Great News Today! Two days left to share!


It's two days before Christmas and my wife and I are completing a week spent at our local animal shelter volunteering and trying to find homes for abandoned and surrendered animals. Tomorrow is Christmas eve and there is a lot more to do there, including a short visit the shelter one last time before Christmas.

I have no way of knowing how many followers I have on this blog other than those who have joined or how many people regularly stop by this little piece of cyberspace to read my commentaries each day, but I am wishing each of you a blessed and Merry Christmas and a prosperous and Happy New Year. And I am asking that each of you try and identify something that you can do or contribute to this holiday season or in the coming year to the betterment of our fellow man or animal.

Something to benefit your fellow man or those in the animal world that have no way of reaching out or asking for help. Shelter animals are not there by there own doing, they are there because of people. People have abused them, people have abandoned them and irresponsible people have been the cause of their birth and misery. And if we as people do not intervene, we are all responsible for their deaths in one way or another.

So take the time to contemplate what you can do as an individual to make this life better for people and animals. We certainly can't wait on our supposed leaders to do it. So maybe if we began to make a difference on an individual level? Who knows...we might actually one day make a difference that people would notice. We certainly couldn't make things any worse by helping those in need in either our world or the animal world.

Semper Fidelis! And have a wonderful and blessed Christmas.......

My son recently discovered how to find out exactly how many viewers you have, where they are looking at the site from, etc. When you log on to blogspot.com click on your dashboard. On the spot where your website is listed there, click on the Stats link. Exploring further links as to who your audience is will reveal the number of views by day, month, year, all time. It will show you by country, etc. It is really amazing to see.
