Out west

As someone who has always enjoyed both history and science, not to mention went to school at the University of Oklahoma at Norman, the dust bowl has always been one of those topics that I actually know very little about so this article over at the Wall Street Journal was a quick and easy read.

The article is entitled “The Prophet of the Dust Bowl” by John F. Ross over at the Wall Street Journal and like I’ve said in the past, you will need a subscription to the Journal in order to access the article or you can just go down to your local library to read this article in the Review section of the June 16-17 weekend edition.

You could also check out the book The Promise of the Grand Canyon: John Wesley Powell’s Perilous Journey and His Vision for the American West, also by John F. Ross. Me, I’ve already read the article and now I need to go request the book.

Sincerely-

Four down but two to come

Since the kids and I moved here, we’ve lost four trees. Now I’m someone who loves trees so this has been hard but fortunately we’re looking to replace at least two of them either in the fall or next spring. I’m a true believer in what this next article is all about.

It’s entitled “Does Being around Trees Help People Feel Good? Recent research has shown that trees clean the air, and our feelings” by EarthTalk. Hopefully this spring and/or fall will help clean the air, our feelings and maybe a little of the dust in the air.

Sincerely-
