Year and day of the pig

The Chinese new year began on February 18th. This is the year of the Pig. It is considered to be a very lucky year for those born during it, and would-be parents are timing their pregnancies to ensure that they have a child this year. The believe is that children born in the year of the pig will possess the same desirable traits that a pig exhibits, such as being, fat, happy and prosperous. Hospitals in China are being bombarded with so many new babies that they have had to increase their staff and facilities.

It just so happens that March 1 is also National Pig Day. (I’m a day late) It was started by a Texas school teacher to honor our most intelligent domesticated animal. These smart and social animals have very unique personality traits and emotions. They are curious, insightful, loyal and friendly as well. Many studies have show that they are as intelligent as some primates species.

With a whole year and a day dedicated to this wonderful animal, why not give them a break and cut pork out of your diet for awhile? There are a ton of pork/meat substitute products on the market nowadays. You will probably not even notice that you’re not eating meat (especially if there is sauce involved). Below you will find a list of my favorite meat substitutes.

Veggie Burgers – Dr. Praeger’s or TJ brand tofu burgers. These can also be ground up to make a ground beef substitute. (can be found at T.J.’s)

Veggie Sausage- Tofurky (can be found at T.J.’s and most supermarkets)

Veggie Hotdogs- Quorn (can be found at most supermarkets)

Veggie Corn Dogs- Morningstar (can be found at most supermarkets)

Veggie Chicken- Quorn Products (can be found at most supermarkets)

Email Robertson MP defends criticism over NBN uncertainty Posted November 25, 2013 17:28:44 Labor’s new Federal Senator Deborah O’Neill has criticised the Coalition Government over uncertainty about the National Broadband Network rollout on the New South Wales Central Coast. Senator O’Neill says almost 17-thousand residents had been promised the NBN but now do not know when they will be connected, and what model they will [url=]Ugg Womens Gershwin[/url] get.The Opposition’s Communications spokesman, Jason Clare was on the Central Coast on Monday to discuss the matter with residents.The NBN rollout around Gosford commenced in early 2013 but it has come to a halt since the Coalition’s federal election win.Senator O’Neill has accused the Communications Minister, Malcolm Turnbull of creating a digital divide in the [url=]Ugg Women Kensington[/url] region. [url=]Uggs[/url] She says it is unacceptable. “It’s all well and good for the Liberal members and for the Minister Malcolm Turnbull to say ‘Oh we know that you need it’, but it’s not good enough we know you need it when they’re not going to fund it equitably to every single coastie,” she said.But Federal Robertson MP, Lucy Wicks says the Government is committed to continuing its NBN rollout in the region even though several areas remain under review to determine which technology would be the most suitable. “The important thing for people in Tascott and the Central Coast is that these reviews are not about holding the [url=]Ugg Sneakers Suede[/url] rollout up, it’s actually about improving it and looking for opportunities where we can in fact speed it up,” she said.”We want to make sure we can prioritise areas with poor broadband or [url=]Ugg Shoes Perth[/url] no broadband and importantly to make sure the whole country is upgraded sooner.” Ms Wicks says the Government is committed to providing all Australians with access to [url=]Ugg Shoes Zurich[/url] high speed internet by 2016. internet-technology, internet-culture, federal-elections, federal-parliament, gosford-2250 More stories from New South Wales BOF wrong on crime revenue NSW does not collect more proceeds of crime than all other states and the Federal Government combined.
