I like being around compassionate people, people who THINK and CARE

I was a lacto-ovo vegetarian for 39 years when I discovered the horrors of the dairy and even "free-range" egg industries (how can we refer to animals as if they are manufactured products?). Been a vegan now for 2-1/2 years...never felt better! Really enjoy my food now :) Lost 25 lbs when I concentrated on "whole" foods. But it is really about the animals.... I feel great sadness and regret for condoning lacto-ovo, even finding excuses to use leather ("they aren't killed for leather"). The poor innocent creatures: their short, miserable lives and brutal deaths. Leather and dairy/meat subsidize each other...cows must have calves to produce milk- the boys live horrid, short lives and are killed for veal...just hatched male chicks are brutally killed because they are worthless... I am so very sorry
vegan, mostly "whole food" (no more leather, silk, wool either)
Animal lover! Took my profile photo at Animal Place during their Barn Warming. I don't know the boy, just recognized the natural affinity between species :) Love Animal Place and Farm Sanctuary! Gave away Animal Place calendars for Christmas.
nice to meet like-minded people! Especially happy to meet Cliff of Stone Lake Farms. Can't wait to visit his organic farm....he doesn't use gross fertilizers :) (read the ingredients in typical "organic fertilizer", you may be unpleasantly surprised). Let's buy his produce!
