The Easiest Candied Nuts You Will Ever Make

The Friendly Fig

I love love love candied nuts. Those stands at Christmas markets and on the street in the city – oh my God, I’ll buy it all. And can we bottle that scent as a perfume? Thanks.

You never really know what you’re getting (as far as ingredients go) when you buy from booths and food carts, so I wanted to create my own recipe that used all vegan ingredients. This is a perfect, healthier alternative to store-bought Halloween candy and is a great treat to keep on hand for the holidays. It can easily be doubled (or tripled…or quadrupled, let’s be honest) and it comes together so quickly. Keep reading for the details!

ACTION ALERT: US Democrat Senators, Up For Re-Election, Who Voted For The 2011 Wolf Delisting Rider

Howling For Justice

Avenge wolves delist Congress Justin F 1.

October 30, 2014

Vote these Democrat bums out of office!! They sold wolves down the river for Jon Tester’s Senate seat, in the Spring of 2011, by voting for the budget bill/ wolf delisting rider. Only 3 US Democrat Senators voted no. Why did they do this? To hold onto their Senate majority. President Obama signed the bill into law.

What the rider says:

(“SEC. 1713. Before the end of the 60-day period beginning on the date of enactment of this Act, the Secretary of the Interior shall reissue the final rule published on April 2, 2009 (74 Fed. Reg. 15123 et seq.) without regard to any other provision of statute or regulation that applies to issuance of such rule. Such reissuance (including this section) shall not be subject to judicial review and shall not abrogate or otherwise have any effect on the order and judgment issued by the United…

Rediscovering Merlot

The Wine Wankers

A scene from the movie "Sideways" Merlot hate?   A scene from the movie “Sideways”

Poor Merlot!

With just one line “I’m not drinking any f*cking Merlot!” the movie “Sideways” is believed to have delivered a hiding to the quality producers of wine from this noble grape.  For some strange reason, a lot of wine consumers took this line as meaning that Merlot was now uncool and not really all that good after all.

Why It Matters That PetSmart Discriminates Against Pit Bulls

Emilio Cogliani

One of Michael Vick’s former dogs died this week.

Hector the pit bull was two when he was rescued out of the NFL player’s Bad Newz Kennels.

He then got to live with a wonderful family — Clara and Roo Yori — who did all they could to give this dog the great life he so deserved, after his hellish beginning.

Hector even got to work for a while as a therapy dog, while also galavanting around the country with his human parents, proving over and over again that even pit bulls who have suffered through the worst abuse can thrive, and live safely, in loving homes.

I recently asked Roo what were the best parts of having Hector in his life. He said it was a very long list.

One thing he noted was that Hector was the ultimate adventure buddy.

Another, he said, was “knowing that…

8 Reasons Pit Bulls Are Better Than Most People

Emilio Cogliani


I do and say a lot of ridiculous things, and people don’t bat an eyelash. I walk my pit bull down the street, and I get the strangest looks I’ve ever seen. People look at me, then at my pit pull, then back at me with confusion, disgust, fear, or any mix of those.

Pit bulls get a bad rap, and they haven’t earned it. It’s the jerks who train pit bulls (and other breeds) to be aggressive that deserve the bad rap. Those are the ones that deserve the “looks” (and in many cases jail time).

But still, I get some mighty odd glares when walking my pit bull. No matter. I’d rather hang out with a pit bull than most people any day. Here’s why:

  1. Pit bulls are smart. They’re darn smart. Heck, my pit bull is even smarter than I am. She ignores commotion around her and…

WATCH: Woody Harrelson Wants You to Vote for the Environment | Ecorazzi

Life or Lunch?

woody-harrelson-592x442Woody Harrelson is getting political, encouraging people to use their vote to save the environment.

In a new television commercial from the political action committee NextGen Climate, Harrelson takes on climate change deniers. The ‘True Detective’ star, vegan and activist narrates the ad likening those who say climate change is not happening to people who denied the earth was round, cigarettes were bad for you and pollution was no biggie.

“Now they tell us climate change is a hoax. Some powerful people want to hold us back,” he says while images of crumbling glaciers and forest fires fill the screen. “But the truth is undeniable. This is a fight we will win.”

In the end of the commercial, people are reminded to vote on November 4th with that knowledge in mind.

The NextGen Climate political action committee was started by billionaire activist Tom Steyer with the intent of campaigning for…

Great Cats of the "World"

Thank you U.S. FISH and WILDLIFE SERVICE (FWS) for Sealing the Fate of The “African Lion”.
You have shown The World once again, where your compassion, and your priorities lie..
The Almighty Buck is going to help Wipe out the Remaining of this Species………………………………………………………………………………..

Safari Club International For Immediate Release: October 27, 2014
Major Setback for Anti-Hunting Efforts; FWS Rejects Attempts to Stop Lion Hunting;
Washington, D.C. – Today, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) rejected the claim that the African lion merited listing as an endangered species under the Endangered Species Act. After a long and comprehensive review of the species status, which included information from the foremost lion researchers in the world, the FWS concluded that the African lion simply is not on the brink of extinction and did not merit listing as an endangered species.
