Oh, and while we're on the track of promoting sites other than this (ha!) I'm going to stick another link here for Meetup. I stuck up a news item on it when the site relaunched, but it got bumped off pretty quickly. So a return to the stage it is!
http://vegan.meetup.com - go, join up, socialise, meet random people. What could be more enticing than that?! Don't answer that.
