    Beautiful illustration Stephanie!

    Another species of Mango Tree (Mangifera indica)is the national tree of Bangladesh. Regardless, I imagine that both are equally tasty and have many wonderful health benefits :) Yummi!

    Can’t we come up with something other than this “humans are a plague on earth” crap? I mean, really, enough already with the obsolete and jejune Malthusian delusions…

    Enough with the doom and gloom already. This is beginning to sound analogous to what Mark Twain said about the weather, “everybody talks about it but nobody does anything.” Which means that these endless triads about the evils of modern society fall into the category of another Mark Twain quote, “Reports of my death have been greatly exaggerated.” In Washington, DC in the ’60’s, there were signs along the Potomac river that warned not only about drinking the water from it but also warning about getting any of the water on your skin. Now, the river has been cleaned up and not only can you fish in it but can eat the fish. So all is not lost.

    Now if you want to eat a mango without too much mess, cut in half parallel to the seed (rather large and elongated) on both sides of the seed. Now you have two halves with peel on one side and open on the other. If you are effete, eat the contents with a spoon. If not cut the fruit in longitudinal strips, then in transverse strips, resulting in cubes. Take care not to through the skin. Then invert the mango so that the cubes are projecting and eat the sucker. A little messy but very good.

    As to our good Steff. someone suggested that she is in grad school. Studying botany perhaps?

    The US “Dust Bowl” (1930-1939) occurred because of the change in the jet stream further down south. Kept the rain away and turned the area into an arid desert. But now it could become a more permanent happening as the GHG’s change the nature of the atmosphere.

    But the way humans have been acting have plagued the Earth. Sorry but if we don’t get our collective act together we will surely perish (or live poorly) together.

    Life itself is the embodiment of avarice. There is no limit to its excess, no advantage it will not exploit to the fullest of its capability. It is an unquenchable hunger, driven by the strictest of needs, as Life must consume in order to exist. And whatever one life takes for its benefit is a resource denied to another. It is, by nature, inherently unfair and unbalanced.

    In periods of relative abundance, this limited denial has little impact but to provide fuel for the growth of these exploitive elements. But as competition increases to the point where denial of resources becomes a factor in survival, the dynamic between winners and losers will be drawn all the more sharply. And nature carries no sympathies for the lost. There are the victors of the day, and there are the dead. Struggle is their only constant. To alter any of this is a power beyond humankind, which is both his blessing and his curse.

    @Ms. Ima

    Since it is a joint effort by all of us I am ready. Are you? NO. So telling me to “go first” is just your way of avoiding what any of us have said here today.
