What would be your solution to the over-population of the earth? Earth has finite resources and humanity seems to be breeding themselves to extinction. Some countries have tried restricting the number of children a couple or a person can have, with little success. So what other viable options are there for reducing the number of people? 

Ho-ly smoke, let’s kick this off with a tough one then. Guess we’ll get started.

Overpopulation is a huge problem. We’re draining the earth’s natural resources far too quickly and damaging the environment with a steep increase in pollution production. Our effects are causing plant and animal species extinction. In short, the news is nothing but bad.

BUT. Seeing as I don’t believe it’s our place to legislate that a woman carry a pregnancy to term, it certainly isn’t our place to legislate limits on how many children a woman chooses to have. For me, all that leaves is education – a full force push to teach people why our effect on the planet should factor into their family planning decisions.

Okay, the rest will be ‘recycled’ questions.   I got a Sunshine Blogger Award recently and I thought some of the questions on that post were kinda nifty.   So “recycle”!  

What’s invisible but you wish people could see?

Love. We can show love but I think sometimes, when somebody’s having a particularly hard day, being able to see the love surrounding them would make a world of difference.

What’s the most ridiculous fact you know?

Your thumb is one inch from the knuckle to its end. How this is true for everyone, no matter your age or height, is beyond me.

What are the unwritten rules of where you work? If you don’t work (retired or unemployed) what are the unwritten rules you live your life by?

Acceptance. Compassion. Courage. Equality. And above all, love.

How do you feel about putting pineapple on pizza?

Can’t say I’d do it but live and let live.

Toilet paper, over or under?

Under. Unless you’re in one of those public restrooms where the TP holder has a locked cover and you end up scraping your wrist when the end gets lost and you have to shove your arm up in there to find it. Then over is best.

What’s the best type of cheese?

Back in the day when I could have crackers I ate the most delicious brie once. It had been heated in the oven until it was just the right amount of gooey. Mmm. These days I love mozzarella and cheddar.

If you’d like, please share something positive, uplifting or funny from last week.   We can always use some more of those things! 

Both kids had a good first day at school. Technically that was yesterday but I’m exceedingly grateful for it.
