Today the kids went to their first protest and I couldn’t be more proud! They were really into it and definitely understood that we were there to give a voice to animals who are not able to speak up for themselves. Bullying is the go-to word and problem of the… Read More

Holiday Gift Ideas…

I’m starting my holiday shopping and can’t help but think how frivolous it all is given the state of the world we live in. Most of the people on my list thankfully are doing pretty well and don’t need more ‘stuff’. A good alternative to giving more useless ‘stuff’ is… Read More

It’s true that you can buy ‘dolphin-safe’ tuna, however I’m pretty sure you can’t buy ‘tuna-safe’ tuna. “Entourage” star Adrian Grenier… Read More
