If you are a "non-responder or OpenID-er" which to me means I have no way of responding to a comment that you've left, please leave a way for me to get in touch with you, especially if you're participating in a blog give-away or if you are asking for information or links.
By leaving your email within your comment, I can find you. I realize that this is sometimes a scary thing to do with scams and all but if you disguise the email as say.....

this is the perfect way to hide from the unwanted eye. So please help me out if you are one of the non-responders.
Thank you, in advance.....Ravelly Rhonda!!

It's Earth Day, Charlie Brown

I remember that vividly from years ago and as a retired teacher i salute "Earth Day." It's a day that children, through some slight pressure from the powers that be, begin to appreciate the world around them. Most of this involves cleaning up parks by picking up someone's careless disregard for the nature around them, raking leaves, and planting flowers and tress. Which brings me to the picture I chose for "Earth Day." It's a picture of a conifer tree (pine). I thought of the poem by Joyce Kilmer .... Trees ..... and just wanted to share it with you on this special day. I think that I shall never see A poem lovely as a tree. A tree whose ungry mouth is prest Against the sweet earth's flowing breast; A tree that looks at God all day, And lifts her leafy arms to pray; A tree that my in summer wear A nest of robins in her hair; Upon whose bosom sonw has lain' Who intimately lives with rain. Poems are made by fools like me, But only GOD can make a tree.
