Happy Star Wars Day!

Holidays and Celebrations:


Porte Musings:

Today is Star Wars Day. One of our biggest cultural modern fairy tales. Once upon a time…in a galaxy far, far away,… Everyone in North America has heard of Luke Skywalker, R2D2, C3P0, and Darth Vader.

Today is also Teacher Appreciation Day. Especially during the pandemic these heroes have soldiered on online and in spirit guiding the young students to be their best. Thank you!

Inspiring young people with conservation in 1894 Bird Day was started by Charles Amanzo Babcock, superintendent of schools in Oil City, Pennsylvania. The idea quickly caught on and became one of the first Conservationist days of celebration and remembrance. Luckily, feathers lost favor in the fashion world and birds stopped being killed for their feathers. Too late for some birds, as we all know the fate of the Dodo. Passenger Pigeon populations were also severely diminished by fashion. So let’s keep the birds where they belong, don’t raid their nests to rob their eggs and don’t kill them for their feathers. Let’s refill the bird feeders and watch them as they go about their routines of living. ❤
