Not sure if this is the right place to post this.<br><br><br><br>
In helping to spread the word about vegetarianism/veganism our local newspaper featured me in an article titled, "A Vegan dispels health myths".<br><br>
It centered around our terrible obesity problem in the country and what dairy and meat REALLY does to our body and that it is NOT needed for us to grow and think and all the other crap we have been taught our whole lives. Oh, I didn't say crap in the article, I said ****! LOL!!!! Didn't say that either <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br><br><br>
There are a few additions to the paper depending on the region. The one region the article is on the front page with a color photo of me eating at where else but VEGAN TREATS! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/dancingbanana.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":nana:"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/hungry.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":hungry:"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/hungry.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":hungry:"><br><br>
I took the editor to Vegan Treats to meet Danielle, the owner. She ended up interviewing her also.<br><br><br><br>
Well, I don't have the article. It is not online, but the pics are.<br><br>
Here ya go!<br><br><a href="http://lehighvalleynewsgroup.mycapture.com/mycapture/folder.asp?event=149001" target="_blank">http://lehighvalleynewsgroup.mycaptu...p?event=149001</a><br><br><br><br>
Hint - WHENEVER you see an article or column in your local newspaper about any type of eating habits and lifestyles ALWAYS contact the writer and mention your lifestlye! This is a great way for us to spread the word. If there is a local vegetarian/vegan restaurant ask the writer/editor to meet you there to really see what we eat and how we 'survive' (since nobody outside of our lifestlyes think we can survive without meat and dairy). Also, set it up with the owner of the store you wish to meet at. This way they will be prepared and the samples should be free to the writer. Look for teh local FREE papers also. They are always looking for articles to write. DON'T BE AFRAID TO DO THIS!!!!! ALL THEY CAN SAY IS NO. If you never try you cannot succeed.<br><br><br><br>
LET'S KEEP IT GOING EVERYONE!!! GOD I LOVE THIS STUFF!!!!!!!!!<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/hump.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":hump:"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/hump.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":hump:">

I see you have a quote from the Farm Sanctuary site...<br><br>
That is where I filmed my second DVD. I love the place! Our daughter is there for the weekend. They are honoring all the past interns and she was so excited to go back!

Go Barry! My daughter is another who disspells the notion that vegeterians are weaklings. She is nearly 13 and <i>sprouting</i> all over the place. There is no lack of anything on her (Looks for cage to keep her in until she is 18)<br><br><br><br>
And Barry...is that Bethlehem Pennsylvania?

Good morning young lady!<br><br>
How are you?<br><br>
Listen to this: I am sitting at Panera bread working as usual and a gu comes up adn mentions that he read the article. He said he had a niece that is vegan..anyway when he leaves he says,..nicely...'I will stay carnivore for awhile. My mom lived to be 94".<br><br>
I smiled and said 'Have a nice day'.<br><br>
My only problem with this is that NOBODY thinks of the animals..that is very sad.<br><br>
Last night I was watching something on Alaska Wildlife. They showed 2 polar bears wreslting and playing. They were surrounded by hundreds of miles of snow and ice..just white, white , white all over. Nothing else. I turned to my wife and said 'the saddest part about this is that there are hunters just WAITING to kill them even as they play. How can any human on this planet think it is OK to kill something like this. We as a human race have issues. Very serious issues!" I was so sad after that.<br><br><br><br>
well, anyway..good morning!!!

Regarding your other statements. I agree with you. However, we won't change everyone. We will and can help some to see things this way. Perhaps in generations to come veg will be the norm.
