied in entirety from my LJ post, so feel free to ignore if duplication is dull*

I think I'm going to buy the book as a birthday present to myself, but check out the snippet from Peter Menzel's "Hungry Planet":

Photo Essay

I can't quite tell if it was artful staging or the actual truth, but it is pretty true that in most Western(ized) countries, the fruits and vegetables and bare bones meat and breads are somewhat lacking. Or rather, they might be there, but they're probably in packaged, pre-prepared form. I don't particularly like soda myself except on very rare occasions, so I think there is some bias in terms of my gobsmackery at the sheer amount of that displayed; the hardest thing to do while looking through this series of photos is to turn off the 'judgment button'. It's hard, but it's worth doing - give it a try, and let me know what you think.

Ok, fine, I admit I had to laugh at the beer in the German family's photo. Feel free to pillory.

Love the way the Brits have their dog food and cat food in their weekly expenditure! And the dog in the photo as a family member.

The Chadian family is sobering though. That's an image to remember when I have a momentary blood sugar low and begin to feel grumpy....before opening the cupboard and yamming some scran.

Very interesting.
