Re: Idea Drop Box

I wanted to add a small banner link for this site on my myspace profile, if one exists I'm not finding it on the website... Anybody wanna direct me to the right place? And if one doesn't exist yet, then I guess this ...

Re: California voters approve gay-marriage ban

Well you're an activist. get out there and write the laws that prtectct the rights of both sides, while allowing gay marraige. I'm an activist, not a legislator. That's not the only case. Keep searching. Apart from the above-mentioned lesbian couple seeking to hold a ceremony in a park, I found 1.)...

Re: California voters approve gay-marriage ban

I don't think anyone involved is saying that a particular church has to marry anyone. This has already been done. I hope you read up on it more and discover for yourself that is's just not as simple as people would have you believe. Well to be up front, while I want to keep a cool head and not stoo...

Re: California voters approve gay-marriage ban

I don't think it's as much bigotry and a type of racist issue as all you name callers pretend it to be. It's about freedom. And I don't think most people are as homophobic as many people would have you believe. (once again name callers) I thnk it's more that people don't want other peoples lifestly...

Re: ben's training journal - advice welcomed

Thanks a lot for the tips DV! I've definitely upped my calories considerably in the past week, since I've been back in the gym. I think diet was the main reason i gained so little before, especially since I was making gains in strength but not adding mass.

Re: Vegan Sneakers Under $60

Zappos.com has a search function that you can type "vegan" into. Sometimes something on sale pops up. Free shipping usually, and I've mailed a pair back on their dime to swap out the size before.

Re: ben's training journal - advice welcomed

Rest day. My original plan was to do a full-body workout every other day, but I'm thinking of switching to a 2-day split, just because my schedule is hectic and there may be weeks where the only way to get 3-4 days in at the gym is to do a couple back-to-back. 6:30am breakfast - cheerios w/ soymilk,...

Re: THNKSGIVING!

I'm lucky, my mom went veg when I did in high school. So the whole Thanksgiving & Christmas tables are meatless, with some special vegan dishes for lil' old me as well. She makes a rockin' vegan pumpkin pie. (Not to mention the greenbean casserole, cranberry nut bread, roasted potatoes, candied ...
