SITE UNDER RE-CONSTRUCTION

SORRY BUT AM STILL WORKING ON THE SITE, YOU CAN STILL GET AROUND BUT ITS QUITE EASY TO GET LOST AT THE MOMENT!

I REALLY MUST TAKE A WORDPRESS TRAINING COURSE!

NORMAL SERVICE WILL BE RESUMED ASAP

The Merger

After several years of publishing two blog sites I have decided to change my campaign focus from working together to help animals, to using the written word  to meet that goal.

I am in the process of integrating my other site, The Chronicles of Banain into WTFAW to make a more integrated single site, as the story lines of the books promotes animal welfare, but in a more subtle way than some more direct types of campaigning.

It is also because  getting people/organisations to work together can be almost impossible in some instances, but getting people motivated through a good story line or poem can, in my experience often be very effective.

The new “merged” WTFAW will not only be a platform for my animal welfare stories and poems, but also for all aspiring writers and poets who would like there works published and honestly reviewed. It will also be a resource pool for animal welfare issues and a debating platform.

The title WTFAW will differ slightly to reflect the changes from Working Together For Animal Welfare  to  Writing To Further Animal Welfare.

Please be patient over the next few weeks as the “new” WTFAW emerges from the old sites and as always please provide feedback. 🙂

Donkeys Help In Ireland?

Hi all, I know its been a while since the last post, but this move to Ireland has been so time-consuming! Apart from settling in and looking after the animals that came from Spain with us, we have also taken on two donkeys who we are hoping will be able to be part of a donkey education/therapy project next year.

At the moment we are getting them used to interacting with us and the environment around them, as they were quite shy when we got them. The process involves taking them for walks, grooming, walking them in and out of challenging environments, and putting up with the seven cats who like to come with us wherever we go! I have to say they do take exception when the cats get to close and poor Gobbi has been close to stamping hooves a couple of times…but it doesn’t deter him!

The donkeys are not the best helpers though as I discovered when I was trying dig up a new yard area for them!JB helloclean up 2clean up 3cleanup3

To be fair both Lee (my Stepdaughter and donkey expert) and me think they will be perfect to go with us to schools and events to promote animal welfare next year.

With winter drawing in and the urgent work list reducing at last, I hope to be able to spend more time working on WTFAW and on this blog!

Will keep you all informed on progress

 I normally read fiction based on fact, I saw this authors blog site while I was looking for a new read. I started reading the taster on the blog site and was hooked straight away, it’s totally different to anything I’ve read before. Give it a go as I have you will be bloody amazed……

 I really enjoyed the story, it kept me gripped. The animal communication is a novel concept. Looking forward to discovering what happens in the next book.
