Thank You very much Weekly Vegan Menu! Please check out this stupendous blog! The food porn  will make you salivate.

Versatile Awards and Blogs I dig-

Where's Mr Peabody?
The best blog for animal lovers like you and me. Blogger Mark Samu, an ace photographer features videos, gorgeous photos and stories about his menagerie Mr. Peabody, Jerry the goat, and Leroy.

7 things about Memememememe ( I need more coffee)

1. It started in the seventies. Yep I’m kind of old, but I don’t really look it because I use good moisturizer and I don’t wear old lady clothes. Nooo, silly. I’m a vegan, that’s why. Anyway, the parental unit was eating chicken, and Dad said, “Hey Gi pass the leg”. For some reason I never gave much thought to a chicken having a leg, but that was it and my vegetarian/vegan journey began.
The years brought greater commitment and love for the world’s creatures. Giving up dairy was simple. I was a performer/vocalist and I didn’t like the phlegm. The thought of what little yolks could be made my tummy hurt so the transition to being a vegan was easy.
2. As an actress I was the queen of pratfalls.
3. I've made a living as (see  above) a tennis pro, comedy writer, emcee, hash slinger vegan baker, nutritional counselor and Elf.
4. I once helped a doctor surgically remove a mole. I also assisted the same doctor in stitching up a ripped tongue.
5. I've written, produced, and performed a one-woman show. My husband directed. One time there were more people in the audience than on stage.
6. I'm half Latvian, 1/2 Scottish and was born in Brooklyn.
7. I read all things including cookbooks. I'm still looking for the perfect vegan chopped liver recipe.

Thank You Again!!! And Congrats to the wonderful bloggers! Give them a read when you get a chance!
