Artists at Work

Yes, Easter has passed, but  I couldn't pass up  a layout of the triplets  coloring their eggs. I remember so well coloring them as a child and as a mother.  Have missed out on it as a grandmother. .. may just color some 'old lady' eggs next year.  That is if we can afford to buy eggs next year. Who knows, those in charge of feeding the masses may decide that we don't need eggs at all.  After all, they do have cholesterol...

Meanwhile, but to the present...and a rebuttal of the doomsdayer's claim that polar bears in the Arctic are declining as a result of global warming.

It so happens that not only are their populations not declining, but they are increasing in number.

In the federal territory of Canada, called Nunavut, they've found larger numbers of the bears.

"The bear population is not in crisis as people believed, " said Drikus Gissing, Nunavut's director of wildlife management.  "There is no doom and gloom."
He added that the media in Canada have led people to believe that polar bears are endangered, but "they are not."

He estimated that there are about 25,000 polar bears in Canada's Arctic region, and "that's likely the highest [number] there has ever been."
