Thai Pumpkin Soup
With a pumpkin and broth stash in your cabinet, you can make this soup faster than finding the number for delivery. Serves 4.
1 – 16 oz can pumpkin puree
2 Tbsp favorite curry paste (I use red or green)
2 ½ cups vegetable or chicken broth
Fresh chopped cilantro or mint (for garnish)
Mix all ingredients (except garnish) in saucepan until smooth. Simmer over medium heat for 8-10 minutes, serve and garnish. Turn this soup into a complete meal by adding some protein (chicken, shrimp, tofu) and frozen vegetable mix like broccoli, cauliflower and carrots!

As we previously mentioned, in Petchaburi, Thailand Thai officials have raided the Wildlife Friends Foundation Thailand (WFFT) and Elephant Nature Park (ENP).
The founders of these sanctuaries had recently spoken out against (possibly government sanctioned) elephant poaching.
One of these founders said:
"The situation is desperate. Armed Department of National Parks enforcement officers have forced their way onto our properties and have begun confiscating animals.
They claim we don’t have necessary paperwork but this is a lie. I’m horrified that innocent animals are now paying the price for my commitment to preventing illegal poaching.
The DNP personnel are not properly trained or prepared to move or manage the animals we have in our facility and many are likely to be injured or killed as a result of these unjust actions.
Further, the last time DNP confiscated animals they were never seen again."
The DNP (Department of National Parks) has not given out any plan as to what will be done with the animals or even any specific reason for the confiscation.
A nationally recognized animal trainer said:
"The actions of the Thai officials appear to be financially and politically motivated and have nothing to do with the safety, security or welfare of the animals housed at either facility."
This is sad and just plain wrong.
Someone needs to do something!

Thai authorities have saved over 750 dogs from an illegal smuggling operation that was trying to bring them to Vietnam.
In Vietnam, dog meat is considered a delicacy, which is absolutely disgusting.
A Thai navy patrol caught the smugglers on a river, during the transportation of the dogs.
One Thai man was arrested on several charges, mainly illegal transportation of animals.
The other smugglers escaped.
All the dogs are going to be sent to a shelter, where they definitely won't be eaten.
A happy ending for hundreds of doggies!!
