HI WUFRIENDS!

I watched a little doggie die on a heap of trash in India, many years ago. I will never forget that dog. I caressed it and cried my eyes out. But, before the light in his eyes grew dim, he saw and felt my Love. And I was forever changed.

EVERY ACTION OF OUR LIVES TOUCHES ON SOME CHORD THAT WILL VIBRATE IN ETERNITY.

When we help those who suffer, we may never know the results, but one thing is sure: We are making this world a better place - and I wanna be part of it.

TODAY I DECIDED IT’S GONNA BE A GREAT DAY... SO FAR I HAVE:

-Helped protect 11.4 square feet of rainforest habitat for wildlife.
-Given 1.1 cups of food to the hungry.
-Helped another woman in need get a free mammogram.
-Given .6 bowls of food for rescued animals.
-Helped a homeless and hungry veteran get a free meal.
-Helped provide therapy for children living with autism and their families.
-Helped a child with lifesaving health care.
-Helped give a child in need a book to read and treasure.

YOU MAY THINK FINN’S BEEN REAL BUSY – LOL! NOOOPE. TOOK ME 19 MOUSE CLICKS AND 43 SECONDS TO DO ALL THE ABOVE HERE:
There are 8 small buttons above the green “Click Here to Give - it’s FREE” - button:
Hunger, Breast Cancer, Animals, Veterans, Autism, Child Health, Literacy, Rainforest.
WHY CLICK? Because of this story:
A man walked along the shore scattered with thousands of starfish, beached and dying after a storm. A young boy was picking them up, one by one, and throwing them back into the ocean. "Why bother?" asked the man. "You're not saving enough to make a difference". The boy picked up another starfish and sent it spinning back into the water. "Made a difference to that one", he replied.
- Adapted from a story by Loren Eiseley.

My old blog had a plea for passing the word around on behalf of two senior dogs, MAX & JOHNNY, who needed a home. Thank you, all you angels, who cared and shared their story. I GOT GREAT NEWS TODAY...
Way Too Happy A wonderful lady adopted them both! Now they are happy, running and playing with her young puppy on a green lawn. This made my day, my week, my month... and will be one of the best news of this YEAR OF THE DRAGON!

THERE ARE ANGELS AMONG US - DISGUISED AS "NORMAL" PEOPLE... They care, they make things happen. They save lives. Like PORTLIGHT. Check them to see how they do it - THEY ROCK!

Heya {{Finn}}

Good to seeya m'friend!

Well, the two of us have become 'those strange cat people'. Sad, I know. We have four feral cats around us. A friend was able to snag one of them -- Rascal -- and carried him down for the once-a-month-vet-visit to get him neutered. He's adopted us, and we feed alla them, in addition to our baby, Nico. Nico is cool with Rascal, but not with any of the others.

Honestly, I don't blame Nico. Rascal seems to have some modicum of manners, but the rest are just selfish beasts; no sniff noses, no rolling on their backs, nothing to indicate any desire to get along whatsoever. Apalling. It's like they were born in a barn.

Not only that, the three wild cats don't seem to care for me firing up the amp and guitar and rockin' the bush.

No shame to it, I guess; just a matter of not being raised properly.

Hi Jus and Gams, good to see you :)

(I just deleted a tornado watch that was posted here, so nobody gets confused:)

Has been raining nicely!

I'm off to Finland this evening, been invited to host a meditation retreat and I have to do lots of other stuff too, back in two weeks.

Stay safe and be happy :)

Hoping that I don't have any to feed them this year!

Just checking in wondering how you are doing.

Thanks Gro, Gams and Jus! Same to you.

I had some caterpillars in my tomatoes a few years ago, freaked out and threw them in the lake :( Now I know better.

Huripoetfriend, glad to hear your hearts and home is open to a new family member. Please post pics when he/she gets settled... ok? What would we do without our pawfriends... Max & Sophie have been with us for six years now. To the exact date! We brought them home from the shelter on April 8th 2006. What a blessing that decision has been!

Hello Friend Finn,
You know we are more cat people than dog people, in that we live with cats and enjoy our doggie neighbors. Neither we could do without as they are life-sustaining and enriching. I saw a beautiful grey and white kitty yesterday jumping down from neighbor stairs into the bushes. I went and set on the stoop hoping to entice her out but that did not occur. I sense that we will have a new kitty come to us soon. Such that every one I pass I think, are you the one? Silliness. Joy. Love. And that's what I share with you.

Hello Finn,

I just did my food click. so easy to feed the animals that way.

I was looking around and saw the info about the Monarch Butterflies being in danger?

Really have a hard time beliving that. I have swarms of them in my garden. I buy milkweed and other plants/flowers they like and have them growing all the time. My plants get bare from all the monarch caterpillars...
The grandkids and I sometimes will take the caterpillars and put them in the butterfly hatchery and watch them make chrylis and hatch and then let them go.

I read somewhere else about how rare they are in Florida... well who ever wants to see them needs to come visit me; most of the year I have them.

and the Zebra butterfly caterpillar eats up all my parsley and dill! I alway grow enough to share. LOL

You have a wonderful weekend.

Have a Blessed and Happy Easter Weekend!

Happy Friday to you Finn,

Like Skye I heard about that dog in the news... so happy it go a happy home..

People who abuse animals should be ????? (fill in the blank) I know you are a more "peaceful" person than I am but I have low tolerance for people like that.

Anyway wanted to drop by and say Hello!!!

Okay,
I don't usually watch stuff like that because it damages my calm, but you said "wonderful story" so I did.

So great that Fiona was rescued and found folks to love her.

Been crazy for the last 10 or so days, but wanted to stop by and say HI!

Have a great night!

Oh BF and Gams, I'm so in my writing world that I didn't know what day it is... :) I bought some corned beef at Public just because it looked good, didn't know it was a must eat today. It was delicious.
Felix Pate would be on my crackers every day of the year if they had not stopped making it :( But there are of course variants of smoked fish pate made for humans, but they're not as good!

Have a great day and week m'friends, alwaya good to see yas!

I am so glad they didn't say December! Can you imagine the chaos?

Is a shame that we don't have a system to deal with this yet. But hey, the Russians still have rockets. Maybe they can deal with it!

OH MY... I didn't expect such a heart-warming blog to come back to!

Thank you {{{gams}}}, {{{Pros}}}, {{{BF}}}, {{{Karen}}}, {{{Rob}}}, {{{Hyper}}}, {{{Jeff}}}, {{{Pat & Nola Roux}}}, {{{Shore}}}, {{{Doc}}} and {{{Skye}}}!!!

I have totally recovered from the flu and now writing with full inspiration! My book designer, in charge of preparing the English version of Kun Lun, broke her back :( and that has delayed the publishing, but it will come out soon (how many times have I promised that...?) A few more weeks and it'll be available.

And yes, I enjoyed the Finlandia Days and the Lake Worth Street Painting Festival held to honor MY 62 circles around the sun! :D

Thank you friends, your visits warmed my heart and this blog.

Happy Birthday!!!

Lake Worth Finlandia Days Festival sounds like a festival made for you. I bet you enjoyed.

Sorry to see your relapse. Trick is weeks of rest. Nasty stuff going around this year. Kids brought home more last week. The one that missed the upchuck fest a few months ago made up & we all got something snotty.

Atleast when we are baking this summer we can rejoice in the lack of 30+º temp changes from day to day..

Popping in to say hi after my daily clicking round. Great stuff they have on all the sites.

LOL Skye, my first thought was to eat it! I've had a minor relapse, coughing some more, but maybe it's just Qigong cleaning my lungs :) How are the kids?

Been out and about for almost a week, as I was invited to speak at the authors forum and then spent long days selling my book at the Lake Worth Finlandia Days Festival. OMG, I ate sooo much... all them goodies from my native country right there, fresh and delicious. I'm still stuffed, but that made up for 4 weeks of not eating too much!

Who knows where to get good strawberry plants? I bought a cool planter last week and can't wait to fill all the holes in it.

Seemed like it was about 2-3 weeks here too. D-fly & I had a bad dizzy headaches. W-Bug had the usual croup. Did the steam with various things infused & herb baths. Feverfew was the staple herb that got D-fly & I through. I had to make him a licorice base syrup when it went for his lungs..

Hope you feel all better soon:)
