I’m pretty sure everyone saw THAT VIDEO of the poor turtle getting a straw removed from its nose. That’s when I decided to make the change. Since then I have refused any  ...

2017, The Year of change. Looking back

2017 what a year! I wanted to look back over the past year rather than a look forward to 2018. 2018 holds a lot of uncertainty for me but that’s good.

I guess I want to start with one thing I did not expect.  ...
