Janmashtami (also late post)

Krishna's Birthday was a couple days ago, and I had to work:(.  I wound up having snow peas and tofu, and vegetable egg rolls.  I wished all my co-workers and customers a Happy Janmashtami >:)  Normally, I do a lot more, but I can only do so much when I work....  I hope everyone had a nice celebration. Sometime soon, I hope, I can catch up on the REAL matters for this blog, the science of Krishna Consciousness.
