Viva la France

To be honest I don’t think I post lot of article about what’s going on in other parts of the world but as my kids well know, I’ve always been partial to France. From learning (or trying to learn) french in high school to going to Paris many years ago, so tonight’s posting shouldn’t be a surprise to them.

The article is entitle “A Revolution in Brittany: Mayors Defy French State to Ban Pesticides” by Adam Nossiter over at the New York Times. Safe to say what goes on in other parts of the world concerning the environment, affect us all. Also, it kind of makes me long to visit France again.

Sincerely-

All around us

While these two articles don’t discuss rocks, sewers, etc… they do talk about a couple of  chemicals that are/or were at one time, all around us. The first article, “Magi Would Have a Tough Time Finding Frankincense Today” by Elizabeth Weise at USA Today is on resin, made from the gum of the Boswellia Papyrifera Tree.

While nature’s chemicals sometimes go away, others like those made by man, seem to have a hard time going away such as the ones mentioned in this article entitled “Old Chemicals Are Back in Battle Against Weeds” by Georgina Gustin at the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
