A Quickie - No. 1



As stated previously, this is my "turn-around" day where I try to reset my clock to vampire mode for an upcoming 4 nights of shifts long weekend. I took a long nap this afternoon, flanked by cats, and am now trying to keep myself awake by doing odd and end things in my office.

Nothing much else, so I won't bore you with any further musings today...

***************
In case you have been following the seal counts, I was wondering what had happened to the HSUS.org website since they hadn't done any updates, and I found out today that the seal hunt is being suspended for 7 days while memorials are held for drowned crew members of an overturned boat.

The larger hunt is looming just over the horizon, and I know the totals will start sky-rocketing then. Again, "Don't Buy While Seals Die." There's a nice letter to give to your grocery store manager if their store is still on the list buying Canadian Seafood on the HSUS website.

Our newspaper's have been running protest photos of the seal atrocities.  
I can't bear to think of how they suffer when they are clubbed.  Its a cruel world.
Hope you get your internal body clock sorted out for your 'vampire shift'.   Lol!
Sounds like you and your babies were snug as wee bugs...<smile>

Congratulations! (I'm sure by now your realize what for *winks*). Just wanted to let you know from one advocate against animal cruelty to another, I think it's wonderful what your doing putting the seals up front and center here. (Hugs) Indigo

I've been reading a book about the California Condor, and how back in the 80's there was a great struggle over how to save it from extinction. Dedicated people willing to do the field work and speak up about the importance of keeping animal species alive, while fighting for the preservation of the animals' habitat were a couple of factors in their survival. I don't know as much about the seals' situation, but will read your journal to find out more. bea
