What's your favorite food or dish?

Big fan of both Chinese and Japanese vegetarian dishes.

How old are you?


How long have you been and why are you a vegan or interested in becoming a vegan?

As noted above, I've been vegetarian since before the age of 25--as to why, the question should be, why isn't everyone at least vegetarian? I recognize that I should be vegan and I'm working on it.

What do you like to do in your free time?

Read, keep in touch with former colleagues about the state of the world, communicate with friends and family--particularly grandchildren--garden, play with my two cats.


Geezer, vegetarian for 50 years, 8 years living in Asia, [HK and Tokyo], in PDX since 1990. Have about 450 vegetarian/vegan cookbooks collected from all over the world, including some from early 1900s.
