Hey everybody how y'al doin'!<br><br><br><br>
I am your new member and to keep the peace and harmony I thought to introduce myself proper.<br><br><br><br>
I am a 29 year old woman of mixed ethnic descent, having had the bad luck and the very learning experience to have lived on the other side of the iron curtain. I am a vegetarian since forever and a vegan since 2002. Have never cheated on my diet at any other time than having been cheated once or twice by cheaky waiters and other intolerants! Ne'ermind they're forgiven....I've gotten more careful <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/wink3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=";)"><br><br><br><br>
Here I am then, tryin' the best I can to live a pure life. You too? Not easy huh, in this impure world.....all the more reason to do one's best! Agree?<br><br><br><br>
Well you take care now and I'm sure to meet and greet you at the forum.<br><br><br><br>
Love, Katia.

In answer to Mr. Alpaca, what I meant was that I was born in a communist country and grew up on the other side of the world (from starting point birthplace) again in a communist country.<br><br><br><br>
I live in The Netherlands.....where are you Mr. Alpaca and 1Vegan from?

Hi Katia!!!<br><br><br><br>
.........Thanks for the background insight about your<br><br><b>hard</b>(?) past in iron curtain/ communist existence.<br><br><br><br>
Your introduction for offering peace and harmony is great!!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br>
I am glad you now live in Europe, (I live in the UK).<br><br>
Hopefully now your life is better???<br><br><br><br>
I **totally agree** with your statement of it being hard to live a pure life in an impure world because for me also that is very very true!!!!.. but yes we must do the best we can together to<br><br>
keep earth clean and green... and our food "nonGM"....and so on....<br><br><br><br>
Welcome Katie!... I really hope you post as often as you can! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br><br><br>

But pray do tell me <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"> 1Vegan, where are you from?<br><br><br><br>
In answer to Veganconda, I never said I had it bad before, and I never said I have it better now! It was meant as a kind of a joke, preying on peoples' assumptions.....<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/wink3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=";)">

I thought you were trying to say "very <b>hard</b> learning experiences"...and forgot the word <b>"hard"</b> but it looks like I too was mistaken in guessing what you had intended...<br><br>
So you didn't say hard, I know that but then you did say "bad luck", so that is how I made my "educated guess" (as opposed to assumption).<br><br>
I think for us to make assumptions would be foolish... but its ok, please proceed to tell of how your situation is now if you want.

Where does 1vegan live? well, lets just say its close to you . . . <i>very</i> close <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"><br><br><br><br>
A play on peoples' assumptions of communism? ohhhh, I like you already!<br><br>
Yes! please tell us of the differences of living under the two very different ways of thinking.<br><br>
(I would LOVE to get an opinion of communism in general and not the socialist governments that most take for communism today.)

Wait a minute, this is toooo many responses at once.<br><br><br><br>
"Where does 1vegan live? well, lets just say its close to you " ---uh no, a Dutchman as well?!!! ayyaiyaiay <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">)<br><br><br><br>
Coorection 1Vegan: born in Bulgaria (father Bulgarian, mother Russian Jewish) grew up in Cuba. A true "red" child...sounds almost like a "flower" child, eh, only one could also imagine far worse associations with the color red.....<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/wink3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=";)"><br><br><br><br>
Anywayz, guys, communism is a beautiful theory as such, wouldn't you say! It is the practise of it that sucks. The fact is people are not ready for such system, after all the world is driven by the ego, which in communist theory is enemey number one, so the clash is rather fundamental.<br><br><br><br>
What is it like living in Australia? That's an area I've never been to.

Don't worry about that, but if you get a ticking off you can easily put it right, it not a problem... Michael (of admin) is a pretty chilled<br><br>
kind of guy.<br><br><br><br>
Otherwise: You may find this of use for resizing: It shows the newbies how to instrument technocratic pixel skills automatically.. (apparently)!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/thumbsup.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":up:"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"><br><br><br><br>
For newbies out there BELOW is an "Example pic" I found at an associating graphics site of <a href="http://www.graphixkingdom.com" target="_blank">www.graphixkingdom.com</a> which allows you to press an "edit link" (under each & every graphic) that takes you to a page back on the <a href="http://www.myimager.com" target="_blank">www.myimager.com</a> site ... already for editing...so that when desired each graphic on <a href="http://www.graphixkingdom.com" target="_blank">www.graphixkingdom.com</a> can take you prediposed to where you need to be using the "Edit" link provided should you want to enhance your graphic in various ways which as said is back on the <a href="http://www.myimager.com" target="_blank">www.myimager.com</a> page! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">
