    I love the Poplar Springs Animal Sanctuary out in Poolesville, Md.   They rescue animals who otherwise would be destined for abuse and slaughter and give them a beautiful farm to live out their days.     

    It's a beautiful place.  I encourage you to visit.   Make sure you say hi to Norman, a former "veal calf" rescued from that suffering and allowed to grow to an enormous size.   He's a wonder of the world. 

    Joggers!

    This Sunday, May 17, is the Run For The Animals  5-k at  Wheaton Regional Park.   It's a fundraiser for Poplar Springs.  It costs $25 in advance or $28 at the door.   

    A good way to get in shape and do something nice at the same time for a sanctuary that deserves our praise and our thanks. 

    Thanking you in advance...
