Local news about the Tiger killed at the Naples Zoo

My jaws are tight so forgive me. Seems the man is in “fair” condition n law enforcement considering charges. I should think. Petitions for it are making its rounds. There was no tranquilizer available so the Deputy shot the Tiger to save the man’s life. The Tiger retreated but a drone showed he was not moving so a second shot to make sure. We’re supposed to be the higher intelligence on the scale but.. we gotta “manage” our endangered wildlife for their own good. BS. How did they survive since forever w/o our assistance? Put em in cages where their instincts and natural life is restricted for our viewing. There are many here very upset about this as am I. I fully realize there are other pressing important issues these days but so is this. I’m so not happy.

Will we ever know who the 100 Congresspeople

Are that were recruited to support the 1.6 insurrection? Just wondering if I should make a call to my Rep or not.

Trans Siberian Orchestra is on loud tonight

I am not a religious person but I saw this show a few years ago..they were to be here last year but..Covid. My friend from Ohio just told me she bought tickets for family for the show..could she adopt me?! Just something about O, Holy Night that gets me.. lots of religious training when I was young but nothing gets me like this one this time of year. It’s a great show..unlike any I’ve been to. I love it that they have local Union n university musicians wherever they go. To say I was awestruck is an understatement..if you can, treat yourself to an evening of great music. 🌲

The town that built back green

Is about Greensburg, Ks and how a EF5 tornado demolished the town in 2020. This tornado killed 13 people n injured 60+ others in a town of about 900. They vowed to build back but in a most progressive way in a very conservative town. I googled this information as there are many articles about what happened. How they approached the green idea n how some left but others are still there..thru trial n error but lessons learned well. Every time I hear of these tornadoes, I think about this town n how they decided to work w/ nature. Many great articles from the WaPo, National Geographic and others. Hope it’s uplifting as we try to comprehend this disaster.

Who could put out a PSA to kids

Who think their life has no meaning by showing the reality of kids who shot up schools n what their life is like in prison. Tell it like it is. There are resources before you absolutely have no meaning in life. No messing around b/c kids know fluff. Something has to be done before they take this act to destroy lives. Show the reality of what their actions do. Not just they’re going to jail but lives lost n shattered. Do you think it would do any good?

Got it this afternoon..can’t even tell as with my other two injections..I’m not gloating.. just saying I took advice and drank lots of water. Now.. Friday, I get lab work for my thyroid n I’m back on water after tonight as I’m treating myself to some wine after days of being prepared. A little of this n a little of that.. thanks Friends
