Random Pics from my Memorial Day Weekend

May 29, 2008

I always look forward to Memorial day weekend because it marks the beginning of barbecue season for my family. Barbecues are my favorite family event, this is where you get to hear stories from the old timers about how things used to be in the borough. It’s always been interesting to hear these stories particularly because most of them take place on the blocks I walk on everyday. Here’s a few pics from my weekend as we grilled out in my uncles backyard.

    nice looking family but why the meat?
    couldn’t or wouldn’t vegetarian be an option?
    This from an article in the most recent issue of Wired: “Researchers at the University of Chicago showed that a meat-intensive diet of the average American generates 1.5 more tons of greenhouse gases per year than the diet of a vegetarian.”

    While no one is expected to be perfect and let’s face it being a vegetarian isn’t the end all or be all for as you know Hitler himself was a vegetarian albeit a horrible one(he has a perverse penchant for chocolate), but it does make a difference in this world we share whether it be in Clinton Hill.

    Just words.
