A sidebar- nothing animal made is vegan, right?

Hate to sound stupid but it seems that everyone is arguing about every thing these days...

Right, vegan is completely animal product free. My diet matches that of a vegan but I'm not part of any group.

Is it your Mom's family that's mostly veg or all of Washington State?

BTW, my niece and nephew saw your photos and convinced my brother to take them to the farm & home store for baby chicken petting this evening.

I can't testify to the dietary habits of most Washingtonians. Most of my family there are Seventh Day Adventists and hold to a mostly vegetarian diet. :)
