About Me: (at least a couple of sentences; ex: family, interests, hobbies, favorite quote, personal mission statement, etc
I live in Auburn in Northern California, United States, and I have 3 adult kids in their mid to late 30's, and have 2 Grandchildren! I have 3 cats. I love Vegan Raw Foods and I love Gardening, Movies, TV, Reading, meditation, LIFE. And I especially love HUMOR. :-) My Dad owned a restaurant and other businesses, and anytime he took us out it was for the most expensive and the best SAD diet (Standard American Diet). They didn't know better. Both parents are passed on now. So glad I found Dan McDonald, Dara, Penny, Bill, Dave, and many more who are into being a Raw Vegan. I know we are all at different levels of our food journey. I love everyone no matter what they eat. May you accomplish all you set out to do in your own life. I look for the good, the positive and the constructive every day. :-)
