Lots of events happening!

-- Quote of the Day --

I think I was meant for this since the beginning of my time… Through the years I just had this burning desire to do something to make a difference because there are so many out there and so many that need a second chance. …I started a few years ago writing stories… reaching the next generation of people who would give these animals a second chance… There I nothing else like it out there like a relationship with a dog or a horse or a cat or any other animal that you give a second chance to – they will be loyal and loving, unconditionally, for the rest of their lives. …so incredibly grateful that somebody loves them and cares that they are there… if people would just give a shelter animal a second chance, they are making such a difference and it is just incredible what they would get in return.

Hi all! I realize I was unable to post on the blog yesterday - occasionally my schedule is just to tight. I've been busily putting together some writing projects, finalizing other writing projects, dog training, compost turning and transplanting, and dealing with the house and yard chores that have gotten way too far behind. However, I did have some comments sent my way that said they've been browsing through the archived posts on the blog and really enjoying that... which is awesome! I do encourage the Brummet's Conscious Discussions Blog readers to take advantage of the time they have while visiting this site to scroll through the archives, you'll find a lot of resources, family activities, interesting eco-news and more.

Today's quote was taken from a Consious Discussions Talk Radio interview on March 24 this year regarding the world of writing and giving Abandoned Dogs & Horses the loving care they deserve and desire so very much. Dave and I have, as you know, adopted and rescued several animals in our nearly 20 years together. Currently we have two fur-kids that we adopted from the SPCA, both came from a difficult past and are totally renewed dogs now. Oh, they are far from perfect and we are still helping them along while constantly stimulating their minds so they don't get bored or filled with apathy. They are such a joy to us, they make us laugh and play, they take us for walks every day :) - they are our constant companions... and like family we argue at times, but we love each other deeply. :)

-- Authors Read --

Richard Risch was born to poor parents and struggled through much of his earlier existence with the common problems associated with urban life. After putting in 4 years of active duty with the U.S. Army, he earned his Electronic Engineering degree under the GI Bill along with several other academic achievements. Richard has always had a love affair of reading and books, which has opened him up to new possibilities and opportunities. However, he is hardly to be considered a typical “bookworm.”

The story he will be sharing today was built around real people and real events to not only give it fidelity, … but the ring of truth. Richard tells me that his novel, Beyond Mars – Crimson Fleet, is an action-packed thriller from cover to cover.
