Free Lucy


Lucy’s Unlawful Captivity

Keeping Lucy captive without another elephant is against the government of Alberta’s standards for zoos. These laws clearly state that any animal living in a zoo should be in appropriate social groupings. Lucy has been alone for a few years now. Further, Alberta’s Animal Protection Act states, “No person shall cause or permit an animal of which the person is the owner or the person in charge to be or to continue to be in distress.”
There is little denying that leading a solitary existence has lead to Lucy’s great, prolonged distress. In fact, according to PETA, “Four renowned elephant experts have each unequivocally stated that Lucy is suffering and is deprived of any semblance of a normal life and that the conditions at the zoo causing Lucy’s illness and distress will only continue to exacerbate her health problems if she is not transferred to a sanctuary.”
Female elephants are known to spend most of their lives in close-knit family groups and as highly social animals, they need other elephants for their mental well-being. Lucy’s family bond was taken from her long ago and it’s almost certain she’ll never see her family again unless she is retired to a sanctuary with other elephants. She has the chance to love and be loved at that sanctuary.

Green things are good for you.

I have been eating so much asparagus, I am in danger of Asparagus Overdose.
I eat it steamed alone .. I love it on pasta .. I diced it up and mixed it with wild rice .. you can just dip it in mayonnaise and eat it by hand .. no one is looking, no one will judge. Try it.

I am not a fan of bags without straps but I made an exception for this one.
Anything but more snow ... a touch of green ivy is enough for me.
Soon ...

Idea Board

I am going to start posting photos that I will take from blogs and publications on the internet, of rooms , colors and objects for a sort of Idea Board here.
We can all obsess over the decorating of my new home ( please someone buy this house so I can get on with it !!)

There will probably not be any rhyme or reason to what I post and how it goes with the other posts .. it will be a Freethought Design Board ... yeah ! I like that !

So to start it off, I will use some of these photos that I like .. colors, style etc.

This is from the blog Victorian Realist .. the colors are wonderful. The chair and dog aren't bad either. That is the color of my kitten Minette ..she would look good sitting in that chair too !
This kitchen looks very much like the kitchen of the Little House ..
I would be happy with this.
then there is the matter of bedrooms.. two of which are under the eaves. how romantic is that ?
I saw a under the eaves bedroom in a magazine where the ceiling over the bed was papered with Toile.  This is definitely something I am considering.
