I am a fifty-something grandma (my favorite role) of two lovely, sweet & silly girls! :)

While I listed my political leanings as Liberal, I am not a democrat! My politics are closer to The Green Party than any other affiliation.

Wild Fact About Me I hitch-hiked across the U.S. in 1970 from Kansas to San Fransisco and back. It took 3 months.
My Philosophy
What Gives Me Hope The dawn of each new day
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by As Mayor:
To begin with, I would implement a plan for all schools to plant a garden so the food grown could be used to feed students, etc. Next up is to re-establish the use of outdoor clotheslines... not sure how to get around laws and HOA. Provide plenty of options for recycling; develop programs to encourage more people to recycle. Lobby to become a state that pays $ on returned bottles and cans. Instead of putting non violent offenders in jail I would make use of the able bodied ones for city clean-up and such, along with fines, if relevant.
I'd create a City Kitty :P consisting of community funds donated for the use of spaying/neutering cats and dogs for free or reduced rates:for everyone, but would prefer those who have low income and Seniors. Animals out roaming around will be humanely caught then spayed or neutered and kept by city until the owners "bail" them out (money goes to the City Kitty) with low fees so people can afford to. This is so people learn to keep their pets inside for the pet's own safety. For homeless people I'd section off a small part of the city for them to live. Supply minimal resources, such as, toilets, rustic showers, tents or other protective cover. Have a volunteer run "store" where supplies (clothing, towels, soap) are free or very low cost
that have been donated. An eating area will be needed; like picnic tables and indoor eating where the food is prepared and stored. Plant a garden to help with the cost of food. Funding from the city can be used partly from the money that is saved by having fewer people in jail and donations. Make and enforce stricter laws concerning animal abuse and gun ownership.
What/who changed my life and why The story of Romeo & Juliet... John Lennon. My true love, my bffs D. & J. All of my pets. Moving to L.A. from Iowa as a kid:) culture- shock. Even more of a culture- shock; moving from L.A. to Kansas as a teen:(
What Bugs Me People who are critics of activists, Those who fund poaching, Ranchers, NRA, Closed-minded people, Militant Atheists, Rabid Anti-Vegans, Excessive Consumerism  
Passions God's Creations  
Inspirations Animals, Sea, Nature, Rivers, Lakes, Forest, Thunderstorms  
What Scares Me Violence, Cruelty  
Role Models Henry David Thoreau, My dad, Jesus, Elizabeth Taylor  
Quotation Fashion is a form of ugliness so intolerable that we have to alter it every six months.
~Oscar Wilde

"When the power of love overcomes the love of power the world will know peace." ~Jimi Hendrix
Interests The Arts and Nature, Aromatherapy, Mythology / Folklore, Green Party United States  
Books Agatha Christie, Sherlock Holmes, Almost anything worth reading, Stephen King
