Sharing Earth Day

Photobucket 

Today is Earth Day and I thought I’d share some photos of wildflowers and such that James and I took this weekend. These tiny little wildflowers are all over the ground at State Parks here in California right now and even alongside the roads.

The deer show up anywhere they please, but you can always see them at particular golf courses near me. They love to eat that special grass they plant. The golf courses try to scare them off, but if you plant it, they will come.

I love California Poppies! With their bright orange color they are easy to spot in the woods or alongside highways and byways. I always welcome their bright orange color every Spring.

The wildflowers are so tiny and sweet. There were moths, butterflies and other bugs out for the day too. Pollinating the flowers and finding mates. They eat ravenously, especially after the cocoon stage. A tiny and perfect ecosystem.

Did you know, that if anything is wrong with an ecosystem that there are early signs? Mutations, sickness, young dying off and species acting differently because of illness or being displaced from their habitat. Depending on where this occurs the indicators can be felt differently but the results in the end are the same. Eventual death and annulation from our big blue planet.

Do you know any animal species that are endangered and disappearing? There is a website for “Earth’s Endangered Creatures.” It horrifies me to read it. Just the creatures in North America alone are staggering. How many are already extinct? Do yourself a favor, visit my links and become more aware.

We have to heal our wounded world. Today it’s more important then ever! The chaos that swirls around this quagmire has benefited only human beings. Even if it’s something small, anything we can do will surely help. Let’s do our part.

Who Knew Hula Hoops Came In Plaid?

The Photobucket Helix LED Hoop by Proton Labs not only comes in plaid, but 256 included preset patterns! They include free software to customize every pattern and they create millions of colors. It’s the Hula Hoop of the future, and I want one!

Save your money as you can order one just for you starting this month. Although I couldn’t find the price for it online as of yet my favorite morning show “Right This Minute” claims these mind blowing hoops run around $300 American dollars.

 

Alright, if you haven’t already check it out for yourselves.   Photobucket


 

 
 

 
I Just Love This!         
 
Can you imagine taking one of these to a music concert or a Rage? I vote for taking it outside tonight! My birthday is next month, any takers? Hee hee!
 
Tomorrow is Friday and time does fly! This week I’ve been enjoying the gorgeous Spring weather! Of course I’m driving my Miata to our lovely state parks and refreshing my soul with nature. Just to sit and listen to the sounds! I hope you are doing some of the same and have a nice evening!

The Facts Of Chocolate

407776_249408531802808_240492956027699_600398_1102734813_n

A guy found a bottle and a genie granted him three wishes.
"Well" he said; "I'm broke and life sucks.
I'd like to be really stinking rich."
***POOF****
There was a million bucks.

"The best car in the World" he said;
"Is what I'd really adore,
But it costs $1.7 million.”
***POOF****
There was a Bugatti Veyron 16.4.

Finally he said; "I'm a nerdy geek
I'm not one of those hunky jocks
I'd like to be irresistible to all women.”
***POOF****
He was turned into an automatically, refilling, giant chocolate box.
(Which unfortunately has no need for money and a car but on the other hand, will get slobbered over by all women.)

ADMINISTER
CHOCOLATE IMMEDIATELY.


The 12-step chocoholics program: Never be more than 12 steps from chocolate!


Chocolate causes certain endocrine glands to secrete Hormones that affect your feelings and behavior by making you happy. Therefore, it counteracts depression, in turn reducing the stress of depression. Your stress-free life helps you maintain a youthful disposition, both physically and mentally. So, eat lots of chocolate!
Elaine Sherman
Book of Divine Indulgences


Researchers have discovered that chocolate produced some of the same reactions in the brain as marijuana. The researchers also discovered other similarities between the two, but can't remember what they are.
Matt Lauer on NBC's Today Show, August 22nd


Chocolate is the first luxury. It has so many things wrapped up in it: Deliciousness in the moment, childhood memories, and that grin-inducing feeling of getting a reward for being good.
Mariska Hargitay


Chocolate doesn't make the world go around ... but it certainly makes the ride worthwhile!


Chocolate is the greatest gift to women ever created, next to the likes of Paul Newman and Gene Kelly. It's something that should be had on a daily basis.
Sandra Bullock


It's not that chocolates are a substitute for love. Love is a substitute for chocolate. Chocolate is, let's face it, far more reliable than a man.
Miranda Ingram


Giving chocolate to others is an intimate form of communication, a sharing of deep, dark secrets.
Milton Zelman, publisher of "Chocolate News"


I have this theory that chocolate slows down the aging process.... It may not be true, but do I dare take the chance?


After about 20 years of marriage, I'm finally starting to scratch the surface of what women want. And I think the answer lies somewhere between conversation and chocolate.
Mel Gibson


I don't understand why so many "so called" chocolate lovers complain about the calories in chocolate, when all true chocoholics know that it is a vegetable. It comes from the cocoa bean, beans are veggies, 'nuff said.


I take chocolate from strangers.


... the taste of chocolate is a sensual pleasure in itself, existing in the same world as sex... For myself, I can enjoy the wicked pleasure of chocolate... entirely by myself. Furtiveness makes it better.
Dr. Ruth Westheimer


I could give up chocolate but I'm not a quitter.


Forget love...I'd rather fall in chocolate.


Chocolate is cheaper than therapy and no appointment is needed.
