Naturally, I am very pleased to see this.

Having been lacto-veg for 19 years, I've been trying to edge closer to being vegan. But it's hard. I seem to require a lot of fat, being the nervous type that I am.

My daughter, who has done a bit of Bambi assasination during hunting seasons past, has been a vegetarian for a few years (and so obvously no longer hunts). So when Eileen is home we just prepare veggie meals for her while Mary Clare, our son Joe if he's home, and I enjoy our more predatory meals.


I'm all for anyone who wants to be a vegan to be one. After all, along with my personal predatory antics regarding edible animals I also thoroughly enjoy committing spinachside, dismemberment of celery stalks, mutilating tomatos, and slaughtering helpless lettuces.


Why I've even successfully hunted with great stealth those carefully camoflaged and well dug in yummie roots called potatos!

Being a vegetarian for years and years I have to admit I love cheese too.  We don't do butter at home or milk, except soy, and I will crave an egg every once in a while, but cheese is something I do love.  I buy the vegan cheese slices sometimes, but do the real thing more often.


I have a friend who has a line of vegan cookies and products, but she and her husband are about to locate to south Texas.  Think they will ship their products up here for a while, but most likely look for customers in Austin, instead of Dallas. (TX, of course)

As a cook, I have found that almost any vegan recipe can be improved by the addition of some beef stock or chicken stock.

Republicans think the glass is theirs.
Libertarians want to break the glass, because they think a conspiracy created it.

...the usual comments by the usual suspects who just don't 'get' what this is all about.


Ho-hum.

I think it's good that the movement has grown. When I was a vegetarian, it and veganism were still considered something hippies did. I'm no longer a vegetarian for health reasons, but I do purchase free-range meats and eggs. I would buy more things organic, but cost is an issue so I do what I can.

Oh, I "get" what it's all about.  I'm just tired of hearing about it.
