Notables in June

I’ve  started this little gallery widget on my sidebar.

I’m adding small pictures / text that highlight the various awareness days.  Since WordPress (and my wee little blog) has international followers I’m trying to focus on “world awareness” days.

I know I’m missing many. I’m adding those who touch my life, my heart and my imagination.

Some are so very important at a life level others are important because they promote joy.

We may not have the money to give to help but we all have time. Time to learn and understand.

Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.

Nelson Mandela

FYI

  1. Monarch butterflies journey from the Great Lakes to the Gulf of Mexico, a distance of about 2,000 miles, and return to the north again in the spring.

  2. Butterflies cannot fly if their body temperature is less than 86 degrees.

  3. Some butterflies are listed as “near threatened” by the World Wildlife Foundation (ie Monarch Butterfly)

FYI

1.  Juggling can have many benefits. It develops concentration, hand-eye coordination and patience. When heavier balls are used, juggling can help to improve upper body strength and agility.

2. Juggling has been around for at least 4,000 years. The first recorded evidence of juggling has been seen in ancient Egyptian hieroglyphics in the Beni Hassan tomb. Evidence of juggling has also been seen in other cultures throughout the world, including the Ancient Chinese, Ancient Greeks, Aztec Indians and Native American Indians.

We all live on a watershed which affects our oceans.

Do you have a positive effect or a negative effect?

Oceans generate 80% of the oxygen we breathe.

Oceans supply us with food.
