Francesca at home in her Colorado wildlife garden

When dreams become a reality... A few weeks ago, Frances Mayes and I were introduced. She is the author of "Under the Tuscan Sun" and was working a book tour for her latest best seller, "Around the World in a Year." Frances Mayes' most profound words to me were, "I had to redefine in my mind where I called home in this world." She was referring to the journey to change homelands from the USA to Italy. Although this is what I yearn for most, it creates a deep emotional struggle within me too. When I heard her speak those words, I knew exactly what she meant. This summer will be the changes of my attitudes to where I call home.

  Dr. Goodrich's Mini Environmental Documentary
  "Through radio telemetry, we've learned a great deal about the needs of Siberian tigers," says WCS biologist John Goodrich who heads the Siberian Tiger Project. This powerful documentary, narrated by Francesca, shows school children from Littleton, Colorado asking questions of John. He reports live from the field in Terney, Russia with tiger tracking devices in hand, educating the viewer on his work and answering the school children's questions. This is a unique opportunity to see the front lines of the efforts to save the tigers. View the documentary, click here.
