More like "Dela-where?". Yes, I'm suggesting a question mark be included in the name. Delaware's claims-to-fame:



It was the first (and worst) state to ratify the US Constitution.

It was the setting for Fight Club.

It was originally called "New Sweden".

It has the second-highest poultry output of all the states.

Bob Marley lived here for about 2 years, working in the Wilmington iron harbors, to make money to record his band.

It is the home of Dupont Chemicals, in all its evil glory.



And perhaps its greatest accomplishment: It is the ephemeral home of one Max Power.

Well since Delaware was at the bottom of the list, I thought I'd bring it back into focus. I'm going to DE tomorrow. This will be two days this weekend, is that a record?

Max, you might find this funny. I think I'm moving back to Delaware (Wilmington). My husband and I have a chance to get a house! I tried to stay away for so long- but oh well, I'm tired of renting. I think I might hate West Chester.

I'm surprised Delaware was even listed!



Delaware's not THAT bad... if you could just kick out all the power plants, farms, thugs and pretty much take out everything except the tax free shopping

Cool, Del. Rehobeth isn't that bad.

My aunt lives in Dover, so that's usually where I go when I go to DE.

I can't remember if the last time if I was in Wilmington or Dover.

I actually haven't been that far outside the Lewes/Rehoboth area. I think I was in Dover once.

Well, when I met my girl she was living in Delaware, and so I only went to see her. Now we have tons of friends at RB, so we go to see them. No reason to travel that extensively in the remainder of the state.

We're in Middletown and though it's quite boring at times... it's not too bad. The only thing that sucks is that we have no health food store here and no Target! (yet).

I live in Newark, DE. It is a collegey town, and there are health food stores, and the supermarkets near me have excellent vegan selections. Also, does anyone eat at 'Homegrown' in Newark? There food is the shizznit.

(DE is not that bad btw-it has beaches and is a reasonable train ride or drive to NYC or DC.-so don't be hatin')





I am a campaign coordinator for Delaware Action for Animals.

If anyone is interested in being on our mailing list, email me at [email protected] and tell us you want to be on it, and it shall be so.

I used to live in Newark, now I have to drive there every weekend to restock my vegan essentials. I only wish there were bigger selections and cheaper prices! I especially wish there was a healthfood store in Middletown. There's Willy Farms, but they have a smaller selection than anything in Newark.



Ever been to Main Squeeze next to the co-op? My friend (also vegan) works there. The veggie panini can be made vegan and it's the bizzy bomb!



I haven't been to Home Grown in over two years, do they have more vegan things on their menu? I loved their falafel pita sandwich, but it didn't love me back. What kind of stuff do they have at Sinclair's?

Homegrown is the one of the only places I eat at in DE. We rarely eat out though. I live in Wilmington. I was at that AR conferece at the Riverfront back in January- that was put on by AFA, right? I get the meet-up e-mails too, but we're pretty broke and they'll usually fall on a no-paycheck weekend

I love the Homegrown, so nice to go someplace where I have loads of choices on the menu. I'm working on my degree at UD, and I live in Claymont (my husband works in Philly.)

What's AFA?



The symposium for compassionate living w/ tom regan etc @ the waterfront-is that what you are referring to? If so-that was put on by DAA (DA4A.org)

I helped organize it.



You DE people should come to a DAA meeting! Fist wed of every month @ the newark library @ 7:00 pm (visit our website if you want more info, or contact me)

peace kiddies

I was thinking Action For Animals , but yeah, the event with Tom Regan. My husband and I were there ( we're both vegan). The catering was really good! I'd like to go to the DAA meetings, but we live in Wilmington and with our scheduele, there's just no way of getting down to Newark at that time during the week.

Please join Delaware Action for Animals as we protest KFC. We want them to adopt welfare guidelines suggested by their own Animal Welfare Advisory Panel, and urge the public to boycott KFC. In addition, we want to encourage veggie diets.



When?: Saturday May 21st @ 1:00 pm

Where?: 4303 KIRKWOOD HWY. WILMINGTON DE 19808

(Need last minute directions?-Their Phone # is: 302/995-7061)



Why KFC?

PETA is asking KFC to eliminate the worst abuses that chickens suffer on the factory farms and in the slaughterhouses of its suppliers, including live scalding, life-long crippling, and painful debeaking. The more than 850 million chickens killed each year for KFC are tortured in ways that would result in felony cruelty-to-animals charges if cats or dogs were the victims, but KFC still refuses to make any changes. As the leader in the chicken industry, KFC has a responsibility to ensure that the chickens raised for its buckets are protected from the worst cruelties.



See what actually goes on @ KFC's suppliers: http://www.petatv.com/tvpopup/Prefs....o=pilgrims_web



Chickens are inquisitive and interesting animals who are thought to be as intelligent as cats, dogs, and even primates. When in their natural surroundings, rather than on factory farms, they form friendships and social hierarchies, recognize one another, care for their young, and enjoy a full life of dustbathing, making nests, roosting in trees, and more. Please join us in protesting the egregious cruelty endured by these kind and horribly exploited animals.



A good turnout is much needed, these animals truly need your voice!
