I’ve had a terrible bad luck this summer! Got a nasty infection in both my lower legs and ended up hospitalized for 2 weeks. Was released from hospital at the beginning of June but still have a small sore on my left leg, otherwise I’ve healed up pretty good. Well I just wanted to let everyone know I’m still around.
I believe it is important to share Shaun’s story of the making of this award – others may differ with my opinion but duch people bother me none.
I started it for this reason:
“This is an award for everyone who is part of the “Word Press Family” I started this award on the basis that the Word Press Family has taken me in and showed me love and a caring side only Word Press can.
The way people take a second to be nice, to answer a question and not make things a competition amazes me here. I know I have been given many awards, but I wanted to leave my own legacy on here by creating my own award, as many have done before.
This represents “Family” we never meet, but are there for us as family. It is my honor to start this award. Thank you,
1. Display the award logo on your blog. 2. Link back to the person who nominated you. 3. Nominate 10 others you see as having an impact on your wordpress experience and family 4.

Florida wildlife officials said on Tuesday they killed a seventh bear, an adult female bear, hours after announcing the capturing and euthanization of a 250-pound male bear overnight.
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission officials didn’t say that they have identified the bear that attacked Terri Frana Saturday night at her home at 1900 Brackenhurst Place in the Carisbrooke subdivision, which backs up to the Wekiva Wildlife preserve.
She received 30 staples and 10 stitches in her head after a 200-pound bear mauled her.
And, for the model to work, there must be at least three populations with this movement happening between them. The good news is that this is possible, provided that the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service establishes two additional populations and lets lobos move from population to population.
When Baltimore Police officer Dan Waskiewicz responded to a ‘vicious dog’ call, what he found instead was a new best friend!
When he arrived on scene, officer Waskiewicz found a frightened, obviously neglected pit bull, being chased by children that were yelling and throwing bottles at him. He called the scared dog over, his tail tucked between his legs and panting heavily, and offered him some water. The so-called ‘vicious dog’ quickly sat down beside him and began licking his pants. Realizing the pit bull was no threat, he put the dog into his squad car – that’s when the real kisses began!
Rather than call animal control, who Waskiewicz feared would euthanize the affectionate dog, he drove him to the local animal shelter himself. During the ride, the pit bull sat…

Every day there is bad, very bad or really bad news about wolves. But ”Ranking Member of the House Natural Resources Committee Peter DeFazio” is speaking out for wolves. He wants the national wolf delisting rule revoked.
Rep. DeFazio D -Oregon and 73 other House members, who oppose the national wolf delisting rule, are urging Secretary of the Interior, Sally Jewell, to keep wolves protected under the ESA and to ”rescind the proposed rule immediately”.
Thanks to Rep. DeFazio and the 73 House members who joined him. We must stop this rule.

While Journey carries on his quiet existance in southeast Oregon, a group of five ambitious folks are making plans to retrace the enigmatic wolf’s footsteps, from Wallowa County to northern California, a distance of over 1,200 miles.
I received an email from Jay Simpson, who holds the lengthy title of National Geographic Young Explorer & Multimedia Documentary Producer for the Wolf OR-7 Expedition. Jay explained the purpose of the trek is to ”share the story of wolves returning to the Pacific Northwest and champion the collaborations that have made his (OR 7′s) journey possible.”
The trek is the brainchild of Oregonian Rachael Pecore-Valdez, a storyteller and educator. She’ll be on the trip (which begins in May and will be on foot or on bike) as well as Dave Moskowitz, author of Wolves in the Land of Salmon, Daniel Byers, and filmmaker, Galeo Saintz, founder of Wild Peace Alliance, along…
