Interview with Sea Shepherd Scott West at Bonneville Dam

Vegan Home Cooking

Life is good! I am currently residing in the beautiful mid-west, USA and I am no longer homeless. It’s wonderful that I can now cook my own meals again. After posting a photo of my vegan dumplings my good friend, Sandy, asked me for the recipe. I get many requests for recipes, so I am starting a new section whereby I may share my culinary delights.

Please keep in mind that I am vegan for the animals first, the planet second and…

How to Beat the #OccupyWallStreet Trending Blackout

It only goes to prove that ‘big brother’ is watching and that he is afraid of the truth: We outnumber him 99 to 1!

My Birthday Wish | The Cove

I’ve come a long way in the last year after first viewing The Cove movie. It has launched me on a mission wherein I shall not back down or relent. I don’t get paid a single cent to do what I do. I do it simply because it is the right thing to do. I do it because I want my children to forever know that I did all that I could. The atrocities in…
