Hi CG and vincent. (You seem strangely familiar CG.....)
Sorry to be a source of disappointment imagineaa.
I think I went vegan on New Years Eve 1996 having been veggie for around 5 or 6 years. Just wished I'd been brought up vegan from birth but it took me over 40 years to get here. Leeds is quite poor for veg*ns and I guess that Middlesbrough is the same?
