Carl from Carle Place Looks Back at Himself

It was a time when the most read bible was "The Whole Earth catalog"; J.I.Rodale's "Organic Gardening & Farming" promoted chemical-free farming and an awareness that everthing's connected to everything else; communes began to florish and soy became "tofu"; "Mother Earth News" raised our consciousness about ecological processes and the consequences of napalm and Agent Orange; Rachel Carson's "Silent Spring", "Diet for a Small Planet", and "Small is Beautiful" were becoming best-sellers; vegetarians became aware of "vegans" and they both embraced "Ahimsa". The year was 1975.

I Just Found Out About These 2 Books

Gonna See Tonight if the Local B&N Has Them on the Shelf

(2/22/08 update-Got 'em both that night!)

A "skinny bitch" is someone who cares about what they put in their body and

enjoys the hell out of food. It has nothing to do with how much you weigh.

The press went nuts when they saw Victoria Beckham with a copy of Skinny Bitch, the diet book by Rory Freedman and Kim Barnouin. With so much publicity surrounding the book, it's not surprising that the girls have come up with another offering, Skinny Bitch in the Kitchen. 'We decided on a cookbook to help make the transition to a Skinny Bitch lifestyle easier' says Rory. 'People can look forward to some kick-ass recipes and some really good grub.

To All Family Members and Friends-In Case You Haven't Started Yet!...34 days to go!!!

I just love this!

The Vegan Bus is a project based in Northampton, MA. We have a 1992 International School Bus which is converted to run on waste vegetable oil. We use it for education and outreach, bringing people to animal sanctuaries, and other noble vegan causes...

Some of the members of the Vegan Bus are also hula hoopers, and we are participating in activism to keep the Hilton Hotel out of our beloved Pulaski Park. This video highlights hooping in the park and features several vegan hoopers!
Who I'd like to meet:
We are looking for artists, dreamers, people with mad skills that can anyhow enhance our mission, humane educators, burners, diesel mechanics, welders, seamstresses and seamsters, fire dancers, grant writers, non-profit organizers, people who don't think they have anything special to contribute but want to contibute anyway, media experts, financial backers, and you!

I Feel Like I Should Say-"I Rest My Case" or (What Else Would You Expect?)

Slaughterhouse inhumane practises revealed in underground video footage
Something to note: What is left out of almost all of the media coverage is that the animals we saw being tortured were dairy cows. This is why many animal advocates are vegan, rather than vegetarian.
