Hi all, I've just discovered Veggieboard rather surprisingly via Goodreads
.
I've been vegetarian for ages now - was earlier in my life too but lapsed for convenience and disliked it so much I came straight back to vegetarianism. One of my daughters is also vegetarian and has been since she was 12. I have always had a strong interest in animal rights, have been a member of Animal Liberation for years, and feel strongly about live animal exports, and non free range hens (apart from anything else).

Aside from that my interests include reading - love books! and gardening. I try to live a fairly straightforward life, simple but happy.

There is a small group of Aussies on VB but I find it doesn't matter where you are from friends are easily made.

Out of interest where do you hail from? I am in Perth.

Thanks for the welcome everyone.

One question (so far). Why am I a junior member and everyone else is senior? Does it relate to the number of posts? Cant be age surely cos I'm 51!

Yep, it's based on number of posts. You can customize it to any short phrase you'd like under General Settings.

I like what yours says! I just scared myself thinking what year it was when I went vegan... LOL! I was still a raucous teenager, now I'm close to 30!! How time flies.

Thank you.
I went veg when I was 15. It's been almost 18 years now... well, most of it... I had some unfortunate cravings while pregnant, so I lost some "cool" points.
