Baby Announcement!



Speaking of visitors, I was wondering which of the several subjects I have rattling around in my head I was going to blog about today when Jane Doe made that decision an easy one! She brought her new twin fawns up to our living room window this morning to introduce them. :-) One skittered off before I could get outside with my camera, but the other one was a sweetly cooperative and adorably photogenic model. But don't take my word for it... check out the baby pictures!



And here's a cute one of Jane standing in the garage doorway...



In other news...

It's bloody hot here today; Mocha got his hooves trimmed this morning; today is my friend Ajit's birthday (Happy Birthday, Ajit!); BW returned to work after a week of vacation (waaaaa); and I'm about to head upstairs to make some creamy cilantro tofu dressing, a new recipe I found last night. Sounds wonderful and I've got some cilantro ready to harvest (along with lots of lettuce), so if it's as good as it sounds, I'll post it here! :-)

And two more items to pass along... Farm Sanctuary has rescued some "fois gras" ducks and needs contributions to help with their care. And Environmental Defense has a donor who's matching every dollar donated until midnight July 7th with two dollars of his own, so if you'd like to contribute to their work, now's a great time to do it and triple your donation! Links to both organizations can be found on my "Good Karma" list. Thankee!

And in case I don't have time to post again in the next couple of days, here's wishing you a safe and happy Fourth!

There is still strong in our society the belief
that animals and the natural world have value
only insofar as they can be converted into revenue.
That nature is a commodity.
And that the American dream is one of unlimited consumption.
There are many of us, on the other hand,
who believe that animals and the natural world
have value by virtue of being alive.
That Nature is a community to which we belong
and to which we owe our lives.
And that the deeper American dream is one of unlimited compassion.

~John Robbins, "The Food Revolution"
