    Dear All:

    I'm a new comer of having tortoise as pet. My wife and I just love to having them around and take care of them. We learned so much from this website. We like to share one of our precious Leopard tortoise, "Little Jade" is his name which is due to the color of his carapace. He been trained and tamed of my wife, she can have him lay in her lap and pat his head, scratch his lags. he will not retreat back to his shell or fight. We love him so much and try to provide a good home and health living style for him. May God bless us all. Thank you for looking!! IMG_1353 - Copy.JPG IMG_1518.JPG IMG_1352.JPG photo-8.JPG

    Curious, this is what I found out about white jade. Jade is considered lucky is some parts of the world ...

    White or Cream Jade: Helps one direct their energy to its most advantageous outlet. Helps filter out distraction and allows you to envision the best result of a given situation. Also suggested for the eyes. (No duh, look how eye candy that little tortoise is).

    ... soooooo ... if y'all will excuse me now, I am running, not walking, directing my energy to get a lottery ticket! Not stopping anywhere along the way. My eyes are wide open and I see a lottery win so I can someday have a tortoise education place. Thank you Little Jade! : )

    I'm grateful for your reply. We never know our Little Jade have such power. By your reply, you already a winner in my eye. So let me know when your Tortoise educational park opens, we will take Little Jade for a visit, he may like so much of your park and don't want to leave, so he may just stay to bring you more luck and success.

    Here are few more of our Little Jade and his friend in a afternoon sun bath.

    Okay sweet Little Jade, and fellow tortoise peeps, I did it. Mega Millions is up to 400M. I asked the universe to help us get a tortoise education place out here by Disneyland. Sooooo, come Friday the 13th, we.shall.see. And note: I pretty much never play the lottery. I was inspired by Little Jade and just went with it. Why not, right? One never knows ...
