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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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. […]

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 […]

Of Bluebirds, Buntings and Blessings~

Picture credit: Walkingfox   You know the old saying,  “when God closes one door,  he opens another?” After the fighting, the endless,  wasted phone calls,  the many  days of ugliness and pain, connected to our Forest and the constant logging trucks full of pine trees going up our road,  I was exhausted, defeated and depressed. It had all been […]

Masticating Mollusks~

Oyster Sloop, Cos Cob Painting credit: Frederick Childe Hassam   The sun is out here in our part of the  Sunshine State  for the first time this week, the rain has finally stopped, although we desperately needed it, but nearly a week of not seeing sunlight, got to be a bit overwhelming. And with this bright […]

Carte Blanche

A Right Whale mother and Calf   With this most recent  seal of approval, the US Navy is now  free to deafen, maim and murder sea life in both the Atlantic and the Pacific. They have been given Carte Blanche. The might of our Military will now be allowed to forge ahead full steam,  knowing well the consequences […]

Fin Soup Is Not Fine

A Lemon Shark Picture credit: Albert Kok   After having to repeatedly watch some idiot this week  wrestle a shark to the shore   just to show off and take its picture, as well as a recent rash of Shark abuse stories,  I swore that if there was even one more ugly story about them, I would have […]

Class Of 2013 Cranes

               Whooping Cranes following the ultralight       Adult and juvenile Whooping Cranes       Whooping Cranes in Flight   This is a very exciting day for those of us here in Florida who love the spectacular Whooping Cranes. The young ones have just arrived at their  “Crane College”  today in Wisconsin from the Patuxent Wildlife Research Center in Laurel, Maryland and will spend the […]

A Fed Bear Is A Dead Bear

A young Black Bear Picture credit: hans-stieglitz   Once again this morning, I had not intended to write, but once again it was not to be. This state has a pretty poor record, in my eyes, when it comes to “nuisance,  (their word not mine)  anything.” Nearly every day in our local news, there is another […]
