Even Bavarian’s agree “fresh beer is the best beer.”

Glendora Vegetarian Club

Here are some of the points we are going to make in our vegan commercials to help the animals in November on CBS Channel 6:

1. When all is said and done, the only thing that matters is how you treated others, including animals.

2. Go vegan and get your protein firsthand, not secondhand.

3. Go vegan and eat food that is clean, pure and healthful.

4. Go vegan. Enjoy the peace that passeth all understanding.

Consult Mary Lawrence’s book Eat Vegan with Me for scrumptious recipes and suggested menus. She provides lists of entrees for all daily meals. The internet also has a copious inventory of delectable vegan recipes.

The Capital District Vegan Network held its Veggie Fest on September 8th at 35 Eagle St. in Albany. It featured exciting food and illuminating lectures. Check out CapitalRegionVegans.org to learn the date for next year’s event.

Other websites that promote animal rights and veganism are Mercy for Animals, Friends of Animals, PETA, The American Vegan Society, Vegan Outreach, Humane Farming Association, Farm Animals’ Rights Movement, Physicians’ Committee for Responsible Medicine, inter alia.

The Glendora Vegetarian Club rejoiced over the vegan cheese pizza we had at Goomba’s located on Columbia Turnpike in East Greenbush. We brought our own cheese that we purchased at Honest Weight Food Co-op. Thank you A.J. and sister.

Glendora’s Jokes:

1. Uncle Giuseppe was given the honor of naming the twins. What did he name the girl? Denise. Very nice! What did he name the boy? Denephew.

2. Have you heard of the gardener’s exercise? You start out fresh as a daisy and end up bushed.
