Why Do Little Boys...?

Why do little boys do the things they do? Normally, I write my posts on Monday and schedule them to go live on Tuesday morning, but this week, I ran behind.

A little over three hours later, I'm still trying to find the answer to my question:  Why do little boys do the things they do?

A World Without Giraffes?

World Giraffe Day is June 21, 2017, the longest day or the longest night of the year dependent on where you live. Giraffe populations are declining, and the world needs to know.

Can you imagine a world without giraffes?   Giraffes have already become locally extinct in 7 African countries. They are dying out at a rapid, horrifying rate. Most people are unaware of it because we don't see the senseless hunting of giraffes like other threatened species. But they are hunted for their tails, hides, meats, and for trophies. Besides hunting, they are losing their habitat to the growth of humans in their territories. The International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN) lists one species of giraffe as vulnerable to extinction.  Giraffe populations have dropped over 40% in the last 30 years, and their numbers are less than 100,000!
