Go vegan, folks, and get your protein firsthand. When you eat meat you are getting your protein secondhand. Go vegan until your heart is pure, until your will is one with the Universe to do and to endure. Carl Lewis, 9 time Olympic gold medalist, says, “My best year of track competition was the first year I ate a vegan diet.” Glendora is 91 years old – no doctors, no medicine, no insurance!
We can send you a free “Vegetarian Starter Guide: the Whys and Hows of Vegetarian Eating.” It contains nutrition information and recipes as well as articles about the inhumane treatment of animals in factory farms. You can also learn how following a vegan diet helps to save the earth “one bite at a time.”

2. Another couple tried something new this summer: sending the dog to summer camp and sending the kids to obedience school.
3. A dad said he paid $1000 to send his kid to summer camp so she could bring home a fifty cent potholder.
4. Another dad picked up his son and asked if any of the kids got homesick. His son said Yes, the ones who have dogs.
