Peace, Love, Pulse.

Rainbow Flag Picture credit: Wikipedia   A week ago, our world changed in Orlando forever and it has taken this long to be able to write about what has happened here. Words of love and hope have come to Orlando from all over the World, but for those who live here, we are all still mostly […]

Lifeguard to the rescue…

A Nurse Shark near Ambergris Caye, Belize 11-22-2003 Picture credit: Joseph Thomas   A Fort Lauderdale Lifeguard, Szilard Janko, rescued/saved a Nurse Shark a few days ago. But it only just made our local News here this morning. Janko carefully removed a fishing line and hook from the 2 foot shark and then released it. […]

Eat this, not that!

      Human plastic waste now litters Beaches and Waters all over the world! Edible six pack holder picture credit: Saltwater Brewery Plastic trash picture credit: epSos.de   This story was on our news just before we left for Flagler Beach last week. Meant to share it when we got back, but lost track of it, until […]

Murder most foul!

This Sandhill Crane family was near our house here in the Forest a few years ago. Picture credit: Walkingfox   There was no intention to write today, it is a Holiday weekend, everyone is already at the Beaches here and happily spending time relaxing with family. Alas, not so for those who tuned into the local […]

Help us stop this madness

NO MORE ORPHANS IN FLORIDA~   This will be short and ugly/ bitter. Today many, many times, they have been blasting all over our local news about the impending, not their words, Black Bear Hunt again in the Fall. Numbers  were given, with absolutely no evidence to support how these numbers were arrived at however, 4350 Black Bears […]

Forever Gone!

Picture credit : Grey 2 K   For the past two days and for as long as we have lived here in Central Florida, the News has continually covered the various groups opposing the Racing of Greyhounds. The pictures on our News yesterday and again this morning, were/are pathetic and tragic. Dogs were/are shown being forced […]

The Promise~

Circus Elephants Picture credit: Wikipedia Public Domain   This morning on our News was an ugly twist to a story that had not been expected. You may remember the post written months ago about the Ringling Bros. Circus retiring their elephants to a Retirement Sanctuary here in Central  Florida. This was a source of immense  […]

Secrets

Artistic view of how the world feels like with schizophrenia Picture credit: Craig Finn (schizophrenia patient)   A story on our news this morning was impossible for me to ignore. Many of you know that I was Nurse in California years ago, but what you may not know, is where I worked and what I […]

Invictus in Orlando

Archery at the Invictus Games,  September 12, 2014  London Picture credit: Petty Officer 2nd Class Mark Logico,  US Navy   There was a joyful announcement on our local News station here this morning that needs to be shared with all of you. This year’s Invictus Games will be here in Orlando from May 8-12,  at […]

Hiding the Hunters

A beautiful 300 pound Florida Black Bear hit and killed near our home here in the Ocala Forest. Picture credit: USFS Carrie Sekerak   So much for transparency from the King of backroom deals and hidden agendas, or the Governor of what is now known as the sad state of Florida for all wild animals. […]

A River Otter Rescue

River otters,  (not the ones in the story):  Lontra Canadensis Picture credit: Dmitry Azovtsev   This morning there was a sweet story on our local TV news about three tiny river otter babies who were rescued recently and right now are fighting for their lives. It was disappointing that after spending  most of the day calling […]

Creeping Indigo

Creeping Indigo Picture credit: Habitat for Horses   If this name means nothing to you, and you own horses, be thankful. You are lucky! This is the name of a local weed that is quite toxic and has been killing horses and other grazing animals all over Florida for years. First the story was on our local […]

No Limits!

Alvin Garcia Flores from Nebraska getting a very personal delivery Picture credit: UCF Today   As the mother of a physically challenged son, you have to know how special sharing this story with you is for me. Until you have walked, or rode/wheeled,  in their lives, it would be nearly impossible to understand just how hard […]

Packing Up the Pachyderms~

A Circus elephant in 1930, a life spent in silent suffering and servitude!   It has been painful not being here, but the reasons were clearly out of my control. 2014 was a difficult year for me, but my issues were nothing compared to Breanna’s. As of right this moment, we are both mended and well. […]

They Are My Reason

Breanna, Walkingfox and their PT Cruiser   Yes it has been a long time. The reason is simple, I am not well… I was sitting here this morning feeling a bit sorry for myself because tomorrow I will have a second blast to get a quite large kidney stone blasted out of a very run down […]

Will Steverson Stay Or Go?

Silver Springs, Nature’s Underwater Fairyland Picture credit: Florida State Memory Archives   The controversial, Scott nominated, head of the Florida DEP, Jon Steverson, is like a “bird on a wire” at the moment. He has previously failed to be confirmed for this appointment by the Governor and if he is rejected, or fails to be confirmed […]

Breanna’s Favorite Day!

Breanna’s Halloween Adventures!   Today this house is filled with joyful anticipation by our Airedale Breanna. She has waited patiently all year for this day. Last year because of all my cancer surgeries and countless trips to Gainesville, we all missed this much-beloved day/night. But not tonight, not this year! We have all the decorations up, […]

It Is Over!

A beautiful Black Bear Cub. Will we ever see another one? Picture credit: Unknown   Score Scott and Company ONE, Florida Black Bears  Zero! I had to compose myself before writing this, it took some time. Yesterday in Tallahassee, Judge Reynolds, who I am reasonably sure was appointed by Scott, said that the FWCC had every right and indeed, every responsibility to order […]

Can We Trust You?

Forest elephants (Loxodonta cyclotis) in the Mbeli River, Nouabalé-Ndoki National Park, Congo. Picture credit: Thomas Breuer   If you have been here long, you know that over the past 3 years on WP, I have been bitterly disappointed, frequently deceived and flat-out lied to, by those who are in place to protect Global Wildlife. So, on Friday when […]

So Long Sonar!

This awesome picture of a Pacific Blue whale is courtesy of NOAA fisheries!   The United States Navy has made me a fan once again, with this latest move to save the lives of so many of our threatened and endangered Ocean wildlife. Over the past few years in this very Blog, I have written ad nauseam about […]
