Working to Change the World


I am creating this new award to recognize those bloggers at WordPress who are working to make a difference in the world.

Recipients of the Working to Change the World Award work hard and sincerely to make the world a better place, using their compassion, love, and understanding, and promoting open minds, free communication of ideas and, above all, peace.

Field of Flowers Award

The wonderful and generous Dr. Rex has nominated for this award, created by Patty from,  In Patty’s words:

~~The Field of Flowers Award~~

Note: I have created this new award because there are some people who I would give a field full of flowers if I could.

Not just a couple of flowers… No, a field full of them.

Because they can use it, to thank someone or because they simply deserve it. Flowers give color, flowers say ‘I Care’ and flowers are nature’s gift to us.

You give them to show someone you care or to celebrate something. Just spreading a little love and care.


  • Thank the blogger who nominated you
  • Place the award on your blog
  • Nominate 7 other bloggers and write a little something about why you would give these bloggers A Field Of Flowers
  • Let your nominees know that you nominated them

Of course you don’t have to accept an award, just know you’re appreciated!

My reason for nominating the bloggers listed below is simple:  they all brighten my life with their words, and I wish I could brighten their lives with a Field of Flowers in return.

This little is very cute

Mungai and the Goa Constrictor


“If one way be better than another, that you may be sure is Nature’s way”
Aristotle – Nichomachean Ethics

One significant fact to cherish about the numbat is its relationship to the now extinct thylacine [1] or Tasmanian tigerThey were cousins. You may remember “Benjamin” the very last thylacine, who died in Hobart Zoo in 1936 in deeply sad circumstances. Numbat  Ironically, the numbat is the only living member of its own family of marsupials – the Myrmecobiidae family .   So it will be quite something if Australia manages to hang on to it.   And… they are trying.  A lot of dedicated people are doing all they can to keep the numbat alive, and, in general, it is held in quite high regard.  In 1973, the then Governor of Western Australia, His Excellency Major General Sir Douglas Anthony Kendrew, declared and authorised this unique and rapidly declining species as…
