Hope you all are enjoying this year's Earth Day. I guess since we live here, we should have at least one day a year to remind us what a great place it is. It is the best place by far to live in this solar system, in fact it is the only planet that is capable of sustaining life in our solar system. To me, that makes this watery blue, white, and brown ball something really special. Here is a picture of the Earth Day flag:
We only have this one beautiful ball to live on so we better start taking better care of it. But, no matter how well we treat it, one of these days the sun will expand and either burn us up or kick us out of the neighborhood. Either way, it will not be a very happy ending. Until that time, let us try to take a little better care of it. I am guilty of leaving a pretty heavy carbon footprint on the old girl, but I am too old to change now. It is too hard to teach us old dogs new tricks. I am going to leave it up to the younger generation to save the Earth's ecosystem so that they, too, will have a future. So, you all have a great Earth Day, you hear?
