    Now in my 15th year as a vegetarian and “almost vegan” it’s hard to believe I had waited until age 32 to change my diet but with each passing year I’m so glad I did. Birthdays give me a chance every year to stop and reflect that aging isn’t so bad after all! I shudder to think how it so easily could have turned out otherwise! All the best to you Ingrid Newkirk on your birthday and every day! p.s. Enjoy some celebration music from my favorite artist vegetarian or otherwise Chrissie Hynde The Pretenders!
