Hi everybody.

I am a new forum member, even though I have been lurking and reading for a few months. Needless to say, I love it.

I went vegetarian about a year ago, well actually that was about my 3rd or 4th time of swearing off meat, but it never lasted more than 6 weeks before. This time it stuck.

It stuck so well, that I became vegan a few months ago, cold tofu, even though I thought I would have to ease into it.

I live in Johnson City, Tennessee and I am 38 years old. Definitely not a "kennyBOY" but even though I continue to get older, I hope I NEVER grow up.

I hang around online over at the PPK a lot. I try to spread the gospel around here at home whenever I can. I hand out brochures on occassion, I write letters to the editor, I piss my friends off on occassion, etc.

I am really thankful for the forums and all of the other vegan resources that I have discovered online. When I was first considering the change, I was like "How in the hell can I do this?". All of the info available online really helps.

Now that I've gotten into the swing of things and have become accustomed to cooking my tail off every day, I even started my own website to help show new up and coming vegans that there are TONS of food options available besides meat & cheese.

One of my great inspirations was Vegan Lunch Box. I decided I wanted to do something similar, but show what an adult vegan might pack for lunch every day before they head off to work. So I started Vegan Lunchtime Porn last week.

If it weren't for online resources like Veggie Boards, the PPK and Vegan Lunch Box, I might have never known how simple it can really be to live a cruelty-free life and I might not have ever made it here.

I am glad I here now at this point in my life. And I want to do everything I can to help others wake up and see that their life doesn't have to require the abuse, torture and murder of innocent beings.

Hi Kenny! Welcome to VB.

I have a habit of following links on websites to other websites to other websites. You get the picture. Anyway I followed a link through your post all the way to savethesheep.com

I had a good cry watching the video. It was a good reminder why I am veg. Thanks. As odd as it sounds I needed a pick me up today about a good thing I am doing in my life.
