World Vegetarian Day, Doggie Hotels, Tech Fun

It was a wonderful World Vegetarian Day celebration over the weekend. Relive it with Videocasts of the event. Two of the keynote speakers were John Robbins, the man who turned his back on the Baskins-Robins ice cream fortune that his father built and recently wrote a book about "Staying Healthy at 100" and Howard Lyman, the Mad Cowboy, a 5th generation cattle rancher who has been vegan for many years and promotes vegetarianism with gusto.

Look - you can bring your doggie on vacation - Bring Fido (or Didge or Lucy or Hershey) wherever you go!
