DESTRUCTION FOLLOWS IN THE AFTERMATH OF GLOBAL WARMING

Rare 7 color Bird of Paradise found in the Rainforest

We are fast approaching one of the most colorful and loveliest times of the year-Fall.  Beautiful, brilliant colors of red, gold, and orange. Mother Nature is preparing all of creation for a long winter’s nap. Not to worry though - I’m sure there is still plenty of summer sun left for another  barbecue and activities. Speaking of Mother Nature, for over a  month now we have been witness to her darkest side and the aftereffects of global warming. As for the title of this article, I think the latest TV news reflect the predictions of global warming  and really need to be taken seriously, especially now after the  horrific forest fires that occurred in Alaska, Siberia, the Amazon Rainforest, and recently Bolivia during June, July and now August 2019. There are other areas but these are the most outstanding. We usually associate wildfires and destruction with California,icebergs and polar bears in Siberia. Not in this instance. Within a heartbeat, a lush green tropical forest landscape was transformed into an unimaginable holocaust of hell. Uncontrolled deforestation, loss of unique wildlife that will never be replaced and the lives of indigenous people. You may wonder why I am writing  about something that happened in July and now it’s September.  This article appeared in my CNN email only recently and it mentioned the tragedies of global warming.  After reading it, I  felt it should be passed on.  The disastrous affects have been felt world wide.   According to the report, in Eastern Russia on July 29, 2019, fires sweep across more than 3.2 million “hectares”  (equal to 7.9 million acres) enveloping entire cities in black smoke and noxious fumes; environmentalists warn of a disaster threatening to accelerate the melting of the Arctic. Like the Amazonian fires, the Siberian fires have the potential to accelerate global warming. Here, at home we have had to deal with fires in California and other places.  This year has been filled with mass shootings in other states as well as the destructive weather conditions. Very often times with fatal results.  If you get the chance, check out this informative and amazing report on Google, it seems almost unreal.

On the brighter side let’s have a few more outings, enjoy this wonderful weather in the “D”  and get ready for autumn. I love this city!

The social season will start in a few weeks;  concerts, football and many other great events. Speaking of football, our fashion experts have designed a new bra for women who are CRAZY about football and are “well endowed” it’s called a “wide receiver”!

For those ladies with less (especially seniors) and who need a “lift” in their lives a new bra works wonders! Skip the football!

Have you hugged a wonderful senior today ??  They really need to be remembered.

More next time.  Michelle
