A little something new

Oh no!   Where did all the posts go?    Not to worry … they are still accessible at my ole blog .. which has now become the old post archive.

Why the archive?    That answer is simple!     The short answer is that after years are blogging, there are just too many posts for my current hosting package.    The old blog is the original, and free, site where I brought my google blog over to wordpress.   What better place to put the archived posts so that they are still available?

Does that mean I am not blogging anymore?   Of course not!   But … sometime in the next couple of days the Granny’s Journal URL  is going to split back off to its own site.   The blog will stay here, under this URL.

If there is any really big news afoot, it is that I have decided it is time to retire the homeless pet site.   Why?    Because the need is not there in the same way it was when I started up the homeless pet project.   At that time there simply was not a lot of easily accessible information about pet adoption.

People who were interested in pet adoption often had  no idea where to look.     What were they doing when they hit a brick wall?   What do you think?  They headed right off to Kijiji or a pet store or a back yard breeder of course!

My mission was to change that.   To make pet adoption more popular.   To ferret out every little rescue that I could so that people could make informed choices.

Now before the keyboards catch on fire, I am not tooting my own horn here.   I certainly wasn’t the only voice promoting pet adoption   But it is a satisfying thing to know that in my own small way I have helped.

I will be forever grateful to Danjo Web Hosting for so generously supplying the web hosting for the homeless pet project.    Without their awesome support, none of this would have been possible.

I wouldn’t be me if I still did not try to help a teeny little bit.   So, if you haven’t already noticed, this site will still have some of my favourite rescue listings and will feature a few little adoptables along the way.

Thank you .. as always .. for your interest in animals.    I will still be blogging … at least until the day comes when we have all the laws in place to make Nova Scotia the best province in the country for pet lovers.   Please do not forget that the animals cannot vote.   It is our job as tax paying voters to remind the politicians we elect that animal welfare issues are important to us all.

About this site

[dropshadowbox align=”none” effect=”lifted-both” width=”auto” height=”” background_color=”#ffffff” border_width=”1″ border_color=”#dddddd” ]This site has been around in one form or another since 1998.

When I first started muddling along with this project, I was much more capable in the kitchen and the garden than with my computer! Indeed, until that time I actually did not even know how to turn on a computer at all!

All the infomation here on this site is available for your personal use … with no strings or warranties attached!

Like ever so many other women, I wear more than one hat … often at the same time 🙂 I am an animal lover … a retired cook … a passionate gardener ….a practicing witch … and yes … a mother and a grandmother too!

If you are looking for a teacher please do not go looking online! While the net is a great place for pagans to connect and support each other, the journey itself is an important part of the process that cannot take place entirely in the virtual world! Sadly .. as with anything else in life … there are folks looking to simply make a fast buck without being able to offer ‘the real goods'[/dropshadowbox]

Sometimes folks stumble in here by accident while searching for free gardening information, recipes or any of the other useful bits that can be found here.

If this is not what you were expecting, you can do one of two things. Either you can rummage around for all the bits that really are bot free …. or you can stomp off in a huff. What you should not do is waste any time trying to show me the “error of my ways’. In the spirit of fair play, please be advised that all such missives are deleted unread.

Over the years, I have learned many valuable lessons because folks along the way were generous enough to share their enthusiasms and expertise. This site is simply my way of giving back. It is a hobby for me, and there are no tracking bots or ads or sales pitches to worry about 🙂

Blessed Be
