Way too important to let slide!

A friend put up her first post in a while and in the links she included was one for this. Apparently Bush and friends are after our natural resources again, this time it's the old growth timber in Alaska! If you click on the title above, or here it will take you to a page that explains what they're up to, and how to attempt to stop it.

At some point in my life, like Will Rogers so many years ago, "I gotta see that Alaska". It would be nice if it was still there when I get to!

I spoke to one of the new transferees at work as we were walking in last week and found out she had lived there, and she spoke of catching 30-35 pound salmon 'til her arms ached. I can't imagine!

Please help if you can!

Thanks for the kind words. And Alaska is on my list of things to see as well.

We used to be able to catch salmon like that here too. Unfortunately we don't see big catches like that very often anymore.

If you do make it up to Alaska, make sure you stop by Prince Rupert, you've got a lot of friends here who would like to show you around.

I tried to talk Dottie into making that trip last summer and taking the ferry up with our Malibu. Instead we went back and saw her sisters, and I don't mind that, either!

Not sure about sleeping in the car in grizzly country, anyway...
