Hello my friends!!
I have so much to share that I decided to break it down into a couple of updates to keep it easy to follow. First I would like to thank you all for your wonderful emails and cards since my return from Chengdu in February. It really does warm the heart and inspire the muses to hear from you all!!!!!
Following the earthquake on May 12 in China (on my 50th birthday no less) I have been completely immersed in building a new website and forum so I can get all my ducks in a row to help out the Panda base and Wolong pandas even more. I plan a trip back to the region as soon as time will allow.

I have spent the past month giving PROJECT PANDA a new home in the form or a FORUM..the panda projects have seriously outgrown their den at GRAFFITI GOSSIP !!
If you remember my call for 9 others to share a panda cub adoption..well I got over 130 offers but could only handle adopting 4 pandas for the time being. Not to worry…more shared adoptions will be coming soon!!

I’m so excited to meet all my panda friends and Tai Shan for the first time I can hardly stand it!!!
