For My Fellow Californians Affected by the Fires

Hi, I don’t know how many of you on here are from CA & if there are any, if you’re in one of the affected areas. Those who aren’t from CA, many have friends and/or family who are or you have read about the fires. Do let me know you’re safe.

Ron (my husband) & I live about 10 miles south of Redwood Valley. That’s where one of the fires is located. Fortunately, we didn’t have to evacuate. We just saw & smelled the smoke. The air was thick with it. Some days the quality was in the dangerous zone.

For those that live around there, I’m sure you know, Coffey Park (Santa Rosa) was leveled. My aunt & uncle had lived on Espresso for 30+ years. My aunt passed a few years ago. My uncle recently moved to Monte Rio with his new wife. Which is good, because, he lost everything, but, thankfully not his life.

National Clear the Shelter Day–Aug 19, 2017

NBC and Telemundo owned stations are teaming up with hundreds of shelters across the country to host Clear the Shelters, a nationwide pet adoption drive on Saturday, August 19 to help find loving homes for animals in need. Over 50,000 pets found their forever homes in 2016. The shelter I volunteer at will be participating in this. As seen by the graphic below. What about ones in your area? Do they have something similar in other countries. Go to, Clear the Shelters, to learn more.
