Hello all:  I am fairly new to Care2.  Done some petitions, read some news articles and have learned quite a bit more than I thought I would.   But, that is not why I am writing this article.

Under "Take Action" near the top of your screen page is a section "Click to Donate:.  By clicking the cause you generate donations for that cause.  It cost you nothing but a couple seconds at the computer, hence the "free click".

Now, maybe these causes are not personal enough to you. Or, maybe you just don't like that cause.  Well, that is no excuse.  Here are a couple of examples why:

 Although I am a cancer survivor, it wasn't breast cancer, but, I click on the cause because     that is just the beginning of the cancer fight.

 Maybe you don't have children, but I am sure you know someone who does. 

 Maybe you don't have pets, but I do.

These causes fight for all, not just the picture you see on the page.  I find it very ironic that there are over 9 million people registered as members to this site, yet when I "click to donate" there are only 1 or 2 thousand clicks for the day.   Now I don't usually get to this until around 9am EDT and there are lots of people up before me.  One day there were only 4 to 5 hundred clicks.  

Math:   9 million people = 9 million clicks   Sinple right??????

COME ON YOU OTHER 9 MILLION PEOPLE   "CLICK TO DONATE'

Well, for some time now, we have seen the tracks outside the west end of our house.  That is where the gas tank is for the gas water heater.  Underneath the tank is a large deep hole, dug by the same footprints.  Also, found another spot, same side of house, where these tracks showed (coming and going), which also appears to be a nest.

We have been tracking these for about two weeks now. This morning while outside with the dogs, I thought I saw a cat go from our garage to a small tree planted about 6 feet away.  Looking again, I realize  it was a turtle.  This is her picture:

Snapping Turtle

She appeared to be on her way to the nest we discovered 2 weeks ago. The footprints behind her looked close to what we have been noticing lately.She is about 6-7inches long. Very spikey head and tail and shell.  She appears to be a Florida Snapping Turtle.  Certainly acts like one.  Since this is nesting and mating time, I guess she is nesting under the tank.  We have a lake a couple blocks away. Information on these turtles states the femaile will wander quite a distance to nest. 

We are keeping our distance and hoping for a good educational session by watching her and seeing if she is really nesting here. Hope to be able to update everyone on the progess.
