NONHUMAN ANIMAL PRODUCTS IN OUR FOOD SUPPLY

 

Last week we took our little grandchildren on a day trip to Wishing Well Sanctuary in Bradford, Ontario. Our plan was to locate the Sanctuary and then take a little detour for lunch before going back for the tour. I could have, should have taken a picnic lunch , but I wanted to save my energy for the main event.

SMALL VICTORIES IN THIS VEGAN’S WORLD

We have had three days of glorious sun and warmish weather. No, not over 10 degrees Celsius, but a respectable 7 or 8. The huge snow bank on the front of our property has diminished somewhat. We heard the geese flying overhead one morning.
