Clickable ideas to get folks to visit your Website daily!

Get folks to visit your favorite Website(s) daily!

brainstorm about getting folks to visit your favorite Website(s) daily!   Maybe a PAWS– &/or Forging Futures-related &/or HCUC &/or Oktoberfest Kraut Run &n/or Women2Women &/or HC Crisis Council Websites’ brainstorm for your, Mike’s & others’ consideration:  How about having a “daily click” kind of way to draw folks to PAWS’ & others’ Website?  — that simultaneously teaches me something &/or gives me opportunities to donate.  Here are Websites I’ve faithfully clicked daily for decades (I assume they’re legitimate).  The Websites are conveniently on the front page of my beloved blog www.AliceWhite.WordPress.com:

While you are providing your service to people & places wherever you work, worship, volunteer, learn, play &/or thrive, please remember to

Click daily to support worthy causes:  www.FreeKibble.com  Automatically donate pet food whenever you take informative quizzes on both, color-coded dog & cat portals.  www.AnimalRescueSite.com  Pay for food & care for some of the 8M companion animals relinquished to US shelters annually.  www.TheHungerSite.com  100% of fees from Web site sponsorships goes to hunger  relief:  1.1 cups of food to the hungry every time you click.  Another way to donate food:  www.FreeRice.com;     www.TheLiteracySite.com  Click to provide books for children:  1+M free books since 2004.  Choose even more causes you believe in:  www.ClickToGive.com  (e.g., animal care, feed the poor, stop child abuse, shelter homeless, fight cancer:  all monies created by your clicking is sent directly from the advertising network to the listed charity.  Give to causes when you shop:  www.GreaterGood.org  Support causes you care about at no cost to you.   www.GiftsThatGiveMore.com Provides charity royalty of 5% to 30% paid on every item purchased from online stores with 4,500+ products.   www.GlobalGirlFriend.com:  Purchase eco-friendly apparel & accessories hand-made by women & communities in need).

Hmmm, maybe our Rotary club &/or district could create their own daily-clickable Websites:  e.g., Rotarians,  click daily for almost-instant e-training:  www.Rotary.org/en/Members/Training/ForAllRotarians & the deep value of transcendent purpose:  www.youtube.com/watch?v=u6XAPnuFjJc&sns=em & gain inspiration from an unstoppable, successful farmer who automatically overcomes physical challenges:  https://www.youtube.com/embed/H9S3n_tILKo   The Rotary Foundation had a limited-time-only, clickable photo of Arch Klumph, founded of TRF – where I could click a little square of his Website photo & thereby donate a minimum of $100 to TRF while simultaneously making the donation in honor / in memory of someone:  what fun!

And / or model a clickable Website that I spoke about during my Rotary Talk About remarks last Thur.:  via the Weblink, I could easily donate to the cause, donate 5% more to cover operating costs, donate 10% more to support the Website; e-tell my honoree (FBG Morning Rotary Pres. Sarah) that I’d donated in her honor.  It was so easy that I just kept-a-clicking & donating:  exhilarating (helping a great cause & seeing how the ease of the process kept me donating more & more).

How to keep cats from digging in your flower beds

How to keep cats from digging in your flower beds. I’ve tried the Cat Scat & the repellants, & they work, but you have to keep adding these for a few months until the cats “get the point.” I have also tried planting catnip away from my beds, & this has worked well. I have not tried the coffee grounds, but what a great & easy idea:  http://fixnation.org/2014/03/common-complaints-and-solutions-cats-digging-in-gardens-and-flower-beds/

The more we can help our neighbors learn to appreciate the cats, the better—so we need to be able to explain the benefits that community cats provide (they tend to keep other cats &d vermin away, they are excellent at keeping rodents & bugs away from your house, they are entertaining to watch, etc.) while also dealing with the common complaints like flower beds.

Dealing with grief: https://www.neptunesociety.com/resources/the-guide-to-pet-bereavement-what-to-expect-after-the-loss-of-a-loved-one & more

As many years as I’ve been in the health field, it’s never been easy to lose someone, whether personally or professionally. Although it’s something many people avoid talking about, death & the grief that follows it are unavoidable.

I was reminded of this recently after losing a lifelong friend who lost her battle with cancer. We knew some months ago that we would lose her… but it didn’t make it any easier. My grief is something I’m still dealing with (& know I will continue to deal with). I’ve been doing a lot of research for Public Health Corps on this topic lately in an effort to help any of our readers who may be going through a similar difficult time, & I thought I would share some of my findings with you, as well.

Two, loving, 5-yr.-old Labrador Retriever siblings in Austin, TX, need loving home together: 512-239-5011 or Andrea Morrow@tTCEQ.Texas.Gov

My former boss died last week leaving his two dogs behind. His widow is not in a position to give them the attention and exercise they need. They are neutered and their shots are up-to-date. If someone is interested, they can e-mail me their contact information and I’ll pass it along to her.   Here are the particulars:

Marty, black lab-mix…   and Coco, his sister, a yellow lab-mix.    They are five years-old and need to stay together in a new loving home.

Marty is very protective of his sister.  He pines for her if she is away.  He is very sensitive and loving. Very Zen.  At times he will choose affection over a treat (not always, but often). A bit shy at the start, but he’s a sweetie at heart. Since he was a puppy, he’d grab his food bowl by the teeth and move it to a more private area.  He still does that on occasion.

Coco is always ready to play and eat. She’s a bit territorial, and skittish at first, but can be won over with a treat. As a puppy, when she first saw grass on a sunny day, she sat like a little sphinx in the sunshine. She still does. They are both in excellent health, but I don’t think one would survive without the other.

If you, or someone you know,  is interested in giving them a great home, with love and fun and good care….PLEASE contact me. We will not send them to a shelter.

Thanks!   Andrea Morrow   TCEQ Media Relations Manager   512-239-5011 phone

Death is nothing at All by Henry Scott-Holland: https://www.familyfriendpoems.com/poem/death-is-nothing-at-all-by-henry-scott-holland

through Sherril.Skibell@TTU.edu at Dr. Margaret “Peggy” Sheffield Lutherer’s memorial service & read by Alice at memorial service of Dr. John Aure Buesseler at the 46-yr.-old CEO Roundtable:  This poem is often read at funerals. The author, Henry Scott-Holland (1847-1918), a priest at St. Paul’s Cathedral of London, did not intend it as a poem, it was actually delivered as part of a sermon in 1910. The sermon, titled, “Death, the King of Terrors” was preached while the body of King Edward VII was lying in state at Westminster.  READ  COMPLETE STORY  PRINT

Death Is Nothing At All by Henry Scott-Holland More Henry Scott-Holland  

https://www.familyfriendpoems.com/poem/death-is-nothing-at-all-by-henry-scott-holland

Death is nothing at all.
It does not count.
I have only slipped away into the next room.
Nothing has happened.

Everything remains exactly as it was.
I am I, and you are you,
and the old life that we lived so fondly together is untouched, unchanged.
Whatever we were to each other, that we are still.

Call me by the old familiar name.
Speak of me in the easy way which you always used.
Put no difference into your tone.
Wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow.

Laugh as we always laughed at the little jokes that we enjoyed together.
Play, smile, think of me, pray for me.
Let my name be ever the household word that it always was.
Let it be spoken without an effort, without the ghost of a shadow upon it.

Life means all that it ever meant.
It is the same as it ever was.
There is absolute and unbroken continuity.
What is this death but a negligible accident?

Why should I be out of mind because I am out of sight?
I am but waiting for you, for an interval,
somewhere very near,
just round the corner.

All is well.
Nothing is hurt; nothing is lost.
One brief moment and all will be as it was before.
How we shall laugh at the trouble of parting when we meet again!

PAWS:  Pedernales Animal Welfare Society

Saving Animal Lives Through Low-cost Spay / Neuter

Pedernales Animal Welfare Society (PAWS) invites all dog and cat lovers and the animal-welfare community at large to a come-and-go Open House on Tuesday, April 4, 2017 from 5:00 to 7:00 pm at the Hill Country University Center, 2818 US Highway 290 East in Fredericksburg.  Celebrate the amazing accomplishments of PAWS’ first 13 years and find out how you can contribute your time, talent and treasure to leverage PAWS’ life-saving impact into the future.

Be a champion in helping us eliminate the millions of unwanted kittens and puppies that can be produced in only ten years. Together we can significantly reduce the number of homeless animals – endangered by living on the streets or vulnerable to predators or starvation in our rural areas.

The dream of a no-kill community starts with no birth.
