Normally when we think of animal rescue we think of dogs and cats or cute furry woodland creatures. But some wonderfully enlightened people in Australia have gone far beyond that. I’ve written before about how I learned to like spiders, snakes and bats from Dr. Hopp in my life changing Biology 101 class. Last October in Australia a 12 inch (not a typo) huntsman spider (dinner plate size) was found in an old farm house.... Continue reading

My blogging buddy Jackie Bouchard has brought me into the 21st century but I’m not sure I totally like it here. I love books, by which I mean objects with hundreds of paper pages with words on them, bound together by a front and back cover. I don’t do Kindle and I’ve never had a book on disc. Until now. A while back I won Jackie’s book, Rescue Me, Maybe on 8 discs. I’ll be... Continue reading
