WIT and WISDOM

"I still say, shoot for the moon, you might get there."

....Buzz Aldrin

"Those are the same stars, and that is the same
moon that looks down upon your brothers and sisters,
and which they see as they look up to them,
though they are ever so far away from us
."

----Sojourner Truth

"The moon is a friend for the lonesome to talk to."

----Carl Sandburg

Butterflies

Each autumn, millions of monarch butterflies
take to the skies to begin their journey to a
warmer climate for the winter.
How the butterflies find their way to the
same sites year after year is a mystery to
scientists.They believe the insects use
the sun as a compass.

When spring comes, monarchs begin their
flight back north, laying their eggs on
milkweed plants along the way.

When caterpillars hatch and transform into
butterflies, they continue the trip northward.

Up to five generations take part in the
anual migration. They are amazing!
