oldParasiteSingle: abcworldnews reported this like the urban farmers are pests. Of course, Silicon valley sending corporate raiders to destroy their Radical anti-corporate culture by spiking land prices is all A-ok, Google glass aside.

Cades Cove, Great Smoky Mountains
Photograph by Christopher Ewing, My ShotThis was taken in the beautiful Great Smoky Mountains in Cades Cove on Sparks Lane in October 2012. I went to the cove in hopes of a lot of fog, a little disappointed there wasn’t that much. But walking down the lane as the sun came up, the light all photographers dream about showed itself.

Milky Way, New Zealand
Photograph by Stefan Mutch, My ShotThis was taken on the Otago Peninsula near Dunedin, New Zealand. I was hoping to capture some aurora activity. There was no aurora that night, but there was high humidity, so the light from the city was reflected over the entire sky, even though we were well away from the city. Instead of the usual gold or orange glow, the sky took on a red hue that was clearly visible to the naked eye.

In 2001, Rwanda replaced its old flag because of its associations with the genocide, and brought in this brand new lovely flag. Blue symbolises happiness and peace, while yellow stands for economic development. Green means the hope of prosperity, and the sun represents unity and the fight against ignorance. Reblog this to help us celebrate a unified, peaceful and prosperous Rwanda in 2014!

Photo @ladzinski - It’s a long way down for a drink if you’re a giraffe. This lone elderly male had to be extra careful, scouting for predators before making the slow dip down. The giraffe has the largest heart of any land mammal which is necessary for pushing blood to the brain quickly and keeping the animal from fainting, for instance after a drink when it rapidly brings it’s head back up in mere seconds, which would result in fainting for nearly any other animal. @3stringsproductions by natgeo

Do not ask your children
to strive for extraordinary lives.
Such striving may seem admirable,
but it is the way of foolishness.
Help them instead to find the wonder
and the marvel of an ordinary life.
Show them the joy of tasting
tomatoes, apples and pears.
Show them how to cry
when pets and people die.
Show them the infinite pleasure
in the touch of a hand.
And make the ordinary come alive for them.
The extraordinary will take care of itself.
