We, at the AVMC, wish all visitors to this blog a very peaceful, restful and loving Christmas time and a very healthy and fulfilling 2010. We also wish this for the animals that share your homes.

Let us also all remember that we are in a land of plenty and prosperity and there are places in the World (and even here in our home country), where that prosperity, comfort and safety has proved elusive.

If we all wish peace, sufficiency and safety for the World-at-Large, may be some of that positive energy will filter through to those less fortunate than ourselves.
