Hello all. I'm new to this board, but I've been a vegan for almost 3 years now (along with my wife). I used to be a pretty hard-core meat eater. At some point I started questioning what I was doing and what humans in general were doing. Around that time I got the book "Mad Cowboy" by Lyman. That was the beginning. So I went vegan by the time I finished the book while doing further research, but mostly I became a vegan for health reasons at first. I kind of felt the treatment of animals was cruel, but I wasn't convinced at first that animals weren't "ours" to do with as we need or see fit.

I am convinced now though.

So anyways, here's a hello from Idaho.

Cheers and peas to all!

I believe everything.

Welcome to VB!

Just curious: Is there some significance to the fact that your screen name reads "marsdragon" in reverse?

Hello and thanks.

Amy, not any real significance. It's an user id I've used for awhile. I like space (and have an interest in Mars), and I read some of sci-fi and fantasy books. Not much anymore though. And I like dragons.

Then to make it unique I turn it around. It annoys me to have some name and I have to type in twenty variations, and I detest the nogardsram_0089...

I used to turn my name around and call myself Nosaj. Sounds more interesting that the other way. Lots of people's names sound funny turned around.

I believe everything.
