I know you have family in Turkey. Were any of them impacted by the earthquake?
Offering positive thoughts and prayers for the families that have been injured and/or lost loved ones.
Keeping you in my thoughts, too!
It takes 12 pounds of grain and 2500 gallons of water to produce ONE POUND of beef.
Livestock generates 65% of all human-related nitrous oxide, which is 296 times more warming to the environment than carbon dioxide; 37% of all human-related methane, which 23 times as warming as CO2; and 64 percent of ammonia, which contributes significantly to acid rain.

Thank you for your thoughts and prayers! Fortunately, my family is in Istanbul (Western Turkey) and Van is in Eastern Turkey. It's very sad and my thoughts and prayers go out to everyone there, as well.
Glad everyone is okay. My sister is in Istanbul right now too!

Deniz I'm so glad everyone is okay. My husband is going there in May, I'm totally going to hit you up for opinions/advice, if you don't mind!

Glad your family is well (and your sister too Laurie!) I wasn't sure what part they were in.
Thanks for the update!
