This week I discussed the Keystone Pipeline that was vetoed by President Obama
The Verdict of the Chris Kyle murder case, where Routh was sentenced to life in prison without parole, and was determined by experts to never even have PTSD. The man had never even seen combat during his service as a Marine, and often used the "PTSD card" as an excuse after he got himself into trouble for being intoxicated.
The death of Leonard Nimoy, and recent celebrity deaths
Annoying social media trends, and relationships
Arguably the biggest celebrity in the llama world is Rojo the Llama, a charming therapy animal from Mtn Peaks Therapy Llamas & Alpacas that has completed over 800 therapy visits throughout the Portland, OR and Vancouver, WA area since being certified 7 years ago. Attendees of Autism Empowerment's Easter Egg Hunt for Acceptance of All Abilities in April 2014 lined up for the chance to share kisses, carrots and hugs.
According to Rojo's Facebook page, "I've always been a little weird because I LOVE being around people! That's why my owners decided to get me certified in 2007 through the DoveLewis Animal-Assisted Therapy Program in Portland, OR. My roommate, Smokey also passed his certification with flying colors, and now we also have a rescued llama named Beni, and three very sweet alpacas named Napoleon, Andre, and Jean-Pierre at our place that also do therapy visitation. We leave the farm at least 3 - 5 times every week to visit kids with special needs and old folks in retirement homes. We also get to do lots of fun parties and PR events throughout the year down in the "big city" of Portland - I love it when everybody freaks out when they see us walking around downtown!"
Although Rojo has figured out how to express himself in llama talk and through Facebook, he hasn't quite mastered the art of the radio interview. Today we are delighted to welcome Lori Gregory, President of Mtn Peaks Therapy Llamas & Alpacas to share the history behind their nonprofit organization, anecdotes about their activities and insight regarding what makes therapy animals like Rojo, Smokey, Napoleon and friends so appealing to children and senior citizens.

Listen to INTERVIEW with Dr. M. Jones from Kansas State University Veterinary Hospital (well known camelid center). There are a lot of misconceptions about nutrition, fatty liver disease and fleece quality in camelids. After much peer reviewed scientific paper research and discussion with experts such as Dr. Jones, we will try and break down this information in a concise way. If you know anyone with type 2 diabetes, this information is relevant because alpacas and llamas have naturally high blood glucose levels and insulin resistance similar to humans with Type 2 diabetes.
This will expand your knowledge and unlearn what you thought you knew!
“...I enjoy nature too much.... I know the tree feels it when the wind blows through it. It probably goes, “Ohhhh, this is wonderful.” And that´s how I feel when I´m singing some songs. It´s wonderful.”
"Plus, I’m crazy for birds and animals and puppies. And I love exotic things. I’ve had llamas, peacocks, a rhea, which is the second largest bird in the world, a macaw, which is the largest parrot from South America, pheasants, racoons, chickens….everything. Now, I’m gonna get a faun. And a flamingo.... I want a chimpanzee – they’re so sweet. Oh, I have such a good time with the animals. I have a wonderful relationship with animals, they really understand me.... I’d like to get into the whole veterinarian thing and learn the behaviour of animals. Dogs may see in black and white. Dogs might even see the wind. And what about the king cobra – what makes him come up when they play that pipe?"

Join us as we delve into the interesting, offbeat, world of raising llamas. Mark MacNamara, co-owner and proprieter of Moonlight Llamas discusses raising llamas and the uses of llama fiber.
Moonlight Llamas is a small llama farm dedicated to producing and promoting llama fiber products
Located in Montpelier, Vermont currently with 7 wonderful llamas who provide fiber for a variety of specialty
items. Baby booties, broad brim felt hats, earrings, felt soaps, fiber planters, juggle balls and more as well
as excellent manure for our gardens. The products are sold at the Capital City Farmer's Market and several
fall and holiday craft shows. Jan has been raising llamas for almost 20 years and Mark joined her in 2003.
Jan shears the llamas, processes the fiber and makes the products while Mark has taken over the day to day care of the llamas.
