Good morning, everyone! Very good mood this morning.
Most I've read have been animals that just stayed hidden from us, and I love that.

I'm guessing the farther one lives from the equator, the more help one would get from the SAD lights.
Never for money on the writing. A few times in my life, I've tried to take things I like and turn them into income for myself, only to end up hating the activity that I once loved. I'm therefore reluctant to try writing for cash. I have thought of doing a blog called something like "The Bitch of the City," where I just rant about what's wrong with wherever I'm living. haha

It feeds into that whole, "if we don't understand it, let's exploit or kill it" thing.
I used to get the running around guys from free emoticon sites. If you want to use any that I post, just right-click and save to your computer, then upload to whichever photo hosting site you use (photobucket is good). The hosting site will then give you the url to post so they show up on message boards, etc.

I love AZ. I've visited a few times. I don't think I could handle the heat as a resident, but the desert, the sights, and the food are great!
Even when it was supposedly for farming, I'm sure that real farmers don't give a rat's patootey what the clocks say. They do their work when the animals and crops dictate.
