It's been awhile...

I know. But there's a lot going on. Worked the longest day at the day job (18 hours) and that knocked me out for the following day. These events take a lot out of me. The home life becomes non-existent and there's no time for lava.

HOWEVER! we're back on track and the event is over, so it's back to normal hours.... i've added To-Go Ware CONSERVE Utensils to the catalog, and they are just the most awesome portable cutlery out there.

Oh and I became a member of vegan world ( and it's an awesome site so I hope you guys will become my vegan world friends.

Off to Guelph to find a good bike, anyone have any suggestions on what I should be looking for???

oprah's vegan cleanse

"Eating more consciously now feels like a way of being. I actually think about how my food got to my plate. That was the whole point, right?

Doesn't mean I'm committed to veganism…but I am thinking about what I eat and why. And from that I can never turn back."

— Oprah

Ok, was I the only one hoping that Oprah would be so satisfied with a vegan diet that she would never go back?? I mean, at least vegetarian then if not vegan! Ahh well, I'm still proud of Oprah. 3 weeks being a vegan is 3 weeks that some animals were spared... and I hope that she'll share her experience on the show a bit more so others can open their eyes to a life without animal consumption.

Leonard Cohen

Last night I was treated to an absolutely incredible experience. I was invited to Leonard Cohen's show at the Hummingbird Centre (yes, I'm still calling it that... must absolutely EVERYTHING be turned into an advertisement?!?)

The vibe was incredibly positive and energetic. It's been a long time since I've felt that much energy at a concert. Every person in the audience, was there to stand in awe of a great poet, singer, songwriter, human being... From the minute the man walked onto the stage until his final disappearance, the crowd went wild. Thunderous applause filled the room. It was a moving experience. It was a large room, and a large crowd, but nonetheless it felt like an intimate gig. Leonard humbly took off his hat to thank each and every person for not only attending that night, but for their years of loving and supporting his art.

Thank you thank you for allowing me to be a part of a wonderful evening.
