A Better Vegan Riding Boot
I read about these babies on the vegan shoe blog veganshoaddict and I agree with her. These are the perfect classic riding boots. Best looking I’ve seen. You can buy them at Mooshoes.com for a steep fee of approx $200.
A blog about vegan heroes, animal rights, and cool vegan shoes.
Check out Potato Strong's transformation on a low fat vegan diet doing The Starch Solution by Dr. McDougall. He has a ton of delicious recipes on his site that are really easy to make and you never get tired of. My friend has a friend who is getting a weight loss surgery--NO! Try a low fat high carb vegan diet first. I was one of those people who thought I would never lose weight, but now I'm still losing weight...even when I mess up. I used to be a size 12 and now I'm a size 6. Even better I prefer this way of eating so much more--I love being able to eat so much. I never felt full before and was always wracked with guilt about what I was eating. Not to mention I love being vegan and being an advocate for animals and inspiring people to learn about veganism. Anyway if you want to lose weight, check out potatostrong's page. It helped me.
Sam Simon saves a "gay" bull destined for slaughter. The vet said his sexual orientation was the reason he refused to breed with the females and they were going to kill him. Simon paid $7,800 for him and sent him to a sanctuary saying: "'To kill this bull because he's gay would've been a double tragedy".
Benjy, a bull in County Mayo, Ireland, was facing slaughter after a veterinarian declared his sexual orientation the reason he wouldn't breed.

Someone needs to make a movie like Schindler's List based on the things Sam Simon is doing for animals. He literally stopped the truck of these 8 girls being driven to slaughter after being used in an agricultural breeding program, after one of the kids in the program fell in love with them and called PETA to see if they could help save them. Sam Simon probably paid off the truck driver and In the middle of the night they unloaded them by flashlight and delivered them to this sanctuary where they are now free. Wouldn't that be an incredible movie? Ingrid Newkirk head of PETA is working with Simon to tell him about animals he can free and then Sam Simon finances it with his fortune he is giving away before he dies. Ingrid E. Newkirk deserves a movie about her too. Have you guys read her amazing book "Free the Animals" about the early days of PETA and working with an animal rights freedom fighter? Wow it is one of the most amazing books I've ever read.

After reading the wonderful book about turkeys "Illumination in the Flatwoods" on which the amazing PBS documentary My Life as a Turkey was based on, I have an even greater love of turkeys! Check out this awesome short vid of them being at one with nature--- wild, wise in the ways of the forest, and free.
There is a singer everyone has heard, Loud, a mid-summer and a mid-wood bird, Who makes the solid tree trunks sound again. He says that leaves are old and that for flowers Mid-summer is to spring as one to ten. He says the early petal-fall is past When pear and cherry bloom went down in showers On sunny days a moment overcast; And comes that other fall we name the fall. He says the highway dust is over all. The bird would cease and be as other birds But that he knows in singing not to sing. The question that he frames in all but words Is what to make of a diminished thing. -Robert Frost, "The Oven Bird" Many years ago when I first read this poem, I thought that Frost was writing about turkeys. I thought that "oven bird" was a kind of colloquialism derived from turkeys' ubiquitous interment in ovens on Thanksgiving Day. And I thought the sorrowful sense of alienation suffusing the poem aptly captured the lonely, abstracted status of turkeys in a culture that has so throughly devalued and diminished them. So even now that I know there is an actual bird called the Oven Bird, and that it is not a turkey, I cannot help but think of this poem at Thanksgiving, and of the hundreds of millions of turkeys languishing inside industrial sheds, whose broken down bodies can never comply with their ancient instincts to frolic and fly, whose skeletons cannot even support the weight of their outsized chests, the result of decades of selective breeding for unnaturally rapid growth of the breast muscle; who can barely walk or stand, much less run, much less fly into winter branches as their wild cousins do. In industrial design, "planned obsolescence" is a policy of planning or designing a product with an artificially limited useful life so that it will become obsolete, that is, no longer functional after a certain period of time. It's a useful way to think about our forced disablement of domestic turkeys, who have been bred to grow "meat" or muscle tissue so large and so fast that their organs and bones cannot keep pace with their massive chests. They are so grossly overweight and disproportioned that most suffer from lameness, respiratory disorders, heart disease, and other ailments related to our relentless manipulation of their genes. But in their minds, domestic turkeys still carry an immense ancestral map, and the inherited instincts of centuries of wildness. Their bodies' built-in malfunctioning is a source of constant bewilderment and anguish to these birds. In her book, More Than A Meal, Karen Davis, who has rescued and lived with turkeys for decades, writes: "Over the years, I have frequently watched adult white "meat-type" turkeys calculate a leap onto a perch, be it a roosting board, a fence top, a bale of straw, or a sawhorse. They will test the spring from the ground before actually making it, as if reliving an experience built into their bones and brain cells. They will revise their position, test it again, and quit if they perceive it's a no go, with a show of disappointment and frustration, often circling the area with their necks craned before giving up entirely...the only thing that stops them from perching is their weight and accompanying disabilities."

Is anyone planning to go to the The Woodstock Fruit Festival in hawaii this year? It's in April, but I just reserved a spot. Mike Arnstein The Fruitarian who organizes it all says that he wanted people to be able to experience what it is like to live a fruitarian lifestyle in a tropical paradise like Hawaii with tropical fruit and sunlight and oceans and all that. He recently moved from New York to Hawaii himself. It is not that expensive either considering they are serving you unlimited fruit for a week and lodging and all the lectures from cool people. http://hawaii.thewoodstockfruitfestival.com
The Woodstock Fruit Festival Hawaii is a social network
Haha, hilarious! Have you been following the amazing story of Esther the Wonder Pig. Her dads bought a farm which they are turning into a bed and breakfast and animal sanctuary called Happily Ever Esther Farm Sanctuary. They moved in over the weekend and posted many adorable pics of Esther exploring the farm. But she still prefers to sleep indoors as evidenced by this pic. As they said: "You can take a pig out of the city, but you can't take the city out of the pig." How cute!
Awwwww. Snails...so magical.
