Glendora Vegan Club

Why should you go vegan? So you can live to 95 years old without hospitals, without doctors and without medicine.

Google Glendora Folsom, then go to IMDB and enter Glendora Folsom Buell.

We are going to do a program on the Middletown, NY Humane Society.

They have 100 kitties that need homes and people. We will show you their pictures and tell how you can fill your life with endearing companionship.


1. The teacher said, “Johnny, I think you cheated on the test. I think you copied your answer from the girl across the aisle. The first question was, Who was the first president of the United States? She wrote George Washington, and you wrote George Washington.

The second question was, Who was president during the Civil War? She wrote Abraham Lincoln, and you wrote Abraham Lincoln. The third question was, Who was President during the Louisiana Purchase? She wrote I don’t know, and you wrote Me neither.”

2. The doctor said, I have bad news and very bad news.” Shivering and shaking, the patient asked, “What’s the bad news?” The doctor answered, “You have 2 days to live.” Shivering and shaking even more, the patient asked, “What is the very bad news?” The doctor said, “I forgot to tell you yesterday.”

3. The little girl was noisy in church. Her mother whispered something in her ear, and the little girl calmed down till the end of the service. A woman asked, “What did you whisper in your daughter’s ear?” The mother replied, “I told her that if she made a commotion in church the priest would lose his place and have to start the sermon all over again.”

4. At one end of a line in the cafeteria, there was a big bowl of apples with a sign that said, “Take only one. God is watching.” At the other end of the line there was a platter of delicious cookies with a sign that said, “Help yourself. God is watching the apples.”

5. A man did not have long to live, and everyone realized this. But he was at home.

His wife had baked a batch of cookies. He leaned over and took a couple. The wife said, “Don’t eat those. I need them for the funeral.”
