Golden Brodie barks… before, during and after the Solar Eclipse

Here comes a truly golden moment on August 21 in the United States..a total solar eclipse. Now…depending where you will be standing that day during the eclipse…you are in for a memorable experience.

I’m a dog… so you might think that when the sun goes dark… because I don’t need to wear protective eye glasses… that I will be clueless and not respond to something celestial.  Wrong!  Consider that the animals, birds, bugs, snakes, certain plants, etc…could react to the unusual midday darkness.

So, let me suggest that while not only looking up and watching the solar eclipse…you pay attention to what’s happening in the natural world 30 minutes before, during the darkness…and 30 minutes after. Your observations could be of interest to you and others.  For sure, you’ll always remember this event and how the world around you reacted.

Remember safety first…you gotta be wearing your solar eclipse glasses to look up into the sun…or perhaps you’ll view the phenomena through that cereal box apparatus that you made…whatever you do…try not to miss this…according to NASA you’ll have to wait until April 8, 2024, for another total solar eclipse over the United States.

Iowa Youth Livestock Show

Mitchell spends and devotes his life to doing the “good” with passion. Such wonderful young man and a lovely dairy cow.

Town & Country Gardening

Mitchell Miner, 15, of Williamsburg, Iowa and Audri entered the Iowa State Fair’s youth dairy cattle show. They prepared for weeks with Mitchell leading, clipping, walking and bathing Audri nonstop up to the competition. On the day of the show, Mitchell woke up at 3 a.m. his third straight early-morning rise putting the final touches on Audri.

Mitchell and Audri ended up placing fifth out of seven contestants, after hard competition, the two took a nap together.

Uncomplicated thoughts: Buddha and anger

“Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of
throwing it at someone else; You are the one who gets burned.”
