And share his joys with a genial glow;
With sympathies large enough to enfold
All men as brothers, is better than gold.
--- Abram Joseph Ryan
The above image is from one of the free Christmas cards that the National Wildlife Federation sends out. I have always loved polar bears and in high school I did a paper on them for my Environmental Studies class. On the back of the card it reads: "Until recently, polar bears have been one of nature's hardiest survivors. But because of global warming, scientists predict two-thirds of their global population could disappear within the next fifty years. You can make a difference for wildlife in the fight against global warming. Visit www.nwf.org/globalwarming and make you voice heard today."
We had a lovely time at dinner last night although I might have overdone a bit on the cocktails. :o) Happily, I don't have any real plans today so I can go at my own pace.
