Glendora Vegeterian Club

In 2003 my helper Phil was working with Right to Life during his break from college. While touring the country doing outreach at music festivals, he met 2 vegan advocates from the organization PETA. 

Through constructive and respectful dialogue with them, he realized that his food choices did not match up with his espoused worldview, and he has been vegan ever since.

Glendora will be having a vegan Thanksgiving a week early. The menu will include a plant based roast, vegan gravy, mashed potatoes, dressing, squash, peas, whole berry cranberry sauce and vegan pumpkin pie. We will eat slowly and genteelly at Happy House 3.

Glendora will give you lessons on how to live to 94 without doctors, medicine, heart attacks, strokes, accidents, pain or bills. Join the movement ahead: kindness to animals, veganism.


1.Adam was talking to God and said he needed a helper, someone to help him fold up the tent, get his meals and help him at the he laundromat. God said, “That will cost you an arm and a leg.” Adam said, “Well, how about a rib?”

2. Why did the prince ask his daddy to go to kindergarten with him? The teacher said to bring a ruler to school.

3. What did Delaware? Her New Jersey.

If you are traveling, you do not want to go to Chicago IL. You will need a Maryland MD.

What did Tennessee? The same thing as Arkansas.

4. A little boy was late for school. He was running as fast as he could. He took a shortcut under a barbed wire fence and tore a hole in his pants. When he came running into the classroom, his teacher said, “I see you are a little behind this morning.”
