Lucy signs Anti-Whaling Petition...
The Australian Government (after the election of the Rudd Labor
Government and 11 years of gross inaction by our version of the
Republicans) is going after the Japanese boats which are hunting whales
for "scientific purposes" (a load of horse poop).
Japan's whaling fleet set sail last month with plans to catch more than
1000 whales, including 50 humpbacks!
Meanwhile across the ditch to kiwi land, the following appeared in
today's The Dominion (Stuff.co.nz) :

PM backs anti-whaling campaign
The prime minister has swung behind a campaign to stop Japanese whaling,
as Australia prepares to send planes and an armed ship to monitor the
whaling fleet near Antarctica.
The Dominion Post began a campaign this week to halt the slaughter by
Japan of up to 50 threatened humpback whales, 50 endangered fin whales
and 935 minke whales.
By last night, more than 2100 people had signed an online petition
urging the Japanese Government "to abandon its abhorrent whaling
programme", including actress Lucy Lawless, singer Hollie Smith and
radio and television presenter Marcus Lush.

I'm not sure what kind of wood this is. I did'nt really have an easy time burning it, so I don't think I'll be using it again. This was something I picked up at Michaels earlier this year. I'm selling this for $5.00 ($5.00 for shipping). There is a little hanger on the back to put on a wall. Money orders or Paypal. Please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Update: This has been sold.

The clock is ticking for arctic foxes, penguins,caribous and many other majestic species.
Global warming is the most dangerous threat to the future of wildlife. But there is still time to help move forward essential energy legislation to fight global warming - and protect wildlife habitat!
The U.S. House and Senate passed great pieces of energy legislation this summer, filled with landmark energy and vehicle efficiency provisions designed to reduce global warming pollution. Now, can the two chambers bring their bills together into one final law?
Congress MUST pass an energy bill in 2007 to lay the groundwork for strong, comprehensive global warming legislation in 2008 and beyond. Spark your representatives to move this legislation to the finish line. Ask them to pass a bill that:
- Requires the use of more renewable electricity;
- Requires automobiles to go farther on a gallon of gas; and
- Protects our public lands and wildlife from oil and gas drilling.
Thirty five years ago, Congress put an end to aerial hunting. But Alaska is exploiting a loophole in federal law to resume the practice, not only for wolves, but bears as well. Hundreds of scientists have condemned what Alaska is doing, even as other states threaten to follow Alaska's lead. It's time to stop aerial hunting once and for all.
Rep. George Miller (CA) has introduced the Protect America's Wildlife (PAW) Act, legislation to close a federal loophole and curb Alaska's brutal aerial hunting program -- and prevent programs like it from spreading to places like the Greater Yellowstone region.
Please urge your Representative to sign on as a cosponsor to Rep. George Miller's PAW Act.

But millions of military patients and their families are already having trouble finding physicians.
Since TRICARE, the military insurance plan for active and retired military members and their families, is tied to Medicare, future doctor payment cuts will cause even greater harm to their health care quality.
Unless Congress acts now, future doctor payment cuts will deprive these heroes of the health care they need and deserve.

I've always thought if we had a bottle deposit for water and juice bottles here in Michigan like we do for pop and soda, there would'nt be as many water and juice bottles on the side of the roads, since those are what I see on the ground. I very rarely see a Coke or Pepsi bottle. Of course just not getting bottled water in the first place is an even better solution.
Howl at ya later!!

This is one of the first burnings I did, actually I think this was late 2006, I just never scanned it; I painted around the Hammer with brown acrylic paint, then sanded it to make it look a little more rustic.
Another Valkyrie, I'll be selling this one soon...
2007 on pine. The swords could have been a little better... if I can get another heart, I might make another one for sale.
That's all for now. Howl at ya later!!

"Humpback whales, bald eagles and wolves are recovering thanks to the Endangered Species Act. But as they prepare to leave office, the Bush Administration is planning one last gift for its industry allies: gutting the Endangered Species Act from top to bottom. If they succeed, over a thousand endangered species will be threatened with extinction without recourse. Recovery successes like the bald eagle and grizzly bear will be a thing of the past...."

From Defenders Of Wildlife:Each year, the state of Alaska permits private citizens to chase down and kill dozens of wolves using low-flying aircraft and high-powered rifles. Find out what you can do to stop this brutal and unnecessary killing. Go to http://www.SaveWolves.org/alaska.

These are wood medallions or pendants, I don't know what to call them. They're 2" (50.8 mm) wood disks (not sure of the type) with a hole drilled at the top, then strung on a black cord. The cord's about 12 inches, but it can be resized. I'll be making a few more of these for sale at my new eCrater store, I just have one right now, since I'm keeping the one on the left.

Oh speaking of Flickr, http://www.flickr.com/photos/debsden/ Howl at ya later!!!

2007 on pine plaque, roughly 5 x7
It's been pretty hot here lately so I have'nt been doing too much burning. I'm still trying to find a good way of varnishing pieces; right now I'm trying some stuff called Envirotex Lite Pour On High Gloss Finish. You have to mix it up and it's rather messy I think,
but a couple pieces I've used it on don't look too bad....

Did you know that grizzly bears, wolverines, lynx, woodland caribou, wolves, and thousands of plants and other wildlife species rely on undisturbed habitat in America's National Forests? Unfortunately, the Bush-Cheney Administration has enacted policies that favor road construction, logging and energy development, which are threatening the forest homes of these and other creatures.
I just sent a message to my Representative and Senators to help save roadless areas in our National Forests, and you can, too. Just take action online at:
The National Forest System encompasses 191 million acres of U.S. forest and grassland landscape. These American forest lands filter water, remove air pollution, provide recreational opportunities and harbor much of the nation's biological diversity.
A bipartisan group of more than 150 members of the House and Senate have joined together in support of the Roadless Area Conservation Act of 2007 (H.R. 2516 & S.1478), legislation to protect 58.5 million acres of wild national forest land.
Urge your lawmakers to support this important legislation. Take action online now at:
Thanks for helping!
