Flock A Friend For Charity!!

Yes, that's not a flamingo, it's a toucan.

Heard about this one on Moonlady News ya'll http://

There is a flock of pink flamingos moving around North Texas while we sleep. You may wake up one morning this summer to discover you have been "flocked" for a great cause.

The National Autism Association of North Texas is having a summer fundraiser that allows anyone to call in and have a friend or neighbor"flocked" for any size donation! Four dozen pink yard flamingos will appear in their yard overnight along with a sign announcing they have been "flocked" for charity-there is a # for them to call to find out who flocked them where they can donate and also have the flock moved to another location if they want to join in the fun.

They of course do not have to donate, but I am surprised at the generosity of most people. To find out more on the non profit NAA-NT and autism please visit their website or contact 214-684- 8940 to have someone "Flocked" for charity!

Aspire To Inspire Before You Expire...:

I've been watching a lot of the videos on YouTube and listening to the music this group has put together and it's some really inspirational stuff. Check it out:

The Inspiration
Playing for Change is a multimedia movement created to inspire, connect, and bring peace to the world through music. The idea for this project arose from a common belief that music has the power to break down boundaries and overcome distances between people. No matter whether people come from different geographic, political, economic, spiritual or ideological backgrounds, music has the universal power to transcend and unite us as one human race. And with this truth firmly fixed in our minds, we set out to share it with the world.

Because I want to save these articles for future reference and because the vast overwhelming majority of my friends on Facebook will never see the articles I shared there I am posting a copy of the links here on my blog as well. I was aware of the shift toward social irrelevancy that Facebook decided to make when people with fan pages began noticing less interaction from their fans beginning in December 2010 but thank you Tom Anderson for really driving this home.

Pending "free trade" deals enslave workers and benefit corporations

Dear friend,Fair Trade Image

The picnics, parades, and fireworks celebrating our Independence Day have come and gone, and in reality, so has our independence. We are perhaps more enslaved now then we were when we were under the thumb of the British East India Company and the Hudson Bay Company in colonial days. 

Corporations have a long history of interference when it comes to governing.

The current trade deals with Korea, Panama, and Columbia are fast-tracking their way through Congress -- more examples of corporations running amok.

Since NAFTA passed, over 28 million jobs have been exported, yet we still have a growing trade deficit.  In an effort to "balance the trade deficit", even more Americans will see their jobs exported (which is fully supported by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce).

Why are we going down this road in a period of extended high unemployment?  Why are we going down this road at all?

Congress must hear our outrage over these pending deals, or they will pass them. Please call your senators and representatives and tell them:

  • You oppose the Korea, Panama and Columbia free trade deals.
  • The deals export American jobs to repressive low-wage countries. (No amount of trade assistance dollars will replace lost jobs.)
  • You stand on the side of American workers, not multinational corporations, and that you'll be sure to vote accordingly.

  • Find your senators' contact info here.
  • Find representative's contact info here.

We know that calling our Congress people won't be enough to take our democracy back -- we need a Constitutional Amendment to get corporations out of our elections and our government.

Large corporations are the barrier standing in the way of the democracy we deserve. Don't let them add another brick to that wall. Please make your calls today, and invite your like-minded friends and family-members to join Move to Amend for a systemic solution to corporate rule.

In solidarity with workers world-wide, 
The Move To Amend Team
