Endangered Species And...

I try to avoid politics on the blog because it's something most of us feel strongly about, but for me endangered species, global change and environmental protection, even though I don't always agree with all laws, transcends political parties.



AND....
I'm going to be offline the rest of the week. Have a great one and leave the light on for me.

AND...

A BELATED Happy Birthday to our blogger pal Adam.

AND.....


Remembering one of America's greatest heroes, John McCain. A man that put country before party.

Sometimes it's just not possible to ignore what's going on in the world. Happy Birthday to Adam. Have a great week! Hugs, Valerie

How I wish that endangered species, global change and environmental protection, DID transcends political parties. It should. World-wide.
A happy birthday to Adam.
Enjoy your week away. We will keep the light on.

I have written my senators and congressmen to let them know how I feel about several of these bills that are in committee right now. It's just one more reason Earth Day was created. With this president, we take one step forward, and three steps back in the environmental arena.

Happy birthday Adam.

I will NEVER forget what our president said about McCain. For those who don't know, he said McCain was NOT a hero. A HERO would NOT have been captured!! This was said by the man people voted into office.

Agreed about issues like these transcending politics. Hope all goes well for you during your break from the 'net!

Protect or watch vanish.
Like his politics or not, McCain was an honorable man.
Enjoy your week off! I enjoyed mine.

Sharon said...

At a loss for the politically correct words ...
Happy Birthday to Adam.
God rest, Senator McCain.
I hope your week goes well!

Andrew said...

I will watch the clip tomorrow, but I can guess how it goes. McCain was a very odd politician, a Republican but a decent and sincere person. I heard he asked for Obama to read his obituary at his funeral.

Happy birthday to Adam.

CJ Kennedy said...

And the man who dodged the draft and never served in the military

CJ Kennedy said...

I'm going to skip any more political comments as news items about 45 make me puffy like an angry cat. Happy Birthday to Adam. Have a great week. We'll be waiting for you

Christine said...

Happy Birthday Adam! Have a great time off Sandra

Adam said...

I remember Trump totally ruined the Al Smith dinner in 2016 as he didn't even get the point of the comedic event, like how he has ruined everything else about this country.

JFM said...

Happy Birthday Adam!!!
I cannot talk about Trump...my blood pressure goes sky high at the thought of him!!!
RIP John McCain...you are a hero~

Jeanie said...

Happy Birthday to Adam. And farewell, John McCain -- what a remarkable man and life. I can only think of one person I would like to be an endangered species. Any guesses who?

Kicked my out , I work a lot of research and one would be amazed how many people work just to keep a species going.Sad to throw away. I have worked Monarch Migration for 25 year out of the U of KS.It will start soon.Prairie would not be here if we hadn't worked to save and repair.

But the poor guy had a bone spur. Choke choke. Hack hack.

Chrys Fey said...

Enjoy your time away.

RIP John McCain!

Susan Kane said...

John McCain set a standard of honor few leaders can or will meet.

Pat Hatt said...

Enjoy your week away. Ugg Trump is such a moron. The only animal that should be endangered is that thing on his head.

Birgit said...

Don’t get me started on that orange buffoon...I just get more and more angry especially when the animals are at risk and the only Defense they have is us! I don’t agree with the politics of John McCain but he was one courageous, and honourable man that had no problem standing up to bullies. He is one politician I respect

Hilary Melton-Butcher said...

Hi Sandra - have a good week ... I avoided various things on this post ... so I'll see you anon - cheers Hilary

Magic Love Crow said...

That is so sad about the animals. I pray that this doesn't change in your country. How horrible. Happy Birthday Adam! Have a great week off Sandra! Big Hugs and we will see you when you get back!

Romance Reader said...

Sad about the endangered. Happy birthday to Adam!

Lowcarb team member said...

Happy Birthday to Adam.

Enjoy your time off.

All the best Jan

Sandra Cox said...

That's for sure, Val.
Thanks. You too.
Hugs received and returned.

Sandra Cox said...

It should transcend indeed, EC. I'm afraid if global change isn't gotten under control soon, and the critters and environment aren't protected, it will be too late.
Thanks for leaving the light on. It guided me home.

Sandra Cox said...

Thanks so much, Yvonne;) Hope your week was a good one.

Sandra Cox said...

They sure do, Heather.
Break, except for some back issues, was good. Thanks:)

Sandra Cox said...

Yes and yes.
Glad you enjoyed your time away, my friend.

Sandra Cox said...

Thank you, Sharon.
Hope your week went well.

Sandra Cox said...

That's right, Andrew. He asked both Obama and Bush to speak. He was one of the few bipartisans left. He will leave a huge hole in our government and our lives.

Sandra Cox said...

Thanks for the well wishes to Adam, Jamie.

Sandra Cox said...

I do a lot of puffing too:)
Thanks for waiting for me:)

Sandra Cox said...

Thanks, Christine:)

Sandra Cox said...

Indeed.

Sandra Cox said...

I can relate on the blood pressure, Jan.
And completely agree about McCain.

Sandra Cox said...

Ha. Good one.

Sandra Cox said...

Kudos to you, Steve. Keep up the good work.
Yes, it is sad.

Sandra Cox said...

I hear ya on that.
Thanks, FSG:)

Sandra Cox said...

Ha!

Sandra Cox said...

RIP indeed. He's certainly earned it. Though, I imagine he's arguing with someone:)
Thanks, Chrys.

Sandra Cox said...

That's for sure, Susan.

Sandra Cox said...

Agree and agree.

Sandra Cox said...

Cheers, Hilary.

Sandra Cox said...

It is sad, isn't it?
Thanks, Stacy.
Hugs received and returned.

Sandra Cox said...

It is indeed.

Sandra Cox said...

Thanks, Jan:)
