    Oh no!!!! She’s the reason I buy CL!

    Please thank her for all the pleasure she has given everyone – and the knowledge we’ve gained from her too. Wonderful writer, wonderful lady!

    I especially appreciated the facts about the true state of the Gulf of Mexico long before the oil spill care of BP et all added to the ecological disaster clearly already there…. One suspects the oil would eventually have regenerated the ‘dead patch the size of New Jersey’- that is if they hadn’t used chemicals to try to disperse it…

    Ten years after the oil spills into the sea that were as a direct result of the first Iraqi war, it has done exactly that there I gather – no one having bothered to waste money and resources to clean it up in that region!

    Thank you Carla so much for your intelligence and wisdom. Enjoy!
