Whoo-Hoo for me, and Happy Earth Day to all! I’m celebrating 10 years this month of having become a vegan! While I’ve alternated precisely what I’ve been regularly eating over these 10 years, there are some undeniable truths about why I have stayed vegan and why I will always be a vegan: I’m hardly ever […]

Feed Your Kids Right

I’ve read a variety of Mother’s Day supper stories about families who celebrated by making steaks for the parents and hot dogs for the kids.  While some kids might have a preference for the lower quality foods, all the kids I knew when I was a child were jealous that I ate the same meals […]

What do you want to be known for?

One hundred years from now when people are sitting around talking about you, what do you want them to be saying?  Do you want them to say, “He was a bit of a jerk from what I’ve been told and he knew how to drink a six pack of beer every day.” Or possibly, “He […]

Stop Doing Things that Suck the Life Out of You!

An old friend of mine recently read my blog and was pleased to see that we agreed that iceberg lettuce and schools both suck the life out of people.  I loved his observation, and I especially love that we’d both come to these conclusions separately.  🙂 I’ve been thinking about my friend’s comment and I […]

REVIEW: Wildlife World Zoo and Aquarium, Arizona

Vegans Eat More than Lettuce

Whenever I go to a conference, business luncheon, or the like, I inevitably have to explain what a vegan diet is (since I’m a vegan).  What’s particularly shocking is that my special ordered food usually has to be sent back to the kitchen a few times before it actually is vegan.  The people in charge […]

Being a Macho Man

There are several U.S. commercials on television right now that are quite insulting to males.  They imply that men aren’t truly men unless they are meat eaters — and they imply that a man is more of  a man if he eats meat in extremely large quantities — daily, at each meal. Think this is […]

Happy Groundhog Day!

This is such an exciting year for my family; Super Star Trek Sunday and Groundhog Day are back-to-back!  We spent yesterday watching Star Trek, playing Star Trek games, doing a Starfleet Academy Training Course, doing Star Trek trivia questions, eating Star Trek inspired foods, and most of all: enjoying the company of our friends who […]
