I must apologize to all on this tread. It is irresponsible of me to post a topic and pay so little attention or offer such a low level of participation.
For the past three months I have been trying to negotiate a contract renewal with the government. I have also been fending off a hostile take over,life can be so grand!
The good news is looks like I won. It's down to a final meeting,48 hours to the expiration of the present contract. Things actually may finally work. In two days I'm either dismantling the company of gearing up again.The good news is it is out of my hands and the verdict is forth coming!The facility I train in is part of the deal looks like the Dojo will survive.I train 7 months of the year in the shop.The other 5 months I train in the sunshine,rain and mosquitos.
I suspected that Ian might join us on this post. I am very glad he did we needed the medical and vegetarian knowledge to discuss some of these issues.Ian is the only self proclaimed vegetarian on the post. This post is not to attack Ian's belief's, he has been kind enough to present the other side of the coin ,you meat eaters take it easy on him please.
Ian I would like to thank you for the feed back on my daughters diet.I feel that a vegan diet is not healthy but one can provide all nutrition requirements if eggs,milk and cheese are included in the diet. I will continue to research the nutritional needs of my little girl, thank you for responding to the issue of iron and protein.
This debate seems to have a multitude of threads.
1.benifits and shortfalls of vegan,vegetarian and mixed diets.
3. animal rights
And now back to the debate!
