A Break In The Action . . .

When not working with employers to make their places of work better places to work, to maintain their non-union status, I become the "#1 Puppy Helper" at SAMM (Save A Mexican Mutt.) Indeed, we just finished a round trip from San Miguel de Allende to Albuquerque, New Mexico, with six dogs going to their forever homes. I get a little testy on a 26 hour drive and sometimes wonder why go to the effort.

And then, just when I need it most, comes a story like this from a family who has changed lives and whose lives have been changed. It reminds of the importance of Kelly's work on behalf of SAMM and her tireless efforts on behalf of those who cannot speak for themselves.

Read the story of "Valerie" at

Moral of the story?
Take a break from time to time and find something more important to do than make a buck. It helps put life into perspective.

As Kelly and Jim have quietly shown, we may not be able to change the world, but we can change the world around us.

No matter how small our efforts, the ripple effects change the universe in ways beyond our comprehension.
