Californian BDW members who love animals....

Recommended Posts

Incase you haven't seen the ads you have a chance to really change the living situations for farm animals in your state that could lead to a country wide change of how farm animals are treat -- they'll be legally provided with rights for bare essentials like enough space to move around etc....

 

If you vote and you care about animals check out this website and get informed and vote yes on Prop 2 on Nov. 4th

 

Anyone else that knows someone in California educate them about this Prop and try to get them to vote yes!!!

I know I wished I lived in Cali right now so I could vote. I have donated some money to help them get their ads on TV and good news they were on Oprah a few weeks back and from their website it looks like the New York Times is on their side but if people don't know about i am afraid they won't care to vote yes!!!! Ugh...so frustrating...but hopefully Prop 2 prevails!!!!

yeah i saw that oprah. i also saw an episode of This American Life about modern pig farming. It really upset me. I used to raise pigs & I was sad to see how it has changed. Not just for the pigs, but for the farmers. I hope prop 2 makes life better for both the animals & farmers. i'm willing to pay the extra penny an egg to have a nicer way of farming. I won't even eat veal. I was glad to see taht veal farmers are already making the move away from crates.

it isn't just people in california that can do something. we can use market pressure to make changes all over. I never buy veal. if they changed veal farming, i might. i buy cage free eggs & try to go to restaurants (like chipolte) that do the same.

i eat meat about 2 times a month as it is. after watching the show about pig farming I was too sickened to eat meat that month.

i do believe the farmers are doing the best they can to care for the animals. i feel its the pressure to drive down prices that leads to chickens squished into cages and pigs in pens so small they can't move.

i wouldn't repost. you could ask a mod to move it, but i don't know what is a better catagory. you wouldn't want to put it in the wrong place just because it gets more traffic. I never look in catagories. i only check my unread posts.

 

the weekends are not as active here.

I am so HAPPY! This means 20 million farm animals in Cali in the next 6 years will have better living conditions and could lead to a change nation wide!

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
