"I'm selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best." - Marilyn Monroe


Born in Hamburg this German Hell Cat served two services in two countries for 19 years.
After 13 years in an ugly marriage and years worth of hard work/long hours, I did the first step to personal freedom, satisfaction and peace; I bought a beautiful small farm with plenty of opportunities to create.
After long search and hard work I finally seem to have found a position that is close to what I did before, provides challenges and entertainment and rewards with a great work environment and a great team. And with a little work, I might find time for more than work, college and house cleaning. grin

I love to write. I have been writing on the same story since 1982 and it now took almost gigantic proportions. But it is a private story, having allowed me to pour my heart into it.

These articles are things that mean something to me in one way or another. Some are things I want to educate people about; seeing the ugly things that too many of us Animal Rescuers see every day!

It's not really about the money, despite that having it wouldn't hurt!

It's about a passion I had for years!

    Horse Slaughter - The Conflict

    6 months ago

    It is estimated that between 130,000-150,000 horses, mules, donkeys and more end up in slaughter every year; to die a horrible death at the end of a painful road!

    There are over forty thousand varieties of rice, over a thousand varieties of potatoes and hundreds of varieties of pasta... ...AND, belief it or not, a breakfast food item used in a total different way!

    Having fun with your canine companion and be a little competitive can be a great thing. It can also be something that can bring you as a family closer together! But please do remember that any sport should be a 'Game',...

    Nam's Dog Soldiers

    Thousands of Dogs 'serve' 'their country' faithfully, but are we faithful to them? The faith of the Dogs of War in Vietnam was one of the most disgraceful things I ever heard!
