Since as far back as I can remember, I have always been a crusader for the rights of all living things. My belief is that all living things have the right to life and the freedom to live it.

"I would not enter on my list of friends, one who needlessly sets foot upon a worm. An inadvertent step may crush the snail that crawls along the public path, but rather he who has the humanity forwarned, and will tread aside, and let the reptile live".
(William Cowper)

My 9 yr old daughter Hayley is following in my footsteps and would like to be part of this page.....

"Somebody should tell us, right at the start of our lives, that we are dying. Then we might live life to the limit, every minute of every day. Do it! I say. Whatever you want to do, do it now! There are only so many tomorrows." ~ Michael Landon (1936-1991)



Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter. --  Martin Luther King Jr.


"Biomedical research does not need animals. It is foolish and even dangerous to follow this traditional way. The difference between man and animal is so great that it usually leads us into error" ~ Professor Luigi Sprovieri, February 1980.

Such profound sadness...

“I wish that the government would step into the 21st century and recognize that animal tests are unreliable and cruel, I call upon the governments to validate the more modern non-animal tests and move away from torturing our fellow creatures.”  ~ Paul McCartney

RIP Felix

Non-violence leads to the highest ethics, which is the goal of all evolution. Until we stop harming all other living beings, we are still savages - Thomas Edison


Until he extends the circle of his compassion to all living things, man will not himself find peace - Albert Schweitzer

“If anyone other than white-coated scientists treated monkeys, dogs, cats, rabbits, pigs, and so forth as they do behind the locked doors of the animal lab, he or she would be prosecuted for cruelty.” ~ Dr. Jane Goodall

The Starfish
Author Unknown
One morning a young man was walking along the beach, his bare feet in the sand... He looked down the beach... In the distance, he could see someone dancing along the water's edge with a beautiful rhythmic movement...

As he got closer, however, he realized this person was not dancing... He could see her stooping to pick something up, running, and throwing the object into the waves... As he approached her, the man saw that she was picking up starfish on the beach and tossing them into the sea...

She stopped for a moment, as he asked, "What are you doing?"

"The tide is going out," she responded, "and these starfish stranded on the beach will die unless I cast them back into the sea..."

"But there are miles of beach and thousands of starfish," the man said... "You cannot possibly make a difference..."

Without responding, the girl bend over, picked up another starfish, and hurried it to the ocean.  "It makes a difference to this one,"  
 she said...

    Hi Kathleen! (Do you sometimes go by Kathy for short? OR, do you prefer Kathleen?)How was your Valentine's Day? (Or, do yous not do "V-Day" in Canada?)My granddaughter is starting to take her 1st. steps, & she's only 9 months (uh-oh!)The beach sure does sound good right now, for it's quite cold here, too! (brrrrr)The sun is shining bright; but, it sure is deceiving! Hey, will you pass me the tanning lotion? (I'm dreaming I'm at the beach! lol!)
    Peace, hugs, & much laughter, Kathleen

    Maybe this pic can make us at least think about Spring?
    Have a great day, Kathleen
