Death is nothing at all

Death is nothing at all.
I have only slipped away into the next room.
I am I and you are you,
whatever we were to each other, that we still are.
Call me by my old familiar name,
Speak to me in the easy way which you always used.
Put no difference in your tone,
wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow,
laugh as we always laughed
at the little jokes we enjoyed together.
Pray smile, think of me, pray for me.
Let my name be ever the household word
that it always was.
Let it be spoken without effort,
without the trace of a shadow in it.
Life means all that it ever meant,
it is the same as it ever was.
There is unbroken continuity,
why should I be out of mind
because I am out of sight?
I am waiting for you
somewhere very near
just around the corner.
All is well.


Henry Scott Holland 1847-1918
Canon of St Paul's Cathedral

 In Loving Memory of my Mother....

Kathleen Ellen Mac Arthur 4/10/1914 – 12/08/2008

Dear Members

These past few weeks have been hard here on Care2 even on Broadband. I feel sorry for members on Dialup. This petition I created is asking Care2 to remove old dormant and never used Profiles. This will free up space on Care2 and we can load our pages faster if there are only true members Profiles here.

Jailed for 20 years! Dead in 10?
Schapelle Corby's young life is on the line.
 
Let me tell you the truth
No-one exports marijuana from Australia to Bali.

If we can’t stop

one case of obvious Human Rights abuse

How will we save ourselves?

They charged her with importing marijuana into Indonesia
but refused to test it to see where it came from.
Had they done so they would have had to release her immediately


Read the petition and weep for a life lost!
Click here and sign our petition to
Bring Her Home... a Free Woman!


No-one deserves 20 years
locked in a 3rd world hell hole
where the average life expectancy is
10 years, for a crime they did not commit.

She may be dead 10 years
before they let her out!



If you felt this was worth signing . . .
please forward it to other caring friends.

Thank you so much!

Subject: re Tysons owners
Hi Helen
Here is some news on Tysons former jailers.
Will let you know the outcome
hope you are well
Heather
Hello Friends who Care for Animals:
Londoners are joining with groups like WSPA (World Society for the Protection of Animals) and Zoocheck to generate public support for Better Legislation to Protect Captive Wild Animals in roadside zoos.
Please go to www.friendsofcaptiveanimals.ca to read about the need to pass laws to regulate the care of animals in zoos and private collection. You can send emails from that site to urge our provincial government to pass effective laws.
Please help by attending a Peaceful Demonstration
at: the Provincial Court Building - not downtown
824 Dundas St. East  - between Rectory and Ontario.
Jan. 21, 2008  - Monday
9 AM to 11 AM
- Several buses pass the courthouse. There is a parking lot you must pay to use, and on-street parking meters. Many of the streets nearby have parking restrictions, so if you want to find free parking, allow extra time as you may have to search.
The occasion is another court appearance by the owner of Lickety Split Ranch and Zoo, Ms. Shirley McElroy.  Ms. McElroy is charged with Possession of Native Wildlife without a license.  See background info below.
It is important to let our provincial government know that we citizens continue to care about the lack of legal protection for captive animals in zoos and backyard collections.
We Londoners need to let our City Council know that we care about how animals are treated within our municipality.
We also need to let other zoo-owners know that we expect them to care for animals in a responsible and compassionate way.
So – We need to continue to show up for these court appearances, as our absence would send the signal that we have lost interest.
If health concerns prevent you from standing for 2 hours, then please come to sit in the courtroom. Your presence there will also show support for captive animals.
Only effective legislation will help these animals, and public action is needed to ensure that this legislation gets passed.
We will bring many signs, but bring your own to express what you wish. If you cannot bring a sign - come anyway.
  BACKGROUND:
London has been home to a zoo considered one of the worst in Ontario – the former Lickety Split Ranch and Zoo.  This is the zoo that received international attention for its inadequate housing of a kangaroo named Tyson, in a pen so small he was not able to hop (his natural movement.) More info at: www.friendsofcaptiveanimals.ca
This is Ms. McElroy’s third appearance on this same license violation. In Dec. of 2007 Ms. McElroy read a bible passage in court regarding ‘man having dominion over the animals,’ even though the presiding Justice of the Peace told her this approach was inappropriate in the courtroom. Ms. McElroy then asked for an adjournment as she had hired a lawyer who needed time to prepare. The next court date was then set for Jan. 21, 2008.
Please email me to let me know if you can show up for this.
Best wishes,
Vicki Van Linden
Friends of Captive Animals

StarsButterflies Leonie P.

Please continue to pray for Leonie P who had a stroke before Christmas here in Brisbane. She is only in her 30's and was already disabled. Leonie wrote me a message last night (Friday) that she is still in hospital here in Brisbane so I have asked her to let me know which hospital so I can go and visit her. Can you please light a candle for Leonie also to give her strength as she goes through rehabilitation that she will be well and home again with her family soon.

The story of this faithful 7 yr old cat Libby, is so touching. She is the eyes and ears for Cashew, a 14yr old Labrador who is both deaf and  blind. Sue A. my friend and also Care2 member from Freemantle..Western Australia sent it to me in an email and so this share is from both of us. I hope you enjoy this story as it is a beautiful story of a dog and cats devotion that goes beyond the usual friendship of family pets. Both Cashew and Libby are pets of Terry Burns, from Pennsylvania. The only time they are apart is when Cashew is taken for a walk by Terry. Libby and Cashew sleep together and Libby leads Cashew to her food and water bowls. She helps her in every way she can. This cat is a Hero, and deserves to be recognised as one.
