Come on in!

Looks like my home state is getting a new neighbor or perhaps two to our ecosystem.  The first one is actually just moving back, as discussed in the article entitled Elk to return to three Missouri countiesby Georgina Gustin at the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

The other one, while not necessarily established or even living here yet, was talked about today in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch in the article entitled “Camera in Chesterfield Reveals Mountain Lion” by Stephen Deere also at the Post-Dispatch.

Welcome to the Neighborhood!

My Love of the Sea

While I don’t live anywhere near the sea, I do have a love for it and it’s with that love that I post this great article on our beloved seas.

I found this one in of all places, my own backyard over at the St. Louis Post-Dispatch and it’s entitled “Ocean Debate Buoys Teachers” by Elizabethe Holland at the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

Even here in the middle of the country we see how important the seas our to our existence.

Sail on!

Feels like spring

So okay, it’s not spring but with winter solstice behind us and the sun out the last couple of days, it reminds me of spring which in turn has gotten me to think about gardening. So with that in mind, here are a couple of nice articles on the subject of gardens.

First up, there is a nice story on community gardens over at the Grist entitled “Jenga Mwendo Grows Community in New Orleans” by Paula Crossfield at the Grist. The other story is a littler closer to home for me and actually more about the end results of a garden entitled “North Side Grocery Aims High” by Georgina Gustin at the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

Sunny Days!

As we welcome…

As we welcome the new year in here in Missouri, lets not forget to get ready to welcome the wild elk that are headed here as noted by Kathy Etling at the St. Louis Post-Dispatch in “Wild Elk Here in Missouri is Closer to Reality”.
