Another themed post for DGS! This time, we’ll be looking at nature. It’s such a nice day today I figured we have class outside today. C’mon kids!
Even with all our technology and the inventions that make modern life so much easier than it once was, it takes just one big natural disaster to wipe all that away and remind us that, here on Earth, we’re still at the mercy of nature. Neil deGrasse Tyson
“Flowers are appearing on the earth. The season for singing has come.
The cooing of doves is heard in our land.” Song of Solomon 2:12
Ten Ways Hurricane Season is like Christmas
10. Decorating the house (boarding up windows).
9. Dragging out boxes that haven’t been used since last season (camping gear, flashlights).
8. Last minute shopping in crowded stores.
7. Regular TV shows pre-empted for “specials”.
6. Family coming to stay with you.
5. Family and friends from out-of-state calling.
4. Buying food you don’t normally buy … and in large quantities.
3. Days off from work.
1 And the number one reason Hurricane Season is like Christmas…At some point you know you’re going to have a tree in your house!
Some good news. An Indian village has decided to celebrate the birth of girls by planting 111 fruit trees per birth. It’s part of a push for gender equality.
This weird news is pretty intense. In a world where one word can mean many things, medics rushed to help a bird that collapsed. In London, “bird” is a name for a female, so medics thought it was a woman. It wasn’t. It was a pigeon. Wait until you read what happens next. PS: Catch the Emergency Planner Officer’s name. Too perfect.
