I still appreciate all the encouragement and ideas I get from others -- and
if you started going raw 25 years ago that was truly awesome.  
I've always recognized the value of organic (way back to Rodale's time) and
have never been all that inclined to eat meat, and have been gluten/casein
free for about seven years - but intro to "raw" as such was only about three
years ago when it was much better established.

Yes, we started asking people to give this info a while back in response to
people with specific sensitivities and since seen that it's been a great
learning tool besides!   

Be well - Joan

Thank you Joan; we all start pretty 'green' (no pun
intended)  - - it sure makes it easier if we have help
along the way.  25 years ago I struggled to find my way
thru the maze of going from the standard american diet
to vegan..   I've never forgotten how hard it was for
me.  Now I view it as going from the 'completely
unfamiliar to the familiar'..   so it becomes much
easier, plus there's so much information available
today. . its a tremendous benefit for those new to this
wondrous and gentle lifestyle.

You must have more patience than I...   when people
start talking about their 'meds' I usually remove
myself from the situation -- or change the
conversation.   I can't listen to that anymore.... . it
seems so barbaric to me; sort of from the dark ages..
its time to come out of those beliefs and behaviors - -
yet they treat meds or surgeries as if they're badges
of honor..to be held in awe and esteem..   Its all so
ridiculous to me.

I love your suggestion about putting names and lists of
ingredients on any pot luck dish. .  that's a great
idea...    I often think of that 'during or after' an
event..  Must make a note of that..

Chris
