A Request


A fellow blogger, Little Messy Missy, is in need of your positive energy and prayers. Her daughter was recently in a very serious car accident. Please take a moment and stop by her blog and let her know you're thinking about her and her family.

Earthing



Way back in the old days, children would go outside to play. They would spend hours playing, running, jumping, climbing trees, laying in the grass imagining shapes in the clouds overhead.
Today, with concrete jungles, apartment buildings and other man-made structures, children are not able to connect with Mother Nature. Adults no longer connect with their Earth Mother. This lack of connection may be the cause of many of today's maladies.
Physically connecting with our Earth Mother is called Earthing. And it is becoming more and more popular with mainstream medicine.
Earthing is the physical contact with the Earth. Most specifically, the transference of electrons from the ground to the skin. The increased number of electrons brings about a multitude of health benefits - improved sleep, lowers stress, lower blood pressure, reduces pain.
So on this beautiful Spring day, reconnect with your Mother and reap the benefits.

Seed Library



A decade ago, a librarian in New York had a wonderful idea to add seeds packets to the library where he worked. People can 'check out' the seeds in the Spring and then return them in the Autumn after harvest. Since then the idea has taken off and now there are more than 150 similar programs in place. 
The purpose is to connect people with heirloom plants which will grow in a regions specific climate. People take the seeds in the Spring, plant them, and then once the plant has gone to seed the gardener will return the seeds to the library. 
And I'm lucky enough to have a Seed Library located very close at hand! 
Check these links to see if there is a Seed Library close to you.

Talking to Plants

image source
Do you talk to your plants? I do.
Do your plants talk back? They will if you listen closely.

George Washington Carver discovered over 300 uses for the peanut plant. He said that he was told of these uses by the plant itself! Some people may feel this is quite far fetched but to those who are in tune to Nature, it is quite normal to have a conversation with a tree or flower or bush. Perhaps if we slow down and listen with our heart and soul rather than our ears and our mind, we will hear what the Flora is trying to tell us.
Experiments have been conducted on a plant's ability to communicate and the response of plants to Human interaction. These experiments have been performed by a variety of scientists worldwide as well as by 'lay people' like the Mythbusters. It has been proven again and again that plants will respond to certain types of noise better than others. Is it the actual noise or is it the vibrations created by the noise to which the plants respond? 
Scientists in China discovered that crop plants will increase their yield when sound waves of certain frequencies are broadcast to them. The frequency levels at which plants respond are well out of the range of human hearing. 
Plants also communicate among themselves, usually by scent. This has been proven again and again. But do they 'talk' to each other? In some sort of way that resembles human conversation? Maybe. A team of researchers are currently studying if some plants have specific requirements for sound and if some plants are more talkative than others.

Plants having the ability to communicate brings about another question. Do they have an intelligence? Do they have a soul? This is a topic that could cause quite a stir.
For over a 100 years, botanists have documented similarities between plants and animals. Which leads to the conclusion that plants are intelligent beings who can communicate not only with each other but with animals and humans. In fact the bond between a plant and a human can be so strong that the plant can sense things about its human, even if the human is many, many miles away.
Kinda gives a whole new meaning to "Tree Hugging".

Mes Super Power


Normal Human Vision on top/Normal Cat Vision on bottom
Me has to confess. Me has been hiding a Super-Power! But since those silly men who wear white coats and use strange mechanical instruments who call themselves Si-En-Tists have discovered the Super Power of Cats AND have blabbed it all over the interwebs, Me decided to go ahead and tell you, Mes Faithful Followers.
Me and other Kitties can see in Ultraviolet. And Hoomans cannot! Many animals have various degrees of Ultraviolet Vision which allows them to follow trails, see animals that blend into the landscape, or direct them towards food. But the Animals with the best vision have the best capability to see in Ultraviolet. So Me can see things that Mommy and Daddy can't! So the next time your Kitty acts like He is seeing something invisible, maybe He is! Cause ghosts can be seen in Ultraviolet Light.

P.S. Doggies can see in Ultraviolet too.

Cat Tales ~ Mes Dream Home

Since Mommy & Daddy have been looking at house designs, Me wanted to put my 5¢ worth in. 


Me found this MOST AWESOME design on the interwebs. It's a house with all sorts of pathways and ledges for Us Kitties! Mommy said she'd take it into consideration. Then Me heard her mumble something about 'in your dreams! cause I'm not getting up on a ladder to clean up the hairballs!'


Me will convince Mommy. Me has My ways!
