In the news: The Good Stuff

How often do you get excited by the news?  Usually I end up pissed off or depressed.  Today that is not the case :)  I actually have some happy things to share.

Adventures in Veganism features a very positive outlook on veganism.  Published in our local 417 magazine, editor Katie Polluck goes vegan for a week and writes about her experience.

Have you heard of Loreen Dinwiddie?  This awesome lady just turned 108 and has been vegan since 1922.  That's 89 freakin' years!!!  Check her out on Vegansaurus!

That's so amazing about Loreen! Wow!!

Did you see that Dr. Oz is featuring Knives Over Forks on tomorrow's show? I don't watch his show, but have that episode set to record. Exciting!

I get angry and depressed about the news usually too! Thanks for these links! I think veganism is slowly getting more "air' time in the media and it's a wonderful thing!

Molly - I did hear about that. We don't get any TV stations due to no converter box, but I may see if it's available online. Did you watch it?

Rose - I agree :)

I did watch it! It was a shorter segment, but pretty good. Now I'm excited to see Forks Over Knives when it comes out. :)
