Innovative Community Solutions That Fight Hunger

The old weather is creeping into most of the states of the United States of America. It is a long standing tradition that around mid January the seed and nursery catalogs arrive. People start dreaming of spring and the fun of planting a garden. Summer comes and excessive quantities of garden go to waste because of over planting, vacation, and many more excuses. 

The food pantries of communities are in extreme need because of high demand caused by the unemployment and economic conditions stressing many families.

Gary Oppenheimer organized a website that encourages pantries to sign on to help gardeners find the pantries that have organized plans to help gardeners donate and provide nourishment for people with hunger concerns in our own country. This group he organized deserves recognition for providing this very necessary tool to help communities turn often unused wasted resources into a valuable nutritious meals to needy families.

We need you to help them get the pantries on board near you. If you are a gardener, use this site to help you get your extra produce to people in need. And spread the word to your neighbors. You can make a tremendous difference in many lives. THANK YOU SO MUCH. Please become involved at

There Is Another Place..... 600 Light Years Away!

Kepler 22 b is a planet that has been identified as a planet we could live on with a temperature of 72 degrees very near our living environment. Kepler-22b is 600 light years away. A light year is the distance light travels in a year, about 6 trillion miles (10 trillion km). How do we get there? Space experts have long thought that the embryo of person could be preserved for many years on board a space craft propelling towards the planet like the Kepler 22b. As it came with in 20 some years a machine would activate the  process of human development and the human would be born and raised in the space craft so it was ready to start life once it landed. Do we fire off the space ship now? Are we ready to do such a bold move?
