For every good reason there is to lie, there is a better reason to tell the truth. - Bo Bennett
It’s no surprise to anyone that I spend far too much time on Facebook. Although I’ve learned the value of hiding posts that are upsetting, I haven’t gotten used to the number of lies that are out there. Or to the fact that even in the face of irrefutable proof, the people who post the untruths and the ones who share those posts will spread those lies. It bothers me a lot.
I realized that I’d changed my mind about something. (And, no, the skies did not open with floods because I actually did that.) I always thought that of all the things that are bad for the world in general, greed was the worst. People are willing to let other people die because of greed, for heaven’s sake—what could be worse?

The Teriyaki sauce gives an Asian touch to these fast kabobs. Serve with a fresh vegetable salad, potato salad and or coleslaw and you’ll have a complete summer meal for your family.
