    Been reading it today, I enjoyed reading about the 94 year old Patron of the Vegan Society who has been Vegan for 60 years.

    I am saving the article about growing Vegan/Organically til later, it will be my bedtime reading tonight. I want to concentrate on the article as it is of particular interest to me and my proposed new lifestyle (should be moving at the end of next month, then once I have bought a property I can get growing!! ).

    Ey up, i like the front cover. EFB some wholefoodshops like Beanos in Leeds sell the mag.

    I liked reading the article on vegan societies around the world, and how the vegan society here is supporting them in setting up.

    The 'Vegan in Iraq' article leapt out at me. Helen Williams and her partner Kevin decided to go to Iraq as human shields and ended up staying to help the street children of Iraq. They managed to eat a very good vegan diet whilst in the country, and provided vegan food for the kids.

    You can read about Helen's fantastic and inspirational work Here

    I also enjoyed the Laurence Main jubilee walk article and what about that full page advert for Humdinger dairy free chocolate! Yum!

    It was sad to read about Serena Coles, Honorary Patron of the Vegan Society, and that the society had lost contact with her, until now that is. She looks so sweet. Top hat there Serena.

    Talking of hats, if I had a hat like Serena's on, I'd take it off to Helen Williams for her experience of living in Iraq.

    And I have to mention Bronwyn (12) and Aisha (8) and the Vegilantics page, always Briiiiilllllllliiiiiiaaaaaaaaaaannnnnnnnntttttt!

    It can be ordered online without being a member as far as I'm aware, costing 2.50 per quarterly mag. You may be able to buy it from some other outlets such as health food shops.

    For 21 you could become a member of the society.

    I'm not from the UK. How do I order this magazine? o.o; I've been getting Vegetarian Times as long as I can remember, I'd love a Vegan only magazine subscription if it doesn't cost too much. ^^

    Aye pretty good, liked the gentle dig in the ribs over Morgan Spurlocks re-tox diet, after eating vegan food for a while...

    I read it all the way through, hi-lights also included the Mclibel story, vegan group activity and focus on festivals.

    Default Current issue of Vegan - can someone check the classifieds for me

    This is the issue with the Typical Vegan cover.

    Apparently there is mention of a vegan group in Rochester, Kent. Can someone with a copy have a look for me and post what they find?

    I'm unable to find any info from the internet about this group, and won't have chance to get my hands on a copy of Vegan until the weekend.

    Yeah, that sounds like it. Thanks for checking for me.

    As I thought, though, she's the local vegan society contact. I contacted her before, and there wasn't much going on at all.

    I might give her another try - maybe things are picking up.

    A Touch Of The Exotic...
    How about giving your partner a present with the personal touch this Valentines Day? Beautifully packaged and handmade to order, Miss Bellaisis's collection of nipple tassels and pasties could liven up any evening. Using luxurious materials such as French double satin ribbons, crepe-backed satins, German glass beads and beautiful vintage trims, these striking accessories come in an extensive range of designs. Worn inside or out, they make elegant accessories for an evening out or a playful evening in.

    Panties surely

    Yes, saw that - makes a change from their usual style of adverts doesn't it?

    Pasties, I'm told, are those sparkly things strippers paste strategically on to themselves to cover the naughty bits, but to this British person Cornish pasties* are the first thing that springs to mind

    * vegan ones naturally!

    Interesting to read about Neil Robinson, who played football for Everton, and being veggie for first seven years of his career, and vegan for the last ten.

    Maybe he and his vegan brother will be at the Bristol Vegan Fayre.

    The articles on the pros and cons of soya are very informative, there's a good piece on the campaign against greyhound racing and a lovely tribute to vegan pioneer Serena Coles.

    Greyhound action have a couple of stalls at the Bristol Vegan Fayre, and no doubt Serena Coles will get a mention on the day as well.

    Oooh I'd love to, but hoping to be moving to Australia by the end of the year. I will sign up over there though - it doesn't seem very dear to do that, I guess they only charge you what they pay extra in postage, not add on loads like some magazines do.
