I'm not a MARV member, but I maintain their website (contents isn't mine, I just put it on the site).

We do go to their potlucks now and then. And we always go to the thanksgiving dinner. Do you go there?

I hope we can meet up!
Maybe at the next potluck?

Just ware a flower in your hair so I recognize you.

Hi Slynny!

Funny. We probably run into each other all the time.

I do my groceries at the outpost too.

They expanded their meat section and also added a new sea food section. And they no longer carry the vegan donuts they had for a while.

From: Collected poems 1951-75 by Charles Causley (Macmillan London Ltd.)

I Saw A Jolly Hunter

I saw a jolly hunter

With a jolly gun

Walking in the country

In the jolly sun.

In the jolly meadow

Sat a jolly hare.

Saw the jolly hunter.

Took jolly care.

Hunter jolly eager

Sight of jolly prey.

Forgot gun pointing

Wrong jolly way.

Jolly hunter jolly head

Over heels gone.

Jolly old safety catch

Not jolly on.

Bang went the jolly gun.

Hunter jolly dead.

Jolly hare got clean away.

Jolly good, I said.

I went to Neal Barnard yesterday.

It was a really interesting lecture.

Did any of you go, without me being able to recognize you?

They are open to anyone!

Just bring a dish.

There's a new vegan store.

A nice lady (+ dog) opened a store selling all vegan cosmetics and cleaning products. Please go and support them!

Cari Amici

3811 North Oakland Avenue

Shorewood

(just a little bit south of Oakland/Capital)

Unrelated: my website now has recipes!


Please come and check them out.

I just received the Outpost Exchange. I am so disgusted.

On page 12 there is a huge Thanksgiving add talking about the wonderful real turkeys they are going to be offering.

You can also enter a contest and win either a turkey or the Tofurkey Feast.

Yes, I know they have a meat department (and a fish department).

I am just getting more and more upset with their big meat loving crap.

They didn't even allow Marv to do the annual meat-out thing in their store in March, which they did allow previous years.

"Pasture raised in the out-of-doors at all times."

Yes great.

And then killed so people can have a nice party.

I'm just sick to my stomach reading this stuff.

Okay. I'm done venting.

Vegan Essentials is moving closer to where I am!


They're moving in about 2 weeks to a new storefront/warehouse on 3707 N. 92nd.

I needed some good news!

I've been to Eastside Ovens before.

I can't wait until Veganessentials moves! They probably will be there at the thanksgiving dinner too. Is any of you going?

A few days ago I drove on Center st. And somewhere at 50th on the side of a building there was this huge poster with 'Go Vegan' on it. Further it had some pictures of abused farm animals I think. I only saw it for a split second while driving by. Not the kind of neighborhood I would have expected to see a poster like that. Really cool! It definitely made my day. Who is posting these?

Molly, I tried to send you a message but it didn't work.

"Flower has chosen not to receive private messages or may not be allowed to receive private messages. Therefore you may not send your message to him/her."

Is your inbox full?

I hope you can make it to one of the regular potlucks.

We had a really good time. I always love being in the presence of so many vegetarians.

The table with food was very impressive. So many choices, but way too small plates. Don't they understand that vegans eat a lot?

I brought carob chip blondies (recipe on my site!). I made 4 times the recipe... all gone. Luckily I was smart enough to keep 4 behind for us.

Do try to make it to one of the potlucks.
