VivaVegie is still lacking people to wear the Penelo Pea Pod
costume at our Candle Cafe fundraiser (see above). Here's
your chance to strut your big veggie-lovin' stuff and for a
good cause too. If you're not familiar with our lean green
veg-evangelistic pea machine, go to our home page:
http://www.vivavegie.org . Scroll down about half-way to
view. Best if you're thin and over 6 feet tall.
The Dayton (Ohio) Daily News is in the middle of a 6-part
series on factory farming. It's a must-read for any
veg-evangelist worth his/her salt.
Read it, make a bookmark to read postings over the next 3
days, and pass the word to anyone you can think of. Do not
hesitate another moment. Go right now to:

City metropolitan area
