1970's Horror Films

The 70's was a great year for horror: "The Exorcist", "Carrie", "The Omen", "Phantasm", "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre" & many more. But for me (squeaking in at 1979) it's "Alien". I thought I was going to have a heart attack from all the tension in that movie. Loved it!

It had everything a great horror movie should. Likable characters, who slowly get destroyed by an evil creature. Creepy atmosphere, that alien ship was straight out of HR Giger. An alien bursting out of a guys chest. A creepy robot who might just kill everybody. An evil corporate lackey who might just get everybody killed. One of the most terrifying screams (by Harry Dean Stanton). A bad ass lead woman; Ripley (Sigourney Weaver). And, a pissed off cat.

So Alien, of of the best horror movies of the 70's & all time.

Vegan, Vegatarian, Pescatarian, what to eat?

I was cleaning up dishes the other night i came to my cast iron skillet from the night before. I had cooked sausages for dinner & the pan was full of the nastiest greasy crap ever. I cleaned it out with a spatula & some paper towels and the cleaned & seasoned the pan as usual. As i thought about that nasty mess in the pan I thought about what it was leaving behind in my insides. I am thinking now about what my future
Of eating is going to be. As i write this I am almost 54 years old & i have not lived a terribly healthy life. I have recently given up died soda & it was pretty easy so giving up meat should be no problem.

I am giving up pork for sure, most likely all red meat. I am still going to eat fish for my protein & maybe chicken as well.
