This is not good. We need to make more of our own pet treats or buy locally made products. I will be sharing homemade dog treat recipes with pictures coming soon.

The Wisdom Of Squirrels

I saw a squirrel the other  day sitting in a snow storm gathering some food from our feeder. It was freezing cold and the wind was making it snow sideways. He did not bravely fend off the storm or resist its influence on the day nor did he get angry or upset about it, no heroics or drama just doing what is needed to be done. I feel that often we spend a lot of energy with worry and stress about things we cannot change. The wisdom in that small act of food gathering seems to cover a lot of ground. I wonder how much of our life's troubles are just snow and wind. So I say lets worry about cats , dogs, and eagles when it is needed but let the wind blow and let the snow fly, it is what it is. If baby squirrels can figure it out I think so can we.  ~ Manimal
One of our local visitors last summer.

The Whales Of America's Arctic Need Your Help

Sierra Club::

"Big Oil wants to drill in the Polar Bear Seas of the Arctic. This would be disastrous.

These seas are home beluga, bowhead and grey whales, as well as 20% of the earth’s polar bear population, ice seals and birds that migrate from six continents.

Turning these seas into an industrial drilling zone would have a catastrophic effect on wildlife, making it difficult for them to mate, birth their young and feed. And an oil spill in this area would be impossible to clean up: the seas are dark two months out of the year, covered with deep sea ice and subject to hurricane-force winds.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) is about to issue their recommendations on this drilling proposal. They have the power to stop it. Tell them to use this power and recommend that the Polar Bear Seas be kept safe from destructive oil drilling."

There's nothing like growing your own garden fresh organic vegetables. There's something special about being able to pick fresh fruit and vegetables. Knowing your children are eating healthy brings peace of mind. I'm very lucky my city is full of farmers markets every weekend offering fresh food.
When food is shipped all over the country it loses some of it's value, it's nutrition and it's pizazz!
Not to mention the environmental impact it has from exhaust emissions spewing into the air. A team of Farmers have gotten together to help make it more accessible for Americans to have access to fresh food.

Roses are red violets are blue ......

Rose are red violets are blue I love my pets but hate their poo
........well, I had every intention of writing something very clever to accompany that little verse. However after typing it I found that to say more would be pointless it  seems to says it all in one sentence.
