I was born and raised in Tampa. I miss it. My best (female) friend and my mom are still there. Oh, to see a palm tree...

Chokoloskee Island, just outside Everglades City, in the southwest corner. Mosquitos are out here! Moving soon, thank goodness, but I'll be back someday.

Hey all you groovy guys and gals! Looking for a little excitement this coming June? Why not drive over to Atlanta for the veg*n gathering!!

A good time is guaranteed for all. Vegan food, hot chicks, and fun!! You know you want to go! The more the merrier!

veganchick 05-21-2003 10:31 AM

muppetcow~ Are you getting some financial compensation for your great advertising abilities? (Telling all about the veg gathering.)

muppetcow 05-21-2003 02:08 PM

No, Veganchick, I'm not getting any $$. LOL. But, my motives are purely selfish, I must admit. I really want people to come to this thing! I only know a couple of vegetarians in real life and no vegans, so I'm itching to know some.

GhostUser 05-28-2003 03:49 PM

Hey, I'm in Orlando too...well, at least I will be in a couple of weeks when I get back from NY.

hopi100 05-29-2003 10:19 AM

Hey! I'm from Tallahassee -- where the state government fun never ends....

Nice to meet you folks!

sandiemac 06-04-2003 12:27 PM

i'm in the boonies of zephyrhills

GhostUser 06-12-2003 06:05 PM

Anyone here from the Palm Beach County area? I'm hoping to move to Boca or Delray within the next few months. Anything you could tell me about the area would be groovy!

GhostUser 06-19-2003 10:23 PM

I really hope God will become vegan. Then she would take more sympathy on me and find me a Miami vegan friend. :}~

If you are a South Florida veg-head, or know one, that is 21 years of age or younger don't hesitate to email me.

I'll pay you!

Well, no, I won't. But, if you care to speak with this intelligent, often vibrant veg who is sure to keep a very good conversation email me!

I'm here in Jacksonville. This town is not very vege friendly. By the way LuthienAmandil, I use to travel to Delray for work, it is very slow paced and quiet and mainly a reitrement community. Check out the cheesecake factory while you're there for dinner. Lots of luck!;D

shedonteatmeat 06-26-2003 11:27 PM


I live in Panama City, but will be visiting Jacksonville in a few weeks to see a friend. Any recommendations of places to eat or shop?


grain_girl 06-27-2003 09:05 PM

shedonteatmeat - The Hovan Mediterranean Gourmet has great falafel! I don't know of any veg*n restraunts here, though.

As far as shopping, you might want to check out the Jacksonville Landing, and the Regency and Orange Park mall.

Hope you have a nice time!

shedonteatmeat 06-27-2003 10:06 PM

Thanks grain_girl!

I'll definetly check it out!! I've never tried falafel and really want to! No restaurants sell it around here... and I haven't gotten around to making it myself yet. lol.

Rie 06-30-2003 11:56 AM

I grew up in Pensacola, and have been living in Orlando since December.

SuicideBlonde 06-30-2003 12:28 PM

I have lived in Tampa all my life. I probly could not live in a place that has very harsh winters, but I would appreciate a good public transportation system.

GhostUser 07-03-2003 01:49 AM

*NEW* Panama City, Florida Vegan Website!

Hey everybody! I just started up a site called "PC Vegan", it's main purpose is to bring people in the area together... to find more vegans & vegetarians... basically, to spread the veggie goodness! :P

(site is a work in progress...just got it up, so most of it is still to come!)

If you live *anywhere* remotely near Panama City, Fl and would like to be included in the "People!" section of the site, EMAIL ME!

[email protected]

It'd be really great to see how many of us there are around! Panama City is located in Bay County. That is in Northwest Florida, in between Tallahassee and Pensacola. Seriously, surround states and anywhere in florida even!

I hope to use the site as a jumping point for a Veg Group and maybe even for Animal Rights Activism & Protests! Depending on what sort of response we get. *crosses fingers*

Please check it out! Spread the word!

oneness 07-08-2003 11:02 PM

very cool kelly. the site looks great.

GhostUser 07-09-2003 06:30 AM

Hey, please anyone answer this for me. I just got back yesterday from a week in Orlando and saw the most disturbing thing I've ever seen. I'm hoping that someone here will tell me they were fake and somehow they made them look very real.

I was in one of the gift shops and saw what looked like a dead baby shark in a plastic container. Is this for real?? I almost passed out when I saw it. Are these a by-product of some other industry? I feel super motivated to try and do something about this but I need more info. Thanks!

shedonteatmeat 07-09-2003 10:21 AM

Yikes! That's horrible

I've never seen them...sorry I can't help.

GhostUser 07-09-2003 12:26 PM

The shop is called Magic Castle Gift Kingdom on Highway 192 going toward Walt Disney World in Kissimmee. I'm looking into it. If they sharks are real, you best believe I'm going to write the the Gov. of Florida and anyone else. If they aren't real, they've done a really good job of fooling me. That is just wrong.

grain_girl 07-10-2003 07:53 PM

I've seen those in the beachside gift shops. I'm almost certain they are real.

GhostUser 07-11-2003 07:51 AM

I've been trying like mad to find out where they are coming from and all kinds of other related info. I've had no luck so far. Do you think if I contacted PETA they may know? I would think that this may be something at one point they would have been involved in trying to stop. I am really really motivated to at least try and do something about this. The first step is determining where they are coming from and by what means. Any info anyone can give me would be great.

GhostUser 07-12-2003 05:42 PM

A newbie stoppin by to say hi. I live in Coconut Creek which is about 15 minutes North of Ft. Lauderdale. I have been a vegetarian for 8 yrs and am happy that I found this site since everyone I know eats meat.

oneness 07-13-2003 12:55 AM

welcome Missy... glad you have found us..


those are real, but i have no clue where they come from and why they would want to put dead baby sharks in a bottle.. this world has gone mad!
