A trip to Hong Kong (and the rest of the far east) in the late 1980s

changed my life! After looking at the snake specials, I never ate meat


My mother didn't eat meat. My father ate meat, but not recently (he was

in a nursing home the past five years).

Anyway, my sister and I have been cleaning up the mess of a family home

after the deaths of our parents. I looked in the downstairs freezer, and,

uh, it's loaded with steaks....
