Hello all,<br><br><br><br>
Wanted to say hi and to say I am very new to all of this. Just starting on the vegan road. I adore animals and I am just sick to death with what they are doing to them and what that does to our bodies also. I know this is going to be tough and I have lots to learn. I'm a single Mom of a beautiful 17 year old son, I'm a "young" forty something year old..lol..and I live in Bergen county, New Jersey.If you have some good places to share on information, I would so love to check it out and would very much appreciate it<br><br>
Hope it is warm and sunny where you are. Summer does not seem to be coming here.<br><br><br><br>
Hugs and blessings,<br><br>
Tone (as in Toni)

I think the eastern US is having monsoon season, as opposed to summer, from the looks of things outside my windows right now.

First off, Hi Tone! hehe. Hope you're enjoying VB so far. And Welcome! This place is great! You'll have a lot of fun here!<br><br><br><br>
And Oatmeal said it's better if I explain the banana slut thing. lol. I gave him that nickname because it's his favorite food. I mentioned one day that he'd do ANYTHING for bananas. And that makes him a banana slut. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"><br><br><br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br><br><br>
Once again, welcome! See you around!

Hi Fa or would that be frap? lol so Oatmeal is a banana lover eh? hmmmm. He would love it by my dad's place in Puerto Rico. He has tons of banana trees with the stalks weighing in about 80lbs each. It's funny he gets so sick of bananas and then he comes here and buys them..lol I guess worse things are to be had then to be a banana slut. That is cute! Ya know..I always sign my name "Tone" cause I realized that for half my life I was signing it "Ton". Now that is worse..lol<br><br><br><br>
hugs,<br><br>
Toni who is being silly on this so called Summer day

Welcome from another "young, forty-something" woman, and congratulations on becoming vegan! For me, it's one of the best and most important things I've ever done. You will encounter challenges as a vegan, but it's worth every one! This board is one of many good resources available for information and support, so please don't be shy - we're happy to assist in every way we can! Glad to have you here - it's nice to have another person here who celebrates her birthday with a similar number of candles on her cake! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">
