Blog of the Year 2012 Award……..


I am humbled to announce that I have been nominated for the “Blog of the Year 2012” by not one but three amazing women.


The following are my nominees for this award, in no particular order.  I have chosen these blogs because in the past year these women, have been my inspiration, my support, my sisters, my mother, and my friends.  These are the women whose writings and insights have helped me to navigate the turmoil and changes that came with the year 2012 and transformed 2012 from merely being a year of disappointment and hurt into healing and insight.






‘Blog of the Year 2012’ Award   and include these ‘rules’ in your post (please don’t alter the rules or the badges!)

The ‘rules’ for this award are simple:

1 Select the blog(s) you think deserve the ‘Blog of the Year 2012’ Award

2 Write a blog post and tell us about the blog(s) you have chosen – there’s no minimum or maximum number of blogs required – and ‘present’ them with their award.

3 Please include a link back to this page ‘Blog of the Year 2012’ Award   and include these ‘rules’ in your post (please don’t alter the rules or the badges!)

4 Let the blog(s) you have chosen know that you have given them this award and share the ‘rules’ with them

5 You can now also join our Facebook group – click ‘like’ on this page ‘Blog of the Year 2012’ Award Facebook group and then you can share your blog with an even wider audience

6 As a winner of the award – please add a link back to the blog that presented you with the award – and then proudly display the award on your blog and sidebar … and start collecting stars…

Yes – that’s right – there are stars to collect!

Unlike other awards which you can only add to your blog once – this award is different!

When you begin you will receive the ‘1 star’ award – and every time you are given the award by another blog – you can add another star!

There are a total of 6 stars to collect.

Which means that you can check out your favourite blogs – and even if they have already been given the award by someone else – you can still bestow it on them again and help them to reach the maximum 6 stars!



Hello friends, I am trying to get help for these two little puppies. They are living abandoned in a park. The rscue group needs funds to be able to get them to a shelter. Please donate any amount that you can and if you can re-blog on your sites that would be awesome as well.


A double post today.

First the dogs in City Park, Sarajevo. Jelena Paunović was notified as there are two puppies there in a very unsafe place.

They are living in a disused drain:

Sadly this is not at all uncommon: there are 11,000 + strays on the streets of Sarajevo. There are two adult dogs with them, one is certainly the mother.

More photographs of the puppies and the adult dogs in the slideshow below.

UPDATE November 27: I have been told that the mother dog is not the mother of these two puppies. That these two puppies have no mother….
UPDATE December 22: The two puppies were rescued and have found forever homes in Slovenia!

The costs for a puppy in pension are about 2 euros a day (about $2.60) depending where they go. An adult dog is 3-4 euros a day. Jelena has put a call out…

I had to reblog this post..quite amazing this man’s blog. This is must read for all my lady friends…..

...And The Home Of Depraved.You just got out of a messy, abusive relationship with a guy who doesn’t understand you, never took the time to service your needs, and was emotionally unavailable. You are working your way back into the dating world and you may not know it, but you may be in a very dangerous scenario.

You are prey. I am a predator. I know you are hurting and vulnerable. You probably haven’t been with a guy who is emotionally sensitive, vulnerable yet still strong, willing to listen and laugh and be everything you ever needed; and yet somehow allows you to feel safe.

I actually do a seminar for women on how an average looking guy can pick up women in their late 30′s and beyond using emotional and psychological manipulation. It’s scary when you realize how easily vulnerable people can be manipulated by a guy who is willing to pretend he…

Animals have souls………

All animals have feelings and souls and it is time that we stop eating them and abusing them.

In physics there is a law which states that for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.

In the world of spirit this is known as Karma.

Do you not see that there is a direct co-relation between the chaos and suffering that humans experience and the suffering that we cause to our fellow sentient beings on the planet?

Do you not realize that if you eat animals, abuse them, torture them in the name of science, abandon them at pounds, let them die or starve that you are a participant in this karmic cycle?

You do not believe me?  Well then, merely look out your window or peruse through the internet and what do you find?

Look at how humans suffer and look at how we cause suffering.  A law is a law it works whether or not you believe.

If you want to change the world, if you want to help humanity then simply start by being a compassionate care-taker of the animal kingdom……
