I know I've been asking for lots of favors lately and I'm sorry, but this one was just too important not to ask.
Maybe you've never heard of Robert Lingenfelser, but he is a very important man! Animal Planet has selected Robert as one of 10 finalists from 7,000 nominees for the Animal Planet “Hero of the Year” contest.
He founded the Marine Mammal Conservancy in Key Largo. Without Robert and people like him, there would be no alternative to euthanasia for stranded and injured dolphins and whales. With the help of a team of volunteers who stand ready to help at a moment’s notice, Robert has led MMC to become one of the best marine mammal response organizations in the world. The research MMC provides contributes to scientists’ knowledge about marine mammal species that are not able to be studied on a regular basis. This information is vital to the survival of our oceans. Robert Lingenfelser’s leadership and selfless dedication make these contributions happen. He is a teacher and mentor to the staff and volunteers of MMC that he recruits and trains to make sure that MMC can respond to the needs of marine mammals today and long into the future.
On top of all the wonderful work the MMC does with the animals, they have also reached out to the community. they have come into the schools and talked to our students about their work and the important role animals play in our environment.
The main prize for winning this award is a donation of $10,000 to the animal welfare organization of the winner’s choice. Part of the decision on the winner of the award will be based on the results of People’s Choice voting.
Please go to this site and vote for Robert Lingenfelser . You can vote once a day until September 27.

I don't even want to tell you how many hours I spent playing the wii sport resort last night. LOL! I woke up this morning with a sore arm from all the sword fighting. I kicked orange croc guys butt at the sword fighting! Wake boarding----not so much. LOL!
We had so much rain over night that my poor street was almost flooded when I left this morning. If we had gotten a little more rain, maybe I could have stayed home and played on the wii some more. LOL!
Have I told you that I'm having a fairly stressful school year? Well, just to let you know how stressful it is one of my students gave me a jar of Ponds cold cream as a gift today. You know it's bad when a 5 year old boy feels the need to give you wrinkle cream! LOL! Then just to pour salt on my wounds the high school volunteers in my room had no idea what it was and I had to explain to them that it was for wrinkles and they laughed at me! The little boy stood there smiling from ear to ear saying, "Yep, I gived it to her." LOL!
