1. Comment about Blog

One reader commented that the blog mentioned last week, http://bettervegetarianinfo.blogspot.com/ strongly encourages and advertises supplements, which should not be necessary for a well-balanced vegan or vegetarian diet (except some B12). I recommend JackNorrisRD.com, for useful, well-researched, unbiased veg. nutritional information.


2. The March Peaceable Table is now online and contents include:

* The editorial "All Blessings Flow" explores further the concept of kin mentioned in the February issue, and compares it to the Biblical ideas of blessing and cursing.

* In one of the Gems, Charles Darwin compares the enslavement of animals with that of humans.

* Letter-writer Bob Collins tells that he has long been using the "see it my way" approach of aikido in his family counseling work.

* In one of the Recipes, fresh parsley is the key to a delectable scrambled tofu dish.

* Ben De Vries, this month's Pilgrim, tells how in adulthood his mind and heart have re-awakened to the "aminals" he so loved as a child.

* The March Pioneer is Neville Fowler, a Welsh agronomist who rejected the killing and eating of animals in 1958, when he was 19, with no guidance but that of his own heart. In retirement he has founded the organization HIPPO to promote plant-based agriculture in developing countries, especially in Africa.

Hi,
Just letting you know that I was able to show the CVA’s DVD "Honoring God's Creation" to a group of 25 youth at Hope Lutheran in Bozeman, MT this past Saturday afternoon.

The youth leader there puts on the 30 Hour Famine sponsored by World Vision every year and this year we teamed up to discuss fasting and also food choices -- knowing where our food comes from. I was able to work with all the parents and for the break the fast meal that evening, they had mostly vegetarian and organic food offers.

This CVA video went well with the 30 Hour Famine, because what we eat affects the hungry people in the world. This made the kids think even more. It was great that the youth leader allowed me to have a few words too. So will keep on doing what I can.

Thanks.
Lila

The Denver Revolve Tour leafleting went very well, except that on Friday evening the temp dropped from 44 to 24 in 20 minutes, then the wind blew like mad the whole time. The wind chill was almost unbearable.

Despite the quick freeze, the three of us still managed to hand out five boxes on Friday night. Saturday morning was chilly but bright and sunny. Three of us handed out 2 2/3 boxes. It was very exiting to have a mostly receptive crowd.
