The Sunday Share – Be the Next Forest Man

I’ve determined that the best way to help the world is to plant trees, lots of them.  I haven’t figured out the where or when, but this guy, The Forest Man did.  He’s an Indian photographer.  About 40 years ago, he started planting trees on a large sandy island.  Now, this island, which is larger than Central Park in New York City is covered with trees.

Why did I determine that this is the best way to help the world?  I don’t know.  Maybe it isn’t, but it seems like a reasonable way to try and help.

Here’s a fascinating animated CO2 map of the world.

It’s spring in the Northern Hemisphere.  Go plant a tree!

 

Han Solo, Miss Peregrine, and Scott Sterling – The Sunday Share (67/365)

Harrison Ford, an actor famous for his role as Han Solo in the Star Wars movies, survived an airplane crash this week.  I’m glad he and his son are okay.  Because they are doing well, the Interwebs declared it open season for poking fun at the crash.

I’m sorry, Mr. Ford. I couldn’t help myself.

The book of the week!  For the first time ever, a book trailer convinced me to read the book.

The book, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children (Miss Peregrine’s Peculiar Children Book 1), is creepy! Just watch the book trailer, and it will give you the chills. I’m three chapters in, and I had a little trouble sleeping last night.

On my lovely journal, the story that garnered the most interest was about when my son, who was one year old at the time, had a diaper blowout in the car seat as the we traveled on Interstate 94.

And, finally, watch this epic soccer shoot out.  It’s okay to laugh about it.  Scott Sterling survived.

That’s all.  I hope you liked The Sunday Share, and remember to share it too.  Sharing is caring!

Llamas, Cats, and Dogs – The Sunday Share (60/365)

I think I finally found a good theme for Sundays.  I’m calling this weekly post, The Sunday Share.  First up, the story of the week, or I should say stories for this Sunday.  There was a dress that was black and blue and white and gold, plus some llamas got loose.

Unless you were in Boulder, Colorado living under a boulder, I don’t know how you could have missed these stories.  Here’s a great summary of those events.

Staying with the same topic, how about the coolest thing that happened in the llama chase.  A cowboy, riding in the back of a moving pick-up truck, lassoed a runaway llama.  Now, that’s a man right there.

The New Yorker recapped the whole story in gif form.  It’s hilarious.

While we’re still talking about llamas, how about the book recommendation of the week.

We have this book in our extensive children’s book collection.  It’s quite fun to read.  Here’s a link to it if you want to buy Llama Llama Red Pajama from Amazon.

On my little blog, the post that got the most traffic this week was a little deep.  I asked a question of myself, “Am I Hurting The World or Helping It?”  Feel free to read and ask yourself the same question.

Last, but not least, I think The Sunday Share should end in with a fun video.  Here’s some cats not letting dogs pass.  YOU SHALL NOT PASS, DOG!

I hope you liked The Sunday Share.  You can share The Sunday Share as well.  Sharing is caring!
