Languages English  
About Me I have a voracious appetite for learning and new experiences and hope that I will continue to learn until the day I leave this place. I love to read, listen to NPR, watch documentaries and surf the internet for new information - all the time! I am very conscientious about environmental issues (as most everyone here is!) and try to do my part in being environmentally responsible. I am trying to instill a sense of wonder and responsibility for the environment in my children so that they will hopefully show concern and love for our beautiful world when they are adults.

If you would like to add me to your list of friends, please send me an introduction stating why...I'm just curious that way! :)

Wild Fact About Me I climbed the highest mountain in the state of New York (Mt. Marcy), walked down the bobsled run in Lake Placid, saw Niagra Falls and went to the top of the Empire State building all in one church youth trip taken in high school. (This trip was taken thanks to my mother, who is a pastor.) I also had to become a member of the Boy Scouts to go on this trip, as we stayed on their base camp for part of the trip.

Also, my older daughter and I have met Mr. Harry Connick, Jr. and members of his band/orchestra.

And last, but not least, I share a birthday with Elvis Presley (and David Bowie).
My Philosophy We are here to take care of each other and our environment and also to grow to be the best people we can be.
What Gives Me Hope When I see people doing loving and caring things for others out of the goodness of their hearts.
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by
What/who changed my life and why
What Bugs Me Corporate greed, Intolerence, Ignorance, Telemarketers, Spam  
Passions My children, Nature, Photography  
Inspirations  
What Scares Me Disregard for the environment, Religious extremism of ANY religion  
  Favorites

Quotation "You must be the change you wish to see in the world." - Mahatma Gandhi

"In our every deliberation, we must consider the impact of our decisions on the next seven generations." - from the great law of the Iroquois Confederacy

"When the last tree is cut, the last river poisoned, and the last fish dead, we will discover that we can't eat money..." -Greenpeace banner

"He snapped, I�m the Lorax who speaks for the trees which you seem to be chopping as fast as you please.
But I�m also in charge of the Brown Bar-ba-loots who played in the shade in their Bar-ba-loot suits and happily lived, eating Truffula Fruits. NOW...thanks to your hacking my trees to the ground, there�s not enough Truffula Fruit to go ´round. And my poor Bar-ba-loots are all getting the crummies because they have gas, and no food, in their tummies! They loved living here. But I can�t let them stay. They�ll have to find food. And I hope that they may. Good luck, boys, he cried. And he sent them away. I, the Once-ler, felt sad as I watched them all go. BUT... business is business! And business must grow
regardless of crummies in tummies, you know. I meant no harm. I most truly did not. But I had to grow bigger. So bigger I got. I biggered my factory. I biggered my roads. I biggered my wagons. I biggered the loads of the Thneeds I shipped out. I was shipping them forth to the South! To the East! To the West! To the North! I went right on biggering...selling more Thneeds.
And I biggered my money, which everyone needs. Then again he came back! I was fixing some pipes
when that old nuisance Lorax came back with more gripes. I am the Lorax, he coughed and he whiffed.
He sneezed and he snuffled. He snarggled. He sniffed. Once-ler! he cried with a cruffulous croak.
Once-ler! You´re making such smogulous smoke! My poor Swomee-Swans...why, they can´t sing a note!
No one can sing who has smog in his throat. And so, said the Lorax, --please pardon my cough--they cannot live here. So I´m sending them off.
Where will they go?... I don't hopefully know. They may have to fly for a month...or a year...
To escape from the smog you´ve smogged-up around here. What´s more, snapped the Lorax. (His dander was up.) Let me say a few words about Gluppity-Glupp. Your machinery chugs on, day and night without stop making Gluppity-Glup. Also Schloppity-Schlopp. And what do you do with this leftover goo?...
I´ll show you. You dirty old Once-ler man, you! You´re glumping the pond where the Humming-Fish hummed!
No more can they hum, for their gills are all gummed. So I´m sending them off. Oh, their future is dreary. They�ll walk on their fins and get woefully weary in search of some water that isn�t so smeary...

...UNLESS someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It�s not..�
