The three types of people ๐Ÿ‘ฆ๐Ÿง‘โ€๐Ÿฆฑ๐Ÿ‘จ๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿฆฑ

A teacher shows three toys to a student and asks the student to find out the differences.

All the three toys seemed to be identical in their shape, size and material.

After keen observation, the student observes holes in the toys.

First toy has holes in the ears. Second toy has holes in ear and mouth.

Third toy has only one hole in one ear.

Then with the help of a needle, the student puts the needle in the ear hole of the first toy.

The needle comes out from the other ear.

In the second toy, when the needle was put in the ear, the needle came out of mouth.

And in the third toy, when the needle was put in, the needle did not come out.

1. First toy represents those people around you who give an impression that they are listening to all your things and care for you.

But they just pretend to do so. After listening, as the needle comes out from the next ear, the things you said to them by counting on them are gone.

So be careful while you are speaking to this type of people around you, who does not care for you.

2. Second toy represents those people who listen to you, all your things and give an impression that they care for you.

But as in the toy, the needle comes out from mouth.

These people will use your things and the words you tell them against you by telling it to others and bringing out the confidential issues for their own purpose.

3. Third toy, the needle does not come out from it.

These kinds of people will keep the trust you have in them. They are the ones who you can count on.

Always stay in a company of people who are loyal and trustworthy.

People, who listen to what you tell them, are not always the ones you can count on when you need them the most.

The Life-Saving Touch

A man was asked to paint a boat. He brought his paint and brushes and began to paint the boat a bright red, as the owner asked him.

While painting, he noticed a small hole in the hull, and quietly repaired it.

When he finished painting, he received his money and left.

The next day, the owner of the boat came to the painter and presented him with a nice check, much higher than the payment for painting.

The painter was surprised and said โ€œYouโ€™ve already paid me for painting the boat Sir!โ€

โ€œBut this is not for the paint job. Itโ€™s for repairing the hole in the boat.โ€

โ€œAh! But it was such a small serviceโ€ฆ certainly itโ€™s not worth paying me such a high amount for something so insignificant.โ€

โ€œMy dear friend, you do not understand. Let me tell you what happened:

โ€œWhen I asked you to paint the boat, I forgot to mention the hole.

โ€œWhen the boat dried, my kids took the boat and went on a fishing trip.

โ€œThey did not know that there was a hole. I was not at home at that time.

โ€œWhen I returned and noticed they had taken the boat, I was desperate because I remembered that the boat had a hole.

โ€œImagine my relief and joy when I saw them returning from fishing.

โ€œThen, I examined the boat and found that you had repaired the hole!

โ€œYou see, now, what you did? You saved the life of my children! I do not have enough money to pay your โ€˜smallโ€™ good deed.โ€

So no matter who, when or how, continue to help, sustain, wipe tears, listen attentively, and carefully repair all the โ€˜leaksโ€™ you find. You never know when one is in need of us, or when God holds a pleasant surprise for us to be helpful and important to someone.

Along the way, you may have repaired numerous โ€˜boat holesโ€™ for several people without realizing how many lives youโ€™ve save.

Make a differenceโ€ฆ. Be the best you.

World Food day October 16th

World Food Day is celebrated every year on 16th October to mark the formation of the Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO).  The food and Agriculture Organisation of the United Nations is a specialized organization that leads international efforts to defeat hunger.

The first session of the Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) Conference was held on 16th October 1945. It is an intergovernmental organization present in over 130 countries. World Food Day was established by the member countries of AFO (Food and Agriculture Organization) in November 1979 at the organizationโ€™s 20th General Conference. Dr. Pal Romani, a member of the Hungarian delegation and the then Minister of Agriculture and Food, was instrumental in the 20th General Conference of the AFO and proposed the idea of โ€‹โ€‹launching the World Food Day-WFD worldwide.

The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations has played an important role in making the initiative World Food Day possible and fulfilling its goal. Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) ensures food security by developing ways of growing food that will work in the future so that millions of people donโ€™t go hungry. It works with governments and partners to empower some of the worldโ€™s most marginalized people to end rural poverty.

The Theme for World Food Day 2021 is โ€œOur actions are our future- Better production, better nutrition, a better environment, and a better lifeโ€.

As a result of globalization and urbanization and income growth, there have been changes in our diet and eating habits. We have moved from seasonal, mainly plant-based, and fiber-rich dishes to diets that are high in refined starches, sugar, fats, salt, processed foods, meat, and other animal-sourced products. Less time is spent preparing meals at home, and consumers, especially in urban areas, increasingly rely on supermarkets, fast food outlets, street food vendors, and takeaway restaurants.

The Wise Mouse & Bouncy Tiger

On a dusty windy road in the middle of the countryside a wise mouse is walking. He carries everything he needs on his back and is happy and content. With each small step he breaths in really experiencing his surroundings, the fresh air and the beautiful rolling countryside.

Suddenly out of seemingly nowhere a bouncy tiger comes racing along the track. The tiger skids to a halt in a rather dramatic fashion and introduces himself to the mouse.

โ€œHello little mouse, I am Tony the bouncy tiger, do you want to race me?โ€

โ€œHello Tony tiger, I am Micheal mouseโ€ replied our wise little mouse โ€œIโ€™m not in a rush Tony and have no need of a race, sorryโ€

โ€œOh come onโ€ replies Tony bouncing up and down as he does so โ€œit will be awesomeโ€

โ€œSorry Tony, rushing around everywhere isnโ€™t my thing, I like to breath in my surroundings and become present in the moment, Iโ€™m afraid running around we miss so muchโ€

โ€œOhhhhhh pleaseโ€ replies Tony even more animated and bouncy

Our wise mouse has a little think to himself and decides the only way is to entertain the bouncy tigerโ€™s idea of a race. And finally agrees.

Tony gets even more excited at the news and is uncontrollably bouncing around on the start line.

โ€œSo where do we race tooโ€ asks the little wise mouse

โ€œLetโ€™s race to the beautiful old tree, a few miles awayโ€ replies Tony โ€œlast one there smells like rotten cabbageโ€

The countdown begins

โ€œ3โ€ฆ..2โ€ฆ..1โ€ฆ.. Goโ€ shouts the mouse

The Tiger set off like a jet airplane leaving a cloud of dust as he goes, before long he is way out of sight and over the hill leaving our mouse far behind.

Back at the start line the dust finally settles and our little wise mouse picks up his rucksack and slowly sets off along the dirt road. Before long our mouse is happily enjoying the moment once again. Breathing in he becomes present, happy and content.

Far far ahead Tony the bouncy tiger is beginning to feel tired, the beautiful old tree is a lot further than he first thought. However he soon finds himself standing next to the old tree and feeling very triumphant indeed. The fast run has taken its effect and our Tiger is feeling sleepy and so decides to take a nap, safely in the knowledge a little mouses legs could never beat a tiger.

The wise mouse and bouncy tiger moral story,

Meanwhile

Meanwhile at the back of the race our little wise mouse is quietly enjoying his stroll when he meets a lovely rabbit who has just made a fresh pot of herbal tea. He stays for a while before moving onwards where he then meets a lovely squirrel who shares her lunch. Feeling refreshed and energised our little mouse continues along the dusty road with an open heart, present in the moment. His next encounter is with a travelling band who play him a song as entertainment followed by a badger who teaches him a magic trick.

The Mouse & The Tiger meet again

Finally our little mouse comes to the beautiful old tree where the bouncy tiger is still fast asleep.

After gently awakening the tiger the little mouse recounts his day and all about the lovely people he met along his journey. The tiger listened intently and is completely taken aback how many people and how much fun the little mouse has had along the very same road the tiger had come.

โ€œHow is it little mouse that I met no one and you had all this fun?โ€ asked the tiger โ€œeven though we both took the same pathโ€

โ€œBecause tiger your always in such a rush. Bouncing around here and there and never really appreciating the moment your in. You chose to run as fast as you could and to the destination. I chose to enjoy the journey, the fresh air, the countryside and my surroundings I was walking in. This gave me time to meet others and share in there joy and happiness. It isnโ€™t the destination thatโ€™s important, yes it may be our final goal, itโ€™s the journey however thatโ€™s truly important. Itโ€™s this very journey that makes and shapes our very lives it moulds us into who we areโ€

โ€œWow little mouse that is profound and it makes total sense to me. Iโ€™m going to from now on slow down and smell the roses, Iโ€™m going to enjoy the journey more than where Iโ€™m trying to get too.โ€

And together the little wise mouse and the bouncy Tiger slowly walked off together along the dusty road, each enjoying the moment and the journey they were on.

Flowering Dogwood Tree Care: Where To Plant And How To Care And Prune Cornus Dogwood Treesโ˜˜๏ธ๐Ÿ€

Dogwood Tree Berries In Autumn (photo by Rosana Brien / My Garden Plot)

About Cornus: Flowering Dogwood Trees

One of our favourite deciduous trees in our garden is the Cornus kousa dogwood. Festooned with clusters of creamy white flowers, this tree is a popular choice in many Pacific Northwest coast gardens. Below find information how to plant dogwoods, tips on dogwood tree care including pruning guidelines and disease problems that affect some dogwoods.

Dogwoods are native to North America, as well as the Far East. They are considered either small deciduous trees or shrubs. Dogwood trees are mostly deciduous but there are a few ever greens.Cornus capitata (Evergreen Dogwood). The regional term โ€˜flowering dogwoodโ€™ is a misnomer, though, since all members of the genus Cornus have flowers. But the flowers are not the only attraction, their foliage, end of season berries, and the autumn colours are outstanding too. The dogwood berries are edible though not tasty to us but enjoyed by birds and squirrels. Although reasonably hardy, the dogwood can come with its problems. For this reason, where you plant it and how you care for it is crucial.

Where And When To Plant And How To Care For Dogwood Trees

Dogwoods should be planted in autumn or early spring, and never in summer when it is hot and dry. The hole should not be deep, but it should be extra wide to allow the roots to easily grow outwards.

Dogwoods, unless otherwise stated, prefer a cool sunny site and can tolerate light shade. In a sunny location where it is protected from the hot afternoon sun works perfectly. It performs best planted in moist but well-drained, slightly acidic to neutral soil that is rich in organic matter. Add mulch in spring (but keep the mulch from touching the base of the trunk), fertilize moderately, and water regularly during hot summers.

The Horse and The Butterfly a Moral Storyโœ๏ธ

The horse and butterfly insirational moral story,

Once upon a time there lived a sad and lonely Horse. It was a long time ago that his owner had died, and now no one visited our horse anymore. He so desperately wanted company, to join the other horses he could hear in the distance. Alas his field was fenced and there was no escape. He would spend his days wandering sadly around his field eating only the tastiest bits of grass. Until one day everything changed for him.

On that amazing, life tranforming day everything started out as normal. It all started while he was sampling a particularly tasty patch of grass. At that moment a Butterfly came fluttering along and landed on a dandelion next to our Horse.

โ€œHello beautiful Horseโ€ said the Butterfly

Surprised and delighted that the Butterfly could talk the Horse instantly began telling the Butterfly all his worries

โ€œYou seeโ€ said the Horse โ€œno one comes to visit anymore and Iโ€™m desperately lonely and trapped in this fieldโ€

โ€œOh I seeโ€ said the Butterfly โ€œthatโ€™s terrible you feel this wayโ€

Now it was just lucky for our Horse, that fine morning, that this little Butterfly was fluttering through the field. Some may even say it was a coincidence that the Butterfly landed on just that exact dandelion next to our Horse. For our Butterfly was a wise and gentle soul and understood instantly our Horseโ€™s worry and pain.

โ€œItโ€™s sad Horse but you have lost your wayโ€

โ€œHow do you mean little Butterflyโ€ asked the Horse

โ€œYou are magnificent, strong and independent, but have forgotten who you areโ€

โ€œI know Iโ€™m a Horse little Butterfly, I havenโ€™t forgottenโ€

But with that said the Butterfly fluttered off to another flower on the other side of the field. Our Horse started to follow and began thinking out loud.

โ€œWhat did the Butterfly mean Iโ€™ve forgotten who I am? I am a Horse, I donโ€™t get it.โ€

Soon he was where the little Butterfly had landed again and asked

โ€œLittle Butterfly Iโ€™m confused, can you explain furtherโ€

โ€œOf courseโ€ kindly replied the Butterfly โ€œyou have been stuck for a long time within this field, lonely and desperate for company. Slowly over time this has become your normal. Then gradually your have taken this normal to become who you are!โ€

โ€œThat sounds deep little Butterflyโ€ said the Horse โ€œHow do you meanโ€

โ€œWe all place prisons within our own minds. These prisons stop us from achieving our lifeโ€™s goals and dreams. Your life alone in this field has now become a type of prison in your mind. You have forgotten your a Horse.โ€

And with this the little Butterfly fluttered off to another flower.

โ€œOh Iโ€™m still confusedโ€ thought the Horse as he wandered over to where the Butterfly had once again settled โ€œwhat prison in my mind?โ€

Soon our Horse was once again where the Butterfly had landed and asked her to explain some more

โ€œI would like to tell you a little story to help explainโ€ said the little Butterfly

โ€œOh I like Storiesโ€ replied the Horse

โ€œThen I shall begin.

The common house flea has the ability to jump 200 times itโ€™s own height. Now if you place a glass cup over that same flea something interesting happens. When the flea now jumps he keeps hitting his head on the bottom of the glass cup. After a few jumps the flea realises whatโ€™s happening and will adjust his jumping height accordingly. The flea now jumps to just under the roof of the cup. When you remove the glass our poor flea is now conditioned into jumping at this new height. He has learnt from experience that if he jumps any higher he will hit his head and it hurts. He has created his very own glass ceiling or a kind of prison in his own mind.

This is the prison of our own minds, we all create them and yours Horse is this field. You have forgotten your a Horse and what horseโ€™s do.โ€

But with this last comment the Butterfly flew out of sight and our Horse was left alone in his field once again.

For a moment our Horse felt sad he was left alone again. Gradually though, as he satarted thinking about what the little Butterfly had said he suddenly realised he was a Horse.

โ€œI am a Horseโ€ he exclaimed โ€œand horses run and jump and play. I had forgotten who I was, I really had made my own prison in my mind. This field with its fence around me had become my prison, but Iโ€™m a Horse and Horseโ€™s run and jump and playโ€

And with this our Horse ran as fast as his legs could take him straight at the fence. In one great jump he cleared it and landed on the other side. He never even glanced back, he just kept running and running to the sounds of the other horses in the distance. our Horse was now free.

Moral of the Story:

We have all created some form of prison within our own minds. Anywhere you donโ€™t want to be is like a prison, even in the lap of luxury one can feel poor and in a crowd, lonely. To see these prisons we have created it helps if we practice meditation, observing the mind. We get to watch the minds interactions and games it plays as it experiences the world through our 5 senses. When we can truly see, those prisons we have created and there unwholesome qualities we will naturally let go. We begin to move forward and escape our very own prisons.

Bunching onion stems โ˜˜๏ธ๐Ÿ€

Bunching Onions – Key Growing Information

Rows of bunching onions 'Parade', being trialed at our research farm in Albion, Maine.

SCIENTIFIC NAME:Allium fistulosum
CULTURE:Seed can be sown in early spring for summer use, and in July or August for fall and spring use. Bunching onions prefer a soil with a pH of 6.2โ€“6.8. Extra-hardy varieties will normally survive the winter if the soil is well drained.
DIRECT SEEDING:Sow ยผ” apart in rows of 2โ€“3″ wide bands,ยผโ€“ยฝ” deep. Thin to about an inch apart only if large diameter is needed. Keep well cultivated so that plants receive maximum light.
TRANSPLANTING:Sow 6โ€“8 seeds per cell in 72-cell trays at the same time you would seed bulbing onions for transplant. Transplant seedling clusters 6โ€“8″ apart in rows 18″ apart. For negi-style scallions with a thicker blanched portion, start in flats. Then, beginning in late spring, when 8โ€“18″ tall and pencil-thick, transplant outdoors 6″ apart, rows 24″ apart in holes dibbled about 6″ deep. Only 1โ€“2″ of leaves need extend above the soil surface. Do not firm soil โ€” allow irrigation or rain to fill in the dibble hole.
BLANCHING:During the growing period hill the plants with soil 2 or 3 times, higher with each hoeing. This forces the leaves higher up the plant resulting in extra-long blanched stalks and a much greater edible portion. When using the “dibble method”, hilling is reduced or eliminated.
HARVEST:Loosen with fork or underminer and gather. Wash, hydrocool, and hold at near freezing until shipped or displayed.
