The women all over the world play this most important role in the community where they live. They are the givers of life, they are the nurturers, they are the foundation of the family unit. They provide knowledge, experience, time, effort, guidance, love and so much more. 

They help us all have “the good life”.

Life

“You’ve gotta dance like there’s nobody watching,
Love like you’ll never be hurt,
Sing like there’s nobody listening,
And live like it’s heaven on earth.”
~~William W. Purkey~~

“To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people exist, that is all.”
~~Oscar Wilde~~

“There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.”

A Few Forgotten Memories

Reblogging this from my “pussycats3″ blog.

I came across an old memory card from a camera and found some photographs I had completely forgotten about.  Romeo and Rusty were quite young in these, and I’d like to share them with you.

Romeo in little houseRomeo is in this little “house” that I bought for him so he could have a place where he would feel comforted and cozy.  As you can see, he was starting to get a little big for it, and he had to fold himself in it.  His leg just couldn’t make it!!  I think this might have been the last time he went into this “comfort zone.”

Romeo and Rusty atop wall unitRomeo and Rusty are sitting on top of the wall unit in my office.  I should have had the flash turned off on the camera.  Romeo is sitting on top of one of the speakers (he is a flyer – nothing is too high for him).  Truthfully, I…

Some Things Have Changed in Mykonos, Greece

Standard

Many years ago, my husband Bob and I did lots of traveling, and one of my favorite places was Mykonos, Greece.  We “did” the Greek Isles boat trip over several days’ time, and Mykonos, was by far, my favorite of them all.  I’m sure most everyone who goes there will feel the same way; in fact, I’ve spoken to some inveterate travelers, and that was their thinking, as well.

On my Twitter account, I came across the photo below, and, although it wasn’t typical of the plain white-washed stone homes with the bright blue roofs and blue doors at the time we were there, it totally caught my eye.

They once roamed wide swaths of Africa. Now they’re making a last stand. And you can help them survive.

Please sign our petition encouraging measures to protect Africa’s last remaining rhinos!

Dear Friend,

Rhinos are almost gone from the wild. The Western black rhino species has been declared extinct and the two other rhino species found in Africa are close on its heels towards disappearing from the face of the planet.. From 13 rhinos killed in 2007 in South Africa alone to a projected 1,027 rhinos killed by the time 2014 draws to a close, rhino poaching rates in Africa have skyrocketed.

You can help protect Africa’s remaining rhinos by signing this petition!

All this for a lucrative black market where poachers make millions of dollars from people who buy the…
