Paleontologists have constructed a model of a prehistoric penguin that stood almost 4 feet 6 inches tall when it lived in what is now New Zealand, approximately 25 million years ago.[wired]
A big ice storm can be good for a fruit tree. And icicles reveal some secrets about the storm, too. Come into my post and see!
Here's the first post on the Great Willamette Valley Ice Storm of 2016. I've already shown the effect of the ice on my Sequoia and Larch Trees; Blue Spruce and Western Redcedar Trees; Noble Fir, Grand Fir, and Eastern White Pine Trees; [two sets](
A Ryokan is a traditional Japanese inn. It has become a popular choice for people want to experience the traditional Japanese culture. Most Ryokans have an on-site public bath, also known as Onsen (Hot Spring). It was also the main reason why we decided to stay at a Ryokan, since soaking in an Onsen tab is so relaxing and therapeutic.
Ryokan is widely available in Japan, but if you want to find a Ryokan with natural hot springs, we suggest to look for a Ryokan that is further away from a major city.
As a foodie, Ryokan is also a must try experience. Why???
You got it…Great Food. Most Ryokans offer traditional Japanese dinner and breakfast as a package. Eating at a Ryokan is a very unique experience, most meals consist of traditional multi-course Japanese cuisine, also known as Kaiseki (please see part 2 of my post – coming soon).
For our first Ryokan experience, we stayed at Hakone-Ginyu Ryokan in Hako
In a previous Article/Podcast, we discussed the Growing Earth theory as popularized by Neal Adams, coming to the hypothesis that the Earth is in fact in the process of growing; actually adding mass via the process of pair production — high energy photons striking inward-facing fields, sometimes called “aether” or “prana,” within a magnetic field. If this is a new concept for you, it is imperative that you first go back and watch the growing earth podcast before taking it further with the current podcast.
Now that the growing earth theory has been established, we wanted to take it a step further by further explaining the mechanism for expansion along with the effects this has for us on planet Earth. While many of these concepts are not new, most of them are either currently unknown, not put into context, or obfuscated through mountains of disinformation/misinformation.

The Red Wasp is a creature that we did not have up north in Wisconsin, but is common here in Arkansas. Although it is only February, it has been warm enough for them to come out. With their rusty-red bodies and dark blue-black wings, they can appear quite menacing.
However, I have never been attacked or stung by one yet, even when photographing them up close. Also, it is worth noting that the Red Wasps feed upon many pest insects, so they can be beneficial to have around!
Ülkemizin kuşkusuz her bir yanı doğal ve tarihi güzelliklerle çevrili, bense elimden geldiğince her birini ziyaret etmeye çalışıyorum. Gezdiğim tüm yerler arasında en çok ilgimi ve dikkatimi çeken yerlerden birisi her zaman Pamukkale olmuştur. Hatta yerimde duramayıp bildiğiniz özleyip gitmişliğim bile çoktur.
Haksızda sayılmam hani şu güzellik özlenmez mi? Pamukkale’yi elbet hepiniz coğrafya derslerinden hatırlarsınız. Hani o müthiş travertenlerin şehri. Doğanın kendiliğinden insan eli değmeden oluşturduğu en güzel mucizelerden bir tanesine tanık olduğunuzu hissediyorsunuz yakından gördüğünüzde. Üzerinde yürürken (Tabi ki ayakkabılarınızla değil) sanki bir avuç pamuğun üzerinde yürürmüş gibi kalbinizi dahi yumuşatacak sıcacık hisler uyandırıyor bünyenizde. Diğer bir yandan sıcak ve şifalı sularının pek çok romatizmal hastalı
**YOU** can imagine, about each of problems you face in this life. We always face all sorts of problems, but did you know that all the events and issues that we face is something that will make us strong later in the day? Yes, that's right, to rise, we need to fall. As a philosophy which is owned by the lotus plant, it is flowering and flower displays the beauty to us. But you know that the lotus is a plant that is above the water and the mud, but it is never sinks, rarely carried away by the water flow. Where it lived was dirty, but it was not dirty, it was wonderful.
I believe that most people prefer beach more than mountain when they plan for their vacation. I personally love nature very much. Both mountain and beach are the places that I would love to visit. But if I have to choose only one place for my vacation, I would prefer to travel to mountain more than beach.
For me, mountain can make me feel more refreshed and relaxed surrounded by beautiful nature; forest, green trees, waterfall, lake, birds, etc. Besides, the air is fresh and it is really peaceful!
How about you? Which one do you like most, mountain or beach?
Remark: These places are in my hometown, Phatthalung, that is only a small province in the South of Thailand, but I'm proud to live there in the earlier of my life. In those beautiful days, I enjoyed traveling to both places very much; the mountain and the beach!
The mountain place is named

My lady and I are together for a longer time, we just could have this child before. But first, we chose to live our lives as grownups for some time. We've already been through many problems that young couples with children constantly have. And we didn't have any children when we had these love problems or adjusting problems. I met a lot of people who enter into the marriage only because they made a child. In many cases, that couple wouldn't ever get married if there wasn't that child. And in many cases, those marriages can break very easily. That's why I think that my lady and I have a good foundation for raising this baby that is on it's way. We've been through a lot, through a thousand fight

Hi everyone, first of all thank you for reading my post.
This time I am going to be talking abut my newest passion/ addiction: Jagua.
Jagua looks a lot like areal tattoo
Jagua (Genipa Americana)is the common name of a plant/fruit that grows in South America & Central America, and the unripened juice of the fruit is used to create body art. It has been used for many years by many tribes to create face- body paintings, the color that jagua develops into is a blue/ black color, depending on the body part that it is applied, on the hands it becomes almost black, and that is the reason why many henna artists world-wide are starting to incorporate jagua as a safe alternative to
Mangrove jungle in the Negeri Sembilan Peninsula Malaysia
The thick Mangove forests in Malaysia can be found on rivers, sheltered coastlines and nearby islands. These very thick forests are able to support many species of animals and plants. The coastal Mangrove forests protect seaside villages from winter storms, and provide valuable resources. They are used for fuel, wood, medicine, herbs, timber, and food. When used correctly, these valuable forests provide a very fast growing substainable enviroment.

Hola a todxs, antes que nada gracias por leer mi publicación.
Esta vez voy a estar hablando de mi más reciente pasión/ adicción: la jagua.
Jagua se parece mucho como untatuaje real
Jagua (Genipa Americana) es el nombre común de un a fruta que crece en América del Sur & Centro América, y el jugo sin madurar de esta fruta se usa para arte corporal. Ha sido utilizado por muchos anos por varias tribus indígenas para crear pinturas faciales y corporales, el color que la jagua desarrolla es un color azul/ negro, dependiendo de la zona corporal donde sea aplicada, en las manos se vuelve casi negra y esa es la razón por la cual artistas de henna alrededor del mundo estan empezando a incorporar jagua, como una alternativa sana a la
Hi all! Recently I was in the forest and made some new photos. At this very day in the forest the sun shone brightly and can be seen as a bright light falls on the treetops.
I also took a few photos of the lush branches of fir trees and a winter road.

Hi Dear Steemians.... The few pictures Ligia oceanica, I took this picture yesterday on a beach in Aceh. Sea Slater included in wild animals, it is difficult to capture the image. Even by using a macro lens like me, much more difficult, focusing distance of only 5 cm.
I hope you enjoy my offerings.
All pictures taken with smartphone camera, Xiaomi redmi note 4, with the addition of a macro lens.
Ligia oceanica, the sea slater, common sea slater or sea roach, is a littoral woodlouse.
