Winter is the season for new Teddy Bears

Winter is the season for new Teddy Bears because it is cold and often children are home with bad colds and the flu and what better gift could there be than a warm cuddly teddy bear to help them get well. Teddy Bears Care

Not just children love to receive a teddy bear. Seniors do too. I want to tell you a story of a senior dancing with a teddy bear. One evening we had some musicians come to our assisted living complex to entertain us and one tune was especially good for old-time dancing. One lady in her 90's got up and walked across the room and picked up our resident 3 foot plush teddy bear who always wore a hat and she started to dance with Mr. Teddy and she danced and smiled through the entire length of the instrumental piece of music. She received a big applause from everyone.

Teddy Bears can warm the heart of a senior too. There are a lot of lonely seniors in some of these senior homes. Give a teddy bear!

More plush animals.

I love hunting - hunting on the internet for information about animals

Hunting information about animals on the internet seems to occupy part of each day. No matter what I am doing I always end up looking up information about another animal from the urban coyote to the little known Snub-nosed Monkey from China.

I love hunting for information about animals that are endangered and what we can do to save them. What groups can I mention on my lenses to help people get involved. Save the Panda has some great ideas on how you can adopt a wild Panda or have a Save the Panda party.
What better way to raise compassionate, concerned young people than to involve children early in caring actions. The future of the panda is in the hands of the young.

Lets "hunt" together for ways to care for our planet and all life on it. It is our responsibility.
