My name is Derek, and I am hoping to open an all vegetarian/vegan cafe and bakery in Ohio. I feel like there isn't enough places that vegetarians and vegans (especially super picky eaters like myself) can go to that offers a menu that I can choose a meal from that isn't a salad or a soup. So my partner and I have created a plan to create and provide a place that is 100% vegetarian and vegan friendly that offers meals ranging from breakfast to dinner and a small bakery that not only is all vegetarian and vegan but does not push anyone away from trying our products because let's face it, we can go into any applebees or olive garden and get a soup or a salad, but after that, that's it, ANYONE can come into my cafe and get a veggie burger or a vegan chocolate cupcake and leave satisfied! I am reaching out to my fellow "Veg Heads" for support and action to make this happen. We also plan to have specialty cupcakes that when purchased a portion of that sale goes to a charity that the cupcake is representing. We plan to give back in as many ways as possible.

Who has the lightest carbon footprint - a Vegan driving a Hummer or a meat eater driving a Prius? You guessed it, a Vegan driving a Hummer. Journalist Mr. Michael Pollan traced the origins of meat all the way back to the oil fields, used to make fertilizer that is critical to the corn grown for cows in massive feed lots.
“Our meat eating is one of the most important contributors we make to climate change,” said Pollan, who is best known for his book “The Omnivore’s Dilemma.” “A vegan in a Hummer has a lighter carbon footprint than a beef eater in a Prius.”

I am not usually in front of the TV during the BBC One's light entertainment offerings but I was at home on Friday with the rather lowbrow One Show's hour long special in the background (Sep 18th 2009)...
You can see it for yourself here (for a few more days) - the 'Analog Cheese' article is at 36:00:
I heard the announcement that there was to be a feature on 'Analog Cheese' which we were told was 'every bit as ghastly as it sounds!'

Yep it really is 5 years since the Vegan Diamond Jubilee at The Tower of London.
A slightly more mundane party is planned for the 65th Vegan Birthday on Sunday 1st November at Fairfield Halls in Croydon.
Happy Birthday to all of us!
