Teeth

Went to the grocery store today. But before that I woke up a bit after nine, attended an online meeting that I was 15 minutes late logging into which was not a big deal after all because it started late anyways. After that I decided to sleep some more, I love sleeping (in case you didn't know). I forced myself to leave the house a bit after noon and go do something. First I got a latte. I have been looking at espresso machines because I think that I will get one - finally. I just can't decide on which model. Then I went to the grocery store and I got this.



Salad and tea for me and peanuts for my squirrel friends. And toothpaste. My teeth have been hurting and I think I figured out why. A few weeks ago I ran out of my usual toothpaste (Colgate Total) so I got some other toothpaste and my teeth started hurting after about a week or so. It finally dawned on me that I probably needed to go back to my regular toothpaste. And then I read that the best toothpaste is Colgate Total and Crest Pro Health, I never tried Crest Pro Health but I got some today. I need to make sure my teeth stay healthy even though I am getting a bit long in the tooth.
So I don't know if you spend much time reading/watching news. I get my news and information about current events from several different sources and if I want to learn more about something specific or a certain person I read up on the topic in depth like on Wikipedia. Well.....humans suck. Reading the news is depressing. The world is a sad and terrible place. I am SO grateful that I decided as a teenager to not have kids because back then I already knew that I did not want to subject a child to living here in this chaos. I am just navigating through this life.....and everyday I get sad and upset by things that I read and see. There is bad stuff everywhere. People are awful. Like really.
I appreciate the good people out there and I try to do good too. To make it easier or better for someone or another living being.
Just wanted to say that before I brush my teeth and get ready for bed.
Do something good today for someone. Be kind to animals. And eat less meat or stop eating meat completely.
Jane Goodall from September 2020, "If we would just stop eating all of this meat, the difference would be huge because all of these billions of farm animals … kept in concentration camps to feed us, and, you know, whole environments are wiped out to grow the grain to feed them,” Goodall said. “Masses of fossil fuel are used to get the grain to the animals, the animals to the abattoir, the meat to the table. Masses of water, which is in such short supply and drying in some areas, is used to get vegetable-to-animal protein. And, finally, they’re all producing gas in their digestion and that’s methane, and that is a very virulent greenhouse gas.” The 86-year-old animal activist urged viewers to reconsider their diets, stating, “If everybody ate less meat, or preferably no meat, it wouldn’t only reduce cruelty, but it would also have a huge impact, positive impact on the environment.”
Thank You Jane. One day I want to be an activist too. I love people that make a positive difference. So not ALL people are bad but too many are. The world is a sad place indeed.
