One Year Vegan!

Today an employee of company that rents to the company I work for emailed me to say that today was his one year anniversary as a vegan.

For years when I’ve seen him and his fellows I’ve quietly answered their questions of, “Why vegan?” Today he showed he had heard my answer!

Sticky Fingers wins Cupcake Wars…Again!

Coconut Granola Bars suggest vegan option on line 2

The New York Times offered a recipe for Coconut Granola Bars. Nothing special about that, but the first two lines of the recipe were, “These are crunchy and a little bit sticky. If you are vegan you can substitute agave syrup for the honey.”

Vegan is so there that the Times says how to veganize the recipe and does so right up front. Next step is for them to skip the honey in the first place.

SNL and peta.xxx

Saturday Night Live did a skit about Peta’s new xxx website peta.xxx that will show a mix of p0rn and animal exploitation videos.

The exciting parts (other than the p0rn) are that SNL talked about Peta supporting vegan issues, not animal rights issues and that the joke at the end of the skit was about that people would say “finally someone has the p0rn I want” and nothing about Peta, vegan, or animal rights itself.

Vegan is known now, and accepted thing, and it isn’t the but of the jokes anymore!
