Hi, I'm a passionate environmentalist/ecologist. I'm a vegetarian on the staff of the American Vegan Society www.americanvegan.org. I'm the reviewer of new books, for our quarterly magazine American Vegan. I also, decide what we sell as a nonprofit bookseller. I am active in promoting a vegetarian lifestyle, for optimal health, the animals and the planet. I support/promote public transportation, organic/natural foods and locally farmed and sourced whenever possible. Now my interests/hobbies are: listening to old time radio shows, 1930's-early 1960's, popular music 1920's-early 1950's, All styles of jazz, except the smooth stuff. I'm a railfan, that is a lover of trains, especially passenger, street cars, subways and light rail. Lastly, I'm a small movie/theatre preservationist. I love supporting 1-4 screen, independent movie theatres and drive-ins.
