The Amazon forest, which produces about 20% of earth's oxygen, and is often referred to as "the planet's lungs" is ablaze.  There's been an 80% increase in deforestation so far this year compared to last year. Scientists have recorded more than 74,000 fires in Brazil this year. That's nearly double 2018's total of about 40,000 fires. In total, the blazes have created a layer of smoke estimated to be 1.2 million square miles wide. You can even see it from space.   On Monday, ...

Are you a runner? Happen to have any old running shoes in your closet? If so, you may be interested in Dave Russell's story. He just got $50,000 for these "funky, old shoes" that happened to be a pair of extremely rare prototype Nike running shoes from 1972 (only 10 were given out).   Dave said, "They were very exotic because the sole was completely different. It was made on a waffle iron. It was glued to the bottom of the shoe."   He said the shoes spent years in a box in h...

I've always been extremely tolerant and accepting of other people. Sometimes to my own detriment because there are a lot of people who take advantage of others. I was taught to help others but not taught where that line is that prevents you from subjugating your own self. From time to time I thought I knew where the line might be but found it elusive. It could be because there is no distinct line and that it shifts for each relatoinship that you have.   Some people I know ha...

I'm always amazed how our mind works.    You can see someone you haven't met with in a long time and all the memories and feelings you had with that person fly in and it feels like you are in those moments again.   Maybe it's a scent, an image or even a deja vu and we are transported to a time and place that feels familiar. Unfortunatley it can also take you back to a place that's painful. (I've had a few of those) It's like time has no relevance, our mind relives moments th...

It's the face of today's multi (or mini) millionaire.    This six-year-old South Korean YouTube star named Boram makes an estimated 2.9 million dollars a month reviewing toys. Her two YT channels - a video blog and a series of toy reviews - have more than 30 million subscribers.   She's the highest earning South Korean YouTuber.   Amazing......

It's become a household name for ride hailing services even though there are several now.  I find that using them is convenient and fascinating. Some have snacks and drinks for their "guests" while others entertain with music and sparkling conversation.     One, from Alaska, has made a name for himself by offering a "ride menu."   Brilliant :)   I think he should add the "Sports Car Ride." Where you strap in and he drives as fast as he possibly can regardless of the speed lim...

I live in Sea Cliff...a tiny hamlet that's 1 square mile containing 5,000 residents. To the north is Glen Cove and Locust Valley. To the east Brookville. We all have three routes to get off this peninsula with Glen Cove Road being the main artery, At present, traversing Northern Blvd is like crossing a chasm.   A developer is in the process of finishing a large set of buildings that will have over 1,000 residential units. And I'm sure each will need two parking spaces. Now w...

Over 100 drivers heading to the Denver International Airport said they were diverted by Google Maps last Sunday due to a crash on major road.   These drivers were led down a dirt road that soon turned muddy due to recent rains and vehicles ended up stuck with about 100 cars lined up behind them.   Google responded stating "We encourage all drivers to follow local laws, stay attentive, and use their best judgment while driving."   Use their best judgement...mmm....haven't seen...

Yesterday was the longest day of the year. A fitting day for Fred's blog.   Now we lose a minute of sunlight every day till the winter soltice even though we are entering the blazing days of summer. I don't know about you but I really don't notice it.   Life seemingly is a little like sipping tea. In general, changes occur subtley, over time with no notice until one morning you wake up and it's dark outside or the cup is empty.   Sipping seems to be more enjoyable than taki...
