    Bullying is never OK. When I saw the words “vegan bullying,” I just assumed it was about meat-eaters giving non-meat eaters a hard time. But it wasn’t about that. In fact, it’s the opposite. vegans being bullies?!  Apparently, at a high school in Northern California, vegans are “bullying” other students; calling them names like carcass […]

  • gyoza eating contest

    Yesterday, Jane and I were in the Little Tokyo section of Los Angeles at the Gyoza Eating Competition.  Gyoza, if you don’t already know, are Japanese dumplings.  They are usually vegetable or pork based, but I think I heard the commentator mention something about vegetables. So here’s a little known tidbit about me.  I cannot […]

    For Christmas this year, Jane received a subscription to bon appetit magazine.  She received the gift because the giver knew that she was always cooking and looking at recipes.  Unfortunately, the giver did not pay particular attention to the kind of recipes that Jane was looking at, but it’s the thought that counts, eh? So […]

  • A Little Reminder of Where Your Meat Comes From

    While Jane’s mom was here we did a few “touristy” things. One of the things we hadn’t done with her yet was to visit Farmer’s Market. It’s a tourist attraction that pulls them in by the busload, and where there are people, there is food. This is someplace to grab a bite to eat and […]

    So I’m watching CNN as I’m getting ready for work, and across the bottom of the screen, the scrolling news goes by…. PETA urges Ben & Jerry’s to replace cow’s milk with… (at this point, I’m expecting to see soy millk. aren’t you?) human breast milk. Jane loudly exclaimed “ew,” and we looked at each […]

  • We wish all of our US readers a Happy 4th. Today’s post might be a little late for this weekend’s festivities, but it’ll certainly be of value throughout the summer. It turns out that watermelon isn’t just a fun summer fruit — it contains certain chemicals that might help ensure some fireworks in the bedroom. […]

  • No, that’s not a typo in the title. Here’s the rap… , the hummus recipe is below. I found this video on YouTube the other day. It’s stuck in my head, and I’ve been tormenting Jane with it. Now I’m sharing it with you. Enjoy! (It’s not terribly P.C., but I don’t think anything is […]

  • So I’m standing at the stove, fluffing the rice and putting the finishing touches on our dinner, when Lane calls me. He’s a few blocks from home and he tells me to come out and meet him…. There are two peahens walking up our hill. Now for some of you, this might not be a […]

    New Vegan Strips… No Bacon, but Plenty of Silicone

  • It might be time for a road trip to Portland, Oregon. Clearly there’s a lot more going on there than I’ve ever imagined. Oregon seems to have more vegans per square foot than any other state in the United States. Portland has the most strip clubs per capita in the United States. So I guess […]

  • Two weeks ago, I posted an article about a new 30 story vertical farm coming to Las Vegas in 2010. It was reported here, on other blogs, and on various news services. But is is true? James Murray, at Business Green Blog, is now reporting that the story may have been fabricated. In his article, […]
