HAPPY .....


"Our goal is not just an environment of clean air and water and scenic beauty.  The objective is an environment of decency, quality and mutual respect for all other human beings and all living creatures."

Founder of Earth Day

The history of Earth Day can be found at this link.

And if you haven't seen Jane Goodall on Google yet, I have embedded her video at the end of my post.  If you can't view the video, you can see it here at YouTube.



I have long admired this lady.  Back in my single days we shared the same surname.  I have always had a great love of animals, and in my youth I wished dearly that Jane and I were related.  I asked my father if we were.  His answer was no, but perhaps you are kindred spirits.  That's my connection.

Happy Earth Day Everyone.  Trying to do my part in my own small way.

  5. I did not know it was Earth Day today. Perhaps not in the UK. I shall check.

    Indeed, we are all inter-connected: humans, animals, birds, fish and insects. And plants too.

    Did you draw the picture of the monkey? It is excellent.

    God bless.

  13. Jane says we all have a role to play in this tapestry of life. It’s true that we can’t just leave it up someone else to stop mistreating air, water and one another. Each person individually must stand up wherever possible. She makes it clear in her very special way that it’s a responsibility we share. I love Jane Goodall and find it quite amazing that she was born with the perfect name because she does focus on what’s good for all.

I thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. I enjoy reading them very much and always try to return a visit. As I do monitor comments it may take a while for them to appear, even quite late depending on what is going on and how much time I am able to spend on the computer.

Also, there are times when I delete by mistake, so if something you have written to me is gone, it's usually because my fingers have pushed the wrong button!
