Today (April 22) is Earth Day, 2018



Earth Day is an annual event celebrated on April 22. Worldwide, various events are held to demonstrate support for environmental protection. First celebrated in 1970, Earth Day events in more than 193 countries are now coordinated globally by the Earth Day Network.
On Earth Day 2016, the landmark Paris Agreement was signed by the United States, China, and some 120 other countries. This signing satisfied a key requirement for the entry into force of the historic draft climate protection treaty adopted by consensus of the 195 nations present at the 2015 United Nations Climate Change Conference in Paris.
In 1969 at a UNESCO Conference in San Francisco, peace activist John McConnell proposed a day to honor the Earth and the concept of peace, to first be celebrated on March 21, 1970, the first day of spring in the northern hemisphere. This day of nature's equipoise was later sanctioned in a proclamation written by McConnell and signed by Secretary General U Thant at the United Nations. A month later a separate Earth Day was founded by United States Senator Gaylord Nelson as an environmental teach-in first held on April 22, 1970. Nelson was later awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom award in recognition of his work. While this April 22 Earth Day was focused on the United States, an organization launched by Denis Hayes, who was the original national coordinator in 1970, took it international in 1990 and organized events in 141 nations.
Numerous communities celebrate Earth Week, an entire week of activities focused on the environmental issues that the world faces. In 2017, the March for Science occurred on Earth day (April 22, 2017) and was followed by the People's Climate Mobilization (April 29, 2017).


There are over 1,200 and nearly 1,500 national days. Don’t miss a single one.

1.     The WAPO AED group has two CPR Anytime kits that are intended to allow people to train themselves in hands-only CPR.  The time required to train yourself is about 30 minutes. 

2.     Each WAPO responder is trained in CPR as well as the usage of an AED. However, the first person on the scene is normally a spouse or other member of the household.  Thus, it is best for everyone to be trained in CPR.  Contact one of our facilitators to learn more:

a.     LarryEamigh   

     (352) 753- 7449  larry@eamigh.com

b.     Ross Irlam        

     (352) 561-4003  rossirlam@gmail.com

c.      JerryTumbush - 

     (352) 430-1657  jtumbush@hotmail.com

3. They will coordinate the availability of a CPR Anytime kit with Mini-Anne  for you to check out and learn CPR.


Here's how to use the Mini-Anne you just checked out:

      1.     Play the DVD inside the CPR Anytime Kit.  The DVD includes instructions for inflating the mannequin.  There are sanitizers in the kit if you wish to sanitize the mannequin before inflating it.  There is a clicker in the mannequin that clicks when you have depressed the chest of the mannequin sufficiently.  Some people will have trouble making the clicker click.  Do your best and remember what is said on the DVD, “Any CPR is better than no CPR.”

a.     When the DVD initializes, select English.

b.    Select “Learn Adult Hands-Only” CPR and follow the verbal instructions.

c.     If you wish to practice, select “Practice Hands-Only CPR” on the DVD.

     2.     There are other lifesaving related topics on the DVD that are available to watch.

      3.     Please return the CPR anytime kit when you are finished with it to Larry and thanks for learning CPR.

So why link to sites that are NEVER available?  Good question. Let's start a quest to find sites that are more amenable. (Of course, you may have to click around to find the right game but.......and then there's the advertisements you have to suffer through.... but all-in-all it does get you to some games to sooth your mind.)

NOTE:  You may be using up any data time you signed up for unless you have an unlimited plan....

For the most part, I have avoided any site that wants you to "sign up" or give them information (that can only be used to try to sell you something or is needed to put you on a list that others obtain). Avoid these type of sites at all costs.  The hassle just isn't worth it.....

"Listen to the Music" is a song recorded by The Doobie Brothers on their second album Toulouse Street. This song was The Doobie Brothers' first big hit in 1972, it remains a concert staple and is one of The Doobie Brothers' biggest hits. This song is usually played as the last song at The Doobie Brothers' concerts. It was written by Tom Johnston.

Writer Tom Johnston described the motivation for the song as a call for world peace:

"The chord structure of it made me think of something positive, so the lyrics that came out of that were based on this utopian idea that if the leaders of the world got together on some grassy hill somewhere and either smoked enough dope or just sat down and just listened to the music and forgot about all this other bullshit, the world would be a much better place. It was very utopian and very unrealistic (laughs). It seemed like a good idea at the time."[1]

The studio recording used both a banjo and a prominent flanging effect, audible from the bridge until the fadeout. When released as a single by Warner Bros. Records, the song peaked at number 11 on the Billboard Hot 100 in November 1972.[2]

The commercial success of "Listen to the Music" helped the album Toulouse Street rise on the charts. The song remains a staple of adult contemporary and classic rock radio. The band also uses it as an encore song during live shows. It was written and sung by guitarist and vocalist Tom Johnston. Patrick Simmons, the second guitarist and vocalist in the group, sings the bridge of the song.

During the 1982 Farewell Tour, the song was the last one played on the set list as the encore with drummer Keith Knudsen singing the lead vocal.
