Come on! Give it a try. You said you agreed that we eat too much artery-clogging meat, and were willing to give a healthy vegan lifestyle a try.
Yeah, but when I agreed to that, I envisioned potatoes and beans, perhaps broccoli and cauliflower – possibly lots of salads, with iceberg or romaine lettuce, radishes, cucumber and green onions – even ovo-lacto, with chopped, boiled eggs and bits of old cheddar cheese. I never imagined eating flowers. What kind of dressing do you put on them – Kim Kardashian’s perfume??
I can’t wait to put this meal on Instagram. No-one will believe it. 🙄

I have strived for years to absorb the wisdom of the ages, and all I wound up with was the ages – very little wisdom. Even my LinkedIn profile (under The Archon) lists my job description as ‘Sage’….more like oregano – or thyme. Just as taxis are being pushed out by the likes of Lyft, or Uber, so too do I find my respectedAdored Elder position of ‘disseminator of arcane knowledge’ being replaced by part-time amateurs.
During the summer, I took the wife and daughter (more than once) to a couple of plant nurseries. Valuable tribal lore used to be passed by word of mouth, from older, experienced, veteran warriors, to green, wet-behind-the-ears youngsters, around the campfires at night.
I found that wisdom (and what passes for it) is now passed from smart-mouthed hipster Millennials, to plant lovers and random passers-by, via garden plaques. Here are a few of the ones I saw. Perhaps you’d like to copy and save one or two, and pass them on, when the time is right.
Ah well, you guys come here mostly for the humor….or is it just to humor me? I’ve armed you well. Go forth and be philosophical – and come back in a couple of days for some jokes.
