US Total Solar Eclipse - Aug. 21 2017!


It hasn't happened in a century but what goes around comes around! :)

To celebrate the US Aug. 21, 2017 Total Solar Eclipse many festivals are happening in the towns along the moon's path. Do read the details in the link in the previous sentence for further information.

Plus, the US postal service created a groovy 2017 Total Solar Eclipse stamp that is triggered by heat to change the image on its front. Very creative!

If you look at the eclipse, remember to wear specially issued sunglasses when you look towards the sun. Have a fun day!

One Man's Trash... Someone Else's Treasure? Let's Hope So!


Wow - so I finally saw the movie Wall-E and what a creative effort! 

Not only that, those who wrote the script filled it with lots of topics for the average human to consider.

Stuff, stuff, stuff - when will we make too much? What about all those plastic bags, glass bottles, newspapers, etc. that should be recycled?! And of the items that are not recyclable, are they available for others to re-use them?  Where is all our trash going to be placed if it is not able to be destroyed or re-used in a different way?  

Love - Loving your neighbors matters... have you met them? How are you able to support and help each other in times of need? Do you practice patience and make the effort to try and understand what others might be going through?

Our planet Earth - are we making good decisions on how to care for it? Or as in this movie Wall-E, will we allow it to become uninhabitable for a period of time due to our Stuff creating unbreathable air, lack of space and plant suffering/degradation? 

Many themes to consider.
What are we each able to do in our own community to make our world a better place to live? 

Think about it! :)
