I've been reading from this site for a few weeks and have finally signed on to be a participant in this amazing, supportive, uplifting raw community. Not 100% raw at the moment but increasing from about 60% at the moment. Very excited to be here!
p.s. Be sure to see my pictures, I'm very proud of myself for getting them up as I'm pretty computer challenged.

Well I'm excited to welcome you here stephbkr! You're right, this place is amazingly supportive and uplifting. I personally love what I'm doing now that I've changed my lifestyle! And I know that I can't do it alone. That's why this site is so valuable to me. I wish you well on your raw journey!! Fantastic pictures BTW. Also, London is my favorite city in the world!!

Thanks for the warm welcome...
I love to travel... London was great and how about all the juice bars? AMAZING! Every few feet! One day when I got sick in London and did not want to lay in my hotel room, I just walked around the city juice bar hopping! Loved London...
Took a peek at your journal, very inspiring!

Welcome from another Nashvillian. I'm from Spring Hill, just South of Nashville.
We have a raw food support group here in Nashville. Maybe you and your husband would like to come to our next meeting (first Sat. in Nov.). Here is the link to our group:
My travels are more local - Jamica, Mexico, Bahamas, Canada, but our children have been to England, Israel, India, Nepal, as well as the 4 places we've been to, and then my husband has been to Japan. So our family has gotten around. I personally like to stay right her in Tennessee and occasionally go to the Caribbean - love the tropics!

Well back in the day :).... when I was there I don't remember all of the juice bars. This was in 86-91 when I lived there. Although I do remember all the other bars so to speak :).
My wife and I celebrated our 1 year anniversary in London, and had a great week there. I also married my wife in Scotland, although she's an American.
I hope everything is gonig well for you. I look forward to reading your journal, and following you along!

Thanks, Hellen, I'll have to check out the raw food group. I think a friend of mine went last spring. I may be going to North Carolina that weekend in November but it's not definate. I was close to Spring Hill just a few weeks ago on my way to Gray Bear Lodge for their raw food weekend with Laura Button and stayed a few days for the juice fast. What a lovely place, if you have not been you MUST go: www.graybear.org.
If your children are still in traveling mode, they would love Thailand! It is a beautiful country full of wonderful people and lots of incredible fruit. Of all places, that's where I was introduced to raw foods.
Maybe I'll meet you soon!

I've never been to Grey Bear Lodge, but have been to their website before. The one event I wanted to go to, 1 week juice fast with Dr. Larry Rowdan, was $1,500 or $1,800 - way out of my league (unless I was very sick and dying). Maybe I'll find a day event to go to and check out the area; it does look like it's very nice there.
I hope you will be able to attend one of our raw food potluck meetings and get to know some other raw foodist in our area.
The kids are done with most of their traveling now. Most of their trips were high school and college related. Others were family vacations and once we sent our son when he was 12 to Mexico City to stay with one of our exchange students for a couple of weeks. Now they are too poor to do much traveling outside of the U.S as Mom & Dad don't pick up the tabs now :eek:
