Did You Know

Did you know that plants and trees don't need oxygen so they expel it for us to use? They do this through photosynthesis when they take in energy from the sun and convert it to chemical energy. Plants are great.


AND...
Happy Birthday to my lovely, ninety-one year old aunt. You wear it well.

  1. And that is why the burning of the Amazon rain forest is such a travesty. Even 3% more and it could mean we will no longer be able to recover. If this happens we will go the way of the dinosaurs.

    1. It is just so frustrating. The entire world is going to suffer and time is our enemy.

  8. It's good that they do that. Our ecosystem was originally well balanced, until mankind started altering things (animals going extinct because of us killing them, etc.).

    1. They sure are, aren't they, Christine? The trees also suck up and store the carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, as you probably already know.

  16. I thank plants daily and try not to eat too many vegetables and fruits. My way of honoring them.

    1. Since I don't eat meat and you don't eat veggies and fruits, we'd be in trouble if we blended our eating habits:)

  17. I just learned tonight that Trump has given away our logging rights (to keep the forest pristine) in Alaska. Now the loggers can deforest Alaska, like the Brazilian president is burning the Amazon. The mighty dollar is far greater than the eco-system in Trump's world.
