Hi to everybody!<br><br><br><br>
I became vegan in July last (2002) year after being vegetarian for 9 years. I'd like to chat to people with similar views to me on this subject as I don't know many vegetarians and no vegans!<br><br><br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

Thanks!<br><br><br><br>
I don't mind at all! I have been posting on the (rather quiet) worldveganday board & a member there (Twain) suggested I try this board.<br><br><br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

I was just looking at that site earlier. I think someone posted a link to it and I had never been there before. Things are fairly active here (obviously not in the middle of the night) so hopefully we'll be able to keep your interest!

The site is pretty useful there, but I guess it's a vicious circle with the forum. People don't post there unless there are lots of people are posting!!<br><br><br><br>
It seems great here though <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D">

Do you hang out with Essex Vegans? -there's thousands of them! And some of the London Vegans are Essexites too and meet up every five minutes <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"><br><br><br><br><a href="http://www.veganessex.org.uk" target="_blank">www.veganessex.org.uk</a><br><br><br><br><a href="http://www.londonvegans.freeserve.co.uk/" target="_blank">www.londonvegans.freeserve.co.uk/</a>

I've been trying to get to one of their meetings but they are held on the 1st Tues of every month (when I used to have tutorials for a part time course I'm studying). Hopefully my tutorials will be on another day when my course restarts in Feb, so I can go along and join them! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

Because I consider, and wish, my home to be London, that site makes me awfully homesick <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/bigcry.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":cry:"> I love England so much. The first listing on their Vegan Guide to Essex is right around the corner from my family that still lives there! It's so sad!!!<br><br><br><br>
Anywho, Welcome Vicky!

Thanks luckiecharms, I'll try to check out that thread!<br><br><br><br>
gOdDeSsoFvEgA - I used to visit relatives in Wales (Cardigan in Dyfed) every summer when I was young. It's good to hear it's not bad for vegans as I'd love to go back sometime! Wales is cool <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D">

If it helps matters - the weather is lowsy at the moment! It has suddenly turned very frosty & ffffrrrreeezing!!! What's the first listing on the vegan guide to Essex? Basildon or something? If so, that's about 10 minutes drive from me! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

Hey Vicky - snow in Kent too. We didn't believe it wouldn't thaw overnight and went for a walk at 11pm Monday , got back at midnight. We made the first footprints, saw badger and fox tracks and it was bliss. Friggin freezin'though.
