Vegan Thanksgiving Part 1: Cookies

Thanksgiving Rocks. Period. Best Holiday Ever. No "gimme - gimme" commercialism pressure, no stress about finding the right gift to show how much people really mean to you. (When the love is real, you do show it EVERYDAY, yet this holiday makes us all feel insecure, stressed, and crappy, YUCK.)

So anyway, Thanksgiving will always be tops for me. Even though this is my second Thanksgiving as a vegan, I don't miss anything really. My plate might be missing some of the old traditional, but I still walk away full, satiated, and slightly tipsy, with a burgeoning sugar induced food coma waiting in the lurks!

Free Printable Mailing Labels

Wow. I amaze myself sometimes. 

Official Free Wedding Template - Really

In my quest to figure out how to create printable PDFs, I have aged, cursed, and may have teared up a bit in frustration.  For me, nothing - nothing - is every as easy as they say it will be in a tutorial when computers are in the mix. Never. Ever.

V V Monday

A quick summary of some things going on in the world of the animals...

The Western Black Rhino is officially extinct!  Whoo hoo, yes, idiotic hunters of the world unite! (This wasn't how I'd intended to start this entry, but the stupidity of these people that hunt an animal to extinction blows my mind.)
While I wasn't exactly on a Western Black Rhino watch, at the end of the day, it is sad that these poachers have done what they did. I wonder, as that hunter had the last rhino in his (or her) crosshairs -- or whatever they use to kill, did the thought of "I am eradicating something permanently from the face of the earth for its measly horn," ever cross his/her mind? Of course not.
Everyone has to make a living, (even those who poach illegally,) but they just hunted themselves out of a job. (I guess there is a slight silver lining to the story.) 
I thought the purpose of hunting was to maintain population control. Mind you, Mother Nature has never called on us to help her with her job in that respect, but we take the task on anyway. I guess that is the lame excuse used to justify the carnage.
How long before out only connection to the wild and these amazing animals will be through pictures and documentaries on cable tv?
