Save Tracey Aviery and Hogle zoo projects!!

Hey guys and gals :)
First I am so mad at myself for not working on Kyra's dress... i gotta move my tail to get it done...
Poor Glinda... she doesn't feel well.. but its looking like she's feeling better.

I talk about fat content in Cereal cause I was shocked to find out that it was the opposite of what I thought!! Frosted flakes are your friend!! LOL

I also talk about the Prop 1 and prop 2 here in Utah ..
here are the links to learn about the propositions.. there aren't really any opposition, its just up for a vote...
so here are links to more information on them

Prop 1 - Save the Aviary

Tracy Aviary is a jewel unlike almost anything in the nation – right here in Salt Lake County.

* One of only two public aviaries in the entire country
* The only public aviary west of the Mississippi
* The oldest and largest public aviary in the nation

But the Aviary has suffered from decades of under-investment. Despite the Aviary’s best efforts, roofs are leaking and infrastructure is crumbling. Due to these problems and uncertain future funding, the Aviary was denied accreditation from the Association of Zoos and Aquariums in 2006.

Salt Lake County residents have high standards for their public facilities. Proposition 1 will enable the Aviary to re-emerge as a world-class, AZA-accredited facility with a clear path for continued success.

Prop 2- Add to the zoo
The Salt Lake County Council has placed a $33 million bond on the ballot in November. This will cost the average household $0.39/month. The bond will help the Zoo build an Arctic Exhibit with animals like polar bears, seals, and wolves and an African Savanna that could make a home for giraffes, rhinos, and zebras among other things.

thanks so much again
dont forget to comment and all that Jive :)

Kisses and Huggs!!
