Nestle Says Contaminated Animal Feed Responsible for Melamine in Baby Milk

An important story that slipped beneath the radar.......

“Testing led to the discovery of melamine in a number of samples of cattle feed which is predominantly used in winter, which explains the presence of melamine traces in these batches. Consequently, Nestlé has also taken steps to ensure that the cattle feed used by its South African milk producers is melamine free.”

Thanksgiving Prayer by William S. Burroughs

Now, that is not to say that I am not thankful for many of the amazing gifts I am privileged to experience, but..... this holiday has always been a knife in my side for two reasons: first of all, it uses First Nations people as a symbol of peace and working together, when, in fact, they were exploited and almost exterminated.....and second, 72 million turkeys are slaughtered to 'give thanks?' How twisted and barbaric is that? To kill an animal with a complex nervous system and then consume it? The holiday is one monstrous act of insanity to me....but.... we are all likely insane.

As one can imagine I am still,.....thrilled, and tearful over Obama's win...this story about picking the family dog is humorous and touching. Our president elect is a joker/comedian...he does, however, look tired. Wishing him much health, happiness, productivity, love and laughter. Go Obama go!
