Getting overrun by all the horrendous stuff human beings can do... starving their pets, beating them as their personal frustration boxing bags everyday, pretty much nasty and nastier stuff.

In my subscriptions to 40 odd food sites, 20 odd fashion gurus and sites, 10 odd architecture ones and 15 odd animal rescues/blogs.. I get 90% animal and pet news and 90% of that is bad with a very few happy stories thrown in between.
I mean comeon, foodies and fashion peeps are not producing enough content! So I am back to adding some more food and fashion and some random news subscriptions/fan pages to my daily reading to balance out the content....phew.. sometimes I think I was better off not reading.. but thats not gotten anyone anywhere.. giving up on something you can possibly do.. Its an eye workout for sure!

Tuesday contruction

Jack hammers and drills... gaah..
when will the construction here stop.. let me guess.. never.. its either the railroad or the viaduct or something else.. All to probably kick start the economy with more and more construction jobs since last few months.. need a sound proof home.. dint like the noise cancelling headphones.. too heavy and make my ears too hot!

Also realized yesterday, that after being out of the professional loop for 4 years, my definition of political correctness has become stagnant and did not upgrade to what it should be after 4 more years of professional exposure.. it is amazing that hubbs can talk more politically correct than me now:) He has grown so much in the last few years, that I am so immensely proud of him... :)

Why Milk or not?

Except for animals under human influence and Western gulls who steal milk from lactating seals, humans are the only known species that drinks the breast milk of another species, and the only known species that continues to drink breast milk into adulthood.

Don’t We Need Milk?

Milk from a cow is as necessary as milk from a pig or a horse or a giraffe. Human breast milk is the perfect food for human babies, while cow’s milk is the perfect food for baby cows. Cow’s milk naturally contains the large amount of hormones and protein needed to turn a 80-pound calf into a 1,000 pound cow in one year. That amount of protein and hormones is not only unnecessary but unhealthy for humans. Because they occur naturally, these hormones are even found in organically produced milk.

The American Dietetic Association supports a dairy-free, vegan diet:

It is the position of the American Dietetic Association that appropriately planned vegetarian diets, including total vegetarian or vegan diets, are healthful, nutritionally adequate, and may provide health benefits in the prevention and treatment of certain diseases.
Besides containing saturated fats, cholesterol, hormones and too much protein, milk is also linked to testicular cancer, breast cancer, and prostate cancer.

Fat, Cholesterol and Protein

Many dairy products tend to be high in saturated fats and cholesterol, which have been linked to heart disease. The American Dietetic Association states:

Features of a vegetarian diet that may reduce risk of chronic disease include lower intakes of saturated fat and cholesterol and higher intakes of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, nuts, soy products, fiber, and phytochemicals.
Milk protein is also a concern, and the protein in milk has been linked coronary deaths and to hardened, narrowed arteries.

Hormones, and Cancer

In 2006, a researcher from the Harvard School of Public Health found a strong link between dairy consumption and hormone-dependent cancers – testes, breast, and prostate. Scientist/physician Ganmaa Davaasambuu believes that the naturally occurring hormones in a pregnant cow’s milk increase the risks for these types of cancer. Milk from cows contains “considerable amounts of female sex hormones,” accounting for 60-80% of estrogens consumed by humans. Although the research focused on dairy, Ganmaa’s findings implicated a variety of animal products, as well as dairy:

Butter, meat, eggs, milk, and cheese are implicated in higher rates of hormone-dependent cancers in general, she said. Breast cancer has been linked particularly to consumption of milk and cheese.
Ganmaa’s findings are not unique. According to dietician George Eisman, in the US, one in six men gets prostate cancer. Only one in 200,000 men gets prostate cancer in China, where dairy is not regularly consumed. Also according to Eisman, breast cancer is highest in the countries with the highest dairy consumption. A study in England found that even within England, the counties with the highest dairy consumption had the highest rates of breast cancer. Eisman states that consuming dairy is “the most abnormal, crazy thing that we do.”

Contaminants in Milk

Contaminants in milk are another serious concern. American milk is banned in the European Union because of added recombinant bovine growth hormone (rBGH). When administered to cows, rBGH causes the cows to produce up to 20% more milk, but also causes the cows to produce more Insulin-like Growth Factor 1 (IGF-1). According to the Organic Consumers Association, some of the rBGH given to cows ends up in the milk. The Cancer Prevention Coalition (CPC) states:

It is highly likely that IGF-1 promotes transformation of normal breast cells to breast cancers. In addition, IGF-1 maintains the malignancy of human breast cancer cells, including their invasiveness and ability to spread to distant organs.
RBGH also increases the risk of mastitis, which sometimes leads to pus, bacteria and blood getting into the milk. Federal law in the US allows up to 50 million pus cells per cup of milk.

If rBGH is so dangerous and is banned in the EU, why is it legal in the US? The CPC believes that, “Monsanto Co., the manufacturer of rBGH, has influenced U. S. product safety laws permitting the sale of unlabeled rBGH milk.”

Another contaminant found in cow’s milk is pesticide residues. Residues are fat soluble, which means they become concentrated in the milk and tissues of animals.

What About Calcium?

While cow’s milk is high in calcium, it is also high in protein. Excess protein in our diets causes calcium to leach out of our bones. Dr. Kerrie Saunders states, “North America has one of the highest consumptions of dairy products, and also the highest incidence of osteoporosis.“ To combat osteoporosis, Saunders recommends exercise and “beans and greens” for a source of calcium that is not excessively high in protein. Ganmaa also recommends getting calcium from green leafy vegetables.

Furthermore, calcium intake may be less important for bone health than we’ve been led to believe. A study by researchers from the Harvard School of Public Health published in 1997 found that increased consumption of milk and other calcium-rich foods by adult women did not reduce the risk of osteoporotic bone fractures. Calcium retention is also important for preventing osteoporosis. Sodium, smoking, caffeine and physical inactivity can all cause us to lose calcium.

Lactose Intolerance
Lactose intolerance is common among many populations, affecting approximately 95 percent of Asian Americans, 74 percent of Native Americans, 70 percent of African Americans, 53 percent of Mexican Americans, and 15 percent of Caucasians. Symptoms, which include gastrointestinal distress, diarrhea, and flatulence, occur because these individuals do not have the enzyme lactase that digests the milk sugar lactose. For those who can digest lactose, its breakdown products are two simple sugars: glucose and galactose. Nursing children have active enzymes that break down galactose. As we age, many of us lose much of this capacity. Babies and small children can be allergic to milk, and experience symptoms including ear infections, skin rashes, and digestive problems..

While animal rights advocates are vegan for ethical reasons, it’s important to know that cow’s milk is not necessary for human health and foregoing dairy or reducing intake appears to have a lot of health benefits.!

why is this emotion so hard to let go..
I dont even want any of the things I envy some people for.. it is just material and fluffy happiness... Just a carry over from my old self...
let go.. let go.... It is a very misplaced envy.
I should envy the people who are doing so much more, for so many more.. and not get depressed by it but use that as a motivation... some traits are just so difficult to change.. but the brain is a very malleable thing... just takes time and effort to make the change permanent.

It is the same thing I have to apply everyday, for my stress and fear responses. Train the brain to associate those responses to neutral or likeable instead of fear and anxiety. it is a loooong process. Like if you see a snake/lion/any danger and your instant response is to run away, but instead you have to stand there and say hi to it with a smile on your face :)

Saturday cough

When a sore throat starts to get better, the dry cough makes life miserable. Hubbs been getting cough attacks mostly in the evening.. so sleep schedule is all messed up.

Just finished making some methi malai mutter and imli chole for dinner. Hubbs had vegetarian pho for lunch. He has been surviving on soups, pho, noodles and rice and lentil curries. Some additional recipes and updates on the recipe blogs fb page.

A 15 minute stop to sign all new petitions on PETA and ASPCA, find all petitions here .. done for the day. Time to prep for some bread and then dinner! Oh and also switch off the lights at 8:30 pm today!

Sunny Friday

Its a sunny Friday.. Though the weather prediction for the evening and the next 7 days is showers with some sun breaks.. Atleast today Friday is sunny!.

The usual day. writing to people who want pets and pointing them to the rescues near them with clear information about the dogs they want. Some of the CA peeps are just weird.. they'd rather get an unfixed and unhealthy puppy from a pet store(puppy mill) , so they can start young and also have one litter before fixing the dog, so their kids can see the miracle of birth.. jeez.. adopt a pregnant dog or cat from the shelter! esp since in CA the kill rates are as high as 60%. and shelters are overflowing with 500s of pets.. not just 10s or 20s.

Reading up on recipes too. This whole week went in a lot of soups and cooking every few hours... Sick hubbs=lots of food:). Thinking of what to do with the leftover feta cheese.. hmm .. i know chewie.. you are always there to finish it.
I feel really bad wasting milk or cheese, because as it is, we are privileged to be eating dairy and though the dairy products in this house are from local and certified humane farms, mostly happy cows.. but still it is a part of the milk which was produced for the calves.. So if the cheese if going to go bad and not consumed, i freeze it in icecubes for chew.

Chewie by the way has his own facebook page, which I recently upgraded with his bip, pictures and videos.. Check his musings out at

Have a great weekend everyone!

And on a sunnier note

Guilty dog videos!! The 4 legged sweeties with a conscience..

Earthlings - The Vegan maker
EARTHLINGS is an award-winning documentary film about the suffering of animals for food, fashion, pets, entertainment and medical research. Considered the most persuasive documentary ever made, EARTHLINGS is nicknamed “the Vegan maker” for its sensitive footage shot at animal shelters, pet stores, puppy mills, factory farms, slaughterhouses, the leather and fur trades, sporting events, circuses and research labs.

The film is narrated by Academy Award® nominee Joaquin Phoenix and features music by platinum-selling recording artist Moby. Initially ignored by distributors, today EARTHLINGS is considered the definitive animal rights film by organizations around the world. “Of all the films I have ever made, this is the one that gets people talking the most,” said Phoenix. “For every one person who sees EARTHLINGS, they will tell three.”

Full movie below. This is a very graphic movie. Viewer discretion is advised. You must be older than 18 to watch the video. To watch just the trailer please see

Ignorance is bliss.. I'd really not want to know about the brutalities some people commit on animals and other people.. raping and killing dog in Turkey.. really..

Just one of the days when I wonder, if my slowly increasing tolerance to reading is being used well.
I definitely do need to find some other work. Baking and cooking is not as adventurous right now because my palate is not as happy with too many changes or new things. And the innovative ideas with some little twists which I can handle are quite limited. There are just so many blogs and recipes and data out there, that sometimes sifting through all to find the ones with similar interest is a very time consuming process. Of course, I can pick up something, which will let me have only limited time to indulge in my other interests and hence optimize and choose what I do want to read and know about. But finding one that will keep me interested enough to keep putting in the effort everyday.. is a different ballgame altogether... Software and anything stressful and excessively computer centric , it out of the picture.
My mom would say... adopt a baby.. coz i cant possibly think of having one right now.. well no can do, until i can care for chewie and then some fosters all by myself.. I have like a tenth energy of a normal person.. probably lesser than that.. and a quarter of chewie's.. For every half an hour in the kitchen i have to take one or two 5 minute rest breaks.. dont think this much energy can get me anywhere close to taking care of a kid....

I am freeee...

No one had kept me chained... well except my self.... it just feels like i am free ..

I finally decided to part ways with my counselor.. I was so ready to just go, tell her I am done, and get out of there.. that most likely I didn't even complete my sentences :) I had to call her later to confirm if she got what I meant :) . I had written up a summary of why things are not working, so atleast I stayed till she read it and then I just ran out.. with a feeling of.. I am freee I am free.

The whole talk in circles was getting too exhausting. I did gain some confidence, but things had stopped moving much since the last month. Now, a break and then just follow my own path of good food, exercise and some yoga!


Had a hectic weekend.. Saturday was cleaning day .. then Hubbs got a sore throat so all of saturday night was spent tossing and turning and feeding him hot water and tea and pills. Hopefully the Get well Tea from Republic of tea is helping.. He is still weak but fever is in control.. lets see how it goes..
Poor chew had to skip a walk, but he didnt mind, probabaly because everyone was bed bound.. He did throw a tantrum later in the day when he saw hubbs moving around.
Weather is all cloudy again after a sunny weekend.. spring...
I do not like my new Valium supply, coz the manufacturing company is different.. The supposed rules for pharmas are very good.. but i can feel the difference.. Pharmaceutical companies.. r u listening?

Anyone who has lived in India, even for a few years knows that Bribes make up the oil that keeps the machinery rolling, even when the machinery doesnt really need that oil..

Sign the Bribe Bandh today to help reduce the corruption! It might sound like an idealistic thought, but if you have ever given a bribe or know of stories of harassment from friends and family.. sign up and maybe this small participation will help!!


India is one of the 140 countries that has signed the UN Convention against corruption. But signing alone is of no use. The government is under no pressure to make its anti-corruption laws stricter unless it ratifies the Convention. Its time for all Indians to come together and demand for change.


- Politicians and bureaucrats can be jailed for trying to influence courts and cops.
- Politicians and bureaucrats can be jailed for favouring business houses or lobbies.
- Corrupt business people can be jailed for bribing; their companies will be punished too.
- Money earned wrongfully, through corruption, can be forfeited.

good news anyone??

I seriously need to read some good, happy or just randomly quirky news everyday.. i am a magnet for all things wrong in the world.. the bad stuff just basically gets stuck in my head...

1000 awesome things and some every few hours every day! There are good people in the world and they are making a difference!!! As hubbs sez.. you cant dislike the whole human race for some bad people.. my wise hubbs's super wise words..

Happy St Paddy's

We finally cancelled digital cable! Yippie..
It was totally useless for us. I was not watching any programming on it and the only thing we were was the news channels in the morning.. But soon realized that the all the national channels suck.. repeat news, stupid news, and funky movie like camera movements even when the news anchor was sitting in one place.. plus really boring anchors!! Bye bye cnn, msnbc, fox and everything news..

Most of the programming is now available on hulu and other options and movies on netflix.. Time for everything IP..

Happy St Patricks day everyone! dont forget to check out how green(veggie) your alcohol is on !!

and I am out of options of things to do when the eyes r so cranky.. darn the allergies.
limited reading, writing, or anything else and limited cooking too, coz the balance goes out the window.. so limited periods of standing in the kitchen..
ahh i am bored of listening to books and music... hopefully it will settle down by tomorrow.

with therapist...
Me: This current plan does not seem to be working. I want a clearer way to deal with the problem.
Th: So what you are trying to say is, that you want my help in finding a way to deal with the problem
Me: (thinks to self.. have I been talking chinese since the past 4 months?)..... Yes!!
Th: But then you are assuming that you know that the plan isnt working.
Me: Yes, I do not think it is working.
Th: I would disagree with you on that. There are a lot of things you do much more easily now.. (gives example.)
Me: No, not necessarily. I do not find them easy.. (gives several examples.) And it is quite frustrating that a)you do not see that and b)we cannot find another way or plan to deal with it.
Th: So what you are trying to say is, that you are very frustrated about how things are going and you want my help to find some other way.
Me: Yes. I dont think you are helping much by sticking to just one plan, which I have already scratched as not working.
Th: It must be very frustrating then to not have any plan or way to handle the problem
Me: Yes, it is.
Th: Lets talk about why you got frustrated and upset in the last session.
Me: You know what? I am too irritated right now, and you are not giving me any ideas or support. So I will see you next week ( or never.... someone knock me back to my senses)..

Not the exact conversation, but pretty much a gist of what happens when I want answers and a defined plan. It is quite obvious that I need to change the counselor, it just not that easy a task.
A month of so of updating another one with the background, going all over it again, paperwork to connect him with the primary doctor and to the disability insurance and on and on.. And the stress to myself to deal with a new person and place all over again.. blahh.

The simple question why do I need one. I dont really, but this is the only way other than doping up on meds to keep the recovery on track and keep the frustration and depression in check.

is it just me

who gets so affected by all the problems in the world.. maybe i am just wired to be super emotional.. probably should short some of those wires.
I was just reading an article about what happens to cows in India and how lopsided our views are about it.
I got majorly depressed about so many bull calves slowly starving to death right in front of their mothers. Thats India for you, most people consider active killing of cows a sin.!
I started discussing it with Hubbs, and as he is the one who usually gets my practical and logical brain to work instead of just getting depressed and giving up, we started thinking about the problem.

People are not going to turn vegan overnight and affect the demand for milk enough, and the religious views are also not going to change anytime soon, so there will still be working female cows and starving bulls for a long time.
The state of the bull calves is the most depressing. What about someone helping with being able to sell these bulls to the farmers who need them in rural areas? There has to be demand for bulls somewhere.
It might not be the most ideal life for the bulls, but still better than slowly starving to death.
Still thinking of other solutions and ideas.... and if someone is already doing something about it, do drop a line about it ...

a prayer for everyone affected by the earthquake

may everyone have the strength to deal with the aftermath and a hope that things settle back to normal soon..

Friday, March 11, 2011


I cannot watch any movie anymore..!!. All movies these days have cameramen walking or running with the camera.. hey what happened to all the stable camera stands and rails... which already exist in each and every studio.
all movies have too much random loud noise.. even the regular family or romance ones will have some tracks which crop out of nowhere and are usually jarring to the ears, coz the music volume is usually higher than the normal speaking volume.., its a family movie, no one needs to be scared out of their pants by the sound track... with so much technology out there, i still have to resort to volume control every few minutes.
Even the hindi movies are getting crappier and crappier.. the usual song and dance ones which i can possibly watch, are made sooo bad, with such bad stories and bad acting, that I cannot subject myself to the indignity of watching a product like that.

I am sticking to watching local news, because the bigger news channels also fancy the crazy camera movements zooming into the nicely seated news correspondents.. hello.. that guy is sitting.. on a chair.. in a building.. we are not inside a hurricane..
I dont need no cable anymore!. And if anyone throws any more movies at me with unnecessarily added 3-D, i am going to start a petition against the reckless and wanton use of technologies like 3-d, computer generated video gamy stuff etc etc..
One good movie(Avatar, which I couldnt watch once the blue things started hopping in the video game world) does not justify 3-ding the normal nice animated movies or anything for that matter,,, 3D Harry potter or Breaking Dawn.. oh for crying out loud..
oh apple came out with a sleek iphone.!. sure we'll come out with a similar looking sleek thingamajig.. only this is just a phone, and it doesnt even work very well for normal phone calls.. just riding the current in thing train to nowhere...

Homelessness continues

Hubbs: Where is my wallet
Me: On your bed side table
Hubbs: My wallet is homeless, it doesnt have any permanent location
Me: Babes, your wallet has a place, in the pocket of whichever jeans you wear that day. Its like a consultant. It has a place to call home depending on the job!


Yuck things about today.. I woke up at 5 because of dear spoilt chew, and then couldnt go back to sleep... When my eyes dont get their beauty sleep, they become my spoilt and cranky kids..

The seagulls some days go nuts and circle in the parking lot visible from my window. Anything circling, rotating or any such thing is a big no-no. I have to mentally rewind it to not feel dizzy.. yuckety yuck.

The good thing about today.. I closed the window blinds to stop my peripheral vision from picking up the sea gulls :).
Its not raining.!!. and its fridayyyy..!! And kids in bright clothes in the p-patch garden!!

All the right reasons

Something goes wrong and we always want a quick fix and try to fix it for all the wrong reasons. Doesnt work!

This time I want to fix my head for the right reasons.

For my dearest, ever effervescent, resilient and adorable hubbs( there are not enough adjectives to describe him).. He deserves to be pampered and he deserves all the breaks and vacations that he wants!

For my passions, things that I cannot do because of silly fears and small bodily limitations..For all the dogs i could be fostering, all the food i could be cooking...

For family and friends, because they care and would love to see me be able to do what I want to do!

The way to any cure is kindness and selflessness!
Be as kind as you can be.....

Wednesday, March 09, 2011


Hubbs read a post on a blog(raptitude) about homeless objects in the house, responsible for clutter. And the way to reduce clutter is to throw away all objects that do not have a permanent home (location)!

And as usual, when he reads some amazing idea, he wants to apply it to something or use the analogy somewhere.. So we start discussing why there is so much clutter in the house and why we do have so many unnecessary things.

So I ask him, Tell me one thing which does not have a home.
Hubbs: what about that bottle of glue on the dressing table
Me: Oh that bottle is just visiting. It will go back home, to the office supplies box, in the white cupboard.
Hubbs: And when is that...
Me: dont know.. eventually... one of us has to pick it up and put it back.. its like guests back home, who dont want to leave when you want them to... unless you explicitly mention so... :D.. Atithi Tum Kab Jaaoge....

Its already wednesday

my eyes are better.. but the whole change in the regular schedule of course upsets me. It is quite boring, if I cannot read or browse or work on my blogs and such. The usual cooking and baking and walking also gets affected. and there is only so much of that i can do.. so its just boring to rest the eyes and listen to books..
oh well
I am getting them back track now and lets see how long they last this time.
I have to take some videos of chewter.. but he keeps sleeping most of the day.. i am going to put a webcam near his crate and get him a channel... the snoozer chew!

Back to bookmarking some recipes to try.. listening to jennifer crusie and updating the blogs.. u all have a fantastic day!

Thinking about people who follow their hearts!

This one is a shout out to people , who stopped what they were doing, figured out what their hearts wanted and started on that path!

Anu, who traded her 6 years of software career to do something about her love for animals, ..who now is a groomer and a future veterinarian( she will be amazing at it)... who rescues strays and finds them great homes!

Arati, who traded her s/w career to go to Whistling woods and now is ready to churn out some intellectual, intriguing and great cinema!

My relatives, Preeti Maasi and my cousin Arijay, who care for the strays in their locality, give them a healthy life, get them fixed so they cannot produce more strays with diseases and who do some other great things that I do not even know of!

To all the people out there, who stop to think and figure out ways to take some time out, to volunteer for causes they care for, who run, swim, bike, climb or do anything to raise cause awareness and to you and everyone else.

too much reading

last 2-3 weeks i've been stuck to the machine and reading a lot of stuff. A lot for me means some articles and some blogs :)
that got to me this friday with my eyes winging out..,yes they just wing out in some weird direction. and the the eyes co-ordination gets difficult. Both eyes converging a bit and co-ordinating is required for all the reading. . so I am on limited machine reading state since yest and continuing till tomorrow.
more in a day or so. time to listen to another jennifer crusie book.

Thursday, March 03, 2011


Gotta balance out the horrid news with some good some days..
starting a day with news about Vick, just putting me in a cursing fit and the mood sticks all day!
Read about Hector, one of the dogs rescued from Vick's dog fighting kennels, his story of transformation into a therapy dog here
Now that is one happy ending!
There also some news sites like with only happy and good news to cheer you up, or I can always look up puppy albums, or the kid on youtube laughing hysterically !

morning conversations

Hubbs " Chewie, did you eat your food"
Me "Yes"
Hubbs " Chewie, did you eat your almond"
Me "Yes, dont give him another one, he will get fat"
Hubbs "Time for your walk, Are you wearing your harness, chewie"
Me " No Its near his crate , or on the bed"
Hubbs "Chewie, where are you, lets go"
Me "He is sitting here waiting for me to finish breakfast, just in case I drop something"

Reading some dog blogs and trying to get out of funk caused by the perennially grey weather! I should seriously move out of Seattle when I am able to travel far!!
