HAPPY EARTH DAY!

my birthday is exactly 6 months from today, so i’m 54 1/2 (i know, i only look 52.) April 22nd, 1970 was the first Earth Day, also known as an “Environmental Teach-In.” yeah, we had sit-ins, and love-ins, and a teach-in. learn something today, or share knowledge. ironically, April 22nd, 1915, was the first time the Germans used chlorine gas in World War I, initiating chemical warfare. go figure.
