The Baltimore Vegan Meetup Group Message Board › EarthSave Veggie Events
Lutherville Timonium, MD
Hi Vegan Meetup Member,
I thought I’d send you a reminder of great event that will happen this Saturday, Feb. 12th. EarthSave’s Veg Dinner Lecture Series has a good speaker, great food, and some music we think you will enjoy. I’m sending a brief excerpt from the free monthly e-news that I write for EarthSave. If you’d like to receive the newsletter regularly, just let me know by writing Baltimore@earthsave.org.
You can also get more info on EarthSave Baltimore website at http://baltimore.eart..., and lots of good general information at the national website at http://www.earthsave.....
EARTHSAVE ...educating people about the powerful effects our food choices have on the environment, our health, and all life on Earth.
Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of humans as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger in the long run is no safer than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure or nothing.

Here's some great news about the activities of EarthSave Baltimore, and some related events that we think you might be interested in. 2005 marks our eighth year as an EarthSave chapter in Baltimore, and marks the beginning of an ambitious new expanded list of activities for our local chapter. We are off to a great start!!
FEBRUARY DINNER: On Saturday, February 12th, at 6 pm, our guest speaker will be Lauren Bateman, RN, who will speak on "The Best of Both Worlds in Health Care". Lauren received Board Certification as a Clinical Specialist in Adult Psychiatric and Mental Health Nursing in 1990. She has provided clinical care for 20 years and, for the past 11 years, has independently studied natural ways to achieve health and well being. We will also be treated to the music of the popular singer/songwriter/guitarist Doug Mattingly who sees his music as spiritually informed pop/rock. You can learn more about Doug and hear his music at http://www.dougmattin... .net/.
FEBRUARY 17th VIDEO NIGHT: On third Thursdays of each month, at 6:45 pm, videos will be shown at the Robertson home at 517 Talbott Ave., at Morris Avenue in Lutherville. The February 17th presentation will be "Mad Cowboy: The Documentary," a film based on the best-selling autobiography of Howard Lyman, a former fourth generation Montana cattleman and feedlot operator who now lectures on the benefits of an animal-free diet. On the Oprah show, he spoke out about the dangers of Mad Cow disease, and found himself, along with Oprah, engaged in Court disputes for the next six years. With great wisdom and countrified humor, Howard leads us across the country as he tells his story. Film is 100 minutes. Admission is a $2 donation. Please RSVP by the previous day. Directions to the Lutherville location are at http://baltimore.eart... ve.org/.

ONE STEP AT A TIME: Congratulations are in order to General Mills, the maker of Cheerios, Wheaties, and other popular breakfast cereals, for its decision to make all its cereals from whole grains. The new, healthier versions of Trix, Lucky Charms, and Coco Puffs, and others should be on the grocery shelves soon. Now, about the sugar content.
PLEASE REMEMBER to be the peace that you wish to manifest. Thank you, and be well.
EarthSave ...May all be fed. May all be healed. And may all be loved.
