The recent California drought affected the rivers and streams in the vicinity. As a result, millions of juvenile salmon were endangered. These silvery smolts were unloaded in long plastic pipes then they made their way by floating in netted pens. Subsequently, after getting acclimated to the precious water they are then released  to the ocean by tides.

I reckon some of us might question this practice, but, moving these little guys by tanker trucks ensure the survival of millions. These will further develop and grow into California King Salmon. And then find their way to our tables…..hurrah!Like everything else in life, nothing is fool-proof. The thing is in three years, the migratory ones won’t be able to find their way back to their home because there is no scent to lead them. And, that’s rather sad. Now, where do they stray to?

Maybe, down the line, they will be able to create that special scent to lead them to their ‘door’. Eh, that’s something for us to ponder don’t you think?Our omega fatty-acids sources are gradually dwindling. I’m a wee bit sad.

I'm originally from the beautiful island of Jamaica. In Jamaica, we always find a reason to celebrate. And, when there's a celebration, there is music, fun and of course, food, great food. Presently, I reside in So. Florida.Living here in Florida offers varied cultures, people of different ethnic backgrounds. I've a great passion for the culinary side of life. Therefore, being in So. Fl., provides me the great accessibility of fresh seafood, fruits and vegetables. Moreover, I've the choice to indulge in a amazing foods from different cuisines.This ability provides great inspiration for me to retreat to my humble kitchenette and replicate these dishes.It warms my heart to be able to break bread with loved ones. I'm an avid reader and love to get lost between these beautiful words. I find reading to be a social activity because it allows me a peek inside other people's minds which in turn makes me more empathetic towards others. One day in the near future, I hope to publish my very own words in the area of poetry as well as my other love, food. Yoga and speed walking are just a few of the things that keep me balanced and centered. I love family and friends; and, of course, wholesome foods with a glass of cocktail. Life is what you make of it. And, I try to savor and enjoy the simple and precious moments.
