Vegan firefighter revives kitten

A Fresno firefighter rescued a kitten that was barely clinging to life, and it was all captured on his helmet camera. It was a fitting job for the ten year veteran. He’s sometimes teased for being an eco-friendly vegan.

Oppose Farm Bill

The House defeated an amendment to strike down the infamous “King amendment.” Authored by Rep. Steve King (R-IA), this language would nullify a variety of state laws on animal welfare, food safety, and environmental regulations. It represents perhaps the biggest government favor yet to the meat and dairy industries, and we can’t allow it to be signed into law.

BLUEBERRY COBBLER

The whitish “bloom” that gives fresh, plump blueberries a powdery appearance is a good thing. It’s a natural protective coating and should not be washed off until you’re ready to eat them. Refrigerate them right away in a covered container that is not made of metal.
