Mum likes reading, decorating, shopping with the girls, and Starbucks. She also feels funny writing in the 3rd person. Papa (also known as Sparky) is currently looking at me with a blank stare having asked him to add something about himself to the blog. (Now he wants to say something) The only thing he loves more in life than music and Coke is his wife and kids. (Awww...) :) Little Lotte is a genius on the computer and makes me fall over laughing every day with her quick wit. She loves computers and animals. Sweet Pea abandoned her family and moved to Phoenix for work and is now married as of 2/28/06. She is beautiful and smart and the most nurturing person I know. She gave me the greatest gift ever when she made me a grandmother. I am the proud Mum Mum to Andrew Christopher. There are no words to describe the joy of having a grandson!

Number of U.S. Hunters Steadily Declines, Worrying State Wildlife Agencies

(Associated Press) -- Hunters remain a powerful force in American society, as evidenced by the presidential candidates who routinely pay them homage, but their ranks are shrinking dramatically and wildlife agencies worry increasingly about the loss of sorely needed license-fee revenue.

New figures from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service show that the number of hunters 16 and older declined by 10 percent between 1996 and 2006 _ from 14 million to about 12.5 million. The drop was most acute in New England, the Rocky Mountains, and the Pacific states, which lost 400,000 hunters in that span.

I can't leave a comment on L's blog- boo. So I am spamming you instead. Tell her it's ok she scored kinda low on the "Are you dumb?" quiz cuz she still has college to attend. But afterwards, she better get in the 90s like we did or... something. Heh.

I guess money is always important news to some LOL! That's interesting though. I'm not into hunting for sport-that I don't get. But I can understand people who hunt to supplement their food. Can't say I'm saddened by the decline in hunters.
