Check out the new vegan online magazine LUV4All – 25 fantastic articles from vegans around the world. There’s so much fascinating and inspiring stuff to read – I’m reading one article a day. Like this one: Nation Rising by Sheanne Moskaluk, about a Canadian campaigning group who are demanding their government stop subsidising animal farming and instead spend their tax dollars helping animal farmers to transition to crop farming.  You can watch a video of highlights of the protest speeches and interviews at Parliament Hill in Ottawa, Canada.

There’s an article by Katrina Fox about a new law in Missouri which bans the use of ‘meat’ terminology to describe any food products that haven’t come from a slaughtered animal.  It means that vegan brands could face imprisonment or a fine of up to $1,000 if they use words like ‘sausage’ or ‘hot dog’ on their packaging or describe their products as plant-based ‘meat’.  It’s absolutely crazy and of course is whole heartedly supported by the Missouri Cattlemen’s Association, because they want to ‘protect the integrity of their products’!!!!!!

Honestly, this mag has so much – you can read about activism, animal rescue, health, athletics, lifestyle, raising vegan kids, there’s even an article about Violet’s Vegan Comics 😉 It shares veganism from all walks of life, everyone playing to their strengths and being part of the solution.  This is only the second edition (the first came out in May this year) so if you don’t want to risk missing it in the future, make sure you subscribe in the top right hand corner of the Home Page 😀

 

30 ways to make a panda out of stuff you already have in your house part 4

Make a panda today! 😀

rrrmelon

This is my online activity series which was inspired by Violet’s Vegan Comics’ online presentation of Lavender Laine’s story, What’s good for the goose is not good for the Panda.

Tada!  Here is my latest panda:

So what I did was I went through some old magazines I had in my house, and I cut out black pieces for ears and eyes and arms and legs, and white pieces for the body.  And I used a piece of photocopy paper to glue my pieces to.

I found some neat things to make my panda out of, like you can see she’s got a dish of rice for her face, and her body is made from a blouse in a clothing ad.

And then what I did was I made her eyes and nose by cutting out from a photo of a spaniel!  How cute is that?  She did look a little ticked…

Three Brown Cows

Violet's Vegan Comics

vegan nursery rhyme

Three brown cows.  Three brown cows.

See how they run.  See how they run.

They all run after the human ilk,

Who kidnap their calves and then steal their milk,

The cows want their calves back, the humans can’t bilk,

The three brown cows.

Old MacDonald had a farm,

E-I-E-I-O

And on that farm he had no animals,

With a crop field here and a crop field there,

Here a crop, there a crop,

Everywhere a lot of crops.

With snow peas here and chick peas there,

Yellow peas, maple peas,

Lovely green organic peas.

Bonny Brenda

Bonny Brenda

Met a vendor

At the Summer Fayre.

Said bonny Brenda

To the vendor,

“What have you got there?”

***

“Oh lots of things,”

The vendor said,

“There’s pies and breads and pasties,

Steak and kidney,

Sausage rolls,

And even bacon butties.”

***

Brenda frowned,

She was not pleased,

She found his stuff distasteful.

His folding table,

Six feet wide,

Held entrails by the plateful.

***

“Sorry I asked,”

Said Brenda at last,

“That’s yucky, you’re disgusting!

And if you think

This doesn’t stink,

You need your brain adjusting!”

Bye Baby Bunting

Bye Baby Bunting


Bye baby bunting,

Daddy’s making something.

It’s safe and strong and soft within,

To rock his baby bunting in.

Bye baby bunting,

Daddy’s painting something.

It’s lilac, blue and pink within

To rock his baby bunting in.

Bye baby bunting,

Daddy’s fetching something,

A thing of beauty, made by him,

To rock his baby bunting in.

Little Miss Greylag

Little Miss Greylag

Sat on a beanbag

Eating her mint Moo Free.

Along came a rabbit

Who tried hard to grab it

So Miss Greylag went straight home for tea.
