What an exciting day I had!! I just got back from marching in the big St. Patrick’s Day Parade on Fifth Avenue! As I am from Irish descent (at least I am today when everyone’s Irish!), it was so much fun to meet so many friendly fellow Irishmen. From the bagpipers of County Clare, the marching bands (I always wanted to play the tuba but I never grew tall enough…) to New York’s finest, I want to thank everyone for welcoming me.

Getting ready!!

My very good, close, personal, Friends :-)

New York's Finest with New York's Cutest!!!

I LOVE a good Marching Band, don't you??!!?!!
Happy Saint Patrick's Day!!!

Those of you who follow my Post know that I like to share thoughts about being socially responsible. Please read on…

The Humane Society of New York would like to commend Whole Foods Market for the well-crafted design of the new animal welfare labeling system. When given the choice, many consumers prefer humanely raised meat, but they are rarely provided with accurate or sufficient labeling. By implementing a tiered system, Whole Foods Market has supplied consumers with valuable information about the products they buy and simultaneously created an incentive for meat producers to improve the conditions of their farms. We are hopeful other supermarkets will be moved to adopt your standards, and we would like to thank Whole Foods Market for helping consumers make informed decisions about animal welfare when purchasing their food.
