Note from the editor:
I have always been interested in science and nature, birds and bugs, plants and trees, conservation and preservation. This effort is a tribute to everything in nature.
I am concerned about what we are doing to our planet, including its plant and animal life. I think that not enough people take earth-involved issues seriously, particularly global warming.
I'm very much convinced that humans are a big part of the reason for global warming and all of us have a responsibility to reduce our carbon footprint as much as possible.
There are many activities that require very little energy expenditure except that which is produced by our own bodies. Getting out into nature and enjoying the little things like bird song, leaf crunching, listening to the wind in the trees -- these things are free, create no pollution and are good for the mind, body and spirit.
Join me in celebrating nature.
This website is a work-in-progress and probably always will be but here you will find articles about various aspects of nature--you'll learn about birds, bears, rodents, spiders, big cats, little cats, dogs and so much more.
Here you will find links to environmental conservation and preservation organizations as well as wildlife care and rescue entities.
Since I live at Lake Tahoe and am very much committed to promoting in addition to preserving its pristine beauty, you will find much to do about Tahoe in these pages.
Please support my efforts and other local merchants by checking out these other websites, some of which sell unique Lake Tahoe products:
Lake Tahoe scenic calendars, T-shirts, mugs, totes and woven blanket throws.
T-shirts, hoodies, woven throws, totes, mugs, baby--something for everyone at the on-line store for everything Tahoe.

We're adding new merchandise and affiliations regularly so be sure to visit us often.
Memory quilts are made from your old garments, your old baby clothes, the shirts or ties of a loved one who has passed on, or essentially anything made of fabric that you want to make into a cool blanket. These are not cheap but each one is crafted with impeccable care and incredible workmanship. I know, because I make it myself!
Masterful alterations and custom sewing. I've been sewing professionally for over 25 years and I will make sure whatever I'm working on is perfect, even if it takes more time than I can charge for.
If your pooch needs a place to stay while you're away, Toree's Dog Camp is it. My dogs have so much fun. We go on two long walks every day, without fail -- rain or shine or snow or sleet.
Take a walk on the dark side. This is a blog I started during my brief marriage to a con man. It was the lowest point in my life. I began writing about the experience to try to make sense of it to myself. Funny thing, I've attracted over 70,000 people and have hundreds of pages of correspondence from people who have gone through the exact same thing.
My intention is to write a book. Narcissism Personality Disorder is a severe mental condition that is impacting probably thousands of families in this country. I think I can help people. I have gained so much insight both from my experience and by learning about the experiences of others.
I have much to say on this subject.
And finally, another blog which I have not yet had time to develop, but I will:
Find tales of the down-trodden and stories about real-life heroes and hopefully eventually a forum for discussion on how to help those less fortunate.
