Re: How campus food has drove me crazy

I consider myself very lucky because I belong to a co-op. Student-run, with student cooks. Everyone makes food with a minimum of grease and a maximum of love and care, and my co-op is "vegetarian with vegan options." Lots of greens, lots of beans. I'm feeling pretty good. If your school ha...

Hey, vocalists: Say someone was a little over 30, never had formal voice training, and had an interest in singing someday in a band-like-thing.
