Verema didn’t survive
Melbourne’s Spring Racing Carnival has been depressing – especially when Verema was euthanased on the track after breaking a leg (or something like that). I tried not to read any of the articles on any of it, because it just made me feel sick – especially this article by Michael Lynch in the Age, which totally misses the point. RIP Verema.

Happy International Respect for Chickens Day…Happy International Star Wars Day (May the 4th Be With You) and happy birthday to me!
I got to do whatever I wanted today, so after a trip to the farmers’ market (with potato and lentil dosas for breakfast), we set off to visit the 3 Sea Shepherd ships docked at Seaworks in Williamstown—the Steve Irwin, Bob Barker and Sam Simon.
Do you ever find it really strange how 2 people can watch a movie (or read a book or hear a story) about animal cruelty in food production, and each have totally different reactions? I do.
While one will immediately swear off all animal products, the other will say, “I wish I hadn’t seen that, it’s almost put me off my dinner”.
