Save Pete the Moose

The story of Pete and his human friend, David, is a unique tale. Pete was attacked by dogs and mauled when he was about 5 days old. Vermont Fish and Wildlife told the people who found Pete to let him die. They couldn't bear to just leave him there. So, they took him to a kind man named David Lawrence, and he nursed Pete back to health.  Click here for the rest of the story.

Sheep Fire - 8:15 AM

We are currently under voluntary evacuations; the east side of town is under mandatory evacuations. The sun is up but there doesn't appear to be any air support. There is no smoke or ash in Wrightwood but the winds are gusting which isn't a good thing. The fire started yesterday afternoon in Lytle Creek and has now spread to 3,500 acres.

Never Forget

For those who jumped, the fall lasted 10 seconds. They struck the ground at just less than 150 miles per hour — not fast enough to cause unconsciousness while falling, but fast enough to ensure instant death on impact. This is one man's story.

Oh, Christmas Tree

This is the new pop-up Christmas Tree die from Stampin' Up! The tree measures 5" high and is approximately 3.5" at the base. The base of the tree is attached to the crease in the card so the tree pops up when the card is opened. Really, really cool.

Well here's the inspiration for my craft room, a craft table from Pottery Barn. Now you may be saying to yourself, "Who would spend over $1000 on a craft table?" Well, not me.

This is where the fun begins. Since Joe's dad, Pat, is a carpenter I had an easy solution. Have Pat build the craft table to my specifications. Great idea, saves money, and will surely look way better than what Pottery Barn can produce. Little did I know that this would lead to a complete renovation of our garage apartment.

Independence Day

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

Farewell Ned and Bunny


On Saturday, November 8, an emaciated Asian male elephant named Ned was confiscated from Florida based circus trainer Lance Ramos by the USDA for failure to comply with the Animal Welfare Act and was placed by USDA authority with The Elephant Sanctuary in Tennessee.

Ned was born into the captive breeding program at Busch Gardens, and at age two, sold to a circus trainer and performed with the Big Apple Circus until 2000. Later, Ned was traded to another circus trainer who hired him out to the Royal Hannaford traveling circus until Ned’s emaciated condition attracted the attention of the USDA.

On May 15, at 3:42 a.m. Central Time, Ned, the second elephant ever confiscated by the United States Department of Agriculture, died peacefully in the company of his caregivers at The Elephant Sanctuary in Tennessee. 


Bunny was born in 1952, captured in the wilds of Asia and transported to America as a young calf. For more than forty years, she lived a mostly solitary life at the small Mesker Park Zoo in Evansville, Indiana.  She was officially retired and arrived at The Elephant Sanctuary in Tennessee on September 29, 1999 as the Sanctuary’s fifth resident. For the first time since her capture from the wild, Bunny slept out under the stars.  

On May 14, at around 3:30pm Central Time, Bunny, the second to the oldest elephant resident of The Elephant Sanctuary in Tennessee, died peacefully in the company of her caregivers. Bunny’s long time elephant companions, Shirley and Tarra, kept a round-the-clock vigil nearby.

Hoover Dam Bypass

Construction of the Colorado River Bridge is advancing with construction of the 1,060 foot twin-rib concrete arch.  The Colorado River Bridge is the central portion of the Hoover Dam Bypass Project. Construction on the nearly 2,000 foot long bridge began in late January 2005 and the completion of the entire Hoover Dam Bypass Project is expected in June 2010.  When completed, this signature bridge will span the Black Canyon (about 1,600 feet south of the Hoover Dam), connecting the Arizona and Nevada Approach highways nearly 900-feet above the Colorado River.
