I love learning something new every day, and I love this 'meeting' new people. That little Feedjit gadget in the bottom right corner of the page is an awesome little tool. It never fails to amaze me that people in other states read this, much less in other countries and on other continents. And of course me being me, I have to look up every town, city and country that comes here, and read everyone's blogs who comments. So I do feel very connected. And meeting new people and learning new things are two of my favorite things to do, so I love it.
It makes the world much smaller, however. And again, me being me, when someone in MY world is hurting, I am hurting too. Empathy is a good thing in small doses, but ya'll? My heart is ACHING right now. Because I fear our friends in Oz are wondering if the Apocalypse has come. Some dipshit or dipshitz decided to test the old "play with fire and you'll pee the bed" theory and started wildfires in Australia that are only being fueled by high winds and record temperatures. Now there are over 165 dead, and it ain't over yet, folks.
I know that from what I've read what they need most right now are blood donations, so if you have some to spare, it won't cost you a cent. Unfortunately, they won't take MY stinkin' blood, so right now the best I have to offer are my fervent prayers and rain dances. If they won't take your stinkin' blood either (or even if they will) won't you join me in sending happy thoughts and positive vibes their way? If tears were raindrops, myne would have already put these fires OUT.
