We all are feed.

So I have to admit that my grammar and spelling are terrible.

 My dear friend was looking at Vegease blog and questioned my caption at the top of the home page.

“Hey…,
I accessed (your blog) from my computer and it’s a lot better! 🙂  The phone sucks LOL.
I just had a question.  Your quote about Jah – should it be “we are all feed” or “we are all fed”.  If it’s feed I’m not sure I like it – it gives me the heebie jeebies that I’m food for something haha!
…Luv M”

Are we all feed?

Worm feed.  Lion feed.  Fish feed.

I changed it but wondered if I should leave it.
