A Peek @ Food We Eat & Things We Do!

Thursday, August 17, 2006


I'm rockin' an "old" photo of Kleo and I because she rocked my world today. Here's the text message she sent:

"hi Art n Vicki! On 3rd day of vaca in NoCal and Peter n i just got out of local screening of An I. Truth. Amazing. Hope U are healthy n happy..."

I'm speechless at how much this means to me -- even though she's the kind of person who would have seen the movie anyway -- she knows how much it means to me. There's nothing like blogging friends. A group of like-minded people pulled together across space and time because of same passions. I love ya, KleoPatra -- and the rest of you!

Appropriately, this is the BIZARRO cartoon today. Appropriate because Kleo is a HUGE fan of Dan Piraro, and also because it sheds light on the Inconvenient Truth. I'm not as good at posting cartoons as Kleo -- here's what it says:

Daddy Polar Bear: "Someday, Son, this will all be yours." (next bubble) "Of course, it will all be liquid and you'll be in a zoo somewhere, but still."

Enjoy your vacation, Kleo....& hurry back to blogland.

I'm throwing this photo in for Susana over at Mama's Village because she loves seeing beautiful art. This is a statue of Anne Frank at our Human Rights Memorial. In Anne's words:

"How lovely to think that no one need wait a moment, we can start now, start slowly changing the world!"

What a cool pic of you and Kleo on the beach.

You are such a doll Vicki! Thank you for taking the time to gift me with the picture & quote (blush, gush ). You are so fortunate to have such an inspiring statue of Anne Frank near your home.

Vicki, I haven't been to your blog in WAY too long! I love the photo of Abi helping organize the tupperware drawer . . . !!

How have you survived this long without a blender!?!?!??? I use mine for lots of things -- well, now that I have a stick blender, I use mine for lots more things than I ever used to. :) I also over-blenderize probably because I don't own a food processor. Still! So glad you are enjoying the smoothies.

Looks like you guys had a beautiful day at the beach. I love the t-shirt! "Vegetarians taste better" LOL. Cute.
I just love getting to conect with other veggie types through the internet like this. It's amazing how reassuring it is to be able to log on to my computer and "meet" other folks who get the whole veggie thing. I wish I could just have you all over for dinner. :)

This is great Vicki! I love that quote and statue of Anne Frank. So appropriate, you should put that on your world warming blog too.

I'm with you, I love the fact that we "blogging friends" can come together based on certain passions and interests and makes me feel good to know that there are so many other people like you and the other bloggers we chat with daily who can come together through this craziness of the internet and open up our lives so much. For me, one of my favorite parts about blogging (well food blogging too) is that I've learned so much and so many little details about different parts of the country and world and it is so much more personal via blogs. It makes me feel more connected in a bigger sense than just the local community (I actually like many of all of you better!).
