the spreading of the HINIE-V and the unemploymency

Another person added to the list of unemployed people that I know personally, and about to have a baby at that! Does that mean his wife and baby won't have health insurance??

Another story of someone I know personally coming down with H1N1.

This stuff is officially is no longer a case of media fear-mongering, but actual real-life messed up world holy moly what are we going to do crap! Am I the only one feeling all hypochondriaced out about the scary germs circulating the planet right now, spreading like-- hate to say it -- the plague?

This stuff suddenly has been promoted to the level of CANNOT BE IGNORED.

1/2 head cabbage, chopped
5 potatoes, peeled and cubed
1 large onion, chopped
5 cloves garlic, minced
1 tbs olive oil
6 cups vegetable broth or vegetarian chicken flavored stock
1 giant can of organic stewed tomatoes
1/2 package Trader Joes Soyrizo
1 can spicy V8 vegetable juice
cayanne pepper to taste

heat olive oil on low and add onions and garlic until soft, about 3 min
Add soyrizo, sautee for another 3 min
add remaining ingredients. Bring to a boil, then cover and simmer on lower heat for 30 min.
Add cayanne pepper to taste if it isn't spicy enough.

This soup is vegan and filling, good for a cold rainy day

Accept and Give Praise

I can live for two months on a good compliment. -- Mark Twain.

By saying, "What you are doing is wonderful," we encourage those who are doing the wonderful thing to keep doing it. Maybe in a small way, we become responsible for the continued existence of something wonderful.
