Friday Poem

Environmental & Science Education, Poetry, Art & Environment

Ed Hessler

It is October 22, 2021, the 295th day of the year. Somehow those days became 42 weeks and a day (80.82%). Good morning from the Center for Global Environmental Education (CGEE), Hamline University, Saint Paul, MN.

Sunrise is is 7:38am and sunset is at 6:15pm containing 10h 37m 23s of sunlight.

Foodimentary has a gorgeous image--browns, tans, rouge reds-- to introduce National Nut Day and tells us a few facts about nuts and some general food history. Cashews, for example, are in the same family as poison ivy and  poison sumac, and poison oak but the offending chemical, an oil known as urushiol, is in the seed husk.

Quote: an essential requirement for effective research. An investigator may be given a palace to live in, a perfect laboratory to work in, he may be surrounded by all the conveniences money can provide; but if his time is taken from him he will remain sterile. --Walter Cannon

Todays's poem is by May Swenson.
