Dear Friends,

Kleopatra sent this petiton to me, and I forwarded it on to some of you individually, and decided to put this out for everyone else who hasn't seen it yet....

Can you believe that in just two years from now, a new president
will be inaugurated?

As candidates from all parties are throwing their hats in the
ring, NOW is the time to take action. Unless we have a leader
who is committed to solving our global warming crisis, the
consequences could be dire - and irreversible.

The stakes have never been higher, which is why the League of
Conservation Voters is launching their biggest campaign yet.
They need us.

Join me in helping to put 100,000 signatures on a petition
demanding for global warming solutions from U.S. presidential

Now, I'm off to continue planning my daughter's 4th birthday party. She is crazy about sharks! So, I'm making a "pin the fin on the shark" game, shark puppets, shark cake, shark chopsticks, etc!! Wish you all could join us for a bite!

Signed and done. Thank you so much for posting this. How fun! I absolutely love to have parties for my kiddos. We get to be kids all over again. Have fun.

I'm going to sign that petition now. Oh Kleo...I miss her.

I think it's so cool your daughter is crazy about sharks. I like sharks too. Especially great white sharks. Not to rain on anyone's parade but I was reading all about them and they are becoming extinct faster than any other animal. It's really sad. Factory fishing and pollution.

I just picked up Healthy at 100 from the library the other day also. How funny! I'm only a few chapters into it but already just as hooked as I was with Diet for a New America.

Those coconut muffins look right up my alley! I'm trying them for sure!

Thank you for signing the Heat Is On Petition.

Thank you and Kleo for spreading the word. You are really making a difference everywhere you can, and it's so inspiring, Vicki!

I hope the shark party was fun! Sounds very cute!

hi crystal! i just read an article in the newspaper about the dwindling number of sharks. how sad! they say 20% of the world's sharks are estimated to be threatened & are calling upon the public to give up its fear and start acting on the predator's behalf. Shark finning, the practice of killing sharks for their fins used in a popular Chinese soup, is considered to be among the biggest threats to sharks. perhaps i'm raising a young ambassador for the great white!? :o)

i'm excited that you are also reading "Healthy @ 100" I'm on chapter 2. "Diet for a New America" changed my life.

shark party photos oughta be up this week! thanks for signing the petition.

I didn't think I'd be able to sign the petition because I live in Canada, but I was able to! There is a drop down menu to change countries. I'm going to pass this on as well.
Can't wait to see what you do for your daughter's birthday. Sounds like it's going to be a blast!
