Valhalla's instant cure for the blues or having a bad day

To all Soldiers and other humans out there: if you're having a bad day or tough time but would much rather feel like a very confident rock star right at the top of the world on the best day ever, simply... 
make a no-salt chicken stew with rice and vegetables just for your dog (if you don't have a dog of your own, make it for your neighbor's dog). I absolutely guarantee that you *will* feel just like a rock star for the hours after the dog finally stops licking the empty bowl and turns to shower you with sheer gratitude while joyfully dancing around begging for "just a little more." 
Sadie looked exactly like an advertisement for Ultra-Bright toothpaste with stars in her eyes and an absolutely dazzling smile after her dinner tonight... I'm not a dog person per se, but now know that dogs really can smile!

The Valhalla Project needs your help and support
Just getting a project like Valhalla up and running has required a significant investment in time, money, and labor. With roughly $500,000 already invested over the last two years into the Valhalla Project for property acquisition, feeding and housing Soldier participants, infrastructure and facility improvements, animal purchases and feed, tools and building supplies, forest and pasture management expenses, and much much more, resources are running thin. We need YOUR help to keep Valhalla functioning efficiently - while at the same time expanding vitally important programs to assist post-9/11 combat Soldiers and war zone civilian workers to transition back into the civilian world. 

The Valhalla Project is a 501(c)3 nonprofit charity recognized by the IRS.
Nobody, including cadre or board members, draws a paycheck here, nor will they ever: we simply give everything we have to make Valhalla possible. 100% of your donation via Paypal will go directly to program expenses, period. If you'd prefer to instead directly donate four new tractor tire, a truckload of straw bales, a pallet of dimension lumber, or even a few dozen 10' sheets of forest green tin roofing, that would be absolutely wonderful - yet perhaps polking the "Donate" button above to contribute $10, $20, 
$50 or even more might be a little easier and more practical!
