Help Wildlife Now (and Thanksgiving isn't over just yet!)

It's still technically Thanksgiving weekend, and Christmas is as good a time as any to be thankful for presents and feasts. 
 When wildlife is in the way, help them, too;

Donate Pumpkins, Pumpkins, and more Pumpkins..!


All these years and it didn't occur to me to donate pumpkins at season's end..!?! 

Better late than never I always say. 

Pumpkins last well into November, so after Thanksgiving, after the pumpkin pie when meals are satisfied (and wallets a little thinner), when there are left-over whole pumpkins from decorations, 

please think about donating to the critters at your local zoos. 

In addition to rescue work, whether one agrees with zoo-keeping or not, it can help the critters. 

Help with their play-time enrichment and ease the cost of food a bit, especially when it's so difficult to donate either time or money, these can be wonderful places to help out and recycle..!

Businesses Open 4 Business...

 It looks like businesses are opening ever so cautiously on my route. 

That the machines are doing okay is a plus.  

One very nice owner said that no one visited the machines and I could remove it if I wanted, but when I opened it up to see just how bad it was, it wasn't bad at all! I could even tell the way the quarters fell into the hopper that it was visited different times, very awesome! 

That's exactly the way the route is supposed to be, too, productively unobtrusive. 

It's still too small of a route to count, a lot of people, stores, and machines lost along the way, and I don't expect to exactly be able to make a living from it, but I started it for the critters, and we all held out. 

I didn't give up and am pleased with the results.

I say prayers every Friday, not sure why Fridays, just always worked out that way, maybe so I can go into the weekends without worry. May Gd bless us, He knows what He's doing...

No Comments...

 This blog is getting lots of emails without any commentary, just email addresses. 

Only a few emails have their business names within their domain but without a question or comment, I can only guess it’s a sales attempt. 

When the email is from gmail or yahoo with no question or comment, what am I supposed to do with that? 

Are comments coming thru or even being typed in? Please Comment! Thanks

Earn, Save, and Give..!

 I'm very proud to support HSUS, Humane Society of the United States. 

They have gone after and closed down pitbull fighting rings, they helped support, re-train, and re-home Vick's dogs, keeping their new homes secret for fear that champion fighters would be stolen, very dangerous. 

It is a drawback because in order to help animals, organizations sometimes get involved in politics. 

When certain groups of animals are found to be thin and not thriving, organizations will try to resolve the problem by getting involved politically in misguided efforts to help the animals. 

The underlying problem is almost always financial which can be very difficult to track without the wherewithal to do so, often requiring time and money just to track financial support of political groups, a notoriously difficult thing to do! 

One thing I'm still trying to understand is why SeaWorld doesn't advertise all the wonderful rescue work they do..?!? When they were getting bashed and nearly closed down years ago, they didn't seem to bother to defend themselves at all, at least not publicly. 

Reputable Aquariums and Zoos frequently, directly or indirectly, support rescue work, and it's very expensive to feed everyone, please support them during difficult times. 

Reminder, animals that were born and raised in the care of humans would not survive in the wild. They are not necessarily so miserable as to have to be 'set free' to fend for their lives and compete for food supply.

Thank you!
