             Welcome All Visitors to My Page

Anyone sending a request to link as Care2 Friends, please send an introduction and let me know a little about yourself and why you're inviting me as a Friend.  Thanks.

********** PLEASE NOTE ************
I've actually given one full year of days of safe water...365 days.  Since October, 2013, whenever I give another gift I lose days on the count of safe water.  I wish all members would consider giving at least a year of safe water among their giving. 

**********ANOTHER NOTE***********
I do not live in Tucson Arizona.  I live in a remote rural area of Pima County Arizona, in mountains near the US border with Sonora Mexico.  The information section of Care2's form insists on assigning my residence address as Tucson and efforts over several years to change this have been unsuccessful.

About Me
  Introduce yourself to Miranda
Pets 1 cat, grey/white Domestic Shorthair, 2 big dogs, Boxer/German Shepherd blend  
Activist Aspirations
Political Leaning Very Liberal
Religions hedge witch/kitchen witch, living with a Discordian husband  
Eating Habits vegetarian, Keep it local and organic  
Wild Fact About Me The drop-down choices under "Political Leaning" are pretty limited. The best I could do with those choices name myself "Very Liberal" but in fact I am a radical Green. I don't think that's a "wild fact" about me, but this is the only place I could find to fit this in. And I gave no answer about activist aspirations because I don't like the modifications/terms Care2 put on the drop-down. I don't think being committed and deeply involved should be described as "rabid". I don't think one is "casual" if one doesn't go beyond signing petitions, talking with others about issues, etc. I often find the modifing terms Care2 uses, in polls especially, to be way too limiting and restrictive.
My Philosophy Keep it simple, in all ways about all things.
What Gives Me Hope my husband, family, friends, students, the undying optimism and dedication of everyone who cares what happens to our world and all who live here
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by being an honest politician!
What/who changed my life and why my grandmother, who died when I was 7, but who had in that short time set me well on the positive path of my life, and my husband, who has supported and encouraged me every day in every way for 4 decades and with whom I continue to live happily ever after
What Bugs Me prejudice in any and every form, people who seek to, impose their own, beliefs and limitations on others, people who are detached, uninvolved, uncaring, about the world and others in it  
Passions my husband/best friend, family and friends, my work as a teacher, trying to make, a positive difference in the world  
Inspirations my husband, family and friends, my students, US Constitution, natural beauty in which I am surrounded  
What Scares Me not a darn thing!, I refuse to be afraid, although I know there are plenty of, scary things in this world  
Role Models my husband, my grandmother
