Vegan Girl Welcomes You!

This site map is a list of old pages which reflect what I used to be about between 2000 and 2003 when I first put up the site. As you can see, it was A LOT of animal rescue, which was very rewarding, with a sprinkling of other random things like home ownership, fiddling, thoughts about my mother, and, of course, veganism. These days, I'm more interested in health through raw vegan food, art, my new life in Asheville, zany retirement schmes, and embracing and enjoying every day.

At this point, many of the offsite links don't work anymore.

Why is this site such a wreck???

I'm sorry, did you come here looking for information on veganism? Well, you won't find much of that here. This is a site that only my close friends and Aunt Kathie would appreciate. It's just a bunch of crap about me and my life. I just happened to get a really cool domain name. If you want vegan resources, check out She kicks ass. If you want my domain, send me a cashier's check for one million dollars.

Well, OK, I should give you something. Here's a very informative video:

Meet Your Meat

Now back to matters of little or no consequence...

I am now living in Seattle, WA! It was a fun journey from Austin to Seattle, with my friends Michael and Susan, their dog Sam, my six animals as well as my sweet foster dog Giselle who was then adopted by Michael and Susan and had to make the long trip back to Austin again.

That is me I decided to move when I was laid off from the software company I had been working at for the past 2 years. It took me a few months to sell my wonderfully cute house, but thanks to my realtor Tim Tole, I got my asking price, even in this crappy real estate market. While I was waiting, I spent as much of that time as possible dancing. I took lindy hop lessons from Austin Lindy Hop. They have the best and the cheapest lessons in Austin. I highly recommend them. The Austin Swing Syndicate holds really terrific dances. Great music and lots of friendly people. I have gone dancing in Seattle a few times, but haven't quite kept up the same pace here.

I moved to Seattle mostly for the vegan food. So far I have not been disappointed. I have been vegan since early 1995 and was not thrilled with the dining options in Austin. There are about a dozen all-vegan establishments in the Seattle area. These include a donut shop and a pizzaria. Those and the other restaurants serve amazing food. There are dozens of vegetarian restaurants in town as well. I haven't been to all of them, but the ones I have tried have been very good and very vegan-friendly. There is a particularly good bakery nearby that is almost entirely vegan. Hopefully they will drop those two or three non-vegan items from their menu eventually.

I spend a lot of my time at the Vegan Warehouse which is home to,, NARN, and a pool table.
