Hey, go fer it. Kosher's only necessary if you're leaning to Orthodox-land. I was brought up kosher but my folks are a lot laxer than they were then. We don't keep kosher (we don't have pork and beef in the house because I don't eat them, less to do with religion than to do with food restrictions, but we don't make sure the chicken or turkey is kosher, although we should more for health reasons than anything else), my brother does, it's all good.
lmur, if the lion and the lamb lie down together, doesn't the meerkat get jealous?
