Running Bear Aware --- is a great deterrent for those furry pests who don’t hear joggers running about the lake or in forested areas. This smaller version of a cow bell comes in all kinds of colors to match your running attire. Be sure to take a music player of some sort with you as the bell can get quite irritating after ten minutes or so. But what is irritating when it is your life at stake! Call now…only $5.99. (Running Bear Aware is not to be confused with Running Bare Wear…which is running nude and not recommended by doctors for those men and women well endowed.)
- Tracie Skarbo was motivated to write by her father, who was her biggest supporter. “He was always behind me, rallying me on with my writing. I would always see him with a book in hand. He gave me a great appreciation for the written word, and the power and responsibility that writers have to shape those who read their words. He also taught me to respect nature and to value the beauty within it; my reflections on my environment are just an extension of this.” Skarbo was raised on Vancouver Island and is working on her next two books.
