    Enjoyed a short hike with my 3 year old granddaughter.   She is like a mountain goat with so much confidence

    Did you know?     That 37% of US paper pulp comes from recycled paper

      Kind of hoped it would be higher percentage - may it boost up and fast!

    Did you know?     An average size tree produces enough oxygen in one year to keep a family of four breathing. Three trees planted in the right place around buildings can cut air-conditioning costs up to 50 percent

    i am loving this rain that we have been having and so has my lawn and garden.    Although it literally put a damper on my granddaughters planned outdoor birthday party last night.

    I have been having a lot of fun tending my garden and am grateful for the cooler / damp weather while the tender plants settle in.

    Did you know?   Of the 5000 salmon eggs a fish will lay that on average only 6-8 will survive and return to spawn.

    Did you know?    To replace the power generated at Rocky Reach Dam, we would need 39 square miles of solar panels -   not to mention constant sunny days!

      Bless the water then - solar does work on not sunny days, look at Germany.  We need to do all the renewables, not rely on any one form - IMHO.

    Did you know?     The different parts of a tree grow at different times throughout the year. Typically, most of the foliage growth happens in the spring, followed by trunk growth in the summer and root growth in the fall and winter.
