Richard wrote:"The "Fit Vegan Photo Calendar 2006" is a joint project of fit vegans from around the world. Our aim is to correct the common misconceptions that vegans are frail, skinny and weak. In fact there are countless vegan athletes who prove every day that a plant based diet delivers more than enough energy and nutritients for high performance in sports. The twelve pictures show athletes of various levels, from professional triathletes to amateur bodybuilders to fitness enthusiasts. The "Fit Vegan Photo Calendar 2006" is the perfect gift for vegans and from vegans to friends and family. We hope you enjoy the calendar and wish you a happy new year 2006! "

I think it sounds fine apart from those alterations I would make, which I've high-lighted


After the phrase "In fact" in the third sentence, there should be a comma. "Plant based diet" should probably read "plant-based diet"

Thanks, CG!

I always get confused about these rules, as they're different in German (i used to know where to put a comma before i learned English, now i don't know when and why in German either :? ).
No one said it would be easy.

ive been vegan since 7th september 2003. i remember the date specifically as it was the day i got back from nepal.

hehe - the american system of dates is silly - makes more sense to start with the smallest part (the day) and then work to the largest (the year). i reckon you guys just do it to be different :P

Aww, I wish I were calendar-worthy, but I really don't think I am!

Heh, good point on the dates, I'm used to seeing it both ways - you are right though, Topher's is in November, he wrote it as we Americans do :)

My dad lived in Europe for awhile though (4 years in England, 2 in Belgium, and 4 in Italy, possibly more,not sure) Anyway - so he picked up the habit of writing his dates in day/month/year format, and I picked it up from him, so I tend to do it both ways! (which means I always know what I mean, but I often confuse others :P )

Sorry - off topic again. :( I'll have to find another way to make it up to you. My next thread you can hijack ok? :D

I guess that means your avatar pic isn't really you?

:lol:
Are there any threads in this forum that are NOT hijacked after 5 posts? :P
I take you by the word, however, your next thread is mine :twisted:

day/month/year is also done on our Scuba Certifications. We go over this with our students so they don't overlook it and get their Certification Card back with the wrong Birthdate.

Topher,

You could have used your amazing rainfall background picture in which you look like a Greek god, like I said to you last year on a thread!!!

Did you submit that pic? That was perfect for the calender!!

I'm happy to say that tomorrow, approximately 20hours from now, the calendar will most probably be finished and the first test copy printed 8)

Robert will distribute the calendar in the US. He said 100 copies would do for the beginning. Do you all think he's right with that estimation? All say:
NOOO! :lol:
;)

For the Europeans, send an order to my email adress or pm me in the forum.

If anyone wants to buy a whole box for re-selling, that's possible also.

I hope i will get some organizations to distribute the calendar, or it might end up a very tiny project :?

Daywalker,

I would contact Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (at www.pcrm.org), of course PETA, Friends of Animals, etc . etc. Definitely contact pcrm.org


There are lots of people on veganfitness.net that are involved with various organizations. Perhaps they could ask their organizations to sell the calender.

I could probably post ads around campus? I don't know how effective that is, or what the most effective way would be, but I'm sure there's got to be some sort of market on campus? Ideas?
