The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams  – Eleanor Roosevelt.
Welcome to my world……  which is full of love and laughter because of my children, grandchildren and my precious pets. 
I love all animals, but I have a special place in my heart for Elephants, Wolves and Big Cats!  Sadly, these are all Endangered Species.  We need to work together to make a world where all creatures can live together peacefully.
My favorite places – Yosemite National Park – the best nature has to offer!  And our California Coast  -  some of the most beautiful scenery in the world!
We might not be able to change the world individually, but when you change your world, you have taken a major step in changing the world.  And when you change your world for the better, you have positioned yourself perfectly to change the world of those around you.
Somebody once said that no raindrop takes any responsibility for the flood, nor does a snowflake blame itself for the blizzard, yet the reality is that each one played a part.  Unfortunately, too many people throw up their hands and say, “What can I do?”   You can reach down and extend a helping hand to people in need.  You can speak out and be an encouragement, not only to those around you, but through them influence countless other people.  The life you live makes quite a statement.
Life is not measured by the breaths we take . . . . But by the moments that take our breath away!

About Me Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, wine in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO HOO what a ride!"
