Good day, my dear readers! I just popped by to wish you all a wonderful and prosperous Earth Day, which makes it's official appearance on Sunday, April 22, 2012. As you can see, my little associate Scooter has agreed to accompany me with his earthy demonstrations.
"Everything here is so clear, you can see it...
And everything here is so near, you can feel it"...
The founder of Earth Day is said to have been US Senator Gaylord Nelson, but, the idea was actually presented by John McDonnell, at a United Nations conference in 1969. Looks like there might have originally been two separate days for this occasion...March 21st and April 22. Eventually, April 22nd became the designated date and, well, the entire week, actually. Agreed? Yay! It was designed to get all schools involved in the movement, including colleges and universities. And, the focus was, and is, to encourage all people, of all nationalities to show their (our) appreciation for our planet.
Lets' work to protect the future of our environment!
Plant a tree!
Pick up trash from the yard and curb!
(even if you didn't throw it there)
Clean up the unwanted brush from your yard!
And try to keep unsightly vegetation under control!
Empty standing water from containers in your yard!
Keep your birdbaths clean with fresh water, daily!
Pledge an act of Green!

Thank you so much for stopping by...remember, EVERYDAY is Earth Day! We're all responsible for the well-being of our God-given earth! Let's vow to at least TRY to do something constructive...just one thing a day! I won't kick the coke bottle to the curb, if you won't! I'll pick it up...even tho I don't drink coke! I'll pick it up and I'll get it to the nearest trash can, even if it has to be MY trash can!
Do we have a mutual pledge? Then I say, YAY!!!
Have a wonderful week...AND, a wonderful EARTH Life!
Thank you my little earth boy Shawn!
