Monday Morning Inspiration #43: Happy Spring!


Believe it or not, the National Park Service revised their dates again!  They moved peak bloom dates to March 23-26th.

The cold killed half of the blooms 😦

Spring is here… With temperatures expected in the 70’s next weekend, maybe peak bloom will be here.

So it is all good 🙂

I am yet to make it there for a second look… but here is a picture from last year during peak bloom.

Happy Equinox Day!

Scopes Monkey Trial

Henry Drummond: I say that you cannot administer a wicked law impartially. You can only destroy, you can only punish. And I warn you, that a wicked law, like cholera, destroys every one it touches. Its upholders as well as its defiers.

Judge: Colonel Drummond…

Henry Drummond: Can’t you understand? That if you take a law like evolution and you make it a crime to teach it in the public schools, tomorrow you can make it a crime to teach it in the private schools? And tomorrow you may make it a crime to read about it. And soon you may ban books and newspapers. And then you may turn Catholic against Protestant, and Protestant against Protestant, and try to foist your own religion upon the mind of man. If you can do one, you can do the other. Because fanaticism and ignorance is forever busy, and needs feeding. And soon, your Honor, with banners flying and with drums beating we’ll be marching backward, BACKWARD, through the glorious ages of that Sixteenth Century when bigots burned the man who dared bring enlightenment and intelligence to the human mind!
