Jane Goodall: Nobel Prize for Peace

Jane Goodall is the most inspirational person I’ve ever met. I’ve had the distinct honor to interview her on several occasions, though it has been several years.

Pets Safe in Winter

Keeping pets safe in winter can be a challenge. Some dogs delight romping in the snow and appear as impervious to frigid temperatures as snow is to polar bears. Malamutes, Great Pyrenees, Huskies and many other large dogs seem friskier in weather that chills us to the bone. On the other paw, Toy Poodles and…
