I’ve been out of touch for a wee bit but, like Jack Nicholson in The Shining … I’m Baaaaaaack! Many thanks to Alex Vasquez, of Digisavvy fame, for getting my blog back up and running and looking good after some hiccups during the transfer from GoDaddy to Host Monster. Alex and Chris, a talented and creative California web development duo extraordinaire with Digisavvy; Neo Aplin, an adventurous and brilliant web design guru from Australia; and Jeremy Pigg, a wondrous web marketing genius in St. Louis are  helping me develop a fabulous website for Show Me Youth Media! Stay tuned. You’re going to love it!




Ninety percent of life on Earth lives in 34 hotspots: the world’s most biologically rich but most threatened places. To date, every hotspot has lost at least 70% of its original natural vegetation. Since January I've been living in Costa Rica, which is part of the Mesoamerica biodiversity hotspot, the third largest hotspot in the world. http://www.conservation.org

The animals of the planet are in desperate peril ... without free animal life I believe we will lose the spiritual equivalent of oxygen. ~ Alice Walker
