    Retirement Home & Clydesdale Horses..... ..

    What a wonderful video, not only to watch those gentle giants but to see the joy in the residents faces. Animals are the best.

    Recycling Plastic

    My first thought was throw it in the garbage, I cannot do that so I will spend some time resorting. My neighbour recently bought a copier, he was told to return the packaging to the store . Things are looking up.

    It Takes Effort To Be Social Living Alone

    Wonderful things happen every day. Watching an eagle flying in the sky, listening to the water ebb and flow on the beach, getting licks from my dog.
