The show: Animal Balance, and Thunderstorms!


We finished up another All Things Vegan show tonight. Includes a great interview with Animal Balance. Show notes will be available within a few days.

We’re having beautiful weather here—90 degree days with deep clear blue skies; dramatic thunderheads in the afternoon; thunderstorms in the evenings. Apparently, I missed an impressive thunderstorm tonight while at the station. Bummer. I love a good storm.

Counting the good things


This has been a rough and disappointing week on a number of levels.

But one good thing did happen: I was really wanting to get back into going to the fitness center more regularly, maybe doing yoga every day for a while to help get my head into a better spot. And I was trying to figure out how to pay for another quarter, even at our special discount. When I went to scan in yesterday, there was a problem with my account. Uh-oh, I thought—time went by faster than I realized and we’ve expired already. But no, on the contrary, we had been gifted three months of family pass and there had been a glitch in the system causing a gap between the current date and our normal renewal date a few weeks away. They got it fixed up, and we’re good to go  into August! What a nice surprise. I knew immediately who had done it—it was a county resource coordinator who also helped my step-son with a track scholarship. She had mentioned several months ago maybe being able to help with kid passes at Juniper, but I thought it probably wasn’t going to happen. It will be great for the twins to be able to go to the outdoor pool all summer and I’m happy to be able to continue yoga and have access to the cardio machines. Maybe my older step-daughter will continue to come to yoga with me as well.

All caught up! February’s “All Things Vegan” show notes are posted.


Angeline & Simon - so cute!

All caught up! February’s All Things Vegan show notes are posted and the show is in the RSS feed. This month we featured a couple of local Bend residents:

  • Kristin Luck talks about fighting breast cancer with a vegan diet. She was inspired by Kris Carr!
  • Angeline Rhett and her son Simon tell us all about their labor of love: Angeline’s Bakery and Cafe in Sisters. We also took a “field trip” to the cafe, where we sampled all kinds of tasty raw vegan dishes and yummy vegan baked goods. I so wish the cafe was in Bend so I could go more often.

Close, but no cigar


Close, but no cigar.

Got show notes for the All Things Vegan February 14th show about 80% completed, but alas, I’m already getting to bed way too late. I should be able to finish them up tomorrow, though.

Here’s a picture of us with Dave of Dave’s Killer Bread at Winterfest the other day. I must admit we stopped by the booth several times “sampling” the Sin Dawgs, before running into Dave.
