“The Animal Communicator” movie is more about telepathy than nature

I cultivate a network of nature lovers in Corvallis and Albany (www.neighborhood-naturalist.com). I started to hear about this new movie “The Animal Communicator”. You can watch it on YouTube free 52-min. http://youtu.be/KIOXZLUAfXw but read this post first. I’m a conservationist and an advocate for animal rights. You’d think I’d love a movie about connecting with …

The remodel’s not DONE; but it’s finally livable while the last few bits trickle in… Once everything IS done, we’ll be inviting everyone to come and see… šŸ™‚ *SO* …

The Great Remodel Commences

Oh yeah, I should probably mention — Angela and I are now living in a hotel for 6 weeks while our house is massively remodeled. I *JUST* got my computer reassembled and online at the hotel. The physical pain we are both experiencing from a long weekend of boxing and packing EVERYTHING away is… indescribable. …

Yay for Atheism!

I recently recently got a new car… (a cute little sporty Hyundai Accent – which I loove!) And since I am a perpetual adolescent girl trapped in a middle aged woman’s body I still love stickers, sparkles etc… I got a Darwin Fish, FSM decal and a great big, black sticker with large white lettering …

Back in the ER…

Spent all evening at the ER with Angela. Ā Still here at 2am. Ā So far, nobody’s figured out what’s broken with her this time. Ā But whatever it is, she’s not particularly enjoying it. Updates later when we know something…

Angela hospital post-mortem

Angela returned from the hospital on Tuesday, having dropped 60 pounds of water weight in 5 days. And we have BOTH continued to lose weight since then, due to a parting gift from the hospital that Angela shared with me — a lovely case of norovirus. Yup, we’ve both been sick as dogs this past …

My father

Well, I didn’t make it to the January CSS meeting, as I had planned. My father, Ross Byers, at 99 1/2 years old and increasingly poor health, died on my birthday, as I was just getting ready to fall asleep.Ā  So Angela and I had to race off to Houston, to comfort my mother, and …
