#43 - Remember Elephants




Hello everyone! Today is "Remember an Elephant Day". This day is about making people aware of the cruelty that occurs to circus animals, especially elephants. It is also about educating people about the fact that they should not go to circuses that use animals because that contributes to the cruelty and allows it to continue. JD is particularly concerned with this cause because he loves all of his fellow animals and it makes him sad to see them suffer. If you'd like to help, wear a string around your finger today and tell everyone who asks why you're wearing it about the cause. For more information and to sign the pledge that you won't support animals in circuses, click here.



On a happier note, last night's Rain concert was wonderful! I had much closer seats than I had the last time that I saw this Beatles tribute band, so it was amazing to see their costumes. They sound so much like the Fab Four that it truly amazes me and "Blackbird" almost makes me cry every time they play it. If they ever come to your area, I highly recommend seeing them. JD would like to see them, but since venues check bags, I can't smuggle him in! He did spend a lovely night with his grandparents playing and waiting for me to get home. He even stayed up late to wait for me. What a cutie!

I am glad to see that we are only one follower away from our next giveaway, so invite your friends and get ready to enter our contest for the Tumbler toy :]

Hi Jessica and JD!

This is such an important cause.
I'm glad you wrote about it. I hope more people spread the word about
how cruel the circus is towards
the animals who are forced
to perform.

Daisy and I are glad you had fun
at the Rain concert!

We hope you have a great weekend!
