XMAS / DECEMBER RAW PARTIES
RAW PARTY, CALIFORNIA
La Jolla, 12-2008
Met with Happy Oasis & Susan Schenk this weekend, at River's house.
about her world travels in the Himalayas, the Pacific Northwest &
the Tropics. She runs the Raw Festivals on a grassroots level &
wants to make a difference in society accepting raw food.
her about Arun's noble goal to reach out & make a difference with
the Obama groups. Happy got very excited & said Arun translates
into something very special in Hindu & that she wants to call Arun &
start networking with him. Happy is a born leader I could tell
that right away. Happy can be found on previous page of
rawkinradio, where I can also be heard. Happy has an interesting
story about all these people dying practically in her arms while she

passing she renamed herself Happy Heavenly Oasis as a result.
Susan Schenk spoke about her updated book "The Live Food Factor"
Susan spoke about her interactions with Virginia Vetrano the
wonderful photos of Vetrano doing calistentics up in a tree. Susan
also summarized Shelton's Fasting Can Save Your Life work into about
a four page outline, also contained in her live food book.

XMAS PARTY, TEXAS|
We had our annual NH Xmas party & potluck on Saturday, for members, spouses & supporters. Lots of raw veggie dishes, raw cheeses, and a few cooked veggie dishes.
Everybody appreciated the food, e.g. the raw "cauliflower pate" from Susan Schenck's book, Mamiko's kale with walnuts, Mary's grated sweet potato on lettuce-boats.
We got small gifts from Japan - e.g. cows (it is the year of the cow), & newly designed member certificates.
We talked about travels members had done & were planning.
Mamiko talked about her Japanese books & lectures, other books, and distributed food pyramids. Anna gave a talk with slides, about energy & sex & Natural Hygiene, based on Dr. Bass new book on Energy-Karezza, and the discussion got pretty wild after that.
