Good Afternoon Kay ~ Kathy and friends...
Kay ~ my son is over in your part of the world meeting many of his family members for the first time and LOVING it...quite different from Australia for him.
It is cloudy and humid here where I am...and today is a special day for my family.
6 years ago we adopted 2 Australian MIA missing soldiers from the Vietnam War...and after being missing for about 45 years ~ they finally found them and they were returned to Australia to our National War Memorial at last. So our hearts are glowing with love and appreciation.
Have a lovely day or evening and stay warm Kay ~ sending you sunshine

Anyway here I am at last ........
Hope you are all well & happy....hope I didnt miss too much
Have a safe & happy day
Hi Serenity, Kay, Erin, Lynn, and members, I hope that you have a wonderful week. Glad to see the care 2 is working again. It was some crazy havoc on Saturday and Sun with the care 2.
Greetings Dear Ones...
A lovely thread with truly lovely posts and pictures
Fernmeadow ~ that is a beautiful painting!
I have not been around much since I joined Care2..I got comfortable here, made a few precious and wonderful friends, joined a few nice groups and then we lost our Internet for 2 weeks and then I had computer problems (lucky Hubby is a wizz with our computers) so that got fixed and then I could not get into Care2 at all for a couple of days.
Its hard to get to know you all with all these little hiccups but lovely to be able to post again.
Wishing you all a very blessed and happy week ahead!
And A Happy Earth Day !
Today we pause to remember that our earth sustains
us only as long as we sustain it. Let us remember that
we are only just a part of this fragile
system; we are not in charge but by virtue of what we
have done we hold temporary responsibility. We survive
and thrive only as long as we sustain one another and
sustain where we live. Earth day is not about only the
soil we stand on and the air we breathe but the encounters
we have on this earth and with this earth and how we can
recognize, sustain and enhance the good.
On Earth Day, may we too, be a blessing to Mother Earth.
May we revel in Her, and She in us. May we leave Her
healthier than we found Her.
Blessed Earth Day!!
Wishing you all a safe & happy week !

Its evening here in London and it was a very cold day today , I cycled to work and the cold made my face ache , but I felt invigorated after.
Today I saw pretty crocuses spreading all around , making pretty carpets among the trees and grassy areas..they tell me spring is on the way here , and most welcome it will be...
Have a safe & happy evening.

Hi Kay and Erin, It is raining here today; I read that Mass. would get snow and Erin just told us about it. I like the new look that you gave to the group page Kay. Hi Holly, hope you are fine. Have a good day to everyone.
Good Morning Friends
How are you today ?
Decided to have a little change and a bit of redecoration here in the group... could call it springcleaning I guess as spring is on its way
Can you believe it will be 1st of March tomorrow?
Time is passing so quickly it seems to me...
Have a happy day , keep smiling
I hope that you all had a great weekend,and that your upcoming week is happy.
I was telling one of my clients today that everyone has problems,There is both good and bad in everyone's life.A happy person is not one who has no bad in their life,but who focuses on what is good.
I hope that all of us can do that this week.Hugs!
During WWII, Irena, got permission to work in the Warsaw ghetto, as a
She had an 'ulterior motive'.
She KNEW what the Nazi's plans were for the Jews (being German).
Irena smuggled infants out in the bottom of the tool box she carried and she carried in the back of her truck a burlap sack, (for larger kids).
She also had a dog in the back that she trained to bark when the Nazi
soldiers let her in and out of the ghetto.
The soldiers of course wanted nothing to do with the dog and the barking covered the kids/infants noises.
During her time of doing this, she managed to smuggle out and save 2500 kids/infants. She was caught, and the Nazi's broke both her legs, arms and beat her severely.
Irena kept a record of the names of all the kids she smuggled out and kept them in a glass jar, buried under a tree in her back yard.
After the war, she tried to locate any parents that may have survived it and reunited the family. Most had been gassed. Those kids she helped got placed into foster family homes or adopted.
Last year Irena was up for the Nobel Peace Prize.
She was not selected.
Hello,everyone.Have a great weekend.Hugs!

Good afternoon everyone. I have been taking a bit of a break from the computer and concentrating on some things around here...especially my art. With all the snow, and we got another load of it yesterday, I am finding my studio to be the most wonderful place in the world. I bring my collies in with me and they lie knawing on bones while I put my brush strokes on the canvas. It is all so peaceful as I have relaxing~spiritual music playing softly in the background while I paint. The dogs are getting bored with all this snow now and in some way so am I but it certainly is a special time for me with no hard garden work. We are thinking of putting the Croft for sale this spring and moving closer in to the facilities we need. I have found a nice one acre property, still rural but yet in a village with all the things necessary for our needs. It could take awhile to sell so no guarantee this property will be there but either way we feel that we need to be closer to medical care not just for ourselves but for our animals. I lost one of my collies 2 years ago because the vet that is here only comes in from the big city for 1/2 a day...once a week and sometimes you can't even get in to see her. We have weighed up in our minds what are the most important things and we need to be closer to some care. Anyway, for now I just carry on painting and letting the "Spirit of Love" guide us in what direction we should go.
Above is my latest paiting....it is called...."Grandfather is Watching". The loggers cut holes in the trees so they can insert boards to stand on while they cut the tree down. It leaves an impression of eyes and in seeing that I painted "grandfather" watching over all the life around him. The old man of the forest you might say.
Anyway everyone....a blessed day to you and a wonderful weekend everyone....fern
