When I stopped eating animals more than 25 years ago, many vegan cookbooks (when you could even find them) were a little uninspiring. They often seemed to have one goal: convince meat-eaters that they could still enjoy their favorite carnivorous dishes, with a few substitutions. I like “fish” tacos and Philly cheesesteaks as much as […]

A few years ago, the hardscape portion of my landscape was being vandalized nearly every night by some curious critter—most likely a raccoon.

When PETA’s fieldworkers found Sebastian, he was trapped in a barren dirt pen with no food, water, or shelter.

Posted by at 7:47 AM | Permalink | Comments (5)

Some may want to buy a birdfeeder, but if you place feeders out for the birds they can provide as many dangers as they can benefits and can also attract rats and mice as well as predators. Instead, it’s best to use living plants to help transform your back yard into a natural bird and […]
