Whatever we do to the web, we do to ourselves.

All things are bound together.

All things connect.

About Me I care deeply about the environment and would like to find someone who shares my concerns. I plan to own a ranch in the not-so-distant future, part of which will be set aside as wildlife habitat. I am seriously considering opening a Bed and Breakfast (eco-sensitive, of course). I love animals. I speak Spanish, which comes in really handy when traveling. If you are local, male or female, I would love to find a hiking buddy.
