vintage valentine image girl w heart on wrist

Complete Valentine Friend..

A friend is like a Valentine
She has a loving heart.
You share with her your feelings;
Her listening is an art.

A friend is like a Valentine;
Like candy, she is sweet.
And that description fits you, friend;
You make my life complete!

By Joanna Fuchs 

 

Friendship Valentine Poem

Friendship is a wondrous thing;
There's so much happiness it can bring.
I’m really glad that you’re my friend,
And I hope our friendship will never end.

Happy Valentines Day friend!

Glad that India led the way; too bad we haven't met the standards of India and show we value the lives of our animals.

The little cares that fretted me,           
I lost them yesterday
Among the fields above the sea,
Among the winds that play,
Among the lowing of the herd,
The rustling of the trees,
Among the singing of the birds,
The humming of the bees.

The foolish fears of what might pass
I cast them all away
Among the clover-scented grass,
Among the new-mown hay,
Among the hushing of the corn,
Where drowsy poppies nod,
Where ill thoughts die and good are born-
Out in the fields with God.

Good News from China, finally ~

China Crushes Illegal Ivory Stockpile

China started 2014 off in a big way by crushing six tons of confiscated ivory in Dongguan on January 6. In late 2013, AWF, along with partners WildAid and Save the Elephants called on China to raise awareness about elephant poaching and reduce the demand for ivory. AWF's CEO Patrick Bergin said, "We commend the Chinese government for taking this important first step and hope it signals their sincere and growing commitment to help end the elephant slaughter in Africa."

SAVE THE FROGS! Education Center Grand Opening Celebration

Dear Iain,

Please join me Saturday March 29th for the Grand Opening Celebration of the brand new SAVE THE FROGS! Education Center, located at 2524 San Pablo Avenue, Berkeley, CA 94702..

Please RSVP here.

If you cannot attend, I encourage you to donate to support our efforts.

Our frog-filled extravaganza will commence at high noon with a two hour frogging expedition to find and photograph native amphibians in the Berkeley hills. All afternoon at the Education Center we will have presentations about California's native amphibians, local and global conservation issues, and the history and future of SAVE THE FROGS!. There will be activities for kids, including origami frogs and frog art lessons.. Our favorite frog art and photos will be framed and on display and available for donations. From 730pm until late we will have amazing live music by myself and some of my most talented musician friends on an array of instruments from around the world. And of course we will have our eco-friendly SAVE THE FROGS! merchandise for sale, all proceeds to amphibian conservation. Please reserve your spot.

Save The Frogs Berkeley

"Best of luck with the new center. I am certain it will be a game changer that helps you go even further in your mission".

Another Victory: Virgin America Drops SeaWorld

After hearing from PETA, Virgin America, the U.S.-based airline that serves several popular cities across North America, removed SeaWorld from its rewards program. Virgin America joins a growing number of travel companies, including Southwest Airlines, United Airlines, JetBlue, Alaska Airlines, Hawaiian Airlines, and STA Travel, that have made the compassionate decision not to promote SeaWorld. However, Virgin Group—the conglomerate that formed Virgin America—is a separate company, which is why we still need to urge Sir Richard Branson and Virgin Group to stop promoting SeaWorld.

Thank you, Joy. This picture shows an entirely different outlook than we normally have. If only man had kept this outlook. History tells us that there was a time when animals were killed 4 survival not profit or vanity. Too bad we have forgotten that. Love this picture, Joy. Love to give you a star, but I just did on another thread. Take care and have a great rest of the week.

Yes, Nancy .. there so much we can learn from these animals. What a tragedy we humans have made for these animals. Thank you for all the stars.
