Have you ever noticed how some bloggers are less serious than others??? Yeah, I’m one of those. I do have the one or two serious posts in a while, and a few will be coming up shortly. However, here is why I’m less serious than other writers/bloggers.  And by no means is this to offend any of my friends and fellow blogger/writers. 🙂 I love ya’ll equally, well okay some more than others… but whatever. LOL

I am a very serious person when I need to be, I have served my country in War and Peace. Which makes for some uber stressful moments.  I have a very serious job that I do five days a week between eight and ten hours a day, and some times on call for twelve hours on the weekends. Another very very stressful job. One that I don’t really want to change. 🙂 I have suffered  five TIA’s, which lead to a few strokes, which well I’m an overachiever, led to a heart attack, while I was doing my job. My boss still can’t figure out how I completed the work I did that day. LOL I’m tenacious- which is a much nicer way of saying I’m stubborn.

I started blogging back in 2000. And I did so as it was a stress reliever after some horrible incidents in my personal life.  It is still a better coping skill than hitting, punching and/ or using substances. Plus I love to read and write. Thank you, Mom for reading to me in the womb and continuing on. The way my parent’s would discipline me, take away my books and ask the librarians to tattle on me, if I wasn’t really doing homework. LOL Yes, really really.   I’m also a bit of a smart ass. No really! Haven’t you noticed?

I just feel that I have my own little niche and that is that I’m silly, goofy and occasionally serious when need be.  But I’d prefer to keep my posts light and fun. Just felt I should mention that to all the lovely new followers I have. As I’m unfollowing a few of the older bloggers on here that have gone from lighthearted to *facepalm* what are they thinking…. some but not all bloggers have degrees in writing… and if they really wanted to be an investigative reporter… than. Ya know??? LOL 😀 sorry, JMO!

Elephant Appreciation Day
September 22, 2014 in the World
Elephant Appreciation Day is celebrated on September 22, 2014. Elephants are large mammals of the family Elephantidae. Elephants are scattered throughout sub-Saharan Africa, and South and Southeast Asia. The largest living terrestrial animals, male African elephants can reach a height of 4 m (13 ft) and weigh 7,000 kg (15,000 lb). These animals have several distinctive features, including a long proboscis or trunk used for many purposes, particularly for grasping objects.
African elephants are listed as vulnerable by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), while the Asian elephant is classed as endangered. One of the biggest threats to elephant populations is the ivory trade, as the animals are poached for their ivory tusks. Other threats to wild elephants include habitat destruction and conflicts with local people. Elephants are used as working animals in Asia. In the past they were used in war; today, they are often put on display in zoos and circuses. Elephants are highly recognisable and have been featured in art, folklore, religion, literature and popular culture.
Elephants exhibit mirror self-recognition, an indication of self-awareness and cognition that has also been demonstrated in some apes and dolphins. Elephants are popularly thought of as having an excellent memory. This could have a factual basis; they possibly have cognitive maps to allow them to remember large-scale spaces over long periods of time. Individuals appear to be able to keep track of the current location of their family members. Scientists debate the extent to which elephants feel emotion. They appear to show interest in the bones of their own kind, regardless of whether they are related.

World Car Free Day
September 22, 2014 in the World
World Car Free Day is celebrated on September 22, 2014. A Car-Free Day encourages motorists to give up their cars for a day. Organized events are held in some cities and countries. The event promotes improvement of mass transit, cycling and walking, and the development of communities where jobs are closer to home and where shopping is within walking distance. The events, which vary by location, give motorists and commuterists an idea of their locality with fewer cars.
The 1994 Car Free Day Call set out a challenge for a city, neighborhood or group: Spend one carefully prepared day without cars, study and observe closely what exactly goes on during that day and reflect publicly and collectively on the lessons of this experience and on what might be prudently and creatively done next to build on these. Car-Free days are held in many U.S. cities, in Europe and in Japan.

National White Chocolate Day
September 22, 2014 in the USA
It’s National White Chocolate Day! White chocolate was invented by the Nestlé company in Switzerland. The first white chocolate bar debuted in 1930.
Despite its long history, for many years the confection we know as “white chocolate” was not officially chocolate at all. White chocolate does not contain cocoa solids—one of the main ingredients in traditional chocolate. In 2004, ten years after chocolate manufacturers filed the first petition, the FDA finally relaxed its definition of “chocolate” and accepted white chocolate into the family. According to the regulations, true white chocolate must contain at least 20% cocoa butter, 14% total milk solids, 3.5% milk fat, and less than 63% sugar.
Pick up a scrumptious white chocolate truffle or a package of white chocolate covered pretzels to celebrate!

Natural Events:
Autumnal Equinox
September 22, 2014 in Northern Hemisphere
The first day of autumn is in 2014 on September 22 (according to the astronomical definition). It is also called the autumnal equinox, fall equinox or the beginning of autumn. Autumn is one of the four temperate seasons, the transition period between summer and winter usually in September (Northern Hemisphere) when the arrival of night becomes noticeably earlier.
The equinoxes might be expected to be in the middle of their respective seasons, but temperature lag (caused by the thermal latency of the ground and sea) means that seasons appear later than dates calculated from a purely astronomical perspective. According to United States unofficial tradition, autumn runs from the day after Labor Day through Thanksgiving, after which the holiday season that demarcates the unofficial beginning of winter begins.
Association with the transition from warm to cold weather, and its related status as the season of the primary harvest, has dominated its themes and popular images. Many cultures feature autumnal harvest festivals, often the most important on their calendars. Still extant echoes of these celebrations are found in the mid-autumn Thanksgiving holiday of the United States and Canada, and the Jewish Sukkot holiday. In the Northern Hemisphere, autumn is also associated with the Halloween season.
Autumn in poetry has often been associated with melancholy. The possibilities of summer are gone, and the chill of winter is on the horizon. Skies turn grey, and many people turn inward, both physically and mentally. Furthermore, autumn has a strong association with American football, as the regular season begins during September and ends with playoff competition in December or January, in the winter season
Note: The date September 22, 2014 is calculated for Eastern Standard Time (UTC-5). The exact date for autumnal equinox can vary in other time zones.
