Our favorite finds from the internet this past week.

Dot ( – This popped up on my feed and it made me so happy to see the wildflowers recovering in California after the severe drought! If you are lucky enough to live in California or happen to be visiting there soon this article  includes a map of popular areas to see the blooms. Enjoy!

JayDee ( – Today is Earth Day! Looking for a fun way to celebrate? How about checking out the Lyrid meteor shower tonight? The article “Lyrid Meteor Shower 2017: When, Where & How to See Its Peak This Week” will help. If the skies are cloudy, you can also watch the meteor shower live at Slooh. Slooh will also have a live presentation this morning (at 9am ET) Celebrating Earth Day, an interview with several astronauts and videos submitted by people all over the world explaining what they would miss about Earth if they were in space. What would you miss most?

Laurie ( – Happy Earth Day! They aren’t exactly household names, but we owe a lot to environmentalists. Here are some names you should know and the reasons you should know them.

Linda ( –  I stumbled across an article by Craig Burrows, a photographer who specializes in ultraviolet photographs of flowers. Mother Nature’s art work is absolutely beautiful, even in the dark. 

Mary Ellen ( – Now that we are retired we know that we will be taking road trips and like the quirky and unusual destinations. The website Roadside America looks just the place to plan some visits. Yes, there’s even an app for that! I would totally like to visit The Lincoln Train Museum .  

Tina ( – I have some shady areas in my yard where grass just does not want to grow and I just ran across this Country Living article for plants that will thrive in the shade.  

Pam ( – As a music lover April 21 is a special day. Today is Iggy Pop’s 70th birthday. While you may not know or even like his music, he almost single handedly created an entire genre of music known as Punk. On the other end of the spectrum, today marks one year ago that we lost another pop icon, Prince. So whatever your musical tastes may be, go have a listen to something you enjoy in honor of all the great musicians out there.
