ARRNT T Shirt and Mint Chocolate Mud Cake :-) PHOTOS

The lovely Barbara DeGrande of Veganacious, ARZone and Animal Rights and Rescue North Texas sent me a ARRNT shirt :-)

I also decided to bake a "Mint Chocolate Mud Cake", using this recipe, "my Grandmothers" ;-)

(great lighting at 10:40 PM at night, under a couple dim bulbs!)

What a great day :-)

Thank you very much Barbara :-)

Friday Night: my Vegan friend Dan stopped by, we talked about my trip to Auckland, her travels around the world.

I see a "Friend I Havnt Met Yet" (stranger) has "liked" my never updated Facebook page for the INVERCARGILL VEGAN SOCIETY (but please, by all means "like" it!), after contacting her, I find she - and her sister - have decided to be Vegan, and live in Invercargill too, we plan to meet one day soon.

Saturday Morning: I'm at work when a guy in a black hoody - complete with swear word - leans over my Workshops barrier, he asks "you Jordan?", I immediately assume my time is up and I'm about to be defenstrated (despite lack of nearby windows), I say why yes I am....turns out to be Russell, another Invercargill Vegan I hadnt yet met in person, along with his Vegan partner.

I spent the afternoon with my Chicken Friends, and took some nice photos while they ate bread from my hand:

She is someONE
Sunday Morning: "Vegetarian" [ :-( ] /Vegan cooking class, where I'll hopefully see Dan, Natalie AND Russell with his partner, plus my many Non Vegan friends who attend the GREAT monthly event.

I....WE all live in Invercargill, New Zealand, the bottom of the world, a rural city of 50,000 in a region known for taking mothers milk away from other mammals, killing their "byproduct" children, in a country whose economy is based upon exporting dead, frozen corpses and dried breast milk.  

Invercargill, famously described as "...the arsehole of the world" by some old guy nobodies ever heard of.

Invercargill, home of the worlds southernmost (possibly) Vegan organisation, the INVERCARGILL VEGAN SOCIETY.

Dont EVER let another Vegan convince you "...they're not ready for Veganism yet...", dont worry about "they", the only "THEY" you have to worry about is the secret American Government Agency secretly sabotaging all your hopes and dreams, dont let [THEM] get to you!!!!!1111!!!!

Its as easy to be Vegan as not, and its the least other animals deserve, not to be seen as a "thing", called an "it", but respected as our friends.

Hello and welcome to a fairly average episode of Coexisting With Nonhuman Animals, "Watch the "IT" "

I'd like to thank Thomas Janek for mentioning me in a recent interview held with activist John Sakars, Thomas interviewed me about a year ago for his radio show Wild Time, all this time later, Thomas remembered my little whine about being the only Vegan I knew (at the time)

I'm glad to say I've met at least five Vegans who live here in person, and that I'll meet more in the future.  I have nothing to complain about, although I do wish Invercargill had a Vegan restaurant like the ones in Auckland! :-)  To anyone listening who hasn't met another Vegan in person, hang in there, start your own one member Vegan Society, if for no other reason than to have fun, and to give yourself "extra respect" by sending in cranky letters to newspapers, using your newly made up title.  I wouldn't be surprised if you met other Vegans in your area, , or in neighboring areas too, surely you'll at least make some great friends online.  You're not a crazy person, like George Orwells 1984 mentions, 

He wondered, as he had many times wondered before, whether he himself was a lunatic. Perhaps a lunatic was simply a minority of one

  • There was truth and there was untruth, and if you clung to the truth even against the whole world, you were not mad.
  • Sanity is not statistical.

Great book that 1984, well worth establishing a, at the time, one man Vegan society around, along with Animal Farms "all animals are equal" quote.

Black Chick : A Life in Pictures new additions :-) PHOTOS

I held Black Chick on the day she hatched, when she was the size of Mother Hen's head, now look at my little Hen Friend :-)

The golden colour bloomed as she went through her "teenage" transition, her mother Ms Hen was all black, with a few flecks of gold around her neck (as seen in first photo), yet was perhaps not "a fully Black hen" as her eyes were golden (Lord Sauron like?), while Black Chick has always had very dark eyes, darker coloured skin on her legs.

Please visit here to see all related growth photos :-)

INVSOC Memorial Tree mockup

I've enquired with Memorial Stones about a memorial tree idea, heres a mockup, a REALLY BAD mockup :-) (check out the lack of rotation!)

If possible, an INVSOC coin would be glued into a recessed space, to sit flush with the granite surface

Yeah a hundred years! :-)

I'll have to think about the inscription, hopefully hearing from Dan, Rich, Ricky and Natalie (only people with names beginning with D, R N and J are allowed to be OFFICIAL INVSOC members, all incidentally spelling JRDN....I swear the other members are REAL, not a figment of my imagination!...)



Towards a world where

"all animals are equal"
