I am a strong believer in the simple fact is that what matters in this life is how we treat others. I think that's what living is all about. Not what I've done in my life but how I've treated others.

Congratulations everyone and thank you so much to all who donated prizes! A special thanks to Dave & Trish for the gift of this wonderful place called ATP!

Lovey dubby It's always a joy to see that adorable little guy of yours; he is so sweet and always brings a smile to my face. I had the audio up on my laptop and my husband said: "It sounds like a little cutie there" ... so I showed him the video and it made him smile too.

Well, I have a batch of cookies in the oven so I need to get them out before I have fried mint/chocolate chip cookies! Green Grin!

It does, indeed. Hilarious! I'm just glad it wasn't @Sharon calling my name - she has special dispensation to call me "FLIT-wit" Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing


The book I'm donating -- http://www.amazon.com/Bringing-Nature-Home-Wildlife-Expanded...

I'll order it from Amazon and have it drop-shipped to whichever winner chooses it. I was just telling Ann (redundant girl) that it has lots of up-close pics of bugs (more than I'm comfortable with, really), but it opened my eyes to the many different types of pollinators we have on this planet, not just bees/butterflies. And he has a couple indices full of native plants by region and host plants for lepidoptera, as well as a lovely chart that identifies how many lepidoptera species various trees hose (oaks win, with 534)
