EmmyJane – I have been a vegetarian for a very long time, mainly because of the humane factor. I have to say that I feel you are off base here for a few reasons:
1. If you don’t want to support an industry that is cruel to animals, then DON’T PATRONIZE a business that profits from selling animal flesh!
2. When you are accidentally served meat at a restaurant, the animal was already dead. You are not responsible for that death.
3. Taco Time’s “insult to your beliefs??” Come on, do you seriously think they did this on purpose? It’s called human error. Everyone has received incorrect fast food orders.
You have completely contradicted yourself here – and with an attitude. If you are “so sick of this happening” then eat at vegetarian restaurants where there is no chance of being served meat and no chance of supporting the meat industry!
I work had to change the image of vegetarians and non-cruelty beliefs to omnivores. It is people like you with these ridiculous hypocritical attitudes and judgements that set us all back. My advise to you is to stop blaming other people for your choices.
The concept looks the same. I don’t think our board game says “absolute” though. It really is fun (maybe because I always win!) and is best with 7 – 10 people. The “definitions” are the acronyms.
I can tell you who not to go to – Heidi Horowicz. I made a huge mistake by going to her and now I’m stuck. Very unprofessional. I should have done more research first. It’s a bad situation.
Luigi – No, it is not. Bakery Nouveau is a high quality french bakery.
I picked up my weekly almond croissant today!
I went to Georgia Blu today and found the greatest gifts! Exactly what I was looking for – high quality and unique. I did not think they were expensive. “T” was an amazing help, she gave me great ideas and I am thrilled with my purchase. I was also able to support a local business instead of ordering something online. Thank you T and Georgia Blu! I’ll be back for future gifts.
I’ve seen Georgia Blue and thought I’d stop in there. I’m thinking of an organic cotton blanket that I could have embroidered with the baby’s initials. Seems like it will get good use and it could be a keepsake (I still have mine). It would be great if was locally made.March 6, 2009 at 6:06 pm in reply to: Rant: This SUV-driving woman tried to eliminate me this morning #659693

I viewed one of the units at Uhaul a few days a go and saw that trap thing – I wondered what that was! Good info – thanks everyone.
I woke (slightly) to my mirrored closet doors rattling lightly. They’ve never done that before. Furnace wasn’t on. I was sleepily wondering why they were rattling. Now I know!
I am a Humane Society supporter and received an email today from them. The dogs cannot be adopted or fostered right now due to the criminal investigation. They took in 57 dogs. See below:
PUPPY MILL UPDATE
Seattle Humane Society Shelters
57 Dogs from Puppy Mill Bust
When law enforcement officials raided the puppy mills in Skagit and Snohomish counties, the Seattle Humane Society was ready to help.
Our Shelter Manager and one assistant responded to the calls for help. Leaving with two vans filled with dog crates, they returned to the Seattle Humane Society with 57 neglected, hungry, flea-infested little dogs. The lucky dogs are now safe and comfortable. We’ve given them baths, flea treatments, vaccinations and basic medical care. Now they’re getting nutritious food and a warm place to sleep at the Seattle Humane Society.
We need your help. Please help us care for these dogs by making a generous donation today. These little Yorkies, Poodles and Chihuahuas are evidence in a criminal investigation so they must remain in our protective custody and can’t go to individual volunteer foster homes or be made available for adoption at this time. If there’s a trial, the dogs may be in our care for a long time.
As the criminal investigation continues, law enforcement officers have asked us to work with them. We’re ready to take in even more of these needy dogs who were bred in squalor to produce puppies for sale by pet stores and through the Internet.
With four million companion animals being put to death in U.S. shelters every year, keeping animals solely to produce puppies without the love and care of human companionship is unconscionable. These dogs have been kept in small cages without adequate food, exercise, medical care or companionship. Despite this, they still wag their tails and look at us with hope.
Please help us help them today.
Thank you so much for your calls and emails of concern and offers to help. If you can, please make a donation today toward the care of these special little dogs.

Tell me a few states your’re interested in and I may be able to tell you of a few cities.
Thank you all for such great suggestions! I will keep this info and do all of these in time (except for the rollerblading – not for the balanced challenged like me).
Here’s what we did:
1) Georgetown – Georgetown Brewery of course to get a growler of Manny’s (for $6!) and two very cool t-shirts for $8 each. Then to a glassblowing shop and very cool antique shop (forgot the name) that has very funky furniture and accessories. Had lunch at the Hanger Cafe. They specialize in sweet and savory crepes. Fantastic! I had the caprese crepe and it could not have been better! Highly recommended.
2) Columbia City – It was a sunny day so it was nice to walk around the main drag there. Went to the Bookworm Exchange used book store and got a few books. Then went to the Columbia City Alehouse to have a few local winter ales. Love the Elysian Bifrost Winter Ale.
Had a great day!
SC – Well, I was hoping for more of a response. I certainly thought there would be more social female vegetarians that read the WSB than this (and that thought this would be fun). Maybe I’ll post again in a few weeks. My idea was that I could get a nice group of women together to eat good home cooked food and socialize every few weeks. And drink some wine of course. Thank you for your interest and I’ll PM you if I get this together.
WSDood – I completely understand. I too have a less than desirable kitchen situation. Quite frustrating. I have some others ideas for this too so if I manage to make it work I will also let you know. Thanks for your response!
Here is a link for a free electronic copy of Suze Orman’s new 2009 Action Plan financial book. Offer expires Thursday.
I made the mistake of hiring Kim Francisco, owner of the Phoenix Studio mentioned above. She is highly over priced and greatly under delivers. She was a big waste of my time and money. I would never recommend her.
