  • Happy Labor Day to all.

    Today is Labor Day in the US. The holiday began in 1882, originating from various unions desires to create a day off for the working man. Today, Labor Day marks the unofficial end of summer. Summer's other unofficial anchor is Memorial Day, which is the last Monday in May, and serves as the kick-off to summer here in the US.

    What do these two holidays have in common? BBQ! Americans love to BBQ, especially on these holidays. So what's a vegan to do when they attend BBQs? Participate!

    Vegans can BBQ too. Grilled vegetables are yummy! Jane and I were visiting relatives this weekend. There were lots of BBQs. We had grilled vegetables and grilled soy hot dogs, plenty of salads and guacamole. There's always veggie burgers too. Who needs a cheeseburger anyway?

    Sorry for the delay in getting this post out. It was so hot today that we had a power outage for a while....
