        All, just afraid of snakes….the animal group is part of a new site in creating and they want me to blog about animal stories. Elephants,endangered species,dogs, you name it…maybe I,will be calling on you for help in the future (with blogging material)if you were willing or interested. If so, shoot me an email to and when it is closer to date, will have more clear info. It will be called befold and it will be under the umbrella of project positive change….Google The project (not befold) and you will see all the exciting things were doing😊
